    Who's going to Experience?

    Just purchased airfare to get my butt out to Maryland for Experience this year. Who else is going? There used to be a thread on this but I can't find it.

    Yes.....you can break an SM57

    Yes.....it is possible to break an SM57. From a height of less than 4 feet, my wife dropped one on a ceramic floor. It broke the plastic top off and somehow destroyed the element. Broke broke.....I put it back together but it's broke. Cool thing....she didn't have an issue with me just...

    PA questions.....

    Man......I'm totally cornfused right now. I need to build out a PA that is good for rehearsals AND small inside gigs (150 people or so). Bigger than that, or outdoors, we'd hire it out. Band is a typical 5 piece (drums, two guitars, bass, lead vox) with some backing vox. Music is late 90's/early...

    Pics....the type you play with with....

    Well, to accompany my post about strings and being a bad guitar dad, I thought to pose this question after practicing tonight. When do you get rid of a pick? Yeah, some get dropped and forgotten on stage, others live through the washer but not the dryer (I found many when I took mine apart...

    Bad guitar dad.....

    Hi, my name is Brandon and I'm a bad guitar dad. Most of us become bad guitar parents because we neglect the others as we reach for our favorite. All are treated equally in my home as I rotate through them all as evenly as possible. But something dawned upon me.....and I was horrified. I was...

    NGD Incoming!!!!!

    I found something at my local GC on the used rack last week. I asked for it as a birthday present but the wife said "NO!" I was good all year and didn't buy a guitar.....but she still said "NO!" Fine.....I'll figure this out. Somehow this will work out in my favor. One - hit big at the...

    CITES Question

    I'm being required to move a '06 CE24 (in Blazing Copper) on to a new home as my new WL DGT is taking up it's place on my wall. My concern is CITES regarding the East Indian rosewood fret board and selling internationally. I've done some basic research so far but can't find a definitive answer...

    Birthday 41 - Strange Day

    So a year ago, I had an interesting 40th birthday were I was about to blame Dave's for forgetting to put my Angelus Custom in the case case before shipping it to me (I also ended up with a McCarty that day). If you hadn't read the tale then click my name and look it up. Pretty funny story. Fast...

    Two Channel H issues.....and a proper solution

    So I have a Two Channel H that started blowing fuses for no good reason over a year ago. Even with no tubes and no load, it blows fuses. Having built many amps over the years (mostly JTM45, Super Leads, and Super Bass knock offs with my own voicings and certain mods), I decided to pull the amp...

    NGD....X2?!?!?!

    So for my birthday my incredibly awesome wife bought me an SE Angelus Custom and pulled and an epic prank on me (see the thread in the acoustic forum!!) But this afternoon, after running errands (on my birthday and day off nonetheless!), we stopped by the GC because I wanted to buy a powered...

    NGD - Sitting in a brown box

    When I got home from work today, there was a large brown box on my front porch. It was odd since I have not ordered anything lately that would require such a box. Raising it up to carry it inside, I noticed that it was from Dave's Guitar Shop!!! Knowing that I didn't order anything from Dave's...

    CE Neck Cleaning

    So I recently got a new to me CE 24 (it's an '06 in Blazing Copper). It has been a long week at work and home (working second shift in a museum but still have to get up early for the kids) so I haven't had much time with it until today. The previous owner took great care of it, but upon real...

    Mic stand lyre/note card holder/cheat sheets

    So I could use some help. I'm looking for a flip folder/lyre combo to attach to a mike stand. Something that I can easily have notes available for each song (chords, lyrics, etc) but is not big and obtrusive like a traditional music stand. Any ideas??

    NGD!! CE24 questions....

Pics to come....tomorrow or Sunday when I change the the strings and do a little cleaning. Anyways, I am a bit surprised by...

    John Mann SE Phase II tuners

    Does anyone have experience with the John Mann SE tuners converted to Phase II's? I'm seriously considering them for my SE Tremonti Custom as it will be my 2nd stage guitar when my #1 goes to PTC for some TLC. Thoughts?

    PTC Prices - Refret

    I seem to recall that once upon a time the PTC had a generic price list for doing basic things (setups, fret dresses, etc.) but I can't find it now. Any thoughts on what the cost would be for a refret of a CU24? I sent off a quote request but am thinking about the budget. Thanks!

    CE - New Release or Older?

    So the bug has bit again and I want a CE. In particular, I want the same/similar tones that I get out of my '91 CU24 with the 5 way rotary but with the subtle changes that the bolt on maple neck brings to the table. Here's my question - would I be better off getting the new release of the CE...

    2 Channel "H" tube questions

    I picked up a used 2 Channel "H" combo a few weeks ago and can't find much info on it and the tubes. My question regards the use of the 12WD7 and it's role. Now I'm assuming that this tube is the phase inverter (it should be considering the physical location). My question would be why they used...

    And while I'll have guitars on the bench.....

    The 3 way switch on my SE Tremonti Custom won't stay in the neck position. I've adjusted it but I think that it just needs to be replaced. What is the best switch for a drop in replacement?
