    NAD: "JTM and Beyond" Marshall clone

    I stopped into a shop in my hometown the weekend before last to browse around when I saw what appeared to be a Marshall JTM-45 in a 100 watt size head cab. Intrigued, I asked the guys working there 'what's up with that JTM-45?' They proceeded to inform me that it was one of three prototype...

    WTB: Vox Pathfinder 15R

    Due to a recent split, I no longer own my Pathfinder amp. They are one of my favorite home practice amps and I would very much love to purchase a new one. Must be the 15R version with built in reverb. If anyone has one they are looking to sell, please let me know. Thanks.

    Bought this "Bumblebee" partscaster yesterday

    Somebody was obviously a Van Halen fan. I traded some stuff to Music Go Round yesterday and walked out with this. Unknown make Strat body, Fender MIM Strat neck, Seymour Duncan JB humbucker. It's a ton of fun to play and the JB, which I've never tried before, sounds great.

    NPD: Manlius Hot Rod 59/Landmark PAF set

    After much back and forth with whether to swap out the stock VH-3 humbuckers in my Burny Les Paul Custom, and which ones to choose if I did decide to swap, I ended up with a Hot Rod 59 bridge and a Landmark PAF neck from Manlius. Mick was super helpful and patient with my numerous questions and...

    Tell me about the Super Distortion humbucker

    In another thread, I posted about an '89 Burny Les Paul Custom that I just grabbed. I like the stock pickups fine, but I have a major itch to try a Super Distortion (in this case the Manlius 70's Super D, because Mick's pickups rule and all of my main guitars use them) in the bridge position of...

    NGD: 80's/90's MIJ Burny Les Paul Custom. Pics...

    After so many years of wanting a white Les Paul Custom with no way to justify several grand for a vintage or Custom Shop Gibson, I finally made it happen. This Japanese Burny is an amazing guitar and a total player. It has its fair share of dings, and the finish has become a really nice looking...

    Trade: my Fender Mike Dirnt Precision Bass for your Burny Les Paul Custom?

    I've always lusted after an aged white or black finish Les Paul Custom. Vintage and Custom Shop Gibsons are just too far out of my range. But I've been eyeing certain MIJ models like Burny, Greco and Tokai, which seem to be on par with Gibsons in quality at prices that normal folks can afford...

    Can anyone identify this ES-335 copy?

    I recently got this nice ES-335 copy in a trade. I was made fully aware beforehand that it had a fake logo and was not a genuine Gibson. It is an awesome playing and sounding guitar so I didn't mind. However, there are no stickers or serial number on it anywhere so I have no clue who the actual...

    NAD: Ceriatone Plexi 100 Super Lead

    This popped up on Craigslist and I couldn't resist. I had been thinking about getting a Marshall 1987x or a JMP 2204 but they all seemed to be anywhere from slightly above my budget to stupid expensive. Then I saw this. Handwired version of the '73 metal face Super Lead circuit, with an added...

    *SOLD* Sound Sounds Marshall Supa Fuzz Mk.2 clone

    This is a Marshall Supa Fuzz Mk.2 clone built by Sound Sounds. It's essentially a Tone Bender Mk.2 with a few component value differences for a fatter tone. Uses three germanium Russian transistors. It has a bias control by the input and output jacks, so you can tweak it to your liking. Pretty...

    Marshall Lead 12 with custom Sourmash 1x12 cab and Celestion G12-65

    I've decided to let this vintage Marshall Lead 12 amp go. It has served me very well as a great sounding home amp, but I haven't been using it much since I got an attenuator for my larger amps. This one is from 1984 according to the serial number. I installed the chassis into a custom built...

    Mojotone 5E3 Tweed Deluxe with Celestion Alnico Blue

    This is a fantastic sounding replica of the 1950's narrow panel Fender 5E3 Tweed Deluxe amp, by Mojotone. The 5E3 is/was famously used by guitarists such as Joe Walsh, Don Felder, Billy Gibbons and Neil Young. The dual volume controls are very interactive with one another, and the tone control...

    Tell me about the tweed Double Deluxe

    For the last year or so I've owned a Mojotone 5E3 tweed Deluxe clone. I put a Celestion Alnico Blue speaker in it and I've been astounded at how great it can sound when dialed in. However, I have often found myself wishing it sounded a little "bigger" for lack of a better term, maybe with a tad...

    NAD: '65 Fender blackface AB165 Bassman

    I ended up trading a YBA-1A head and a bass I wasn't using evenly for this, and I could not be happier. The serial number on the chassis dates it to 1965. Tube chart says AA165, but I'm almost certain it is the AB165 circuit as the channels seem to be in phase with one another when jumpered. The...

    NAD: Mojotone 5E3 Tweed Deluxe

    This Mojotone 5E3 build was at a local shop for months with no takers. When they lowered the price I couldn't resist despite not needing any more amps. I'm really liking it so far! I popped the back off and it was loaded with a Jensen C12K speaker (ceramic, 100 watts handling), a 5751 in V1...

    Intrigued with 18 watt clone

    There is a handbuilt clone of a Marshall 18 watt TMB head that has popped up and I'm thinking of grabbing it. Unfortunately I can't go check it out beforehand. I love the sound of old Marshalls, specifically the original 1987 Lead and 1986 Bass models as well as the JTM-45. And my current...

    Anyone know where to find a head cab for an AC30HW?

    I experimented running my handwired Vox AC30 into a closed back 2x12 last night and LOVED the results! Very Marshall-y in the Hot mode. Anyway, I clearly prefer it in head/cab format, but my wife loves playing through the combo. So, selling it to get the head version isn't an option. I'd like to...

    NCD: Emperor 2x12

    I've been going back and forth in my head about getting a 2x12 cabinet so I wouldn't have to move my heavy 4x12 as often. Then yesterday I found this used Emperor 2x12 for a good price that I couldn't pass up. I haven't gotten to play through it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. It currently...
