    Is there still a place for 100W amps?

    Yup. Most around here are either 50-120 watt tubes or Kemper. Some play Twins and Vibrolux or a Dr. Z if they’re more clean than dirty, but Marshall, Friedman, Wizard, Mesa, H&K, Orange, and the 5150’s of all stripes are sighted frequently.

    Does appearing in promotional material make a guitar worth more?

    I bought this mid-80’s Roscoe custom built about a two years ago. After I bought it I found out that it was played and purchased originally by another guitarist in my area whom I knew when he was playing thrash metal. I also found out that she was the cover guitar for Keith Roscoe’s catalog...

    School me: Floyd Rose Upgrades

    No upgrade is required from the FR 1000. It’s pretty decent stock. The fine tuners aren’t as “smooth” as the OFR but they work and the tremolo is built pretty well. If I upgraded anything on the 1000 (or the OFR) it would be saddle locking blocks and a switch to the push in arm, both being...

    How do I "yellow" my guitars? Best cigarette brand?

    It’s a 1983 Kramer Focus 3000D. Picked it up for $30 a couple years back. It’s a pretty nice guitar considering. I have that NFT OFR put aside and put a newer one with fine tuners on it. I was amazed by the “tan lines” on her. I call the color Nicotine White…

    Are SGs just an inherently bad design?

    I was never an SG guy until I bought one on a whim and loved it. Now I have two and they’re not going anywhere… YMMV

    Shredder Electric guitar

    That guitar is worth what anyone might pay for it, but is a low end item, so I’d think $80-$125-ish might the the sweet spot. It’s NOT a Peavey guitar, unfortunately so the Peavey collecting cult who even love the low end stuff wouldn’t be interested, but the market would most likely be youth...

    Why are USA Charvels so much more expensive than USA Fenders?

    My current favorite guitar, not just my favorite Charvel ( I own five) is my late 80’s early 90’s Charvel Fusion Custom…it’s a lot of guitar for the money!

    Putting a heavier gauge of strings on a Floyd Rose guitar? How to set up?

    This is a Polytune. You can strum all the strings at once and it shows all six string’s tuning at once. Yes, in a floating Floyd Rose style you want the tremolo perfectly level/parallel to the body of the guitar. This means the spring tension and string tension are equal, and give the tremolo...
