  1. The Lovepedal 65 Reverb is fantastic. It really does sound like a Fender verb. Hermida Spring is very good. If you can swing it, the Flint is very versatile and sounds incredible. It is what I use now. The 70s Plate setting is addictive.
  2. Will do. Someone said to replace the Phase Inverter with a 12at7 a la old BF Fenders to add brightness as well. Since I have one handy and it’s raining so I cannot mow today, this may be a good day to try it.
  3. Ok, I bought the cap to do the mod @HoboMan recommends. I’ll likely post this on TGP so I grab a Winnie. If it doesn’t sell quick I’ll throw that new cap in and buy a new correct headshell from @Travis and rock all sorts of hell with this amp.
  4. My older brother had a black 69 Roadrunner with a 440 Mag. Cars were sooooooo cool in the 60s-70s.
  5. How does it sound compared to an AC15? Does it have the chimey Vox grit?
  6. The R2R Electric is my fave with an AC107 trannie. I got mine before he blew up into ridiculous prices….but thre are a bunch of great germanium TBs out there.I also love my Monsterpiece MonsterDrive and have loved a JHS Banana Boost and a Diaz Texas Ranger. But any ge TB that is faithful to the Rangemaster circuit will be good provided a good trannie is picked and tuned.
  7. I think the eventual success of the Explorer, V, Jazzmaster, & Firebird shapes show that changes are possible, but they gotta look good. The Moderne and the Guild Thunderbird didn’t make it. This is an interesting convo.
  8. Absolutely agree. Us guitarists are by and large hardcore traditionalists both in gear and in playing….so when a true innovator like Hendrix or EVH comes along, it knocks us for a loop and then the changes come. That said, Fender, Gibson, and Rickenbacker really nailed it early on and most “new” guitar innovations are ugly as sin. I would hope us traditionalists would respond favorably to a pragmatic design that has pleasing aesthetics….but I ain’t holdin’ ’ my breath…
  9. Excellent! Thanks for posting this! If I keep my 18, I’ll do this…easy-peasy. 4 touches with a hot iron….2 to remove the old cap and 2 to solder in the new cap. Less that 5 minutes.
