    Great Deal

    If you are looking for a G&L, Dave's Guitar has them for 30% off. Leo Fender invented the Tele and the Strat, but after he sold Fender and started his new company, he couldn't use those names, of course, so the Tele became the "Asat" and the Strat became the "Legacy." So an Asat is sort of a...

    A 7 pound 13 ounce bundle of joy came into my world today...

    Did you think it was a baby? I bet you thought it was a baby :thumb: Instead, it's a 2018 Tribute. It has a slightly wide, flat fretboard, and relatively thin measured from front of fretboard to back of the neck. It's sort of a bit like a shredder neck, but not so pronounced as say, a...

    $1695 for a mint-condition demo model Memphis ES 335... I saw a satin cherry one for 1495 OBO... What's up with this? This is less than half price at a big-box store. For some reason, Chicago Music Exchange is blowing them out. I must have this... :drool...

    Shipping tube amps

    Guys, I have seen recommendations about taking the tubes out before shipping a tube amp, but I've never had a problem in the past. I wasn't aware that this is done until recently. Is this worth doing, you think?

    Roar! The Most Dangerous Movie Ever Made

    Holy crap, I've never seen anything like this before... I stumbled onto this surfing around Youtube. It was made in 1981 and got re-released recently. It is roughly about a big cat researcher living in Africa, but really there is no plot- just about 100 lions, tigers, panthers, and cougars...

    Social Media and the Loss of Privacy

    I'm surprised by how much information people routinely share on Facebook, a ridiculous micro-account of their day on Twitter, and even on places like our site. Maybe "horrified bewilderment" is a better description than "surprised." I am one of those people who routinely has used PGP to...

    Which analog delay?

    I want to get one, and I've narrowed it down to either a Carbon Copy or a Moog Minifooger. I like the Moog's features, especially the expression pedal capability, and it sounds a bit brighter in the videos I've seen. What is your favorite analog delay?

    What's your favorite cable kit?

    I am using a Planet Waves kit that I got on sale a couple of years ago and it seems to work well, and the angle plugs are not too bulky. What are you guys using to connect your pedals?
