When you get that studio converted we can all have a road trip to jam out in it and christen it properly!!

Sounds like a great idea. I've been look for some pics of it but can't for the life of me find them - will have to take some more.  8)

Just sat down and went through areas I need to focus on when consolidating the IM. Also had a look at the Master The Major Scale lesson pdf and I'm really excited about starting that alongside consolidation.

So with a need to restart both PMT and JUSTIN Method Exercises and learn some new songs, my new schedules is going to look like this for a good few months.

Master The Major Scale
Major Scale with metronome 8ths @ 110 bpm   

Min Pentatonic & Blues Scales Impro    
Major Pentatonic Scale Impro
   

JUSTIN Method BC then IM = BC158   

IM Consolidation
One Minute Changes Barres & Triads
Triad Grips
Legato
Picked Fingerstyle
RUST - Percussive Hit & Chips Spread Splangs, Muted strumming, Bending Strings
Notes On The Neck

New Songs - BSB 1 & 2, RSB & Bucket List

Practical Music Theory
   

Total Practice Session Time   60-75 mins

Well after my collaboration with the Schlaffwagen crew (Roman and Leo) I've been meaning to update my Roadcase to share not only the experiences of working with others but a few other things I picked along the way. However, with the family here on holiday things are hectic and it will have to wait for now but hopefully there may some info that might help others new to the recording/mixing game.

So instead here's a video that seemed fitting for the Ascension Day backing track. The tracks creators Third World War are nowadays seen as proto-punk but back in the day in the early '70s would have been seen as just rockers. The group were a true working class outfit and given what was happening in those days, you can see where the lyrics for the song came from. So anyway fast forward 10yrs or so and Thatcher acts to bury socialism once and for all during the 1984 miners strike. Now I'm not wishing to politicize the forum but this is just how it was at the time.





So hopefully you'll enjoy this for now and my update will follow asap.  8)

Been a while since I updated my Roadcase but after a rainy day in Normandy I finally started some initial work on upgrading my 21 year old Squier Affinity. So here's some pics. Soldering to be done later this year when I'm more confident.

Project Affinity & Beyond

Nervously took a hand drill to the scratch plate for mounting the coil splitting mini toggles :



Mini Toggles in place :





Pots and 5 way added next :





Then finally the HSH Pups - Iron Gear Hammerhead HBs & Smoke Stack II single





Next step - dismantle the Affinity and offer up the new plate to check clearances, before soldering. Going to use the old wiring rig for experimenting and testing. Once that's been de-solder and re-solder to a good standard, I'll wire this all up.

Cheers

Toby

Forgot to add, the bottom Tone knob will be a dummy and used as a blend pot, so both HBs can be used at the same time.

Big thanks to TB and Dan, for advice and answers to all the dumb questions I was asking a couple of months back. Without their input I don't think I'd would have the confidence to take this on. Cheers guys  8)

Watching with interest. I recently acquired an Affinity Strat and am unsure what - if anything - to do with it.

Very exciting!
I'd love to being able to pimp my own guitars, but I know myself well enough to not to.

Thought I'd let folks know that I'm finally making some progress on the ancient Squier upgrade. Its been a few months now but every time I reach for the soldering kit, I start bricking it (quaint English colloquialism) and decide to put it to one side for a bit. Mind you I've been busy with other things but the French Monsoon season has kinda forced my hand, so I've made a start on a few connections and am typing while the iron heats up for round two !!



If there's an award for neatest wiring and soldering, I'd be asked "are you kidding?" but hopefuly function over form will win the day. Biggest ball ache was soldering the micro switch to split all 3 pups but now that's done I'm hoping its plain sailing from here.

If this guitar picks up a signal when I'm done, I'll be friggin amazed but you live in hope. As I seem to be on a roll, I'll keep you posted.

Cheers

Toby

Slow, steady and methodical, Toby. Then sure you'll get it right.

I'm glad you've found time to get on to something practical - it's very rewarding.

Your soldering is nothing to be ashamed of. I've seen worse from supposed professionals!

Thanks guys. Looking more like Spaghetti Junction now  ;D



Just need to solder new jack to vol pot and add grounds for it. Then its strip and shield the "strat" solder the grounds and test. All being well if I get sounds it will just be a case of reassembly, restring, adjust and play. Or if it goes to rat's pooh, back to the beginning.

Well another step nearer to completing this project. Body needs a good clean before shielding and I may need to trim a small section - neck pup to 2way etc a bit tight.

Pic below is just temporary to see everything went in.



Good news is I have sound after plugging in and taping the pups with a screwdriver blade, even the 2 way coil spliters  seem to be working ! Bad news I attached the jack before realising the wires needed threading through the body first. Doh, first boob so far.

Anyway more testing tomorrow and I'll take my time on the last few stages. How the pro's knock this work out in a few hours I'll never know. But can't wait to play the damn thing now.

Cheers

Toby

That's fine work, Toby, and a fine looking guitar.

As for the pros...when you've done 10, 20, 100s of these jobs then you'll do the similar.

Now we can start looking forward to hearing it  ;)
