    Seymour Duncan: Who knew?

    We called an audible and went up the expressway on our way out, so didn't go by there but yeah, that's about it, only worse last time we saw it. Last time Mrs and I ate at Woodstown diner was when we went down to Woodstown theater and saw Close Encounters. Stopped at the diner after. Drove up...

    Seymour Duncan: Who knew?

    Oh man, out of business forever, the Richmans in Woodbury Heights has been gone forever too, I don't know about the one over in Sewell/Washington Township. The one on 40 was a good building, but it is just rotting into the ground. I'll have a look at it tomorrow. rct

    Seymour Duncan: Who knew?

    In 1980 when I got married we lived in West Deptford NJ, I worked at PNSY and Mrs at Campbell Soup up in Camden. I had a 72 Telecaster Custom and wanted to change the giant front pickup. The music store I taught lessons at night gave me a phone number to Seymour Duncan, see if they made one...

    California Series Strat

    My #1. 97 California Fat Tele. Dated March 3rd 1997, I bought it Thursday afternoon the 27th, took it out that Friday and Saturday. It's been to almost every gig since, it's been on every recording I've done since, it is my third arm. The neck, the crappy nut and tree, the body and still...

    Fender Esquire CS Time Machine 04 of 04

    CS Time Machine guitar is one that was put in a Time Machine in some year or other and brought out today. That stamp is not something I've ever seen on any CS guitar ever. But that doesn't mean anything. Not enough information without seeing the neck and insides and stuff. One problem, to...

    Truss rod worry

    Well I'm glad someone else said it. I rarely touch trusses, lots of gigging guitars in my life, rarely. My current #1 is 25 years old and has had the truss moved three times it's entire life. rct

    Truss rod worry

    No thinking. Relief is a measurement, it is by design a number you use to achieve a properly functioning neck. Before you buy a dehumidifier, buy a capo and some feeler gauges, set the relief properly and above all, measure it each time you change strings and you will more than likely find it...

    Vicarious N.A.D. (rare 70s amp).

    Oh I don't know the exact same amp or not. I do remember two places that had examples of the CMI rack looking thingys like that. Clanky. Super Mids, that's what I remember. Heavy. I think they were expensive too. I could be remembering a different amp, different take on the same idea, but...
