  1. First of all, I apologize for those of you who belong to other forums that I do where I have posted this same thread. I just figured if I'm fishing, I should throw out as much bait as possible. Anyway, I have a wonderful Dot Studio which I am going to mod with 1) GFS Retrotron Liverpool pups - I'm gonna give these a shot at putting in myself 2) Bigsby B7(00) - Not sure if I feel comfortable doing it myself, although that youtube video is really good Questions: Has anyone here played the Liverpools through a semi-hollow? Can I add a 2nd volume and tone to add some complexity to it?
  2. So, short of buying a whole new guitar, what could you salvage from that besides a knob? Ack!
  3. I think this could be said about most guitars, you tinker, you play, you replace a pup, you play, you replace a pot, you play, you replace a nut, you play. I don't delve into the heavy stuff, but I am seriously considering a bigsby for my dot studio. It's a great platform to work from. Sometimes, I just like tinkering on it, listening to some music, getting really focused on that. Personally and this is my opinion only, focusing on a repair works the other side of the brain, while playing molds the creative side. Gotta keep things balanced
  4. I have a worn cherry Dot Studio, I think it has WC on the label. Upper left
  5. Could he find an elitist for that?
  6. Where's a good place to find people to play with, I don't want to join a band, definitely not skilled enough to do that, but just want to find some people to jam with that won't be frustrated with my lack of skills. I know that playing with others really helps improve your skills and would like to find people interested in the same type of music who are willing to put up with my learning curve. Thanks again all.
  7. I love my vj half stack, along with the bitmo trio mod, it's a good little amp. not really portable, but I don't travel much.
  8. Sorry, I meant no disrespect at all, she is beautiful. And you put some bleed and sweat into her. bleed and sweat?? ack, long day today.
  9. Thanks guys, got past the plateau and back to the joy of playing and learning again. I knew it would pass, just bummed it happened so soon. Going to a training class and thinking about bringing my dot studio and vox amplug with me, rather than sit in front of a hotel tv.
  10. That is gorgeous! The only thing I would do differently, and this is totally a matter a preference is use these:
  11. Honestly, 'big ticket' items like guitars and such have minimal markup compared to cables, strings, etc. I used to sell mountain bikes and the markup was very minimal. We made up for it with component prices, clothing etc. I really doubt it's more than 20 - 30%. Just guessing, but going on a similar pricing scale (entry level mountain bike = 250/300 bux entry level guitar 250/300 bux) not talking about walmart bikes here, but specialized, trek, cannondale, etc. Same things could be probably said for Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, etc.
  12. See a doctor, please. Also be very open minded of the practice of acupuncture. It works. That's really all there is to it. I had tennis elbow and 2 cortisone injections did nada, 3 acupuncture treatments and I was good to go. They've been doing it for a few thousand years, us western folk need to give that some creedence.
  13. In the limited time I've had to play one, I have to go with a Les Paul, although, I've been playing with a Tele, and I think if it was a choose 1 only, if I had a chance to play the Tele more, I think I'd go with that.
  14. So sorry to hear that, this seems to be a week with a dark cloud over it for several people I know. I am sorry to hear that about such a good kid.
