Re: Matamp Series 2000

Despite having absolutely no need at all for a big amp, I would love that.

Re: Shady Sustainer

Oooh, I'm interested in this. A wee while ago, I got the stuff I needed to make my own sustainer. It was pickup wire of a thicker gauge (dunno about electronics, this was preferred because of something to do with inductance vs resistance maybe...., can't remember, didn't really understand at the ti...

Re: Old Gretsch Synchromatic Junior Jet

I used to have one, but with a single Gretsch pickup (I forget the name). Somewhere around 2006/7. It wasn't a bad guitar, but not good enough to leave much of an impression either.

I’d enjoy that.

You’re correct, nylon saddles. Standard spec I think.

A quick couple of family photos of my current guitars (Martin excepted). Pretty happy with this selection TBH.

Re: Always on pedals, a popular option?

If you count reverb, then yes, I have that on pretty much all the time. I keep the amp turned up to about 7 (non MV Marshall), control the volume with an attenuator and the amount of drive with the volume controls on the guitar.

Re: Boss OS-2, anyone tried one?

A close escape, I think. He's got no cause to be pissed off, he was trying to pass off a broken pedal as ok, and that's a shitty move.

This may no longer be a thing.

I think that stopped in the early 80s - but would still be an issue if using old style decals I suppose.

I don’t think LPB was ever nitro - pretty sure it was acrylic and only the clear was nitro.

Re: pictures of your gear here

It just one switch I need to replace and then it should be good to go. I’ve ordered the switch, I’m just shit at soldering. If it's not PCB mounted then bring it over and I'll solder it if you like. Otherwise a TV repair man or similar will be able to do it for little money. Literally as pictured, ...

Re: pictures of your gear here

It will still be loud even with an attenuator, but my 18 watt is at least usable at home with it. Have you still got your old attenuator? You could get it fixed. It's worth getting one with treble boost on it, they suck a fair amount of treble out of the sound otherwise. It just one switch I need t...
