I check in from time to time. Still a Rookie after 15 years.

 

I can change that for you - and for anyone else who would like me to. Just drop me a PM and let me know what you'd like your custom title to say, and as long as it's not too risque', I'll take care of it for you. :wave:

What was your user name in the past? Would you like me to help you retrieve your old account / password?

 

And yes, people still stop by. You did. :)

 

 

I just popped back in, ordered a new amp and it reminded me of the days when I would hang out in the amps forum. 
 

does anyone remember that Megadeth76487 guy? (His name was something like that). He just stands out in my mind as a bit of a classic. I wouldn’t mind checking out the forums again, was wondering if it had changed much...

Hey guys. Haven't posted in a while. 

 

I'm still playing but not as often as I used to, but when I do I have a blast. 

 

Stopped coming here because there's so little posts. It used to be crazy here! I lurk at TGP, don't post much. 

 

I'm still getting pedals here and there but just stuff I know I want to keep for good. There's only a couple of pedals I'd like to get. Still playing a 1979 FDR, went back to the  stock speaker after having some Weber's in there for years. Still play a MIJ Jaguar. Got a Epi Dot really cheap and put $500 low output PAFs (6.9k) and a 50's spec wiring harness in it and it sounds incredible, really brought a new level of tone to me that I didn't even know I was missing and made everything fun and new again. 

 

Hope everyone's good and have a good Christmas :)

Nice to see you! Merry Christmas to you too. The Epi Dot sounds like it turned out really well for you. Got any pics? 

 

Yeah I do. Not sure if I'll be able to get them to post though but I'll try. 

 

Basically I bought a used Dot from my local Long & McQuade. I've been looking for a semi-hollow for like 10 years, used to have a Peerless made Casino that was amazing but had to sell when I was in a bind in my late 20's (time has FLOWN eh?). For some reason this Dot just caught my attention.  Didn't have a price on it but it was in really great shape, played great acoustically, took it to the counter and asked how much (they go for $550 new in Canada) and he says "how about $335?". 

 

Sold!

 

Nice guitar, but I knew I was gonna put new pickups in it. Ended up putting in Klein Epic 58 PAF both 6.9k, a Schaller roller bridge (which is amazing btw) and Creamtone 50's spec wiring harness with bumblebees or whatever and a new nut and setup from a local guy (not totally happy with that) and also a Bigsby. Did the pickups, wiring and bigsby myself. Not fun trying to put new wiring into a 335! I think getting another set-up from someone better would make the guitar perfect as far as playability. But as is right now it plays decently but not quite where I'd like it, yet it  sounds incredible. I had no idea the kind of tone low-output PAFs delivered, just incredible sounding!

I've got an '01 Peerless Casino and it's one of my favorite guitars. I love that thing! Yeah - time keeps on marching on...

Canadian? Sounds like a deal! And it looks great too - very nice. Thanks for the picture.

I use to hang out here, learned a lot from a lot of amazing people, sold and traded a ton of pedals....I still have way too many.

so how close are you to the redneck riviera?   are you thinning the herd?
