  1. I greatly prefer the Ge based boosters too, but the Cbread Naga Viper I had sounded and reacted just like Ge and it was Si....don’t know What mojo they used....it’s gone now as I had too many at one point....down to a Lovepedal White Dragon and the Monsterpiece MonsterDrive now, since I sold the Texas Ranger.... That Banana Boost gets good reviews....and that Arcane looks wonderful. Nothing like a TB into buckers into a Marshall or tweed circuit.
  2. Wow to both.....the Eclipse is the right color....
  3. Murkat nailed it. I have had several of both and much prefer the L90. Hi-fi crunchiness and a very sweet clean tone.
  4. Mint 8 ohm speaker , 70 Watts that came in the old school Bell & Howell cab I bought here. It is excess to me. I haven’t even hooked it up. I pulled it and slammed in my fave Red Fang and it is simply sitting in a box. Supposedly this speaker cuts the diff between a Greenback and a G12h30. If that is true, then it is a killer Brit for sure. I just don’t have a need for it. These are $100 everywhere. Buy mine for SOLD Pics? Lemme know and I’ll email you. Please buy this speaker.
  5. Since I cannot load detailed pics here direct anymore, y’all will have to click on the Dbox link below. Ok, got my Newport in Jan 2017 and loved it immediately. Still love it. Plays wonderfully. Incredible guitar. My love/hate relationship with P90s was back in he love phase. The Phat Cats were hot and rocking, and I loved the middle position. They stayed there for over a year. But.... I had this Rumpel Archer pickup that works in any guitar just lying around....actually it was in my Strat and I wanted my Strat single back in...the Archer needed to be in a guitar so I tried it in the Newport. We have a winner and I am in the dislike phase of too-Hot P90s again. I had Aaron wind me a matching neck Archer and I love the aesthetics. They look cool, but they sound even better. Think pole[icee P90 as wide as a P90 but taller like a Fender type. The result is like a Fender on serious steroids with a touch of P90 snot. Perfect. Almost like a Jazzmaster, but way less polite in the bridge. The neck is smooth and the chimey middle is loverly. Like Josh, Aaron is a master winder and nails the tones in my head. These pickups sound vintagey...they produce old tones perfect for rockin’. Just wanted to share. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ri2dcjc0zjpztw0/IMG_1567.JPG?dl=0
  6. Gotta love a sizzling treble booster.....just excite all the right freqs...
  7. Guitars are funny like that.....I always had my tone on 10 with the Cats...and my Archers are even brighter......but as in all things, it is the sum of the parts. If I am rockin’ a Tweed, all is well on 10 tonewise....into my JMP, Mesa TA, or the Blonde Bassman, then it can get too trebly...even for me! Loves me some sparkle!
  8. The Cats were indeed a great match, but these, at least for me are better....more snap, sparkle, twang, and clarity and I love how they sound overdriven or with gain. I thought about slapping the Trons from my Artist into the Newport and putting these Archers into the Artist as the bridge Archer resided there in the Artist briefly and sounded great. But they are more “open” in the Newport. What a guitar. The minute I opened the case back in Jan 2017 I knew the Newport hype was real...even more so when I picked it up and played it. FGJ, you already know you’ll regret it! Play the Newport and she will again endear herself to you!
  9. Jaded, I LOVE the sold orange color on mine. I just felt the need to put some special pickups in there. Rob, I access the HFC from my iPad and every time I try to bring pics in here, unless they are blurry and small reso, I get the “too large” messgage....I wish that was the story of my life.... oh well, at one point posting here on the iPad was easy. Not so much anymore since Phuckitbucket croaked.
  10. I’ll get a clip up soon with the Archers...clean and dirty.
  11. Cats are gone. I played that guitar today for hours on end. I love it.
  12. Doesn’t the zero fret also make the open strings sound like the fretted strings since the open strings with a zero fret are now, well, fretted? No more binding in the nut or having the nut change the tone....I wonder why more makers don’t use them, other than the looks....
  13. Bridge first. Get the GROWL. Then when you get the neck that is sooooo smooth and so very clear you’ll be amazed.....and then you’ll go the chimney middle position and your jaw will drop.
  14. I've got it bad. :(

    I know the feeling....I am considering selling almost all my other guitars , including one of my beloved Hamers to fund one or two more Shishkov’s....
