    Looking at a JCM 900, opinions?

    Way overpriced. You can buy used dsls for $500 all day long, and they're better than the 900 series.

    Help with old VHT 4x10” cab

    I think those were for the pittbull 45 amps, whichever years they were available (late 90s-early 2000s?). Those don't look like stock speakers but I mat be wrong.

    Luxxtone, Charvel Custom shop, or Chubtone

    I spent 30 years in manufacturing and have to disagree with your opinion. A good piece of wood is a good piece of wood, no matter if it's routed on a cnc in your shop, my shop, or chiseled out by himalayan monks. The setup and custom finish is what sets a builder like luxxtone apart.

    Luxxtone, Charvel Custom shop, or Chubtone

    Doesn't really matter. Manufacturers outsource most parts.

    Hardwire pedals forgotten?

    They didn't really go belly up though. Samsung bought their parent company and shut them down.

    Anyone else own a Peavey VTM 60 or 120

    With all of the switches off the amp is basically a jcm 800, which don't have tons of bass. A 120 popped up in my local shop this week but was sold before I could check it out.

    Dimarzio pickups? What the?.....

    "You need to play a real burst"? Nah, you need to get rid of that overweight hunk of mahogany and get a real axe, like a Tele.

    Frets rusting on 5yo Custom 24, what to do!

    I have the same issue with my custom 22. Gorgomyte works, but the frets oxidize again within a short amount of time. I don't have this issue with any other guitar. Will be replacing with stainless at some point. I see a lot of people recommending jescar (i think that's what prs uses) but in my...

    Do prefer having tech built into the tube amp or separate? Referring to IR and Modeling Features

    I think it's great having them together, the only downside is the digital tech becoming obsolete. The ir circuit id very small, though, and shouldn't cause any headaches if you don't use it. If i was playing our more often I'd definitely consider the pt15. I heard Pete demo it locally, the...

    Thicker and heavier than my Bogner Shiva?

    Only heard it with high gain, but I'm sure it's versatile. I've heard every amp that's been mentioned in this thread and think the uber is what you're after, it's like the perfect recto. I prefer the Fryette stuff myself, but I think you've already been doen that road.

    The be has more gain than a stock jcm800. It's a great circuit if you're into high gain Marshall tones.

    Friedman be or Fryette Deliverance for evh. A jose mod really doesn't sound like evh, the hbe would be a good choice for that though.

    Poly spray gloss poly in a can?

    Hendrix 'Four Pedals' Pic: Did He Ever Use FuzzFace AND Octavio at the Same Time?

    Just to note, Jimi supposedly used the axis fuzz on bog (not a true fuzz face). Also, his Marshalls were usually loud enough to distort. I long believed all of his distortion was from the fuzz until watching a bunch of live footage.
