    Schematics for kustom Lead Amp top?

    Looks like I got the right plans, for some "pc506..." board. Now it's about + 0.7 V DC out, for the speaker out port. He says that value is ok, But it varies, and he can't figure out why. When he cools the two "Differential steps", (called Q1 and Q2: "2122" or 4249?) one gets to plus + 2-3V, the other to minus - 2-3V. It's some kind of balancing coupling. The repairman cant figure out if it should be a difference on the two steps like that. , if he should keep looking for a fault or stop there, since what should happen in the amp, with it's values etc, is not clear. If someone knew? He gets a 25V + DC at times It's a -71-78 make amplifier module
  2. Looking for Schematics for a Kustom Lead III guitar Amplifier top The out signal to the Speaker doesn't work. Line seems ok. The repair shop cant find any schematics from the maker, and they cant do anything more until they have schematics. Voltage varies from 0.5 to 20 V without explanation. Have looked on the net but found no Kustom schematics specifically for the III Lead top. Anyone got them as PDF or knows where to find them?

    Custom Fb Maker Of Aria U100?

    Where can you see his work?
  5. Have any of you got a U100 fretboard (Ebony, 10" r?) made by a custom fretboard maker /inlay artist? Or experience of a competent custom FB/inlay maker that could do complex inlays good. Looking for someone pro that can make a FB with the elliptic pearloid inlays proper as of the U100. http://medias.audiofanzine.com/images/normal/aria-guitars-u100-585830.jpg

    Protruding Frets

    New Topic: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=45576 It's Very Old so humidity won't affect it either way on this issue. Maybe I'll try the superglue.
  8. I have some frets on a old Brand-name Classic neck that is protruding, bending up perpendicular to the fretboard surface, on the sides of the FB - flat in middle. You can press the fret-ends down by hand, about 0.5-1 mm, but as soon as you let go they rise again. The guitar is really Old, so humidity has no short time passing affect on this, either way. More like Metal fatigue, plastically getting back to it's original shape. I was thinking of applying some wood glue at the sides while pressing down for setting, but then you have to make sure that the (new) Fretboard-flat position of the fret won't be out of line and causing fretbuzz and whatever. Maybe superglue, as suggested. Has Anyone done it?

    Anyone know from what show this was recorded? Yngwie Malmsteen Plays Flight of the Bumblebee http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70APtQuc31E Seems noone knows on Youtube. Is the whole concert recording available somewhere? (right forum?)

    Protruding Frets

    Get som Flat Fret press pieces [stewmac] and press where obvious. Place it over 3-4 frets and where rocking, press. More accurate work than that needs sufficient equipment... Or do you mean on the SIDE of the FB?
  13. Building from pictures, ain't got no access to a Cirrus.
  14. I'm getting it as close as possible to the Cirrus. Peavey won't reveal the extent or measurements of the "Graphite reinforcements". http://www.peavey.com/products/browse.cfm/...206%20Maple.cfm It's Walnut - WN/maple/walnut/maple/WN - neck. See Images on any 6-str Cirrus. 5: 6:
  15. How much Carbon rods, Graphite rods, should be needed for this neck? 2 Gr rods, 1 on each side of the 2-way TR x what length? and x what av. area, circular, rectangular or square?
