    Donated parts tele build

    Hi all. I posted in the 'parts wanted' sections that I can't justify a purchase when money is so tight, not something I would do to my family. I asked for donations of parts, I figured I would build one instead of buy one- my guitars have been sold and I have nothing to plink on. I was thinking...

  6. 'ol hank pank


    is not just a funny dog. I traded a teal bandit for a triumph w some issues + 40 bucks. I removed the good sounding but HEAVY scorpion for an old celestion G12H-100. Brought it to me local guitar geeks and another 45 bucks of cleaning and resoldering- POW! BAM! The amp absolutely smokes. I don't...

    small project- need affirmation

    Thinking of trading my strat for a Schecter PT Elite- basically a 2HB w coil taps with a maple top and mahog body, bolt on neck. I have a SD JD sitting around that needs a home. GFS sells sort of a swiss army knife bridge that should cover the HB hole in the back. The guit has string through...

    is it me or is it hot in here?

    I have been coming around here for a while, now. Just recently checking back in. Does this forum seem to be much more 'flamely', less polite and helpful than in years past? Not feeling as friendly a vibe as before. Anyone agree? I am not trying to stir things up, but just voicing my observations.

    I just gotta give some love here

    I finally got to kick the tires on my Peavey Generation EXP. I played it through my son's vypyr 15 watter. I may have to replace that speaker this week. :grin: I LOVE this guitar. It was such a blast. It needs very minor set up stuff. As much as folks love the GFS and SX stuff (I have been a...

    Bad experiences with Music Store- Drome Sound

    Well, I had one today. Drome Sound in Schenectady made me rather angry today. We got my son an Epi 56 Gold Top for Xmas. Being a chip off the old block, he wanted to upgrade the tuners to kluson tulips. So we did that last week for his birthday, plus Mom ordered a set up. Well the first time...

    I just got back from seeing them in Albany- a free show and it was fantastic. Real pioneers, super tight and fun fun fun. I'm nearly speechless. Heroes of mine I thought I;d never see, and I was upfront, dead center skankin away. This old Rude Boy had a blast. What a super band.

    Wow, what a forum

    Hi again everyone. I have made a few of these posts in the past 2 years or so, mostly a 'hi I haven't forgotten you' deal. My life has taken off both career wise and personally in the past 2 years, I have barely touched a guitar. Things are very good and have slowed down enough so I can get...
