Re: Momentary lapse of reason: Squier Paranormal Offset Tele in Shell Pink

Looks very pretty. How are you getting on with the 3-saddle bridge?

Sorry to hear about your your father, and how lovely of your daughter. Sounds like you and your wife have taught her well.

NMGBD (advisory: some mandolin content)

New Mandolin Gig Bag Day! Today I was in Southampton, where there is branch of Hobgoblin Music . Hobgoblin have a fantastic range of acoustic instruments but my wife wasn't feeling too good so I only stayed long enough for my stated purpose, which was to buy a mandolin case or gig bag. They did have...

Re: New Pedals from Orange

They've re-issued the vintage Distortion pedal with a new circuit design? Doesn't that make it *not* a re-issue of the vintage pedal?

Re: Pre CBS custom colours

I must say, none of those with gold scratchplates look good to me. I can see it on burgundy or CAR but I don't like it on any of those.

Re: pictures of your guitars here

I was digging around in the parts boxes to find the original TONE knobs (still missing) when I came across these. The volume pot moves very freely, so a thought struck me - using a smaller knob would make it harder to move accidentally. I thought it looked quite cool, a little different and customis...

An elegant pairing.
Where do you go on a driving holiday? Round Tassie or take the Spirit over to the mainland?

Re: pictures of your guitars here

Well, I managed to find the original bridge pickup, pickup covers and back plate for my son's old Squier Strat today but still didn't find the two Tone knobs (tone is all in the knob :shock: ) so I pulled off the volume knob and put some cheap effect pedal knobs on it for the gig today. I think they...

In the UK it probably doesn't help that the pound is down against almost every currency.

Titanium nuts? That's one up on balls of steel.

Re: Fixing a bass tuner

I have a Chinese-made J-bass which had that problem after I bumped it into the ceiling in a pub. I tried crimping it tighter, unsuccessfully. I ended up buying a replacement set, from someone on here actually. I think soldering it would discolour the finish, but it might be worth trying - dismantle ...

Re: Wah

Seagull effects. Used on "Echoes". I discovered this by accident plugging my Strat into the CryBaby the wrong way round.
