    I bought this little beauty yesterday. A Fender Pro Jr IV. Very simple. Very loud. Very soulful.

    I picked this up used but mint with a hardshell case for $350. Plays beautifully and sound very Strat-like in positions 2 thru 4.

    Prism/Rainbow LP Finish

    Does anyone know the story behind the Tribute Prism/Rainbow finish? I figured it had to be a signature at first, but I'm not seeing anything. It's an odd finish imho. I can't look away. I think Santana has a few sigs finished similarly.

    Simple Mod/Pleasant Surprise

    One thing I've always done on every LP I've owned but two, is to remove the pickup covers. The two I didn't mod were gold. Anyway, I finally got a zebra neck and black bridge. The neck is reverse on top of that. Oh simple pleasures!

    New Tele Day

    Next to the Les Paul, Telecasters are a favorite of mine. I've owned several. Fender, ESP (LTD)… but yesterday I was fortunate enough to buy, for me, the best playing Tele to date... A G&L ASAT Classic. Wonderful build quality. Sounds very good too.

    Carl’s Customs for Hot Rod Deluxe III

    Ok I asked this on a Strat forum and value my Lester brethren opinions too. Have any of you used a Carl’s Customs volume box (goes in the effects loop) or his speaker soak (goes between the amp and speaker)? If you have, what say you? Can both be used together?

    Any of you guys pull the covers off the 490/498s in a newer model Gibson? I’m thinking of doing so until I decide on a replacement set. How do the bobbins look? Cheap? Good to go? Was there an ungodly amount of wax or was it an easy clean up? Pics if you have them would be appreciated and...

    Gibson No Show for 2018 NAMM

    I just read a blurb from MusicRadar confirming Gibson as a “no show” for the 2018 NAMM show in Anaheim. I guess they’re focusing on the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas.

    Southern Rock Tone

    I’d like to put a set of pickups in a LP that can achieve that Marshall Tucker, Blackfoot, Blackberry Smoke tone but can be pushed into hard rock territory with a little heat added to it. I posted the same question on the Seymour Duncan forum since Duncan’s are all I have experience with as far...

    I’m generally a tube amp guy but they can be a hassle, the whole startup ritual, over powering at the house and just plain heavy (78lbs AC30CC2). I went in search of a smaller easy to lug around practice amp. I tried 15 plus desktop/low watt amps with the 4 and 10 watt ACs at the top of my...

    [/URL][/IMG] I know there’s a million out there but I had to have one. Not the most expensive but... my plans are to Creamtone her out top to bottom. I got tired of the AC30CC2 hassle so I also grabbed a BOSS Katana for jamming at the house. The Katanas are badass for $350!
