    Is this Jim Marshalls signature?

    Nope, the inspection sig isn’t his. The stuff he signed is quite obvious, no way to mistake it :) I’ve had a ‘76 head box and a earlier ‘70’s cabinet signed Plexi

    Intonation the right way?

    I do the open string then fretted 12 and the Harmonic at the 12th also in that order ...when all those 3 readings are on or very close that’s what I go with .... plexi

    tele bridge pickup, classic rock ONLY

    Fender Nocaster I’ve tried about half the above mentioned pickups and the Nocaster is the one for me .... It covers all the classic rock stuff so good, from light overdrive to rock n roll harder style plexi

    Did Fender change the way they make 351 picks?

    Get the new Martin celluloid picks .....that’s the closest to the old fenders/ D Andrea in tone and feel. They are a tad thicker in the medium gauge also..... To me the new fender picks are brittle sounding and that’s what caused me to seek out better sounding and feeling versions Plexi

    Who is the best vintage Fender re-tweed guy?

    Gregg Hopkins Vintage Amp Restoration in St. Louis You’d be hard pressed to find a better guy ..... He’s got a well known famous client list, and he’s great for the average joes also plexi

    Worst guitar product you remember buying?

    Gas can amp ....what was I thinking EH nano clone...worst pedal ever Any overdrive by Wampler ...I can’t figure it out but I just don’t seem to get along with Wamplers EQ in his pedals .....any other overdrive I can make work with no problems .. plexi

    Cheap Trick Covers "Rebel Rebel"

    I’m a lifelong huge fan, but this track is a amateur hour effort ...egads bad mix, clashing guitar mess covering every inch with no breathing room.....flat and uninspiring ... Plexi

    1981 TS9 JRC2043DD

    Nope not in my opinion ...I had a early 81 TS9 that has that chip and it sounds great ....even next to a few 83 9’s with the good chips :) plexi

    Some thoughts and advice on '65 Princeton Reverb Reissue FSR ('Chilewich')

    Put a old RCA in v1 slot those stock preamp tubes in the 65 reissue is where a lot of that bright/ harshness happens.... plexi

    What year was this Marshall 1960A Cab made?

    Later 70’s small check speakers are replacements as is the wiring harness...... But it prolly sounds killer plexi

    Takamine G series. Lag Tramontane. Couple of questions.

    I don’t know anything about Lag.... but I do know the Tak stuff... All the Taks play great with very low action, very comparable to playing a electric guitar ....some of the cheaper models with the cheaper pickup systems use shims that are already under the bridge ......easy to remove to lower...

    Played some Marshalls today. Marshall players please give thoughts

    Marshall does a huge disservice by biasing the DSL 40 poorly....get that bias fixed and all the harsh buzzy nonsense goes away ....a speaker upgrade can also really make the amp worth owning plexi

    Norm's is apparently in trouble...

    Back in the day we would have called this whole thing “tacky” but I guess “tone deaf” is the word all the kool kids use now ..... I do have empathy for Norm that he can’t be in his business ...but Norm has plenty of dough to retire fine and high dollars in inventory and his collection that...
