    Thanks guys, I think I will try the new release when it comes out in a few days. I might need a bit of help figuring it out.

    ABS plumbing cement is very thick and goopy. I once tried some to repair an ABS part and it was very messy and softened much of the surrounding area. That being said, it might well be worth another...

    If you can get your hands on a centre drill such as https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/centre-drill-bits/4087938/, you'll find it helps a lot for starting holes. The small-diameter end is very short so...

    I would think a good epoxy- not 5-minute, but something slower that will penetrate better. If you could reinforce the hollow centre with some kind of pin or dowel that would help its chances of...

    'My electrical solvents are now all IPA-based and I haven't had problems with those.'

    Isopropyl alcohol- that took me a minute. I guess I had beer on my mind.

    I wonder if it is at least partly due to the temperature causing the plastic to become more brittle. I've seen heavy-duty electrical cleaner which seems similar to brake cleaner that sprays out...

    50/50 replaces two sections of the 40/40/40, and then an additional capacitor for the other 40. The 30 uF would be another cap.

    I'm not sure if you've already routed out the back, but if you just need a bit more room in the cavity, here is an easy way to enlarge it from the top. Take a 3/4" straight router bit- preferably 1"...

    If you have a ceramics/ pottery supplier nearby it could be worth a look. Some of them carry supplies for electric kilns such as nichrome wire and probably some hi-temp adhesives. They would likely...

    In response to the original question, I've never dealt with them directly.

    That would certainly work although the 100mA H.T. is a bit of overkill especially with Hammond's conservative ratings. There are a few more in that series that would also work there; 60mA is...

    For some reason I thought it said 2x 6V6, but you're right it's single ended with a tremolo. I recently learned that the same transformer is listed for champ and princeton, which surprised me. That...

    A tweed Deluxe or Princeton Reverb unit would probably work although without the schematic it is hard to know how the voltages would compare. Also the mounting orientation may differ.

    A coat of shellac would probably protect the stamp from the lacquer. It makes a great barrier coat for spraying anyways. Dipping may have different results with being exposed to the solvent for a...

    I agree that refinishing is not the way to go. The easiest thing might be to get another body, either prefinished or finished to your specs, and then rebuild the guitar with that. That way you will...

    Thanks Tony, the resistor was my first thought but I was worried about adding extra load to the winding. Maybe it's not such a concern.
