    NAD: Blackstar Studio 10 6L6

    I've been looking for something that'll give me Fender-style cleans at home volumes to go with my Marshall Origin ... and this new 1x12 combo from Blackstar will do nicely. (I haven't taken a photo of my own yet, so this is from Blackstar's website) It's one of those amps where you plug in...

    House of Tone P90 Early Impressions

    I recently got a custom-built LPJ clone from a local luthier, which came with a single House of Tone P90 in the bridge. I've played a few guitars with P90s in, but this is the first time I've actually owned one myself. In this guitar, this P90 is an absolute monster. It's thick, it's fat, and...

    Opinions on Peavey Classic 20 Mini-Head?

    I'm looking for an affordable amp head that does Fender-style cleans. Fender doesn't make one, so I'm looking at other brands. The Peavey Classic 20 Mini-Head looks promising. Anyone tried one of these? What did you think?

    NPD: Fender Pugilist Distortion

    Picked one of these up yesterday, to pair with my Tele. Just started playing around with it this afternoon, running through the T-DLX green channel into an IR of a C12K with an R121. Early days yet. So far, I’m getting some nice singing lead tones from the neck pickup, without it being...

    NAD: Synergy Amps

    Well, my Kemper buyer's remorse finally got the better of me. Got the chance to play through some Synergy modules, and couldn't leave the shop without a couple of them. Picked up the T-DLX and Metro Plex modules. The main reason I'm looking for a new amp is to get Fender-style cleans. I...

    NAtD: Two Notes Torpedo Captor

    The missus recently bought me the Two Note's entry-level attenuator - the Torpedo Captor 8 ohms. It's a cracking little unit. Unlike the bigger Torpedo units, this thing is as no-frills as you can get. Fixed resistance, so buy the one that matches your amp's output Fixed attenuation of -20db...

    Any Bacchus *and* Gibson RI Owners Who Can Help?

    Hello! I'm starting to research my next Les Paul. I've already decided it'll be something with P90s, and I'm thinking of the Bacchus Duke Master. There isn't a lot of helpful information online, and there's none local to me to try before pulling the trigger. I'm hoping someone here can help...

    New Kemper Owner ...

    In 2012, after many years of frustration and disappointment with digital modelling, I threw it all out (no-one wanted the stuff, even when I tried to give it away!) and went for a nice juicy valve amp for my little home studio. Went through a huge bunch of gear trying to find what worked for me...

    NPD - Friedman Dirty Shirley

    Ever since Shawn Tubbs posted his demo, I've been eager to get my hands on a Dirty Shirley. My local store finally got it in stock today. I was not disappointed. Here's Shawn's demo: At my local store, we plugged it into a 65 DRRI, set everything to noon, and just wow. Straight away, it...

    NPD (Soon): King of Tone

    Logged in to do the books for this month ... and there was this email waiting for me. I'm finally (finally!) at the top of the waiting list for a King of Tone pedal from AnalogMan. After 2 years of waiting (I applied for the waiting list back on July 19th, 2015), I'd honestly given up ever...

    Historic 2nd Hand Prices Around The World ...

    A recent discussion on where to buy RIs in the UK brought up an interesting point on prices. It seems to be very expensive to buy guitars in the UK compared to both the USA and Europe. That got me thinking. What are 2nd hand prices (and availability) like around the world? Should we in the UK...

    Could We Get Member Locations Back, Please?

    A person's location (e.g. Texas) used to appear with their name and avatar on each post. Since the update, the location isn't shown there any more. (It is available if you click through to their profile page.) It'd be really handy if we could get that back, please. It's a huge help when looking...

    Anyone tried a Sunken Treasure Les Paul?

    It's old-stock discount season atm, and I've got my eye on one of the Sunken Treasure LPs. Just wondering if anyone here has one, and what you think of it.

    NPD: Bluesman Roots 57 LTD from Sigil Pickups

    I've put a set of these in the 2015 Les Paul Custom that I bought at Christmas last year, replacing the 490R/498T set that the Custom came with. (These modern Customs are much better instruments than the stock Gibson pups let on.) Couldn't be happier with the Bluesman Roots 57 LTDs. They've...

    NGD: Les Paul Custom

    Managed to snag myself a Custom in the Boxing Day sales. This thing is a monster. Heavy as hell. Very snappy tone, thanks to the fake-ebony board. Sustain for days. I'm looking forward to ripping out the pickups (Gibson 490R and 498T) in the new year and replacing them with something much...

    NPD: Monty's Guitars PAF Replicas

    Recently had a pair of Monty's Guitars PAF replicas fitted to my 2013 Sig-T. They're my first set of PAF replicas. I can only compare them to the Seth Lover's that I'd used in the Sig-T for the past year, and the Custom Buckers in my 59 RI and my 60 RI. I'm delighted with the new pickups. To...

    NGD x2: 2014 R9 and (almost) Plain-Top R0

    I've been hankering after an historic reissue for some time, and what with all the changes coming this year, decided it might be my last chance to actually own one. No idea why, but for me, the iconic Les Paul is a 1960 plain top with some kind of slightly faded cherry burst. Couldn't find a...

    Guitar Guitar in the UK has just announced that they're dropping the price on the 2015 range. GUITARGUITAR - Clearance I don't remember similar discounts on the then-current range this time last year.

    NPD: MXR Carbon Copy

    Popped into the local guitar shop today looking for a reverb pedal, and came out with a delay pedal instead :shock: The main reverb pedal I was looking at was the TC Electronic Hall of Fame. It just didn't do anything for me at all. I thought that it was sterile, lacking any warmth at all...

    NPD: Bare Knuckles Emeralds

    After a lot of um'ing and ah'ing, finally ordered a set of covered Emeralds to replace the 57 classics in my Sig T. This will be my first pickup swap. I hope that I don't cock it up! I really like the 57's, except these have a brittle top-end to them that isn't there in any of my other Les...
