Strings rusted to the nut, neck straight, cut the old strings off, polished the frets and oiled the board ~ this thing is a beast ~ Alnico II''s or 36th anniversary is where I'm leaning on pup replacements.
There's a whole VIBE to this guitar and I am digging it.
I need to "de-cluter" my office (my working area for some time to come it seems).
Have several amps tube solid state hybrid that i am reluctant relocating to - the attic OR a loft in the garage - NC weather
Should I vacuum seal them? Shrink wrap? Throw a dehumidifier packet in there...
Are any of y'all exclusively using a load box with studio monitors as your everyday jam?
I said to my son the other day I couldn't remember the last time i heard a real speaker in person.
So I fired up my M-75 + H-75 Scumback 2x12 and damn it if the Palmer and the two notes don't sounds quite...
I have bought and sold tons of items off of the internet since it began, but recently 2 eBay and 1 reverb listings i was "approached" to sell offsite using something called grabr -
I said no way have a nice day...
Be safe guys...
According to what I've ready this its a mid to low level model from the 90's, made in china finished in japan.
I don't know who was overseeing the QC at the china factory but this 20 year old guitar plays better than any low level gibson or mid level epiphone i have ever played...
I tried to record rain and thunder yesterday, but what recorded was only seconds followed by silence then second of rain then silence again.
I tried it with scarlett 2x2 and 1x2 with audacity and reaper on osx - all exhibit this behavior.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
EV Mic > scarlett > MAC...
I was Raleigh so I went by GC while they were putting up plastic sheeting over all the gear.
This was in the corner, so i decided to take it home.
I'll probable do a tone test with this while waiting for the rain to stop on Sunday.
Be safe during the storm.
I purchased this used in “good” condition with Gibson hard shell case via GC online for less than the price of what a husk body would cost
I went into this thinking, if i don’t like it i have 45 days to return it - all good
Out of the gate this is what we’ve got:
The action was WAAY too low...
If I plug into an external cab the reverb works flawlessly
If I use the combo speaker the reverb squeals and adds noise weirdness
What the heck is causing this - I'm thinking interference, but not sure which type where
