A quick video to show how to fix dents and scratches and fill in holes on a guitar body

A look at the guitar electronics and pickup wiring, the scratchplate/pickguard and the installed killswitch.

The Pyle Pro PDC22 is an unpowered Dual Direct DI box. It converts unbalanced signals to balanced signals andbalanced to unbalanced. It also features a parallel out in order to loop a signal back. The DI also has a -0dB, -20dB and -40dB which allows you to connect higher powered connection to it to send via balanced out like amp speaker outs etc. It also features a ground lift. It is of full metal construction and in my tests noiseless. It does exactly what it is requested to do.

What we tried to achieve here was a very clean matt headstock. Black decal on white. We wanted the logo to be applied in a way that you can't see how it was applied.

This seems more than a worthy KickStarter to support. The O'Keefe Music Foundation that brought us 46 and 2 cover by Tool want to keep going.

In this video we use the fret rocker to check for frets that might be hight or low and adjust them with a file. we also ase a fret board protector to prevent any damage to the fret board near the frets we are working on.

DigiTech Grunge demo and review

The DigiTech Grunge pedal is a high gain affordable distortion pedal. The sounds is full and good and but the gain seems a bit higher than I would expect for a 'grunge' tone.

Over the next months I will be reviving an old westfield guiter (note no caps on westfiled, just doesn't deserver it). This is the first video to introduce the project.
