My 5 string is 34" and its not floppy even at drop A.

What’s your Fiver?
Ibanez GSR205

Actually considering taking the pickups out and putting some emg's in it so i have a neck p and bridge humbucker in it.

I really need to get a P, but cant really justify it.
How much does the present Bass boost do?
Would you get a new preamp if changing to EMG?
Genuine Old Frontier Gibberish

It does a bit, but I usually turn it off as I'm usually trying to play punk with it and it doesnt sound natural to me, though I got it to keep up with my baritone guitar.

Ill probably not run a preamp as the emg's have their on preamp inbuilt.

Also running it digital, normally so have preamps in the HX stomp.

Picked up my Legacy, clean version, footswitch and a decent speaker cable :D
Trying to figure out if I plug it into my Celestion Blue, will it kill it? :)
I may wait until I build a Marshall 1960B when I get to the new house.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I've got nothing in the collection to offer you either. There was the THD cab but I sold that to Molly. No idea where it is now.

I'm sure it will handle it, I'll just keep the volume down low.... Are you a man or a mouse?

You're probably the kind of nay sayer who complains that using a guitar lead as a speaker cable would burn the house down.

This is exactly my point: 100 watt amp into a 15 watt speaker and I'd never consider you a mouse!

Just cut the speaker cable in half and solder in a volume pot.

I'm put my name down about two and a half years ago. Hopefully halfway there...

It'll be fine, I'll just use an old guitar cable and twist the wires. Solder is just so over the top.

Thinking about it, I could do that with the input cable, put a pot in it, that'll attenuate the input as well!
