they are my recent build with some vintage components like Philips caps made in Holland and Roederstein caps made in W. Germany.

one of cabinets is 18″ wide version like the early 5E3. Fender changed the width to 20″ right after some of the transition models. even there were wide panel 5E3 at ’55.

진짜 엄청 멋있네요

응 얘들도 오리지날하고 비교 했는데.. 만들고 한달 조금 넘으니까 아주 가깝더라. 아무래도 새거라 힘은 더 좋고. 받은 분들이 아주 좋아해. 오리지날 가진 분들도 만족하니까 나도 기분 좋고

  • en tweed princeton 5D2 came back to life

  • I came across this tweed princeton a couple of days ago. it had more than few issues with the pots, electrolytic caps, wires, grounding, input jacks and one of the resistors.

    and it sounds beautiful like a win instrument with the new components.

  • en 5D3 tweed deluxe with the factory original P12R

  • my jenen P12R came back from the re-cone job at my local speaker repair shop. this new cone I got off ebay doesn’t look like the original as I expected. but it still sounds very close to my silver P12R speaker came from the friend who gave me this P12R. 

    50’s Jensen P12R restoration has begun

    this tweed deluxe 5D3 came from December 1954. and the speaker came from a ’54 5C3. the date code one the speaker is 1953. they are like a family. 

    it’s not easy to pick only one speaker for my tweed deluxe so far. P12n is a great sounding speaker with it’s chime and volume. but I want a jensen which is crispy at the lower volume. maybe the bell cover doesn’t affect the sound. but me and the friends tested two different jensen p12r came from the same era. and the result was different at low volume in 5C3. and most of all, p12r looks way better with the bell. 

    it sounds really good with it’s look. even I like that red safety sticker on the bell.

  • en 50’s Jensen P12R restoration has begun

  • a close friend gave me his NOS or like new silver p12r speaker for my tweed deluxe 5d3 a few months ago. then I got me a P12N which I like for the last 15 years. 

    but, I couldn’t help myself to search the original p12r with the bell. I mean p12r from the same era with the same color.

    I dropped by his place a couple of days ago. he showed me this p12r pulled out of his 5C3 a while ago. it was the present for me and my 5d3. I ordered a speaker cone looked like the original even before I knew he had this. and I like the black switchcraft 1/4 plug which I’ve been after.

  • en gibson les paul junior DC ’83

  • i’ve got this les paul tv yellow a couple of weeks ago.

    it has very nice tone saturation and the ranges of volume control.

    very simple control with playability, of course the design is simple too.

    i checked the serial number as I learned through the wikipedia. it has made at ’83 when gibson company shifted kalamazoo to nashville before they established historic / customshop line.

    replaced the stock ceramic cap with sprague black beauty capacitor right after I got this beauty. and this les paul sounds way better than before with the sustain.

    lucky strike it is.
