    Friedman users... how close can the Runt 20 with a boost get to the JJ Jr?

    All - I totally love the Runt, but I have to use a Buxom Boost to get me to the tone I have in my head. It's just about there. How close does that get to the JJ jr? Ideally, sometimes I want a bit more saturation. I have the chance to get a JJ Jr, but if the Runt 20 gets close enough to it...

    WORST experience selling a guitar?

    I was selling a guitar and met a guy at a local store. He took off the truss rod cover and tweaked a few things and then passed. When I asked him to put the truss rod cover back, he got all pissed off and yelled at me in the store saying I was entitled. Riiiight. last year, I sold a guitar that...

    How important is unplugged electric tone to you?

    I was messing around with three different guitars tonight. All different price points... the Prs cu22 (around $2400 or so) was the most resonant... almost like a piano. Next, $100 beater sounded great as well. My number 1 came in last as far as acoustic resonance. It’s a $1000 guitar that...

    Halo guitars? Balaguer guitars?

    I discovered Balaguer a few years ago... long story short, my wife and I had twins born 2 months early and our hospital bills were through the roof. i had to sell my Suhrs and Music Man's to pay off the bills. I decided to take a chance on BG to hold me over until I could afford another Suhr...

    Today’s $100 score!

    The person selling the guitar actually had that same exact model in surf green. It was surprisingly heavier than this one but it looks super killer

    Today’s $100 score!

    Happy new guitar day. This guitar came up in my Facebook marketplace feed selling for $120. They normally sell for about 190 or so. I offer the guy 100 bucks and he accepted. Turns out he lives about a mile away and I actually know his wife because they own a store front downtown. Anyway, I...

    Hardtail with Steel Frets for USD$2000 (ish)?

    Balaguer. Hands down. There is a virtual builder on the website so you can get an idea of the build when it’s done.

    I finally get the Friedman hype...

    I just leave the gain on the boost really low and turn up the level higher and higher before it gets muddy

    I finally get the Friedman hype...

    I never turned it up. Maybe to 2 and it was plenty loud

    I finally get the Friedman hype...

    It was insane. I had a boost pedal with me and when I engaged it, I was ripping the paint off the walls

    I finally get the Friedman hype...

    I finally get the Friedman hype… When I was gigging musician, I used to play clubs and venues with half stacks. Over the years I played with Soldano, Bogner, Fryette, etc. Over the last couple years, I condensed my rig since I am only playing at home and going out for occasional jams. Last year...

    Shred: Ibanez js1000 vs Kotzen Strat

    The kotzen tele has a baseball bat neck. I had one and returned it within two hours. There was no way for him to get used to something that big. As much as I like him that’s probably my favorite guitar player, I would go with the Satriani model

    Friedman Runt, JJ Jr, and WW20 Owners Club

    New runt 20 owner here! At first, I was slightly disappointed because I was hoping for a bit more saturation. Don’t get me wrong, it sounds fantastic but doesn’t really fit my style. I tweeted quite a bit and finally found a great combination using a bad monkey in front and a multi-efx unit in...

    Pedal suggestion for a Friedman Runt

    I recently got a Friedman Runt and it's pretty killer. The clean channel is nice and the dirty channel is about 80% there. It is bright for sure, but I want it to saturate a bit more. i'm looking for a pedal(that won't break the bank) that would take it up a notch to get that singing sustain and...
