    Broken Head Stocks

    Knock on wood, but I've never broken a head stock on an LP. I've not met anyone that has. However, I do know that it happens and probably more than most people want to hear. I have a question, though. Where do they typically break, and what is the the normal culprit? Abuse? Bad grain in...

    Help with home "studio" gear.

    I have a TASCAM 32 track portastudio and am really new at recording. I'm not pretending to be a pro, I just want to record some of my own stuff for my kids, have fun, leave the bloopers in sometimes, or check on progression when trying to learn or develop a new song. I won a tube MIC pre-amp...

    Any one tried one of these?

    Any one tried one of these? I bought it , without playing because GC gave me 180 days to return it if I didn't like it. I will be an adult about it, in other words I/m not going to play it for half a year and then return it for my money back. However , and I hope it comes true, this thing...

    New Guy from N.KY/Cincy area.

    Hi, just trying to be polite and thank the powers that be, for allowing me to join the Forum. I've owned a few LP's over the years but now only have one in possession, a Studio, with Pearly Gates P/U's and one that's supposed to be delivered tomorrow, a Les Paul Traditional Pro V...
