Comment by Vinylhed yesterday

This isn't a strictly CBG post...But my old college friend is touring the UK and I thought her rootsy blues might appeal to some of you folks here.

So, check out Hat Fitz and Cara's website for dates and check out this video.

If anyone's been following my ramblings about a buzzing noise coming from the amp, how's this for stupid!

After my last post, I took the guitar & amp out of the garage, where I'd been working on it, & plugged it in in the room I laughingly call my office, where I usually practice, as it's got a PC & I can play, or try to, along to youtube tutorials.

The xxxxxxx thing started buzzing again. Loudly.

My wife overheard my swearing, & said, "Are you sure it's not the computer causing the interference?".

"Nah", said I, but decamped to the conservatory anyway, guitar, amp, and all.

Guess what? No more buzzing.

Looks like I've had the thing apart twice, & replaced a lot of the stuff inside, for no good reason.

There must be a moral to this story!

What a dummy!

Looking for simple things as I am making the guitar on the dining table or the kitchen, i have some small so unholy covers I got from eBay along with box corners, also from eBay. I really rely on the internet as I don't have much in the way of DIY shops ( homebase ) so really just looking for any ideas, thanks for the sink drainer idea

They're a good price Boxman. So far I've used corian for nuts and bridges. I contacted a load of suppliers and got free samples from a few of them. It's easy to work and you can get loads of colours.
