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

Both aren’t mine though these axes are quite beautiful.

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 Things seem a little strange?

  • What is reality?

    How real are you? What if everything you are, everything you know, all the people in your life as well as all the events were not physically there but just a very elaborate simulation?

    Philosopher Nick Bostrom famously considered this in his seminal paper “Are you living in a computer simulation?,” where he proposed that all of our existence may be just a product of very sophisticated computer simulations ran by advanced beings whose real nature we may never be able to know.

    Now a new theory has come along that takes it a step further – what if there are no advanced beings either and everything in “reality” is a self-simulation that generates itself from pure thought?

    We could simply be part of an ancestor simulation, engineered by posthumans. Even the process of evolution itself could just be a mechanism by which the future beings are testing countless processes, purposefully moving humans through levels of biological and technological growth. In this way they also generate the supposed information or history of our world. Ultimately, we wouldn’t know the difference.

    But where does the physical reality that would generate the simulations comes from, wonder the researchers? Their hypothesis takes a non-materialistic approach, saying that everything is information expressed as thought. As such, the universe “self-actualizes” itself into existence, relying on underlying algorithms and a rule they call “the principle of efficient language.”

    Excerpt – Click link for complete article: https://bigthink.com/surprising-science/new-hypothesis-argues-the-universe-simulates-itself-into-existence

    Picture: Your posthuman great grandchild ponders your fossilized skull and wonders what inspired you to reach for the stars.

    There you have it friends. Yes, this paper is groundbreaking and recently published but it is just what I have been thinking here for almost a decade or more and what the Buddha taught, to those with ears to hear and eyes to see, twenty-five hundred years ago.

    Flesh is temporary, transient and only stuff like the dust of the Earth. Life is something precious which is eternal and animates flesh upon the Earth and in this state we become capable of action, karma. When we die we no longer act we become “stuff” once again.

  • en NPN Germanium transistor list for Fuzz pedals

  • My interest in fuzz pedal came from JMI Tone Bender III reissue which belongs to a friend. this pedal has 3 of OC75 glass tube transistors.

    And, unfortunately, My Sola Sound Bum Fuzz came with 3 of NPN transistors while OC75 is PNP type. then found this web page with germanium and silicone transistor lists

    http://vintageradio.me.uk/info/radiocon_data_trans.htm

    There are 26 of germanium NPN transistors from the data sheets

    ASY28, ASY29

    2N388, 2N388A

    2N1302, 2N1304, 2N1306, 2N1308,

    OC139, OC140, OC141

    AD161

    AC187

    NKT713, NKT773, NKT774, NKT781

    2SD72

     
    Black glass tube NPN transistors are OC139, OC140, OC141 from them.

     
    OC75 is like this according to this web page on alltransistors.com

    Type Designator: OC75 (PNP)

    Maximum Collector Power Dissipation (Pc): 0.125 W

    Maximum Collector-Base Voltage |Vcb|: 20 V

    Maximum Collector-Emitter Voltage |Vce|: 20 V

    Maximum Emitter-Base Voltage |Veb|: 10 V

    Maximum Collector Current |Ic max|: 0.01 A

    Transition Frequency (ft): 0.1 MHz

    Collector Capacitance (Cc): 50 pF

    Forward Current Transfer Ratio (hFE), MIN: 55

    And, for OC139, OC140 is

    Vcb: 20 V / 20 V

    Vce: 20 V / 20V

    Forward Current Transfer Ratio (hFE), MIN: 40 / 75

     
    I’m going to try OC139. simply beccause, OC139 is cheaper than OC140 on ebay. and I’m wondering how Transition Frequency differences work with Fuzz. I’ll update in a few weeks

  • en Retro Bj4.3 part 3

  • Needed to see the B44.3 chassis to make a new chassis for this project. got the chassis along with the original Bj4 chassis. it’s the first time to see the original version. and I can see the wheelbase is identical to Bj4 worlds edition.

     

     

    B44.3 chassis is 4mm longer than B44’s. but still the Bj4 and B44 bodies fit the chassis. the structure is different for the front and rear bulkheads. Bj4 was built with Nitro TC3 parts. and B44 series has it’s own bulkheads and tranny, diff cups and more

    you can check the wheelbase here

    And, the under tray came from B44.2 Bulldog body set from Pro-line

  • en Jensen EM-1002 10″ speaker with syntox-6 ceramic magnet

  • didn’t know Jensen had Concert series with ceramic magnets. this PM-1002 sounds more like Jensen 10J11 than WGS Veteran ceramic to me. even I believed it was an alnico speaker when I grabbed this off ebay for $69 plus shipping. then googled what Syntox-6 was after a week playing this in my 5F1 project. a bit disappointed while figuring out what the magnet was. but still happy with this NOS Jensen with the original box. and it is way louder than Jensen 10J11 alnico speaker as I expected.

    I’ve tried Mullard and a few different 12ax7 tubes with it. and going to stick with GE black plate 5751 for a while.
