    Replacing min e-tune?????

    I have a 2014 SG with min e-tune that I am replacing with locking Gotohs (Kluson style). Is there any trick to getting them lined up before drilling the screw holes? I've looked on-line for a template, but no luck. Thanks, Dave

    Well, I have been officially indoctrinated into the the cult that is SG ownership. I picked up a 2014 SG Standard in Fireburst at GC on clearance. It has the min-e-tune and I don't hate it as much as I thought I would. It seems to work fine. I will eventually swap it out for some locking...

    Help...I'm starting to like SGs

    I never liked SGs. Didn't like they way they looked or felt. But all of a sudden that has changed, I'm really liking them. Anyway, I found a new 2014 Standard with min etune on clearance at GC for $899. Is that a good deal?

    Peavey Classic 30 Heat???

    I just picked up a used 2013 C30. Used it for the first time last night for about 1-1/2 hours. It got noticeably warmer in the room and the back of the amp got too hot to touch for more than a few seconds. Is this something to worry about?

    Fender Deluxe Palyers Strat Trade for Gretsch 5120?

    I have a guy who wants to trade his Gretsch 5120 for my Fender Deluxe Players Strat. I know they are totally different guitars but strictly monetarily speaking is it a good trade. Thanks, Dave

    My Free Pedalboard

    This is a product we make where I work, no modifications. It's used as an air diffuser. But it's a pedalboard to me. I'll post completed photos when I'm done.

    2012 MIM Sienna Burst Strat ????

    I went into GC last night looking for a strat, I found a 2012 MIM HSS Strat in Sienna Burst. Beautiful guitar and played great to boot. I put cash down for them to hold it for me. I can't find any info online about this guitar. I only see American Strats. It looks just like this American from...

    NGD, Tele

    I tried several guitars to compliment my Les Paul. This one made it past the Guitar Center 30 day return period. Got it used from the GC in Dallas. It's a 2011 MIM Standard. It looks like the previous owner swapped the bridge for the vintage style. I love this guitar, it's a great compliment to...

    NGD ... but I have to wait

    I purchased a used Ibanez AG85 from Guitar Center last night. They had only had it a couple of days, so I have to wait until 12/30 to pick it up. On used gear they hold it for 30 days to make sure it's not stolen. Anyway, here's a pic of one I got from the internet.

    I had a Mustang I for a year and liked it a lot, but really wanted to try a tube amp. I bought a used Blackstar HT1R and a HT 1x12 extension cab at Guitar Center. Wow, the difference is even more pronounced then I thought it would be. I play from clean to blues crunch to Zeppelin style gain and...
