  1. New Amp Day

    19 July 2017 - 04:38 PM

    I picked up this head locally for a mere $300 essentially brand new including footswitch.

    The clean channel is really nice and the distortion channel is a scorcher but there are some easy mods that work great to tame the gain. I already swapped the tube on V1 for a Tung Sol.

    It is nice to finally have a nice head for my 4x10 Marshall Cab.

    First time trying Flickr, not sure if the pick will show.

  2. Shipping a guitar

    13 May 2017 - 07:58 PM

    I sold my Epiphone V and shipped it yesterday, no case, just the guitar, super light guitar too. Less than 7 pounds.

    Thankfully I had a box that fit right and a second box that didn't add but 3/4" of an inch all around.

    Nashville, TN to Anaheim, CA costs a mere $95 with UPS.

    Somebody forgot to tell these guys that gasoline is not $4 a gallon anymore.
  3. I dig this Les Paul review

    05 May 2017 - 09:10 AM

    This isn't new and may have been posted already a few times.

    A bit lengthy clip but I just love the sounds these guys get out of these guitars and the down to earth commentary.
  4. My first experience with Warmoth

    19 April 2017 - 04:02 PM

    I have been gasing for a 70's style Stratocaster for a while but I simply never saw all the specs I want together on a single guitar so I decided to put one together.

    I am slowly buying the parts and while I wanted to do it on the cheap as a fun project I also did not want to end up with a $400 Squier so I decided to use good quality components, not necessarily high end stuff but not compromise either.

    Instead of a cheaper Mighty Mite neck I opted for a Warmoth neck, and I am glad I did. It has the exact specs I wanted, 1 11/16" nut width, slim profile, 10-16 compound radius, 22 frets and 6150 fret wire (almost went with 6100 but they look huge, I chickened out, I was afraid of a too much metal feel and I am heavy-handed)

    Anyway, I am very pleased with the quality, this thing is cut with precision and perfectly sanded, $157 plus $20 shipping is hard to beat, great quality wood and fret work (I will round them a bit more with my trusty fret-end file but they are good as they came).

    Anyway I picked this up from their showcase, it was already made so, I simply picked the frets, no finish and no nut.

  5. Coiled Cables question

    23 February 2017 - 02:27 PM

    If I am looking at a 15' coiled instrument cable, what does that actually mean? what is approximate non-stretched length?

    Hi! I saw the Fender Champ head that you've built and I think it's an amazing job you did!!! I'd like to do the same for a Victoria 518-T (copy of a Fender Champ 57) Could you provide any help? Or even, would you want to build another that I would buy from you?

    Great. Unknwon is a great act and guitarist, not a lot of people get into him on this forum though. I plan to see him every time he is in town. I have seen him 3 times now.
