    cleanest "overdrive" pedal

    Definitely look into a K-style pedal. I prefer the Wampler Tumnus Deluxe- it’s an insanely versatile pedal. You can use it as an EQ for coloring your cleans or to add grit. It’s got an internal voltage doubler so you can overdrive an amp with just the volume knob. The EQ section is very...

    help / advice needed, woodworms in my new ultra luxe strat

    Just an awful turn of events - I’m so sorry. I’d be sick to my stomach about it if it were my guitar. You’ll need to call Orkin or a bug killer company and has your house treated ASAP!! You don’t want those bastards setting up in the wood frames of your home. Damn man. That totally sucks.

    Are guitar and pedal reviews becoming useless ?

    Unfortunately, so true. But the store in Louisville KY called Moms Music is incredibly successful despite a GC down the road. And they sell high end stuff, custom shop Strats and LPs They had a ‘68 D35 for sale recently. But they are the exception though.

    Amps that made the "final cut"

    I’m all about that Custom 68 Pro Reverb - I have one myself and it is superb. Unbelievable tone. I constantly get compliments on it.

    What goes best with Sonic Blue?

    Parchment for the win, especially after it ages a bit - mint makes the sonic blue look more greenish IMO

    Touching - I didn’t know Kelly but he seemed like he was a super cool dude and a helluva musician. Are they overwound? What’s the DCR? Is this the build that you’re using the neck I sold to you for?
