    I'm doing it! Going all in on modeling.

    I spent two hours today in rehearsal comparing sounds I can get out of a regular all analog pedalboard and my Allen Accomplice Jr (a fantastic Fendery amp) versus what I can get out of my HX stomp with somebody else's (M Britt) presets through a PA with a high quality monitor speaker. Modeling...

    Played a MIJ Chester today

    through a cranked up AC15 top boost with a bunch of trem and verb. Oh lordy! First, where has that sound / guitar been all my life? It's like the roots version of brown sound! It might be the biggest and in some ways the coolest guitar I have ever played. Second, there is no way I can be...

    Surprise Honey! Today is NGD!!

    I went down to the local gear emporium intending to buy a set of acoustic strings. Up on the used wall were two of these: Taylor Solidbody Standard. I don't think I had ever seen one or heard about them. I do not "need" another guitar, but I had certainly been GASing for something vaguely in the...

    Anyone try a modeler into an acoustasonic?

    I'm still in the thinking stages of a new super flexible rig. The goal is to get good sounds out of my resonator and my electric with one fairly portable and flexible setup, in places that might have minimal or no sound support. I have a Helix HX Stomp for the modeling side of things. My next...

    Selling of pedals question

    I am thinking of getting rid of a bunch of pedals all in one go, probably 5 or 6. I will surely take a hit on the overall cash I can get this way, but I can't be bothered to separately sell and ship a bunch of fairly inexpensive pedals anymore. Anyone done this? Should I include a onespot and...

    Contemplating a multipurpose amp

    Let's say you had ambitions to possibly get yourself one amp to do all of the following as needed: 1. Acoustic guitar 2. Vocals (so, a substitute PA) 3. Bass (nothing real loud, no drummer to get over) 4. Plug in a Helix and use as with electric guitar. As for volumes we are talking small-ish...

    What in the dang heck is this?

    Found on FB while wasting time. This is a mashup I have never quite seen before, always thought it was supposed to be tele parts on a JM body not the other way around. Strangely very appealing. Seller just calls it a Fender Telecaster. Any ideas?

    NPD DOA?

    I've never had this happen to me and I'm wondering if there is something I am missing. I recently bought a J Rockett Millennium Delay on sale at Sweetwater. I think it's DOA but I still wonder if I did something wrong? It says on a sticker covering the power jack "9v center negative only" - I...

    New HX Stomp Day - what have I done?!?!

    I was assured this thing was "easy to use" - not so far!! After an hour or so I had it working so that one button was an echoplex doing slapback, and the other button was a decent tremolo. Then I had a really nice sounding comp in there, but for some reason the left button would toggle between...

    OMG used car prices

    So our 07 Honda Odyssey is reaching the end of it's useful life span (I don't wrench). We went shopping today for the typical "off lease three year old quality car" at around 60% the price of the new model - ZOMG! 43k for a loaded Honda Passport with 33k miles, two years old. A three year old...

    Ideas for a bass cut control?

    Not sure where this might go, so... I recently bought an Eastman T64, it's a 330 knockoff. Frankly it's a knockout guitar that I love love love to play. I could make this my main guitar if I solve one problem. I think it's on the "dark" side of things tonally, which prevents it from being a good...

    Scenic Dog Walking Pics

    Well, it's Fall for us Northern Hemisphere folks, and lots of dog lovers are on here (makes sense, telecaster lovers generally have good taste). So let's see your scenic pics of your pooches out in nature! This is Charlie, he's 5 months old and I'm gradually letting him go off-leash for short...

    NGD Eastman T64/vt Casino style

    I had a thread going where I was on the lookout for a "4th electric" - not something that could meet my "needs", but a fun extra guitar, something different. Well, none of the candidates worked out but yesterday I brought this one home! It's a fully hollow 330/casino style that comes stock with...

    Which one would you pick?

    I might buy a new (used) guitar soon, I have the cash ready. I don't really have any "needs" at all so I'm more about picking up something fun and cool that if I don't end up loving I can resell for little to no loss. These are all roughly the same price. The candidates right now are: 1...

    GAS / No GAS conundrum

    So, I've been saving my pennies for a while now and will probably sell a guitar and a few pedals in the near future - the gear savings is separate from household finance, and I'll probably have $1500 or maybe more to spend on something soon! The problem is, I really don't have a fixed plan to...

    Puppy zoomies!

    Hi gang: Anybody experienced young puppies (3 months) with the "zoomies" before? My little Charlie Brisket has a funny little issue. Every evening around 7ish, he eliminates and then goes into an absolute out of control frenzy - not angry, but so hyper as to not seem "playful" anymore. Sprints...

    NPD (New Puppy Day)

    This is Charlie Brisket, a 13 week old rescue! My first dog since I was a teenager (in the 80s) and my wife's first ever. He is a love. Lots of puppy energy and housetraining, fo sho. But very happy to meet other people and dogs, and his weirdest behavior is an inordinate love of grass and weird...

    What MFX is best for me?

    I have cash set aside for a multi-effects and I'm suffering from analysis paralysis! Here's my deal: I don't use a ton of effects. Mostly just tremolo, and amp reverb! I mess around with a volume pedal too, I'm kind of obsessed with faking pedal steel sounds. I don't even like hitting a...

    NGD and a tuner question

    Hi Gang: Yesterday I made an impulse buy - an Eastman Grand Auditorium sized acoustic, with cutaway and Fishman piezo and hard case (plus a fresh set of strings and a strap), for the whopping big old price of $200. It has been played and has several minor scratches and dings, but structurally...

    Eastman guitars - necks info

    Hey there - I am strongly considering doing something I swore I would never do - buy a new guitar online without ever having played it. When I have done it in the past it has always been a crapshoot and that is kind of unavoidable, I know. But Eastman is coming out with a new model that really...

    I finally played a good example of a BF Princeton

    And...I get it! That not-quite-so-scooped but-still-BF tone is really what I dig. Super compact, loud but very manageable. I have no need for another amp like that, and I have no idea why it costs way more than a Blues Jr except for 'markup' but I really did love the sound and found it super...

    Wiring on a hollowbody

    I don't know which forum is best for this, so I'll just try here. My hollowbody, an Epiphone Sorrento Reissue, has developed an intermittent cut out or short on the neck pickup. This guitar uses Gibson USA mini humbuckers in a typical Gibson wiring layout. Based on the "wiggle stuff around"...

    Am I up for a kit build?

    I really really have a hankering to try an amp kit this summer - specifically the Allen Classic 10. It's a SE circuit, no verb or trem, volume / tone / boost switch. I think the takeoff point was a 5f2a with a SS rectifier and a 6l6 or el34. On paper it sounds just like what I had always...

    Headed to the DFW area tomorrow

    I'm SOO happy to be taking an actual trip for fun! My wife and I are vaxxed up and heading out to Dallas (Arlington, near TCU) to see a friend and take advantage of our new post-C*%($ freedom. I am hoping to catch some live music and possibly browse a used gear shop or two. The shops I visited...

    Able to just...play it?

    I have had some interesting little practice sessions recently. Like a lot of people, I "sort of" know the fretboard for soloing. I mean, I know a chunk of it stone cold, and in other places I can dance around the chords. I have enough theory to sort of get me there. I'm an intermediate player...
