    Slash UYI tour MIAB

    I had a Jackhammer and it was maybe the worst pedal I ever owned.

    Guitar tuning issues

    Can you move up to 10s? I notice more reliable tuning with heavier strings. They tend to hold up to abuse a bit more.

    Does this ‘86 Fender 57 reissue seem right to you?

    It’s hard to show in photos but those are not nitro checking cracks - they are bubbled lines that come up off the surface - so there’s a raised texture to them, unlike typical checking.

    Does this ‘86 Fender 57 reissue seem right to you?

    The body is legit but that’s black poly paint over CAR nitro. Fender was indeed using nitro on their vintage 57 reissue series out of the Corona plant.

    Does this ‘86 Fender 57 reissue seem right to you?

    I’ve got some additional pics - it seems to me that it’s a nice 86 but was refinished at some point with poly.

    Does this ‘86 Fender 57 reissue seem right to you?

    Good question - this seems like a Fullerton curve to me.

    Does this ‘86 Fender 57 reissue seem right to you?

    Finally found one of these Corona 57 reissues - I was excited about the nitro paint but does this seem right? I don’t know if a refin situation is happening here or if it’s a completely wrong body - no date codes to be seen.

    Pedal Steel- My nine year old is interested in learning. HELP!

    I respectfully disagree with the mandolin/guitar analogy. If you are enjoying your pedal steel experience and never got into the bend and muting aspects of lap, it sounds like you’ve found a better instrument match for your style.:beer

    Pedal Steel- My nine year old is interested in learning. HELP!

    But you have worked on your pitch, your right-hand muting, and if you got into behind-bar bends or hand levers - those basic raises are at least a preview. Sure, the string spacing is different and the bar is a whole different type, but if you’re going from open E lap to E9 steel, there’s at...

    Pedal Steel- My nine year old is interested in learning. HELP!

    As previously said, there is a big advantage to starting on lap steel. When you start on pedal steel you’ll quickly realize you suck at all four limbs - fingerpicks, bar technique, the pedals, and the volume bit. It can be overwhelming. Lap at least gets you going on the bar and the hand...

    Discounts on New Gear.

    The GC haggling ability went away around 2009/2010. There used to be “deals” that you could always count on: A Hot Rod Deville for 600 after tax, a Line6 DL4 for 200 after tax, etc. Those days are gone. They switched to a standard Best Buy type store model.

    JHS Pedals - is it just me?

    I don't know how constructive a thread with this title could ever hope to be. The Colour Box is an outstanding pedal. If your company makes even one pedal as special as that, what more do you need? Any pedal company with a LARGE line of pedals is bound to have a few that seem redundant or typical.

    real deal boss vb-2 replacement?

    I've had the Malekko for a long time and really like it - but if Boss made a Waza reissue it would KILL.

    Replacing way huge echo puss

    The Mad Prof Deep Blue Delay (actually digital) and the new Boss DM-2W are both great. They won't mess your signal either.

    Is this a fuzz? How can I get this solo tone?

    TGP won't let me link to 2:06. That's where it starts.

    Dirt Like Eternity Burst?

    I miss my Roadhouse - I had that thing for years. I even convinced a few friends to buy them - they could hear the difference right away. It kills any tubescreamer or Fulldrive. It's a very nice overdrive with a few actually usable settings. The Glass knob is great.

    I have one and I love it.
