  1. Iโ€™ve found an SG on the Gibson site called an HP and this has a button fitted to the upper rear horn so this must be an approved place to fit oneโ€ฆ..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
  2. Hi everyone. Does anyone have any thoughts, advice or experience of moving the neck heal strap button up onto the upper horn???? Thanks Mike
  3. Stood the Bass upside down and poured the glue in through the F hole leaving it land in the area behind the speed clip ๐Ÿ‘
  4. Well spotted ๐Ÿ˜‚ it does set solid eventually but the quoted 24 hours is more fore straight joints. Letting it set as I need it will probably take 3-4 days as itโ€™s kinda like leaving a bottle opened ๐Ÿ‘
  5. Well guys Iโ€™ve done it. Marked and drilled. I glued two speed clips together and made sure that the screw fitted just right. 1. To ensure the screw went in without to much trouble and 2. To ensure it was tight enough. I added double sided tape to the clip and the fed the yellow line through as shown. I pulled on the line so that the clip stuck onto the inside of the laminate. Once this was secure I removed the cord and carefully screwed in the strap lock. The guitar was then turned upside down and I poured in a good amount of Gorilla glue. Itโ€™s not upside at an angle that ensures the glue levels itself over the area of the speed clip and will be left overnight to set. Fingers crossed this does the job ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
  6. Hi. Yes itโ€™s a comfort thing. Iโ€™ve done it with my Casady and it just sits right ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Hi. I did mine about 20 months ago and I play in two bands so itโ€™s been used a lot for practice with gigs included. Itโ€™s still solid. I drillled a small hole first then turned her upside down and carefully poured wood glue in ensuring that the initial angle would make sure that the glue settled in the correct place. I think the Hofner is a thinner laminate so I may drill a hole and add some epoxy resin, allow it to cure then drill a smaller hole again and add the strap lock ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Hi. Thanks for that. There is already a strap lock on the heel but having it there pushes out the bass as I have a bit of a belly. The Casady sits great after the work. Im just kind of wondering if the wood glue would do the job if I add a large amount. Iโ€™d love to know whatโ€™s in there
  9. Hi everyone. Iโ€™ve bought a Hofner Verithin bass and Iโ€™m looking to add a strap lock in the upper horn. I have a Jack Casady Bass and Iโ€™ve done the same. Has anyone done this to a Hofner and is it gonna be a similar job to what Iโ€™ve done with the Casady. I drilled a hole and added the strap lock then turned the bass upside down and poured in wood glue allowing it to dry which appears to have done the trick. Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Could anyone take the top schematic and draw me a simple idiots guide drawing like the one below showing where each wire capacitor/resistor should go. I can solder but I donโ€™t understand how to read the schematic. Many thanks in advance Mike ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
  11. Is this a 15uf ๐Ÿง Itโ€™s on a Jack Casady bass ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Hi. Iโ€™ve tried 250kโ€™s A&B added new capacitors and a new resistor but the problem of on or off still persists. Can anyone draw me a dummies schematic or give basic advice on what to check for. Iโ€™m assuming and I have no way of checking both the transformer or the OHM selector switch
  13. Guys. Iโ€™ve added another post about this last week. I own a white JC bass (2014) which is awesome. Iโ€™ve bought a second in gold (2002) and Iโ€™m after some technical advice. The gold bass volume and tone controls are either on or off where as the white one has full control. Iโ€™ve played around with 250k pots both A&B and Iโ€™ve wired it exactly like my white one. Iโ€™ve renewed the caps and resistor but it just wonโ€™t work as it should. Am I missing something here as Iโ€™m kinda getting nowhere. If anyone can draw me an idiots schematic then that would be really appreciated ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š
