    If you could spend 5 minutes playing a famous player's guitar which one would it be?

    Rory’s Strat or Jimmy’s Les Paul. Ive listened to those two guitars for years and have always wondered if they are really all that special. I would also like to play Jimi’s favorite Strat.

    Songs that are a Pain in The Ass to remember the arrangement ?

    I read the thread and immediately thought of Moonchild by Rory Gallagher. And when I see the OP I was surprised anyone knew that song. So I second Moonchild lol.

    Morgan AC20 Deluxe Discontinued?

    Thanks! I have noticed that, but thought it was due to a microphonic EF86. Now I can enjoy the ghost and not get po’ed at the tube lol.

    Is there a pedal out there that you've always wanted, but couldn't bring yourself to spend for?

    I’ve wanted a Sunlion by Analogman for 15 years or more. I just can’t get past the price.

    What do you consider to be Jeff Beck's finest work?

    I’m going to say There and Back. It a bit more rock than Wired and Blow by Blow so it seems to get overlooked.

    You have to make do with one pedal; what's yours?

    I prefer using a treble booster so that would be my choice. Swart Atomic Boost or Arcane Analog Skullmaster depending on the amp.

    How do you get your lead tone?!?!

    I use a treble booster so rhythm is guitar on 4-7 and fat lead guitar is on 10.

    Amp made popping, scratchy noise, then blew fuse. What’s going on?

    When mine did that a power tube went bad.

    A Ten Way Stratocaster Switch.

    10 ways are fantastic. I’ve had them in all my Strats for about 4 years now so the switch holds up. It’s great having the series sounds to hit something fatter with a bit more output. Especially when you don’t have your amp and you get stuck with a bright one.

    10-way switch for a Strat....I'm in love...

    I’ve got 10 way switches in all my Strats. Adding all the series sounds really give a wide range of useable sounds.

    Anyone else like to build stuff? Amp stand build.

    Very nice! You sure can get compact with that set up.

    Arthritis. The musicians demon.

    I’m also 58 and in the same boat as the OP. I have switched to lighter strings on some guitars and am working on slide playing on the few I left with 10s on them. This way I can still play the music I like and try and learn something new with the slide.

    How many watts do YOU need?

    My Swart ASTPro is about 18 Watts and it seems about perfect for me. I do really like my two 30 Watt amps as well in the Morgan AC40 deluxe and Tungsten Buckwheat. They have plenty of headroom, but you can get the amps into the zone without being too loud. I love the power scaling on the Morgan.

    Preference: Newer guitar with modern appointments or vintage?

    I prefer modern frets on vintage style instruments. I don’t care about radius of the fretboard, but I do prefer the modern EVO gold frets for easier bending. I like the 6 screw tremolos and three single coils, but like the modern 10 way switch for in series sounds.

    One guitar, one pedal & one amp yet cover all bases!

    One of my sss Strats w/10 way switch Swart Atomic Boost pedal Swart AST Pro amp This gives me a big range of tones by using my volume knob for fat solos and bright rhythm. The AST pro has tremolo and reverb that are exceptional.

    Jessie's Girl

    Jessie is the girls spelling. Changes the song considerably.

    To go with your amp, would you rather have an Axe FX III or a killer pedalboard?

    I’d take a pedal board. Programming computers and music don’t mix well with me. Much of the time I just have a fuzz, treble booster and a vibe and I don’t think the axe FX does treble boosters.

    How much does a typical (good quality)fret job on a rosewood fretboard neck cost

    Woodsongs luthery in Boulder has top quality techs. You would have to call about pricing, but they do great work.

    What’s up with Fender (and general guitar) prices these days?

    I guess the price of plywood is going up for their entry level Guitars to go up so much in price. I’m always amazed by how much people will pay just to have a Fender sticker on the headstock. It’s super easy to build a partscaster, with the finest hardware, for under a grand.
