    Boogie Lonestar: UNRELIABLE??

    The LSS is my favorite amp of all time. I picked up a used combo as a backup. I am older now and would like to switch to a head. But now I'm going to be reluctant to sell the combos until I know new units are available.

    What's your favorite discontinued guitar?

    Musicman Axis Sport, MM-90. The Sport was discontinued long ago. The MM-90 a few years ago. These have been my main guitar for a long time. The MM-90 isn't much like a P-90. It has its own sound - Much more Fendery than P-90, but higher output. Axis Copper 1 by Oakley posted Feb 16, 2020...

    EVM12L - lighter-weight alternative?

    Here's a video comparing various versions of the EVM 12L. The latest incarnation really does sound very different from the earlier ones. And here's a bunch of Celestions compared to the latest EVM 12L. The Celestions all sound similar to each other and very different from the EVM...

    EVM12L - lighter-weight alternative?

    I tried the Classic Lead 80 in my Mark III. That cut about 7 pounds and sounded great - not the same as the EVM12-L, but just as good to my ear. Then I swapped in the neodymium Celestion Century, which gave a total weight loss of 12 pounds. It also sounded great. Not the same as the EVM or...
