    DIY Fender Tilt-Back Legs?

    Has anyone ever made their own equivalent of the Fender tilt-back legs for his/her combo? I'd like to add some to my Blackheart Little Giant combo, but $40 seems a little pricey considering they are just two pieces of chromed metal. I was thinking about a black crinkle or gun bluing finish...

    Alamo amp a good deal?

    Went to a local pawn shop today and saw an small Alamo tube amp for $99+tax. It is a two-channel with tremolo, which works quite well. It sounds really good, no scratchiness in the pots at all, but has a two prong plug. The front lists 55w as the rating, but I'm sure that's a power consumption...

    Scarlett Johansson & a Tele!

    I got home from work today, and I see my wife's new issue of Nylon magazine on the cover on the table. Scarlett Johannson sweetly cradling a blue Tele! Here's a link to the cover shot. There's also a spread on pp. 138 & 139 of her cuddling up next to it under the covers. Yowser! :shock:

    Help needed with removal of overdrive circuit

    I've got a little 10W DRIVE SS amp that use for messing around in my den, but I wished it had more clean headroom. It is single channel, with gain and volume pots, and uses LED's for the distortion clipping. Can I just clip the LED's for more headroom, or do I need to replace them with...

    Auto Primer as Guitar Finish?

    I was just wondering if anyone has ever finished a guitar in just gray or rust-colored automotive primer. If so, are there any cons? I thought that might be a cool hot-rod look - maybe add some pinstriping and a decal or two :smile: .
