    This thing likes to change color on me. If I get pictures that show a drasticly new color, I will post them here. Mainly so I have them all in one spot instead of always hunting them down as I need them.

  2. 30 watt named...Orpheus

    Didn't make any entries until I resolved that last post, which was to start designing and building the next step, the 30 watt.
    I built one, sent it to a famous pickup maker, and we both decided we didn't like the result.
    He owns a 7 watt and loves it.
    So I got it back and stripped out to start over.
    In the meantime I was able to do a similar build into a Fender 75 chassis, with channel switching via a couple of XLR cables.
    Passive, but quiet.
    The gain channel ...

    Here is the bridge from the Avenger. It is a JT-580 Takeuchi.
    It is a full double locking bridge, stamped Charvel, that was used on some Charvette guitars from the same time.
    Most Avenger guitars have the single locking JT-570 bridge.
    The bridge is similar to the JT-580 used on some Jackson guitars, but made in Japan. Everything is original and seems to work well. I will make sure all the parts work correctly and put it back together. ...

    This is a pic of the untaped, unpainted neck pocket area.

    Next step is to put the neck back on and start to put the whole thing back together.

  5. Getting fat, switching to Bud Light doesn't work....

    Alright, This is a bunch of crap!! I'm getting less OT at work which really is a good thing. I have more time at home with the nice lady that lets me touch her, more time in the home studio so maybe I can finally play some of the thousands of $$ in gear I have instead of just collecting, and just generally more fun times. Except... I'm drinking beer more often and put on about 15# in the last 6 months or so... Then, 6 weeks ago, knee surgery.. Month off work (another good thing as it was paid) and ...
