  1. I would love to put a pick guard on my Union Jack Sheraton, but I can't find any online. Since the pickups are mini-humbuckers I can't find anything that will work. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
  2. Hey, I bought a Union Jack Sheraton. I love it, it sounds awesome. The only drawback I've noticed is that if I really dig in, the strings between the bridge and tail piece 'chime' a lot. I like the tail piece, I think it looks very nice on the guitar. It seems to stay in tune nicely, and you can bend the strings a mile. Has anyone else noticed this? I've put tape on the strings in that area and it seems to help, a lot. I'm just wondering if anyone else has any solutions. Thanks, Yoda
  3. Where you been at?

  4. Happy New years

  5. Merry CHRISTmas

  6. hmmmm....friends we are now...hmmmmm

    sorry I am a huge sci fi geek so couldn't help myself!! cheers for the add

  7. Yeah, I'm fine. I'm just not really liking the "new" web board, and it seems to be the same old $hit different day.

  8. Hi Yoda,

    Haven't seen you post in a while; hope things are okay in Wisconsin.

  9. Why do you care so much if people like Gary Moore so much? I mean I have my favorite musicians, and I don't care if no one else likes them.
  10. Well I should be, I took 6 years of electronics, and work as a technician. You are misunderstanding inductance; in short, in a low current application a coil, any coil, acts as a low-pass filter. They use them in crossovers for this effect, and they are not in "high current" applications. You cannot amplify inductance. The properties of the coil were discovered by Nikola Tesla, and he pretty much devoted his life's work to their research. In short, any coiled cord will have an inductive effect on your signal. That being said I would not use a coiled cord, unless that is the "sound" you are looking for, some artists will deliberately alter their signal to get "that sound".
  11. If I remember my electronics schooling, I thought the "tone suck" with coiled cords wasn't so much the length as the fact that they act as a filter. They have an inductive effect on the guitar signal. Inductors act as "low pass" filters, filtering out the highs. I think the new ones are better because they are shielded, but they still have signal loss due to the length.
  12. This has always be my favorite beer drinkin' song, well Whisky really. Yes Whisky spelled with no "e", that's how Scotch and English Whiskys are spelled; not Whiskey. A few "rocks" and I'm good!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biMGUTpISFo
  13. Yes Hedwig was made into a movie. Not right now, but we are working on it.
