Topics I've Started

  1. Big thanks to Dub-T-123

    19 May 2017 - 06:48 AM

    I have a vintage ( guess you would call it that ) echo/reverb unit that I got in 1973-1975 some where in that time, and over time it started fading in and out .
    The effects would work and then just stop.
    I started talking to Dub-T-123 through the forum here, and he said he work look at it and see if it could be repaired.
    Ironic part of this is last year I moved to Florida, and he lives in So Ca. just a few miles from where I moved from.
    Anyway I boxed it up and sent it to him, and told him no rush and to get to it when he had time.
    Well he shipped it back to me and it works great.
    He told me most if not all the pots. were bad and some loose connections had to be repaired.
    Could not have asked for a better job.
    So many thanks to Dub-T-123 for a great job.
  2. Need help posting a video

    25 March 2017 - 06:40 AM

    I have tried multiple times to down load a video of a very young player but just can't seem to get the video to post using my I-Pad
    If anyone could check out the video and post one of them , I think every one would get a kick out if watching this 11 year old player, and be amazed at his playing for such a young age.
    His name is Toby Lee and it sounds like he is from the U.K. due to his accent, but he could be in the US.
    If you Google Toby Lee 11 year old guitar player, he has quite a few on You Tube.
    Videos of him playing songs by S.R.V. BB King and others.
    I think every one will enjoy the short clips if some one can post them .
  3. Just a little rant

    20 March 2017 - 09:53 AM

    About two or three weeks ago, I ordered a bunch of parts that I keep on hand because of the guitar refinishing I do .
    Just the basic hardware, Fender string tees, nuts, pick guards, neck plates and screws, strap buttons things like that.
    Most of the parts have already arrived, and while putting the parts away , I noticed some of these parts, even though they are Fender parts and not some crap made in Taiwan, they were not all manufactured the same.
    Different size screws for the necks, neck plates were not countersunk the same, some string tees have a nylon spacer and some have an aluminum spacer.
    Of course there may be slight differences with parts made in the US, or Mexico, Japan, but when you order multiple of the same part, you would expect the parts to be identical.
    When I work on say a Gibson, the only part that I have ever had an issue with are the pick up surrounds ( rings around the pick ups).
    I have come across a few of these that were not quite the same, but at least the differences were not so bad they could not be used.
    Think I might send some of the parts back, but who knows what I might wind up with when I order them again .
    I guess quality control is a thing of the past.
  4. Think I will surprise him . Done. almost

    17 March 2017 - 04:26 PM

    I posted some pictures last week of some guitars I was building for my brother .
    He picked up three of them, and then I got busy working on other guitars and had to put the his last one on hold for about a week.
    On the last one, the sea foam green Stratocaster style guitar, all I had to do was finish buffing out the body, and put on the pick guard, neck, and do a set up on it.
    I finished buffing out the body , and I heard some one knocking on the door to my shop.
    Not paying any attention to where my feet were and how I had some how tangled my foot with the electrical chord, as I turned to go answer the door, my foot pulled the electrical chord, which in turn pulled the newly painted body off my work bench smashing it my bench vise before it fell to the floor.
    The guitar body landed on the lower horn ( body cut away ) chipping the paint. Not a bad chip, but still enough to pi--- me off.
    I answered the door to some bone head neighbor wanting to borrow a tool.
    I handed him the tool, slammed the door as he left, looked at the chip in the new paint, and was so fu---- mad, I turned on my table saw and cut the body into four pieces !
    DAMN !!!
    So the last couple of hours I spent prepping another body for the sea foam paint color.
    I knew I should not have answered the door.
    I sure hope he likes the four guitars I put together for him.

    Think a little glue and some finish nails with fix it right up like new.
  5. Can you tell the difference ?

    Here are four different guitars, four different base coats (types of paint for the color coat ) and different types of clear coats.
    Which guitar stands out to you, ( not so much the color, but the finish and gloss.

    One of the guitars was painted over 35 years ago, and its holding up great.

    The first pic. made it look like it had a matte finish
