    PRS SE Hollowbody Standard. Made in China?

    And they reverse engineered a Ford F-150 and produce it totally on they're own, with a Chinese emblem as the 'Blue Oval' no less. Nothing more than, I'm trying to buy American Made stuff moving forward " I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin".

    "I am not ordering the FM3!"

    I was called for the AX8 on its initial run, but went Helix. I still have my KPA rack and finally got the KR, but the Helix does my heavy lifting the last 3 years.

    Incoming NGD: "Extra" Road Worn Telecaster

    Same here. I bought mine the first year they came out. I had Acme Guitar Works do a fret level, and the Fralin Unbucker/Blues with a Tonestyler 5 way. I have a crap load of guitars, and find myself playing the RW at most gigs lately. It's super light and resonant, and that Fralin Blues p/u kicks...

    Mesa California Tweed or Dr. Z Z-Lux?

    I had a Metropolitan and agree, but you couldn't do wrong with either the Mesa, or the Dr. Z as the OP asked.

    What is the best amp you have ever played??

    ++ I had a Metropolitan that was probably the best sounding amp I've ever played.

    Recommend some Tele pickups...don't hate me ;)

    I have a Frailin Unbucker in the neck, and a blues special neck. Tone shaper 5 way which can split the Bucker and change pot values. It kicks. Acme guitarworks did the work years ago, and its the guitar I grab the most. Road Worn Tele just like the one acme demos on YT Tim Lerch

    Who has moved on from the Kemper Profiler and Why?

    I hated updating and loading profiles. I always had problems with the stick, rig manager, etc. I moved on to Helix, which is far easier, IMO, to work with. I'm even afraid I'll never be able to get the new KPA editor to work on mine.

    Mesa Boogie Mark V — 10 years on

    I'm with you on this one. My MV Combo never failed to impress me, but I haven't used it in 5 years. The band I'm in went silent stage to FOH, and I've been using KPA, and Helix since. Also, I can't move that MV around very easily anymore at almost 69 years old. I'm thinking of putting in the...

    crate vintage club 50 head, need the lowdown!!

    I had one also, cream colored tolex with gold hardware. It kicked ass when I had it, but tastes change. I replaced it with a HRD 4X10.

    How many of you have gone all digital?

    Went full digital when the KPA came out. The band I'm in runs all direct to FOH, so this was a huge factor in going this route. I've since switched to the Helix and it fits perfectly to what I'm doing. Sound is consistent Nite after nite, no matter the venue.

    Im gonna have to haul a real Leslie again.

    I hauled a B3 and a Leslie up and down the East Coast to Key West, and all around the Midwest for 6 years in the 70's. That was the keyboard players rig with a Nova Bass Mod. He blew bass thru an Ampeg 300 watt head thru a cab with 2 JBL D140's, and a Kustom Blue Sparkle Head and 6-10 Cab for...
