  3. "Flying In A Blue Dream" - Joe Satriani
  4. Not in series but in parallel. Presume you have the version with one vol and one tone? There is no mention of a series wiring arrangement in the spec. http://legacy.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2015/Memphis/ES-339-Studio.aspx The 2016 model had 2 vol and 2 tone - https://www.andertons.co.uk/gibson-es-339-studio-guitar-in-ginger-burst Nice guitar btw!

    Win 11?

    And THAT has been going on for many years; they fix it so the older devices slow down too (so I've read). Something about the Snow Leopard OS was it? I shouldn't moan then!

    Could you explain please? What did he write that is 'incorrect'?

    Thankyou. No; bigger/wider - think ES 336 or 339. More pics to come next week I hope. Epi case for Wildkat fits at £108 new, I'm thinking about it. If I was to take it on gigs...if if etc....
  10. Generally - Guitars usually have nitro or poly or some kind of varnish finishes. Nitro is the most delicate one which can be easily ruined. The other types are much harder-wearing and not too different from wood furniture finishes. However alcohol or abrasive-based cleaners should not be used on any of these finishes IMO. It may be ok on a dirty (unvarnished) fretboard though. Forum members please correct me if I'm wrong.
  11. Jimmy Smith - "The Sermon" CD. Great session with Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, Kenny Burrell and more. The new John McLaughlin - "Liberation Time" - under 37 minutes long but he's still ripping off the solos and it bursts out of the speakers.

    Win 11?

    Wow, vintage dual floppies! And I can see your last line. Tsk. "Trusted Platform Module". Well.......

    Win 11?

    I'm ok with Win 10, works for me. But I'm rankled - is that the word? - that my processor apparently won't work with Win 11...why not? Imagine this forum with video, so you don't read the posts but listen to whoever....telling you you're wrong. I don't know how that might be moderated (AI bad language/aggressive tone algorithm?) but think it could ultimately improve social media etiquette.
  14. No no no. Absolutely not. Nope.

    Win 11?

    It goes up to 11..... Or maybe not. I downloaded the pc health check, ran it and have about 3 issues, one of which is - my processor isn't supported. It's an Intel Core i5-6600 CPU 3.30 GHz. Huh? I'm not binning it yet. Support for Win 10 continues until Oct 2025. Are they going to update the vaccine chips too?
  16. What web page? Pic? Link? You'll need to do some searches - https://www.google.com/search?q=custom+engraved+guitar+pickup+covers&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwismfjclbnzAhVQ0YUKHXNJDdgQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=custom+engraved+guitar+pickup+covers&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQDFDeywJY3ssCYKneAmgAcAB4AIABSIgBSJIBATGYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZ8ABAQ&sclient=img&ei=qFxfYaylLtCilwTzkrXADQ&bih=1075&biw=1903&client=firefox-b-d&hl=en Good luck. And welcome to the forum....
  17. "Sex, Sleep, Eat, Drink, Dream" - King Crimson
  18. Usual swim this a.m. And I made one of the world's greatest fried bacon sandwiches today. I know because I ate it. Hot.
  19. Very nice too. Welcome to the forum.
  20. "Sue's Changes" - Charles Mingus
  21. Amazing! I've saved that one. I like the bit in the shade on the left, is that on your property? You've got rainbows and house is looking good
