    So I'v been jonsin hard for a 1570 in Dorthy's Shoe glitter red. Found this one. Thinking about picking it up, but whats with the one knob? This body either has to be refinished or aftermarket? Neck has the jCraft logo and what not, so I think the neck looks legit. This is being sold by a sam...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    It's really hard to get this right it seems, and it's absolutely imperative for live players for convenient pickup switching, and fast volume roll-off to control feedback and mute yourself when necessary. I'm putting together a new pickguard for my So Cal, and since I requested that the guard...

    Anyone have any tips/tricks/proven techniques for removing knobs off a 1991 guitar? They appear to have never been removed so I'm fairly convinced the metal on the pots has corrosion-welded itself to the actual knobs after 26 years of sweat, beer and God knows what else. They're on my '91 saber...

    Looking to sell this as I don't use it much anymore. It doesn't have any place on my board. It is a great, great pedal. I'm gonna build one at some point because I will miss it. I'd like to get $160 shipped, obo for it.

    Backstory here - I have this old Indonesian-made Squier P-bass with two J-bass pickups in it that I've actually been having a lot of fun playing lately - it's not a half bad sounding instrument, and I kind of want to swap out the pickups and electronics and see what sort of potential it has...

    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...

    Anyone use these? Been looking for something to use in the Gibson SG Baritone to make it match the Buckethead Les Paul in function but the reviews on these seem a but iffy. Some say it quits working after a while and seems really cheaply made. Looks like it'll fit with the thin SG body but the...

    Borrowing this from my guitar tech for live playing until my Elysian RG7621 arrives. I was previously playing an LTD H207 with a single volume knob and a BKP Blackhawk. Which is not a very versatile pickup, and the guitar has mismatched 'whatever we could find lying around' tuners, as well as a...

    Arctic white I think is the color they call it. Plays great. Swapped the bridge for a Gotoh that has individual saddles. I still have the original I will throw in. Come with hard case. Some free home. The pic shows the volume knob off, but its there I pulled it to use on a different guitar while...

    A Mackie Big Knob that is. Was doing some tracking yesterday with the vocalist in my new band and the headache or having to send everything to a separate bus to output to 7-8 for headphone monitoring and having to manually fuck with everything made me pine for the days of having a Control 24...

    Does this exist? I do not do volume swells with my volume knob. I do, however, roll the volume knob down to clean up my amp. I would think it'd be cool to have a volume knob with either detents that are easy to feel, or a knob with say 5 or so positions to click into, to get an exact gain...

    Hi, I noticed something weird with the volume knob on my JP7. When I turn the knob up, I get some kind of humming noise when the knob is about 60-80% turned up, but when the volume is turned up all the way the hum is gone. I don't think this is ground-related as touching the string does not...

  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    How often do you guys adjust the setting of your tone knob? I leave mine at 10 pretty much all the time. Then I see these guitars that don't even have tone knobs. Anyone have a guitar without a tone knob and miss it?
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    From this thread: This tone has a metric fuckton of gain, but here's an example of how it can be used to tame some of the highs/brightness on an otherwise obnoxiously overdriven tone...

    Do you metal guys ever use your tone knobs or are they always wide open? Just wanting some opinions send from Droid

    So (as my FS ad will tell you) I bought the wrong size switch tip for my Carvin. It's a shame, because it looks fucking sweet in chrome. The tip I bought is this one: Metal Chrome Toggle Switch Cap for Gibson Tip Knob - eBay (item 150453342192 end time May-04-11 17:02:14 PDT) The tip I need...

    I won this on eBay: Metal Chrome Toggle Switch Cap for Gibson Tip Knob - eBay (item 150453342192 end time May-04-11 17:02:14 PDT) But it's the wrong thread size for my Carvin, it's too big. If you can use it, uh, paypal me two bucks and it's yours.

    I have an ESP KHII and the volume know is really easy to turn, i unintentionally turn it down while playing its starting to piss me off. Any ideas on how i can stiffen it up so it does not turn as easy, without replacing it
