Reso cone warning!

I just did my first build using a lightning reso cone from Gitty and at the end found I had a problem with intonation. I laid everything out first as I always do, used a 24" scale. I was very careful…Continue

"Hi, changing the break angle at the bridge and/or nut would have an effect on how the strings feel, soft or tight, and may tie in with what I mentioned on this thread earlier. The fact that finger pressure on strings when setting intonation can…"

CboxGypsy replied to Bluesheart's discussion Reso cone warning!
"Before you move the resonator back check the break angle of the strings and adjust if necessary. I ran into this problem and moved the res back. Still had an issue. I ended using the neck on a different git and had the same problem. I finally…"

This thing

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 7:30am 7 Comments

I guess as far as addictions go this is not a bad one to have. I had surgery yesterday morning and was in the cellar laying out out a rat rod build last night. Now I'm up early and since I'm off work, guess what I'm anxious to get back to??  I don't have much in the way of power tools so not too concerned about being doped up a bit, feeling creative somehow.

I posted you a comment back, not sure where it went though  lol. Nice to meet you too. Looks like you have a creative touch as well. I would like to speak to you about making a pickup out of some strange stuff i have laying around. Im not very electronics savy :O

Thanks I have made a huge error on it or it would have been don by now. But I figured out how to fix it, so I will have it up soon! Do you remember the sizes of the strings? How did you go about picking the strings?

Good Morning Bluesheart

Hey man great music - nice vocals and playing - wanted to say Thank You for your comment on the changes made to Black Brick House due to Uncle John's suggestion - I really appreciate all you guys and your constructive criticism and good eyes 

At 1:34pm on August 6, 2016, Michael Lohrengel said…

Thank you for the comment Bluesheart, if you check the latest photos of the Black Brick House you will see a great improvement as I took Uncle Johns suggestion to heart and made the necessary change to the bridge support and it changed the whole dynamics/looks of the build to a much cleaner and better looking CBG - Glad to hear you are doing ok after the heart attack - just took a look through your pictures - you do some nice work and the songs you do are good as well - have a great day

Thanks Bluesheart. I'm having a ton of fun building these things!

Hey Bh, I don't know about impedance, but they make a pill for that. I have a very basic understanding of electronics, I read this instructable:

http://m.instructables.com/id/Convert-Any-Radio-Into-a-Guitar-Amp/

. It's pretty easy as long as the radio has a volume "pot" and not micro switches. It's such a cool, easy thing to do. And its seemless, you barely notice the jack. It's cool that the radio will still work normally too!
