    Anybody use a Headrush MX5 ??

    Anyone using a Headrush MX 5? A friend came over with her’s a few weeks ago. I programmed a sound in it and it wasn’t so bad. But it was also very bright… but I was playing it thru a 68’ Pro Reverb. It seems like a “Tidy” little unit. I have to admit I don’t get on well with multi effect...

    Pigtronix Philosopher’s Tone Germanium Gold MICRO

    Doing the open mic night house band gig… very Blues and real Old School R&B Southern Soul they might call it these days. Anyway I got the hankering for a compressor. That would make my rhythm “POP” and make single note lines stand out. I think? This is nothing new I mean I’ve played R&B and Funk...

    I cleaned my guitar room 2022

    The last few months I’d pretty much abandoned my music room. Stuff everywhere! I’ve been picking out in the living room when no one was home. But with my Robbin retiring last week I’m not gonna be home alone much. So I had to clean the room …. It’s not so bad now… You get the idea from this...

    Goldie gets a Calliham!!!

    Received the Calliham this morning… made quick work of the installation. Didn’t change the claw… Seems to work well. Plays like a different vintage Strat but still has that vibe I ❤️. Definitely fixes the string problem. I had to adjust the D string saddle for intonation. The other 5 were...

    Do I Mod Goldie …

    Ok my be-loved old Strat “Goldie” has been getting a lot on my attention lately. The Josefina Hand Wound Fat-50’s got replaced with Mark Foley #1 set. Then she got a Shur noise canceling system installed. And then … and then she got refretted with the Novo Gold frets. Are you with me so far...

    Running Up That Hill… Kate Bush

    Well I remember this song getting a little air play around 1980? I was living on a friends couch and I remember hearing in on the radio… in the mornings… I remember waking up to this song and thinking how cool it was… with that drum beat and that interrupted synth line. Synths we’re still a new...

    New NUX Bumblebee Pedal Board Thread…

    Ordered this NUX pedal board the other day. Just got it in. I’ve seen worse for $99. PROs Nice padded bag… with shoulder straps. Board is nice for its size. Easily fitted 8 pedals and power supply. Top tier makes operating the top pedals easy without disturbing the ones on the bottom. I like...

    Goldie gets a Re-Fret

    Worked a deal with Jason for a fret job on my Ol’ Girl Goldie. He did his normal exemplary work. It would have cost $340 but he’s had my Variac since 2015 and I told him for $200 he could keep it. I got it off an abandoned platform years ago so it didn’t cost me anything. So for $140 out of...

    Fender 64’ Custom Shop HW Deluxe Reverb

    Well I looked and there doesn’t seem to be a Club for this amp. So I’m making one. I’ve owned the 64’ CS Deluxe for about a year. I ordered it myself from the Custom Shop and they were very nice about it. I hope other 64’ CS Deluxe owners find this thread. What can I say but it is perhaps the...

    Eastman El Ray 3

    I didn’t know what to think. I’m at the new exotic guitar shop. We installing some of @grumpah pickups in the Veronica Strat. This is the second set in a few weeks. Any way it’s a very dangerous place for people like me… and you. Well I had to see this Red thing. It seems the college students...

    HNPD Cube Baby

    Just got this in the mail. $52 Multi Effects about the size of 2 packs of cigarettes laid end to end. The demos sounded good. So I bit! I’m down sizing and this might come in handy down the road…. Will fit in most cases and gig bags easily and has good sounds. The new rehearsal/ restaurant rig…...

    Shur BPSSC …. Hum Canceling 68’ Goldie Mod

    Found this Shur hum canceling contraption a the local shop. Anyway I gave them a perfectly almost NOS DV3 for it. I really like the Mark Foley pickups… a lot! But they are not reverse wound middle so the guitar is a little noisy. Anyway nothing ventured nothing gained… and I ❤️ my old guitar...

    HNAD … Drip Edge 68’ Pro Reverb

    Well its all over but the crying! Picked up the Pro Reverb this morning. Met the seller about half way in a little town called Lavonia. For Fender historians this is where much of the Swamp Ash for Tele’s and Strats came from back in the day. Well I got the amp home. A buddy helped get it in...

    68’ SF Pro Reverb

    This popped up on the radar. Actually belongs to my wife’s cousin. I’ve actually done gigs with the guy back in the 90’s. Anyway seems like a good deal so I’m gonna meet him half way Wednesday morning…. If I don’t like it I figure I can get my money back out of it… I would ask you guys opinions...

    92’ SRV Just escaped the closet…

    :eek:… what am I to do… last spring I thinned the herd by 4 Strats and a Tele. But today I was just in my room and wailing away and I wondered how the ol’ girl SRV was doing. She probably hasn’t been out the closet in 2 or 3 years… it’s a shame really. So I dug her out and she got me freaking...

    Demonfx DuelGun…. Duellist Clone

    Been looking at this knockoff pedal line for a week or so. Seem like they copy just about anything you can ask. So I pulled the trigger on a Duellist copy today. Seems I’m building up that Texas Strat thing. I guess we’ll see if I wasted my $73. Hey I’m not gigging so $400+ for a Duellist to...
