  1. You guys are the best! Thanks so much. That was super helpful. I had no idea that the ground wire had to be connected to a lug of the volume pots. That did the trick. For anyone who has the same situation and finds this thread, I also found this video from RS Guitarworks themselves to be very helpful. The technique of bending the lug up against the pot and soldering it to the back of the pot was new to me and worked well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqmioqe-_Xo Also, I have to say that the RS Guitarworks Modern Upgrade kit did just what I hoped it would. My old '77 Destroyer
  2. Thanks for the suggestions guys! Cool to learn about the options.
  3. My '77 Ibanez Destroyer has been a bit muddy sounding for a while now, so I decided to try the RS Guitarworks Modern Explorer/Flying V Upgrade kit. After installing the kit, the guitar sounds much better. The proverbial "blanket" indeed seems gone and the guitar has its high-end detail back and I'm delighted about that. However, I must have wired something incorrectly, as neither the neck or bridge volume controls will turn off completely. The volume controls seem to operate fairly normally, gradually reducing the volume level as the knob is turned down. But when the knob is turned a
  4. Thanks sixesandsevens. All I've done so far is plug a midi keyboard into the Model D and explore the sounds a bit. I usually use Pro Tools for recording, but I have Logic too, which I think is really set up more for midi stuff. I'll have to research a bit. Thanks for the suggestions.
  5. Can any of you synth folks recommend an inexpensive sequencer that would work with my Behringer Model D? I was thinking about the Korg SQ-1, but maybe there's a better way to get into sequencers. Here's the Korg SQ-1: https://www.korg.com/us/products/dj/sq_1/
  6. Very cool! I'm a guitarist, but I got one of those Behringer Model D Mini Moog clones, and it's really a lot of fun to play with. Your setup looks incredible. A lot of cool sounds in there.
  7. Cool. Is this you?: https://www.matrixsynth.com/2009/03/walking-stick-dual-cv-ribbon-controller.html
  8. Well that was fun! Thanks for posting mudshark!
  9. Hey thanks for the link! It's easy to overlook Matthias Jabs as he had some huge shoes to fill following Uli Roth and Michael Schenker. But he burns really nicely here for sure. He's not quite as speedy as the others, but there's an intensity to his playing (especially here) that's so cool. Plus Lovedrive-era Scorps are my fave. Have you seen the video to match the audio? I suspect it's the same show--Tokyo 1979. Appears it was filmed for a Japanese TV show. Now on YouTube. Lucky us:
  10. Bumping just to say, the guitar is sold. Happy as I am to sell it, I'll miss it. A real nice guitar. Thanks for all the support for the sale guys.
  11. You know, I'm not certain. But it seems a bit lighter than a 9 lb LP that I have. I'd guess it's about 8.5-8.75. Sorry I can't be more specific as I don't have a scale here.
