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

I'm selling my Fender 50th ann. strat. It is shell pink and is a 50s reissue. It has a v-neck and was made in Japan in 1996. I can send a pic if you would like. It is in great shape though Fender aged the pick ups and knobs. Make me an offer.

I have a new American Deluxe Strat with the noiseless pickups. The one thing I like is that you can turn the guitar to 10, and if your amp is clean, there is NO noise unless you play. It is the cleanest sounding guitar I have ever played. I had a 25th Anniversary model, but this one sounds better.

Re: Fender Noiseless Strat Pickups

Man! After all the advertising Kinman has done to tell the UNIVERSE about his amazing pickups, ya'll STILL don't know about him and his fantastic pickups??? Look people....if it's clear, uncompressed, sweet, dynamic, AUTHENTIC Strat tones you want, y'all won't find them with the Fender Noiseless crap, or the Lace Holy Grail garbage!
Open your brain-things and check out Kinman's AVn Series of pickups. If to you, they aren't amazing, and put all other brands to SHAME, y'all should really be playing Les Pauls, because it's clear you don't know ANYTHING about Strat sound.
"Nuff said!

I have not liked Fender's Noiseless Pickups either. I find them harsh, metallic, industrial, non-Strat and without harmonics & chime.

Mr. Kinman makes good pickups and so does Tony
Amendolare at ElectroKraft custom handwounds, for less than half the price of boutique category brands. See www.harmonycentral.com for reviews and you be the judge.

Re: Fender Noiseless Strat Pickups

Ok,
I have a 1983 Fender Elite Strat with noiseless pickups. Everyone that plays my guitar tells me that it has a much better sound than their Strat. I am not sure what the newer noiseless pickups sound like but I do know mine are awesome. They also have a pre circuit that runs off a battery 9 volt. Hope this helps. Bill

Coronado II bass?

Saw one of these for sale recently and was curious about the sound quality and its value. Hollow body bass, completely bound including F holes. Sort of green mint/mist color, 2 (single coil?) pickups. Is this a good or great bass? Asking price is $650. Any opinions out there? Thanks.

Re: Coronado II bass?

I like mine and think it's worth more. However, I'm trying to sell mine too, right now. The problem is that no one knows about this great bass.

Neck Finish - Strat

Hello:

Got a slight ding in the finish on the neck and wondered what type varnish Fender uses? Anyone have any luck touching up a neck?

Thanks,
Jesse

hi

Hi, I've got a question to ask. My fender strat is about 2 years old, and I just found out from my repair man that the neck is bowed so bad that It has to be heated to be bent back straight, and the frets recarved or whatever. Ive heard from some guy that he had that done to his guitar(which didnt have a trussrod) and it just went back to being bowed within about 1 year. And he had to have it heated again. I was wondering if that's gonna happen to my guitar. I dont wanna have to pay this much money to have it heated and bent back to normal every 11 months. HOpefully you can give me some insight. I was also wondering how long Fender's warranty is on their necks and stuff. Thanks alot Todd
