    NAD — Gibson GA30-rvs

    I had one and thought it sounded really nice. I bought it on sale. The weight was too much for gigging in the end and I traded it in for a Dr. Z head and cab. Mind you, this was before neo speakers.

    Tell me about your Thinlines

    I bought this last summer. A Parallel Universe Magico with gold foil pickups. I always wanted a thinline. It‘s lightweight and sounds wonderful.

    The Marshall SC20H/SV20H/2525H 20 watt owners club.

    What is it about the 2525H that makes you prefer it? That it’s a head or the way it sounds, or something else?

    What's The One Piece Of Gear You Can't Live Without?

    So besides my Martin M-21 Steve Earle, since the OP is about effects, I’ll have to go with the Rattler+ with a turbo switch, from Jam Pedals. I like it so much I bought a second one.

    What's The One Piece Of Gear You Can't Live Without?

    Hard to say. Guitar, cable, amp - all essential. Let me think.

    Missing Terry Kath today

    The title is Street Player: My Chicago Story. I didn't get the impression that he's bitter. Of course it was very hard to accept being fired. He tells his side of the story about how he was "voted" out of the band. I borrowed the book from the library, otherwise I would quote from it. The...

    I have read Danny Seraphine's bio. He confirms what Hendrix said about Kath.

    Help: S-H-S Wiring - How to cancel the Hum?

    Since you want the middle to be bright, have you considered mounting it on an angle, like the bridge?

    Help: S-H-S Wiring - How to cancel the Hum?

    Thanks @Deadman1 I chose the middle because I don't play jazz and I find myself using the middle pickup on my Strat quite a lot. Also because I like how the stock Tele neck pickup sounds. The humbucker in the middle sounds good!

    Help: S-H-S Wiring - How to cancel the Hum?

    I have this setup with a 5-way and hum-canceling in positions 2 and 4. The SD Little ‘59 has coil-splitting. The cap is stock. I didn’t install it so I can’t help with the wiring.

    Dating in your 30’s

    I was 54 when my wife and I split up. It took over ten years, until just a month ago, to find someone that didn't keep me in the friend zone, as my son described it. I moved to a different town last year where I met a friend, of a friend, of a friend. One lady let me take her out for a year...

    New Custom Shop Terry Kath tele

    Terry Kath modified it to personalize it and to truly make a perfect guitar, the way he wanted a guitar. I like Terry’s playing and still listen to the Chicago records from that era, but I don’t understand why anyone would want this guitar when they can mod one or make their own partscaster.

    Dating in your 30’s

    Truth is important if trust is to be established. I’ll go a few steps further and stress the need for a willingness to be vulnerable. Add to it taking responsibility for your mistakes. Be willing to apologize and ask for forgiveness, even if there’s blame on both sides. Likewise, forgive if...

    Bob Dylan Bios

    One that I enjoyed is No Direction Home, by Robert Shelton. Another is by Howard Soanes, Down The Highway. Heylin has written more than one Dylan bio but I haven’t read any.
