    What pedals do you use?

    I use a Pod Go at church and have learned to get some pretty good overdriven and distortion tones from it On occasion I will use some external pedals if needed. Depends on if I don't have enough DSP. Sometimes I'll use a Wampler Tumnis Deluxe or the Wampler Panteon Overdrive. I really like the...

    60 years ago today.

    The Beatles Sullivan shows are available on DVD. The cool thing is that the shows are exactley as they aired with the commercials of the day! It's quiet a nostalgic ride to look back upon a time that once was. I'll never forget the next day at school after the first appearance. I've never seen...

    60 years ago today.

    Can't believe it was 60 years ago today when the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan show. Jeez, I was 10!! I remember the excitement you could feel in the air in the few days prior to their appearance. Find myself missing those times more and more with each passing day.

    The siren song of digital....

    Thanks Aahzz! Very helpfull! I know some guys will always prefer amps but for my situation the Pod Go has been a lifesaver, especially for my aging back and knees! I used to have to carry my amp, 2x12 cab and pedal board up from the basement, through the house into my car, take it all into...

    The siren song of digital....

    I've been using a Pod Go for church for the past few years and for me it works quite well. Just curious if the HX Stomp has any huge advantages over the Pod Go. Are there 4 Snapshots within each preset like in the Pod Go? I love that feature. I use snapshot 1 for the bridge pickup, 2 is for...

    Need new electronics for SE 22 Standard.

    I've got to replace the 3 way blade switch on this guitar. Been scratchy sounding from day one and yes, I've tried contact cleaner a few times. It's actually starting to cut out when going from the bridge to the neck pickup. Figure I might as well get all new pots while I'm at it. Saw a wiring...

    Do you ever bevel you picks?...and what your go to shape?

    I've tried all kinds of picks and it makes no difference when trying to get a bit of speed going. Oh well, can't have it all!

    PRS 85/15 Pickups Sound Thin for my Style. Will other PRS pickups fix this or is it the guitar?

    If I was going to get a new neck pickup, offhand I'd try something like a 5% underwound neck pickup from Lindy Fralin in an attempt to get the "boom" out of the sound. If I remember right, while reading some reviews on Lindy's website, one guy talked to Lindy who agreed to send him a pickup that...

    PRS 85/15 Pickups Sound Thin for my Style. Will other PRS pickups fix this or is it the guitar?

    I have yet to find a neck pickup that doesn't overpower the bridge pickup in one way or another. You name the adjustments to both pickups and I've tried them. This isn't for everyone, but I use a Pod Go at church. The only way to get around this (for me) is: in reach preset there are 4...

    RIP Melanie

    Movie quote: "We're at the point where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away." Well, not totally....still a lot to look forward to. But whoa, where are the years going?

    RIP Melanie

    She was another "voice of my youth" when I was in high school from 1968 through 1971. God keep ya dear lady.

    Random. No more or less

    Just going over the recordings from last nights practice session at church. Making little changes here and there on a few things. Nice knowing I've got tomorrow and Saturday to go over it all again and again. Thinking of replacing the .009 - .046 strings on my SE Standard with a .010 gage. Love...

    PSA: Great Deal On An Optical Compressor

    Thanks for the info! I appreciate your time. Again, what I'm hearing is very subtle but it's just enough of a difference where I'm going "hmm. Might be onto something!"

    PSA: Great Deal On An Optical Compressor

    I have an old Aphex Punch Factory Optical Compressor pedal that I used years ago with my bass. For kicks I just hooked it up to my pedal board wheich leads to a question. (Keep in mind the footswitch on this pedal is acting up a bit.) i've never used a compressor on my guitar but of what I can...

    Gibson '59 recreation PAF pickups

    I understand there's a lot of variables with pickups. Just thought I'd share a little story from my past regarding real PAF's. Back in 1978 I was playing bass in a new band. One of our guitar players used a 1970 Les Paul through an old 1959 Fender Bassman amp, the model with 4, 10's. Guitar...

    PRS setups in the store (out of the box)

    Agreed. How can you tell if it's the guitar for you if you're fighting to play it due to action that's too high for you? I can't. I bought an Epuphone SG Pro in 2019. I'll never forget the first time I played it at the store. My thought was "how is it possible for a $400.00 guitar to play this...

    PRS SE Models - Do They Have the Same “Essence” As Core Models?

    Ha! The "cheese graters!!" I like that one! I started on bass guitar way back in 1968. Bought a bass from a friend of mine at school for $30.00. Strings were fairly high off the neck and on the G string, from the 13th fret up the note was G#! The pitch didn't change from the 13th fret up...

    PRS SE Models - Do They Have the Same “Essence” As Core Models?

    I know exactly what you mean. I have an Epiphone SG Pro and a Gibson SG Special. As well as the Epiphone plays the Gibson has that extra little something with the way it plays. Hard to describe but you can feel the "step up" in quality. Those two guitars as well as my SE Standard played amazing...

    PRS SE Models - Do They Have the Same “Essence” As Core Models?

    How come the strings don't get stuck in my Strat? Different material? Not trying to argue at all, just asking.

    PRS SE Models - Do They Have the Same “Essence” As Core Models?

    I've never played a Core model so I can't compare them to an SE. I tried a number of SE's that I didn't care for due to the poor setups. Doesn't mean it can't get sorted out with a good setup. But when I look for a guitar I'm attracted to the ones that (for me) play great right from the get go...
