  1. But wouldn't there be a hole showing though the body of the guitar, next to the TOM, where the trem bridge was?
  2. Hi, I want to get a Strat and put a TOM stop tail bridge on it. I guess I would need to get a hardtail Strat initially? I guess again that I would not be able to perform this mod on a trem bridge due to the trem cavity?
  3. Anyone know what guitar this is? I'm thinking it maybe a one off custom made. Really sweet looking guitar.
  4. The two cabs I am looking at are: Marshall 1936V - Vintage 30 Speakers http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Marshall-1936V-2x12-Vintage-Guitar-Speaker-Cabinet/MFY Marshall 1936G - Greenback Speakers http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Marshall-Custom-Shop-1936G-2x12-Speaker-Cab-w--Celestion-Greenbacks/O2O
  5. OK, so I know very little about amp rigs. I'm thinking of putting together what I think maybe a nice little rig: * Marshall 2x12 Cab with Celestion Vintage 30 12", 60watts/8 Ohm (RMS), 100db * Mesa Boogie Studio Pre Amp What power amps would you recommend? The majority of power amps I've seen are very high powered. Any Carver, Crest or Crown power amps out there that will fit the bill?
  6. I bought the above guitar new from Japan. I searched the serial number on The Guitar Dater Project website and got the result made 1994-1995. I can't beleive that this guitar has been at the back of a warehouse all this time.
  7. I am hoping to buy a Fender MG73/CO OTM next month, but it is proving difficult to find one as they are discontinued. I have contacted Ichibashi and they confirmed out of stock and it's rare to find one in their used section. I've have waded through other Japanese site to no avail. Is it rare to find this guitar for sale? I guess I will only find used?
  8. I want to record some guitar riffs I have and burn the tracks to CD. Can anyone suggest recording software/drum machine/guitar amp mic?
  9. Royal Blood @ The Globe, Cardiff, UK
  10. I like the one that looks like a Jagstang, but I would never spend that much on a guitar. I somehow stumbled across this website and thought I would share

  12. I changed the pickguard to red tort. I think it adds more character than the original white one.
  13. A belt buckle protector? Whatever it is it has 'Shellac' engraved on it. Thought I'd share a few more photos from the gig.
  14. I saw Shellac at The Fleece in Bristol, UK earlier this week and took a snap of Albini's rig. He's using a Fender Bassman amp head but I am not sure about the preamp/amp or the gadget on top of the Bassman.
  15. I read that Kurt Cobain used a Mesa Boogie Studio preamp and a Crown Power Amp (as shown in the photos below) I was wonder what the other gear in the racking was? The unit above the power amp looks to be Marshall. The top unit looks like a video cassette recorder There is also something on top of the flight case in one of the photos.
  16. What do you mean by 'pot is depressed and slightly flattened'? Sounds like how I feel sometimes Will too much heat damage a pot? Sorry for all the questions.
  17. I will buy some wire and have a go at tidying the electrics up. Do you recommend exposing a little more wire to the solder joint to avoid the wire being melted? Overall I need to practice my soldering and this is a good opportunity for me to improve.
  18. It's a brand new guitar and all wiring was untouched by me and still no tone control. I took a picture of the wiring before I attacked the pots with a solder iron and referred to the picture when soldering the joints. Thanks for the advise. I will have a go at cleaning up the pots. The pictures make the pots black and perhaps dirtier than they actually appear. Like I said it's all brand new. The loss of tone control happened before any soldering took place. Pots and wire are cheap so think I may start again with new electrics, if cleaning up the current pots doesn't work. Do 500k pots work well with P90's?
  19. Firstly, I would like to say that I am a novice at guitar mods. Since replacing the pickguard on my Eastwood Hi Flyer, I am unable to get any treble when rolling the tone knob on and off. I though it may have something to do with the foil shield on the back of the pickguard ( I used tin foil on the new pickguard ) So I fitted back on original pickguard but still no tone control. I decided to buy a solder iron and 0.33 Orange Cap. I touched up some of the joints and attached the new capacitor, thinking maybe one of the solder joint came apart during the pickguard change.... But still no tone control. The volume works fine as does the pickup selector switch. Any ideas?
