    Marshall Mini Jubilee 20W

    Jubilees are NOT 2-channel amps, unless you coincidentally like or get all you need from the shared settings (which usually is NOT) the case.

    When did Black Sabbath peak?

    Volume 4 was the last album of the caliber (legendary progression that stood against any predecessor and arguably bested them, if not in moments at the least). Sabotage was the last album of the collection (canon-worthy, representative of Sabbath firing on all cylinders that had comparable hits...

    Do you believe in owning a Second "Beater" Guitar?

    The only way a “beater” makes sense is in some weird “Roadhouse/CBGB’s hardcore” gig scenario where I’d be using it to deflect beer bottles and finally smash into someone’s face. While that’s my style of music, I don’t even gig, so...

    I need the cheapest blank TRC out there

    Silly putty probably costs what a cheap trc does and looks like foreskin. Not exactly the handy substitute for an understated cover.

    I need the cheapest blank TRC out there

    they put the Gibsons 12’ up in mine. Mistrustful bastards. I should bring a set of epis from the parts bin and do a pup swap as well. Anybody down for an uproarious distraction over there?

    I need the cheapest blank TRC out there

    I like Gibson guitars, almost exclusively so over their copies. I have kept an eye out for their pots/pups/hardware on builds. However, there are times where Gibson provides NOTHING but a financial drain with certain offerings. There is no performance, aesthetic, or structural advantage paying...

    I need the cheapest blank TRC out there

    my time shopping/waiting/attempting/screwing up/remaking + raw materials cost probably makes this the most expensive option out there for the scale of 1 piece. so far I got $7.99 shipped on ebay.

    Other Guitar fora out there?

    I like to visit specific places like MLP for the expertise, but find myself spending more time in places where there is abundant discussion over the various categories of gear (guitar/amps/etc). Harmony Central did the trick during the “myspace age” but shriveled away for whatever reason where...

    I need help finding a Les Paul

    I got through the first page or two and saw some good suggestions by people here. It seems that what you want is not very different from my starting experience many years ago. I had “that” guitar in mind and it was a very risky choice for a beginner (an expensive Jackson RR1). Mine happened to...

    Sounds like it’s consistent w a 490R by visual aesthetic (notwithstanding the awful sound)

    1990s Studio Pup Question

    Just sorting through what looks like something between a major hassle and a moderate nightmare for an online purchase (possibly another thread) pulled the pups. Bridge: Patent 237842 (I suspect checks out as 498T) Neck: completely blank, no stamp and pole pieced appear different (“cleaner” if...

    Pulled the trigger on a Studio SB... any concerns?

    1. negative, as in the guitar did not ship and I had the chance to request/receive pics of the areas beforehand. 2. For clarification, I bought a rather light weight-relieved ‘03 and found out the seller mistakenly listed it as such when it was in fact a chambered ‘09, which doesn’t interest me...

    You are correct.

    Pulled the trigger on a Studio SB... any concerns?

    Turns out it’s an 09 (I wanted weight-relief). Great seller if anyone wants an ‘09

    Pulled the trigger on a Studio SB... any concerns?

    negative... I requested photos (as suggested) “before shipping.” Seller agreed tomorrow. No damage disclosed in listing and none will be accepted. What has me worried is that he cannot read the SN fully due to thick paint on back. I have seen that on other Gibsons, but it is a red flag.

    Pulled the trigger on a Studio SB... any concerns?

    Just bought online. I don’t have very good luck buying LPs on ebay, so I hope this breaks the cycle. 01273xxxx is disclosed S/N.
