    NGD: 1951 Epiphone Broadway Regent

    Just got it. Plays great. Good strong voice. So I suck at photography. It's going to get a new pickguard and pickup. The Gibson BJB it's got now doesn't like bronze strings, but as an acoustic it's definitely a keeper.

    Cool Guitar Purchase

    So my daughter decided it was time to buy herself a guitar. She had about $500 saved and asked me to help. We hit some shops and figured out quickly that she was going to want something about the size of a Martin 000. We tried everything we could find in three shops including some used Martins...

    My new song.

    Don't worry about sparing my feelings WATER By Trey Caldwell It seems to me, the water in the river just can't win. Sweet water from the mountains knows the ocean's 'round the bend. and sea ain't got no choice but to let the river in. no matter how sweet the water it gets...

    Old song I wrote, Thought I'd see what you thought

    I wrote this in the Eighties. At the time the big world crisis was in El Salvador. The country was ruled by a dictator named Magana. He was opposed by a rebel group that called themselves the Sandinistas that had formed in Nicaragua. I started thinking about all the people there that were not...

    I did it. My new amp lives!!!

    So I just finished building a TC-15 Amplifier kit. IT LIVES!!! It was something I had wanted do do since forever. I've got some tweaking to do, but the cleans are very tasty. You can dial up an amazing variety rich harmonic voices. Something is sounding harsh when I crank it up. I'll have to...

    Amp or electric cello

    My wife has a Yamaha SVC-110. We need to amplify it. We would like to achieve as close to an acoustic cello sound as we can get. Any versatility after that would be a plus. It would mostly be used in an acoustic guitar centered band at relatively low volume. Any experience or advice?

    Attenuator Questions

    What, if anything, is the downside to oversizing an attenuator? The amp I want to attenuate is a Gibson GA20 RVT (12 watts). I'm looking at a Weber Micro-Mass rated for 15 watts. I am not likely to dime the amp. I want the sound I get well shy of that at lower volume. I'm convinced that the...

    Design your custom shop guitar here

    I'm just curious. If you could buy a guitar from a major manufacturer tricked out any way you wanted, what would you come up with? I'm thinking about standard designs (LP, Strat, D-28, Your favorite Schecter, whatever). If you could have one of those built any way you wanted what would you do...

    Want to try Fralin P-92s

    OK, So I have a Heritage H-555 (Basically like a Gibson 335). It's got Fralin PAFs in it. I want to try Fralin P-92s in it. That's basically a P-90 with a split coil like a P bass pickup. I'm thinking of going to 300K pots and .022 caps. The new pickups have more gain than Fenders but less...

    Suggestions: Mic for Live Female Vocals

    I'm playing out with a talented but inexperienced female guitarist/singer. She doesn't sound like Lucinda Williams but she's similar in range and approach. I need to get her a mic. I'm satisfied with the guitar sound I'm getting, The mic would be just for vocals. It would be a real plus if the...

    I Want To Buy A Variac

    How big does a variac need to be to handle an old amplifier. Does looking at the amp's fuse tell me all I need to know? What's your usual startup procedure when you don't know anything about an amps history? Any other advise on variac selection would be appreciated. What are the pros and cons...

    So Long Sam

    A friend of mine died over the weekend. His name was Sam Moss. He was the best damn guitar played I ever personnally knew. He lived his life with more heart and soul than most. I'm going to miss him an awful lot. I loved guitars when I met Sam, but he taught me to see them in Technicolor. Some...
