    Fret Job

    Nice! Thanks for posting this. The new frets look great and I too enjoy larger frets. Thank you for the documentation of the issues you experienced. I enjoy working on guitars as a hobby and while I find woodworking fun and not too hard so long as I take my time, I find finishing to be a deceptively difficult art. I love seeing perfect finishing jobs but I also appreciate hearing the trials and solutions others encounter - I usually learn more that way. Thanks!
  2. Wow, well it sounds like this pedal is pretty feature-rich...and a prine candidate for a re-paint. Did Digitech mistake shoegazers for death metal?
  3. Man, I love that look. Here's a random picture I found with a cursory Google : [ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","title":"166169%2F166169-CS501110-8-HiRes.jpg","data-attachmentid":32471114}[/ATTACH]
  4. Yes, and sadly before he died I didn't know who he was. He played a lot of great stuff, but man, the feel in this 'less-is-more' intro will always be amazing. [video=youtube;DjydOI4MEIw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjydOI4MEIw[/video]
  5. Though not frequenting forums of late I'm still playing and chasing gear. For some time I've been looking at a unified solution that would create a signal you could send direct but also play through a cab when required. In this scenario a clean power amp is really valuable. This approach would also allow you to select your pre-amp of choice. I was a little frustrated looking though pricey options - I mean, I'm not running an Axe FX or Kemper, more like Tech 21 pedals. But then I started messing with bass as I keep playing with other guitar players and someone needs to hold down the low end. I noticed more than a few bass players have racks with a PA amp, e.g QSC, Crown, as a power amp, and a separate pre-amp. This seems like a pretty cost effective solution for both, I mean in theory I could just rack up a PA amp and use it for both bass and guitar. Is anybody rocking a separate power amp?
  6. Thanks, that was cool. I read a bit about their NAMM presence but this offers some 'from the horse's mouth' context. I'm not exactly Gibson fan, but this approach makes sense to me and I largely agree with your sentiments. Guitars aren't cars (though sometime a Gibson might cost about the same ), high quality Goldtops will always sell, as will gorgeous bourbon bursts and '66 fullguard SGs in cherry. If they can maintain quality and simply release limited edition finishes I think they can sustain.
  7. HNAD! Nothing quite like nailing a sound you're looking for. :thu: Bonus points for moving in a lighter direction weight-wise. :)
