    Finishing has always been my nemesis...and that remains true. The perfect finish would be fast, easy, non-toxic, and applicable without spray equipment. This does not exist--or perhaps I am too good...

    ES-Jazz bass hybrid build

    Some will be aware that I began this build over a long time ago...about a year and a half, I think.

    If you use the CTS or Bourns pots you'll need to enlarge the holes, and you will probably need different knobs because the splines are a bit different. If you don't want to enlarge the holes and/or...

  6. TNT Custom Guitars / Dragonfire Strat Pickguards

    This may be of fairly narrow interest, but for those whose interest this meets, I think it's a good resource. They offer a fairly standard array of pickguards for most common Fender-type guitars, but...

    I noticed that a lot of the Gibsons with HB pickups use 500K audio tone pots, but use 500K or 300K linear volume pots.

    The linear part, I think I get, since, if I understand correctly (which I...

    TeleStrat dubious record attempt

    While putting off finishing my Fender-neck-on-Gibson-body bass project, I have been acquiring parts to build a hard tail Strat-ish guitar. I began so long ago that I can't actually remember when it...

    I got #6 and #4 screws, and as you predicted, the #4's worked fine. I did not need to...

    If it were me, I'd make the washers and fit them in the holes before trying anything else. The result will tell you if you need to do something more. I'd also try to do as little as possible to the...

    Yes, sort of, but that may not be the most important thing if you are changing them out. The shafts are pretty much the same size on most guitar sized pots...around 6 mm. My micrometer says that...

    OK, so try the #4-32 first. If too small #6-32.
