Anyone know a good luthier in St. Cloud Minnesota?

05 January 2018 - 06:27 PM

Anyone have a recommendation for a good, reputable luthier in St. Cloud? One who can handle troubleshooting a ground issue and repairing it? Possibly running a new ground wire to the bridge where one may or may not have existed? (I'm told not all Les Pauls have them...)

I sold someone a guitar, they messed it up, but I want to help them out. 


Cheap stocking stuffer accessory for Fender blackface/silverface amps

08 December 2017 - 04:59 PM

If you have a Deluxe Reverb, Twin Reverb, or Super Reverb, vintage fender amp, or other "blackface/silverface" fender like bandmaster etc, but you hate the pedal that controls reverb and vibrato (actually tremolo) and usually set them to one setting and leave them on...this is for you! Carry 1 less pound, Carry 1 less item, avoid damage to your amp in transport, and eliminate that extra cable running up to your pedal board. 

 

The "Always On Plug ™ " is a shunt plug that puts reverb and vibrato/tremolo/speed/intensity controls in the "on state" so you can control them from the front panel. 

It eliminates the need for the footswitch so you don't have it banging around in the back of your amp during transport, whacking a tube or the reverb tank, or poking a plug through the back of your speaker. 

 

Just plug it into the pedal jack, and leave the pedal in a drawer. I usually set my Deluxe Reverb Reissue with the reverb on 2.5, the speed on about 2 or 3 and the intensity on about 4 for almost everything and it gives a fat rich clean tone with depth. There are 2 or 3 songs I play were I adjust those settings for more reverb or tremolo fromt he front controls. I never switch them on and off during a song so...this works great for me. 

 

Search ebay, reverb or Craigslist on "Always On Plug Fender Reverb" to buy...$10...cheap stocking stuffer. :)

These are available in 1/4" plugs for the reissue amps, and RCA plugs for the vintage amps. The RCA plugs are a few bucks cheaper. 

 

cheers.

 

 

 


The best tip ever for learning chords and changing chords

26 June 2017 - 03:05 PM

I haven't posted here in a long time but I'm Baaaaaaaaa-aaaaacccck!

 

Check out this YouTube video from Jody Fisher. (He is awesome...)

 

This is the best method I've ever seen for speeding up learning chords and changing chords. It might be a little tough on your fingers when you're first starting to learn chords but I promise you, it really works great by comparison to just forming the chord over and over. So much faster, so much better.

Good luck!

 

PS - I'm posting this in all the "chord" sessions in LMG so people at various stages of the course and trying to learn new chords will see it.(Sessions, 5,6,7,8,12,20)
