    Will my amp blow up a Cannabis Rex?

    It's about time I replace the speaker in my Sunn T50c. Tonally, and for my purposes, a cannabis rex sounds like the perfect fit, but I don't know if I might potentially blow it up. The Sunn is 50w RMS, stock with a celestion GT-75. 98% of the time I'll be using it with an attenuator, with...

    Good, affordable tech in San Francisco

    Can anyone recommend a solid tech that I can afford on a budget? My G&L could use a little bit of love. I know of orbiter guitars in San Leandro, but it's a bit far from the sunset district in SF, not to mention an extra $40 after two trips out there.

    Monocase double

    Any of you guys with the double case ever use it with just one guitar? Is it too big or is it just fine schlepping a single guitar around? I like the idea of extra space for when I need it, but a good portion of the time only feel like bringing one guitar out. thanks!

    Fingernail alternatives? Alaska Pik?

    I love the sound and feel of my fingernails on guitar, but realistically mine aren't strong enough for anything other than nylon strings, and they're quite limiting when playing other instruments. Anyone know of a good alternative? So far this seems to be the only option I can find, anyone...

    Help me hook up my attenuator to my AC30!

    Hi, I'm a bit technically challenged, so this may be a simpler issue than I realize. I recently bought an attenuator for my AC30cc. Currently, the amp is wired so that the cables for the speaker in the combo come out of a hole in the chassis and are soldered directly to the...

    Best Attenuator for an AC30?

    I'd like to get an attenuator for my AC30cc - I'll be moving to a new place soon and most likely will not be able to crank it. Anyone have any experience with what attenuators work best? I'm looking for a unit that will let me bring down with volume without sacrificing too much of the amp's...

    Fretted notes above the 12th fret buzz out

    When fret above the 12th fret(particularly between the 12th and 14th, E on the D string being especially bad), the note is very thin sounding, and will buzz out and die immediately if I add any vibrato. What could be causing this? The action is excellent, and the frets don't seem to have much...

    Good Affordable Gig Bag?

    What are my options here for a nice, relatively cheap gig bag? I'd like something with lots of padding (don't want my tele breaking if it falls), and a pocket of some sort would be nice. Backpack straps are pretty key as well. I'm also completely open to used options as well

    Packing a guitar for shipping

    What's the best and safest way to pack a guitar for shipping? I've sent a couple off in the past, but I'm shipping one out to Italy and I want to make sure it gets there safely. Here are my plans so far: I got a large bass shipping box, so there will be a little more room for packing materials...

    Good tech in San Francisco?

    My G&L comanche is in need of a setup. Can anyone recommend me a tech who can do a good job? I'm willing to pay for quality, but alas, I am a student, so something fairly affordable would be preferable. thanks!

    Where do I get a tool to adjust my Hamer?

    I seem to have lost the tool to adjust the truss rod on my Hamer Artist? The tool is 5/16", but the 5/16" crescent wrench I have will not fit into the small space where the truss rod is rescessed into. Anyone know where I can get one of these?

    Guitar Polish

    I could use a new bottle of polish. I have heard that virtuoso polish is the best, but is it really that much better than others to warrant a $10 price tag for a little bottle? what do you all use

    My McInturff keeps breaking high E's

    I got a Mcinturff Polaris from Esoteric Pete a couple weeks ago, and it's just an incredible instrument. The only problem is, the high e's keep breaking. I rarely ever break strings on guitars, but I've gone through 4 high e's in the past week. Anyone have any idea what might be going on here?
