    No, I haven't become one of those insufferably repetitive stoner/doom fanbois. I'm not using it for its distortion. Quick background - I became very bored of the tubescreamer sound a couple of years back and delved into some alternatives. You can boutique yourself all the way to the very top of...

    what size do I need to open the holes up to for graph tech ratio tuners and what's the right way to do this? I bought fancy new tuners to put on a cheap epiphone SG thinking there's no way it would have vintage style tuning pegs being that its a 2019 model. I was dead wrong lol. anywho, the...

    2006 EC1000 Deluxe Satin Vintage Honeyburst (or maybe Amber Sunburst?). No Abalone! Nearly perfect with the exception of two small marks near the pickup selector (see pictures). This is one of the fantastic mid-2000s Korean models. Sperzel locking tuners, Earvana compensated nut, TonePros...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I finally got around to replacing the bridge pickup in my '85 Soloist with a vintage Duncan JBJ that I've had for a while. The JBJ sounds fantastic in this guitar (no surprise there), but the fun part is looking at the stock Jackson pickup. For those who don't know, Jackson started making their...

    I just sold my DSL50, which was my main metal amp. I already miss it, but...I decided it was too big. I also have a Vintage Modern 2266C that I love. It's also very classic Marshall and can do some great old-school metal and hard rock. Sometimes I wish it was a little more 800-ish on the...

    After watching a number of YouTube videos raving about it, I purchased the Harley Benton G212 Vintage cabinet ( https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_g212_vintage.htm ) a 2X12 cabinet with 2 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. Before this purchase, I had 2 4X12 cabinets (from order of...

    This should be interesting. When I started buying 80s guitars a lot of the appeal is because they were cheaper, and used. But like cars, a "used" guitar is not as valuable as a "vintage" guitar. Finish wear on a "Used" guitar is undesirable, but on a "Vintage" one it can sometimes be a selling...

    So I've just picked up a strat body as I've never owned one and decided to put together a partscaster and I need some advice from you fine chaps on trems. The spacing on the screws is 56mm (which I think is US vintage spec) and I don't fancy a 6 point trem. I was going to get a gotoh 510 style...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I jammed with a few fellas last night, and it was really a blues type thing, so I took my Telestratster and the SR50. Modern was way too crazy for just the three of us, so I flipped over to Vintage, and it was actually pretty fun once you can get the amp up to some decent volume. I mention it...

    Anyone has played one of these: If so... how are they? Forget the Pups parts those can always be changed, more interested on how these compare to the EVH Superstrats or even the MIM Charvel, although I know its not the same since these have 24 frets and are Indonesia made (not that it should...

    So I'm working on a baritone tele project that Donnie hooked me up with through USA Custom Shop(Its top notch work by the way. Super impressed). Got a flame on flame neck, swamp ash body. The plan is to make it look vintage style, but its going to be a no nonsense low tuned metal machine. White...

    No longer for sale. Turns out these are from 1999, before production moved to China, so I'm going to hang onto them for now. Especially at this price. :D FS: pair of V30s, 16 ohms. In good condition; used but not abused. I bought them off another RTer years ago. Cones are stamped 444...

    A customer brought in this Gibson for a set-up last week. As I had it on the workbench I realised that my Vintage V100 sitting over in the corner is a direct replica :lol: I just thought it was a cool photo opportunity, since they look so damn similar but are at least £2k apart in price...
  14. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    As per the NGD thread, I bought this as a parts project with the intension of flipping it for something else. Well... I just bought that 'something else' and it's on its way, so this needs to go :lol: £180 ono It's had a fret dress and set up. Currently in Eb with D'addario 10-46. One dink...

    Nice trem, I don't need it.

    But my friend wouldn't lend me his model T :(. Vintage Sunn Scepter (sounds really good, just fired it up to check it out). Vintage modded Hiwatt DR, not sure if it's a 105 or a 103. I know one of the mods was that he somehow wired it so that the input jack is now 12V and juiced, to power...

    These came in my MX130 courtesy of the previous owner however I'll never use them as they're not my kinda thing. Plenty of wire on them. AUD$200, buyer to pay postage to wherever in the world. It's like $25 shipping to most places. I've done deals with *******, Samark and Kosta before.

    I had no intention of buying anything today, but I stumbled across these 2 things: MIJ Ibanez FL9 L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic DI The Ibanez Flanger has been on my list for years. I missed out on the reissue at about 5 years ago, so getting this at the price I paid for is a small victory for...
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've read all the hype surrounding the vintage '80s Duncans wound by Maricela Juarez and was curious to hear what an old JB sounds like, since I've never gotten along with the new ones. I found an old "JBJ" on eBay for a decent price and decided to try it in Noodles' old white USA Soloist. That...
