    RIP John Sayers

    It wont mean much to many here but I've just heard of the passing of producer and studio design guru John Sayers John was active here on HR in the early 2000's and assisted many people even though he was from "down under", he will be missed in the Oz recording industry. 8-)

    Crazy sad accident at this weekends gig

    Geezus.......being the owner of a Taylor 12 string, I really feel for Brent and regardless of someone else's opinion they're a damn fine splendid guitar. You can tell Brent that some old guy "down under" feels for him. 8-)

    A dumb question re 456 vs 499

    Guys, I'm short on time to search the forums so a quick question...............My tascam ATR-60 16 is by default, set up for 456, however, I know a guy who has a heap of "one pass" 499 that he'll let go very cheaply. What differences will I notice between the two, if I don't re-calibrate the...

    Light and/or Muttley.........

    Do either of you guys know whether the centre block of a 335 is part of the neck timber or is it a seperate block that the neck glues into? I guess this question applies to any other 335 style guitars from Gibson. Cheers and beers for Christmas :cool:

    ESP guitars and associated stuff....opinions?

    Just wondering what the general feeling about ESP guitars is, especially their "cheaper" models. Also, they use Floyd Rose trems but what is the deal with those that are "licenced". Enquiring minds would like to know. :cool:
