    Unit is in perfect shape. Don't play out much anymore so I'm thining out some gear. Unit works perfect. 4 channels with a total of 10 preamp tubes. 2 clean, 1 crunchy, and the 4th channel just screams. Built in reverb and graphic eq. Used it in a custom stack for quite a few years, had...

    I have a Gibson SG STD. I bought it because the neck was nice and the fingerboard on this particular one is uber sweet. It is a joy to play. I've never been very fond of the looks of the SG though. After having it about a year, it mostly stays in it's case because I've come to really be...

    Just wondering is anyone else has tried this pedal. A buddy of mine told me about it, and it is an incredible product. It can turn your amp into a tone monster.

    I used to have a mesa F50, which i absolutely loved, but unfortunately i couldnt really crank it up that much, so i sold it and now have a marshall avt250 which doenst really cut the mustard for me. Any thoughts on the orange ? I thought valve might be a bit better sound, and the small 15w...

    So my first ever guitar was a $130 Ibanez Gio. Its made in Indonesia and not exactly what you would call a tone monster. So I figure whats the point in trying to resell it for like $75. I figured with some **** parts and a refinishing, it could be a decent backup guitar. Something I could...

    I just saw the video posted on the Paul Gilbert Reverse Icemans thread where PG praises his custom Reverse Icemans and a newly designed PGM301 for having thicker necks (Reverse Icemans) and a thick, old-school block neck joint (PGM301). Why? Because these thicker parts supposedly give thicker...

    Hey everyone. I am enjoying this message board quite a bit.. I'm just getting into all this guitar gear stuff and have bought a couple of things to get me started but I need a smaller amp with nice tone at low low volumes. Right now I have a Crate vtx 65b solid state combo which I like at...

    I love the PGM301, but what besides this?

    http://www.blackmachine.net/ New stripped down versions, still with all the quality control etc, but cheaper! Also you get a choice of lundgrens, dimarzios or bareknuckles among other pickups. (and before anyone complains about the price in dollars, well, we get shafted in reverse on...

    Hi guys, great website you got here, I've been reading for a long time but never really decided to post anything until now. For the last few months I've been having the dilemma between a JS1200 and a JEM7WH. I'm mainly a shredder, but I love to rock the blues sometimes. I'm a big fan of the...

    Have any of you guys (or gals) had much experience with 'em? Ive been looking for a nice amp for a while now and I must say this one's tone is simply brilliant. I worked my behind off all summer to save for rig ugrades, so I really need some other opinions before i make this kind of investment...

    Having gone through (bedroom amps we're talking here): Marshall mini-stack Vox Valvetronix Line 6 Spider's (15w & 30w) I'm still trying to find something I'm truly happy with at bedroom levels. The Marshall has a really nice clean sound, not sparkling like I'd want, but still a nice clean...

    Hi everybody, I'm a new member here. I've been playing Ibanez'es on and off for about 17 years. I just bought a 570 with a RW fingerboard and I'm mulling over pickup ideas. Maybe a PAF Pro in the neck, and either a Fred, or Double Whammy bridge. Anyone ever use a Double Whammy on an RG...

    As promised, here's my review of the RG 20th. Lazy people look away now, this could be lengthy, though I will attempt to keep it brief! This particular beast is the Road Flare Red model, delivered to me on the exact date I got my first one. How's that for timing?! Having owned the original...
