    They'll never be another SRV.

    There are a million guitar players out there who can play just as good or better (not me) than anyone mentioned in this thread. We all know one or more personally. The only difference is who catches the golden ring at a specific time in history.

    Player, performer or entertainer?

    Alice's Restaurant is what should be played while the condemned is being prepared for lethal injection. Might as well torture them for awhile, they deserve it.

    quick and dirty way to test pickups?

    When testing for polarity you use a Phillips screwdriver, everyone knows that.

    quick and dirty way to test pickups?

    The screwdriver method works great for guitar pickups, use a 4 pound hammer for bass.

    Bored with my Excelsior Pro time to go

    From what I read 800 total for north America and when they come up they go fast.

    They're heavy for the size. I put what I consider a fair price on mine and don't mind driving a little if someone was willing to meet. Shipping could be pretty expensive and like others I just want to watch my dollars plus it's cool to have something you can actually put your hands on before you...

    Yep, also swapped the tubes out with NOS RCA 6V6 and 7025s in the pre amp. I like the Eminence but also have a 15" JBL in an old Fender cab I plug into once in awhile. Great sound. The JBL K140 takes some of the bite out.

    I have an old SS Gibson G10 from 1971 that has tremolo. You can really slow the speed down and it is really nice. I was told the Excelsior can be slowed down by changing the capacitor on the pot to twice the value. Could be worth a try, the way it is now is obnoxious.

    Since I pulled this amp out and compared with the blue and the green in your picture it doesn't look like either of them. But I plugged it in and played awhile tonight. I remember why I like this little bugger now. I may be making a mistake, but if I achieve my goal then so be it.

    It's the kind you don't put in the bong.

    There will never be another SRV. Well, there will never be another Grover Cleveland, what's your point?

    Mow your own lawn

    We got a dime a week to do all the chores around the house. We collected soda bottles and mowed with a push mower. Sometimes those older guys with the ducktails would give you a nickel if you let them know if the cops were hanging out at the end of the street. In 1963 we moved out to the middle...

    Mow your own lawn

    If I would have gotten $25 to mow a yard when I was a kid I could have retired after 2 yards. I remember getting a quarter maybe 50 cents from a rich guy. Hell I was happy with an ice cream.
