    This amp looks soo awesome. I've always had a thing for VHT's if I could afford it and if it was practical I'd definatley have an Ultra-lead Pitbull it's probly my favorite amp that I ever played through. I've been really interested in the Sig X because it's a little bit cheaper and you can...

    So I made my rare bi-annual trip to GC today to see if they had any replacement speakers and just to look around, andI realized I don't have the words to describe how much I hate that place. The help is no help and every bit as annoying as a Radio Shack employee. I told the guy what I was...

    What do you guys use? I'm probably gonna get a Mk III in a couple of months. Anyone here here use one? If so, can you tell how it sounds with your Ibanez? Clips are greatly appreciated.

    For the tone in my head the only thing fullfilling so far is the Mesa Boogie Recto-verb. My question is the local Guitar Center has it for $1499 which is a tad bit higher than my budget. In about 3 months I will have around $1500-2000 but I got around $600 of it already spoken for. Now does...

    I ordered it about 2 weeks ago and was told it would be in mid July. Well, I got the call on Wednesday that it was here. Nice! Plays and looks great! The pick-ups are being swapped-out in both my RGTs to DiMarzios (ToneZone/Air Norton).

    I figure a lot of you guys here are shredders which after 20 some years of playing is what I strive to do well. Not sure I'm there yet but I'm having a blast trying anyways. I have a Mk IV which is pretty cool but I'm thinking of trying another set up. What do you guys play through?

    Hey I'm back! After a suspension by some whining idiot who didn't like what I wrote, how lame and *****! Anyway, I came up with a solution to a problem I was having with the JCM 2000 TSL 100 channel switching. As it switches from any overdrive channel to clean, there seems to be a non-seamless...

    Alot of people have been telling me that the older duel channel rectifiers are much better then the newer triple channel rectos. Can anyone clarify on this? I'm thinking of purchasing a Dual Rectifier in the future and will probably want to get it new rather then second hand so i want to know...

    I recently won a brand new RG1527 on ebay for $275. what are some upgrades that can be done to make this machine perfect? i heard somewhere around here that the standard trem posts are bad, so should I change that first? I'm definately switching out the pickups for an Evolution or a ToneZone...
