    Detecting Headstock Break???? How to know

    A patently false statement. A broken and repaired headstock cuts the value by half, regardless of how well it's done. The seller of an 'unseen broken headstock' (read: undisclosed) is a certified douche and deserves a baseball bat to the kneecaps.

    This. Is exactly why I love this place.

    Cool Pedalboard MOD.

    Thanks, Ernie! I've been using rubber bands and grease pencils. This is better.

    Strat sound on steroids = 3-pickup Firebird. If you have to have the Jazzmaster or Strat shape, drop three P90s or three Firebird pickups (not minihums) into one and add the big Allparts Strat neck ( https://www.allparts.com/SRO-W-Wide-Replacement-Neck-for-Stratocaster_p_3511.html ) and you're good to go.

  7. Yep. I used to buy the bulk shop box (25 sets) and had one batch with bad E and B string winds at the ball. D'Addario replaced them (even sent extras), but it sucked trying to figure out what the hell was wrong. I soldered the rest of the box and didn't have a problem after that.

    "Tele Guy" on a slippery slope

    Fastest Reverb sale ever?

    That's nothing - bubs has his stuff sold before he even gets it.

    "Tele Guy" on a slippery slope

    Sorry. Bubs is right. I come from a long line of swine. Love the Teles, though. Or should I say I love the sound of a Tele, but have tried and failed many times to bond with one. It just never sounded like it did in my head. I have tons of respect for anyone who can make 'em work like they're supposed to.
  12. Well Noonan, I'm really open to anything and threw this out there to get some opinions. I'm rarely go to music stores to try out gear (there's always something else that needs to be done), so I ask my most trusted adversaries...I mean, advisors....what they think. Great answers so far - some I hadn't considered. The ES-135, with its Les Paul-type layout, is the frontrunner at this point. And any of the Hamers. And the Midtown. And the.....

    Experience with Wedge Cabs

    Mojotone makes a slanted 2x12: http://www.mojotone.com/Cabinets_x/Cabinets_xx/British-Style-Guitar-Amplifier-2x12-Slant-Speaker-Extension-Cabinet Like the Bogner, the speakers are kittycorner but with the top one angled. Its got 4x12 punch and the size/weight of a 4x10. Mine has Hellatone 60s and is nicest-built cabinet I've owned. They also make a similar one with a steeper angle. Lopoline used to make a slant cab that had the speakers stacked so it had a much narrower footprint (I see Mojotone owns them now). I use mine with the bottom speaker removed. It's not as tank-like as the Mojotone, but the narrow size is perfect for crowded stages and under smaller heads (like a SuperChamp or Frenzel). It sounds pretty damn good. ETA: I like the taller slanted 2x12s (as opposed to the horizontal wedge type) because it keeps the amp knobs within easy reach.
