  1. Wow! Got my RMT tracking # today as well... That was the fastest LP purchase to date.
  2. By "downsizing", he was mostly just selling off the crap (with one or two notable exceptions). He still has a stellar collection and is still picking up things.
  3. I screen my ebay searches for US-only or North America only and don’t have those issues! 😉
  4. Ageed. If I didn't already have my GM, I'd have already snagged this one. These amps are also DEAD SILENT when it comes to normal amp hum. It's noticeable.
  5. I've got to stop at TWO Monkeys...three 3 Monkeys would just be, um...weird?
  6. It'll be tough to top my 2019 acquisition of this 12/18 Sock Monkey - got to pick it up for another cool, yet too brief, HFC hang with gtrdaddy too!
  7. I've had 3 of those - gave Serial one of my checkerboard ones (just like the one at GC), kept a checkerboard with slightly different graphics and have one of the Chrome LE versions. That was on my board for over a decade - great sounding pedal!
  8. Stike has a couple things cooking for me that I've been itchin' to get together...a few other projects getting wrapped up, but I want to spend more time playing (and playing out) in 2020.
  9. Any idea where Wyldbil's Special is lately?
  10. Not sure where you heard that, but it is simply not true - sounds like seller BS. That tolex was available from TKL (and Cedar Creek), but also MojoTone a few decades ago. It's a different size of checkerboard than on Rick's stage amps, and his Rivera signaure amps were just regular 55-12s masked and sprayed silver.
  11. I'm totally having YOU do my guitar safaris from now on! Always wanted one of those...or another cool old Iceman/Mirage.
  12. Interesting that they’re bringing back the Lead Series. Those weren’t really big sellers, but were an affordable entry point for Fender back then. I’ve actually got an Antares COPY of a Fender Lead I around...
  13. Really? I had one of the mid 80s MIJ Teles and it was definitely 25.5”
  14. I’d question that scale length. I doubt they invented a 25.1” for a lower priced model. More like the bad editing we’re getting used to these days, but just my guess...
  15. I had put in a preorder on one of those 4 years ago to go on my Shishkov DC. Everything about it seemed to be just what I wanted. They had numerous production issues and delay after delay, and MIke and I went with another trem instead. 6 months later, they were available on a limited basis, but I still haven’t pulled the trigger.
  16. Are you ordering the body from somewhere like MJT or Musikraft? I've had some killer Musikraft bodies recently. There are 4 Hollow Tele bodies going - one all mahogany (one piece back and top), a Korina top on a hollow Swamp Ash back, and two hollow Swamp Ash bodies. The Mahogany will be close to a Cabronita, but with a cool twist. The Korina, 2 Humbuckers, one swamp Ash gets a Dimarzio Chopper T and a neck TVJ DuoTron. No plans for the fourth body...that might go in a future parts sale. Worth looking into MK if you want something interesting!
  17. I'd reach out to them again. That seems unusually long for them.
