    Should the Stones have finally broken up after the death of Charlie Watts?

    Saw them in St. Louis last night, it was wonderful. They also did a great tribute to Charlie

    NGD! Les Paul Reissue

    My fiancé kept urging me “get the Goldtop. They look so classy”.

    NGD! Les Paul Reissue

    Absolutely. The high E is the only string that touches the back of the bridge when I have the tailpiece all the way down (the way I prefer). But still, I perceive a looser string tension with top wrapping.

    Right! Lots of wave. Very 3D too!

    NGD! Les Paul Reissue

    Arrived 2 weeks ago….have been playing it everyday and have been through 3 gigs with it so far. Absolutely loving it! My only other guitar with humbuckers has a trem along with hot pickups, so this is quite a different beast. It is a bright guitar…lots of bite with a huge amount of sustain. The...

    Wanting a new delay pedal; All recommendations welcome!

    Update: I didn’t get around to buying one yet. I did however receive an MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe for my birthday a few weeks ago. This wasn’t a pedal I was really considering, but it does sound good. I especially like the normal/bright options and the tap tempo. Still tweaking and figuring out the...

    Buyer on Reverb claims his new pickup is broken

    I politely told him "sorry, there's nothing I can do at this point since a month a passed and my policy is 7 days." He comes back saying "I've been on the road a lot, and I had to wait for the lacquer to dry on the guitar...30 day warranty is pretty standard, but if that's how you roll I'll...

    Buyer on Reverb claims his new pickup is broken

    Just checked in with Reverb support and they agree that it's too far past the delivery and they cannot help, nor am I obligated to provide a refund. Guess I'll tell this guy "Sorry, Bud"

    Buyer on Reverb claims his new pickup is broken

    So, a month ago I sold a set of strat pickups on Reverb. They worked perfectly the last I used them. The buyer messaged me this morning saying he finally got around to installing them, and one of the pickups is dead; and he claims upon further inspection he sees that the wire is broken. I...

    The best of the best of the best lines in songs, EVER

    Throw down a rope from heaven And lead the flock to water. The man in the middle would have you think that you have no other choice but to wonder in the wilderness of all the upturned faces. If you stop and listen long enough you will hear your own small voice.

    Wanting a new delay pedal; All recommendations welcome!

    At this point, I’m kind of leaning towards the Boss DD-200. The TC Alter Ego v4 is something that looks cool but it doesn’t seem to get a lot of praise here.

    Wanting a new delay pedal; All recommendations welcome!

    I really appreciate the responses thus far! I had some time this evening to watch some demo vids and do some research. So far I really like: -El Cap - seen it on boards for years and haven’t ever heard a bad thing about it, really. I wasn’t aware it has secondary functions. Only thing that...
