"thanks Dave. Jenson makes a very efficient low watt 10 inch. the 5watt amp makes it sing. 9 volt. here's part of the neck. the side marker that doesn't match the top is supposed to be the blues scale:"

Pickups and pots.

Posted on March 26, 2019 at 10:31am 27 Comments

Read an in depth interview with a guitar tech, he worked with Emmylou Harris for 11 years, as wells many other renowned musicians. His take on boutique and high end pickups is the designer winds/designs the pickup with the intention that the best sound is at full output, as connected directly to the jack. He therefore had the guitars at full volume, and would use the mixing board to cool them down if necessary. Makes sense, the pickup designer has a specific sound in mind, and wound…

Hi Daniel, to get a ticket for the Swampy contact Steve Miles at frogking1958@yahoo.com. He has paypal attached to his email.

As far as sawmill lumber, the person who cuts my logs has a set up similar to what is in your picture just larger but can still be trailered. to keep from warping you need to put stacker strips in between each layer you stack. the strips don't need to be large just enough to allow air circulation. Then lay something substantial on top , blocks or whatever you have laying around. I usually allow mine to dry for 2 years and haven't had any trouble. I currently have oak, ash, locust and sasafrass dry and ready to go. Probably close to 400 bdft of lumber, cheapest way to get material to build with.
