Re: NGD - LTD Viper 256P

Back in 1981 my late friend, recording engineer and producer Martin Rex , was sent by 3M to the USA to be trained on maintaining their new digital studio recorders. He brought back an SG; the neck snapped in transit. He had it fixed and it snapped again when knocked off a floor stand. He had it fixe...

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 basicall...

Fender prices in the UK are anecdotally in pounds whatever they are in dollars in the US.

Re: Pedalboard modellers: Whats your pick?

Getting a bit off topic here, but for Bacchus... I hooked up my M13 MIDI Out to my M9 MIDI In. Tap tempo is sent - but so are any selections made using 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, 4A and 4B on the M13. I suppose that could be useful if you could work out how to use those combinations. ISTR that expression pedal...

For the other (rockier) project I'm...

Re: '99 Stratocaster pickup query

Not that it matters too much now that it's sold, but if you believe the site below (which personally I am inclined to do based on various other forum posts I found), this guitar is a bit of an oddball that was only sold for a couple years. Pieced together from MIM and "Eastern" parts...as...
