? You sure about this. Balanced (differential) all the way through?

The SSL 9000 series we had in college featured a fully balanced signal path and no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path.


it looks like even some of their mixers that aren’t several hundred thousand dollars have a fully balanced signal path.

the SSL BiG SiX is only about $3000 at Sweetwater.

Well I'm no expert but I don't see it in the docs for the Big Six. I get SSL uses DC servo circuits to remove any electrolytic caps.

Spent a few minutes out in the shop this afternoon converting a Squier strat headstock to a 1950’s Tele shape.

 

The frets on the neck are pretty out of level so I might level them or replace with some stainless fret wire.

Roughed out on the bandsaw.

Starting to work in the transition with a rasp.

Almost done, I might go a little softer and deeper in the transition the way Tadeo Gomez did in the early 50’s.
