Re: The ultimate list of cheap copies of great pedals thread!

Yeah, there are some fucking howlers in that (admittedly, nine year old) list; like the very first one listed is wrong (although the Mooer Trelicopter is a Tremulator clone, if you want one). Is it worth adding a big "buyer/Pens Beware - this list hasn't aged well" banner on the first post...

What the actual fuck is happening to me?

(also, was that really Michael Gove, or am I entering into the gullible years very publicly?).

Re: are our 1990's AVRI's really $3K now?

They've been like this in the UK for a while now Rob - reckon they maybe peaked early this year? On their way down again (because we have no money, and need to buy crossbows quickly for our impending Mad Max future).

Re: Pickup options for a Strat project

Sub-£100, I reckon you'd easily get quite a decent set on eBay/thefretboard. Fender Fat 50s are stealthily brilliant, and match the pickups I was banging on about above.

Re: Pickup options for a Strat project

Yeah, the market's really shifted since I built my strat (pre-Brexit, Torygeddon etc). I was about to recommend Rose Pickups, but they're out of business now, plus importing from the states isn't viable any more I feel. Grey-bottom U-stamped Tokai pickups are the best strat pickups I've heard; my Ro...

Re: Studio Snaps!

I too saw these on (I think) Instagram. Was particularly heartened to see The Iceman (as I think of Freddy). And his angular 70's-design guitar.

Re: Pre CBS custom colours

Came in to recommend Ocean Turquoise as it does a lot of the things mentioned above, but just learned Fender didn't start using it til 1965.

Re: I can see by what you carry

While I still maintain that the shimmy and shake from the long string length is all part of the fun of the baritone experience, that certainly sondz kool.

Also, I have that t-shirt in the inverse colourway.

Re: NGD - now we are (nearly) 50

All the SG Classics are. They're the ones with "Classic" written on the trussrod cover. They've recently done some variations on "SG Standard P90", and I can't vouch for those.

I'm setting up the tuneomatic on my LP, and while I normally slam the tailpiece for maximum sustain, I caught myself thinking "hang on: will this mess with my compliance?".

Re: NGD - now we are (nearly) 50

Missed this bit... SGs are great, but I’ve struggled with finding any that have a big enough neck. Not a slim taper fan in the slightest. It's why I always disliked SGs (see my "Oh, it's good enough for Kelly Jones but not for you?" farrago), but it was a MIJ Tokai SG that made me first di...
