Like the title says, I'd like to get your comments on the LSR roller nut.
I'm thinking about swapping the bone nut on my Warmoth neck for an LSR, but before I go taking chisels, saws & other weapons of mess creation to it, I'd like to ask you guys using them what do you like and dislike about...
So I've been looking for another LP to back up my blue quilt Tokai for some time. After many months of watching Ebay, Gumtree & the free ads, I finally found one local for a good price. I messaged the seller last week & arranged a deposit to ensure someone else didn't pull the rug from under me...

While Holme is swimming uphill in treacle trying to find his mysterious 7000th post that's gone awol, I've managed to rack up 3000. :woot:
I'm kinda shocked I made it this far, although I guess if a few more threads get hosed I'll be back here again before long.
Anyhow, just wanted to say it's...
Hey folks, I'm looking for a 0.1% accuracy tuner for the bench. I have a Korg Pitchblack on both of my boards for now, great tuners, but I sometimes find I need to sweeten the tuning by ear afterwards. So, tackling the root cause I want a really accurate tuner for doing setups, intonation etc...
I bought a GE-7 recently, mainly becuase it was so stupidly cheap.
I picked it up for £30 / ~$50 via a Facebook gear thread, brand new with receipt, paperwork etc. I tried it out in front of a fairly clean amp as a boost & was horrified to find when I stepped on the pedal it was generating the...
So has anyone else been looking for this ?
One of the few visible with binoculars or just about visible with the naked eye. Apparently it's not going to be back in our region of the solar system for 8000 years, so definitely a once in a lifetime event.
We finally have clear skies here tonight...
So I finally have to cave in & get a pedal board.
I want to keep it as small as possible, partly to avoid the temptation of adding more & more pedals I'll never use, but also to try & keep the weight down.
Essential pedals that need to be there:

Has anyone calculated the input / output impedances of the stages in a Master vol (2203 / 2204) preamp ?
Can anyone tell me how much the 1M master vol pot affects the input impedance of the PI ? or how much it loads the output of the tone stack ?
I'm planning on adding a conventional MV pot to...
Who ? I hear you ask ?

Calling all you Tele owners.....
I have a bitsa Tele that needs new pickups.
Currently it has EMG TC's (ceramic mags) & they just don't seem to have either the brightness for that crisp snappy sound, nor the upper mids to give it the brashness & bark you expect from a Tele.
From what I recall...
I've been slowly collecting parts to build an amp for ages & after a little more internet shopping I figured I had all I needed to get started.
I've never built an amp before, although I've worked on my own & a small number for friends.
It's a real fleabay special comprising;
In a couple of weeks my family & I have a 500+ mile drive, starting out a little north of Boston, across to Niagra, then over the border & on to Toronto to visit my cousins.
Niagra to Toronto is the easy bit, but Boston to Niagra is quite a drive, anyone got suggestions of a couple...

I've been keeping half an eye out for an acoustic for sometime, but a change of direction for one of my projects means it has become more important.
The rhythm guitarist in my classic rock band mentioned a 2nd hand Sigma DR28 in a local shop. Looked it up online & sure enough it looked tidy...
