I don't think Don is actually talking about doing anything like that, he's a long time member and he knows better, but the mental gymnastics are tempting!
But I agree that with all the counterfeits and licensing issues, TDPRI doesn't need any potential headaches and will likely take a very hard...
The license Fender grants to Squier is non-transferable. If you remove the logo, you remove the license.
Technically you could say, "It was at one time licensed by Fender", but you'd be on shaky legal ground at best.
That and what Lonn said!
JJ 12ax7s are now $39.99 for a single tube. That is, if you can get them.
Last year I sold my two Fender Red Knob Twins that had a dozen 12ax7s each... They were too heavy for my geriatric physique, so I was happy to see them go to younger players.
Shoulda' waited just a little bit longer...
Forgive me for dusting off this older thread, but I found this YouTube video on the topic very informative.
Also, Blanton's is available again at my local bottle shop for $59.99, but only in person, no online or mail order purchases.
It used to be $39.99, so apparently the manufacturer has...
Strymon is an innovative pedal company. All of their products consistently deliver high quality tones with a good sense for knowing which features to include without drowning customers in needless bells and whistles.
I just wish they weren't so expensive!
A low mileage 2018 Sr400 just showed up on my local Craigslist yesterday... And today I find this thread!
Very cool bikes... One of the few kickstart bikes still on the market... And the new ones have fuel injection too! I definitely want one!
A few months ago I stumbled across a very interesting YouTube channel called, "Greg's Airplanes and Automobiles".
It's basically the pet project of a commercial airline pilot who likes aviation history and muscle cars... And he knows quite a bit about both.
As I am also a long time fan of the...
Congrats on your decision to be healthy.
Talk to your doctor.
Smoking is a peculiar habit. I.e., The act of burning medicinal plants and inhaling the smoke.
Certain substances have serious physical side effects of withdrawal, and may require a substitute or treatment to...
As a potential buyer, we all know there are scams out there.
It's easy to reply in a way that let's the seller know you're for real.
E.g., "I'm interested in your Peavey amp, is this the 210 or 115? Do you know if it has a tube guard installed in the back, and if so, is it the Peavey guard...
That's crazy! And Blanton's is good old Kentucky Bourbon. I used to drink Jack Daniel's Single Barrel, and that was about $40 a bottle too. Checked local prices on the Jack Single Barrel and that's $45 now. It was always more consistent than the Blanton's too. But that was part of the fun...
Used to buy this stuff for $40 a bottle. I like bourbon but rarely drink more than one or two glasses a month.
Recently went to restock and discovered the price had quadrupled!
I still can't wrap my brain around MIM Standards being $699.
Not intended as a complaint...
Congratulations on finding a good guitar that works for you!
While you might not be as cool as Leonard Nimoy dressed as Spock sitting on his 1964 Buick Riviera... John Mayer might be.
Doubtful perhaps, but Mayer's alright. :cool:
It sounds like you have already found what you were looking for, congratulations!
I didn't find the ME-80 any more complicated, but I have owned the GT6, GT8, and GT10 as well as a bunch of interations of the ME, including the original ME5 from the 80s.
The GTs drove me nuts at first. But...
You're headed in the right direction.
Buy two ME-80's and be done with it.
The beauty of the ME-80 compared to the other Boss Multi Effects is you can save all your user presets to the cloud, and if your ME-80 then gets run over by a tour bus, you can just get a new one, and download all your...
I was in the middle of a motorcycle deal on FB marketplace. Don't have any other way to contact the seller. I like FB marketplace better than Craigslist or eBay. But I'll survive. It will be interesting to find out what actually happened, but it's fun to speculate in the meanwhile. I'm not...
I agree that the practice of labeling things as "Made in USA" when they were actually assembled in the USA of foreign sourced parts did not start in the guitar business. Some companies did it more than others, but if a significant part of the instrument was in fact made in the USA, then those...
I have a Lite Ash Tele and a Lite Ash Strat, both MIK Fenders from the mid naught years (04, 05, etc.) Nice guitars!
They were never truly manufactured here. But Peavey fibbed about it, and lots of people want to believe the fib because it makes them feel better.
It's basically Chinese...
