Re: DiMarzio and double creams

Dimarzio has also protected the acronym PAF for their own use. Larry is VERY good at getting the rights to use things he didn't come up with." "The Golden Age Parsons Street Humbuckers actually have double cream bobbins. You would need to remove the Nickel or Gold pickup cover." I take it you can't...

Very nice :D That's not unlike mine. 250k pots are standard for fender-style single coils I think. Not so sure about the cap (shouldn't it list its capacitance?). In fact it does - 473K means 47 x 1000 which equals the value in picofarads: 47000 pf We want micro farads which is the range that all g...

Finally purchased Black Star. It won't sway me away from my worship of tracks like TVC15, Be My Wife and The Secret Life of Arabia but still a good album. Amazing that the guy could still turn out some good music at nearly 70 - he really was a genuinely creative musician. Where are We Now off the se...

How did you go with the little analogue synth?

Had a look at the vids online - looks and sounds pretty decent.

Well, assuming he did not just juxtapose the digits! - I'm just repeating what the current catalog and website claim - the 240 Is the highest numbered Standard Heh, heh - maybe that's what happened! I do remember back in 2009/10 there was talk about the Hibiki HLS models, and people were saying the...

Great stuff and HNGD!

These HLS guitars are on my list if I get a chance to buy a newish guitar.

I think there were higher models though, check out this thread:

RIP Lemmy!

"Eat the rich"

Encountered him once on a TV show I was working on - 9 o'clock in the morning already into a 6 pack, and saying something like, well, get on with it then!

He was on time though, unlike many others.

1982 Tokai LS-100S ON Re-wire

Ok after playing it for a while, I think I'm going to do it and lose the PCB. Definitely got a slightly dodgy ground on the neck pickup, which is no surprise as the pots have been changed out at some point and it wasn't done very well (looks like an underpowered soldering iron was used). I want to p...

+1 hell yes.

Gotta love that shim! :D

I suppose there is the remote possibility that the guitar was re-finished early in its life, but I doubt it.
