Re: Yamaha TA 20 amp

I have the 20 30 and 60 and they are really quite nice. Surely wins the prize for most innovative amp of the decade or maybe every decade. And the take out food container speakers are definitely a novel idea. You wouldn't think they would work but they do. Wonder why they abandoned the idea? Amaze y...

Re: Yamaha Revstar RS620 with SD '59 and Distortion pups

Great thread Rasha. as with any mod it's all down to personal preference and playing style ( which I completely lack). I was somewhayt taken aback by the reference to radio Shack and guitar pickups. Around here RS is pretty kuch dead and was never known for high end anything. Glad you like your fina...

Re: Yamaha sc guitars

I gave my 600 a little run the other day for the first time in quite a while. Still one of my favorites. The looks don't hurt either. Congrats on your purchase.

Re: How to care for the finish of Revstars

I was always a little suspicious of those brushed finishes. I guess Yamaha was going for the rat rod look more than the cafe look. This may sound strange but I use the pop up cleaner towels meant for the shop for lots of tasks including cleaning my glasses. I know the optometrist would have a fit bu...

Re: Revstar 502T Bridge Pup Volume Drop

Andy
I saw this thread a while back but just finally got a chance to check my 502 tonite. There does not seem to be a volume drop when going to the bridge pup except maybe a tiny bit if the tone is rolled off.

Re: Yamaha SA-30 and SA-15 Whammy Bar

Looks good. I could use a couple myself. As to price you are making them so you should set a price that compensates you for your time and the materials plus a bit on top of that. How much is your time worth to you that is the question. If you figure it out let me know.

Re: SGV 800: Replacement Tremolo bar?

Seems someone should go into the Yamaha trem arm business. I've lost track of how may are missing from my guitars. I'm pretty sure I could reproduce the early flat strap type. We have a water jet place local to me and they could probably make them from stainless. The question always becomes economy ...

I was assuming from his post that he had the broken pick guard that he could use for a pattern.

The SA 15 pickguard is different from the 30,50 etc. I made one by tracing around the broken one on my 15. I beveled the edges with a 1 inch paint scraper. I used clear plexiglass and painted the reverse white. They are single ply. As for knobs something close will have to do.

Re: Studio Lord and Lord Player update

Nice job Bill. 22 different models Wow! I have considered a LP type many times but always found something more unique to buy. As to Elite guitars I has drooled over that collection many times. He is little pricey but seems to have only really nice items for sale. Once again I thanks you for all your...
