    Stacktone Vintage Instruments

    Any opinions on these folks? I would recommend caution, Caveat Emptor, Buyer Beware. For a couple months I had noticed an interesting listing at a high price, cool piece though. See it again, price comes down. See it once more a couple hundred less. A few hours later, I email an inquiry...

    1994 Fender Stratocaster 40th Anniversary

    Does anybody have one? I'd like to know the general consensus. Is it a Poly or Nitro finish, there seems to be articles that say both. Go figure? And what about the neck size? Is it any larger than the '57 reissue size? any opinions on the pickups, Why were there beveled pole pieces in this...

    Speaker ?'s

    I'M considering a 2x12 option for a 100w Super Lead. I have used EVM's in the past with a good result - just a lot of weight. What are the opinions on the celestion range, and what else should I be considering in todays market? Thanks,

    Miami Pop

    This is probably not the right place for this thread but, I was watching the Hendrix footage and noticed an early small box next to his regular super lead. The interesting thing is the whole face plate was backwards - 4 inputs on the left. I don't recall ever seeing one like it. Check it...
