  1. Well, in the last month or so I have started gassing hard for a new amp...I just sent my Lil Dawg 5e3 off to my collaborator AC for a song...and will need to replace it. A Lil Dawg Pug would do nicely. But there is a Gravelin pickup I need to buy too.
  2. My sole acoustic is a close friend...a 1989 Westerly Guild D25 that was my sole guitar for a solid decade. I actually wore divots into the rosewood fingerboard...yet somehow the frets are still good. Fast neck, great tone and even if I don’t touch it for 6 months, the minute I pick it up it just feels right. Sitka spruce top over mahogany. Arched back. I love that guitar. I pulled it out to record with it just yesterday.....needed to clumsily fingerpick a country blues... I would love a parlor size though. They just look so cool.
  3. The black just adds a certain something to that particular guitar that is just badass....
  4. If agathis is like alder in tone, then that is a good thing. Alder , IIRC, is not too far removed from mahogany as a tone wood is the frequency ranges it provides...and Did it Gibby use some maple necks in the 70s on some Lesters?
  5. Sorry about the DOA speaker, dude...but am glad the seller is making it right.
  6. Ok.These are fantastic speakers at a great price. I am trying to talk my pal AC into unassing some money to get one. Simply rockin’ speakers.
  7. My fave speaker ever. Breaks up fairly quick once broken in but yes, they are LOUD. Killer with any circuit. The only alnico that compares is an EV SRO and it is completely different sounding, much cleaner and smoother. Fangs have grit. Wonderful in a Voxy or Marshall circuit....Fender too. Did I say I love this speaker?
  8. Slightly OT, but I bought a Red Fang 10 off Bubs and it is simply a fab alnico. The 12” Fang has always been my fave in most applications, but the 10 sounds every bit as good but a little faster due to the size. If he sells the others, someone here should buy them.
  9. I had a TT 40/40 in my old Lil Dawg Pug for a while and found it was the PUNCHIEST speaker I had ever heard. I bet the 10s would kill with my blonde Bassman.
  10. Rock it, brother...rock it...please tell us he took the 1960 in partial trade...
