So a little over a year ago on a day much like today, I posted an impulsive thread on a musician's forum, much like this one. In this thread, I challenged a fellow forumite, MISTER NOBODY, not expecting anything to really come of it, to a gear building challenge.

I said to him, "I'll build you an amp if you build me a guitar. And neither of us will know what the other is building until we receive it and open the box". To my surprise, he accepted this challenge and we agreed on a couple of basic terms and we each started building!

The building process seemed to go on forever. We posted about it alomst every day, teasing one another with vague tidbits about what we were concockting for the other. It was much fun, and other forumites took part in the anticipation as well. I do admit sometimes I wondered if I would just be sending off a nice custom amp to some stranger somewhere that never had any intention of sending his part of the deal, but worry proved to be completely unnecessary.

The fine day came where we both agreed to ship on that day. We exchanged tracking numbers and waited. ... an absolutely blind trade, amongst a couple of random internet strangers, joined only by a thin piece of internet media.




Here's what I had sent him.. which is a copy of a Supro Thunderbolt circuit, made with NOS 6L6's and transformers from a '67 Bandmaster.

And here's what I received from the MISTER NOBODY:

The guitar looks great, the amp looks too good. If the guitar sounds/plays great, then the deal is good. Both items have mojo. Very cool idea.

Awesome gear and real cool story. I love my parts-Esquire (and I should probably play my Thunderbolt more). What kind of pickup is in the guitar?

About the guitar:

This not a "parts guitar". Everything was made and fitted by hand.

It is a two piece (center seam) alder body, maple neck/rosewood fingerboard, with Kluson tuners, Dunlop 6105 frets,and an Earvana nut. The bridge is ferrous material (cause it sounds better) and has compensated brass saddles, and the pickguard is three layer (white/black/white) made from, well, plastic. The pickup was custom wound by my good friend Rob Timmons at Arcane Pickups, and is basically a '51 Broadcaster pickup with a twist. The twist is that is slightly overwound at 7.3k, and it has Alinico V magnets on the E, A, and D strings, and Alinico III magnets on the G, B, and E strings. The concept is that the low strings will be focused and have a bit of twang, yet still be full (because of the over winding), and the high strings will be sweeter because of the softer magnets. The switching is standard Esquire except I put a .47 cap on the tone pot so it would roll off a lot and get pretty dark, and rather than the customary .5 or .47 cap on the fixed tone (position 3), I put a .22 cap so the guitar wouldn't be so dark in the fixed tone position. I did add a little something special to the guitar though...

Besides the dirty filthy stuff I wrote on the guitar (you know this had to be done) then painted over, not to mention the stuff that bled through the paint in the cavities, I added a two function circuit to the instrument that is activated by push/pull switches on the pots and has LEDs on the control plate that indicate when one or the other, or both circuits are active. What this circuit does is...

Absolutely nothing! That's right nothing. It's a "producer circuit". I put a 9v battery under the pickguard and wired it to the switches and LEDs only, the switches only turn the LEDs on and off, and I didn't say a word about it. Mort and his buddy went on for a week or more about the different sounds they were getting out of the instrument and how cool it was, all the while the LED/switching circuit was totally and completely discrete. I sat back and laughed my ass off along with the other guys on the forum that I told about it via PM :D

I finally let the cat out of the bag about a week or so later, and we had a laugh, but Morts buddy still proclaimed up and down that he could hear a difference.

Did not mean to imply it was, just stating mine is. Looks like you did a great job with it. :thu:

I didn't take it that way. I was just being specific as there are a lot of parts-o-casters out there.

Yeah, I suppose the producer circuit was an itsy bitsy tiny bit mean, but from the very first first "I know what I'll do!!!" moment, it was always meant to be funny and I knew Mort could take it. And hey, he did the same thing do me. He wired the volume pot backwards, so the further clockwise you turn it, the softer the amp gets till the knob is fully up, and the amp is fully, well, not up. He called it a STFU knob. The more you turn the amp up the more you STFU. :D...

