The Custom Shop operated out of the Leakesville guitar facility, which was closed in April, It opened in January of I originally had no idea the Custom Shop was a such a small group. During the slightly more than a year that they operated out of Leakesville, so much time was spent on each guitar that they were only producing an average of little less than one Wolfgang Custom Shop model per day. Approximately Custom Shop Wolfgangs were produced in Leakesville, of which 92 of these were specific orders and the rest were produced for the Vault or the NAMM show.. The attention to detail really showed in the finished product. Another specific customer orders were produced in Meridian after mid and another 70 or so Vault guitars, many of which are not really true Customs as they were using up remaining materials inventory. Thus, approximately Custom Shop Wolfgangs were built from through were specific customer orders. More than of those have made it to this site thus far and are pictured here. Again, some of the last 50 were really put together using whatever parts and pieces they had in order to help move the remaining inventory and shouldn’t be viewed as the same quality as a prior Custom Shop guitar.

The Timeline of the models

The system allowed a bass player to control a midi synthesizer directly from the bass with both accurate note tracking with immediate sounding notes. A common problem for early guitar and bass to midi converters was the so-called “midi-delay” — the almost imperceptible but still noticeable and distracting delay between hitting a note and the note sounding.

This was down to the physics of the leading technology used at the time for sensing the notes. The main sensor on most synth controllers at the time was the so called “hex pickup”. These thin pickups could usually be seen squeezed in between the bridge pickup and the bridge itself – indeed, kits were available allowing you to stick a hex pickup on your own favourite guitar. The triggering delay was caused by the time taken for the midi hex pick-up to sense the note being played.

Oct 23,  · A few posts ago, Sonusman recommended getting a used power amp for PA applications. So I started scouring around for amps, originally considering the Peavey CS because my bands used them in the 90’s. A reliable salesman recommended a used BGW C over the Peavey. He mentioned that BGW had a good reputation in the 80’s or so (and that’s about how old this amp .

Features one channel and two inputs; volume, bright, treble, treble expander, bass, bass expander, bright switch, deep switch, stand-by switch, pilot light for stand-by and operate. This amp was built to play larger halls and outdoor concerts. The lack of reverb was not a big issue as most live performances had acoustics full of reverberation halls, arenas. Peter Traynor built these things to stand up to road abuse, unlike a lot of vintage stuff.

It sounds great with either bass and guitar, providing a clean and loud tone. Works great in large club settings. Front panel has two input jacks, controls for treble boost, volume, treble expander, treble, bass expander, bass, presence, and bass boost. There is also a standby switch and corresponding green and red pilot lights. There are no effects in this head, but stomp boxes work just fine. The front of the amp is wrapped in a Fender-style silver-face cloth [ There is also a cooling fan installed.

With tubes, you’ll get about W from the Custom Special. Original tube [complement] was three 12AX7s and four 6CA7s that I swapped for s very easy, just boost bias about ten volts in order to have 30ma idle Original input resistor was k and I changed it for 5. Can be converted from to EL34, I think a pin jumper is needed.

All musicman basses are long scale (34″). I have a sterling 5 (H/S), and it is a pretty fast neck – but that’s mostly because it’s got narrow string spacing. If you like a wide 5 (like a Warwick or Spector or others), you’ll hate a musicman.

But they didn’t always go by the name ‘Taylor’ – if you’re a veteran of the ’70s music scene, you might remember their introduction as the Westland Music Company. No matter what they’ve been called over the years, some things haven’t changed: In this lineup of Taylor acoustic guitars, you’ll see that they continue to live up to their excellent reputation.

Home of the Choo Choo Subject: Serial number dating Mon Aug 24, 7: I don’t believe that I’ve posted it here yet. During the last few years, I have received more than a few T s that were the very first ones made on the gunstock carving machine and the Ekstrom-Carlson router, before production was even in sight.

They were in order, 6 keys per side, 3 keys per side, and the bass. The next ones were: Note that the decimal points progressed through the eight numerals and the last of the ten had two decimals. These would let us know and identify if any of the sales reps “lost” their sample. The Schmidt Serial Numbering head didn’t have the capability of letters, only numbers, so there would have been only a very few with the 8Mxxxxxx.

There were a few specials, like the Magnolia wood T bass for Ken Achard, author of “The History and Development of the American Guitar” with rear mounted pickups and controls , that were made, with Hartley’s blessing, off the records and with their initials for serial numbers.

Leo is no longer with us, of course, but the L is, in both an American-made version that is true to the L Leo first created and in an imported Tribute Series model that is an exceptional production rendition of the American-made model. Now asked to do it again, I was curious to see how the current L s compared with those of yesteryear. Especially among musicians, there’s a “they just don’t make ’em like they used to” bias, a prejudice that favors vintage over new. In some cases and in some ways, this attitude is justified—but not always.

There are companies whose products improve over time because of design refinements, craftsmen who develop in skill, technological advances, and improvements in manufacturing techniques. The American-Made L If you want a beautifully crafted and flawlessly finished pro-quality bass, the American-made L or L the five-string version is it.

It is an instrument that combines proven classic virtues with the best modern refinements. The body design blends the forms of Leo’s two most famous creations, and is shaped from a thick slab of premium swamp ash or alder. The body is fairly thick and therefore heavy, but the instrument balances so well that it hangs easy on the shoulder.

The L I received was especially elegant-looking with a tobacco burst finish on both the body and headstock.
