  1. I've been aware of them but didn't know how they related to the guitar world. We were out on the Washington coast last week and watched one after another log truck coming out of the clear cuts loaded with spindly little logs headed for the Asian market. "they took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum, charged all the people a dollar and an half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem as tho you don't know what you've got till its gone..." (sorry Joni)

  2. I wrote off Cort as ho hum until I got a Sunset 1 (takeoff of Gretsch Spectrasonic, with TV Jones, Grovers, good parts and great build), and then couple years later a great bass for not too much. I love jumbos. Points I like about this include not combining strap with output jack, seems their version of Lennon's Gibson, neck inlays (BTW same as on my Sunset 1). Oh, and the price. I like the looks and does remind me of Sears catalog offerings I'd gander while watching original Star Trek. Ah, lost youth. Really inexpensive but not cheap. If I needed/wanted another jumbo, it would be high on my list. Nice review Phil...

  3. Well I have some developments today. Back when I had the stock speaker in my amp, I tried taking the back of the amp off, to see what difference it made, and it didn't seem to help at all. I bought a G12k-85 a week ago (dated 1985 no less) for a bargain £25. I tried it today with the back off again, not expecting much, and lo and behold, it took away the excess bass and even added more chime and clarity too. I can now have the bass knob turned up a bit which is adding some nice colour and overtones to the higher frequencies too, making the amp sound better overall. I have rehearsal this Monday, so I can test it out properly, but it's looking good! I also had a look at the circuit board, and to do these mods, I would need to separate the board from the chassis, and so have decided to leave the mods for now, and see how it's goes. I have also found a local-ish amp tech who looks very good and could probably do the mods for £30 if I feel like it's needed. These mods would turn my amp into a JCM 800 2203 BTW, as the topology is very similar. So I kinda feel like I've wasted your time a bit, but at the same time, I have learned a bit and gained some wisdom, so maybe not. Either way I really appreciate your time in helping me, you're the hero I needed but didnt deserve haha. Thank you all guys, you're all top blokes (as we say 'ere in Plymuff) Cheers
