Re: what color pickguard for sonic blue strat

Mint green looks great on anything. I have it on my 3TSB strat

It's very subtle but looks great

Re: Looking for a low wattage amp

Looks like a good setup. I might be tempted to ask Jet City for a "vintage" logo for the head though. It would also be cool (literally) to make a perforated metal front panel for better ventilation that allows you to see the tubes glowing through it. I've seen people take the back panel off and put...

Re: about the gretsch...

I have an Electromatic too. Just got it. I like the master volume idea but the knobs positioning takes a little getting used to. They seem to have put them wherever there is space.

Re: Some new gear i got

I actually just bought a few kits to insulate the windows in my house. It comes with really thin two sided tape. I should have left overs. Looks like it should work great.

Re: Some new gear i got

Hows the head sound compared to an Orange, and what kind of power tubes is it running? I know its designed by Soldano, I was looking at em not long ago myself. Is the effects loop any good? It's not an Orange. It's much brighter, thinner and more "Marshall-y". I'm going to put a set of JJ's in it. ...

Re: Some new gear i got

That Gretsch is awesome. I really like the look of the Jet City rig too. They look much better without the purple tolex section I've seen on some of them. One suggestion though - the cab would look even better if it had black corners to match the head. You could probably sand and paint the existing...

Re: Gain Boost on Dirty Channel? - RV50

there's not really much you're going to be able to do to the RV50's clean channel to get any kind of overdrive. at least in my opinion. It just stays too clean and doesn't really play well with OD pedals. I had more luck driving the OD channel with a pedal to get more gain. Other's opinions may vary...

That. The AC or RC Boosters as well. All Xotic pedals are really good.

Re: Some new gear i got

I think getting it pinned is a pretty easy procedure for a good luthier. I would never do it myself.

Re: Some new gear i got

That Gretsch looks sexy, congrats on the trade! Never played one but they seem awesome. I've heard very good things about Avatar cabs as well, especially for the price. Any idea how it compares to an orange or mesa 212? Syl Sylvain uses double stick tape to keep his bridge in place once you find th...
