    Trading allows me to reduce my inventory and sometimes trade up. Both of which happened. :thumbsup:

    I dig that big jazzy Gretsch, always lusted after a big fat archtop like that. I want to play jazz but the reality is I don't know how to play over chord changes, sometimes I can figure it out by ear but mostly will get lost quick. I've felt a guitar like that would sit in the corner mocking my inability to play it properly.

    They "look" fine but the switches won't budge. Was worried I got them too hot and the internals are all locked up.

    I don't recall them having this problem before I soldered...

    The solder should melt and give you a good joint within a couple seconds. If it doesn't, you risk cooking your switches. Possible reasons you're cooking your switches:
    • The iron is too hot
    • You need to clean and re-tin the tip of your iron
    • You need to use flux to clean the joint before soldering
    It could also be that the switch+wires are hitting the bottom of the control cavity and pushing the switch upward. Depending on the switch, this can make the internals lock up. It's easy to test: if you take the pickguard or rear cover off and it's still frozen, this isn't your problem.

    I use a hot iron but it's in contact for so little time it's ok. Probably leaving it in contact too long.

  20. What are you guys using as inexpensive upgraded tuners for these basses? I've never had a guitar tuning peg just die, but today I killed one of these. The post snapped off somewhere inside. Not from abuse, just tuning up...
