    Ideal Vox amp for you

    I don't have an AC30, I have an AC15c1 in vintage black. This was a Sweetwater exclusive. It came with a Celestion creamback. I like to play my strat through the top boost channel and my tele through the normal channel. I haven't played other Vox amps but as far as I'm concerned this is the...

    anybody use an pedal amp?

    In my never ending tone quest to sound like Angus and Malcom I recently bought a Catalinbread DLS. The funny thing is it makes the clean channel on my DSL 40cr sound just like the drive channels

    Any amps I should avoid?

    I bought a Marshal dsl 40cr last September and it has become the amp I plug into most often. I bought it to pair with my Les Paul but I soon found that my strat sounds great through it also. The last few weeks I have been plugging in my tele and it also sounds great. With 4 channels it goes...

    Dolly withdraws R&R HoF nomination

    Dolly's the coolest! I just recently broke up with my wife, I would love to find a 35 year old Dolly Parton just for myself. Not that I listen to a lot of her music but if Islands in the stream comes on the radio, I'm not changing the station.

    Has what passes for guitar genius changed as much as the guitars since the golden age?

    I agree with what you're saying. Almost all of the music I listen to was recorded +/- 15 years from 1974 (the year I was born). There was some good music recorded in the 90's but I rarely listen to it. I'm primarily a rock and roll fan but that era came and went. I have been listening to a...

    Can't buy Vox...just because of its ugly logo

    I personally like the way Vox amps look, classic. They were designed in the late 50's/ early 60's, a very stylish period in time. Look at the way people dressed back then or the cars that were designed. Lots of good taste to go around. In contrast, most of the things that are designed today look...

    Favorite Van Halen Era (Poll)

    When I started my itunes music library years ago I didn't have any complete Van Halen albums yet, but I had a pretty even split between DLR and SH era songs. After listening to my Van Halen playlist over and over, I found that I was skipping over all of the Sammy songs and only listening to the...

    Pick guard

    I went through Warmoth when I needed one. I am very happy with the the pickguard and the service was as expected. Warmth also has a better variety of products available. Nothing wrong with Fender products though.

    Does anyone find tinted maple necks ugly?

    I prefer the look of natural maple. I find tinted/ roasted maple necks to be a worthless modern gimmick. Given time and some exposure to sunlight and the maple will darken t the perfect tint.

    Do you still consider the players series.

    I think of Squire as being the entry level. The player series is a compromise. Some people value American craftsmanship and real rosewood fretboards and some people prefer to have a few extra dollars in their pocket.

    Speaking of pointy Guitars, should I buy this?

    You're going to hate that guitar the first time you stab yourself in the balls with one of those pointy horns.

    Stalkish Songs

    I saw Ozzy listed previously but nobody has mentioned "No More Tears" yet. Even Zakks guitar solo sounds like stalking, then chasing and eventually the rape and murder of the girl in question. God bless Ozzy!

    Who is/was BETTER?!? Pearl Jam or Creed (Poll)

    I've never been a real big fan of Pearl Jam, but they were a good band with a lot of good songs. I can't stand Creed.

    No Guitar/Amp/Pedal purchases for 2022
