  1. I like the reflector knobs, one of the things I specifically asked for. Gold Reflector knobs.
  2. Need some closer up shots of those guitars... Like to see the headstock logo's...
  3. I upload using my iphone, when selecting the photos, there is an option to reduce the size. I usually select Medium and it fills the page without exceeding the file size limit.
  4. They were invented about ten years ago by Joe Naylor founder of Naylor amplification and Reverend Guitars. He has them as an upgrade pickup for aftermarket and also stock in many Reverend models. I tried a set once about 8 years ago, but they were the original type that were way too much output for the H150 sound I was looking for. Most recently, I rediscovered their hypervintage lineup which is voiced more like a vintage PAF style pickup. Even at high gain, the note definition is very clear. Rather uncanny how they work, but they sound great. Almost like you are running a stereo setup with a mild breakup/clean amp mixed with high gain. Hard to explain, but I really love this setup. The Nuevo90 is new to me, but when I played it the first time, I was blown away. My favorite blues tune is Stormy Monday and this Nuevo90 sounded amazing. Cleans up when rolled back on volume, and the tone knob is key to mellow it a bit.
  5. I’ll do pickup swaps on some guitars, but not semi-hollows
  6. Heck no. $50 for a pickup swap and a setup. So worth it!
  7. For years, I’ve used a Line6 Sonic Port as my practice tool and interface for my iPad to learn, record, and jam with backing tracks silently. A few months ago I received a new iPad for my birthday. However, the newer model uses a USB-C instead of the lightning interface. Line6 discontinued the Sonic Port and therefore they didn’t make a USB-C cable. So my perfectly functional Line6 Sonic Port is obsolete now. Tried the Fender Mustang Micro amp. It works, sound alright. But I lost the interface with my iPad. Discovered the Apogee Jam+ the other day, bought a demo model from Sweetwater. I’m blown away. Very solid, works with IOS and PC. Sounds great, such a big difference from the Mustang Micro. I’m back to practicing and recording using my old applications. Fantastic for portable, silent recording and jamming!
  8. Love the sound of Railhammers in my Sensei, so I reached out to Railhammer and asked for a recommendation for my 535 based upon my playing style. Recommended a Nuevo90 Neck Pickup (P90) and a Hypervintage Railhammer for the bridge. Wow. They nailed it. Clean/Jazz blues in the neck for a mellow yet clear tone and some serious grit in the bridge that takes high gain to the next level. Wow!
  9. I have a couple amps that come to life when a simple boost circuit kicks in. Even the Electro-Harmonix LBP-1 adds some special sauce to an amp.
  10. What I meant was, all things considered, when you factory in the quality of workmanship in compounded by their reputation, the value of the product goes up. Didn't mean it's not a good value, you're getting what you paid for. Memory serves, Throbak made some killer amps for awhile too.
  11. You can say a lot about Throbak's pricing.... Why are their pickups so much more than Seymour Duncan? Both use original machines and basic components. The pedals Throbak sells are no different. There are dozens of cheaper models out there that do the same thing. It comes down to quality and brand power. Obviously, Throbak believes theirs is best to charge this much.
  12. Not really.... Its not a Heritage/Kalamazoo made guitar. While I've never played a real Timmy, I've been using a clone Timmy for about a year and I love it. (takes time to realize the bass and treble controls function differently)
  13. Think they went on vacation... or maybe it apthay... who knows...🤷‍♂️
  14. Well, I say find a schematic and make your own. Why the Fuch not, right? 😂
