    Re: Favourite effects for electrics.

    I'm with you. I didn't know anything about or use any pedals for years. Then I met a fellow who wanted to start a pedal company and I got a crash-course in all things pedals.

    Re: Favourite effects for electrics.

    I run my Fender 5 through my electric guitar rig which is really 2 rigs - a clean (Takt) and a dirty (V8).

    I use a Radial Bigshot to switch between the 2. Everything meets at a Pigtronix Infinity...

    The mandolin is named after the El Rey electric guitar Eastman has been selling for quite a while; the mandolin is a small version of that body shape.

    Re: Alternate Reality Fender Tenor Tele

    Some do and some don't. I did a search and it's inconsistent. Adding more baffle is that ukes tend to be tuned in 4ths leading one to think a 9th fret marker would be the preferred placing.

    Re: Nut Slots Cut Too Low

    If it's just buzzing on the fret closest to the nut, try filing the fret first. Otherwise pop the nut, slip a piece of index card underneath, reinstall and re-cut the nut slots.
