    Has anyone ever opened a Nickel Covered Mojotone 59 Clone?

    So, I recently bought a set of Mojotone 59 clones. I love the bridge, but felt the neck was way too bass heavy. I was going to mail it back to Mojotone to have it looked at. It is abnormally bassy. Anyhow, I think I’m probably just going to keep it because I don’t want to go through a hassle...

    Mystery Wiring, No Capacitors - What's going on?!

    So I'm totally baffled by this wiring setup... Disclaimer, i'm not an electrician, but I'm an engineer and I've build a few pedals and modded a few amps so I'd put my capabilities at maybe 30% between layman and pro. I recently got a 2nd hand SG standard, really nice neck and resonant 1 piece...

    '59 PAF Talk

    Alright peeps, To all of you guardians of the knowledge, I was wondering something... And by the way, this is purely hypothetical: Are the humbuckers on a 1959 ES-335 the same paf as the ones on a 1959 Les Paul Standard? Or are they wound differently? And if you had a well made R9 and throw a...
