    New Old Traynor Day!

    Well, I have always wanted to try a Traynor YGM3 after hearing and reading good things about them over the years. Supposedly a hand wired, Canadian made DRRI killer.. Last week one of the fine gents at my local L&M tracked one down for me in Thunderbay that had supposedly just come back from...

    Billy G PLaying Through a Brown Faced Fender.

    I have not run across this footage before but thought it was pretty darned cool. The amp looks like to be a brown faced Super but not entirely sure. Sounds great to me though :) Any thoughts?

    New Old Amp Day Fender Twin Reverb 74, 75?

    Bought this old road warrior home from my local L&M today for $500.00 Cdn and so far I am pretty damm stoked :) Someone had stuck/screwed stick on vinyl trim to the front of the cab but it all came off without tough much grief. Cleaned up fairly well with some elbow grease. Only issue is the...

    Something Orange This Way Comes..

    Been on a amp shake up kick lately with me starting over from scratch. First up was a dream amp. The Marshall Vintage Modern 50 and now this little guy. I've always loved the thick, warm sounds of Orange amps and reading about the Rocker 15 combo I was determined to try one out. Turns out my...

    Slightly Delayed New Marshall Half Stack day

    Picked up this Marshall 2266 Vintage Modern 50 and the the 1960 cab locally and I am really pleased with it.:wow: I have been trying to get one for many years now and to have one available locally was just too good to be true. From vintage plexi to hot rodded jmp the tones are all there in...

    Two For One New Amp Day (Lunchbox Goodness)

    Picked up both of these little guys over the past couple days used and I am very impressed with both :) The Micro Terror I became interested in after watching Johan's recent video for it. The Traynor Darkhorse was for sale locally by a really nice gent for $225.00 so I had to pick it up. My...

    New 2017 Trad Day "Tobacco Burst"

    Yes, you read the tittle correct :) I too thought these only came in cherry, antique and honey burst. Seems that Long and Mcquade had a special run done up for themselves but did not properly list the specs or the correct appearance on their website. Hence these flew under the radar. Same specs...

    1953 Fender Champ and Friend

    Went to visit friends at a local music shop yesterday and got to see something you don't run into everyday. A customer had decided to sell his 53 champ and lap steel. Each item is going to different homes but they will be well loved. I asked if I could snap a few quick pics :)

    Early Kiss Photos From Outside Gig. Great Snapshot in Time

    Got these pics from an old friend of mine on Facebook of this early Kiss gig and thought I would share with my brother and sisters on MLP. I am longtime fan but I have never seen these pics before. Hopefully folks will like them :) 18278454_10155346748704169_4091717978554274038_o by marsten...

    New Old Gibson/Epiphone Amp Day

    Picked this up at my local Long and McQuade yesterday for the princely sum of $250.00 Cdn.. So far I really like what I hear. Someone has done some maintenance on it over the years and replaced the stock speaker with a Emi Legend 1028 10" alnico speaker. Pots are all quiet, tremo and...

    A bit of cheer up from Magic Sam

    I'm off this week with my kids for a bit of rest and relaxation and I should know by now to stop trying to keep up with the news sites.. With all the heavy things going on in the world these days sometimes it pays to go back to the music that inspires one to play in the first place.:)...

    New Old Marshall Cab Day

    Went to my local Long & Mcquade to browse around a bit after work and found this well loved 1965B cab from the early 80's if I had to guess. Asking price was $200.00 with the original Celestion G10L35 speakers so I figured I had nothing to lose. :) Sounds great with My Dsl 40C and hoping to...

    Is this Clapton/Beano Footage?

    I was watching a new "Who" video compilation from the years 65-67 which has some footage from "A Whole Scene Going" show which aired Jan 5/66 In the opening credits there are two sections which sure looks like Eric playing his fabled burst. Perhaps I am wrong but it sure looks cool at any...

    NGD 2013 SG 50's Tribute

    Well.. I swore I wouldn't do it but for $199.99 Canadian I couldn't help myself.:naughty: It showed up today in the factory sealed box. Fretboard was very dry as to be expected but besides that it had minimal fret sprout. After I oiled the board and changed the strings she was pretty much...
