  1. Apparently they do not if Prime delivery is two weeks out. I'm going to let it ride and see if they come through. It's not like a Jet Phaser is an essential item. I would expect more from Muse's muse however.
  2. Warning! I placed an order on Friday through the linked Reverb ad. At the time there were 2 units in stock according to the listing. I received the following message from the seller today: Hello, Thank you for your order and we appreciate your business. Although we try our best to maintain 100% accuracy with inventory, there are still rare occasions where we experience an inventory error. An example would be when two customers buy the same item at around the same time on two different places. We regret to inform you that we are currently out of stock of the item you purchased. We have contacted the manufacturer regarding your order and expect to hear back shortly with availability and have every intention to expedite your order once the product is received. In the meantime our sales staff would be happy to speak with you regarding your order and to see if there may be other alternatives to your original purchase. As always, we are also happy to refund you in full as well. Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. Look forward to hearing from you. Pit Bull Audio
  3. ? I don't understand. πŸ˜• Never mind. The yawny face was showing on my screen as a plain rectangle. I thought it might be some sort of inner circle code.
  4. I put this one together with a JHS Prestige boost, Mooer chorus and delay and TC Electronics poly tuner in mini form. The Fish Factory incorporates two drives in a single enclosure so it's arguably a mini as well. Sounded great but I had to either use the side of my shoe or wear cowboy boots to hit the switches.
  5. There is a lot of speculation and debate over the audible differences between different types of capacitors in guitar circuits. The majority opinion seems to be that values matter and type of construction doesn't. The issue with 920D's behavior is that the PIO caps sell for $28.00 and the Mojo dijon caps sell for $1.50. They wrapped the $1.50 cap in a PIO cover and charged the PIO price.
  6. Link to TGP Thread Not sure if the link will work if you're not a member at The Gear Page. You can find the thread by searching "With genuine paper in oil capacitors" in the Luthier's Guitar & Bass Technical Discussion sub-forum. Interesting. Apparently a company that sells prewired pickguards and parts has been intentionally mis-labelling cheap caps and selling them as boutique PIOs. Hello $hit. Meet fan.
  7. As the proud owner of shares of Green Bay Packers Stock I understand the appeal. πŸ˜† NFTs can have actual value when they represent fractional ownership of tangible assets, but this ain't that. If Rick was selling ownership shares in the actual guitar, rather than an image, it would be more interesting.
  8. Put black screws on that pick guard and it would look fine. Actually improves the unfortunate finish.
  9. The bridge appears to be an improvement, so it's got that going for it.
  10. Lollartrons drop right in, original mounting rings fit. Gretsch original Filtertrons will not fit.
  11. Based on the bottom photo, I wouldn't put much faith in this seller.
  12. The Springsteen Telecaster, according to Rick Petillo, had four pickups and four output jacks. No mention of more than one control plate. "According to the late Petillo, Springsteen's guitar had originally been owned by a record company and featured an incredibly shady installation of "four pickups wired into extra jacks that would each plug into a separate channel on the recording console." Made by routing out a significant area under the pickguard, this mod would ensure that session guitarists would earn four times typical union pay for playing four slightly different versions of the same guitar solo. " This actually makes sense as an early method of mechanical multitracking. The payola story sounds contrived to me, but I guess it's possible. Linking the Springsteen guitar to the abomination for sale on Reverb is pure B.S. IMO
