Re: Gibson Humbucker install question

The outside braided wire is the ground. The inside wire is the hot.

That's the way my Seymour Duncan is made.

If you had 4 wires you would be able to do coil splitting.

Music Den

So... I am planning on moving my "music Room" from an empty upstairs bedroom to my living room downstairs. I am calling it a music den in order to make the wife happy. It would have a nice seating area with TV/Stereo, etc. along with an area for setting up the instruments. Guitar/bass/keys/ small dr...

Led Zeppelin / Spirit Trial

Has anyone been following the trial? Mods, please forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. This could really go just as well in Guitar Theory. Personally I don't see the similarity. I understand what the plaintiff is trying to assert. But I don't feel it meets the definition of "ripped off". They s...

Re: Faded Paint and Chips on 1950's Fender Telecaster, and Super Dry Cracked Guitars help and estimate?

I would take them to a qualified luthier to at least get an estimate to stabilize and repair them. Like the previous poster said I would not touch the finish on them. You want to preserve them.

Re: Large crack in the back of the head

I would defiantly have a qualified luthier look at it. I'm sure it could be repaired.

Cool looking guitar BTW.

Re: Cracks on neck

That looks like more than just a finish crack to me. Even it is only cosmetic I think I would return it if that is possible.

Re: Buzz/Hum/Feedback

I was having a lot of buzzing issues with the noise gate. I finally got rid of the noise gate and One Spot and hooked everything into a Voodoo Labs power supply. Its awesome now.

Most have been sold but we kept about 6 guitars a banjo and some odds and ends. 3 of the guitars are...

Re: Any suggestions for really cheap mics?

+1 on the SM58. The info on the 58 says its a vocal mic. Info says the SM57 is an instrument mike. I have seen the 58 used for amps as well. Probably a good choice.

Re: Strat copy pickup replacement

Is everything grounded? I know my strat has 2 grounds. One to the body and one to the tremolo.

Does the humming stop when you touch the strings?

Re: Noob Fretting Question

When I started playing electric I found it was necessary for me to play more on the flats of my fingers in lieu of the tips. I can actually mute the string above and below the fretted string. It really helps with electric.

Re: Guitar (maybe) identification

Here is another conundrum. Hmmm...a guitar trying to be a cello?
