I loved my Paul Reed Smith S2 Custom 24 for about three or four months. Now it sits in its case longing to be played.
I started making my own guitars during my Covid-era term of unemployment. I really haven't played my "store bought" guitars since.
Just got a Marshall Origin 50, and I am very pleased with it. It sounds sounds awesome.
I was a little worried about it being too loud, based on some of the reviews and forum comments. It's not too loud for me, primary because I prefer using a pedalboard into a clean amp. I was playing with my...
1965 Fender Telecaster - Blonde https://reverb.com/item/41854446-1965-fender-telecaster-blonde?utm_source=android-app&utm_medium=android-share&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=41854446
Looks too good to be true to me. It's supposed to be a 1965, but it's got no fretboard wear. Very little paint...
Personally, I like a mid-pushed tone in my amp. It cuts through better and sounds better in the mix (though not so much on its own). Being that all my amps are already middy, adding more mids never sounds good to me. I have tried to like screamers, but I just don't bond with them. On Marshall...
Update: Reverb responded and automatically sided with the seller, saying "they had some issue with the pricing,"
If it was $3 I could understand, but $207 rather than $320 sounds like bait and switch.
So I responded to Reverb, "So I can do this too? Sounds like a good strategy to get more for...
Update: I heard back from the seller. They said the price they posted was incorrect due to a glitch in their system.
So I escalated it to Reverb. I filled out s form and explained what happened and asked whether the seller was allowed to up the price after the sale went through. I said it...
I snapped up a deal last night on Reverb - a Vox AC4-C1-12 for just over $200. I always like to pay 50 percent of the new price on used gear, so this was a really good price.
To good to be true, because this morning I got a notification that my money was refunded. Looks like it was priced...
I have an Xotic Super Clean Boost I use for leads. I have it set to treble cut. This works well for leads.
You will never get a guitar to respond exactly how you want in all situations. If you look at the pros, they are constantly fiddling with their knobs. Practice riding the tone knob.
Wow. Lots of options.
Can't be Basswood because it's a guitar, not a bass. Duh.
I've never seen it before so it can't be Popular.
Depending on the year, it could be Older.
Personally, I think it's Tonewood.
Nice. Back to the knobs. They look pretty cool. Most of the ones I have seen have plastic inserts. Those are probably pot metal, which could be iffy for longevity. Let us know how the reaming works out (and the test).
