    Cheap Japenese Copies a lifetime ago.

    Hi guys, Been away for a while but I've been having some fun catching up on some threads. Since becoming "double-five" at New Year, I think my nostalgia gene has kicked in big-time. I've become all weepy chatting to some mates about my first electric. I'd be interested to hear of anyone (in...

    Nova System: Volume in FX Loop

    Hi Guys, I have searched without success to see if anyone has a similar problem, so I apologise if this is an old chestnut. I recently bought a TC Nova System which I gig from time to time instead of my pedal board with my Dr Z Maz 18 NR . When I use it in the front of the amp (I run the amp...

    R6 Questions

    Hi Folks, I just got myself a new 2009 R6 for a great price. A very odd thing with the pots though. They all sit quite proud of the top and I assume they put long shafts in there. I have tried to find info on the pots in the 2009 R6s but can't find anything on the searches; I am sure I read...

    Paul Comes Tumblin' Down

    Hi Guys, Been away for a while - what with teaching, building web apps & gigging I've had little time for MLP. Last weekend, I was finishing a sound check at a gig, and after I replaced my R9 in his stand, I caught my foot in the cable...... ..... down he fell. I was sick, afraid to look...

    Lucky Escape on Monday

    Still can't believe I dropped my R9. Came right off the strap lock at rehearsal on Monday night. It was the upper bout lock that came undone - just at the minute my hands were holding a sheet of music. It was like slow motion as the headstock made it's reckless descent toward the floor. I...

    Went to Florida and bought some ...

    ... Chucks! Heard you guys talking about then a couple of months ago, so I had a Chucks binge - bought two pairs. Is it the beginning of the end of my midlife crisis?:slash: Or is it merely another installement of the cultural Americanisation of the UK which started with Sergeant Bilko...

    McPauls Unite!!

    Borrowing the idea from Tom1965 on the Squawkbox, I think it's about time the McPaul users from Scotland should out themselves. So if you are Scottish, or are living in - or have lived in - Scotland, to quote Roger Daltrey, 'Tell me who the fuck ARE you?' Quietly now, let us anticipate...

    It's All About the People

    After several abortive attampts at geting a new singer, we auditioned a female last week. After two songs, we were all riding the crest of her wave. What a bloody pair of tonsils this gal has! End of the day though, I looked around at the money we all have invested in top quality gear, the...

    Stairway to Heaven Moment

    Of course we've all done it haven't we? Played the intro to StH in a guitar shop? Also of course, I haven't had the balls to do it for over twenty years, but I was in Guitar Guitar in Glasgow a couple of weeks ago with my son. There was a nice twelve string on a stand which he wanted to play...

    Tonepros AVR II Saddles

    Anyone ever tried to replace these? I over-filed (chewed up to be precise) the 1st string saddle, and the string is dead. I decided to swap them all out for graphtecs, but I just CANNOT get those little grommet buggers loose. :mad2: Anyone know any tricks, workarounds, the name of the patron...

    Calling Orlando

    Any MLPers in Orlando? I'm taking the kids there on holiday in early July. Been there a couple of times before but never found any good music stores. I'd appreciate any advice from guys with local knowledge. I'm looking to maybe pick up a bargain. Cheers John

    I Bloody Hate ...

    ... auditioning singers. We're doing this tonight (auditioning singer/guitarists), and I suppose I'm just stupid, but I find it really difficult to show any enthusiasm if the chap/chappess comes over as sh*te early on. It embarrasses me greatly if someone is a lot worse than they think...

    MXR M108 Problem

    Hi folks, I just got myself one of these - and after just half an hour it seems totally amazing in between my guitar and amp. However there is something rattling inside the case, so I removed the two silver screws at the bottom to investigate - only to find that there are still another four...

    Blackstar Artisan 30 Combo

    Anyone had any experience of this amp? I bought one a few weeks ago (got a really great deal) on the strength of how it sounded with my Tele. It's really easy to dial in great sounds with the single coils, in fact almost impossible to get a bad tone at all. It's been more of a challenge with...

    Ugly Historics?

    Having just joined today, I read Boleskinhouse's initial post on the "Do You Actually Play?" thread. He - in tongue-in-cheek fashion - mentioned his "ugly 'burst". It got me to thinking that I spent a whole lot of cash on mine (UK prices are horrific), and although I love him dearly; and...
