    Aluminum Necks? Aluminum Guitars? What Are Your Thoughts?

    fav. ecg tone ca. 2012 - steve brooks did it right (and bassist was also Al at the time). think that's just a jcm800, but rig has it's own thing going. think brooks uses LP customs now. opening for meshuggah's '22 worldwide tour btw -

    Gibson J-45 recommendations?

    if u go new, consider a torrified (baked) woods model. or a Sheryl Crow SJ (every one played was consistently great). my '18 J-45 Vintage model sounds like it's aged decades, out of the box - bought from Dave's, right when they were released:

    Any Sunn Coliseum PA Fans out There?

    saw the sunn studio p.a. in a couple reverb sales & online schematic - circuit topology looks basically the same. mv, less two KT88s. thx anibas.

    Any Sunn Coliseum PA Fans out There?

    knowing the difference four valves makes vs. two, in gain, volume, etc. - did Sunn make a 2 x KT-88 head (PA or otherwise)? ideally that would tame the volume a couple dB (thru the same cab). would the gain drop lose the Leslie factor ? (just talking the KT88/Mountain/LW tone, nothing else)...

    Music you like that no one else does

    think the itunes artist pg. called them 'perhaps the only truly alternative' alt. band of the 90s. dry, stripped approach, lo-fi, & completely orig. instrumental approach: 2-string slide bass, dry funk drums, baritone sax & Mark (rip) who has that sad lower voice thing. yeah it smells jazz, but...

    What song were you just playing - on your guitar?

    pulling this old thread, wondered if anyone here gets this song. spent last night working up the middle ('reverend') section. it's played in std., the begining D part is pretty easy to suss out. then the work begins - rutherford stays on the EAD (12-string) strings with some simple/clever stuff...

"here's a song we were all brainwashed with".. no pedals just amp, and just focused on his message. after "land of...

    AC30 (JMJ) - Carb, Varidrive or Zendrive 2 ?

    knew u were a JMJ owner (me too) - and am sure we agree on how fierce an AC30 Matt's design is. just trying to put into that next zone. thought Carb and POT were the go-to AC30 pumps. got to find something for leads but still in classic rock vein.

    AC30 (JMJ) - Carb, Varidrive or Zendrive 2 ?

    heard Paisley uses/used a ZD2 into Vox type circuits, amongst others. would u prefer a Carb, Varidrive or a Zendrive 2 (12AT7 loaded) into Vox type circuits? classic rock/alt-country stuff. TA!
