    Is There a Small Tube Amp Around 20 Watts That Stays Clean?

    Epiphone EA-28RVT Pathfinder. More like 15 watts, but stays clean all the way up the dial. It's the same amp as the Gibson GA-19RVT Falcon, but about 30% of the cost.

    Should I find a new guitar tech?

    Personally, I'd go with the cement block option. I have a cement nut and it is "tone for days" material.

    The folly of chasing famous recorded guitar tones

    Happy as a clam with my tones, recorded, live, or otherwise. I've got a bunch of nice stuff that pretty much covers anything I might want. I have arrived. Now I just need a studio to put it all in.

    Do you bias your tube amps?

    This is what I use. I got mine right before they stopped making them. So far, so good.

    Do you bias your tube amps?

    I believe this is the answer. I've ran into this problem before.

    The unbelievable IIC+

    Just curious, why can't they reissue it properly? Isn't the Petrucci supposed to be based on it? Anyways, I read the threads and most people say it (JP model) doesn't quite get there. What's the hold-up?

    Neck humbucker on 22/24 fret guitars.

    I'm in the "neck pickup on a 22 fret guitar is boomy" camp. I have a Trussart with 24 frets and absolutely love the neck pickup tone. I generally play with medium-high gain, but I think it sounds great clean as well.

    1964 Gibson Falcon GA-19RVT for $480; worth it?

    I just picked up the Epiphone Pathfinder 28rvt which is the same circuit; cost me all of $300. All original except for a 3-prong, cap job, and a new pair of 6v6s. It is a clean machine even with my highest output humbuckers. It's very bright/chimey, but in a really nice way. It appears the going...

    FS 1955 Jensen Field Coil Speaker

    I think you're right. They only use a single digit date code so I'll change it.

    I’ve waited over 30 years for this guitar

    Very cool! Enjoy the new axe.

    Your Favorite JCM800-but-more-flexible amps?

    The Fargen Olde 800 is nice and can be found cheap used. I haven't played the Metroplex or Superplex, but they look awesome on paper and like they could get into those tones. Edit: didn't catch the bit about cleans on the first go around.

    ceramic speaker that sounds like a Celestion Blue but need higher wattage

    Interesting. I appreciate the correction.

    ceramic speaker that sounds like a Celestion Blue but need higher wattage

    Yeah, there's just something about it that is damn near perfect. Mine is in a 2x12 with a GPA 417-8H, and what a combo that is!

    Tube amps that you can CRANK without going deaf

    I have Westone custom earplugs. As such I regularly play a 504 and VT-40 in dual mono cranked. Glorious tone, problem solved.
