A couple months back I had a bad experience buying a CBG on eBay. Ended up sending it back. It was not at all playable. Last week found this on Etsy. It is amazing. The craftsmanship on it is incredible. I ran it into my little Blackstar Fly 3 and it sounded as good as it looks. This weekend I will run it through a bigger amp. It's a single coil that looks to me to be a Telecaster neck pickup.
Found custom built 16ohm attenuator online. I will do a post about it once i get it. It is recommended to use this for 65 watts or less to keep some headroom. I believe it is rated for up to 100 watts.
I bought this Kay Fuzztone new in about 1984 for about 20 dollars. I now see them going for over 300 dollars. Seems crazy. I have also seen other companies making copies of it. It's a simple circuit with a plastic housing and a rubber bottom cover. Made in Japan. I don't know if this was a re-release or leftovers from the 60's. I will have to find some history on it...
I almost forgot about these amazing picks I got from Japan. There is 3 sizes 1,2, and 3.5 mm thick. Beveled for easy playing. I think I will save the thicks one for use with the Hofner. They are from Hell Guitars and the picks are called Super Blacks.
