An unhelpful conversation has been removed. Oh Well

Seems like a real good price for a vintage Fender tweed amp, Bob. It should be living in a recording studio somewhere, to get "that sound" ...

Marty, that sounds like it was a very interesting experiment. I'm not competent enough to do that kind of work myself, so the drawings wouldn't help me much.

Do you still have that guitar? Who mad ...

The pull of cables on those old Fender guitars is a fascinating sound. It's not linear like the pull of a rod. It sounds more organic somehow, like it's bending on a curve. [url=http://quasar.users.so ...

For what it's worth, I've raised E to F# on my vertical in addition to the C pedal. The lever is great for ballads and shuffles, but you really need the change on a pedal for bouncy stuff.

I looked around and John Hughey had a knee that raised string 4 from F# to G and lowered string 2 from D# to D. One thing I like about that is having a solid stop to lower string 2 instead of relying ...

Having the F lever on LKL (with Emmons pedals) makes the transition for A+B to A+F feel very natural. There's an advantage to the left knee.

This may be sold (PM received).

I don't have a tape measure here. It fits a Fender Princeton, but the bevel angle is wrong and of course it's taller. Hope that helps.

The D'Addario poll got me thinking. Buddy's SIT set has .017 for the first string D. Seems a bit heavy to me. What do you use?
