1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Haha, yea, there was a thread on this in March I believe. Pretty insane, especially considering that it's made out of $3 worth of parts and it's not even mint. I hope it made someone happy! Someone commented at the time that they had a NOS Rangemaster still in the original box, unused, and had no idea that they were worth so much. Cha-ching!

    Hey for Authenticity reasons yea, if your a museum cool you've got the real deal

    but for about $19 in parts + 2 hours of drilling ,painting & soldering one could make an identical sounding clone. Take it a step further hit ebay and get NOS components they're out there.

    Dear sweet mercy.

    That's it......I'm going garage sale-ing in Hollywood this weekend, selling the swag on e-bay and quitting my job.

    That's the craziest, thing I've seen on the Bay. Think of what you could buy for that much cash. I wonder if it's a TGP member?
