Hi Greg...Anything is good....A different(good, unique or great look) way of part of a build or show all the different types of amps you build and explain the speaker/battery/wiring requirement.  Let me know your subject and I will get the info out....Thanks....Will

Hi Greg,
    I saw that you were offering you help at a meeting!  If I remember correctly you build gits and amps.  Can you put together a half hour presentation?
    We have setup a meeting for Sunday,  1 to 4pm, February 16th at the Strum Shop.  I will not announce the date until I have setup the program, so let me know asap.

Hi Greg

Great stuff on your page

You got it happening!

Hey Greg, yes the VCC is your 9v + side, use either of the 2 grounds for the 9V - or input - sides. I use a stereo plug so it acts as an on off switch, so I just use 1 ground lug for both 9v & input.

Hi Greg - thanks for your comment - they seem to work quite well and I thought it was better to drill a small hole by the eye rather than have the strings pass through the headstock,  Best, Phil.
