    1956 Gretsch Duo Jet

    Got this beauty a few months ago. Love the bright, but fat sound. Still has the original frets, so a good refret would be appropriate in the near future.

    Reconing new production speaker?

    Hi. Just got a speaker that got broken while shipping. It's a Tone Tubby. The cost of reconing it is 50$ here in Barcelona. I already ordered a new speaker, but it seems weird to me to throw the broken one away. I'm thinking about reconing it and having a second speaker. Does this make any...

    Robert Plant at Austin City Limits

    Just found this on YT. There's a few more clips. But this one is 'Whole lotta love' and the guitar player shows a well worn 52/53 LP. Cool as it can get. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKcTC931aqE

    Late 60s Tele pickup readings

    Hi there. I recently acquired a 1968 Tele. Bridge pu seems to be original, neck pu is not. Both read in the low 9s. Seems a lot to me. What are the usual ohm readings in late 60s Tele pickups? Thanks in advance.

    Nice documentary where you can see the making of MOJO. Well, and Mike Campbell's burst has a few nice appearances and there's other vintage gear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOJeUhUz70E In their own words: 'let's make a record around a guitar', in this case MC's burst. Enjoy!

    NGD - 1957 Les Paul TV Junior

    Hi there. A few weeks ago a refinished 57 TV Junior appeared in the classifieds. I always liked TV finished guitars, and the price was right and the timing was right (I had to travel for work to the US a week after the ad appeared). So I went for her. We made a quick deal and the seller sent...

    Best bang for the buck NEW acoustics? Under $1000

    Hi there. I have to buy 3 acoustic guitars for a new music school I'm designing. My budget is about $3000 for the 3 of them. But it would be great to stay under that. It's important that I buy new (owner's request). What would you suggest? I want to buy instruments that can work as...

    Fender Deluxe RI - CAPS

    Hi there, a few months ago I bought a used Fender Tweed Deluxe reissue. The former owner had changed the tubes and the caps. He wanted more headroom, so he changed the 12AV7 in V1 for a 12AY7 (this change is also suggested by Fender in the owner's manual) and he also changed the caps. He also...

    Hi. Does anybody know what's the idea behind the release schedule of the Collector'd Choice line? In the last 2 months 4 CC have been released: Hank, Redeye, Spoonful and Believer's. All beautiful guitars. It's seems kind of weird to me to release so many 'special' models almost all at once...
