    I took advantage of a 15% Black Friday sale and picked up this Taylor. :yesway: Sitka spruce top, rosewood sides and an ebony board. It's super resonant and sounds awesome. i haven't bothered with the electronics because I'll just mic it, but it's always nice to have. I also have to...

    Just ordered one of these: https://www.nordictrack.com/treadmills/commercial-2450-treadmill For my basement cardio man-cave. Nordictrack was doing a big cyber Monday discount, so I ended up getting it delivered and with the extended warantee for a hair over 2 grand. :yesway: Nobody gives a...

    Picked this up over the weekend: A Peterson Strobe Tuner 420. Old, but in great working shape and recently serviced by the fine folks at Peterson. I've owned the iStrobe app and have used the handheld digital Strobe tuners before, but mechanical nature of this makes it a different beast...

    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) I've been looking at getting a Torpedo for quite some time and wanted a VB101 but they were so damned expensive ($2500 here) so when Kosta popped his up on here, I had to grab it. Now I can track demos and work on preproduction at 3 in the morning without annoying...

    I figure Boots will like this. 2014 Yamaha YZ250F and 2012 new old stock Suzuki Quadsport 400LTZ. The bike was built yesterday. The quad is for the woman. She is crazier than me. Pretty happy with this bike so far. I'm going to give it a pretty good workout next week. I was...

    I picked up one of these for the winter: Amazon.com: Kinetic by Kurt Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer: Sports & Outdoors Gave it a quick 15 minute spin, and holy shit do you sweat your ass off when you don't have a headwind. :lol: Thing is pretty ace though, feels realistic as hell going...

    After having Sam Ash ruin the Black Paisley tele i ordered, instead of running out and buying another one right away to fill the void in my heart, I decided to look a little longer. Found one on CL down near the border in San Diego, for a pretty good deal, especially considering it came with a...

    Well....not really a toaster but pretty damn close. You have all seen it before but I figured why not please you all with some pics!! So far I am very impressed with the profiles that I have been using which mainly come from Fluff and Keith Merrow's sets. I have had to do a bit of...

    This really doesn't warrant as many pics as I took, but screw it. :lol: After like a month long runaround of tuner-swapping madness, I finally have black tuners that fit on my Suhr 7. Here's what it looked like w/the chrome ones. And after a hardware swap w/Drew, a Gotoh order that didn't...

    The Hipshots for my Suhr showed up today. They aren't nearly as cool as the Gotohs, but at least they fit. This is only v1.5 though, because I'm waiting on an order of the normal looking heads to show up from Hipshot (I don't like these wonky looking ones). When all's said and done, I'll have...

    These showed up today from japarts. They look fantastic. Unfortunately they aren't staying on the Suhr, because despite some back and forth with the vendor, apparently there was still a miscommunication. The retaining screw holes don't line up. I'll end up using them elsewhere, but my quest...

    New truck day. It won't look like this for too long. I've got big plans.
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Saw this on the Planet Waves website for $24.99. Then I found one on eBay for 13.99. So I had Zzounds match the price. When I got that email, I took it down to GC and they matched that price :lol: This little dude works great, and it's so out of the way and cheap. I might keep one every guitar...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    It's a 2700/2710 Killer. It's pretty cool and just drops straight into a 2 point strat cavity. It has adjustable radius & string spacing and also individual string height! Unfortunately the mounting studs/knife edge kinda things didn't come at the same time but hopefully they shouldn't be too...

    New Toobz Day! Grabbed some new power and preamp tubes for the Mesa....I currently have JJ E34Ls and a Tung Sol in V1 and I just don't like them together... I love the E34Ls but the Tung Sol + them just doesn't give the saturation and smoothness i'm looking for. To test this, I do my "pinch...

    These things are fucking awesome! Mini pic story. Dear shitty broken valves. Go fuck yourself. What do we have here?! :jj: MEHTAHHHHHHHHHHL Much more low end with these! Cannot wait to try it out at practice now!
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I tune for you. Mmmm... Yesss.. :jj:
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    What a fantastic piece of fucking gear! Totally worth it for $15 (shipped to my door). Great little tuner for my acoustic.

    I just picked up the Hardwire HT6. Pretty cool pedal. Poly mode seems designed to get you into acceptable tuning range quickly. Where as single mode (either chromatic or strobe) is designed for fine tuning. I like that the HT6 is designed to look more like a fretboard tab (for lack of a better...

    Finally picked up my new truck today. 2010 Nissan Frontier King cab, 4x4, V6, 6-speed manual, in "Night Armor" (dark grey). Really enjoying it so far.
