    Aging hardware on the guitar?

    Or a beer and a coke. The phosphorus acid in the coke will do it's job after a day or two.

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    Back in the day QA wasn't much of a thing, so values from parts had high tolerances and huge spread within these tolerances. Also climate conditions like ambient temperature and humidity within half a century also plays a part how much electrolyte and therfor capacity is left in the...

    Why do people say or act like Gibsons are overpriced ??

    It depends on each model, because Gibson and Fender have different diversification strategies. Lowend Gibsons like the V/Explorer B2 models start at ~1k like a MIM Fender but Gibsons are still US made. In this price range Fender offers better quality, even if they're made in Mexico. On the other...

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    Well, a new handwired likely sounds way more like the vintage gear when it was new back in the day, all the time before the caps electrolyte dissipated over time and resistors lost value from the heat ... 1959HW/MR1960AHW/MR1960BHW $3599 for the entire handwired stack ...

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    Why would somebody do this? It's neither a vintage original Plexi nor a bargain, because a brand new 1959 hardwired made in england plexi and a pair of brand new hardwired 1960s made in england cabs, with brand new celestion made in england greenbacks goes well below $5k ?

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    Right. Gonna play it via my headrush into the marshall full stack and record it with a Shure SH55 via my t.mix board (which should get back from repair next week). The Shure SH55 is optimized vor voice, so it might emphasize mids a bit more. I wouldn't go for vintage gear, not knowing how...

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    If you send me a mp3 file of your raw guitar output, i'm gonna play it thru the plexi full stack next week when it has arrived with the settings you want (as long as it's not too loud, due the nursing home on the other side of the street) and mic it with my Shure SH55.

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    I'm usually playing via my Headrush pedalboard modeler into a pair of Laney LFR-212 FRFRs, or one of my kids small valve amps (Laney Cub8/Vox AC4-C1-12). But there always was this: I need to own a plexi full-stack once in my life time. I know, the plexi doesn't make sense, i won't be able to...

    Gibson quality going down the drain again ...

    That's why i bought a 'authentic Gibson' case for $200 instead of a not so authentic chinese one for $50. But quality doesn't differ by $150

    Gibson quality going down the drain again ...

    ... got my new Explorer case today, that i've ordered almost a year ago (mid may 2020). So i was quite happy when the parcel arrived, until i opened it. Since when do the grips on gibson cases do look and feel so shabby or someone simply forgot to add a strip of leather on the grip ? What it...

    NGD Fender American Ultra Stratocaster SSS/MN Texas Tea

    All my US made guitars were a mess when they arrived. My Gibson Explorer i had to return because the cavity was too shallow for the pickup and my Les Paul needed some serious tweaking to get rid of the fret buzz while maintaining acceptable string action. But they're still my favorite guitars...
