"Yes, it's a good idea to ground the strings. You should have a "ground loop"  meaning all the pots, strings and jack should have a ground link."

"Good to hear that you finally got the order filled. Sad that it took that long and that now the parts are no longer needed. Sure you don't need them for a future build? ;) Did you get a reason for the delay?"

Paul - I definitely want to follow your progress on this new amp circuit you're building.  May be interested in one down the road, but now I've got too many projects going on.  Most are NOT amps, but I've got the guts for a couple of those as well.  Keep me & the nation posted!

Thanks for the info buddy. That's good to know, I'm still new to this building thing. Just learn as I go. It's been fun!!!  I made a banjo neck out of popular, it's about 1 1/2 thick it's ok so far. I do like the red oak and maple. I wonder if red bud would be ok?

At 9:15pm on June 27, 2016, Rooster Reaves said…

That's what this neck is. I made a poplar neck for another build I did. It came out nice.

Hi Paul; thanks for the update. Sorry for the delay in my reply. Did it work out with the speaker? It seemed to be quite a range of caps to try!
