    RIP Mark Lacey

    Wow... what a loss. I had the privilege of talking with him a few times when I had delusions of commissioning a high-end acoustic archtop. A very gentle soul, and a true artisan.

    Has the used market started to cool down?

    I practice medicine, not economics. Filter everything I'm about to say through that prism. Debating the definition of a recession is rather like debating the definition of shock. All that matters in shock is the effect on the end organs (kidneys, liver, etc.). I'd suggest that recession should...

    Should I just go for a Grace Alix or Bix?

    Another EXTREMELY pleased Alix owner here! Top shelf acoustic preamp.

    Does anyone make this guitar?

    I ordered through a dealer many states away. Had some conversations with Juhn Suhr (he is @Husky on TGP) in advance of the build, and the neck he recommended was exactly what I was after.

    Does anyone make this guitar?

    It is more than a regular production model, but not much so. It doesn't look like your specs are all that radical (i.e. expensive). Definitely worth investigating, and the finished product will be phenomenal. Here's a picture of mine for reference. I was going for an 80's Charvel vibe (like the...

    Does anyone make this guitar?

    Custom order Suhr is where I'd start.

    What’s your favorite auto wah / envelope filter pedal?

    I've loved my Mad Professor Snow White Auto Wah for years. Does both envelope and auto wah.

    3rd Power - Wooly Coats Extra Spanky 6VEL

    Oh, I don't know... I have a pair of them that I run as part of a stereo rig. I haven't found a volume yet where they sound anything but stellar! A testament to the work you guys do.

    Callaham amp

    I wish they would. I love mine, but wouldn't mind at all adding one or two more.

    3rd Power - Wooly Coats Extra Spanky 6VEL

    Absolutely loving both of mine. Buzzing must be a strange aberration, as this is one of the quietest (in terms of background noise) amps I've ever owned.

    Collings 01A/Assisted Living Music

    America is somewhat unique in that we tend to "warehouse" our elderly rather than bringing them into our own homes as they age. Gestures like yours are an invaluable injection of kindness and humanity into an environment of those who so often are forgotten. Music is a universal language. Having...

    Neunaber Illumine / Source Audio Collider: Compare/Contrast

    Hi folks. In the midst of a major pedalboard rebuild and down to the one pedal I haven't decided on yet: Stereo reverb/delay. The two that interest me the most are the Neunaber Illumine and the Source Audio Collider. A little background: I'm interested in it mainly for the stereo reverb quality...

    The Pete Cornish Thread Mark VI

    Thanks to all for your input and counsel. Connected with Pete yesterday and ordered OC-1, CC-1, GC-1, and 3Q-1. He quoted around 12-15 weeks, which was better than I was expecting.

    The Pete Cornish Thread Mark VI

    Another question for you guys who have ordered direct from Pete. He responded very quickly when I contacted him about pedal recommendations. I emailed him back soon thereafter telling him I'd like to order. I gave that email a couple days without response before emailing again to place an order...

    Mosrite/ Univox

    If you want this look at top shelf quality, have Mark Fuqua of MotorAve guitars build you a MotoVox. He built some years ago as a limited edition. I had a beautiful Moss Green one that was purchased by another TGP member (can't remember the name). I believe Mark said he would still build them to...

    The Pete Cornish Thread Mark VI

    So... had a consultation of sorts with Pete himself. To maximize versatility and minimize redundancy, he recommended: P-1 OC-1 GC-1 CC-1 3Q-1 Can those of you who ordered new from Pete recently please describe the process, wait times, etc.? Thanks so much!

    The Pete Cornish Thread Mark VI

    Greetings to the Cornish experts! I am rebuilding my rig (again!) and considering going with Cornish for all of the front-end pedals. Thought I might tap into the collective wisdom in this thread. Given that Cornish pedals aren't clones of existing circuits, it's a little difficult to make...

    What strings do you favour?

    Haven't spoken to Dean in forever, but got turned onto SOB strings by Stu Carter in the early days of Fat Sound Guitars. SOB's were my favorites until they weren't available anymore. After that, I tried everything I could get my hands on at every price point imaginable. To my surprise, I found...
