    Guitar Center in Los Angeles county PEE-YEW!

    I think GC’s business model no longer works. Since being sold nearly 15 years ago, the chickens have come to roost. They won’t bargain on anything and frankly, that alone is the Only reason to go there. Bean counters zeroed in on high profit items, and no longer stock anything that isn’t. I...

    Why Do Amps Have Tone Controls?

    You guys? Tone controls are necessary, especially if you’re covering a lot of different tones. I like to roll off tone from the treble pickup on occasion. Not a gig goes by without it. I use 4 input Marshall’s usually. The amps hardly ever get touched, once I dial in. That goes for any old...

    2022 Les Paul Standard...worth MSRP?

    With new standards nearing the 3k mark, I would opt for a used custom shop 57-58. I always regret moving a nicer guitar to a downgraded model. If you aren’t picky about certain details, it may not matter to you. I like the neck shapes on custom shop guitars. I also hear a big difference from...

    COVID (Used) Price Madness

    Gibson raises prices every year. They outpace anyone’s wages. It’s definitely at a point where I’m not considering buying anything period. The used market is insane, and goes up every time you look. Vote with your wallet, and stop paying for increases. R9 sales have been flat for decades. All of...

    Why do people say or act like Gibsons are overpriced ??

    Gibsons are expensive, and overpriced. So is everything else. As far as the notion of imports sounding the same, of having the same quality, try again. If you can’t tell the difference, good for you? If you don’t like the pricing, don’t buy it. If enough people feel the same way, the price will...

    Should I trade my 01 R9 for a 2020 Murphy lab R9?

    Tough call.... I’ve had quite a few from the good wood era. I appreciate the hide glue construction, evolved neck shape, custom buckers . Best to judge guitars individually..

    Review by 'Kossfinger' on item 'Marshall model 1987 50w amp'

    I’ve spent most of my years around these amps. Love em despite their shortcomings. Fantastic tones!

    Marshall model 1987 50w amp

    This amp uses a pair of el34 output tubes, with 12ax7a tubes in the preamp. Called a 50w amp by Marshall, this amp evolved from the earlier Jtm45 amps. It uses a solid state rectifier, instead of the gz34 tube, found in jtm45 and jtm50(black flag) amps. This amp has more bite than its early...

    I’m going to gig my Braz R9

    Congratulations on the new guitar. Most people are unaware of the real value of these instruments. They will just be behaving as they usually do. Just practice safe measures. It would be wise to put the guitar back in the case during a break, rather than leaving it on a stand. Other than that...
