Alright mate, how's tricks? I do regret selling that one, but it looks like it's found a seriously good home! Bet it does sound fantastic with those Mules in, the Emerald's sounded awesome in "Bluey". Only get chance to play very, very infrequently now... too much other stuff to do! :roll: :lol: No ...

A lot depends on which model Love Rock and what style tuners you want to replace them with. If your Gotoh's are the "plastic tulip" buttoned variety, then a set of Gotoh SD90's are the OEM tuners, and fit straight on without any messing around. In fact, any Gotoh/MIJ/MIK/MIE/MIC tuners should fit st...

Had a single channel 50w 2x12 (4104?) for a while, nice sounding amp, but needed a lot of maintenance. When it had just been serviced, it sounded sweet as anything, but after a couple of months, the overall output level would drop off slightly, and continue to drop over the period of a few months. B...

Had a 1980 LS60 for a while, that I'd installed a pair of Bare Knuckle Emerald pickups into. When I sold the LS60, the original pickups went back in and the Emerald's went into my '99 LS70. They're still in there quite a few years later, so they must be good! :wink:

Re: Technical Question Re: Speakers

Have a Marshall AVT 412 speaker cabinet (8 ohms). Can I run any head through it provided it is '8 ohms' as well? Bob It'll also depend on the actual wattage of the cab too. Generally, most cabs are fairly "robust" in terms of their power handling capabilities, most 4x12 cabs are designed to handle ...

AFAIK, all Tokai MIJ are 17/18 deg pitch headstocks.

+2 The Gotoh mkII PAF's are great, toneful pickups, that really capture that PAF-tone. Much better than most other mass manufactured pickups. If you do want to replace them, try and find some hand wound pickups, they really are the best thing you can put in your guitar. Tuners wise, the standard fit...

Both are Gibson Les Paul Custom copies, japan made, mahogany body&neck, BUT in the case of the edwards, it has also ebony fingerboard, long tenon set neck, Seymour duncan pickups, gotoh tuners... and my question is: why the tokai is more expensive? Just for being a TOKAI? I'm amazed no one has pick...

Like Ozeshin said, PAF's & P90's are chalk & cheese... P90's are single coil pickups, commonly referred to as "soapbars" (because they resembled bars of soap). Prior to 1957, when the PAF's became the standard pickup, P90's were used in all Gibson electric guitars, and have been used in numerous mod...

Hey MV, I've got sets of Bare Knuckle Pickups in most of my guitars, including my trusty old LS70F, and they're frankly superb. :) I prefer the Hot PAF type like you mentioned, but wanted a more mid-biased sound, so I opted for a set of Black Dogs (8.5 & 10k) to replace the SD 59 & JB that I'd had i...
