I've been having trouble with holding my pick between my thumb and index finger lately. They'll move around on me and sometimes they'll fall to the ground or inside the guitar.Guess it's due to nerve…Continue
"Wayfinder offered an idea and a suggested way to accomplish it.
Nothing wrong with that.
Are there other ways to do it? Yes
The piece of metal that Wayfinder suggested was cheaper than the piece I used and I'm going to look for that piece in…"
"When I built my Gas Can guitar and wanted to cut the channels for the flat bar in the neck and through piece, my circular saw gave up the ghost. I had to use a 3/16" Forstner Bit in my drill to hog out the material because I didn't have a…"
"There's several ways to do this.
You could wire the piezo in the #1 position, #2 for piezo and bridge HB, #3 for bridge HB, #4 for bridge and neck HB's and #5 for neck HB.
Wire the piezo in the middle #3 position to have piezo only or…"
"Don't need the volume and tone if you don't mind adjusting the amp all the time.
This is why people like having those controls. You set the guitar's volume and tone pots at 7, then set your amp controls for the right sound/sweet spot.…"
"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? ;)

"I don't see the point in doing a zero fret myself. Even if you use a zero fret, you still have to make string guides to keep the strings from wandering/moving around. I think a nut looks better than having a zero fret and several screws to keep…"
"I'm in the middle of re-purposing a 1957 Motorola HIFI Turntable's tube amp innards into a guitar and bass amp. A project that will take some time. I got this thing in a yard sale for 20 bucks.
The turntable (didn't work) came with a…"

"Stretcher idea is a success!!!! I did a second sheet. Cut this one down by 1/4 inch on a long and short side. This gave plenty of room. The Arches 140 lb cold press paper was soaked for 10 minutes. Placed on the stretcher and allowed to dry. I then…"
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?
