Not sure where to post this so here goes.I picked up the old 664 as a "throw in" in a trade. Look looking old mic but was told it may not be working. It uses a 4-pin connector that I'm not familiar…Continue

I picked up some 2" copper EMI shielding tape along the way but have enough for several lifetimes. I'm not sure of the mill thickness but each roll is about the size of a large roll of duct tape and…Continue

Thanks for thinking of me Ron. I do have a lot of MIJ laying around. I found a cone and spider that fits and ordered it. Just have to wait for the post. I'll be asking the Nation about details of assembly when i get it. My body has a sound board inside suspended about an inch off the back. I've not seen that before. ?? This will be interesting.

Hi Ron, sorry but i don't have either of the items you're looking for. There's a nice Tel-Star up on ebay right now, but i don't have the badge or bar. Good luck with your search. I just got a reso husk (Regal) that needs a cone. I have a big cone, but not big enough. I may adapt the one i have or start looking. ..... Dave

You should hear Lars (Lars Carlson...) play the piano and sing sometime... I haven't played much the past few years but have been blessed to be able to play with him at times. Very talented and down to earth. I am gonna try to get over there more often- as soon as that Stillwater bridge is open again... Gotta start playing more too and polish up a bit- getting rusty! lol
