    Needed a Tele with a trem for a new project. This is where my GAS led me. Found it on the Guitar Center website. Just showed up yesterday. I think I am gonna like it. If you ordered this from Nash it would be high dollar. The thinline body, Bigsby, binding and maple top are all options. Has Lollars in it. I'm going to send the neck to Murkat Jay to put the period correct Fender decal on it, like he recently did on my Nash S63.

    If you can do part of this you have bragging rights.

    I gotta give a huge yuuuge thanks to Mr. Toad and Tommy for making this all happen. I couldn't be more thrilled to see it come back home! Just as importantly, it got used in the way that it ought to be, with lotsa checkerboard involved. Oh, Tommy, there's just one eensy problem... Now that it has been run through a big kid Mesa head and Marshall cab, I'm probably gonna get a lot of grief when it goes through Marshall, Vox and Fender combos. BTW, you guys really have the look!

    OP never mentions buying it in this thread so maybe you should get your cart off the street ya negative nellie. Whether they work a deal or not, guy shows up looking for a specific guitar made over 30 years ago and within a week it appears it's been located. That's a win all day in my book.

    I can't dig this one enough: Replaces my longtime Tech21, which replaced my Boogie Studio 22+. Compared to the Sock Monkey, the Boogie is just too heavy and TOO LOUD (and it's not bad at all).

    Well, as pretty as that EBMM Classic Sabre was that I posted several months back, I find I just really don't like an active bass. So, it went on the chopping block with a trade option. I was lucky enough to have someone offer this 2018 Mapleglow 4003s as a straight trade. Came in today and damn if it doesn't fit like a glove right out of the box. I have heard some people have trouble with the ergo's on these basses, but not me. I've got a set of TI flats on the way and it will be just right at that point . Can't wait for practice next week.

    That guitar is worth (easily) three times that at "good guy" pricing. A fair deal all around for something that rare and unique would be somewhere in the low to mid-$2,000s. That would sell for a considerable number north on the open market.

    Kevin and his daughter dropped off the monsterboard a few minutes ago. It's gorgeous, don't you think?

    Age 71. Had battled liver cancer in recent times and that's apparently what caused his demise. Little Feat singer/guitarist, peer of Lowell George. Subtle and underrated slide player, and Little Feat was an underappreciated band that had more to do with the 'evolution' of genres such as Americana and Roots Music...and I still don't fully understand those designations but IMO Little Feat was closer to aggregations like the Band. One of my favorite Barrere vocals was on a 1986 T. Lavitz solo album, of all things, where he sang lead vocals on a song called I'm Calling You" w/ Nicholette Larson and Michael McDonald singing backup.

    A lot of that stuff seems to have sold for four and five times it's actual value. Crazy. It was Walter Becker's stuff, not Hendrix's.

    That’s because the ‘06 Studio has chrome hardware. The ‘05 Redwood has nickel hardware. The Studio Custom Redwood Limited was, as the name indicates, a limited production run of only thirty guitars. I owned #29. The sound is completely different than its maple-capped contemporaries. They have a nice warm, somewhat prominent midrange that yields a very nice note bloom. In 1974 Hamer used a four digit number stamped into the wood starting with guitar #0000 and until the launch of the Sunburst this system was used on all guitars. The Sunbursts were numbered using a different system : the first digit represents the year of production and the following four (or later five digit number) is the total number of guitars made by Hamer and numbered using this system. So for example guitar #8 0196 was made in 1978 and was the 196th guitar to be numbered using this system. Similarly # 8 21416 was made in 1988 and was the 21416th guitar to be numbered. These numbers are printed using ink or paint (black on most but yellow on black and dark coloured instruments). By 1980 most guitars made were numbered using this later system but some custom instruments (notably Standards and Eight-string basses) were numbered using the older four digit numbering system, a very few were still numbered using this system up until 1985 (e.g Standard #0722 was completed in May 1984); in total about 750 instruments were numbered using these four digit numbers. Late in 1987 the serial numbers were stamped into the wood rather than printed. The 1990’s SNs began around 0-24XXX and ended around 9-51XXX. Anything higher is ‘00s.

