    Allman Bros, Gov't Mule and Umphrey's Mcgee all in one weekend!

    I couldn't have asked for a better Labor Day weekend. Spent both Saturday and Sunday night at Red Rocks (best concert venue in the world) for ABB, Mule, and Umphrey's McGee! Bob Weir and Ratdog opened for ABB on Sat. and I was underwhelmed by them. But then ABB came out and tore it up for 3...

    Multiple levels of goodness!

    They have been killing this song on "country" radio, but I quite like it. Anyway, I just came across the video for it, and noticed that he is playing what looks to be a very nice R9 and thought some of you might enjoy it. Also, in case you don't notice (:laugh2:), there is a rather...

    Are my ears playing tricks on me?

    This is so weird, but lately I have been noticing when playing my R8 that in the neck pickup position notes sound flat. It has always been a lot more noticeable when I have my Tube Screamer engaged. Originally, I thought it was old batteries in the Tube Screamer so I took them out and just...

    New Slash LP Standard!

    I was at Guitar Center today to grab a present for my dad and the new Slash LP caught my eye. I was surprised that they still had any, so I thought I should give it a try. I played around with it for a while and liked it a lot. But it was a little scratched up (dammit GC!). The guy came and...

    Static pop on my R8...

    Hi Guys - I have been noticing annoying static pops on my R8 lately that are bugging me. I think they have always been there, but I am just now starting to get annoyed by it. I searched a little and found some hits for reducing hum, but nothing on static pops. What happens is, I play for...

    Someone talk me out of getting a PRS Singlecut

    I have been gassing for a PRS Singlecut for a couple of weeks. I finally got the opportunity to play one yesterday - it is the SC245 in dark cherry burst with gold hardware and Brazilian rosewood board. I have to say, PRS seems to put things together flawlessly, and it played great. The...

    Whoa! Fender amp prices!

    Is it just me, or did the prices of new Fender amps generally just take a huge crazy jump? A new DRRI is now listed at $949, Hot Rod Deluxe at $699 (both about a $100 increase over just a couple weeks ago) and also the Blues Jr. (NOT the NOS Tweed) at $479!!! Holy crap! These seem like...

    What kind of wire for grounding pots?

    I am going to be replacing the pots and caps in my R8 with RD superpots and Vitamin Q's from HolyGrail soon. I am going to take the stock parts out left intact and insert all of the new stuff. My question is, can I use braided wire for the ground wire? The stock ground wire appears to just...

    I want to get some reflector knobs for my new R8 but all I can seem to find are the gold knobs with GOLD metal insert. I want gold knobs with silver metal insert. Anyone know where I can order a set with the silver insert? Or do my eyes deceive me and all of those pretty ones with what I...
