    Western Electric Survey for USA-made Tubes

    So, Brimar is actually manufacturing all the tubes currently listed in their catalog? I did not know their machinery was up to speed yet.

    Belated NAD... Supro Blues King 12

    I was driving through the area and decided to pull over and see who's home at ETSG. A post and thread by Mr Logan, and at also my favorite category: Amp & Cabs, caught my attention. First of all, congrats on what I'm sure is a fine amp. The style in which you articulate and communicate your...

    Precision Guitar Kits SG Special Project

    I know where you're going with this. You're itching to suggest the Kinman's (Zero hum): The world's greatest pickup... at least in my world, ha ha! If anybody's curiosity is piqued, the current versions of Kinman P90's are 1/8" deeper than a regular P90...

    I'm guessing that the sealer/filler will reduce the amounts of Tru-Oil needed? ... :hmm:

    Precision Guitar Kits SG Special Project

    That really is a bit weird. I'm assuming that CNC machines are used to drill the post holes. Should have been and easy adjustment to the CNC's parameters, even if PGK charged $50 for the option. But WTF do I know... :confused:

    Precision Guitar Kits SG Special Project

    What a cool project, and it's nice to see PGK offering a more Gibson-ish style on their SG's again. Congrats... :cheers:. Good choice on the ebony overlay. I really believe this is a better material for an overlay than the old fiberboard style. On drilling your own bushing holes...: Was there...

    Yard sale find ! NAD

    "The multifilter is essentially a six-band EQ with fixed settings, where you control only how much of the signal through it gets mixed back with the main signal, sort of like a flanger's comb filter with the sweep set to zero. The frequency centers are at 1000Hz, 1370Hz, 1900Hz, 2630Hz, 3630Hz...

    Yard sale find ! NAD

    Seriously... I used to have that amp. Somewhere between the years of '78 and '80... memory is very foggy from those times. I had it for only a short time, maybe a year... memory is very foggy from those times. I think I traded it in to buy the new Fender 75 back then... memory is very foggy from...

    NGD! First SG!

    Congrats on a fantastic Gibson SG... :cheers:. I can honestly vouch for how nice the 50th Anniversary PT SG is. I was fortunate to add one of these to my harem 4 years ago. My original intention was to not make any changes on it, but I just couldn't help myself. It's not fair to use the word...

    Do I need to be worried

    What I meant, if the ebony board is clean and has been properly moisturized. Feel any fret sprouts? Seems like ebony is more sensitive to shrinkage if it's allowed to dry up too much. You would feel fret sprouts on the sides, and maybe the shrinkage might have caused the finish to stretch and...

    Gibson SG Standard 61...To Return or Not To Return?

    Considering everything you have stated, I would return it. I'm very surprised that given Gibson's recent attempt to restore consumer confidence in their products, that they would let any guitar leave the factory in very subpar conditions. zZounds and other online vendors need to step up, too...

    Tele Jr

    Your custom Tele looks great. Congrats on a job well done... :cheers:. I noticed you flipped the control layout. I tried that on my Tele/Esquire kit-build (... from PGK) for awhile. But recently flipped it back to its "normal" layout, because I kept hitting and accidently moving the volume...

    NGD: Les Paul Special TV Yellow

    I didn't know Gibson has a Custom Shop version of their own P90. Interesting... :hmm:. I like the stock P90s of my '11 SG, even though there's a set of Wolfetone P90s on that SG now. Since we're both fans of the Kinman's, is there a future with those in that sweet and new LP of yours?
