re: Guitar players: Rio Grande pickups - TheFretShack on 5/22/18 at 6:46 am
I use CTS pots, 500Ks with humbuckers, and Orange Drop capacitors. My favorite values in the case of Gibson HH guitars are a .022 for a shared tone or the neck specific pickup's tone control and a .015 for a bridge specific pickup's tone. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Guitar players: Rio Grande pickups - TheFretShack on 5/21/18 at 1:19 pm
You can't go wrong with their BBQ/Genuine Texas pair for any 24.75 set-neck HH guitar really. They sound great in 335s and LPs and they really do a positive number on all mahogs like SGs and Vs, giving them some extra high end zing. If you have nice pots in your guitar and are working a nice tub...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Guitar Players....Anyone else dealing with a Shoulder problem? - TheFretShack on 4/28/18 at 4:03 pm
I briefly owned a '79 LP Standard some 10'ish years ago that was righteous sounding but weighed nearly 14 pounds according to the local post office scale. To date is is the heaviest solidbody electric I've ever been around. It was so heavy, other guys who owned Norlin-era heavyweight (10 lbs and up)...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Which hit song from the past do you think could appear and be a hit song today? - TheFretShack on 4/14/18 at 8:30 am

re: Do you play or write music? - TheFretShack on 4/12/18 at 8:50 am
I work on guitars nowadays more than playing them, many of you know that. I spend more time test driving other guys guitars than I do griming up my own, but I've been making it a point to find time to play "my" guitars (I'm fortunate to have the nicest collection I've ever had in my life nowadays) p...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Going to Nashville next month - TheFretShack on 4/10/18 at 2:39 pm
And if you find yourself roaming on the strip, duck into Robert's Western World particularly if Don Kelley's house band is playing. I saw them when Johnny Hiland was his hired gun guitar player and I immediately became a fan of Western swing country. They were simply stellar.

re: Going to Nashville next month - TheFretShack on 4/10/18 at 2:36 pm
I played at the Exit In waaay back in my gigging days and I remember they had a big wall where all the bands that played there wrote their name -- and there were some pretty cool names that passed through that venue at some point on the wall. I hear they still get good acts through. Thank you Goo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Guitar hardware question #3... So if I decide to solder?? - TheFretShack on 3/30/18 at 5:36 pm
I like the 60w Weller iron at Lowe's if I was going to recommend a first iron. I don't care if you're using 60 watts or 6000, you can fry stuff if you stay in/on too long, particularly capacitors. Get the business done and get the heat out of there. I use alligator clips as heat sinks/isolators i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Electric guitar hardware upgrade question# 2. - TheFretShack on 3/22/18 at 12:47 pm
If what you like is solderless, great, but don't let solder or solderless decide your pickup/electronics choice. The huge, massive lion's share majority of stuff out there is not available as solderless and/or complete kits. If you "have" to have a solderless system, you're going to paint yourself i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Guitar pickup recs. High end. Not high end. - TheFretShack on 3/16/18 at 10:25 am
My favorite H for an HSS setup is a tried and true bridge position-wound Duncan '59. Custom order it, however, for the four-conductor wiring option so it can be coil tapped. Duncan '59s are typically two-conductor. The 4C option is an extra $10 or $15 and the '59 taps very nicely for a solid single ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Guitar pickup recs. High end. Not high end. - TheFretShack on 3/16/18 at 7:52 am
The new generation of Dimarzio stuff, their collective "Area" series, is really good, particularly if you seek noiseless operation; thicker, creamier strat sounds; the classic strat quacks in position "2" and "4" on the blade; and the ability to push and/or distort without thinning out and icing/bri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
