    buy a ticket for your guitar and sit it next to you! Nothing's too good for my baby. -Jim

    well, what kind of strat do you have (mexi, us, squire?) and perhaps more importantly, what kind of amp do you play it through? I had a mexi that I thought sounded brittle until I put in vintage noiseless pups. Now it sings so sweet I'd never ...(more)

    MMW, dirty dozen, waffle haus, jazz mandolin... those are my favorites at the moment. Maybe they aren't that obscure, but most of my friends don't know them.

    yeah, the vintage noiseless are cool, and sound real smooth, but if you're gonna change them 1 at a time, this is not the pickup for you. It needs different tone and volume pots than the standard strat pickups (1 meg instead of the usual 500k) ...(more)

    Loser might be a little strong of a word for Jacko. The man has made some good tunes in his day. Whatever you say of him, you can't deny his talent. He is, however, a twisted human being. Of course, this is to be expected from somebody who w...(more)

    you can lie to yourself, and to your friends... but you can't lie to us. We know you're after the women. We all are. :o) Jim

    yeah, yamaha customer service does suck. I couldn't talk to a live person, so I wrote them an email with a question, and I didn't hear from them for 3.5 weeks. By the time I got a phone call from them, I had forgotten why I wanted to talk to t...(more)

    I suggest using the tone pot from your middle pickup for your JB jr. Or, if you actually use your middle pickup enough that you like the tone control for it... pick up a push/pull pot. Jim

    I've never had a new instrument. Well, that's not true, and I've never had any problems. (but it would be nice, just once, to know that my guitar was brand new) Jim

    I'd rather get the blues jr to the pro jr. I think it sounds much nicer, and you can pick one of those up for about 375, if you look around long enough (there's always ebay) I've also seen Hot Rod deluxe's on Ebay going for 375 buy it now. Jim

    On a similar note to the azores statement you made: The city with the largest Polish Population in the world: Warsaw. Nubmer 2: Chicago. Thought that was a cool fact. Jim

    I personally think that you are much better off with a really nice amp and a crappy guitar than vice-versa. The amp does more to create the tone that you hear than the guitar, I think. Although I'm sure there are people who would disagree. Al...(more)
