James, I would still use my amp whenever I could I think, I just might have to leave the volume pedal down about a third or something, just so I don't disturb people when I'm playing, at least while I'd be here, which might be a couple of years until I could get somewhere a bit more private maybe. Not sure. I've got all those effects and so on for a reason though, so I'd definitely be using them all still, I'd just need to set it up a bit quieter than normal.

Custom is having 10-46 plus a low 60 in AEADGBE. Again, it's a compromise in terms of not leaving the trem completely immobile, but I think it should be okay. I've tried to find the right balance with everything as I've gone along, but if anything needs to be tweaked, there's always the option. It's got three batteries - one which powers both piezo and fuzz factory, as they draw so little current each, and then two for the sustainer, to give it longer before I need to change them, as I use the sustainer a lot already.

Is that works #37? EDIT: Forgot it has a ToM bridge

About the string gauges a few posts ago - I put 10-52s instead of the (I think) 9-46s on my strat and there's not much difference in how bendy the tremolo is, might be different for a floyd rose though

don't the newer mesa amps have headphone outputs?

26

edit: 25 actually. 26 belongs to blue manson guy


and that depends how you have it set, but it should make a difference. it'll make a noticeable difference with a floyd rose anyway, as those are usually floating unless you have a 1971 quarter below it...

No idea - I don't think mine does though anyway. Plus it's probably better not to completely deafen myself, haha!

You can do this too with your custom, Bs.
Oh? Does it misbehave? I kind of thought that it would be a winning combo.

What, with the headphone output? I've had a Mesa with a headphone output, and it was quite usable. I believe it disables the power amp section though.

No not at all, I just haven't done anything creative with it.

Ah, I don't know, but I don't think the LSS has anything like that anyway.

I think you are right. The one I mentioned was a DC-3 from the late 90's (?) so maybe they realized it was a useless feature (in most cases) by the time your amp was released.

Or something.



What pedals are on your shopping list for when you return to the UK?

Hahaha! It looks so much more batshit crazy than I imagined. Amazing!

I'll email them about the Fuzz now. Maybe there's a reason, or if it's just an oversight, fuck it. At least I'll save a bit of dollar.

If they can still do it, awesome.

Lots.
Do tell.

And yeah, sounds about right. 25 MB-1s use the same amount of electronics as one Bs-1.

Did you get any pictures of the wiring by any chance?

Not once it was all in the guitar, no - I'll see if I can get some when I get it maybe, though it depends how much I can tear myself away from playing it, haha! Pedals-wise, I need to wait and see for sure yet, I need to make sure I have the funds, but all will be revealed in due course. I have a list of stuff I want to get, but I need to at least get to next week and see where I am in terms of my bank account and stuff. Off to France this weekend anyway. Just over 4 weeks to go until I can make some sweet sweet noise, haha!

Sounds good. Let me know if you need any bondage gear cables again.

And I wouldn't recommend taking the back plate off that guitar to be honest (as much as I want to see it). First, one of the boards could be attached to the back plate (I think two of mine are like this) and there's quite a lot crammed in there...

I posted that photo on Instagram, and the fella who got that Subaru guitar claims he knows the guy ordered the yellow guitar but he's not allowed to say who.
