    Would a Historic Gibson make you sell your standard?

    My brother and I have some late model 50s and 60s standards. Also between us we have R4, R7, R8, R9 and R0, in some cases more than one. Consistently our view is that today's Standards are excellent. But the Rs are always lighter and that is a key thing as 9lbs is my comfort cut off. The...

    Has anyone solved the 1099K issue?

    Yes documentation (evidence) is everything. Still I find it simply wrong that most everyone should somehow be required to engage tax advice. Here in the UK one doesn't even have to prepare a tax return for earned income under £100,000. When a return has to be prepared it takes minutes not...

    Has anyone solved the 1099K issue?

    I wouldn't work yourself up too much about it yet, as the forms for 2022 are not yet designed. If I got a 1099-K right now and had to deal with it in a return tomorrow it would be Schedule D (Capital Gain/Loss) in my instance. In next year's forms there should hopefully be a provision for...

    Has anyone solved the 1099K issue?

    1) The first part I put in bold - it's capital gain not ordinary income. It's important to have an understanding of the basic tax terms of art. I haven't had a math class since I was 15, but I did taka tax class in law school and it helped to clarify my thinking. 2) I think you can only do...

    Has anyone solved the 1099K issue?

    The reason I stripped down your post to the above examples is that they get to the real point here, namely the outrage of having an increased paperwork load, which given the complexity of federal tax forms, already has a huge risk of error for which the filer can be punished financially and even...

    Has anyone solved the 1099K issue?

    I would have thought 1040 Schedule D - Capital Gains and Losses. At least that's what buying and selling is, a capital gain or a capital loss, just like with stocks, real estate, etc. I wouldn't treat it as "ordinary income " unless buying / selling were my business, in which case I would...

    1965 Fender Reverb Unit 6g15 prices?

    In my family we have the following Reverb Units: 1962 chassis with modern MOD tank; 1965 all original; 1993 Reissue. When I first bought the reissue, I knew immediately it was lacking versus vintage. But once the "C10" modifications talked about around the net were made to it, I was unable or...

    Larkin Poe Live

    This. I was very impressed as are many here with the covers, but I then turned to their original material and was actually surprised at how detached it came across from their cover material.

    French press for coffee

    That's good as it would save me having to use the thermos once the coffee is made. The issue is that until about a year ago I needed to see how much coffee I was putting into the carafe and only the Bodum allowed me to see the base. Yours wouldn't have worked---but now I have a precision bean...

    French press for coffee

    I've used a French Press for 30 years and drink close to a liter of coffee a day. My coffee is generally very well received, the secret is also to use quality water if you happen to lve in a place like London where water quality is not optimal. It also help that I go through a deal of effort...

    HA HA HA HA - SoundCloud - HA HA HA HA

    I got something similar for putting up a file of noises in connection with an acoustic I was selling. Your spam beats my spam in the spelling department. The sad truth is they know how desperate so many are to make it in the arts and they prey on that vulnerability. My wife is an artist and...

    NGD 1953 Telecaster Blackguard

    That dark circuit sounds like what Gretsch adopted from 1957 when they started using Filtertrons. Gretsch folk call it the "mud switch" but it's actually a great thing because when it's not engaged (which is pretty much always the case that the mud switch is not engaged), the pickup(s) go(es)...

    NGD 1953 Telecaster Blackguard

    I wouldn't know a blend vs tone pot as with a Telecaster I don't ever use anything but the bridge pickup on full open tone. Mine is a mid 54 neck with a mid 53 body so here is a photo of the electronics if that helps with your question.

    NGD 1953 Telecaster Blackguard

    Congratulations on being 2.5 decades more clever than I particularly in terms of amp choice (when I was your age I played a mid 60s 6120 through BF Twins only). I had a number of amps set up in the studio that I very much like, such as a 65 Gretsch 6156 Playboy with 12'' Jensen and 6973 power...

    Welcome. I have a 53 as well (photo to the left) and I am sure yours is a thing of beauty as is mine.

    Selling my '73 Tele - is this a mistake?

    I think the reason the headstocks colour differently than the wood on the necks is because when Fender changed its finishing standards from nitro to poly in the late 1960s, the decals on the front of the headstock didn't apparently adhere well to the poly. So Fender always continued to put nitro...

    Selling my '73 Tele - is this a mistake?

    Also another new Telecaster along with the amp; not a trade for the amp alone is what I read to be the deal on offer in the OP.

    Selling my '73 Tele - is this a mistake?

    You have succeeded in doing something I was never able to do: Get a 70s Telecaster of any variety (standard, custom, Deluxe) with a rosewood neck. I will get you that guitar and amp you want and throw in some Euro for your Tele. The problem is that the UK being out of the EU has mucked up...

    '58/'59 Strat neck profile

    I don't have exact experience with late 50s maple neck Fenders....but... an April 59 rosewood board Esquire and 59 rosewood board Strat I do have both have the exact same neck. About as thin in terms of heft of any guitar I've played save for my 61 Epiphone Texan whose neck feels quite similar...

    All Fuzz ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Kickass Fuzz Pedals and all Fuzz related

    My favorite fuzz pedals in order: 1) Built in Fuzz on certain late 1960s Italian made Vox guitars. It says "Distortion" but it's fuzz. 2) Roland Bee Baa (I don't have a photo as it's my brothers even though it came as a freebee when I bought my 71 Strat. 3) Marauder - Modern pedal made by a...

    A new Beatles clip live and it is

    Dick Dale wasn't the only one to have amps invented for him, as it were! I think that amp was also in the Rain video although it's really just flashes if so. I had forgotten about that amp till I saw the OP clip. I thought maybe an German Echolette like the PA speakers look to be but then I...

    A new Beatles clip live and it is

    Lennon screwed up in kind by playing during the first solo stop. I wonder if he stimulated Paul's error as he seemed to be ribbing him before the song started about how the first two verses were always reversed between the live show and the record. No organ for the second solo in I'm Down, but...

    A new Beatles clip live and it is

    Vox 7120 amps. They were very new at that moment. I love 1966 everything and this Beatles with both Epiphone Casinos with original finish is very emotional for me. I wish a few more moments of the the Rickenbacker 12 string had been taken/survived. Many thanks for the post.