  15. Smokin’ deal right here on s top notch USA made Rocker! The pickups are really, really well-made Gotoh branded “KMS Old” alnico Low wind P90s. I should just buy this...
  16. See my avatar...mine are in my Korina Artist. Aaron at Rumpelstiltskin wound mine to vintage Gretsch specs and OMG they do sound vintage. The low strings thud and have a crazy GROWL while the treble strings chime and cut. My Artist started with SD 59s and I Love the neck on this one...I just had it refretted because over the last 10 years I wore the original frets down to nothing. I kept searching for the perfect pickups for this special guitar and found them in the Rumpel’trons. You will not go wrong with Rumpel or Gravelin. Does my Artist sounds like a Gretsch...? It will do the Malcolm Young thing and will chime like a Tom Petty song, but it doesn’t sound like Setzer on a Hollow 6120. The Artist is mostly solid. I love how it sounds. Now, when I want to get that Gretsch sound, it will get close. Here is a clip. My Artist is the Reverb-ey rhythm guitar on this one. https://acrev.bandcamp.com/track/clifton-city Do the filters.
  17. I had this sold on Reverb and shipped it to Chicago but the buyer doesn’t like it and we disagree about how the amp sounds...this is the second one he tried.. ANYWAY, IT IS BACK FOR SALE AT A REDUCED PRICE!!! I owned this amp a year and a half...bought it from Lucsulla...most versatile amp for stage or studio I have ever played....why am I selling? I need a new U67 mic clone for recording. And this is the only amp that I am confident that will sell fairly quickly. This amp is ridiculous...I bought it for the Vox channel which does both Vox Normal and Top Boost. Some have said it is the best Vox that Vox never made. It does THAT sound. Not to be outdone, the other side does Blackface Fender, Marshall(really, really well), and early Mk Mesa. The amp has 3 levels....5 Watts, 15, and 25... the Marshall Hi 1 setting on 5 Watts in JCM 800 territory and became my fave. Lucsulla said I’d like it...lol he was right! $600 shipped for the HFC with cable, footswitch, and a really nice carry case. Plus the blue LEDs are stupid cool. Hell, if anyone here buys it, I’ll throw in a brand new set of matched Gold Lion el84s (which cost me $70) as a freebie. Pics to follow...oh, one disclaimer: there is some discolorattion in the metal faceplates (see photos), but it does nothing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dcusn7oinkw8nla/IMG_1609.PNG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0zwtvxdemfojjvn/IMG_1608.PNG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/98ay1uus97pls5e/IMG_1607.PNG?dl=0
  18. This is a Lil Dawg 6g3 ChocoDawg... a spot -on clone of a 1963 Brownface Fender Deluxe in a lunchbox head format. Tnis amp has a GZ34 or 5y3 rectifier, 2 6v6gts, and 3 12ax7s. Best Trem ever. The very definition of swampy with the power tube bias Trem. Amp has two channels, Bright, and Normal with high and Low inputs. Channels are interactive. The 6g3 circuit is the nastiest circuit Fender ever made. Tighter and brighter than the 5e3 tweed Deluxe. This is the Cat Scratch Fever amp That Nugent paired with an EV SRO. It is also the ZZ Top First Album sound.....this is supposedly what he used....whether it is or not this is THAT sound. It is a spot-on clone (in lunchbox head format) of a 1963 Brownface Deluxe. Hand-Wired PTP by the best in the business. I chose an unlabeled lunchbox to save money. You can put labels, silkscreen, whatever you want. It sounds incredible.

I will also include a tremolo footswitch. The amp has two speaker inputs and a dedicated line out for PA or recording.... If the Mesa sells first, I’ll pull this listing, and vice-versa. Classic boutique amp that sounds simply incredible...chewy mids like no Fender you’ve ever heard....sounds like a classic Marshall when cranked but not as bright...and here’s a secret....the dark Normal channel comes absolutely ALIVE.with a classic treble booster.
  19. This is a rocking Fender....not high gain, but pure RNR!
  20. Bump for an awesome map that I am kinda glad will be home tomorrow.....yet it or the Brown Deluxe has gotta go....I need the funds...
  21. Love the pickup choices!! They look very cool and I am certain they sound cool too.
