    I've still been tweaking the wiring on my Strat now that it's SSS, and after trying the "50's wiring" approach that doesn't require the traditional treble bleed cap + resistor (and finding the volume knob became way too aggressive), I ended up going back to the more traditional treble bleed...

    I have an old 2000 MiJ RG7421 that's been sitting around the house for a while now, I figured it's time I put a little effort into it and make it a real player. All the parts I ordered have finally arrived. Lundgren "The One" pups Hipshot Open-Gear Locking Machines Hipshot Fixed Bridge Dunlop...

    My amp (Mesa Studio 22) was made some time in the 80s. I don't know if it's ever had a cap job and I'm wondering if it needs one. The typical symptoms (apparently) are hum and flubby bass. I don't have either of those, but the sound is not as crisp as I remember a few years ago. Also, after...

    I wanna get back into day trading. Anybody know some good resources (or have advice) for trading stocks? Specifically small cap ones? Also,what brokerages do you guys use. I've had an account at zecco for about four years. They've changed alot of rules in ways that aren't beneficial to me (no...

    So I've put the passives in the soloist, but I don't have a tone wired in yet. Anyone have any experience with the RS PIO caps, the Angela copper PIO caps, the WRC caps, the Luxe reproduction bumblebees or the Vitamin Q caps? I fear that some of this is cork sniffing.... but I've never really...
