After Brian sold to Sam Ash, I saw him in there. He said part of his agreement with them was that he would work for them for a year, or two. I also use to run into him from time to time at sports card and memorabilia shows. Our sons shared an interest in card collecting. That was twenty years...
This just showed up on my YouTube page:
Also not sure what this means, business wise, but the company just announced that RBI Music will be the exclusive distributor of Big Joe's guitar effects pedals and power supplies.
As I live about two miles from their location, I reached out to them a while back and never heard anything back. Oddly enough, I literally drive by their offices twice a day for work. Would love to hear more from these guys!
Know this is a very old thread, but I've been looking at a 1959 Les Paul Junior double cut that is reasonably priced. Its reasonably priced as the pickguard, knobs, case, and bridge/tail piece are not original. Its also a refin and the listing says it has a sealed vertical neck crack from...
I'm very saddened to hear this news! While I purchased my Pro Artist second hand, I had a great interaction with Gerard after I tripped over the guitar and made a mess of the lower bout. I got in touch with him about a refinish and I couldn't have received better customer service if my guitar...
Was going to say that I would have expected this amp to come up, since it's pretty popular here. This one's definitely in the Marshall camp, but a very versatile tone machine! Here's JD Simo playing Ed King's (RIP) burst through one.
The neck is actually made of Fir from wood salvaged from renovations on The Hotel Chelsea. The body is Pine from a former speakeasy on Bedford Street called Chumley's. An interesting combination, for sure!
This is my oldest guitar, a 1980 Ibanez AS-200:

And my second oldest, a 1989 Fender Eric Clapton Signature:

Love my Mercury V and if you consider the versatility of the amp, it can be pretty clean without the boost, and in the Parallel mode. If you want to use pedals, it takes them very well, or just flip a switch and enjoy!
MAZ 18 2 x 10 combo here! It's an older one, SN N8783. Always wondered about the MK. II,but like the way it sounds now and don't really want to change it.
Friend of mine, Matt Rae, a fine pro player, swears by Dr Z amps.
Thanks for the heads up!
Food was not bad, we just had salads, but they have a good size menu, some wines and specialty drinks, as well as a number of beers on tap. Its only about an hour from where I live so I'd go back again for sure.
The place is the size of any restaurant/bar, maybe a little bigger. I didn't think it was super loud. My wife thought the drummer was super loud though.
JD might have changed his settings a bit for this tour, although I'm not 100% sure on that. But he did play that hollow body ES-5 that I...
Had the pleasure of seeing JD Simo at Daryl's House in Pawling, NY this past Wednesday night. I got a signed advanced copy of JD's new CD "Off at 11", and JD asked if I wanted to stay and hang out and he'd show me his guitars. So of course I stayed! I had my LPF t-shirt on, so that might have...
I would add the Marshall JTM 30 and JTM 60 to this list. I think the word is out on these amps as well. I owned one of these in the '90s, and the first amp I bought was one of the aforementioned Music Man RD series combos.
Sold both years ago, unfortunately!
