  1. micguy replied to the thread When is a fuzz not a fuzz?.

  2. micguy replied to the thread what pickups for the most accurate, true to form 60s p bass sound..

    RIAA equalization, properly done, doesn't color the sound. A pre-emphasis is applied when the record is cut, and the exact opposite is...

  4. micguy replied to the thread 10,000 hours rule.

    There is the matter of the (alleged) deal he made, which may or may not be true.

  5. micguy replied to the thread Best epoxy for avoiding "creep" that can be bought in small quantities?.

    Decent epoxy (mixed well) doesn't creep. The stuff I have used is from Golfworks - shafting epoxy - forget whether it's 8 or 24 hour...

  6. micguy replied to the thread Instrument to Line Level.

    The pedals on my pedalboards are generally top notch gear - I generally follow the axiom of buying the good stuff first being cheaper...

  7. micguy replied to the thread what pickups for the most accurate, true to form 60s p bass sound..

    The consensus of opinions would agree on mellower, but not lower output - 70's pickups generally had fewer turns; they would be lower in...

  8. micguy replied to the thread Can fretboard radius be changed on a 7 1/4" radius Musicmaster bass.

    Taking thickness off a neck makes it less stiff - you may need to stick to thinner guage strings if you do that, to avoid stability...

  9. micguy replied to the thread Multimeter reads "1" ("OL") while measuring very low current draw.

  10. micguy replied to the thread Multimeter reads "1" ("OL") while measuring very low current draw.

    My guess is you aren't hooking up the meter right. If you're hooking up a current meter across the applied voltage (AC or DC), then...

  11. micguy replied to the thread My perspective on shortscales. (long}.

    My perspective on log scales (short): I have ginormous hands. Long scales work for me. If they don't work for you, buy something that...

  12. micguy replied to the thread Little Things Add Up.

  13. micguy replied to the thread You can only have 36 basses - which do you choose?.

    The toughest part of 36 basses would be trying to tell my wife that she had to move her stuff out of her closet. That might not go well....

  14. micguy replied to the thread My perspective on shortscales. (long}.

    I agree with most of your assessment, but floppy string tension is a scale/tuning and string issue, not at all related to how well made...
