    NOAD - Dean Markley CD60

    I have 3 CD60's and a CD212. Great amps. The jfets for channel switching can go bad, but they are easily replaceable. The only impossible to find parts are the potentiometers. I usually take the pots apart and carefully clean them, spraying them with Deoxit is useless. F&T electrolytic caps fit...

    My "Van Fire" Les Paul

    Nice save! As a vintage VW owner, one thing that needs to do often is replace the fuel lines. They tend to get cooked from the heat, get brittle, and break. I just put all new fuel lines in my bus. I had a close call years ago, learned my lesson.

    Custom Shop Les Pauls With Bad Neck Profiles

    I have a Music Man with an asymmetric neck. At first it felt odd, but once I got used to it, I liked it.

    Cool Z Guitars

    I have a Cool Z ZLS-1 LP copy. It was made by Fujigen and it's quite nice, very nicely made. The bridge and tailpiece are Gotoh, and has Grover tuners. It has a long tenon and a Gibson style single action truss rod. The electronics are pretty much like any other far east import guitar, so that...

    What Did Henry Juszkiewicz Get Right?

    I think Henry and Dave did a great job turning the company around after they bought it. For a number of years, it looked like they were doing pretty well. The Historic/Custom Shop was another great move. It's just when Henry decided to turn Gibson into a lifestyle company and started getting...

    LPF Lily has passed away

    I agree Lily deserves a better tribute than that. With that said, she did stay behind the scenes for the most part. Lily and I had our differences, but it still saddens me she is gone. FWIW, she didn't start the LPF, I did. Dave P

    Can you remember the fx pedals you've let go AND wish you hadn't?

    A bunch of old Electro Harmonix pedals I sold a pedal dealer around 20 years ago, got a lot of money for them but there are a few I should have kept. Sweet Sound univibe, it was huge and sounded great, why did I sell it? Old Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face (2) old D'Armond tremolo units, the...

    Ever Seen an Opening Band Out-Perform the Headliner?

    Saw Armored Saint open for Metallica in a small club in the early 80's. Armored Saint kicked some serious ass, they were heavy and really tight, and the late Dave Pritchard was blazing on his black Jackson. I was very impressed. On the other hand, Metallica came out and was so-so, kind of sloppy...

    Duesenberg Guitars

    That was exactly my impression when I tried out a few. I had no idea where they were made at the time, but I kept thinking they seemed a lot like Korean made guitars when I was playing them. Nothing wrong with Korean made guitars, but they sure didn't seem like guitars I would plunk down a lot...

    No Dean love?

    I's love to have a Dean Uli Jon Roth Sky guitar that Boris Dommenget builds for Dean. Unfortunately the last one for sale was $23,000 and there's no way I can spring for that. LOL Boris Dommenget Guitarmaker handmade Guitars and Pickups

    Zero fret???

    I built this one with a zero fret since you can't put a traditional nut on it. The only thing I never liked about zero frets are that when I bend strings closer to the nut, I always get a 'plink' sound when the string pops in and out of the groove worn in the zero fret. Next time I may try a...

    New Rack Effects....Replifex

    Those older USA made Rocktron units are very cool. I also have a Replifex, and also a couple of early Intellifex and Chameleon units.
