    Ahhh, I see now. I did think you meant A4, but missed the context. It's a good question. I wonder if any manufacturers have tried it, and why they landed on A2?

    Just curious, Simon, how much E to...

    It also comes down to the "viewer" (or more specifically, the listener) What makes my ears happy may be very different to someone else's. And as Simon points out, hearing is the ultimate test.

    Just comparing specs, the Tonerider Classic Blues are actually closer to the Texas Specials in regard to output and inductance (Henries or 'H'). It's worth noting that the City Limits bridge pickup...

    TTBOMK all PBG necks are dual action, at least the 6-string electrics. However I have no direct experience with their basses.

    I'm sure one of the many bass players here will weigh in eventually.

    It's not the worst thing I've seen done to a guitar, but if you're not pleased with it and want to try and make it better, I get that.

    The switch is not wired correctly. You have lugs linked like it was a CRL-type lever switch.
    The internal routing of the "import-style" switch is different.

    I didn't consider the vibrato aspect. I guess because I'm not a big user.
    I have two strats set up for vibrato and the rest are blocked or hardtail.

    Remind me which kit you're going to be finishing. If it is the TL-1TB or Iceman as in your signature, I'm pretty sure those are both basswood bodies and typically don't require grain filling.

    Good to know Simon.
    It's one of those things I've meant to do some testing on, but haven't. My concern has been residual oils. Obviously must not be an issue given enough time. Thanks!

    Thanks for that info Simon.
    I don't know why, but I always just assumed active = hot. Probably because a lot of the metal guys use them (???). I see now that's not necessarily the case.

    It will work (sort of). Shellite (aka naptha in US) evaporates really quickly so you don't get a lot of "viewing time".
    Metho also has a quick evap time, but slower than shellite.
