  1. looks a lot like the X-Vive V19 (which is cheaper than the EHX)
  2. Only few Chucksters were made , and these cutesy amps have been out of production for quite some time already. So if you're the lucky owner of one of these Chucksters, well, who knows, it could be the Dumble of battery powered amps ...
  3. yup, it's official https://www.boss.info/uk/products/sy-1/
  4. Boss just announced the SY-1 [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"Boss-SY-1.jpg","data-attachmentid":32550230}[/ATTACH]
  5. in that price range, go for used and look around for a 80s-90s made in Japan guitar Burny RLG-50 Greco EG-500 Tokai LS-50 or something newer, Edwards E-LP series
  6. Well, let me correct myself then it's the Billionaire series that I spotted in the local shop, not the Millionaire series and I also spotted the new pedals are made in Korea also, the pedals are on pre-order now, expected to ship early April, also likely to sell out on pre-order so good chance that these will never make it to my local shop
  7. I think it's Craig but he prolly has no recollection of it
  8. Can do, but it could take a while Local shop carries Dano pedals, and they only just received their first shipment of the Millionaire series (pedals are already out for nearly 2 years) THe new pedals start shipping on April 1 and are 149$ street Anyway, these are nice enough pedals, but I keep reading complaints about poor quality switches The new pedals seem to have sturdier switches PG has a review with demo https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/28722-danelectro-announces-the-eisenhower-fuzz-and-the-breakdown
  9. well, I want to try 'em first and then decide they sure look nice though
  10. yes that was an enjoyable read and also had some stuff I missed out on in other NAMM reporting Taey Kang guitars and Timespeed are new to me good to see the Danelectro pedals in the flesh, I only saw a press release, kind of interested in the Breakdown well, if it ever gets here thanks for posting the report, good job
  11. thanks for sharing the report I enjoyed reading it, and it featured a lot of products that I did not see/find/ notice in the other NAMM reporting (plenty of that but mostly similar coverage) The Gigatone GT-1 is interesting, going to keep that on my watch list.
  12. [QUOTE=Luke17;n32470182] Did I ever mention the story to you about how I butchered a pristine 1966 Fender XII in 1979? well, here goes.. bought it for 15 dollars and a small bag of weed from a Musician friend. i lopped off the node on the headstock and the bottom part of the body..put a telecaster bridge on it..I turned it into a six string.. I filled in the holes of one set of tuners with doweling. Russ Ballard of Argent was playing a Strat that he had modded..it had space age holes drill through the body..I tried to emulate that look with minimal success. I painted the body with Candy Apple red spray paint. I was playing it in a bar gig ..the bar door was open and I saw a Hassidic Dude standing outside.. when we went on break he waved to me to come out.. He asked me if the guitar was a F XII. I was wondering how he could even recognize it after I had raped and violated it? It still had the tortoise shell pickguard, and the original PUs. He asked me if any other original parts remained.. I told him the case, the bridge, and the tuners were in the case. He offered me 125 bucks.. He picked it up next day @my House..turns out he was a Rabbi visiting family and he was from Montreal Canada.. About 6 months later he sends me a CD of his band..The Fender XII is the CD cover, beautifully restored, original sunburst finish. He signed the CD and wrote, ‘You are off the hook from Fender Karma Retribution.’ I like to start of this story as; ‘ A Rabbi walks into a bar...’[/QUOTE] cool story ! actually the Fender XII is top of my wishlist, and just looked, it's not super cheap but not too expensive either, the other stuff on my wishlist would be luxury items, hmmm, the XII would also be a luxury and not really something I desperately need, in fact, I don't need any more gear, oh well, that's what I keep telling myself
