    Get You Some Ace !!

    I can understand why some people don't "get it " with KISS. If one breaks it down to the music they can stand with most but their gimmick really doomed them. I love the makeup and the huge shows but I believe that a lot of people see that as a cover for a band that just isn't that good. I was...

    Gibson SG's: What Am I Missing?

    I assume that the "dive" issue is why most SG's still come with plastic tuning keys. If you keep the weight down it helps the issue, however, I have not really had an issue with it. Sure, if I let go of the guitar completely it will tip down but it isn't anything that would ever bother me enough...

    Anyone Interested In A Standard Martin D-18?

    GLWS, I moved my HD-28 a couple of years ago and I still miss that thing all the time. The tone of a Martin cannot be matched by anything else.

    The First Time I Saw P**n On The Internet

    Man, you guys are bringing the memories back! My initial internet experiences were in '96 or so, my grandparents had AOL on a Windows '95 machine and we used to look up music sites and stuff like that. We didn't have a computer until about 2000 and that was a 256MB with a 4gb HD running...

    So I Got Laid Off...

    I surely wish positions like this still existed. I was reading an article the other day in regard to GM closing the Lordstown, OH production plant. One of the workers who will be let go explained that she started 25 years ago and now makes $32 an hour and will retire with full benefits and...

    Favorite Guitars Other Than Gibson Or Fender

    ESP and Ibanez prestige. Those 2 are made with attention to detail that would embarrass Gibson and fender. The feel and look may not be for everyone but they are perfect every time right out of the box and for my playing style they are effortless.

    Live Shows 2019

    There are plenty of shows I want to go to this year, just not sure if I’ll be able. KISS is for sure, my dad got us tickets, I really want to go to hatebreed and Nashville pussy but, paycheck will decide that one. I think priest is coming as well.

    Found One

    I thought the newer special was made in Mexico? Anyway, as far as the USA one I mean a peavey, the EVH USA ones are way out of my league. I’ve played a couple of peavey specials and really love them. Hoping that whichever one I get matches up to those 2. I’ve got a line on one for $479 with...

    Round 7 … Supercross Arlington 2/16/19

    That was definitely a good race. I have never been a Webb fan but even I will admit that he looks the best at the moment. I can't figure Tomac out, the guy shows flashes of brilliance and then poof, it's gone. Musquin is just about done at this point, he's been in it for years and just doesn't...

    Marshall 1960 Vintage Series A Cab..

    If you look at the panel where the jacks are on the rear it should have a model. It would be "1960av" or similar. Then check or and that will give you a ballpark but, I agree with the above, $500 should be about right.

    Tell Me About Jimmy Page Les Paul Wiring... Is It All That?

    Man, I love that custom shop wiring. Sexy every time. Ever try bumblebee caps? I’ve heard they add some mojo but I’ve never been able to afford the things.

    Anyone Else On A Weight Loss/fitness Trip Since New Year?

    I wasn’t doing anything seriously about weight loss, even though I’ve needed to lose some for years until I got a call from an old martial arts instructor who informed me that he is starting a new organization and would like for me to be a part of it. Something along the lines of “you’ve got...

    The Official Marshall Studio Classic Thread Sc20

    I bought a used 6505mh from them a while back, the previous owner had installed a computer fan in the back of it. The fan didn’t actually operate though so, there’s that. I’ve had 2 of these over the years and never had an issue, that said, I wasn’t gigging so I didn’t have them wide open for...
