got this brazilian strat neck a couple of years ago. it has refinished before. unfortunately, it’s urethan finish on it.  it still ages well though.

trussrod nut and the decal have replaced at 90’s by the owner before me. and I don’t think this Mechanicland neck came with the decal. the decal on the head is definitely a aftermarket product. and it looks funny a bit

everything else is great with this beautiful with brazilian fretboard. and, sounds stunning along with this light ash (not swamp ash) body

다시 봐도 정말 멋진 넥이네요.

단점은 넥이 얇아. 그런데 다른 넥이 별로 생각나지는 않네

I like the maple fretboard if I choose one of them.

the volume pot went bad a while ago. I didn’t know it was sucking the tone till I replaced it today. I thought it just was noisy. 

this 50’s wiring with 0.02uf cap works very well even at the low volume. I’ve tried a few different values before. then 0.02uf in the diagram turned out the best to me.

gibson 50’s wiring with 0.02uf was too bright to me. I came back to the stock wiring with .1uf repro phonebook cap while replacing the old pots had some noise. the recent CTS pots under Fender header card turned out made in Taiwan. they seem to be linear pots btw.

  • en 50’s Jensen P12R and P12N output power – from tdpri.com

  • found this nice and old datasheet probably was a part of the Jensen brochure. and it’s great to see the exact output of the 50’s Jensen speakers. P12R was the stock speaker for tweed deluxe. and now I can see why it came with tweed deluxe. btw, P12R and P12Q share the same bell cover. and you cannot install P12N and P12P with the bell in tweed deluxe because of the size.

    P12R = 12watt

    P12N = 18watt

    and, this thread in the same forum says

    P12Q = 14watt

    P12P = 16watt

  • en Fender – Jensen speaker phase were reversed in 50’s tweed amps

  • I just tried 9V battery trick for 50’s Fender Champ 5F1 and Deluxe 5D3. and the speaker wiring turned out being reversed. both of them still have the factory wiring.

    And, both of them move backward (to the magnets) when they wired 9V + to the white wire, and – pole to the black wire.

    They mostly say there is no absolute speaker phase unless they are in the same cabinet. at the same time, many people say the speaker cones move forward when they hooked up in the right direction with 9V battery.

    Fortunately, 9V battery didn’t kill my 8″ Champ speaker, nor 12″ Deluxe speaker. but I’ve read some cases this trick killed their speakers.

    I’m not sure with 50’s and 60’s Jensen speaker’s correct phase. but, I started to believe Fender hooked them up this way. I’ve seen only 2 cases. and will update if I come across any Jensen speaker with different phase.

  • en Fender Mustang GT40 amp external speaker mod

  • did a simple job for a friend. he has some extra 50’s Jensen speakers and wanted to use them with this GT40 amp.

    he told me GT40 has mono and stereo output mode. so, we decided to leave one of the 6.5″ speakers as it was. then put a long thread 1/4 jack on the other output.

    the only place I found for the internal/external switch was the inside of the bass reflex vent on the back. the back panel itself is too thick to attach the switch.

  • en I’m into 5v4g than 5y3 with 6v6 tweed amps

  • [EDIT]

    I’m updating this post not to make people confused. I believed B+ was lower with 5v4g than 5y3. but 5v4g is increasing B+ and makes the bias warmer than 5y3. I guess it is the reason I feel the amps are more alive with 5v4g

    then I noticed the vintage amps with the original caps from 50’s and early 60’s are more vulnerable with 5v4g to 60hz hum. I’m just guessing leakage of the coupling caps and the filter caps could be the reason. I’m still enjoying 5v4g with the amps with new components. didn’t have an issue with my 5D3 which has new filter caps either. 

    [EDIT again]
    one of my 5V4G tubes shows very low B+. the 60hz hum came from it I believe

    there are more and better info for 5vg and 5y3 rectifiers on the gearpage.net 

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/swapping-rectifier-tubes-5ar4-vs-5r4-vs-5v4-vs-5y3.1382681/

     

    I hook up tweed champ, deluxe, and m-track 2×2 together while jamming with youtube. 5v4g sounds still alive with this stereo and digital setup to me. but, m-track 2×2 is cheap and sharing the one single full bandwidth with usb and instrument at the same time. it sounds good while using only one of them. it sucks when the knob is at the center.

    it’s the knob on m-track 2×2. don’t buy it if you want to use your guitar amps as monitor speakers while playing guitar through the direct input. maybe I’m just doing this wrong.
