  1. Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I just received delivery of a bass kit from Solo. All seems good, except the nut slot looks to be cut a bit crooked. The bottom of the nut is half a mm closer to the first fret on the bass side. Is this an actual problem? From my understanding, the only time the nut matters is when you are...
  2. Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    For the 2 guitars I have that need painted, wet-sanded and polished, I don't want to spend a lot on more tools like a buffer. I was looking at foam pad kits for the drill instead. I was looking at a kit like...
  3. Amps and Cabs
    Is there even such a thing (bare bones as in, no tubes, no speaker, no cabinet, not even the chassis or turret board; litterally just the bones aka electronic parts)? I also don't need pots and jacks and wire (got all that), but there's not likely to be a kit that doesn't include that stuff...
  4. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I'm embarking on my first scratch build, having done a kit amp at this time last year (build log starts on post 9 here http://www.guitarscanada.com/showthread.php?52818-Anyone-Built-Or-Running-a-TriWatt&highlight=Triwatt ). I looked at a lot of kits from a lot of makers, but then decided to go...
  5. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Here we go again. I've decided to build a clone of a Matchless Spitfire using a kit from Ceriatone. I opted to source the trannies and choke over here (Classic Tone). Here's the layout. Trannies and choke I have everything I need to get started now. I'll have Derrick Bell build a nice...
  6. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Despite my impoverished state, I am longing to build a new project and I am quite obsessed lately with the mysterious "Herzog" by Gar Gillies (and Randy Bachman). Aside from Randy's recordings and Gordie Johnson's stuff (love his tone!), I can't find any real demos of Herzogs online. I would...
  7. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I just finished my JTM45 today. Sounds excellent! I bought this as a Christmas goift to myself (I love building amps... didnt need it but wanted it type thing :) ) I was going to buy a Metroamps kit from the USA, but I ended up buying a transformer set and chassis from Trinity amps in Toronto...
  8. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Hey all. I've just finished a Weber 6A20 kit so I figured I'd start a thread describing the experience. The amp sounds great. Here's a few pics to get things started. The completed chassis... The front panel The rear panel And the guts I'll post some notes on the build later this...
  9. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I was wondering if any one knows of a Canadian Dealer of tube amp kits. I am pretty handy but don't think I can build one from scratch...a kit would be better. I would prefer not to have to deal with cross boarder issues and fees. Thanks, Jay.
  10. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Just purchased the 5A40 head amp kit from Weber over the weekend. The covering will be a double-aged tweed with tan dogbone handle, chrome plate and white lettering. As a tribute to Weber, I'm going to name the amp "Teddy." :smile: The plan is to make a 2 speaker cabinet sporting a couple of...
