Topics I've Started

  1. Gold hardware on my Explorer

    07 October 2017 - 08:47 AM

    Ever since I saw the new natural Explorer 2018 with nickel hardware I've been thinking how much better it looks than the gold hardware on my 2008.

    The gold hardware never grew on me after all this time. I looked up if there is a way to remove the gold plating and there is, a simple buffing with Brasso takes it right off and exposes the nickel plating.

    I have a gold cover from a Classic '57 that I found locally for $20 and decided to give it a shot, it works! now I just need to make the decision, do I keep the gold hardware or polish it to nickel.

    What would be your preference on a natural Explorer, gold or nickel?

  2. Does anybody here watch the Johan Segeborn's YouTube channel?

    23 August 2017 - 08:47 PM

    Most likey has been posted before, but the search function is useless here on this forum.

    I've been watching his channel lately, what a fantastic collection of amps this guy have.

    Here's and example
  3. New attenuator day

    18 August 2017 - 10:40 AM

    Well, after all these years I finally decided to get an attenuator, my two largest amps have master volumes but I also have a few other small amps that do not.

    I ended up going with a Weber Mini Mass because of its features, 4,8,16 ohms that covers all my amps, I went with the 50 watt model since the highest output amp I have is my Mesa 5:25 that can crank 30 watts and since I do want to attenuate the output quite a bit is safer to have extra capacity on the attenuator.

    I also like the direct out output, I will be record through it and see how it sounds, it gets good reviews on this.

    The treble compensation switch works really well too. I am happy with it and essentially for the cost of a pedal I should have bought one long ago.

  4. London-Nashville direct flight coming in 2018

    10 August 2017 - 08:37 AM

    Some excitement going on in town since British Airways has made the official announcement that there will be a direct flight to London starting around may 2018.

    I think it is great not just for the obvious reasons but also as a way to get to Europe.

    This may not be big news to folks in large cities but it is a big deal around here.
  5. SongBirds Museum in Chattanooga

    28 July 2017 - 08:40 PM

    So I stopped at the new Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga on the way back from a Metallica concert in Atlanta.

    What a great collection of guitars, so many and so incredible.

    A bit pricey, there are several options but essentially you can have a self-guided experience for under $20 but, you get to see only one '59 Les Paul, the rest are part of the guided tour option which is right under $40 and takes you to the vault where there are some more bursts and other expensive stuff.

    I have been to other guitar/music museums but this is a really nice collection of guitars under one roof, simply incredible.

    I sneaked in a few pics when I was by myself.

    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.
