You have a good set up as is
i have the V22 as well - its a great amp
a closed cab 2x12 for the V22
the V22 is awesome by itself but can be a total monster with a bigger cabinet (specifically a closed back cabinet)
that's how i've used mine for the last several years
remember: these are ALL OPEN BACK CABS
i think we would have way different results if they were all closed back
the Vintage does sound like a million bucks. -hard to believe the only difference is the box
I'm looking to get a new vox head
I've never played an AC15
i had the AC30cc2x years ago and it was awesome (but combo = too heavy)
NOT looking to get another combo
i was thinking of getting the AC30c head but it's $900 and i'm not sure i need that power
if i get the AC15, it would mainly be...
RadioShack and Homedepot will have cheaper soldering irons that work fine just for pickup changes
That's how EVERYBODY gets started -a cheap soldering iron
the majority of my work has been with cheap equipment sitting on my floor (not even a workbench)
watch some videos on youtube on how to...
the metal zone sounds great
people bash it because it's "trendy" to bash it on TGP
people say it sounds like s#it but i can make it sound like a million bucks
-what does that say about me and you (TGP)?
I had an SD18 head and I had the same experience as the OP
I thought it was supposed to be a rockin' amp but it was totally lame
The guy that bought it from me called complaining about the same thing: "I thought these amps were supposed to rock?"
I used that money for an American 6505+
ive been using 12-54 w/ a plain 3rd and it's been working out pretty good in D standard
I like 12-56 better but the 3rd is wound and I can't bend it like a plain string
you can use whatever but if you like string tension, then go big
if not, then maybe 11-49 should work for mere mortals with...
i recently rebuilt an LTD EC-1000 deluxe
they come stock with EMGs which i didn't like and the gold hardware fades fast
so i put in all new chrome hardware, passive pickups, new pots, toggle, jack, everything
..i even had to pull the bridge stud out to get it grounded
(active guitars don't come...
I can confirm that Johnnys House of Guitars was a real place on Seminole Blvd and that Florida is hot and muggy place.
This leads me to believe that the entire story is 100% true!
I don't know
there are lots of extremely good female artists and lots of terrible ones too (beyonce!)
I love Karen Carpenter
Karen O YYY
Smoke Green is a real nice color
I painted a warmoth strat Gorilla Vanilla
it turned out great
some colors will be easier to work with than others
do your homework if you want to get it right
and be VERY patient
protect yourself from the nitro spray and avoid humidity
I had a Superdrive18 head that I thought would be a good sounding high gain head
the guy who bought it from me thought the same thing
..and we used good closed back cabs with good speakers
it really didn't deliver like TGP fans and the descriptions say it would
I would honestly...
I have one
it has more bass and more highs than the regular, so the EQ is kind of flat vs mid hump
I think it has barely more gain
it's a good od and boost
I use it to boost 6505+ and mesa mini rec
I guess it's fairly new and everyone already has an OD808, which is probably why they're not as...
this is exactly why I now do EVERYTHING myself
if I can't do it, i'll learn how to do it and spend as much money and time as I need to get it right
pickups, pots, wiring, setups, nuts, frets, paint, tuners, amp parts, tubes, bias, replacement parts, everything
I trust nobody because everyone's...
