    What´s the luthiers approach into vintage collapsed bridges?

    I saw that is a problem with almost all vintage ABR-1 style bridges. Owners let it that way, try to fix or just change them? Does the top wrap thing really prevent them against bending again? I have no vintage guitar, but I have two LP with abr-1 and since I started reading about this subject I...

    Question about 3 pickup Les Pauls.

    Usually the middle pickup it´s a "bridge" or a "neck one", regarding the output? I know that usually paf´s are made to turns, not to output, but in the end they usually placed the hotter in the bridge and the other in the neck position, but how about the middle ones? The other question is it...

I want to add a center pickup and both ways, vintage or this...

    Please, is that silicon on the bobbins?

    I´ve thinked once to place something to protect the open parts of a coil to protect it from moisture. Than I´m looking at this video, and at 1:00 to 1:04 there is something between te coils and in the suare holes, that looks like silicon. Is that what I´m thinking? Someone did that before?

    Howard´s Leese 1960 burst has one of my favourites bursts tone. On the edge of microphonics, bity, spanky sounding. The only two videos and info I´ve ever had of it are those two from Fretted Americana. Any clue where it sits now?

    Dimarzio 59 Pickup opinions

    Haven´t found any recent thread regarding them. No love for those? I didn´t know that they are unpotted, and as far as I know the obly unpotted pickup from Dimarzio. How they compare against the other famous paf clones?

    Jensen Ch12/70

    I´m after a good speaker for my classic 30. Many say that the original Peavey speaker is not that good and I want to try out something new.

    Different guitars and strap heights.

    Did you guys use the same height for every guitar or different heights for each guitar? I like my semi hollow a little higher, but can´t play with LP´s the same height. Maybe the thicker body,I don´t know. How about your toughts?

    Central lab pots

    Just saw three vintage Centralab 500k C2 pots on reverb. One reads 553, second 582 and third a 629 reading. Would those higher values open humbucker sound even more? Most regular CTS and Alphas reads a little bellow and a little above 500k range. Heard about CTS 550´s, but never tried or...

    Magnets position

    I´m about to change the magnets on a pair of humbuckers. They came with to pen marks on one side of each magnet. They should be place on the same side of each pickup? I don´t want a out of phase middle position. I noticed also, with to pairs of humbuckers I have, that when I put them cover to...
