    Did anyone make mass-market Tonebenders?

    The RambleFX Twin Bender is outstanding. It sounds great next to my other *way* more expensive Tone Bender recreations from England. And you get two circuits in one!

    NPD - Williams MkI Tonebener

    It's not that I didn't like it, per se -- I just like the Williams MkII a bit more. The Williams feels a bit more alive and bloom-y, for lack of a better work.

    Winter NAMM 2021 Canceled :(

    <shrug> NAMM has only been (at best) artificially relevant for the past several years now.

    Why do people hate floyded les pauls?

    If something exists, there are people who hate it. Next question?

    Cutthroat Audio Down Brownie

    I should try this with a db meter at some point to be sure, but it *feels* like the DB is only doing around 100-102db in the room while still "clean" (no discernible breakup). That's not all that much. I mean, if you're in an apartment, that'll get the cops to your door real fkn fast, but I...

    Come on, Guitar Center!

    You don’t have anything better to do than post pictures of vaguely gross (old) pedals from GC’s used listings?

    NPD - Williams MkI Tonebener

    The Williams Tone Benders compare well or even favorably to some of the VERY expensive recreations from the higher-profile builders in England, ime. For example, I prefer his MkII over a DAM OC84 that I’ve tried. Nick does outstanding work.

    Do most gigging players sweat their home gear all that much?

    I play loud af through high-wattage tube amps at home and it fkn rules. If you can, and you’re not a thousand years old, why wouldn’t you?

    P90s: Staple vs Pole?

    Pole in the bridge, staple in the neck. Profit.

    What happened to all these pedal builders????

    I’ve mostly stopped building (for sale) because I don’t really *want* to anymore, if I’m being honest. It takes me 5-6 hours to build a pedal from scratch. I sell them for $150, give or take. That, minus supply cost, and it becomes... well, time is the most valuable thing in the world, right...

    Questions for SG Lovers/Experts

    Neck sizes can vary greatly with different SG models, including those in the OP. So, if that’s important to you (it sure is to me), it pays to become acquainted with the specs over the years.

    Peavey 6505/5150 questions...

    Either one. Both sound great, ime. The 50w is significantly less expensive on the used market, but obviously you’ll have a bit more headroom on the green channel with the 100w version. The 50w is still plenty loud, though.

    Peavey 6505/5150 questions...

    I would get a Fender/EVH 5153. The clean channel on that amp rules and it sounds great with pedals.

    Down Brownie - Cut Throat Audio

    It's not like it's an entirely different an amp with single coils. My DB sounds amazing with both my Les Paul and my Telecaster.

    Celestion Gold or Scumback S75-PVC 65 watt?

    The S75 PVC is one of my all-time favorite speakers. The Celestion Gold, on the other hand... Well, I’ve just never heard one that sounded good to me. It’s very dark and sort of confusing/inarticulate in the mids and lower-mids, imo.

    Tuning: how stable is stable?

    Even on my extremely stable Telecasters I have to fine-tune after every 10-15 minutes of playing/practice (generally with a fair amount of bending). I’m fairly sensitive in that regard, however, and I can hear when a particular string is a few cents off. I think most people don’t notice that...

    Poll: Do you perform regular maintenance on your guitars...???

    The OP is either insane or an exquisite troll. I have moderate, clinically-diagnosed OCD, and much of that seems ridiculous even to me. I also do all my own maintenance and cleaning, but never once have I done a “full tear-down” on a brand new guitar to <checks notes> wax the screws. Like... wat?

    Gibson Les Paul VOS R9 vs R0 is the any difference in tone ?

    There are differences in tone between individual R9s and R0s, but not that you could broadly apply across the entire range(s).

    Your guitar has been listed in the emporium for 2 years now…

    Applying Occam’s Razor in this case suggests to me that a lot of people are just kinda dumb. Many things that I observe in other people would suggest that, actually.
