I like two pickups - but not wired like on a "Spanish" electric guitar (with a 3-way switch) - I prefer the Stringmaster setup: bridge pickup always fully on, neck pickup on a blender pot; t ...

I've installed my 4 best lollipop tuner pans. They shined up nice with Flitz.

Which Flitz do you use?

I flip it upright so it doesn't rest on the switch and strings during travel. It's not a big deal to flip it over to fit the legs.

There's a pedal I've been after called the Nocturne "Jr. Barnyard." It's supposed to give an octal tube preamp flavor to whatever amp you're using. Old amps from the 30's through the early 5 ...

With that case and plate logo, I'd guess 1970's.

It appears that your middle neck "blend pot" is a serious piece of costume jewelry. It looks like someone too =k out the original pot, rep ...

Bill Flores taught me to have a low Bb on the 7th string (strings 1-6 are a normal C6 tuning). This makes a very nice straight bar dom7 chord for comping.

After a full day of recording, that 8.1oz stainless bar of mine was getting real heavy (and painful to lift). Basil's bar is 4-5oz for the same dimensions. Hmmmmm

If I had a triple, I'd have a C6, C#m7, and B11 neck, but that's just me.

There's an Ernie Ball string gauge calculator out there somewhere that helps figure the gauges for each tuning.
