  • Found an old post of yours. Been looking for an Ibanez TR 80 bass in black with a red turtleshell pickguard for quite some time. Do you still have it?

    Not really thinking about selling at the moment. Maybe in the future? Anyway, there are many, many Ibanez basses with the same PJ set up at the $200 price - why does the TR80 appeal to you? I mean it’s a good bass for the price but not a unicorn.

    Because that is the exact same bass I learned to play on and there are many special memories that I have playing on that. I am aware it's not the best bass ever, but I would like it purely for sentimental purposes. I didn't own it when I learned on it, it was my science teacher's bass and doesn't want to sell it. You don't have to, just thought it was worth a shot because I cannot find anyone like it anywhere else.

    Ok, that’s a good reason! As I mentioned, I haven’t been thinking of selling, but if I change my mind, I’ll contact you.
    I just picked up a '64 Gibson GA-8T and am a bit confused about the tube lineup. The schematic I have shows a 6C4 in the V2 position but I'm not sure that's correct. Your amp looks exactly like mine and I was wondering what tube is in the V2 position in your amp? Thanks in advance!

    Had no luck finding reliable schematics. All seemed to be earlier four tube versions w/ 6C4 power tube. Mine has 5: V1 & V2: 6EU7; V3 & V4: 6BQ5 (EL-84); V5: 6CA4 rectifier. Schematic for GA-18T and Epiphone EA-35T have been closest match. Would be happy to share, either as a thread here or via email, as you prefer.I
    I drove a 1950s IH stakebed briefly once, with some IH inline six in it. Ton and a half? Two ton? Can't remember. But it had a very low first gear, and it was screaming at 45-50 mph on the highway. But it could move a big load with a small engine...
    Me too. We have a small farm, but our Toyota T-100 is big enough for what we do. Still, every time I see the old stake bed and grain bed trucks running around here at harvest time, it makes me want an old truck way bigger than I could ever use.

    Man, a '46...I wonder what something like that would have for an engine? Some variant of the stovebolt inline 6? If so, must have been geared LOW.
    Love the truck in your avatar...is that yours?

    Nope - I wish - '46 Chevy cabover flat bed- it was on a lot in Kansas, just happened by. Love those old trucks.
