    Have you sanded your knobs lately?

    I have a cheap Gretsch with a long name: G2210 Streamliner Junior Jet™ Club And it came with clear knobs with black paint on the bottom and into the splines. So, naturally, the knobs appear black. Yeesh. I saw a photo of a vintage clear acrylic '52 Gretsch knob and decided I wanted those. It...

    NMMD - 'Nother Melody Maker Day

    2007 Melody Maker reissue I had to wait until the price came up on the Long & McQuade site at 2:00 PM today, and then nailed the Buy Now button. Paid a deposit, and then drove out and picked it up within 30 min. Satin finish, well looked after, and a real wrap tail and not a lightning bar...

    How many amps can I daisy chain via Line Out to Line In?

    Hypothetically, of course. I have several with one or the other. This is just something to chew on as a Friday topic. I also have two cheap 5W amps with dual inputs, so there's a possibility of chaining those two to a third, right?

    New Cheap Amp Day

    It took 6 1/2 months, but my Joyo JTA-05 finally got here from China. They went out of production and became special order with an 8-12 wk delivery. Then the world got shut down. For $250 CAN or ~$190 US, I wasn't expecting more than MDF with a black tweed covering stretched over it. The...

    NGD Vintera '50s Telecaster

    I had other things taking my time since yesterday when it arrived, but here it is, in all its Sonic Blue goodness. I love that fat U neck. I've tuned it up, played it through my 1W Supro. It has twang for sure, but the Supro is a bit dark, so no ice pick. I'll try it into one my other amps...

    Pending NGD

    I'm giving up two Marshall amps (DSL15H, Mini Jubilee combo) for a Vintera '50s Telecaster. The DSL is gone and once the Tele is transferred here, bye bye MJ. The Vintera is a '50s repro without the reissue price, MIM. 21 fret, 7 1/4" radius, 5 hole guard, three barrel (brass) saddles and repro...

    Never mind a new Tele, I'll actually use this.

    My 30 year old, gifted to me zoom lens, a 28-105mm died of bent pins on the zoom. I could have went with the 24-105mm 3.5-5.6, but decided to pay 50% more for the f/4.0, as it has a huge light advantage at 105mm. But holy shit, it's a heavy mofo. I just bought it about 40 min ago, and rushed...

    Is this a decent piece of mahogany for a neck through guitar?

    I've had this chunk of wood for many years, thinking I might do something that is guitar related with it. It's 44 1/2" x 3 5/8" x 2 1/16" I want a Steinberger Spirit copy but with P-90s and a wraptail, and either banjo tuners or Steinberger tuners behind the bridge (installed upside down...

    Wiggle Wang Whammy

    A few years ago or so I decided I wanted at least one guitar with a vibrato setup. I bought a Squier VM Mustang. It was not the Jedi Wobble Master I was looking for. I traded it for a Squier VM Jazzmaster: Then, this year I wanted to replace my long gone Hohner G3T Steinberger copy with the...

    New half-guitar day

    I had a Korean Hohner G3T in the '80s. It was an HSS. This is a genuine Chinese original :rolleyes: built in an Epiphone plant, most likely. I preferred the switching on the Hohner, one mini toggle for each pickup. The Hohner had EMGs, I believe these are the same.This one is wired thusly: 1 -...

    Ultra wide weirdness

    I used my Tamron 10-24mm. It has a full frame mount, but only enough glass for for a crop sensor. On a crop sensor camera, it's effectively 16-38mm, but on a full frame camera, it won't go wider than about 14mm without vignetting (as seen where I zoomed out a bit too far.) Still pretty wide...

    The SV20C is on sale at Long & McQuade, Steve's Music and Acclaim-Music for $1299 CAD, of course. I wish I had some money right now to add one to my collection.

    Used Marshall Cab Day (1974CX)

    Traded in the EVH 5150 III 112. I brought this home and took a few pics :) All of my amps will plug into it, but I have to reach into two of the combos and unplug the built ins. If I took the back of this cab off and took out the speaker, the Class 5 would slide right into it :D

    My First Supro is here!

    It's here!. The store sent the Supro box inside a Fender Acoustasonic box; that gave me a bit of a start. Sure, it's Chinese, but it seem to be very well constructed, with a birch cab, and the power cord is permanently attached. Also, one can unplug the speaker and use the amp as a head. (My...

    Which 112 cab would you keep?

    I might keep one, or I might keep them all. Leaning toward the VOX as a keeper because it can be a closed back with little trouble, and have feet added on one end to use vertically. All are 16 ohm.
