    Calculating Shipping Costs

    Thanks so far everyone - glad I asked ! I'll check out FedEx instead of UPS. Four of the five items are large ( seat, sissy bar, windshield, saddlebags, and highway pegs ). I'll have to find out weight / dimensions for the bags and sissy bar combined for this particular buyer.

    Calculating Shipping Costs

    I ended up trading in my old Harley for a new Harley this weekend and I am selling some of my old parts. I've never shipped anything large before so I am kind of new to the process. Someone is interested in my saddlebags and sissy bar and wants to know how much it will cost to ship to his...

After some digging ( keeping in mind this is from 2016 ) there are still 20 million of us still using AOL ( compared to 130 million using gmail ). I was very surprised so many...

    How do you handle amp and effect switching?

    Awesome - I totally nailed it yesterday ! It took forever to set up the presets on the Code. I ended up not using the Zoom at all ( I did miss the tape echo on the intro a little bit but overall it sounded pretty good ). I definitely need the foot switch for the Code - switching presets using...

    How do you handle amp and effect switching?

    Let me preface this by saying I have only been playing guitar for about 4 years. I am currently trying to learn my first song from start to finish.

    How long does it take to fix a guitar?

    Brian, that's hilarious ( that's my guitar in the picture ) ! Funny, I posted this at 1:10 pm, they called at 1:30 pm to tell me my guitar was ready. Just picked it up - everything is as it should be. Appearantly with the Studio they have to replace the whole module. So, I guess the answer...

    How long does it take to fix a guitar?

    When I got back from Texas visiting the in-laws for Christmas, I noticed that my Les Paul Studio no longer produced sound with the selector switch in the bridge position. Since the guitar is still under warranty I decided to bring it back to Guitar Center to get it fixed. I brought it in on 1/2...

    First LP or CD?

    First albums were Ozzy Osborne Blizzard of Ozz (1980) and Diary of a Madman (1981 ) - I was 10 years old. I used to play them on my Mickey Mouse record player. I started having horrible nightmares from the album covers so my friend and I buried the albums in the woods one day.
