    Where did my thread "Whos using Virgil Arlo" go ?

    The Virgil Arlo thread was (in my opinion) an entirely healthy attempt on my part to bring together those already using these popular PAF style humbuckers, with those curious to learn more about them (myself included). The content, to the best of my recollection was good natured, courteous...

    Pedal boards, who would you recommend I take a closer look at ?

    Calling owners of vintage 1959 Marshall Super Lead from 1967 to 1970.

    Is it true that clean headroom available before the onset of distortion/overdrive became less and less between 1967 and 1970 ? And the circuit changes between these years resulted in the earliest metal panel amps of 1970 having no clean headroom to play with whatsoever..? Thankyou.

Both come in potted and un potted versions AFAIK, and the BB1 and 2 are roughly the same in output as the CB, s. So.. Other than alnico type is there anything more to...

    Cream T repro double white PAF's from Joe Bonamaser "Spot" burst #9 1688

    I've just learned that this set of PAF replicas from Joe B's '59 burst are available and wondering if anyone has them? They're available from Matts guitar shop located in France, at least that's the link I got, if it wasn't for the fact that this particular burst sounded so amazing in Joe's...

    A confession with hope of absolution.. If you think I need it ?

    I'm always on the look out for new pickup builders, with a view to offering them as an option when upgrading or customising customers guitars. I buy a set and try them out in our own guitars, and in the case of PAF types I wire them into my Gibson Les Paul's first, if they perform here I can...
