    Is this the end of tube amps ?

    I thought this was going to be a Kemper thread. We had band practice this weekend. The other guitarist got a Kemper and was playing through it. The other guys made him stop and plug back into his Dr Z

    Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars fans

    Looks like I’m in the minority but I like Book of Boba Fett. I thought Mando season 2 was pretty bad

    Almost bought a fake Les Paul from GC

    Im a Gibson fan and mostly an LP player. The consensus among fans is that the best guitars Gibson has made since the golden era are being made right now, post 2019 after Henry J lost Gibson in bankruptcy and KKR and Curleigh took over. I have a friend that consults for Gibson and he says the new...

    real ones have wings glued on the side of the headstock - that used to be a giveaway but maybe the fakes have gotten better

    Wanting a hollow/semi hollow. Big dude i want a bigger guitar

    My 335 with P90s is my best sounding guitar. Sounds nothing like a strat. Has a bit of twang like a tele and the beef of a Les Paul, but a bit brighter. I got this one: https://www.gibson.com/en-US/Guitar/USA74A554/ES-335-P-90/Ebony But replaced the cream pickup covers with black. I also...

    PSA: Musicians Friend has 30% off Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire 2-color sunburst

    hi all. Quick update - mine arrived, new in box, lightweight (6 pounds 14 oz) but I found the neck and radius difficult to play and additionally the pickup sounded pretty wimpy. It was kind of a “meh” experience for me. I returned it. YMMV

    "Checking Down" - NFL Content

    I think it is sometimes meant as a caveat to completion percentage. Completion percentage is an important stat because it reflects both accuracy and finding open receivers. But if a QB has a high completion percentage and most throws are checkdowns, the QB may not be considered very good. Sammy...

    NGD: Monoprice Indio Telecaster shaped object

    Now that I’ve sat with it for a day, I’m going to revise my original review. I have two complaints. The first is that the guitar will not stay in tune. The D, G, B strings are a little wonky with respect to tuning stability. I have to check if this is a nut or tuner issue. the second is that...

    Nirvana and Winger: against the narrative

    I remember being at an adult club right after Smells Like Teen Spirit broke. Warrant’s Cherry Pie started playing ... and it was like one of those needle-scratches-record moments where everyone at the club had the same vibe, which was something like “I can’t believe how lame this is.” Metal...
