    wah problem

    I have a friend with a VOX wah that is giving him problems, model V847. I know there are quite a few around here who are technically inclined, maybe someone might be up on this... This wah has a tendancy to want to pick up AM radio broadcasts. Apparently the problem is most pronounced if the...

    AC30 info

    I have a friend that has what I understand to be some kind of modern Vox AC30 reissue amp. He likes the tone he gets when it is really cranked, but not all the volume. As such it sounds like a candidate for a good output stage dual master volume mod. I haven't dealt with AC30s and similar...

    R/T switch ring, originals versus others

    I found out about an apparate stash of old LesPaul rhythm/treble switch rings, in some parts someone inherited from some old repair guy, and naturally I would like to check them out ASAP. I wanted to find some details on exactly how to tell the original switchrings from the post '68 version...

    Marshall amp knobs

    Anybody happen to know where someone might be able to get their hands on a few knobs for the infamous Marshall JMP tube amps of the 1970s? We are talking about the set screw type not push on. It looks like the currently available new Marshall replacement set screw knobs are somewhat...

    strange LP model, MikeSlub?

    I have a friend who found out about a possible LP guitar and amp package deal, Marshall head and cab. He is really only interested in the amp/cab so was sort of wondering whether it might be worth it to go for the deal on the assumption he would be able to find someone interested in the guitar...

    planning for Marshall Amp mod/conversion

    I'm looking for some input/advice on what to consider, what may be important versus not so important, if I want to convert a Marshall 100 watt Super Bass to a Super Lead. The amp in question started out life as a Super Bass, made in 1973 with a PCB, and good ole "Rosemary" had her hands in...

    2002 R9 additional dealer(s) ?

    Have I missed something or has there been some kind of change in the dealers handling '02 R9s? If you go the the 59 site off of gibsoncustom.com and check that dealer "thing" in the upper left area, in addition to the four dealers I knew about they are now also showing Sam Ash of NYC, actually...

    Burst Gang book, Japanese language?

    Is there anyone out there who has a copy of the "Burst Gang" book AND has access to Japanese linguistics skills? Or for starters how about someone who has a copy of that book and can scan to a graphic file the page number 111, where it appears to make a reference to a left handed burst possibly...

    Another sadly misinformed...

    Here's yet another out-to-lunch ebayer who thinks he has something wild. Just where do these poor souls come from??? The guy is offering what is just a regular honey burst LP Standard from 1998, mind you left handed is a bit on the rare side in this finish, but no big deal. For example Centre...
