  3. In Topic:ABR-1 bridge - loose fit

    01 June 2017 - 02:17 AM

    Not good if the wiggle changes intonation. Is the bridge loose on the post or are the screw posts loose in the body?

    You might consider locking tonepros. Two thumb wheels on a post is a good old trick to lock the height of the bridge.

    If you change strings, just use masking tape to hold the thumb wheels and the bridge to the body.
  4. In Topic:Sticky neck issues?

    Epi's have polyester finish. You can use 1000 grit sandpaper and lightly sand in circular motion to get a satin finish. This prevents your damp hands from sticking to the smooth surface. Similarly, Fender has satin plyurethane neck finish to prevent stickiness on their American models.

    I don't hesitate to do the same with all my Gibson nitro finish. It eventually dries up or you can easily use a polish to gloss it up again. After a few years nitro lacquer hardens and won't be as sticky.

    The old days, I used talcum powder before playing...dryer your hands and not as sticky.
  5. In Topic:ES-345 Tone(s) Question

    18 May 2017 - 11:09 PM

    The stock pickups on the ES-345 stereo like yours and mine were purposely out of phase. So in the middle position you'll notice a drop in volume as well as tinny sound (if you use a mono cable with the two hot points connected in the TRS plug to the guitar). You can play it in stereo with two amps. If you play with one amp, it has to be a two separate channel amp. One channel is usually 180 degree out of phase with the other channel; so with the ES-345 stereo out of phase pickups, everything comes out OK.

    If you decide to use one amp as you did by connecting the two hot wires together... you can rotate the magnet of the non-standard pickup. Find out the pickup that is not the standard orientation by using a compass. The standard Gibson has the screw coil as South.

    Do you have a PAF sticker under your pickups or a patent number stamped?

    As far as amps, it depends on the venue you play. I use anywhere from a small 15W Blues Junior tweed, Blue Deluxe tweed, DRRI, or a Marshall DSL1000. Since I only jam in small bars (100ppl max), my Blues Jr tweed (or two) is perfect.

    Yes, it is. Thanks! I got it in 1967 and still have it in good shape. Dents on frets and divots on the fretboard.
