    You can measure it at the socket inside the cavity at the live and the ground. Switch to the pickup you want to measure and split it if necessary. Alternatively, you can also do what I do: keep a...

    What I was referring to was the criminalisation of actually buying counterfeit goods in those countries. Here in the UK there's no law to deter someone from buying a fake item, but in France you can...

    The Chinese will never pursue anyone for any counterfeiting that brings in hard currency. If there were any threat to their own economy, their attitude would obviously be very different.

    That was none other than Jan Hammer on keytar, with the then rhythm section from King Crimson - Tony Levin and Bill Bruford. Awesome clip. Thanks for posting it.

    That striped PRS is totally cool....

    According to one poster here a while ago, the pickups haven't changed since they were introduced. He suggested that the engraving on the covers was only a cosmetic difference to identify the pickups....

    You should be able to find Brasso and Silvo, which are pretty much the same thing if you look into it, here in Europe, and they're perfect for the job.

    That's vintage yellow. Santana yellow is exactly the same colour with a natural back. Vintage yellow has a cherry back.

    It is nickel-plated brass. I've worn the nickel off the low E saddle on one and it's definitely brass under there. I bet it would look good with unplated brass saddles and screws.

    Looking good, Rory! It's nice to see that trem in a guitar after all these years.

    That's exactly the way it works when you have a two-volume guitar. All DGTs are the same.

    This is the saddest of news. One of my all-time guitar heroes has gone. I've listened to Paco's music for over 25 years. At a time his solo albums and the albums with McLaughlin and DiMeola were...

    The first Godin guitar he played was an LGXT, which he used to transcribe his playing for his instructional DVD "This is the way I do it".

    He apparently switched to a Freeway SA because it was...

    Is the neck stained? From the grain, it looks like rosewood or possibly cocobolo. Either way, the guitar is a beautiful match to the DG amps.

    Yes, your guitar is still the same guitar they make nowadays in terms of woods, thicknesses etc. They have changed the pickups, the switching, and the inlays since you bought yours, but it's...

    Just to complete the comparison, the first chart shows that the Vintage bass and the Standard bass are pretty much the same pickup. And we already knew that the Dragon bass became the McCarty bass.

    From some of the figures in Bill's chart, it would look a lot like some individual pickups are renamed, covered/uncovered versions of other pickups, sometimes with a change in wiring options thrown...

    I don't imagine there's anything that can be done to fix that at the manufacturer's end without taking away the adjustability. The simple solution is to measure the string height from the pickup on...

    I have an Archtop IV in vintage natural and a Hollowbody II in Antique Natural and I'd have to say that they're very different. Vintage Natural uses a very subtle tone for the burst while Antique...

    The driver had only been to my house once. I know that for a fact. It's apparently a common story. The deal is the driver thinks that the person's never going to be in so doesn't "waste his time"...

    Indeed. Stiffer sides mean that the top and back get a greater share of the string vibrations. And it's extremely unlikely that there are more than two layers in the laminate. Looking inside the...
