    How many guitars have you had in your lifetime?

    I have had nowhere near the number of the OP but enough and over a length of time I have no recollection of what happened to many of them! There are a few that got away and I wish I could get back. I would guess 30-40 over the last 40+ years with 12-15 at any given time.

    Import Jackson Project

    Gotcha, if that neck is conventional Charvel/Jackson the closest Floyd nut to the radius and 1 11/16 is an R10. The R10 is a .240 height which is different than other Floyd nuts, adjust your shelf height accordingly. I'm looking forward to seeing the final incarnation!

    Import Jackson Project

    Looks good, you may consider the behind the nut locking devices that Charvel/Jackson used. Either for the JT6 or Kahler. There is a corresponding truss rod cover that will require no further modification other than those to mount the lock device.

    Welcome, nice to have you here.

    It certainly looks as though you are making progress and it will soon be making noise. You have a variety of resistors there. Did you have a specific tolerance that you were willing to accept before you would replace one and how did they fare? The 290-0-290 PT should be more than enough as long...

    Starting a 2204 build

    Looks like a great project! I'll be following along so keep us updated.

    Mercury Magnetics - long lead time?

    Transformers and many components have become more difficult to get. I ceased to use MM long ago as I did not find them superior to other manufacturers . They were always much more expensive and took a while to ship. My experience lately is if you want something specific it may be a long wait...

    Where to buy tubes in uk that’s reputable?

    I'm not sure the issue you're trying to fix is a tube but I have had good luck with Watford Valves who are in the UK.

    Ken as a teen worked at what became Marshall Amplification for months, let that marinate. I'm certain I could teach him something as he could me. The only difference is my willingness to share what I have learned. I don't give him a pass. His opinions of someone's ability to learn mean nothing...

    Once again Ken shares knowledge gleaned from a years of tube amp repair, maintenance and design. His willingness to assist those less than able to understand that they will never succeed is admirable.:applause:

    Heavy love …Leslie speakers.

    Matt O'Ree has done some YouTube stuff with his amps through pretty modified Leslie. Always loved a B3 with a Leslie.

    '77 JMP 100W MKII Red Plating

    I agree with you Pete and think voltages throughout the amp are likely lowered by the bias drawing excessive current. I was curious if this hypothesis is supported by these readings.

    '77 JMP 100W MKII Red Plating

    400v or a bit less would be correct for a 50w in that time frame but not certain on the 100W. How do the pre-amp voltages look. I would think they would be low as well if the PT is weak. I would also think the filaments could be lower than expected but would be dependent on what is actually...

    RIP Vin Scully

    He was one of a kind! A national day of mourning should be declared and it should be a holiday moving forward. I would even be willing to compromise and like Washington and Lincoln, combine Vin Scully and Chick Hearn Days into one.
