    Vintage Magnatone Custom 280

    I have one of these 280's. It is a full sounding clean amp with a great vibrato circuit. I believe Buddy Holly used this amp. To get drive you need to add pedals. It is an old school sounding 1950's rockabilly amp and not a classic rock amp. It is too polite. This video below gives you an...

    What is this written on the inside of my control plate?

    Good luck. I bought a few cabinets from Joe a couple years back. I went to his little industrial building full of gear in Burbank. I didn't meet him, just his guitar tech. I wish I would have kept the contact info for you.

    All my gear together for the first time in 8 years!

    Never put it all in the same place. Now you lost your ability to deny how many guitar you have.

    Guitars and Divorce

    This is why you need to just roll over and pay the $5K. If someone has to appraise your instruments, they will charge $200 an hour and of course it will take them 10 hours. I have been involved in about 200 lawsuits (work related). Nobody wins except the lawyers. My recommendation is...

    Any BFG geeks?

    I have one of the originals. I really like it. It has a bigger than 60's neck but not 50's big. It sounds good and plays well. It still gets gigged regularly.

    Sell an SG to obtain 335? Thoughts

    For me, the right 335 was a very long journey. I went through 8 before I found the one for me. I wouldn't sell a guitar you love to get one you might not.

    Tele pickups

    If you want vintage-style tones, Don Mare makes the best tele pickups. He has lots of different winds. You can go to his site or youtube and figure out what best fits your style. Based on your criteria, I would suggest the Super Sports, the 0038 (broadcaster) or the Zepotones.

    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    This came off Roman Rist's work bench about 2 weeks ago. I posted some pictures of it already, but here are a couple videos of the guitar. Flamed Korina body and neck. Maple flat top. Multi-ply binding. Just some noodling to show how the guitar sounds. Played through a cheap Peavey...

    Let's see your Roman Rist Guitars.

    Ok, here is another video with some playing. Just some noodling to show how the guitar sounds. Played through a cheap Peavey Classic 30 with no effects. Just shot it on an iPhone, so no special micing. Working the volume and tone knobs for variations in tone. The middle position is out of phase.

    Yes, get it. Roman makes great guitars. I have the first Showhorse and it is awesome. Each of them is custom made so you will have to check with the seller for the specs.

    Another new spot to play

    I think almost all bands are on social media these days. We send out stuff Facebook, Twitter, and snap chat. We also have email lists. We follow other bands and players. We quickly know when a new spot opens up.

    Another new spot to play

    Nice. Good luck with the gig. Once you advertise it, you will be amazed at how many other bands will hit them up. We recently got hired in a similar situation. The manager said within a week, he had about 30 bands submit info to play there.
