    Silvertone 1488 "amp in case" guitar

    my 1448 [when I was 12] came with ,I guess, the wrong case . I'm sure mine had tremolo..I have one now without tremolo. in poor shape the guitar is good but the case /amp went thru hell. picked it up super cheap so it sits in the man cave as a reminder of my childhood. fun stuff

    Looking for a new versatile amp.

    love my fenders , I have a 63 and a 65 tremolux set. mostly it seems that no matter what set up I use I end up with ''my'' sound.. [what ever that is lol] I had a matchless head for a couple years . never got along with it like this victory.. agree they are like the average guy's boutique amp...

    Looking for a new versatile amp.

    for what it is worth I have a Victory V30 mk 2..and I love it. it has the best amp distortion I've found, the cleans are very sparkly and the amp is a bit bright but it is easily tamed down with use of the gain on the clean channel and turning down the treble.. it has been dependable and I...

    Helix

    my plan was to get the HX FX unit but this LT came up for the same price so I went for it. having fun learning how to use it.. getting past the frustration ..ha. now I have it split off to both my victory head and my '63 tremolux with a reverb pedal on the fender.. space.. getting very pat...

    Gibson Les Paul Junior Finish Issues/Questions

    I figured that since you took the discount you are keeping the guitar , so that is how I would deal with it. not sure about the number but I got a "ColorTone " clear gloss touch-up marker from stewmac. worked well for my project ..you might need 2 for that job ,tape off the area and go slow...

    Gibson Les Paul Junior Finish Issues/Questions

    you could fill it in using one of those touch up pens from stewmac.. just a little at a time , let it dry repeat until its up to the surface and paper it smooth with some 600 grit down to 1000 and polish it. like drop filling a dent..use the clear lac. pen.

    thanks, I'll have my son over today to help old dad understand this stuff.. i never use head phones , trying to get this up to speed for gigs. my son has had a helix since they first came out but he goes thru stuff to fast for old dad ..and he doesn't play out ,just home recording so he uses...

    Helix

    i think its just the learning curve and I'm at pole position one..kind of overwhelms me.. I like reverb to be lush and a bit of delay[all along the watchtower is my hallmark for that and sometimes the old Ce-1 chorus. wah pedal and the rest is nice fender clean with the victory head for my...

    Helix

    all good info , joey [my son] is teaching the old man..he has it down but he mostly just records and doesn't play out much. I'll pass on what you said and we will reconfigure the cable set up. see what happens. I was looking at the helix effects unit but joe's pal sold me his brand new Lt for...
