    What will the next Bonnamassa model be? A 335…

    I went to Sweetwater’s page on Epi semi-hollows, and couldn’t see much difference between this $1299 guitar and a 335 listed at $599. The only real difference I could see or read was the trem on the Joe. A $700 trem?

    Epiphone 1961 (Les Paul) SG Question

    Pancreas, I too have no luck with P90s due to buzz when gain and/or volume is increased below a certain point (way below metal concert settings). On my one P90 equipped LP, I gave up and switched to SD noise canceling P90.

    Epiphone 1961 (Les Paul) SG Question

    Well, I have the original 61 SG LP I bought in 1961. PAFs and side pull trem. I keep it because it was my first real guitar and almost never play it. I have better player’s guitars. The only thing that keeps it from having neck dive is that massive (otherwise worthless) trem unit. It’s tone...

    RIP Loretta Lynn

    She was a great country artist who will be missed. My late mother was indeed a coal miner’s daughter.

    Where Does the Tone Come From in a Guitar Amplifier?

    Well, some tube amps can, when built, be tuned to produce certain musical tones. If you are ordering a custom anp, I have found. it possible to describe in words the tone you want, some builders understand, and some may not. It is difficult to describe a tone in mere words. If you buy an amp...

    Where Does the Tone Come From in a Guitar Amplifier?

    Cool. A player that is better than me (almost everybody) will clearly sound better! I was speaking that, with a player of given ability (good or not so good) the amp makes a greater difference than the guitar (provided, of course that the guitars are properly set up for the player)

    Quiet Quitting and Quiet Firing. A guide to passive aggressive employment.

    Well, Steve, the opportunity for lateral moves that paid more are “promotions” for the purposes of my post above. When there were opportunities for lateral moves that paid more, I worked my arse off.

    Quiet Quitting and Quiet Firing. A guide to passive aggressive employment.

    Well guys, in the last few months I lost $450K out of my retirement account. Stock and bond markets have a mind of their own, so it is nobody’s fault. So it will return. And there is enough left for the income I need from it until it does. But this has nothing to do with Quiet Quitting. In my...

    Where Does the Tone Come From in a Guitar Amplifier?

    Yes, the speaker choice does make a difference. And what is the Crystal lattice?

    Where Does the Tone Come From in a Guitar Amplifier?

    I didn’t even listen to the vid, because I have no luck telling tones apart over computer speakers. Instead, this is my own experience only. I have high and low dollar guitars. Pups are humbuckers, P90s, and single coils. With my tube amps, their controls, and the controls on the guitars, I...

    EVH or.... Rik Emmett?

    Big, I temper RE’s column in GP. It was called Back to Basics as I recall. I read it every month as my playing is very basic.

    Quiet Quitting and Quiet Firing. A guide to passive aggressive employment.

    Well, where I live there is an extreme labor shortage, especially but not limited to the hospitality industry. Employees are not replaceable. Many are Quiet Quitting (doing the minimum to get by) and it sure shows.

    EVH or.... Rik Emmett?

    Me too — garbage man that is.

    EVH or.... Rik Emmett?

    I can’t say whether RE is a better player than EVH or vice Versa, as I lack qualifications to make such a call. All I can say is I enjoy listening to both but personally like RE’s style a bit more. And we must remember that RE also sang and and had to fill each song with only a bass and drum...

    1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb - possible NAD?

    Not knowing where and what you play, it is hard to advise. I used to have a ‘63 Fender Pro amp, and it sounded lousy at lower volumes for small to medium venues. At higher volumes for larger venues, it sounded great, but I seldom got to play that way. It lacked a master volume/gain set up (like...
