    What are your thoughts on the Gretsch Penguin?

    I had a Vintage Select one for a while, but eventually moved it on. I loved the sound of the TV Jones pickups. The construction of the guitar was perfect in every way, and it played itself literally. It was resonant and fairly loud acoustic. Why did I move it on? The neck. Mine was just huge...

    With so many good sounding pedals, have you made a 2nd pedal board?

    In my defence, one is for particular sounds I need for a music project/band I am in, and the other is just to play along to my favourite records.

    Talk me out of selling my 2000s EHX DMM.

    Put it this way, if you do sell it and regret it a year on, you will definitely pay more to get another. This happened to me years and years ago, but with a silver Klon Centaur. Thought I was done using it as I was more about plugging in straight to a Tweed Deluxe which gave me all the OD in...

    How many dirt pedals is "normal" on a board?

    I have two boards at the moment. One is for playing along to my favourite records, and the other is designed solely for use in the band that I am in, writing original music. The "Original Board" has two dirt pedals: a Timmy and a BJFE EGDM. The Timmy is my low gain sound, the EGDM stacks into...

    EBS patch cable reliability?

    I have a few of the standard ones...about maybe 15 of them, and one went bad just being on my board, with no stress or moving around...a bit disappointing, but the rest of them have been a-ok. I bought all of them at the same time, and the breakdown occurred about a month and a bit in.

    P90s: Staple vs Pole?

    Staples are very powerful pickups, mine is waaaay louder than the P90 on my bridge. I have the staple's magnets way down to balance it with the P90.

    I’ve rediscovered the SG

    I love three pickup SG Customs...if you want to lower the middle pickup a bit further, you could swap the neck pickup ring with the middle one, this will give you a bit more room. :cool:
