    Fender Twin Reverb vs. Fender Deluxe Reverb

    When I played backline-contracted gigs, my preferred amp was a twin (I didn't have to lift it!). Using my gear locally, I ran a DR as long as it was mic'd. I depended on pedals for drive because one song would require a loud/clean lead and another would require a loud/OD lead. With a loud...

    Bye Bye GC

    Disappointing to see how many posts denigrate the OP for his age! WTF?! There are 8 GC stores in my area. Over the years, I've visited probably 7 and purchased from 3 or 4. I've bought all sorts of gear there from picks and strings to high-$ amps and guitars. I learned well what they were and...

    2006 R8 - Stock Pickups?

    Funny, I had forgotten this post and the answer to my question and posed the same question again in the Gibson forum and was answered with a link to my old post here. Perhaps it's because I have been playing through a Fractal Axe/Fx II and studio monitors at home a lot, but I've been able to...

    Speaker for a '67 Ampeg Jet

    I put in a new filter cap can a couple of years ago and yes, it made a big difference.

    Speaker for a '67 Ampeg Jet

    Looking to use my '67 Ampeg jet once in a while for a light jam amp in low volume situations. The old stock speaker (a Jensen) is weak and muddy. It's a rather dark-sounding dark amp too. I don't care about vintage vibe, I just want something clear, clean (I'll get OD from effects), and...

    Going Wireless

    A buddy has been gigging with the XVive for a year and only hit one venue where he had an issue which as it turned out was because he was right next to a wifi router. I just got a set and in my studio, I'm 3 feet from our wifi router yet it works perfectly. We A/B'd it with a 15' cable and if...

    2013 Gibson SG '61 Reissue w/Maestro Trem - What's a Fair Price?

    Having a tough time figuring a fair price. I don't see a lot of listings for these for sale or sold on ebay or reverb. Opinions from the SG group on FB range from "it's a steal" to "wouldn't pay over 1000".

    Where's the magic in a Tele?

    I've never been able to get comfortable with a Tele's shape or sound. I've heard players make them sound good but also many who make them sound shrill.

    2013 Gibson SG '61 Reissue w/Maestro Trem - What's a Fair Price?

    Mint condition. Owner bought it new and hung it on the wall. Original case and docs included. He wants $1400. Having a hard time finding others of the same model. Appreciate your advice, thanks.

    Anyone using GFS Minitrons using a coil cut option?

    Jury-rig a temp switch and try it. Your own ears will give you more information than words here would anyway.

    I don't believe in "left handed guitars"

    When I think back to first holding a guitar as a kid, I don't think it would have made a difference to me back then which hand I started fretting with. There's a natural righty bassist in a local Beatle trib that managed to re-learn playing lefty for the visuals. That must've taken some...

    '65 Ampeg Jet Humming

    True, but I always liked reverb to be post pre-amp.

    '65 Ampeg Jet Humming

    How hard would it be to add a reverb tank and circuit to this amp? A solid state circuit would be fine. I'm looking for "easy" Is it even feasible?

    Got a 3x20/450, 20/25 can from Fliptops and just installed it - hum gone, sounds great!

    '65 Ampeg Jet Humming

    Thanks, that's what l thought. The cord had already been updated when I got it. I'm not positive it Is a '65. I never did check the pot codes. I had one as a kid and this is exactly like it down to the compactron preamp tubes.

    '65 Ampeg Jet Humming

    ... and it used to know all the lyrics! (ta boom) I bought this 1965 Ampeg Jet J-12-A off evilbay years ago (well over 10). I only changed tubes and it worked well until recently. I hadn't turned it on in months and when I did last week there was a loud low-frequency hum. It does vary a bit...

    P-90 Guitars

    Just bought this "50s Tribute" Gibson SG. Forget the "tribute" ad copy, it's great and very inexpensive @ $570!

    Recommend me a guitar. Looking for something different.

    An inexpensive PRS SE II wound up being my main gigging axe for almost 5 years.

    Gibson 50's SG Tribute Incoming...

    Well, it's been a couple of weeks since I started this thread so I thought I'd post an update. After placing the order and waiting a week, I came home from work to find a Gibson box in the house. Only problem was, inside it was a 70s Tribute LP with "Dirty Fingers" humbuckers, definitely not...

    Gibson 50's SG Tribute Incoming...

    Interesting re. the finish though that doesn't concern me much. The irony or better stated inaccuracy of a "50's Tribute SG" didn't occur to me until you mentioned it though. That is funny! Again though, I don't care. I love the rounded neck profile on my LPR8. I also like the slimmer (but not...