    My Quilter MicroPro Mach 2 8” 200. It is also my stage amp, my studio amp, and my practice amp. 19 lbs, sounds huge, great dispersion, PLENTY of volume, and I get mix ready tracks from the direct out. One rig to rule them all.

    If you have a car, I'd say take the drive to Louisville (on the way to Boulder) to hit Wildwood.

    This is the first one. Same layout as a typical Hamer but angled. The Bigsby got in the way of the switch. Jol had me delete the switch and place it in the third potentiometer position.

    Rivera R55-12 or Mesa Boogie DC-5. Depends on how I'm feeling that day. The Rivera is a tad lighter, but also not quite a versatile, so its' a toss up.

    They suck for excluding Gorman. You cannot build a band then say they dont count. Rich can barely play. The first exposure to 90% of their fans is a Gorman drum beat. It should be the Brothers

    I’m being cremated. Ain’t no way I’m burning up one of my guitars with me. They need to be passed on and enjoyed by others for decades after my ashes are grown into a tree to be cut down and made into another guitar to complete the cycle...

    The Betty Davis episode of, “Tales From the Tour Bus”, is very enlightening. She is just as important as Parliament/PFunk in the development of hard funk. She’s NASTY.

    Purchased at the end of August 2019. I played a lot of the Performer Series and many of them were heavier and had necks that weren’t as nice as this one. This is a great medium weight. Josh personally played and set this one up and gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up (and wanted to buy it, but needs to sell more pickups, so make some orders HFCers!!!). G.A.S. for a high-end amp calls me. Mint condition, gig bag (never used as I had a different one), C.O.A, all case candy, and original pickups included. Alder body (color “Penny”) Josh Gravelin Blackguard pickups Greasebucket tone system “Modern C”-shaped neck with 9.5”-radius fingerboard; 22 jumbo frets ClassicGear™ tuning machines; silver ‘70s logo $950 + 50 shipping. Payment method negotiable, but I take PayPal or Apple Pay https://share.icloud.com/photos/0MbcEDQ8OtYRSOgrZvSpHPBDw

    Love my Nash P bass, I could definitely see getting a Nash tele. That one looks killer, even with that abomination of a tremolo attached to it.

    Yes, they must be 4 conductor output leads; will split nicely and I'd use two 500k push/pull pots, specifically the brass-shaft Allparts and Mojotone offerings to do this. Non-evasive, will retro-fit...perfect choice for a classy guitar! I know Duncan has a diagram on their website and it's easy to do with the most basic of soldering skills. Any reputable guitar shop can do the work if you're not comfortable. I think you'd get an appreciable "bang for your buck" either way .. I say go for it!

    Anybody have experience with Vintage 47 amps? There's a Cowboy Tonemaster by Vintage 47 on the local CL at what seems like a good price and I am being tempted.

    We used to cover a couple tunes from Will Ray's 2001 Mojo Blues album. Back before we left Los Angeles. I did some guitar trading and took a few lessons from Jeff Ross. Apparently he filled in as a "4th Hellecaster" when one of the three regulars was unavailable. Kind of eye opening to get exposed to that level of playing up close. He also served as band leader for Candye Kane for a while, as well as other musical things, which also lead to some interesting opportunities at LA area venues.......The good old days! "Trouble" is the Will Ray song I most enjoyed doing. Neither my vocals not my playing compare well to him, but we sure had a lot of fun. This was the other one..... Edited to add......I had to look a bit harder for this. I think the whole Mojo Blues album is great. Well worth checking out.

    Those remind me of the big multi-effects pedals that boss made, like the ME-50. Lots of discrete effects stuck together. Somehow visually and internally I find that easier to deal with than the AXEFX or other units where you can't just look at the thing and know exactly what it's doing.
