    I would check the nut first. Try putting some graphite in the nut slots. Sand the lead on a pencil and use that. If your tuning issues go away, that's your issue.

    I'm up to47 hours so far this week, and will likely hit 68, so I am a touch grouchy, I'll admit. Will probably hit the low 70s for the next couple or three weeks.

    Dread, that is due to the prefunding of the pensions up to 2075. That is why we have been bleeding money since 2009. You can look up why that is the case, but it's political in nature, therefore I...

    Sounds like your former postmaster doesn't know what he's talking about. If it doesn't get there, it's an addressing error or some sort of freak accident, like the contractor's truck caught fire.

    Media mail. For printed materials and data, but not retail games and movies. It's for people who would rather save pennies over priority.

    We've paid our own way since the Post Office Department became the United States Postal Service. There is no bottomless pot of money. And the above explanation states our situation pretty succinctly....

    I would concur that it is crippled by that speaker. It's a hifi speaker, not a guitar speaker. I would be interested in that amp, down the line.

    No, I think that is the stock speaker. I suspect that, in Guildian fashion, they used up stock, rather than paying for new. The RCAs didn't appear in any other model. Looking at the chassis (mid 50s)...

    That one tube looks like it was made the last week of 57. Guild used a lot of surplus in the mid fifties amps. I have a 40-T that was sold in the early Sixties, but had a cancap from 1955.

    I have a couple of amps that appear to have that chassis. Those amps have two 6L6s mounted on the chassis and the rectifier and can cap are bolted to the bottom of the cabinet. The power supply is...

    I'll have to look at it on the computer, but there were some bizarre amps coming out of Guild around 56. The RCA speaker is woefully underpowered for two 50L6s @8 watts, and should be downright...

    Guild also used a lot of Todd transformers, not sure of the timeframe on that, though. I am not surprised that it sounds good with the strat, the Franzes that Guild used are extremely bright. It's...

    Guild didn't use Magnavox as a transformer supplier. My guess is the original power transformer had to be replaced at some point, and they used whatever was handy. Should be fine though. You can use...
