  1. It would have already been sold if we weren't still playing catch up from the kiddo's hospital stay.
  2. 😪 I’ve been wanting to pull the 36th Aniv in my Strat and put it back to SSS for a bit now, want to have one guitar around with a humbucker, won’t mess with the P90 in my SG, and have always wanted to get a Phantom. I also really, really, have no money. GLWTS, damnit.
  3. That dude kills me. He's been trying to sell some used Chinese tubes for about the same price you can buy them new for the past three years, too. I think the worst, though, is the fact that he bumps his ads every few days and renews them when they expire, so you can't regularly block him.
  4. My G-System into a Mesa Lonestar Special is about as transparent, seamless ,simple, and flexible of a setup as I’ve ever had. The TC’s programmable relays switch the channels and solo boost, I can add pedals in three foot-switchable loops, and one programmable one, to any patch in front of the amp, and every effect, including the solo boost, is foot-switchable. You can separate the brains from the footswitches, and keep the brains in two-space soft rack case with a laptop pocket where I keep the pedals. All connections are through a 1m snake to the amp. Once I rolled everything on stage, I was setup in minutes. I thought I was the shit when I had a Triaxis and G-Force, but this setup smokes it. I can do the same thing with my Mk IV, but I have to use a hum-buster transformer and a midi switcher with it. So much simpler with the LSS, and it’s loud enough to hang with a drummer, or quiet enough @ 5w to play in the basement underneath the sleeping wife. I’d like to try it with a Stiletto, which has a similar switching system to the LSS. It really fulfills the promise of that first GSP-5 I bought.
  5. I did l0lz. Welcome. You can usually knock down the image size of your pics by emailing them to yourself and selecting anything other than full-size.

    If there ever was someone you could count on to make you laugh! Memory Eternal!
  7. The '61RI you got from me? Taste, style, and setup vary, of course, but I thought that one was a pretty solid guitar. Still, it's a SG with a 60s slim taper neck. Not a lot of wood, or weight. What was your expectation with them? Was it like a first-time Studio owner expecting it to sound like a Les Paul, then finding out it didn't?
  8. Maybe it’s a north/south thing, because if the guys who cut down our’s had quoted $6500 I would have told them to GTFO. Up until the crane was lifting the trunk over the house, I enjoyed watching the guys work. They had a cable hooked to the trunk that led to the whisper chipper, so when they cut a branch it slid down directly into the chipper. So cool.
  9. $6500? Wow! We had a 100 year old oak that the PO of the house built the home's deck around that started dropping branches on the roof, so it had to go. The tree service had to rent a crane to lift the trunk over our house, and I think that was "only" $3000.
  10. Can't go wrong with Callaham for six screw trems. I'm on my second SuperVee, and I love everything about them except the feel. Maybe the steel block option will add that missing something.
  11. Add me, and I think AdmiralB maybe. I think he put in the Air Classics.
  12. I think those might be the Dimarzios I put in. If so, it’s a Breed bridge and... umm... What a great guitar!
  13. The gold top Newport I had with TV Jones was a bad-ass guitar, but truthfully, the 'trons were just a shade too "polite" for my tastes. So, as someone who's two favorite guitars are Strats and SGs with P90s, I was excited when the stars seemingly aligned and I was able to sell my Newport to buy an MIII. Then, my kid got sick and that money got spent. No regrets there, of course, but I sure regret missing out on that MIII because I doubt I'll be in the position to buy another one anytime soon.
