  1. Thanks for that mattia! It looks to be a very inclusive list and I for one appreciate the time and effort you put into it. This deserves to be pinned so it will be.
  2. Did Tony J Malmsteen's pics load for anyone???? I reloaded the page 5 times and never saw a pic in his post
  3. I suck!! I couldn't decide so I finally just hit "null vote" and voted for all/none of them Too many good choices to pick from this time but it was down to Stew and Maiden in the end. I love me an old Chris Craft (and I miss mine) and that top on Maiden's looks like you can jump right into it and take a swim.
  4. OMG......he's still at it. I cruised over to the Donna's forum and found the thread. Welcome back Matt (Lex).
  5. Hey, your first post and you probably already ticked off half the people here!! What a great start.......... BTW where is YOUR guitar????
  6. Wow....another tough month Ragas and Matt...you have a great knack for design and I'm sure you are both going to go somewhere with that. toddler68...holy crap man, that carve is sweet!! The longer I looked at it the more detail I saw and that finish is perfect. Great work!! rhoads...great original style and touch to a classic shape. I would have never thought headless when I thought tele. My opinions for what they're worth. Oh, and I voted for.........
  7. Oh, man.....this gets tougher every month!! I voted for them all....well, I would if I could.
  8. bond163.....please use the "Edit" button and add to your post so you're not posting 3 times in a row. Thanks!
  9. I guess that depends on your income and what you consider expensive. Lovekraft has a GREAT deal of experience in this area and his advice on this topic is well respected on the forum here.
  10. If you take the back cover off you'll see there is a little circuit board inside.....that is an active pre-amp as cold said. You can buy preamps online and put them in your custom or home-built. Do a Google search for "bass preamp" or "active bass eq" and you should find plenty of sources and drawings.
  11. They are resistors. That's the way they are typically drawn in electrical schematics. I don't know where the rectangle thing came from but in the 25 years I've been reading schematics the "squiggle" is the standard way to draw them.
  12. I did three guitars using metal flake in cans (black, blue and purple) and had no problems. You have to keep the can shook up so the flake doesn't drop to the bottom, move wuick so you don't get spots with flake and spots without and clear the nozzle often by turning the can upside down and spraying it until it's clear. i kept two nozzles handy. After spraying for 2 minutes or so with one it would start to sputter so I pulled it, dropped it in a shot glass full of thinner and sprayed with a fresh nozzle. I repeated this until the guitar was done. When you are done with the metal flake DO NOT TOUCH the finish even after it is dry!!! You will knock the flake off and have spots. Cover the guitar with a clear finish that is compatible with the metal flake paint. I used nitro since my flake was solvent based. Here's a link: Purple P Bass Not a great pic but it shows it can be done with patience......
  13. OMG!! This is the hardest month yet! I looked at them about 5 times and mulled over it for hours before I could even TRY to vote. This is by far the best group of instruments I've seen on GOTM at one time. The double got my vote. I usually go for the bass but I couldn't this time even though it is more than deserving. I feel bad for having to pick just one....how about a selection for "All of the Above" BTW....explain the name "Nanda Devi"......
  14. As always that was not easy.....props to all. Nice looking axes this month!
  15. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THAT bass Rocks!!! Great work by all!!!!! I am a bass player so the bass (almost) always gets my vote.
  16. They are all EXCELLENT so I am not telling which one I voted for...Great work by all of you!!
  17. Yowser! What a tough choice...One not to be taken "lightly" (if ya know what I mean). Excellent job done by all and it sure is NICE to see some basses in here..... Rythm gets the booty movin' and if the booty ain't movin' no one will stay to listen.......
  18. Good Lord!!! That was a tough choice!! The runoffs were even tougher because they were all so dang nice!! My vote went to.......................
  19. BANG! BANG! BANG!!!! (sound of head hitting keyboard repeatedly) How is a guy supposed to vote when they're all a 10+?? There is some awesome work out there this month....I'm glad I stayed out of it!
  20. Congrats JFC!!! Thanks to those that voted for me too!
  21. Sorry again Lex! You got my vote last month!!
  22. Thanks for the nice comments. I dropped the Southern Pearl off at the store today and put a price tag on her.... I may be going back to pick her up tomorrow and put her in my music room for good now......I should have listened to my wife!
