  1. I remember the company from back in the late 70's early 80's. If it plays good and sounds good it is good. Happy vintage guitar day. I have a Gibson ES 335 dot with a light flamed maple top in classic sunburst. It has classic 57's in it, and plays and sounds amazing.
  2. I'd love to own a Quilter, but I wasn't sure which one I wanted. I talked to the company and they said the 8" combo was a lot of amp. I was thinking for like another 100-200 bucks the 10" and 12" speaker one would sound better with a deeper bass end. I definitely don't need the 12" HD one. I never really played through one either and I was gonna grab on sight unseen. https://www.quilterlabs.com/index.php/series/micropro-mach-2/
  3. I have a few older Fender Strats, 1 PRS CU 22, and a Couple of Gretsch's from there Professional Collection. Never had and issue, so I have never used anything with a roller bridge. Sounds like I maybe missing something.
  4. I didn't know who he was so I looked him up. Naw Steven king is older. Similar look though.
  5. My Fender Twin sits in my attic. It's the last of the push pull master volume Twins Fender made, when returning to the black face plate. The next year the canned the Twin for the Twin Reverb II. I turn it on every once in a while. All 135 watts of it. I have a variac to slowly bring stuff up to power. It cost me my Musicman 65 2X10 combo, and 125 buck new. Back in the day when PA gear was costly and amps not so much. I really should ditch it and move on, but I have a lot of smaller amps too. It's in killer shape too, but ain't worth much. I used to A/B that with a 2X12 Marshall JCM 800 50 watt combo. That's in my attic too. Memories light the corners of my mindMisty water-colored memories of the way amps were
  6. I didn't even know Casio made a guitar.

    Third amp head

    Don't run you amp without a speaker of a load on it. I can run tow amps on a Radial ABY pedal box I have, but that's it. I have seen switchers like his that will allow you to run 3 amps https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ABCPro--morley-abc-pro-3-button-switcher-combiner-pedal?mrkgadid=3331289787&mrkgcl=28&mrkgen=gpla&mrkgbflag=0&mrkgcat=guitars&&acctid=21700000001645388&dskeywordid=92700046934877524&lid=92700046934877524&ds_s_kwgid=58700005283398557&ds_s_inventory_feed_id=97700000007215323&dsproductgroupid=373037010169&product_id=ABCPro&prodctry=US&prodlang=en&channel=online&storeid=&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&locationid=9001727&creative=332063179833&targetid=aud-418160834130:pla-373037010169&campaignid=1709882817&gclid=Cj0KCQjw8rT8BRCbARIsALWiOvREuVwWQqLk9QByiJ0Gkl-zmzAX_Kkre7PUAtJlpwFYu5wWkhK0N6UaAjGHEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds If you're looking to switch amps and speaker cabs at the same time, it will be more complicated but not impossible.
  8. I'm not to familiar with the Seagull and Norman line, but I looked and saw that Company called LONG & McQUADE has a many places in Canada. 300 or so isn't a huge budget, but you can find something. I am familiar with the Yamaha line and picked this out. You'll still want a case, and a tuner, and so on. https://www.long-mcquade.com/69622/Guitars/Acoustic_Guitars/Yamaha/FG800_Spruce_Top_Acoustic_Guitar_w_Gloss_Finish.htm Traditional western body• Solid spruce top• Nato/Okume back & sides - similar sound characteristics to mahogany's warm sound and rich midrange• Newly developed scalloped bracing• Traditional looks and outstanding quality• New scalloped bracing produces louder and stronger sound in the low- to mid-range
  9. This should be a nice reminder with the winter months soon approaching to hydrate your acoustic instruments. The guitar looks fine. You should have a slight bulge on the back side too. Flats tops aren't exactly flat. Hey Keller nice to see you drop in.
  10. I'm not sure, but the made in USA Charvel's say made in the USA and do not have a licensed Floyd on them Digits ae like you posted, made in Japan. To insert a pic, got to OTHER MEDIA in the far lower right and INSERT IMAGE, which might not work. YOU might be able to just drop the image in to the box here too. My IMAGE INSERT is filled and one bitch I have had is you can't delete Photos. It's been broken here for moth and needs to be fix.
  11. When in Canada, Larrivee makes some nice stuff and they were once based out of Canada and are not in California. It's a big world out there, so shipping anything is not bad, if you find something in the USA and what to ship it to Canada. Any budget in mind.
  12. Weird. I know Ricky guitar have a blend knob, but couldn't you just turn down the volume a bit on the pick up with the hotter output. I guess, If you like, you like. Personally I wouldn't have done anything like this. Any idea what pull magnets you used?
  13. I don't know too much about Mark Farner, except for the fact he played in GFR. I remember the Gibson L-5S back in the 70's, but they didn't come out til 1972. The Album E Pluribus Funk was released in Nov of 1971.
  14. I also have a Black Gretsch Power Jet w/ TV Jones pups and a Bigsby. The thing is amazing. The other Gretsch I have is a Tennessee Rose. They Players Edition series. This guy eventfully strums a few chords plug in to an amp, at the end of the vid.
  15. As they say Happy New Guitar Day. I bought my last tele in 1985. I'd buy another one, but I have two already. One of my fav guitars
  16. Inverse square law Pic: if I have your question right. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/Acoustic/invsqs.html I think I'm the only one here on HC that has a degree and Physics. I just happen to see you question here.
  17. Similar but slightly different. Both beautiful and have great tones. Go to the last video for comparison.
  18. I'm a big fan of pick up that are not to hot. Let the amp do the dirt work. The Duncan 59 is a nice pup and so is the Dimarzio PAF.
