    Dr. Z Maz Jr II Speaker Upgrade

    Just received a new Maz Jr and really like the amp although still a bit bright for my ears. I happened to have some extra Avatar Fane M65s so I tried one out in it and man does it ever sound great! Tames the harsh high end without loosing the treble sparkle. Just a perfect speaker in this amp...

    Orange VT-1000 Valve Tester - Snake Oil

    Had two EL34s on the left side of a quad redplate and one flashed and took out the HT and power line fuses on my BE100 before I had a chance to turn it off.

    Murphy Aged Finish Up-charge

    Hi guys, I have an opportunity for a nice '59 True Historic Les Paul with an aged Murphy finish.

    I just sold one of my Les Paul Historics on eBay for $5,495 to a guy in Hong Kong with only 5 feedback. Paypal is currently reviewing the payment before they clear it but if that goes well should I have any concerns about sending this guitar there? I know if it was China mainland I don't think I...

    Your thoughts about Small Boutique Stores

    /rant on I just had another experience with a boutique guitar store that kind of put me off them again.

    Humbucker Music Bad Customer Experience

    Got a Bad Cat 30R head from these guys this week. It was supposed to be new but it arrived in a Black Cat 30 box with smudges all over it and with the wrong color knobs. So I try it out anyway only to find it is making a buzzing noise when played. I call the custom service and their solution...

    Budda Shrunken Head Cabinet

    Schroeder Edge

    Just came across a listing on eBay for a Schroeder Edge on sale from a dealer clearing them out. I assume it is one that Jason did not build but still looks nicely finished. Looked like a nice guitar so I thought I would give it a try. Anyone else have one of these? How do you like it?

    Nolatone - Nicely Done

    Just wanted to give a quick thumbs up to Nolatone. I saw one of their Rotten Johnny amps on eBay recently going for a good price. The amp looked interesting but I did not know too much about it. After reading a few posts I decided to take a chance. This 1X12 combo amp is a nice grab and go...

    Suhr SSC is Amazing

    I know this has been talked about in the past but I just got my first Suhr with the SSC system recently from a fellow forum member and all I can say is WOW. I love single coil tones but have mostly bought humbucker guitars because I cannot stand the hum and have not really loved any of the...
