    Tell HR, the Director, of "F" it...?

    My last day on the job (high tech Silicon Valley job with 50k+ employees world wide) is Friday (after ten years). Six months ago our group went through a lay-off, then re-orged. I was placed under a new manager. Long-story-short, she's a stark-raving alcoholic. I absolutely loathe this woman...

    Strat Switch

    Looking for a solution here... I'm used to my Les Paul and my Tele. I like my highly modified MIM Strat and have replaced everything on it (PUPs, electronics, etc.) over the last eight years or so. I still have one problem... I hit the selector switch if I'm not careful with my strumming...

    Need Recommendation Please

    MLP-ers, I just bought my Son a keyboard (with drum pad) and it came with software to run the keyboard, etc. for his Windows machine. He's not in to guitar, but I'm super excited he wants to create some music! He'd like to be able to do multi-track recording via the drum pad, the keyboard...

    Dual 90 degree 10+ foot guitar cable?

    Hey MLP-ers! My Les Paul really likes the 90 degree cable end (nice and flush, plus it sits on the stand well). I also like the 90 degree cable going in to and out of my pedal board. The ideal solution? Dual 90 degree cable!!!! However, I cannot seem to find one. I don't want to "make"...

    Pignose Help Please!

    Hello all, I picked up a used Pignose (the small, portable battery one) for practically nothing. I had a gift certificate, so the thing cost me about $10 out of pocket. One week in to my delight the thing stopped working. It won't work with batteries or an external power supply. I'm stuck...

    Compressor or...?

    Good day, I've been reading about the merits of a compressor pedal; it interests me. I have some specific issues I'd like to solve and one concern though. I've read through the forum but have not seen answers to these questions (in part I have, but here it goes anyway): 1. I have about 8...

    Wife Snores like a...

    ...freight train!!!! She's been doing this for the 20+ years we've been married. It used to not bother me. However, 15 years ago I had major back surgery; I'm now a light sleeper. So, It's been about 15 years since I've strung together four hours of solid sleep, let alone eight! It's...

    Fulltone OCD and Fulldrive2

    Anyone using this combo? I have both (just got the OCD) and was wondering how, if any, folks are using them both either WITH each other or separately. If with each other, then how? Which first, what setting (I imagine compcut on the FD2 as a boost?), etc.? Thanks! Al Rig: Gibson LP...

    Backup Solid State Combo?

    I've got a Blackstar HT Club 40 and really like it. I esp. like the clean tone with some pedals for a nice, classic rock sound. However, I've had some trouble with it in the past. It seems to have been sorted out, but I still wonder about it every time I gig with it. So, I'm wondering if...

    Quit Band? Need Advice.

    So, I joined a band as the lead vocalist and second guitar player two months ago. Of the 30 current songs I've now learned 26 of them. The ONE song they liked that I'd played before they have yet to learn. That's besides the point. I dread going to band practice. There's just no intensity...

    LP w/J-Page Wiring Q and Intro

    Hello, I just stumbled across this community. Good content! Two weeks ago (after a two month wait, long story!) I picked up my 2003 Gibson Les Paul Studio. I've had the Jimmy Page wiring done with Whole Lotta Humbuckers installed. Great sound! Lovin' the LP (Strat doesn't get used much...
