trem block on strat?

i use heavy strings and i dont use trem so i added two more springs to my strat and tightened the hell out of the 2 big screws in the back. this disables me from using tremolo. someone said i should put a block behind the bridge instead. what exactly does this mean and what is the diff between that and what i do

my super 60 has gone quiet why?

Hello; My 18 year old son has been using my Super 60 out in the garage, and now it doesn't make any volume. How can I fix it? It warms up all the tubes light up, the speaker looks fine. I miss it, my tely misses it.

Re: my super 60 has gone quiet why?

Check all the tubes to make sure they are seated properly, both preamp (AX7's) and the power (6L6's) tubes. If you aren't getting anything at all check speaker wire. Otherwise take it to a fender authorized repairman. If your living in New England I can give you a few names.

Were you able to fix the Super 60. Mine has the same symptoms and I haven't been able to get it fixed.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

fender wildwood 1

What would a Fender Wildwood 1 be worth today? Any information you might know about this guitar would be a big help.

Worth of 1986 Japanese Fender Squire ?

Hi there ! I am based in Australia and just picked up an '86 squier- Japanese made.This is the first I have had my hands on and am unsure of its value.It has good "packed" machine heads and two decent looking string brakes on the headstock.....it actually feels similar to my usa strat.Any help would be appreciated...thanks

Re: Worth of 1986 Japanese Fender Squire ?

250-300 tops

86 Squire Strat

I just bought one. Serial # E673240. I bought it at a garage sale. I just had my set up guy ( who is the best in the business) go threw this ax. It plays now incredible. The pickups are hot as hell. It has been beat up so bad but after setting it up it is the baddest ax I haver played. I plugged it into a Marshall JCM 800 and it kicked the snots out of my USA Strat from 1982. The Squire name says it is a cheap guitar. I wish that people would understand that this is a Ferrari of guitars. If you play a strat then play one of these. LOL

Discerning originals from re-issues

How can i tell if a '59 Strat is original or a re-issue? where can i go to look for markings or anything concerning the year?

Fender Coronado XXII schematics

I need a little help replacing the pots on this great guitar. I can read the backs of two of the pots, and they definitely say 1MEG. There are huge mounds of solder on the others. Are they likely to be all 1MEG? Are the volume and tone pots typically different? Pointers to schematics would also be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Fender Coronado XXII schematics

CONTACT THE FOLKS AT ED ROMAN. THEY KNOW GUITARS.

IF YOU FIND THE SCHEMATICS (OR THEY'RE RE-CREATED FOR YOU), PLEASE E-MAIL ME. THANKS

Wanted: Antigua Fender

Preferrably a Tele but I'd be interested in any solidbody guitar or bass with that finish.

Re: Wanted: Antigua Fender

I have a 1978 Fender Stratocaster in the Antigua finish. It is 100% original and the finish is near mint. The neck is straight and the frets are unbelieveable - they look unplayed!

It also comes with the original case and all original paperwork. Contact me to make offer.

Thanks,

Anthony

Re: Wanted: Antigua Fender

Do you still have this strat available?

Re: Wanted: Antigua Fender

: Preferrably a Tele but I'd be interested in any solidbody guitar or bass with that finish.

Re: Wanted: Antigua Fender

I'm looking for a P-Bass with that finish, I use to have one but sold it mid 80's, anyone know of one available?

Re: Wanted: Antigua Fender

I've searched fender's mrgearhead site - couldn't find the right one. ANYONE with ANY info on the wiring in this guitar - please share.

Thanks

MEXICAN SHIT FOR 300 POUND!!!

Imagine, a bloody CASH RECYCLE Shop wanted to sell to me, an unexperienced bloody beginner, a mexican Stratocaster for 300 Pound, assuring me of its actual value of 600-800 POUND!!! That is so embarrassing! Fortunately I asked a good friend before buying it, but I was about to do the biggest mistake of my young life!!

1965 fender mustang

i got one and u dont thats why your reading this because you think im selling it and im not

Re: 1965 fender mustang

: i got one and u dont thats why your reading this because you think im selling it and im not

Big Freakin Deal! I have an original '63 Strat and its carrying case. The Strat smokes the Mustang to hell and back. Have you seen the going prices for working vintage Strats? About what a nice downpayment on a house would be! Oh, and mine isn't for sale either... not until it's 50 years old and worth more than the GDP of some small nations. :)

Re: 1965 fender mustang

I got one too. Is it worth anything? I customized mine - changed the pickups, paint, and pick gaurd so I probably destroyed any value that it had -- but it sounds good.

Re: fender flame

I've got one of those too. Got it from my dad's cousin in the late eighties. I've seen the robben ford one and thats not what it is - it's similar but not quite as cheesy looking.

1964 Japaneze Guitar

I am trying to identify a Thinbody Archtop Electric Guitat built in aroun 1963. The body has a red sunburst finish and a headstock similar to a 1964 Fender, the body is similar to a 1964 Epiphone Casino. The only identification on the guitar is the word "Japan" on the heel and "made in Japan" on the Tailpiece. Obviously built in Japan this appears to have attempted to copy attributes from several name manufacturers. Perhaps for a department store. I would appreciate any input.

Washburn WRT44

First of all, I haven't been on the site in months. It's good to be back. I need some help with a non-fender question. I bought a Washburn WRT44 effects unit and haven't had any luck finding a footpedal. I need to buy a footpedal, but if anyone knows where I can get a schematic of one I could build it.
Thanks Rod48
