    NAD-Fender ‘68 Custom Deluxe Reverb.

    For about 2 years, I’ve been casually hunting for a deal on a vintage Deluxe Reverb, preferably a ‘64 or ‘65. My local shop that deals in lots of used gear recently got in a 2015 ‘68 Custom Deluxe Reverb. Having never tried on, I grabbed my Les Paul and headed to the shop. Two words - holy...

    Just need to get this off my chest -2016 Trad

    Last September, I purchased my first “real” Les Paul - a used 2016 Traditional T in honey burst. Got it totally stock from the local CraigsList for $1,100 USD. It had its share of bumps and bruises, but was in otherwise good shape. Since I’ve had it, the only modifications have been a fret...

    Upgrade my combo cabinet & speaker or get an extension cab?

    I have a 10 watt tube amp combo with a 10” speaker. It’s a Fender Pro Jr cab, so it’s MDF and small. It sounds okay, but certainly isn’t as full nor does it fill a room with sound like a 12” speaker. I typically play at home or sometimes with friends. No gigging. I’m not particularly...

    Props to Carl’s Custom Amps!

    Let me start by saying that I’m not an expert when it comes to the finer details of tone and amplifiers. Here’s my story. I play guitar mostly at home because it’s good fun. I sometimes go to a local rehearsal space where I can crank an amp until my ears bleed. Sometime I get together with...

    1998 Epiphone Dot Deluxe

    I just picked up a used 1998 Epiphone Dot Deluxe, natural, with the case, for a deal. It’s in very very good shape and It plays well. But, the stock nut is garbage ( it’s cut and shaped all wonky) and electronics generally feel cheap and barely work. Once things chill with the virus situation...

    Epiphone ES 335 Pro on sale

    Musicians Friend currently has these on sale for $399. I’ve been hunting for a used Dot. Should I just get a new 335 Pro? Hmmm. Anyone have one of these on the way?

    The lowly old Boss DS-1....

    Lately, I’ve been bitten by the pedal bug. On a whim, I picked up a used old DS-1 at my local shop. Brought it home and gave it a go with my 2016 LP Traditional and Fender Pro Junior. Hot damn this old pedal just kills that classic 70’s rock sound! Riffs sound so good with this pedal. I can’t...

    Recommend me a looper

    I’ve never used a looper and am considering getting one to use as a practice tool. Can you recommend a basic looper that’s not particularly expensive? I don’t need boutique. Thanks everyone.

    Adult Summer Camps?

    Good evening everyone. Here’s my dilemma- I’m a 42 year old married guy with a very busy professional career as an environmental scientist. I played in bands in high school. These days my guitar playing is strictly in a spare bedroom and for my personal enjoyment. I’m interested in playing with...

    GHS Burnished Nickel Rockers

    Historically, I’ve used both GHS Boomers and Ernie Ball regular slinkies on my guitars. Mostly in 10-46. I’ve decided to try some different string brands and string materials recently and just this morning put a set of GHS burnished nickel rockers (10-46) on my 2008 Epiphone Les Paul custom...

    Best OD and/or Distortion Pedal for SS Amp?

    Hello new friends of the MLP forums. For the last 3-4 years, my guitar playing had been almost exclusively through headphones. I live in a small house, and with a family, it’s the only option. In general, I’m perfectly happy with this. However, some friends and I are going to start making some...

    NGD and new forum member

    Hello everyone, I’m new here and thought I’d say hello with a NGD post. A little about me- I played a lot in my youth (13-20 years old), but stopped when I started college. In my late 30s, I started playing again. I’m 42 now. My main guitars in my youth were a Mexican Strat and other shredder...
