Reso cone warning!

Started this discussion. Last reply by RTZGUITARS on Friday. 36 Replies

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…"

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 for the compliment

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?

Thanks for the friend request Bluesheart - gladly accepted - still can't get over your great vocals and playing - keep on keepin on brother and stay well.

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!

Thanks Bluesheart,it turned out well considering I picked up the wrong can and sprayed it gloss black instead of clear lacquer
