    NGD 1968 Gretsch Streamliner

    Ohhh, this is a nice one! From initial messing it looks like it hasn't been played much, just honest checking on the headstock and a bit of binding discolouration,. but overall in really nice shape. I have popped a Bigsby on it, no holes needed drilling so all good on that front. Has some nice...

    NAD (Sort of) Mesa Boogie Lone Star

    Hi all! Just got this the other day, love it so far! The cleans are great (I am lucky enough the have a Fender Twin and I like it as much, if not a little more) and so far the gain seems interesting, still dialling that side of things in. I have come from a Bluesbreaker so having all these new...

    Les Paul Supreme - Words fail me here

    Just seen this on Facebook posted by what looks like a luthier. I dunno, what's your take on this one guys? He says the wiring was faulty on a Supreme so instead of pulling it all out through the over sized jack plate he's made a cavity cover. Looks bad to me, even the holes in the cover are...

    NAD - Fender Twin Amp Pro Tube Whatsit Thingy

    I wanted that Fender valve noise for a long time and after trying various amps went and bought this. Came in a full flight case and was regularly serviced as it came from a pro band. I got this as it is usable at lower volumes and has gain channels, I like to use the first gain channel...

    So here is a life lesson - Don't do what I do, ever. Live by that one simple rule and you'll be alright. I decided I wanted a Bigsby, so I looked around online and found a guy selling a Harley Benton Les Paul with a Bigsby and Vibramate for £120 - Bargain! I don't want or need the guitar...

    Valve bias - Your opinions

    Hi there, I have a Blackstar HT Stage 60 which I really like. I'd like to put some nicer tubes in there but I am now reading about the amp needing biasing and that I should take it to a certified Blackstar shop. So, I guess my question is, how do you guys approach this? What went from a simple...

    NGD - Martin DRS1

    I needed a decent acoustic, shopped around and came to the decision to get this after trying loads. It has a lovely rich warm sound, maybe due to the Sapelle as it is Mahogany pretty much. Solid body, Stratabond neck (which I am a big fan of) and after a setup it is amazing, low action and...
