"sound advice.... unless you use a huge capacitor all should be good. you are basically making a first order low pass filter by bridging the speaker with a cap or a high pass filter putting it inline with the positive speaker lead. dont use…"

"Depends on what you want to do. In series a cap filters out the low end, and a smaller cap filters more than a big cap. in parallel a cap filters out the high end and a bigger cap filters out more than a smaller cap. caps in parallel make for a…"

"Wow, that's an old video, if that's what he was looking for, that's typical wiring of most tone pots and definitely helps with some issues associated with piezo or mag pickups, but not exactly what I was talking about, similar…"

"Are you building a Cab? Passive crossover? Unless it's has a polarity on the capacitor it's basically wired in line with the neg or pos on a speaker. I usually use the pos. Sorry, don't know about the video. But a high or low passive…"

Kigar replied to Mark's discussion fret boards
"If it is a 3 string and both woods are hardwood, 3/4" is plenty thick in total.  Built and seen plenty of 3 stringers in oak or maple with no fretboard and no issues.  Poplar and other soft wood is another story.  Whether it is…"

Tom T replied to Mark's discussion fret boards
"One inch is "thick" for a neck at the nut end, but not down at the box end. Without a truss rod, the additional beef at the nut end may be warranted (or not depending on the string selection). Most players/builders keep it simple and just…"

Paul Craig replied to Mark's discussion fret boards
"It's the way it's usually done. A 6 string guitar is close to 1" after putting it together, but then the backside is carved and the fretboard gets a radius. The first fret area will usually be rounded and the higher end will usually…"

"There are lots of types...  Gitty sells metal clips for inside.   I have 3d printed a bunch, too...   For boxes that are not easy to open, these are awesome: You can find them on ebay cheap... if you don't mind waiting.."
