    Hardtail - cool
    That style bridge on a Strat - the bastard child from a cocaine and tequila fueled Tijuana binge weekend.

    Not that I have strong opinions on that or anything ;)

    The problem I have with these though are that they are still taking away, rather then adding. That's one of the reasons why I don't use tone controls. I have them connected, as just being in the...

    The Treble bleed mod on the volume pot keeps the highs, while rolling off volume. So instead of sounding like you have put a blanket on your speakers, it just sounds like you are turning things...

    I find a .022 gives a much more vintage sound (for lack of a better word). The .047 is more of a modern sound.

    Electronics are a bitch. You know the one I had the most problem with? One with one volume control and that's it. It was noisy and had half the output it should, but measure just fine resistance...

    I wouldn't say overdriven tone exactly. They are known for their headroom and cranking one isn't the same as cranking a Plexi or even a Fender. It just doesn't have that full ballsy sound until you...

    I owned a Hi-Watt for a long time. Fabulous quality. Yes, they really need to be let loose to get that tone. It just didn't have the definition that is so indicative of the Marshall sound. No...

    Those claims are contradictory aren't they? Less wood and chambering are not going to give you more sustain or a fatter tone...I don't get how they think it could. It would be the opposite. Just...

    It would be a very subtle difference. Your bridge and neck are still screwed into the main body and that is what is going to affect sustain and definition.

    SD makes good stuff. The only one I didn't like was an old Hot Rails I had in the bridge of a Strat. But I heard many years later if you wired it in parallel it sounded a gazillion times better.
