"There are some "hot" humbuckers (15K ohms) on ebay. They are in a single coil size and would work well for this. You may have to thin the box in the inside (just a bit) and keep the strings fairly close to the box top, but it definitely is…"

"This is sooo interesting.  Always hate cutting through a pretty top and also getting the danged hole just exactly right!  Def trying this on future builds.  "Old Goat" aka Alan Dillard"

Tom T replied to Brett's discussion Finding scale length from fret spacing
"I think Richard hit things on the head. If the nut to 12th is 11.7/8" then the scale would be 23 3/4" for that scale length, the first fret would be 33.86 mm from the nut (call it 34 mm). A careful re-check and you may find that the actual…"

Tom T replied to Brett's discussion Finding scale length from fret spacing
"Forget about the first fret distance for a moment. Instead, carefully measure from the edge of the nut to the 12th fret. Twice that measurement is your scale length (where the bridge should go). If your 30 Cm measurement is correct, that translates…"

Simple Audio Mixer for Your Amp...

One input is my guitar and the other is for an auxiliary device.…See More

Tom T replied to Roland Wood's discussion Headstock angle, help?
"I've done a lot of scarf joints for 3, 4 and 6 stringers. Never had one fail. It is not a difficult task if you keep a couple of things in mind. 1. Make sure the two mating surfaces are well matched. 2. Apply the glue (TiteBond) to both…"
