    NGD: Gibson Slash Goldtop

    Aka “Victoria”. A couple trades removed from a White Falcon that wasn’t working for me, I just swapped a 60s LP standard and some cash for another Gibson. 2020 Gibson Slash Goldtop. The other guy already removed the slash signature truss rod cover which saved me the 2 mins. The big 50s...

    NGD: 50th Anniversary Fender American Deluxe Strat

    Well, after buying and selling strats for the last few years trying to find one that worked, and putting together an MJT, my search continued until this came up for a very reasonable price this morning. Not a blemish or ding on her, pretty good for an ‘04. Seller was located about two hours...

    The Midas Touch-Gold Strings

    While Gold on guitars has its haters on this forum, I’m definitely not one of them. Just swapped out EB Cobalts for 10-46 Optimas on a few guitars after trying it out on the LP. In addition to looking awesome (my opinion anyways), I do think they sound fantastic. Although I recognize that...

    I love it when a plan (-ned pedal board) comes together

    After picking up a second combo amp recently, I decided to redo my home pedal board and rig something that would allow me to capitalize cleans from the Fender with the Lead/gain channel on the Marshall. The Radial Twin City switcher seems to have done that and I’m pretty happy overall. The...

    NGD (last one for awhile…) - Gretsch White Falcon

    Having offloaded a bunch of old guitars lately that I didn’t play to free up space, this should be my last NGD for awhile. In theory anyways. Technically bought this a few months ago but just arrived. Friend of a friend across the country who heard I was looking to buy something along this...

    NAD: Marshall Mini Jubilee 2525C

    Recently sold a bunch of gear to make space for new stuff. Usual player equipment addiction stuff… Ended up selling a 93 SG standard, and the buyer loved my Marshall SL5 he was testing it with and made me a very generous offer I couldn’t resist. That said, it felt like there was a void...

    NGD: Gibson 345

    Wanted a 335 for a long time, after a long work trip I played a few, nothing I loved. Got sent out for another couple months follow up, and while there decided I’m past the age of settling for now and continuously trading up to get what I really want. To that end, I found this on Reverb. After...

    Canadian Problems: Buying Expensive Gear off Reverb

    Treating myself after a long business trip away. Wanted a specific guitar (NGD post coming soon), only one available was in Japan and price was right. After paying pretty decently for shipping, just got the bill for taxes and duties. Although the cost was not completely unexpected, I will not...

    NAD: Phaez #2

    Back from a long work trip and my first present to myself just arrived. I was very impressed by my first Phaez (the Jackpot-a 2 channel Vox/Dr Z build) that I had him make a matching amp for some 80s high gain rock. The “Dirty Jackpot” is essentially an AFD clone with a boost pedal that takes...

    NGD (90s SG standard)

    Found a 90s SG on Kijiji (local used classifieds) for extremely cheap last night. Picked it up today, everything worked fine so paid asking price, knowing I’ll sell it in a couple weeks. I don’t particularly need another guitar right now. After finishing daily chores watched a couple movies...

    Trade Day-CS Strat/Slash LP -

    Picked up a CS Strat a months ago because my 3 year old wanted a “red guitar”. Couldn’t bond with it but have a buddy with a Slash Rosso Corsa who loved it. Strait up trade, both sides very happy overall. So much for diversity. My electrics are now 4x Les Pauls and 3xTeles (plus a homemade...

    Les Paul Fakes and people that sell them

    Came across this browsing today. No info in the ad so I messaged the seller. Apparently this is a “special 80s Jimmy Page LP MIJ”. Very rare. That is the rare authentic case. When pressured he went with the Russian Foreign Policy defence (my 4 year old does the same)-deny deny deny, any why...

    I did a thing. Caution, Gold Hardware (and LP) Content

    Bought an epiphone frampton LP about a year ago. Loved the fenix neck on it (more than my 09 Standard) and the 3 Pickup look. But hated the stock pickups and the frampton wiring scheme. So here’s before: And after. Upgraded to a vineham set after spending an hour on phone with Craig. Also...

