Well Keirweir that could be arranged :smile:

Here's the design I came up with for the front cover plate:

I'm trying it out of different woods, with the bolt scheduled to be brass... I've got the background/wood about half done now...

Well, life is certainly a messy business... I've had to be away for the last 10 days for work, and in my want to finish, messed up the plate work... sanded thru the veneer :?

But it does sound good :smile: I'll try to get some clips posted tomorrow

Sorry for the delay... I've had unexpected work I couldn't turn down... anyway, here's a link to some clips, just messing with different settings and picking dynamics, recorded earlier in the month. It's recorded in the living room, at a moderate volume, guitar into Real Tube Reverb, Rivera TBR 1M as preamp, 2 6l6 based hi-fi amp, 2 12 inch Weber NeoMags in open backed cabinet. (With the exception of the Low Vol Feedback with Tapping and Misc. Settings clip, where a '67 Champ amp is added on top. :smile: ) There are no effects boxes. There are some parts that sound quite like a phasing device, but it's just changing picking positions, including some bits where I'm picking somewhere around the 12th fret.

I decided these clips were just too lousy to keep posted... and I hadn't done the final intonement/adjustment yet, so there was some string buzz etc... so I'll post some better ones at the end of the topic...

I still need to do some mods to the Tube Screamer... it needs a bit more "clean" area on the amount of distortion control, and it's considerably louder than the UGB alone, so I have to adjust the volume pot whenever I switch the TS on or


Um please excuse the stupid question but are we talking an Ibanez Tube Screamer? You can include them on-board a guitar? Is that super complicated? I LOVE my tube screamer - especially since I got it modded by Keeley. Do you include 2 knobs for it then? And a switch? Or....

Thanks!

Yes, well it's a BYOC Ibanez Tube Screamer clone, modded by myself, and yes it's in the guitar, and no it's not really super complicated... :smile: I have 3 knobs, Tone, Gain, and Volume, and a bypass switch, AND a LED :D I like it alot!

Sorry all, about the clips (and I know, the posted ones are ramblin :D :D :D )... the band is on leave for at least 6 months now, so no band clips... at some point in the not-too-distant future I hope to gain access to a Twin, and/or a regular Jerry setup so you can hear something cleaner.

Well I'm happy to say that things have turned around and conspired to let me keep the Wolf Quilt for myself :-) :smile: :-)

I've been playing it for a few months now and it's totally great...


Anyway, I'm just completing a new JerryCaster that I'll list in the 'Garage Sale' area (with more pics and info) as well as on the website... Happy Holidays!

I think you missed your chance...

I really liked your bolt/tri-triangles what happened to it?

Yep, you snooze you loozzze :smile: :smile:

I've still got the ruined one... I just didn't have the time to spend on making another... and I wanted to get the cavity covered and play it; so I tried just taking a photo and putting resin over it... decopour!

I like the bolt design too... I may re do it when I get some time. (I'll reuse the brass bolt and just start over with the wood.)
