  1. The only gripes I have with this guitar are with the electronics. Epi did 'upgrade' to CTS pots, but the taper is still terrible. It's not gradual at all. I can roll off the volume or tone controls and there's not much of a change till I get to around 3, then it almost completely goes all the way down....nothing gradual about them. And I wish they would have reversed the direction of the pots like they did on my Tokai and Greco lefty guitars. In a couple of weeks I plan on ordering a pre-wired set of pots and caps from RS Guitarworks and dropping them in.
  2. Right out of the box it plays just fine....pickups are OK as are the pots and stuff. Nice guitar for the money....and it's a white lefty which are really hard to find!

  4. Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" (the album)...I love David Bowie's production on it.
  5. I used a Hiwatt SA-212 when recording our album...it was in the studio and it sounded better for certain things than my Marshall. You can hear it on this tune...I used it for the rhythm guitar tracks on this song. https://app.box.com/shared/aosdkd2dkm
  6. Not really...I bought a small box non-master volume 50 watt Marshall in 1970...I've stuck with non-master Marshalls ever since. Never needed anything else.
  7. I'm so glad I'm not in the music industry any more.
  8. I've always played tube amps...so back in the 80s I started collecting tubes...I have a couple of boxes of NOS tubes down in my basement....Mullard, GE, Phillips and others...one of these days I'll start listing them on Ebay.
  9. https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/music/singer-leon-redbone-dies-69-n1012041?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma&fbclid=IwAR3SDi6n8c7hdhN5OsHgIvVSjTBVyG-JquUR-qAfCvVLkhkpasglToHNW_Y I always liked him.
  10. I love this recording...drums and bass to the left... vocals both sides....everything else to the right!
  11. IMO it doesn't get much better than Nick Lowe's production on "Nick the Nnife".
  12. I would go with 'Love Over Gold' instead of 'Brothers in Arms'.
  13. I haven't done one in over 10 years...it's just a wire jumper between two lugs on the toggle switch...just can't remember which two.
  14. I pretty much live on the bridge pickup regardless of what type of guitar I'm playing...I always modify my strats so the tone control works on the bridge pickup.
  15. I love Japanese guitars...here's my Tokai ES-120...fantastic guitar. [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"tokai long gaurd.jpg","data-attachmentid":32511737}[/ATTACH]
  16. In the 70s I had an origina 50's black Les Paul Custom with three pickups...I reversed it...sounded great but no access to the upper frets so I traded it...don't even remember what I traded it for...lol.
  17. My Denon TN-D620 has pitch control for both the CD and cassette decks. [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"denon repeat.png","data-attachmentid":32508428}[/ATTACH]
  18. I don't know...I prefer a more traditional look, I'm very conservative when it comes to guitars. [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"tokai long gaurd.jpg","data-attachmentid":32289306}[/ATTACH]
