    Open Pickup Covers for an old Special Faded

    cerebral gasket just posted pics of his '03 Special Faded's with full pup covers over the stock open coils. I think they look good and is an improvement, aesthetically. What I did a couple months ago on my '02 Special Faded (Moons!), was purchase some "open" covers. I got tired of the gappy...

    How to deal with an uneven High Fret?

    On my 2002 SG Special Faded with the Moons, that I rescued from a Fratboy about 6 months ago, I just discovered the 4th fret is a wee bit high. But only on the outer strings, and each E string has a slight buzz off the 4th fret when I'm holding down the strings at the 3rd fret. A very short...

    I noticed for sale, on the local Craigslist: Yamaha T100C Soldano Combo All Tube Amp For Sale - $700. Didn't know anything about the amp, but what was this Soldano connection?

    My attempt at the Peter Green pickup mod...

    Gahr's Peter Green Sound Thread led me to attempt this mod myself. The guinea pig will be my 2005 LP R9 already equipped with a set of '57 Classics. Instead of altering the LP's current neck pup, I went and bought a used '57 Classic which the seller dated it as being made in 2003. The "cold" dc...

    Another SG Pickguard Replacement?

    The original pickguard to my "71 SG was modified to allow a Kahler system, back in 1980(?). 10 years ago, I found someone who was willing to fill in the routed out cavity left by the removal of that Kahler system, and convert it to a ABR bridge and Stoptail. New pickguard was installed. A...
