    The Person Chappell Talks About in His Special Has Died

    If someone started even a single thread of racial humor in here, it would get squashed immediately. The trannie thing has been deemed fair game for some reason, and that dead horse has since been beaten into oblivion. Moni never complained about it before - not once. It was always about the...

    The Person Chappell Talks About in His Special Has Died

    Moni is a trans woman. Several members here know this through PMs, including at least one mod. Obviously MLP is not a very friendly place for someone like that.

    What did Henry J get right?

    He was in a no-win situation from the start. How do you innovate when your customers are so shackled to nostalgia that they demand technology that is half a century old, with zero improvement or updating? Imagine if you went to buy a brand-new car and the controls and features were all straight...

    Finally..........Allman Brothers in a box!!?

    Looks like he's got two other pedals besides the Peacock: The "Black Hearted Woman" and the "Statesboro Bluesman." All riffing on the same basic tone, no pun intended.

    NGD Damaged Guitar - Thoughts?

    If the shop is "willing to work with you," that probably means they would refund whatever it costs you to get that scratch repaired. I would negotiate a fair refund from them, then either DIY or have a luthier fix it.
