    TC Electronics Dark Matter.

    Hi guys, any opinions on the TC electronics dark matter? I play in a rock tribute show and have found at smaller gigs my Marshall DSL 50 isn't driving enough to deliver the sweet spot. I've been using an old Guvnor 2 pedal to warm it up a bit but am not overly satisfied with the results. Was...

    Ibanez LGB 30 or GB 10 se

    Hi. I can't find out too much about the new Ibanez GB 10 se. I'm not sure if it is actually available in the uk or not yet? The LGB 30 is and is a little cheaper. I notice that the GB 10 se has different pups and is slightly deeper. I played an LGB 30 a while ago and loved it. Has anyone played...

    Tonerider Alnico iv in epi dot?

    Hi guys. I have just brought a Korean 1999 epiphone dot. It's ok but the pickups are going to need improving. In my Sheraton I put a Gibson 57 Classic in the neck and a Duncan 59 in the bridge which I am very happy with. Anyway I don't want to spend quite as much this time so I came across...

    I work as a music coordinator in a school and play in two bands. Play gigs most weekends. Got two this week. I wish I could afford to just play but I have a huge mortgage and three kids!

    Bands who ditch the set setlist

    The pianist in my jazz band gets bored of tunes very quickly and before each gig sends us charts and lead sheets for completely new tunes so each gig becomes an excersise in sight reading and improvising over completely new tunes. It can be frustrating because I feel like we are just blagging...

    Genuine Epiphone Sheraton.

    Thanks. I've got a Gibson 57 classic for the neck and a Duncan 59 for the bridge. I intend to use it for gigs. Leave my trusty old Les Paul and 175 at home for a bit.

    Genuine Epiphone Sheraton.

    Lol. Samick factory. Auto correct. I checked out the serial number it is genuine and the spacing of the letters and made in Korea logo all look exactly the same as others on the net so I am not too concerned now.

    Genuine Epiphone Sheraton.

    Personally it's not the colour I would have chosen but it was such a great deal. I tried a new Chinese one in my local guitar shop the other day which was nearly 500 pounds. Got this one for 200! Just about to take it to its first band rehearsal. Sounds ok, gonna get the pick ups swapped. I...

    Genuine Epiphone Sheraton.

    The headstock has a slightly different tree design on mine. The guy I brought it off said it was an American import in Alpine white. I don't know if it is a genuine headstock as there has been variations.

    The headstock is slightly different. The leaves on the top left are slightly thinner and longer than on mine.

    Genuine Epiphone Sheraton.

    Hi guys, I picked up this very nice Epiphone Sheraton yesterday for just 200 pounds. It plays nicely and sounds OK, will be even better when I change the pick ups. I had no doubts whatsoever about its authenticity until I noticed that the e on the pickguard is in a slightly different position to...
