    Gigboard

    A friend convinced me to give amp modeling a try, so I picked up a Headrush Gigboard. I don't play out much, so finally had a chance to really test it out last night. I've got it running in to an Orange Pedal Baby and then my 2x12 cab. It sounded very good. Right now I basically have it set up...

    NGD: PRS CE22

    About two weeks ago I sold my PRS S2 C24 (just wasn't getting along with the pickups) and bought a CE22 off Reverb. Well, that guitar arrived and it was a hot mess. Electronics had been completely gutted. Since it was advertised as original pickups I sent it on back and when my refund process I...

    NGD: McCarty

    Last week I sold my Bluesman Vintage Junior style guitar. It hasn't had much play time in the past year, since our singer died. I was on the hunt for something different. Les Paul sound, but not Les Paul ergonomics. The SG didn't quite fit the bill, so I was going to try something different...

    2012 Bluesman Vintage Nomad

    Up for sale is my Bluesman Vintage Nomad single cut, single pickup. This is as close as you can get to a vintage Les Paul Junior without paying vintage prices. The D.Allen pickup is amazing. Such a huge range of tone from it. To my knowledge, this is the only single cut, single pickup Nomad to...

    1983 Les Paul Studio

    I've been tossed the possibility of a first year LP Studio in trade on a guitar I have. Google seems a bit all over the place on these guitars. Some say it's a 50's neck, others a 60's. Right now I'm thinking it might be something I go with just to flip. What is the general value on an old...

    NGD PRS S2 Custom 24

    I loved the tone of my SG, but never really gelled with the guitar. Not really sure why. Loved the neck profile, it wasn't headstock heavy, never really bothered me. But it wasn't my favorite guitar. I had a chance to make a trade for a PRS, and after giving one a try at Guitar Center, I went...

    That is one dead tube

    Went to crank the TH30 and had no sound. Checked the HT fuse and that was good, so started pulling tubes....

    Pedal wiring help

    Lately my EHX Holy Grail has been acting up. When I kick it in I'll have massive volume drop. I've read that there's volume drop when you really kick up the effect, but this is something new happening. Using my old settings I'll be playing happily along, step on the reverb...and there goes my...

    How to tell when tube effects loops needs replacing?

    So if you have a tube driven effects loop in your amp, how do you tell when the tube is failing? I usually keep my tuner at the end of my signal chain, which winds up placing it in my effects loop when I use one. When plugged in to my Jim Root #4 the tuner works fine, but when in my TH30 it has...

    Bad output jack?

    So last night during rehearsal my SG failed me. Saturday it was rewired for 50s style and all seemed well. Then last night I put it on the stand for a minute. When I picked it back up...no sound. Nothing at all. That cut rehearsal short and when I got home I opened up the back and started...

    NGD 2011 SG Standard

    Well, finally got a trade offer on my Strat that I thought I could live with. Dead stock 2011 SG Standard. Supposedly this is the katalox fretboard. I dunno, if I hadn't been told different I would have sworn it was rosewood. Whatever it is, it feels great. Neck is super comfortable. Not sure...

    What do you think of this trade

    Put my 2003 American Standard Strat up for trade. Got an offer for a 2002 SG Special (ebony board, half moon inlays) that has been upgraded with 57 classics. I would think his trade value would be a but below mine, especially since I'm including a hard case and he does not have one. What do you...

    Orange fans, your input is desired.

    I love the Orange amps I've got. The Tiny Terror is just a fantastic amp, and I've been happy when I've had a chance to gig my TH30. The Jim Root #4, well a god amp, would be the least favorite of my three. It's voiced just a little darker than I'd like. So, should I see about trading it in for...

    Leveling up: Blues edition

    OK, so my basic guitar background is cowboy chord strummer for the longest time, then a break from guitars. When I started back 5 years ago I decided to take real lessons, but my instructor moved and finding time for lessons has been challenging. Plus, honestly, I do pretty well if I can find...

    Question on SG 61 Reissue

    Yes, yes. I know there's a section for "Other Gibsons" but all the cool cats come to the backstage anyway. On to the question...locally there's a Gibson SG 61 Reissue for sale, or possible trade. Dude is looking for a Strat with a rosewood fingerboard, which I happen to have. I really do love...

    Killer gig on Saturday

    Let me give a little background leading up to this gig... We were set to play at a retirement community. The age range here is pretty broad...some people younger than our singer (a retiree himself) and one woman who is 95 and dances to every song. We'd done an acoustic show there previously...

    Value of LP Studio project guitar

    I'm looking at what is either a 91 or 92 Les Paul Studio that is in project status. Guitar is obviously well played and has what is described as a stable head stock repair. At the minimum the guitar needs a good cleaning, as well as a new bridge and toggle switch replaced. Tuning pegs are...

    Holy Grail Volume Drop

    Howdy. I've got a EHX Holy Grail, which I love (in theory). However, lately there's been a volume drop when the pedal is engaged. And not a slight drop, either. We're talking I'm practically gone from the mix. I'm planning to open it up this weekend and see if I can spot a failed connection, but...

    So...my last gig

    On Friday my band went a played a shared gig with another band (our keyboardist and lead singer are with both groups). The other group is basically a glorified sing-along. I sort of had my doubts about this gig as it was in a retirement community. Not assisted living, but a generally older...

    Ngd!

    I should have taken pics before I tore this thing apart. Picked up a parts telecaster today for $80. Almost passed on it, as the electronics were pretty poor and the bridge was not right. But the neck was great, so I went ahead with it. Stripping it down now and so far the body seems to be a...
