    Just re-capped my 92’ 5150

    Does Arduino use C++?

    5-Way Tele Switch Ideas...

    What do you mean by, "they don't make a 4-way switch for imports?" It's just a blade switch. I don't recall running across one that needed replacing that required anything more than maybe reaming out the screw holes in the control plate.

    Log pots or component changes? Derailer

    When I want mine to clean up, I run the volume on the guitar down. Based on videos i've seen, that's how you're supposed to play a trainwreck amp.
