    Could Use Some Advice Please!

    I am wanting to get into recording. I've been playing music for 30 plus years, but never have gotten into recording. It's kind of intimidated me, despite buying a Zoom HD16 recording device a few years ago. I just never learned to use it, although I lazily didn't put in enough effort to do...

    Love My AC30CC w/ Blues-But......

    I've gone through many amps over the years and always wanted to experience an AC30. I've had one for over a year and totally see what the magic that is the AC30 chime. Now since I'm hooked on that tone, I'm wondering if I would like the AC30 handwired/Heritage series even more...? Or maybe...

    AC30 Users Who Gig Them - Advise Needed

    I've had an AC30 CC with blues for over a year or so, but have never gigged it. I want to try it out this weekend and was hoping to get some advise from those who have. With the AC30's versatility, it leaves several options. Use Normal channel? TB channel? AB Box and try switching between the...

    For Those Who Do A Lot Of String Bending

    Do you find that certain guitars make it much harder for bending-especially higher up on the neck and on the bottom strings. I've not been able to identify exactly what it is, but some strats, a tele, and various others will have this....where I can't really "dig in." It's like the fret is too...

    1977 Fender Std. Telecaster

    Anyone have any experience with this year of Tele? I have the opportunity to get one at what I assume is a pretty decent price. I am partial to the 3 barrel saddles. This one has 6, but I think that is how they came. This guitar is apparently pretty much all original except for a fret job...

    My LP Custom Sounds Worse Than My Other 2-Help Please

    My LP Custom sounds inferior to my '97 Classic and 08 Standard. It feels as if it is darker, muddier, and just not even close to the tones of the other two. It shares the pretty similar pu's as the classic, so i don't think its the pu's. I've heard about some things you can do to brighten or...

    Was Offered This Trade: Should I?

    Been a Les Paul player all my life. I have black LP Custom and a Honeyburst Classic. I recently got an SG Standard to goof around with. I'm just starting to get used to it, but haven't totally warmed to it (starting to dig it a lot more recently). If I were to keep it, I'd DEFINITELY have...

    I have a 1981 Les Paul Custom that I've been playing for 16 years. *First Issue I've played it a ton and the frets are very worn to where I have trouble bending at times-like I'm having to use a lot of effort "digging in" to get under strings etc. The frets are so level that I think it may need...

    Help me with Panning

    Hello. I'm a novice recorder, using an old Roland VS 840. I always just sort of "wing it" when I record, but I'd like to know some strategy on panning. Is there an old fashioned standard for each instrument? Like what normally would be panned in the middle, what to the left, to the right...

    Carmen Ghia Owners:

    What speakers have you tried with them? I'm currently running my Ghia head through 2 vintage 30's, but want to try some other options out. I'm thinking of buying a 1x12 or something different for fun. I was wondering if a Red Fang would work well with one...? Open to any...
