    Relic'd Guitars are for Posers

    Yeah that stuff makes my head hurt . As I was raised in the "village" in the old country and we had to burn the books to keep warm .

    NGD Gibson Les Paul Axcess Custom stoptail bengal burst

    I would suggest to talk with the Music Zoo or Wildwood and tell them what you want . Shops like these have more leverage than we do and you might be surprised in a good way .

    Can I "daisychain" 2 JCM 800 Bass 100W?

    Thank You for the nice view

    NGD Gibson Les Paul Axcess Custom stoptail bengal burst

    I am surprised by that , as I would have thought anything for $ as I thought it was all a la carte menu . Weird in this day and age ?

    Gibson Sonex 180

    Its okay man as we all have our favorites and preferences . I probably would have been offended if I had a financial stake or skin in the game as I don't it's all good :)

    Gibson Sonex 180

    Sonex didn't make the cut for the bulldozer . The Firebird X did . What a waste , like Gibson couldn't donate them to poor inner city schools music programs ? Maybe build future sales from kids picking up the instrument and taking lessons and then wanting to buy a proper Gibson ?

    NGD Gibson Les Paul Axcess Custom stoptail bengal burst

    You can get those features I am sure on a Made 2 Measure Custom Shop build . All it would take is $ and time for the build . I say if that's what you want go for it as life is short and why should we deprive ourselves ? Best Wishes !

    A lot of people like half step tuning just for the reason you mentioned . Flash nitro for sure .

    Maybe the Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's pickups ? I have those in an alder body 57 reissue maple neck Strat and I like them in this Strat .

    Can a DSL 100H get close to a Friedman BE100?

    Mind blowing as to the engineering aspect of this as it's more involved than I ever considered or thought of in the makeup of a Marshall cabinet . Thank You kindly for the info and education . Jim Marshall choose Spruce not by accident as that is for sure !

    Pink Floyd - One Of These Days Cover

    The way that it came out was brilliant and perfect IMHO . Totally nailed it and then some , and I have to think that it is not the easiest music to play or record for that matter .

    Nice 3 tone Stratocaster . All stock or did you change pickups ?

    Can a DSL 100H get close to a Friedman BE100?

    This makes a lot of sense . Because Spruce is used on violin tops and tops on a lot of acoustic guitars like Martins for example . So the Guvnor Jim Marshall was very smart in this decision . This is pretty wild as I never once considered the type of wood used for the cabinets , much...

    Relic'd Guitars are for Posers

    So that would be a hip/belly dive . By no action on my part the last Strat I purchased 10 years ago came with the trem set to float and I hate the whammy bar and I discovered I can get palm dives which is nice for a little accent once in a while ...

    Can a DSL 100H get close to a Friedman BE100?

    This blows my mind as I never stopped to consider the wood aspect in a cab .

    Can a DSL 100H get close to a Friedman BE100?

    Your playing and tone are super righteous and Bravo !!!!!!! Sounds amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!! (sounds nice and thick as a good amp should )

    Gibson Explorer FINALLY working out.

    Raising the pickup height increases volume , but there is a tradeoff where if you get too close to the strings you will have the dreaded buzzing . Lowering pickup height will make the pickup have less output . Same thing with polepieces . Now some lower pickup height and raise polepieces for...
