    4 coil wiring

    They have three product lines:A 3-way Toggle, that has 6-positionsA 3-way Blade, that has 6-positionsA 5-way Blade, that has 10-positionsThat said, the 5-way blade doesn't have the ability to set all the positions uniquely. Maybe with some creative use of the lugs for the 3H option, you might...

    What's your string gauge?

    I'm also in this camp. I'll pick a "key" string, and then pick the gauge that results in the next higher-pitched string to be barely looser, and the next lower-pitched string slightly tighter. Usually that will be setting the tension of the highest string around 16-18 lbs tension. If I'm...

    Some guitars are too funny not to post

    I'm all for "Classical Spaced" strings (51-48mm nut width for a 6-string), but at 55mm (≈2-3/16"), that's a bit wide, even form me. Also, they really didn't need to spread-out the bridge spacing. If they had only dropped down to 7-strings and kept the bridge spacing the same, I'd have some interest.

    Got the link? I just searched for "8 string conversion) and only got MandoCello relevant stuff. I also tried "atomic music" but got bubkiss.

    You'd likely have to use something like the tuners from a Portuguese Guitar (linear-pull 12-string Mandolin-ish).

    Modlers: Cab Sim Before Effects?

    Since I've been using my OSS MOD Dwarf Clone, I've been looking at a lot more virtual pedalboards, etc. I'm seeing a lot of Amp sims that have a built-in Cab Sim, and other virtual pedalboards where the cab sim is immediately after the amp. This puts effects (chorus, reverb, etc.) after the...

    When does tinnitus stop being cool and start being sad?

    When it no longer matches the 1st string, 24th fret E and you actually have to buy a tuner?

    Lister: Oh no, man, dismantle him, you don't know what the little bleeder's like. Kryten: Well I read on the documentation Sir. He's simply a talking alarm clock that provides his owner with early morning toast and light conversation. Lister: Not this one, this one's mental. Kryten [puzzled]...

    T.V. shows you've been watching

    Finished "The Expanse". Is there a Season 7 planned? The "Resurrection Dogs" arc seems to have been left hanging. Found out that Crackle has Red Dwarf (all 12 seasons & the movie). My DVD set stopped at six. Other than the movie, I thought that's all there was.

    Guitar Monkey tuners

    I like the fact that if you order more than a set of 6, then tuners 7-10 automatically come with the string holes that are larger (0.90in/2.3mm).

    Looking for budget nut files.

    The two caveats I'd add is:After you start the notches, rotate the trianglular file so the edge closest to the tip is vertical. This allows you to make a more aggressive cut, when pulling. You can then push (or pull from the tip) for less aggressive cut and sneak-up on the correct...

    Anyone ever make their own baseplates out of Titanium?

    Yeah, well, I'm not from here, man. Like, I'm from Pittsburgh, man. I don't know too many local dudes.

    Eddy Currents? Oh, yeah...he's with Motown, ain't he? Yeah, I played with that dude, too, man. He's a good singer, man.
