    UPS shipping advice

    Hey everybody, I might be shipping out a guitar tomorrow. I usually ship at my local UPS store, and always get raped with the fees. I have read here that some of you ship the guitar at a UPS shipping center and its much cheaper. Is this true? If so, how much did you save? I notice on the...

    Talk to me about Mario Martin guitars!

    Man, today I went to LA Vintage Gear in Burbank and played a Mario Martin tele style. GREAT shop by the way; very nice guys in there with amazing guitars. I'd like to get an S style and never played a MM until today. Went in there to check out some K-Lines, which were great, but when I picked...

    Need help with metallic sound on my guitar (Collings content)

    OK, so I have a beautiful Collings Soco 16 LC guitar that is giving me one problem. For some reason, the G and B strings, especially the G string sounds very "plinky" to me. I think that I remember reading about "plinky" sounding G strings before, but don't remember what the details were. In...

    Anyone know if PRS is doing factory tours yet?

    I'm thinking of doing a trip to the Mid-Atlantic this summer and wanted to maybe do the factory tour. I was wondering if any of you know if its happening yet? Also, if it is, do they sell guitars at the factory at all? Thanks.

    OK, so I have some guitars that were Plekked from the factory, and of course they play amazing with excellent fret work.

    Favorite clone/kit/or conversion for a hardwired Deluxe Reverb?

    I've been thinking about getting a handwired deluxe reverb for some time now and want to see all the options out there. I know that I can get a silver face reverb, but they are really getting up there in cost now, and I really don't want to deal with old amp issues. I feel like if I end up...

    Good external hard drive for recording?

    I'm getting a new computer soon, and will probably be picking up a new hard drive for recording.

    Anyone check out the Ibanez AF2000?

    Anyone play one of these yet? They are a made in Japan arch top with a spruce top. Does anyone know if the top is solid or pressed? The website just says spruce. I like the size of these Ibanez archtops, but I haven't been able to check out one of the newer Japanese made ones. I want a...

    What are you guys using for silent practice?

    OK so the in-laws are staying with us for a while and I can't play through my amp and computer set up for a little while. I need to practice silently at night time. What are you guys using for this? I did this tonight and used an amp model in Logic and played along with music in the computer...

    Favorite 1x12 cab for a Badger 18?

    Looking for recommendations for those of you who own a Badger 18 head. I have an old boogie 112 with a Celestion creme back in it. It sounds pretty great with an open back. I’m wondering how different it would sound with Suhr closed back out with the Vetran 30. Any other recommendations from...

    Talk to me about the Marsh Deluxe Reverb Clone

    I've been looking around at Deluxe Reverb clones and the Marsh comes in very affordable. Anyone have any experience with his amps? How are the transformers and capacitors compared to more expensive ones like Headstrong? I know that you can build a clone cheap, but a big part of the sound is...

    Help with HX Effects

    I was wondering if any of you have experienced this problem before. I have noticed that knobs 2 and 3 on my unit don't seem to do anything anymore. If I turn them in any of my presets, nothing happens. This began a little while ago. I have since did a factory reset and also upgraded to the...

    Favorite cheap and simple reverb pedal

    I'm looking for a basic reverb pedal for around $100. I am looking for something that sounds good and just has basic sounds like spring, hall or plate. I have other ones for over the top stuff. I am looking at the Holy Grail for this, but is there something better that I should look at? I...
