The Ultimate Speaker Tonequest ... I need YOUR input!

So, my blogging has taken a bit of a backseat to life the last two weeks, but things are fixin’ to heat up!  I’m going to assemble a group of my fellow Nashville guitar tone affectionados for some serious black-belt speaker tone shootouts.  Will you all help?  I want some "outside" opinions.  Let me know what speakers YOU want to see compared.  I promise, we will get to as many as possible.  You can post your requests here as a response to this blog, on my YouTube channel, my Facebook page, or email me directly. Oh, and give us as much detail as...

Why Play Guitar?

Ladies, I apologize in advance: this blog is going to be written from a distinctly male perspective!  I’m taking the week off from my relentless pursuit of tone and speaker dissection to have a little fun.  Next week we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming; but for now, let’s kick back and have a little fun.  Ya ready? Okay guys, when it comes right down to it, why did you start playing guitar?  Be honest, to get chicks!  Right?  Dude, when I was 13, I was like human girl repellant.  I was barely over five feet tall, and was...

Lab Series L5, L7, & L9: the Ultimate Sleeper Amp?

Hey fellow ampaholics, my name is Vaughn, & I’ve got somthin’ to share with the group!  I’m a Big, Big, BIG fan of so-called "sleeper amps", you know, the amps that sound friggin awesome, but can be bought by the average working guitarist.  Hey, who doesn’t love them? In previous blogs I have featured the totally toneful, and surprisingly inexpensive Marshall Artist 3203, and the Randall RG80ES, the hands-down king of 80’s hair-metal tone.  Well, as promised, this week I’m blowing the dust off of what I believe is the best value in vintage amps available on...

Lab Series L7, Amp Blown, or Just The Speakers? (The big Rub)

Top of the mornin’ to ya!  It’s a fair sunny day in the south of the USA as I pen this blog.  If the sun’s not shinning where you are, I pray you have some light that shines from the inside out! I’m considering this blog to be the first in a two-part blog on my newly acquired Lab Series L7, a fine vintage solid-state 4x10 amp from the late 1970’s.  I was a kid just learning to play when the Lab Series amps were the "big thing".  They were used by a lot of big names back then, and they cost a heckuva lot more than the average guitar player could afford. ...

WGS Thanks YOU!

Fender Vibro-Champ XD, the Ultimate Bedroom Amp?

Hi-diddly-ho fair blogeriffic frinds.  I’m an amp guy, I don’t try to hide it.  I’d rather play an average guitar through a fantastic Amp than the other way around.  Can I get an "amen" from anybody out there?  The problem is that syrupy, smooth, warm tube-tone usually only comes once an amp is at a fairly high volume.  Even my smallest of tube amps, a silver-face Fender Champ, needs to get fairly loud before it finds its voice. My little Vox Pathfinder 15R sounds decent at low volume, but it is kind of a one-trick-pony, and even it sounds pretty...

Ultimate 5-pickup Fender Stratocaster, Worlds Most Versatile Guitar?

I’m sub-titling this: "Vaughn’s Halloween Blog: The Frankenstrat Gets Even Creepier"!  (Frankenstrat v2.0) My #1 electric is a 1995 Fender ’62 RI, and for the record, it came to me already quite ... well, shall we say "modified"?  When I found it at Nashville Used Music, it had a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the Bridge & a Seymour Duncan mini-humbucker in the neck position, a "swimming pool" cavity route, Graphtec string-saver saddles, and a roller nut & accompanying string tree.  After just a year or two, I put a Custom Shop Texas Special Strat pickup...

Proper Size Speaker spade Lugs: The Definitive Answer!

If, like me, you are ALWAYS swapping speakers around, you have no-doubt grown tired of constantly soldering and re-soldering the connections.  Properly done, a solder connection is an awesome thing, but man, what a pain!  The fumes, the hassle, ugg. Not to mention that most speaker companies will only accept a speaker return if the lugs have not been soldered on. And so it is that I have begun to put lug connectors (female spade disconnects) on all my amps & cabinets that don’t already have them.  There seems to be a bit of confusion on just what size the...
