    Neck dive is improved with the button moved from the top there? The DoesItDoom guy suggested the opposite move on an SG, so I was curious. My London Grey one just shipped. Serial ends in "666". :eek:

    Hoping mine ships today. I like seeing all the fretboard variations. Seen several with a light or dark stripe running the length. I went with a darker fretboard, the lighter ones seemed to have a lot of natural voids in the grain, then noticed so does my rosewood fretboard on my ProJet.

    Aqua-Puss vs Carbon Copy vs Echoplex

    Love my Aqua-Puss mkII, although I only use it for slapback only using at most 2 or 3 repeats with the feedback dial, but if you like trailing echos, I would look elsewhere or mod the mkII. Checkout ToneGeek on YT for more info, demos, etc. I badly want to try out a Strymon El Capistan on...

    BT Broad'Tron Adjustment?

    Anyone know the recommended pickup height for BT Broadtrons or are they the same as BT Filtertrons? I assume the pole screw adjustment works the same way as well? Are these basically just wider BTFT's with more/less windings, or are there more substantial differences? Any idea how they stack up...

    Need toggle and momentary switches for a G5222

    So far this looks like the most quality momentary unit I'm seeing. Would think I'd have to drill out the hole more though which I'd really rather not do yet if avoidable. https://ironageaccessories.com/products/iron-age-guitar-kill-switch?variant=25682927368

    Need toggle and momentary switches for a G5222

    I'm looking to pickup a G5222 to slap some 11-49's or 11-52's on and see what I can get out of it in E/D/C tunings. I want to pull the pup vol pots and tone knob in favor of a kill switch (preferably "matching" the pup switch) and maybe even a momentary switch for some Matt Pike action. I just...

    MIC: Mental stumbling block…

    I'm that way with everything, until I am able to in some way make it my own and put my stank on it. LOVE my 5439! So much so, my 5420T sits, and I am thinking about getting some fret/plek work done soon. Maybe knowing your tone knob is mis-wired is enough to get you thinking about tearing into...

    Towner vs Biggs Fix?

    I went Towner on my 5439 and am very happy with it after I flipped it to where the bar was raised to its highest position. Mine in no way rolls though, as the angle of the mount tabs put are in a bind inside the hollow section, even after a little filing, but Towner told me that it is not...

    Downward pointing speaker

    Downfiring subs works well, in a truck or hatchback, or even home theater, but not sure about guitar amps. For that application I believe you want at least 1/3 of the speaker diameter in distance between the woofer and the floor to help with cancellation, etc. I did just build a plexiglass...
