Re: Fax Guitars Mercury 2

Goofy bits are what makes a Performer. The whole idea of them was goofy.

Might as well do an Acoustisoniformer at this point....

Fuck I really want a Performer....

Re: Fax Guitars Mercury 2

I love it, and love the pickups, but it need more goofy bits. No locking trem seems like a misstep.

Re: SoCal Amp repair?

I've always been a bit of a coward, but with a second hand amp would it not be an idea to get it a once over? Is a massive hole appearing in the side of a tube a normal wear and tear type thing, or a possible symptom of something else going on?

Re: NGD - LTD Viper 256P

Very nice! Quite a collection of pretty, red, not quite SGs. As someone who always liked the look of SGs but could never get on with how flimsy they feel, these both look great.

Re: Notched straight edges

I'd have thought that was the case. But, and maybe I'm being dense here, is there a reason not to make your own? They seem expensive for what they are. A fret scale template needs to be accurate, but this is a straight line with notches. I'd be tempted to buy a cheap steel ruler, make markings on it...

Re: Sans drummer help

Given how good digital is these days, a big analogue amp is getting harder to justify, and guitarists probably would benefit from just having a "make loud box" like you say. But we won't go for that, because we're all children. So I reckon you're going to see more things that are basically...

Freddy, that's easy! You simply put the guitars through and vocals cheap bluetooth interface and probably that fixes everything.

Re: Sans drummer help

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to hook up 2 pair of headphones to the MPC... but it would hinder your movement :( I'm in a similar boat, though we use an Octatrack and a Drumbrute. Luckily my partner in that band has a PA system cobbled together, so if he's not doing sound at the gig a...

Re: Electric Xii Build

Gorgeous.

Although I'm a bit put out that this is finally done. I feel like it should be perpetually in progress, even in just a very superficial way like a toggle cap not being installed or something.

Realise I didn't include the link earlier. These are the ones I use. Possibly different size. Think it's the 10" one anyway.

Re: Sans drummer help

Is this just for monitoring? So absolute quality, while nice, isn't really important? If so, I'd be tempted by big keyboard and bass amps too. I realise that chucking more speakers at it probably isn't the smartest solution but fuckit, chuck more speakers at it. In school I use these a lot both for ...

Re: Matamp Series 2000

They've never had these as part of their lineup, which is astonishing. A Matamp pedant writes: actually, they have reissued them before (with the reverb unit) around 2007ish. When I had my Minimat made, I had it made in a Series 2000-style. I have no need for one but I really want one. My visit to ...

Matamp Series 2000

It looks like Matamp are bringing back their original, Peter Green amp, the Series 2000. They've never had these as part of their lineup, which is astonishing. Apparently they're going to start making dedicated reverb units too, incase you find your Mooer 'verb to be too convenient and with too many...

Re: Music stang!

I thought I'd already commented in this thread. This looks brilliant. A hot and tapped P-90 would be great here. Full coil for something pushing a humbucker, tapped coil for vintage toanz. This would be a far better addition to the Grandad's Secrets series or whatever bullshit Fender call their weir...

Re: Shady Sustainer

Is there any way of tweaking it? Does string height do anything? Is there a trim pot on the amplifier part or anything?
