    A set of Guitar Madness 59ers in my sons Goldtop AL-3100M. Picked this up on eBay minus any pickups.
    Video link shows our instructor taking it for a spin. He likey! The Roland amp on the other hand leaves a bit to be desired.

    Thanks!

    I've had that mobile number since 2004. I do that with all that I build or repair. It is me standing behind my work.

    Funny, I had a stranger call me one day from I believe Reading, really excited that he found a really qualified amp tech within driving distance. At first I thought he had one of the thousands of repairs I did in PA up until 2014. Then he described the amp and it was Krank amp head I had recently restored for a friend in St. Louis, who sold it on Reverb. The Reading guy was really disappointed, as he had about 7 amps he wanted to bring me and valued the way I had set up the Krank. He gave me his number and made me promise that if I ever moved back to PA, to call him.

    BTW: That Tele BG is killer. Retains the twang, but gets a nudge closer to LP PAF territory.

    Totally Hall of Fame material!
    A pedal with a five position switch would be cool too, or a trem handle with which you could use your foot to modulate. Love the concept!

    on my bench tonight, Prince Oberyn

    My take on a LA-2A compressor for guitar. This is for my nephew. Art work is by my wife who is getting good at acrylic pours!

    I am humbled, as you are the pedal graphics master. Your themes and graphics are the best!

    put an old mim 6-saddle bridge i had laying around in my firefly ffth. i was dumb though and didn't check the relative saddle location and the mim intonation screws were far too short. fortunately i had some screws hanging around that worked in a pinch, they just don't all match.

    I'm going to go way out on a limb here and guess that it's some sort of guitar effects pedal...:)

    I just finished this project for a customer. It's a 1952 Gibson CF-100. It originally belonged to my customer's grandfather, but was sold and out of the family for a number of years. My customer was able to track it down and buy it back, but someone along the way had done some terrible things to it. I tried to keep it as original as possible... neck reset, crack repair, brace repair, new bridge/saddle/nut, reproduction tuners, and lots of TLC to the finish.

    Not on my workbench yet, but later today I'm gonna be doing a full set up on a buddy's new bc rich beast, and sometime in the near future I'll be doing a setup on his custom 7-string baritone agile hornet.

    Well Thank You!

    Building the pedals is a ton easier than thinking up the themes and graphics, that's for sure.

    He did use a early germanium fuzz and then a silicon fuzz before 76'. Muff was after that, according to gilmorish.com. Muff has clipping diodes where fuzz faces don't. I think i have a few pcb boards for a Colorsound Supa tonebender, which was a muff clone and not a tonebender at all, it has 2 diodes instead of 4, guy on reverb sells the boards for $6.

    Painting of the Peavey body is underway. This is the Montana Gold "Shock White" - a very pure white with no hint of yellow, which is exactly what I wanted. So far it's coming out a little more semi-gloss than the satin I had thought it would be, but that's OK. My only problem has been the can spitting a bit, which results in drops you have to sand out and repaint. I know that at least part of that is the fault of my own technique.
