Thanks for reading! More to come...
Agreed! The blacktop Filtertrons sound great (especially with flat wounds) but the guitar was wired by crackheads using bargain bin wire. Most unreliable thing ever. I can't gig with my 5422 until I remedy this.

Like you, I'll be doing a rewire very soon!
I got a flock of Seagulls, a Martin, a Breedlove, A Resophonic (I need to play), a new Gretsch and a old G&L that require electricity to sound good. I got an electric bass too, and a mandolin that I have played, maybe, 3 times. For snicks and grins I just bought a lap steel. God only knows why. And then...there's all those drums and drum accessories. I need help.
