  1. but..do you have any strong feelings you'd like to share with the group?😉
  2. okay, let's try this another way, since no one understands what you are asking for when you say 'modern' or 'progressive' [I certainly do not]...how about you give us an example that we can start from?
  3. look for Keeley overdrive pedals first, because they are typically top notch, reliable, 'clean' , etc. Then check Earthquaker, then check Mad Professor...and so on. It may actually be 'fuzz', not really OD, that you want, and Keeley does that quite well as well. It really comes down to the sound in your head and finding the little box that gets you there. There are so many pedal builders now, from low end like Behringer and the Dan Armstrong/Dunlop pedals to primo boutique builders...do a search for overdrive pedals...and a search for distortion pedals...and a search for fuzz pedals...and you will see that I understated by saying 'many'... from Analogman to ZVex...and beyond!
  4. Pogo, I had noticed your absence and was concerned something may have happened to you! Glad you are okay! There really should be no reason to not be able to access...unless maybe it is a site security protocol setting or something of that nature. I will say that my old link comes up with an error message, but still hits the page.
  5. we prefer to think of it as an exhumation...or 'dumpster diving'
  6. I also came up empty on 'Vulcan' guitars...the name has been used for models by Fernandes, and a few other builders, but this could easily be a one-off by an independent luthier. Is it set neck or bolt on? Agreed the body cut is pure 1980 era Rich Bich, but the controls are wrong. This is based on the 2nd version of the Bich, the first was the 10 string model, where there were 2 D, G, B and E strings, like a 12 string, but the second set's tuners were at the bottom of the body, in the big notch. After a year or so, they started making a standard 6 string model...I knew a few people who had the 10 string model, and took off the 'second course' strings because it made it harder to play lead, and they got very muddy sounding at high volume with distortion. The 'Rico' family's company were originally here in LA, and have been bought and sold many times...back around '75/'76 I [very briefly] owned what may arguably be the worst [or at least most painful to play] guitar body design in modern history, the BC Rich 'Seagull'
  7. or for an overly extended period of time...
  8. I've fixed a few over the last four decades...sometimes it is the pot, sometimes the inductor, occasionally, on real old ones a cap goes south...glad it is working!
  9. might have been the inspiration for the Epi FlameKat
  10. last date of thread he resurrected...2008...but it isn't...
  11. interestng..I thought the Gamblers had more cards on them?
  12. probably my SG...bought it on a whim basically because the guy who owned it sold it to me dead cheap...it was not in great shape, needs a lot of work [new nut, refin, p-u replacement]. That was 20 years ago...and aside from a set-up, I have done nothing to it. It has a DiMarzio SD in the bridge, which I really find too dark for soloing, and a DiMarzio PAF at the neck, which I am much more partial to, but the neck diving and the appearance keep me from gigging with it...I should sell it...or fix it up...just..haven't..after 20 years. It is sad, because I was able to get the action perfect, but it and my resonater get the least work out... Freeman, wanna trade that Martin 12 for an SG?😉