...then he painted the damn thing pink (not that I mind in the least), but hey, I painted his guitar pink so...

Mort proved himself to be trustworthy even before he threw down the gauntlet, so it didn't take but a short time before I agreed to the challenge. I think the whole thing went down really well and both of us are happy with what we built for each other. That amp sounds f-ing great and I love it, and the Esquire came out really good. Great sounding and a very very good player. It was one I would have kept for myself, producer switches and all.

Mort and I have continued to stay in touch, harassing each other by phone and text because we live on opposite coasts, but it's been good. I've made a good connection, and I have his address so I can go to his house and steal his lawn mower.

I want to see a picture of the bad words before the guitar was painted.

This is unbelievably cool. I would love an Esquire, especially with the trad 5 screw guard. It's beautiful.

Producer circuit is an awesome dig. Harmless prank for a great story. Great works produced by both parties. Kind of people we need on GAB :thu:

Here is what I took pics of. The rest of the evil is under the finish on the body in pencil so it wouldn't bleed through. I even printed out the pics I took along the way, and made a cute little 4" x 6" photo album and sent it with the guitar just for grins. Mort made an un-boxing video too. I'd say it's better than any of Phil O'Keefs un-boxing videos by far :D

As a matter of fact, he sent me a whole little photo album to go with it.


Here's a cell phone pic of one of the photos :D

Wait, is the guitar pink? The HK guitar strap had me thinking it was, but after showing my daughter the picture of the guitar, she was like, "Well, y'know how you're color blind . . ." :mad:

I have one of those Squier Hello Kitty guitars in pink which likely explains my attraction to this Esquire. But if it isn't pink . . .

And that amp . . . I was checking out the schematic, and what a simple, to-the-point amp it is. It looks like a single gain stage that is immediately fed into the phase inverter. The phase inverter is not what I'm accustomed to seeing, or it is just drawn differently than what I'm accustomed to - is it a long-tailed phase inverter? It doesn't seem like there's much gain on tap. Does one have to have a pretty high-output guitar for the amp to go into overdrive? Can it "give up the goods" with vintage-styled Fender single coils?

And, one of them is in California? Which, and where in California?

Yeah, the guitar is pink, and I sent the Hello Kitty strap along as part of the fun.

The amp is fantastic sounding, has plenty of gain, but of course you kinda have to wind it up to get there. It'll get from clean as can be to spanky, to aggressive/crunch, and beyond, and with a clean boost in front of the amp (I use an XTS Pegasus Boost set between 10 & 11 o'clock on the knob) it brings the rawk. It's a man's amp, so you can't just be some ham-fisted dope with it. You get quite a lot out of it with just your fingers and the volume knob on the guitar. It's very dynamic and touch sensitive. I have a 12au7 in V1 and a 12ax7 in V2 and the amp seems to like it so...

It is the amp that resides in Southern California. The guitar is on the East Coast.

fantastic peoples up in here and as both an owner of a Pittman and a Mortatone I can say that is a high stakes trading , no fucking around at all in that deal . I've heard that amp at the Casa Slagle and it's sweet and loud !

So, what inspired you guys to do a round 2? Don't tell me you sold the producer switch Esquire! :mad:

Edit: Does the Esquire have a Pittman headstock or a traditional Fender shape?

I don’t recall what exactly prompted the 2nd trade. Now we’re gonna do a 3rd trade and I’m planning on pumping him up on every forum and group I go to to help get more people interested in his guitars.

Fender shape and Fender logo. I still have it. My Slagle collection will go from 2 to 4 this year :dance:

What other forums you on?

I have a few build threads for my new Pittman going now on Rig Talk and The Gear Page. Blasting my Insta, FB and all that.

A couple of bass forums, the open Jam, Facebook groups, etc. I wish TGP wasn’t so “stick in the ass” but it is what it is I guess.
