  1. Read this: http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/counterfeit-guitar-bust-708/
  2. I wonder how your friend would feel if you told him his wife wasn't sexy enough, or looked cheap?
  3. Ask your other band mates to compare your tone to his, then offer to trade gear for a set and kick his behind all over again.
  4. Didn't mean to touch hot spots, but YOU should try finding tools to fit a rare (and break-down prone) British sports car in muscle-car crazy middle America in the 60's on a Saturday night 30 miles from home, and late for a date! You might appreciate my less-than-fond memories just a bit more. Of course, the same thing happened with various BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons and Harleys in later years, but by then I had learned to simply find a bar, make a courtesy call to cancel the date and try to find someone cute and cuddly to put me up and keep me warm through the night.
  5. Try an Electro-Harmonix Nano Reverb pedal. If you've got some bucks left, the Vox Tonelab LE or SE or ST, or whatever the current model name, works a treat with the Night Train.
  6. A friend from my young adulthood drove an Alpine and every roadtrip with him was an adventure. We broke down more than half of the time we took it 20+ miles from home. Everything was tooled to Wentworth standard, an entirely British specification that was somewhere between metric and SAE, for the most part, but had some wrench (excuse me, spanner) sizes that weren't even CLOSE to anything else. Taking the toolbox with us was out because it was too big to fit in the boot (that's the trunk) so we usually wound up calling a friend with a pickup to come tow us home. Thanks for the senior memory moment!
  7. My Night Train takes pedals through the front end just fine. You can even get pretty deep into metal tones with careful adjustment of an OD and a FUZZ pedal back to back. Main claim to fame for me is that chimey clean tone that just rings out. I re-tubed for a little more clean headroom and just turning it on turns me on. Sometimes I just sit and run through chord charts one key at a time because the sound is so lush and pretty, especially when you play through the major and minor 7ths and on into some 9ths and 13ths.
  8. Go to youtube.com, watch re-runs of "Hee-Haw". Your set list will develop overnight.
  9. The GC website seems to list what I would call comparable Epi LPs (flamed top) between $350-$399. I think that's typically GC, too much money. Try asking $350 and take $300 if you can get it.
  10. I would try a blow dryer to soften the plastic bag and roll off with finger or thumb - or maybe try the silly putty trick after warming up the plastic. Sounds like a good trick to me, thanks for sharing it.
  11. Remove the feet, put them in a small plastic bag, seal the bag and velcro it to the inside of the pedal board lid. At least, that's what I did.
  12. OK, it looks like a block ES-335 with a (standard) varitone (and without f-holes).
  13. The P-94 is cleaner and has more treble, with less mid-range than a humbucker, while having more bass than a P-90.