    Scotch Question/Poll-to drink or not to drink?

    Howdy. I’m not much of a drinker. I’ll even blasphemously admit I don’t particularly care for scotch (good tequila is more my thing for rare occasions). That said, I often receive bottles from work partners/associates. One of those things guys are expected to appreciate, and the thought...

    New Amp Day (couldn’t choose...)

    Between a Dr Z or an AC 30 for the country sound I’ve been shooting for. So I decided to take a risk and split the difference with a Phaez. It’s a 2 channel (Z Wreck and Vox), twin EL 84. 1x12 Cab is rocking a Jensen Jet Tornado. I think it even looks classy enough to stay in my home office...

    NGD: Fender CS Stratocaster Deluxe

    My 3 year old has been demanding I get a “red guitar” for almost a year. While away for work last 4 months, I found this on reverb for a wicked price just before Christmas. To be honest, I was thinking of buying a 335 or 339 as strats typically haven’t done it for me, but my wife...

    New Gear Week (Marshall amp, Spark, Cab)

    So after a week of selling/swapping old and quickly jumping for a steal, my basement setup has quite a new look: A disappointing DSL15 is now the SL5. Which is exactly the high gain I want in a Marshall amp, and a built in 1/5 attenuator is perfect. The gentleman selling the SL5 turns out to...

    Upgrading Marshall? Sell/Trade/Buy

    Hey all, I recently picked up a Marshall DSL 15C. Its not really giving me what I was hoping for and I’m seeing the complaints people have with the DSL line. I’m looking for something that gives me a GNR/The Darkness sound. Unfortunately I’m not in a position to buy a 100W stack as I’m...

    Tips for Storing Amps Long Term

    Hey all, Heading away for work for 6-7 months. Guitars are getting packed up in hardshell cases and put in a big closet downstairs. What do you guys recommend for my deluxe reverb and Marshall 15CR? FWIW I do not currently have covers for either.

    NAD - Les Paul/Marshall Content

    The thread a few weeks ago about “Marshall is to a Les Paul as ___ is to a Telecaster” reminded me that I got rid of my Marshall a while back and pedals through other amps can’t recreate that sound. I also had a Vox AC4 I never touched, so found a guy who took it and $100 cdn for his mint DSL...

    NGD - Black Paisley Supreme

    Finally wrapped this one up. Took a few months for all the parts to arrive from states and have a custom neck built to my specs (thanks to Jesse Brown @ Brown Bear Guitars). This was a project with wife. She picked out everything about it and even named it after her puppy. Overall she’s...

    L&M Fender Month-Battle of the axes winner

    So the biggest Canadian music store chain (long & McQuade) had a playoff format contest through social media last few weeks to determine which is the top fender model on the market (for under $1,300 Cdn). I think the vote went the way most would assume for this site with the Performer mode...

    New Attenuator Day! Fryette PS for 68 DRRI

    After searching for over a month trying to find a decent attenuator in Canada, I’ve finally been able to turn the volume up past “2”. I’m a bedrooom/basement guest room player that mostly gets to jam when my young sons are asleep upstairs, and didn’t feel like buying a bunch of cheaper models...

    Is everywhere sold out of attenuators?

    Situation is that I have a ‘68 Deluxe Reverb Reissue Special Edition. 22W, 8ohm Celestion Green Speaker. I don’t need a fancy $1,000 attenuator with special features, I don’t play venues or record. My deluxe is just a really big bedroom amp that sounds great with pedals but I’ve never been...

    Has anyone here done PRP therapy for shoulder?

    (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) About 6 months ago I took a nasty slide down a small mountain and felt a jab in shoulder but didn’t think much of it. 3 weeks ago while doing heavier close grip bench press (yes probably not smart) re-aggregated it pretty seriously and got an MRI. Imagery showed...
