dspellman's post should be a sticky.

The other myth is that nitro allows the wood to 'breathe'. No, no it doesn't. It is as effective a barrier to air and moisture as poly or any other car paint.

I would be inclined to try a Fender Jazzmaster Ultralight, if you can find one. Of the several small SS heads I have for jazz, this one will do post rock rather well too.

Poles are normally adjusted to even out the output from each individual string, a necessity (in my experience) on a guitar that is using jazz strings with a wound 3rd. The wound 3rd has a very small...
