Fender Guitars - Leading the Pack in 2019!

Shoot, 2019 is just flat looking AMAZING for us guitar players!  Last week I wrote about how good Gibson was looking as they emerge from bankruptcy. But This week I'm going to ramble on a little about the OTHER great American Guitar company, who seemingly has the Midas touch and "gets" us players in a way that makes me wonder if they have secretly bugged the home of EVERY guitar player on the planet.  Yep, I'm talking Fender; and if you have dreampt of a guitar, chances are Fender already has it in...

Gibson Guitars in 2019 - Looking Good, VERY Good!

Howdy Gang.  After a couple of my previous blogs about how awful Gibson's quality had fallen and what stupid decisions they were making with the guitar models and features they were offering ... this blog might come as a bit of a shock.  Shoot, just a year or so I was even skeptical as to if Gibson even COULD stage a comeback!  But let me explain.  In the past weeks I've had several 2019 Gibson guitars on my bench; a Les Paul and a 335 for pickup upgrades and a J45 acoustic for a setup tweak. ...

Choose The Perfect Guitar TONE Pot

Hello once again fellow tone junkies!  Welcome to part two in my series on guitar pots, this time around we'll be talking TONE pots.  Some would say tone pot selection is not as important as volume pots, and I tend to agree ... but it's close, very close!  First, I'll mention that if you also want to know my take on tone CAPACITORS, check out this blog.  Okay, ready to roll?  Let's jump in.  Warning, some of the info will be exactly the same as in my previous blog about VOLUME pots, if you have...

Choose The Perfect Guitar Volume Pot !

Howdy y'all!  I've danced around this subjecty a few times but never did a full-on blog about it so here goes!  Please note that this will be part ONE in a two-part series, in part TWO, I'll discuss TONE pots.  There is a little confusion out there, and even some downright wrong info, so listen up ... your tone depends on it! Just in case you don't care about the how and why of this discussion and just want to know WHAT to use, here is the whole blog in a few bullet points: Use quality...

The Early Peavey Sleaper Amps - Tons of Tone For The Dollar

Howdy tone friends!  I promised another "sleeper amp" blog, but I'll do ya one better and turn y'all on to an entire line of stupidly inexpensive sleepers ... cool, right? I'm talking about the early Peavey tube amps and tube/ss hybrid amps.  Stick with me gang, these amps have been dissed for decades, so you may have decided they are crap without even HEARING one ... that would be a mistake; these amps have some serious mojo that's all their own.  Let's talk about them. Throughout this blog, I'll be...

The Early Marshall ValveState VS-100 Sleeper Amps - With a Speaker Upgrade

Okay, before I jump into why I truly believe the early Marshall Valvestate VS100 is indeed a terribly overlooked "sleeper amp", I need to tell you how I discovered these amps.  A couple weeks back two Marshall amps arrived in my shop for repair, one was a DSL 40 full tube amp and the other was a early 90's VS100.  In a nutshell, the (much more expensive) DSL really disappointed me, while the VS was way cooler than expected.  Rather than get too wordy, I'll use bullet-points, and I will NOT get into...

Vox Limited Edition AC15 To Carry WGS G12C Speakers.

When pros think Vox, they think AC30 and AC15 ... and when a limited edition of one of these flagship amps are issued, it's always something special.  Traditionally, the most dramatic change to limited edition Vox amps has been largely cosmetic,  previous editions sported British "Union-Jack" and other custom grill cloth designs as well as a plethora of tolex colors.  Over the years a couple of speaker upgrades have been available in the limited models, although none have ever strayed far from the distinct mid-...

The Best Replacement Speaker Upgrade For A Fender Twin Reverb

Hi Y'all and happy 2019 to ya! Today as I took my daily stride through the Musical Instruments listings on Craigslist I noticed several silver-faced Twin Reverbs at stupidly low prices.  Man ... could it be that the Twin Reverb has become an ultimate sleeper amp?  Maybe so!  My first "big" amp was a twin with the JBL D120F speakers, at the time they were kinda holy-grail level amps, but today folks generally find them too bright, too clean, too heavy, and more than anything else ... too LOUD!  Let...

What Guitar Players Need To Know about 2018

Gibson: Okay, I'm NOT(!!!) going to waste a lot of time on this one, since it's been covered to death already; I'm only going to share the take-away that ALL of us guitarists need to remember.  After years of f-ing up the great Gibson name with over-priced stupid guitar designs and features no one wanted, and a ill-conceived attempt at making Gibson a "consumer electronics brand" rather than a guitar company, Gibson went into bankruptcy in 2018.  Gibby has "re-structured" and has new folks at the helm who promise to...

The Perfect Gift for a Guitar Player (and it's FREE)

Hi guitar friends!  It's just before Christmas and I'm going to let you in on an important secret.  If any of you have a "significant other" who is having a hard time finding just the right gift for you, call their attention to this blog.  Sure, we would all love to find a '59 Les Paul under the tree, but I'm going to be realistic with y'all.  Over the years we have all been gifted with picks, strings, and all kinds of guitar related accessories; while it's nice to know our loved ones are thinking of us...
