Hi forum minds! What will happen during the anticipated inflation? Money will loose its value, but what about collectable guitars, basses and other expensive vintage stuff? Any ideas?

What’s the best feeling, most effortless playing Electric you’ve ever played?

  • 20,787
  • 373

I’ve owned a fair amount of instruments ranging in price from entry level mass production to upper tier boutique. And been fortunate to have played some beautiful guitars featuring brilliant detailed craftsmanship.
It seems like more often than not around here what people want to know or talk about is tone. I’m into that for sure.. But over the years, and many, many...

Some straight talk about the future of tube amps

  • 39,693
  • 930
First, let me say that tube amps sound great and they are a joy to own if you have the space to play them or have the equipment to quieten them down. But, I believe tube amps won’t last for much longer. I don’t believe they will go extinct, but I do believe the market will vastly shrink within a decade or so. A lot of amp manufacturers complain about tube and component shortages. I don’t know if this will ever improve, but it has definitely made amps more expensive and more difficult to...

Tour Box Threads

From the beginning of TGP, we've always encouraged builders to have tour boxes. Given the current situation in the world and the distress it has placed on everyone and in particular, small builders, we wanted to cultivate and support builders that want to create "Tour Boxes".

To do that, we've created a prefix for manufacturers to use, called (no surprise) "Tour Box". While TGP takes no responsibility for conducting or managing Tour Boxes (that's up the manufacturer) we do want to see...

Most unique 90’s guitar tone

  • 46,725

I can’t think of a more rich, saturated, yet clear recorded guitar tone from the 90’s that isn’t Dean DeLeo’s. I have no idea how he did it, but damn.

If you could only have one...

So say you're trying to decide between getting a Les Paul, 335, or an SG. You have a choice of keeping the best Les Paul you've ever heard and played, the best 335 you've ever heard and played, or the best SG you've ever heard and played. Which would you choose and why? And no, you can't afford all three in this case. :p

Martin electrics?

Does anyone have, or at least remember having, one of those Martin electric guitars from the 1960s? Any love for them?

I'm not thinking of the Frankenstein versions of their acoustics with added pickups and knobs, but the true electrics, thin line hollow body F series or GTs. I knew a kid who had one (not sure which model) when I was in high school, and I remember playing it and thinking it was pretty good, but that was a long time ago. Martin also made amps, or at least had their name on...

Favorite Plexi Clones under 50w?

  • 26,478
  • 117
Recently I posted about the best 2x12 cabs to pair w a Marshall super lead head. I’ve been playing around w the 20w reissue and a 100w plexi reissue of late. The 20 has the vintage sounds and tones and is fantastic but is missing some low end punch and mids, understandably.

been reading up on the clones: Germino 35, Metropoulos, Christine, etc.

What are some of your favorite plexi clones in the 50w and less range?

We’re writing to let you know that on October 27, our payment processing fee will increase to 3.19% of the transaction + $0.49 per transaction.
Why is this happening?
Credit card companies have increased the fees they charge Reverb. While we’ve kept our payment processing fee the same for the past 10 years, it’s become increasingly more expensive to process payments.

Cover band song selection… I just don’t get it?

  • 13,283
  • 392
I responded to a CL looking for a guitar player and asked to view the set list. I just don’t understand why players/musicians continue to pick the same old passe cover band songs over and over again.

The Stones have an enormous catalog, why does every bar band do Honky Tonk?

Tom Petty has some fantastic songs and huge radio hits that are Not Last Dance With Mary Jane.

Don’t even get me started with 8675309.

I know all three of these songs from my past and could refresh them in a matter...

Guitarists you wish more people knew

We all can probably think of players that haven't made it into the mainstream. This thread isn't about them. I am talking about great players that you love to listen to but not a lot of other players seem to know about. My submission to this would be Lance Lopez. Texas guitar player who just rips. Strat tone to die for. Les Paul in spades. Great singer to boot.
