    Force 10 From Navarone

    Not to bad, but I think I'll look up the original, The Guns of Navarone. I really like these old ones. There are so many military movies out today it makes it hard to pick a good one. Nothing like a great old fashioned war movie on my day off. ...:salude

    Great set today. All the right stuff. My amp dialed in and cranked...thank you very much Mr. Smith. Sound guys did a magnificent job and everyone on the same page. I was really able to stretch out and just go for it on a few of the songs we played. Cutting to the chase...I was surprised and...

    Reinhardt Vintage Fifty

    Just a quick post to express my appreciation of what a great amp he used to build. At times I think of selling it as I don't play this one that much these days, but when it gets out..I'm still over joyed with the tone it brings to the table. :jim Anybody else have any of Bobs amps? :jim...

    Flippy Floppy pup...aack!

    So the neck pup on my r8 keeps coming loose. I set it to height and after playing it for a while it starts to sink. I took it out and checked the threads and where the screw goes through the foot. The only thing I can figure is the surround is suspect. It looks like where the screw goes through...

    Compression Question

    A good friend of mine just gave me a couple of his pedels he wasn't using that much. An old Boss CS-1 compression sustainer and a Menatone Howie.."sweet". Anyway, for those of you that dig a little compression, where the heck does it sit in the chain of effects?

    It was bound to happen

    Although it took about two years. My 58 received her first beauty mark today. Bumped the backside just behind the jack plate and left a little reminder to be more carefull. Pretty steamed at first :jaw but got over it fairly quickly. I guess it was bound to happen. And if you ask me, two...

    I'm seeing red??

    Whats the deal with the red along the side of the neck binding? Or am I the only one with a 58 that looks like they forgot to tape it off? I seem to remember reading somewhere this was normal. Beats me as how it could be. Got into a debate as to why or what causes this.
