  1. Sorry guys, I am sure I am not the first one asking this, but......... What is going on? When did this change happen?

    1. duane v

      duane v

      We switched over to a new froum platform

  2. I already play a bit of guitar, and I am thinking on taking up the bass also. Could anyone recomend a decent learning program or websites? I would appreciate any info regarding strings, scale, bass brands, etc.... Kinda weird there is not more threads pertaining to bass questions. Thank you in advance.
  3. Lets say I have two Gibson 490R pick ups. One comes with a single conductor wire, and the other has a four conductor wire. Both the are the same pick up, but w/different conductor wirings. (one you can split, and not the other) Will the fact that each have different conductor wirings affect the tone when installed? Does the difference in conductor wiring cause them to sound different, even when they are the same kind of pick up?
  4. I'm having a brand spanking new harness that Twang built for me installed, and changing pickups. I'm leaning towards having it installed in the neck and not the bridge. The 498t is pretty hot as it is.
  5. Listen to your favorite guitar players, and check out their gear.
  6. I am going to use a pair of Gibson 490r/498t, with .022 400v caps, and 500k pots.
  7. Hmmmm..... 50s wiring. Tell me more.
