    A while back i refretted a 70's Greco telecaster for a relative and while testing it out though my rig i caught the tele bug. Wasnt able to find one of those Grecos decently priced or one that didnt need a ton of work so i decided to just make a tele. Should have this finished in the next week...

    I was looking at pcpartpicker last night and apparently they made a site for building bikes. Figured you guys might like it so you can build more carbon fiber bikes. :yesway: https://cyclingbuilder.com/

    Sold my OS slant C90 Mesa cab for $650, and its replacement traditional straight little v30 brother will cost me $400. Sold some PA speakers for what I had into it (400), and that is going to a 6505+ for $450. New rig and a $200 profit!! And the wife doesn't know!! And whenever my Roadster...

    Basdically, going to build a few pedals, and am going to put together the bill of materials. Thing is, what tolerances should i go for, and what resistor types? Or should I just not worry too much... In a nutshell, do I go nuts on tolerances and resistor types (ie metal film etc) or do I just...

    Saw this on FB and some here might have an interested watching it, mainly for the Neck Heel (or lack of it): Seems he Scalloped all frets but then at the end they seem regular. Went to check this guy FB page and he has really nice stuff, Classical, Electrics, all look extremely pro made.

    I've been kind of gassing for a tele as of late and the offset/Jassmaster teles in particular. Here is a PS mockup I put together of what I am shooting for. My wife has been watching some videos on youtube about fluid painting with acrylic paint and I thought it would make a pretty interesting...

    Rocka Explorer build (major update 2017-06-25!) A few weeks ago I found a dirt cheap ($70) 3-piece mahogny paddlehead neck (Allparts I think) on a swedish auction site, and the seller was actually located in my exact same area (that never happens in a small town like this) so I took it right...

    On my Les Paul build, I've made a neck that I'm not very happy with as it has come out pretty messy in general, with the whole thing being too thin, the laminate parts being lop sided and only the central part being quarter sawn. I'm planning on making a replacement neck, but this time 3 piece...

    Right now I gig with two pedalboards, two Palmer Pedalbay 60L Lightweight Variable Pedalboards, the two boards are almost identical in every way except for one having a Wah Wah pedal at the start of the board, and the DigiTech Whammy 5th Generation Guitar Effects Pedal as the last pedal in the...

    So I decided to build an amp, from parts. Partially due to the confidence gained from fixing a jcm800 and thinking "how hard can it be". Anyway, I've settled on blogging about it, and anyone interested can follow it here: How to Make Friends and Electrocute People I'll post updates in this...

    Musickraft makes necks and bodies as standard items. Crooks also emailed them and they'll do 24 3/4" scale 7 string conversion necks, too. So a 7 with a topmount Floyd is in my future.

    basically he had a bunch of factories build them to find the best one. They will start shipping in nov.

    Played these beauties this evening. Damn, the JVM kicks ass. Kinda noisy, but really good. The 6505+? I stand by my ages old statement that the cleans are mediocre at best. But the crunch and gain? Wow. It's really a two channel amp with no clean channel. And for what it is, a damn cool amp...

    For the few Aussies on here, there's a guy who's doing a 2 day workshop on building and designing valve amps which includes building a 15w amp. I'm totally gonna jump on board as it's right around my birthday and building amps has been one of my highest priorities on my list of things to learn...

    After the success with the Telexplorer last year, my dad asked me if I wanted to try a different kit this year. So, I ordered a korina (white limba) SG Junior kit. Out of the box, it needed some finish sanding to get rid of sanding scratches and prep it for finish. However, beyond that, the...
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Both left, and right hand, for the record. I used to be able to run quick scales, sweeps, tremolo picking, etc. but I've spent so much of my last year of playing focusing on expressive/ legato techniques(vibrato, bends, pre bends, pre slides, slides, etc etc) that I have totally, and completely...

    Hi all, I will sound batshit mad by saying this but I've got this old CD player that managed to bugger up and I want to make an amp out of it. I'd preferably like to make it solid state and I'm just wondering if anyone has any high gain yet simple circuit diagrams? Cheers

    Hi guys, so I haven't been playing live for years, due to my schedule/uni/exams. The hardest part will be over in September so I am planing to buy stuff to play live again. I sold EVERYTHING. Had a Laney VH100R, an Axe Fx Std, cabs. So I am pretty familiar with both, analog and digital. So...
