    Is there still a place for 100W amps?

    I play in an AC/DC tribute (Bon Scott era) and we use 100 watt heads, Marshall 4x12 cabs, a 2x15 bass cab, and our drums. For that style of music, our fans want to hear & feel what a hard rock tribute band sounds like in a club, not combo amps or amp modeling/IR being pumped in the P.A. Using a...

    Amps with underrated cleans

    I'd have to say the Reverend Kingsnake or Goblin has some underrated cleans for an all tube amp. Guitar George

    Let's hear it for 1990's American Standard Stratocasters!

    I had the same model guitar with the same Fender/Floyd Rose bridge in black. I traded it off towards a Fender American Deluxe Tele since it had a dent on the rear of the neck. Guitar George

    Dave Meniketti - Cause he deserve his own thread!

    That I know too well. I used to be the house bassist at a Sunday jam night at bar called The Hot Spot, a real nasty biker dive bar in Hayward, CA. Leonard was the bartender and we used to make prank phone calls to people as a joke. He'd give us free drinks. Unfortunately, the owner was involved...

    Speaker advice for 4x12 Marshall 1960A cab.

    This was my last set of speakers that I had in my Marshall 1960A 4x12 cab. It currently has 4 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers in it with a custom made 5 input jack plate on the rear...

    Help with this Hamer guitar

    That's definitely an import Hamer guitar that was made in South Korea, not a Hamer USA guitar. Everyone always needs a beater guitar in case you play some less desirable places. Looks like someone did some mods on it already. Maybe you can find some cheap aftermarket pickups that you can install...

    How cool / desirable is a Hamer Scepter?

    Do you have any pictures of the guitar that you're talking about?

    Reload a 900 1960a Cab?

    I tried this out for a few years with the Celestion Vintage 30 & G12T-75 speakers in an X pattern. I didn't like the way those speakers sounded different from each other when I first got my 1960A 4x12 cab. The Vintage 30 speakers sounded more dominant over the G12T-75 speakers which had more...

    Love Letter to the EMG 85

    I'm a big fan of the EMG 85 pickups! I have two on this guitar in the neck & bridge positions. The 85/SA/85 pickups are wired with a Super Switch and has the Knopfler mod in position #2. For some strange reason, I bought an older used EMG 85 neck pickup off of E-bay and it seems to have more...

    Stereo Tube Power-amp Below $1000?

    I own a Mesa Boogie 50/50. I have no issues with mine. It's a great sounding stereo tube power amp with a 50 watt (full power) or 15 watts (half power) per side in stereo. I recently sized down from a Mesa Boogie Strategy 400 power amp. What is this bad talk that you speak of? More internet BS...

    Reload a 900 1960a Cab?

    I bought a used Marshall JCM 900 1960A 4x12 cab used with only 2 Celestion G12T-75 speakers loaded in the cab and a nylon cab cover from Guitar Showcase about 10 years ago. I have loaded the cab with different Celestion speakers over the years. My cab currently is loaded with a quad of Celestion...

    Semi-Hollow for Rock/Hard Rock? Who's in?

    Count me in, mang! I use my 1997 Hamer USA Artist Custom semi-hollow body guitar in my AC/DC tribute. I call it my "Ted Nugent" guitar as a joke to my friends. When played at loud volumes, the air comes flying out of the f-hole, and can howl or feedback if I'm not quick on shutting off the...

    We need to talk more about Nile Rodgers...

    When I first heard of Chic when I was in my pre-teens, I thought it was ok. When I heard of Chic or any other type of R&B/funk/disco from that era as a teenager, I disliked it since I was in my hard rock/metal music phase of my life. A lot of guys on this forum are all about the blues, rock, or...

    What is the smoothest double locking, FR-style tremolo out there?

    I currently have the Schaller Floyd Rose licensed tremolo bridge (2), OFR (1), Kahler Spyder (1), and used to own the Kahler Steeler tremolo bridge. I always felt that the Kahler Steeler was well built, had more mass & sustain, and was a step above the OFR bridge that I have in my 1998 Fender...
