Re: Show us your pedalboard

Two boards. One is more analogue in nature for the sweet office toanz, the other is my gigging board. They're both great, but for noodling around at home the Supro Trem, Topanga Reverb and Alter Ego on the analogue(ish) board is hard to beat. Oh, that Elon ripoff is simply outstanding. Like my Blue...

Re: Show us your pedalboard

I used to have one of those little Malekko choruses. Very luscious pedal. What make is the Centaur clone, Grant? Yeah, I like every Malekko I've played. It's one of the $100 ones off eBay. Came from China I think. I don't know if every one will sound this good...maybe. I sold my real Klon KTR (whic...

Re: Truss rod nut slipping?

It (the end) could also be pulling through softer wood. Is the rod end getting longer? Sorry if you’ve mentioned that - eyes tired!

Re: Who in Wgtn does finishing work?

Sounds unusual but a car paint shop could match it in poly/acylic, and then you could get it into an aerosol. Might cost. $100 for the mixing etc, but you’d get real close and modern car paint is good for guitars, generally speaking.
Does it have a logo? Have to manage that too if so.

Not sure who is doing finish work down there. It would be very difficult to match existing colour, as an aside. Especially so with metallics.

Re: Oops, I'm a PRS...here's a Gibson.

Well, P 90s will have some hum. However, not what you’re talking about. Maybe check the Earth and consider some shielding in the )tiny) cavity?

Looks great. Well done!

I'm pretty sure I've got most of the guitar. I split it up into bit for other builds quite a while ago.
Phew. I hope you shaved that fat neck to make it thin. And cut the ugly JM horns off. And that gold pickguard was gaudy. a Mother of Toilet seat one would be more fitting.

Re: Offset chat

I put together a Jazzmaster Partscaster. MJT ash relic body, fender Japan strat neck that has been scalloped, 60's Fender Tremolo, mastery bridge, Jess Lorenzo wide range humbucker pickups. Plays really well, and is really resonant unplugged. Haven't adjusted the pickups properly yet, but they soun...

Our good lad Robbie has almost finished the Olympic white and vintage tint refin on the harvester.

Worst spring/summer ever.
We’ve been hitting 70% humidity here…no chance of spraying for weeks

Re: 8ohm head into 16ohm attenuator into 16ohm cab. Bad idea?

If the Fender is an old one, it will be OK 100% mismatched into a cab. Attenuators...nah. They need to match the amp. You could still mismatch the speaker into the attenuator by 100% (maybe....), but yeah, amps and attenuators are best matched. So your current setup is correct. Marshall, I don't kno...
