    SOLD Wildwood Spec 1960 Les Paul VOS

    Just got this one on trade for a PRS. And it is a real nice one. Had to give it some pretty hard thought to decide to list it. But still need to downsize the collection. Weighs in a 8lbs 5oz and sounds amazing. Very resonant. The flames are extremely 3D and deep when viewed about 45 degree...

    Fralin PAF ?

    Hey I was just watching some vids on replicas and I came across one where the author said Max Baranet prefered Wizz and Fralin pickups as sounding the closest to real PAFs. I mostly use Wizz but was interested in ordering some Fralins to try. I have had their single coils but not the...

    Pickup alignment trick

    Was fixing some mis-aligned pickups on a fellow forum mates guitar I just purchased. Thought I would post a pic of a simple alignment trick. Just string up the high and low E strings and align across the pole pieces. Use 2 identical pickguards to further align/space pickups and help hold in...

    Marshall Internal Jumper Mod

    I was working on a JTM45 kit from Mojotone and thought I would post a quick photo of the super simple internal jumper mod so you no longer need the external patch cord to blend the channels on vintage Marshall style circuits. Just add a jumper wire between pin 2 and pin 7 on the first preamp...

    Just clearing out some spare parts and trying to make a few final decissions on which guitars to keep as I downsize the gear a bit more. Need your opinion on the 2015 True Historic 1960. Is it a keeper or if I do sell which would you prefer as a buyer - the zebras, creams, or aged nickel? Let...

    There was a discussion a while back about aging nickel parts. I did some pickups today and took a few photos to show the process. You need contained air space (zip lock bag, pyrex etc depending on part size), large swab, muriatic acid. CAUTION: wear eye protection and gloves. Do not attempt at...
