    Upgrading my LP Std.

    I have put the time to get my 2000 LP Std tuned up and playing well again as it had been neglected for far too long. I am looking the electronics next. The plate is coming out. I will probably shield the cavity because I can. Never a bad idea I think. I am thinking of going with this for the...

    What pickups are you non PAF types using?

    I have tried a a set of Seth's that I love in other guitars as well as a set of SD Antiquities. The Seth neck is good but the bridge is a bit bright. The bridge Ant feels a little thin and lacks a little oomph. The neck Ant is boomy.. As I recall the neck and bridge metered out close but the...

    I have been starting to tinker with certain instruments again. I just finished a cleaning and setup of my 2000 LP std. I have been debating replacing the 300k pots on the neck pickup with 500k to brighten that up a bit. I have been debating the possibility of removing the plate, shielding the...

    Gold AC powered deja vibe cauing huge hum

    Just wrapping up a new pedal board build and I have an issue. Generally all is well but the board is causing a huge hum in the audio. The pedals are all powered by 2 PP2+ units with 3-4 2-1 adapters to get juice to everything with the exception of my MXR 10 band EQ and my Gold AC powered deja...

    Bulgin Plug

    The plug on my amp is deteriorated and a bit of a mess. I would like to replace it with something more modern and frankly, a little safer. What is out there to replace it that would not require modifying the chassis?

    Speaker for fender sounds

    Setting up a pair of ISO cabs. 1 for fender sounds and the other Marshall. I have the Marshall side covered in terms of speakers but I am not sure where to look on the fender side. WGS has a few things that may be possible. The Eminence speakers I have tried sound good but are not "traditional...

    Experience with Various Greenback Clones

    Looking at the various greenback clones for a new 2x12 cab I am ordering. Unfortunately two original greenback are only 50w which is not enough power handling. Been looking at the Emi Private Jack, Scumback M75's, WGS Invader and Reaper HP. What are your experiences with these or other...

    Vintage Marshall Cabs for Sale

    Cab1 - $700 I have dated this cab to 1973. The wiring appears original and the speakers all date to January 1973. Except for a possible recone of one speaker(no cone markings), this cab appears to me to be original. The wiring etc appears to me to be unaltered. - Speaker Codes - 1x T1221 /...

    Where do you guys do you your shopping for old amps and cabs? I have 2 old Marshall 4x12 cabs that I want to move and have not gotten much interest from places like TGP or the SD forum. CL is a waste and feebay is not a real attractive option although it may be the best one these days. Whats the...

    Updating Electronics of my 2000 Std

    My 2000 Std has Seth lovers but the rest of the electronics are stock. I an thinking of pulling the plate everything is mounted to and going old school with the guts. That said I need to know a few things. 1) Would I just need standard 500k long shaft pots once the plate is removed? 2) If I...

    Shipping 4x12 Cabinets

    What do you pack them in/with? What carrier do you use to ship? I am considering selling a couple of my 70's 4x12's but shipping seems like it would be a real PITA. How are you guys handling it?
