    Sold K&M (Two Rock) LTD amp head - SALE PENDING!

    Wonderful amp! Serial #04 - making it one of the first run of this model. Cathode biased and able to use pretty much any octal power tube - 6V6, 5881, 6L6, EL34, KT66, etc., for a power output from about 12W to 35W, roughly. The OT is a 45-50W chunk of iron, so the lowest output figure is still...

    PSA - linguistics

    This is something that always bothered me about the guitar community. When you make a verb past tense like "relic", it becomes "relicked", not reliced. Reliced means to infest with lice again. panic/panicked traffic/trafficked shellac/shellacked relic/relicked Here's the rule: "go on a...

    Sold 1958 Mullard EL37 laboratory matched pair - price drop

    Hate to sell these! I've had this pair for a few years and have put only a few hours on them. Recently tested for current match at 405 plate volts: 55.3ma/55.0ma (they don't call them lab matched for nothing!) Printing is excellent on one; the other has little of the Mullard shield left, but...

    Briggs Guitars - new model

    New for 2013 after several years in the works - the Ventura. This model has been on a back burner for over 6 years but just completed this prototype for evaluations, and I could hardly be happier! Obviously modeled after the venerable Stratocaster design from Fender, but with my body and...

    RSP new model Apollo Junior

    The first of a short run of 4 pieces only in Reserve Stock Program tonewoods (old air-dried wood). This is the Apollo Junior in TV Sunburst finish. Yes, I know - why am I calling it a "Junior" when it clearly has 2 pickups? In Briggs nomenclature an Apollo Junior is a slab bodied, 1 or 2 pickup...

    had nice chat with Michael Stevens yesterday

    We were apparently playing "email tag" after I'd sent him a message and his replies were not coming through to my email server (weird?), so he called me to talk. I hadn't spoken with Michael before, but several email messages in the past consulting on some luthiery question. Super nice guy! We...
