Accessories For Orchestral Strings. The Mine-ETune system calls up any one of 12 factory or 6 user presets at a simple strum of the strings. It removed all the hiss from my signal chain when I tried it with guitar and bass and adjusted it to each instrument.
Pickups are P90's which I think are an excellent compromise between humbuckers and single coils. They're single coils but are hotter than most and fatter sounding as well. Other than that, no fret wear at all has seen very little actual playing time and a superb low setup.
It also features a Triad output transformer, which is original spec for Fender's classic tweed amps including the low-powered Twin, Super, and Pro, which is part of the magic of this fine amp. Channel 1 is the perfect clean with crisp highs, fat lows, and a very throaty voice overall.
Channel 2 is the OD channel with excellent sustain with a beautiful break-up. CH-2 reaches full volume at around 9'oclock and from there on it's more of a gain knob, with more overdrive, sustain, and compression as you turn it up.
The tone knobs are very interactive with the volume controls and really act like gain controls as much as EQ knobs. Turn up the bass or treble and you'll notice an increase in gain at the same time. The tonal possibilities aren't as simple as the layout appears but there really isn't a bad sound on this amp, regardless of settings. Rather than the vintage style separate inputs for the two channels, the Galaxie uses a footswitch to change channels, which is a nice touch for live bands, with an indicator light to let you know when you're on CH This features wasn't really to offer an appreciable difference in output rather than different voicings.

There are a number of good demo's on YouTube including this one by Frankie Starr, playing what appears to be an earlier version with a different layout. Beautiful Blonde Legacy, barely played. Throughout his time there, and even after his departure, the quality has remained top-notch, even as Fender faltered at times.
I have always thought that they're better than comparable Fender models. Specifically, old-factory models when they were actually handmade, easily identifiable with the original small logo and mother of pearl inlays along with more substantial differences. A lot of people incorrectly refer to these as "pre-factory" which would indicate that Paul built over 30, guitars in his garage, ignoring the Annapolis factory which was used '85 to ' These guitars are widely thought to be superior to guitars built at the new Stephenville factory opened in '96, where PRS eliminated most of the hand-crafting in favor of CNC machines and went to cheaper fretboard inlays and tuners.
As shown in the bridge pickup cavity, this one is finished in Whale Blue, but as is typical of all old PRS finishes, it has faded somewhat. Features of this guitar include Dragon Bass and Treble pickups with white paper stickers, 5-way rotary selector, master volume, master tone, wide-fat neck taper, mahogany neck, Indian rosewood fretboard with genuine mother of pearl bird inlays, mahogany body with a "10" maple cap indicated by "10" impressed in back of headstock.

Although 20 years old this one's in lovely shape and judging by the near-perfect frets, it hasn't seen a lot of playing time.
Whenever you play one of these older PRS's you can almost sense the meticulous human attention to detail as you're holding a guitar that will likely never be hand-crafted again.
Prices on Annapolis-era Customs continue to rise but they're still a good value, especially when you can get a nice one cheaper than a new one.
These have proven to be excellent investment pieces for the collector - but for the player, it's cheaper than a new one AND a better guitar. Takamine EFSC , front , back , headstock , preamp , case. Haven't had one of these in 10 years. All of the ones I had in the past were older models with either the AccurAcoustic preamp or later GraphX preamp but this CT-4B-II blows them away as far as warmth and overall sound reproduction.
The CT4B II preamp system, matched with the unique Palathetic under-saddle pickup, includes controls for three-band EQ, volume and built-in chromatic tuner.

The Strat Plus made its debut in and had a very successful year run, ending in '99, which was the last year of the American Standard series. When released in '87 the Plus was essentially a deluxe model American Standard, with upgraded pickups and hardware. It featured a trio of the new Lace Sensor pickups, which provided a vintage tone without the annoying noise associated with standard Strat pickups.
The Gold Laces 50's Strat sound on this model are the same pickups used on the Clapton and Buddy Guy signature models and both player toured with their stock pickups for many years.
The Plus also features Sperzel locking tuners as well as a Wilkinson roller nut, both enhancements to keep the guitar in tune, especially for players who use the tremolo to great measure. This is an excellent playing guitar and it reminded me of how much I like the original Lace Sensors.
Other controls are the normal 5-way with volume, tone, and TBX. Prices on these early silver-logo American Strats have been on a consistent upswing for the past 5 years and they're just on the cusp vintage.

A very simple design, it features a 12AX7 preamp tube, and an ECC83 power tube, with just gain, bass, treble and volume.

These are fairly rare and they seem to have been sleepers which I would probably attribute to their competition with the Wolfgang, which was produced during the same era.
The Firenza, which came in several configurations, is similar to the Wolfgang in appearance and, in fact, was made in the same USA factory. They are sometimes referred to "Leakesville Firenzas", made in Peavey's Leakesville factory from and , roughly the same timeframe as the Wolfgang which was also produced there. With a variety of models JX - HSS configuration and string-thru body; Soapbar - P90 pickups, mahogany body, tuneomatic bridge, and the top of the line AX - dual humbuckers with fulcrum tremolo and ash body they were mid-priced guitars and excellent values for USA models.
There was also an entry level "Impact-Firenza" which was a lower priced model. This guitar has a fantastic low set-up and excellent tone via a quality set of humbuckers that look and sound very much like a Wolfgang. The Red Flake finish, which I think is somewhat rare, is a thing of beauty; these pics do not do it justice.
This guitar is in beautiful shape other than missing the back plate. For tone, playability, and quality components, it's one of the best values I've seen in an American guitar.

Jet City PicoValve Head , panel , back , side.

Power amp tubes options include: Preamp tube choices include various 9-pin tubes: The first preamp tube governs the gain and tone of the preamp, while the second preamp tube directly drives the power tube, so mess around with these and you'll find it changes both the tone and "feel" of the amp.
If you go to YouTube you can click on any number of demo's plus a good 2-part interview with Andy Marshall, discussing these amps at length. One of his topics is something I've been pushing for many years: How many times has your soundman told you, "I don't have any control over the guitar sound, because it's already as loud as the front of house sound. The FOH sound should come from a well-mic'd cabinet, giving your sound tech full control over your band's sound.

There are lots of Klon Centaur clones out there but this is likely the best, especially when you consider J Rockett was the chosen builder of the Klon reissue, the KTR.

Nice shape and nice price. Upgraded with a genuine EVH Frankenstein pickup — or stock pickup — your choice.

Excellent compact USB audio interface featuring one award-winning Focusrite mic preamp, one instrument input and precision digital converters.

This one's finished in Blackstone, which is black finish with fine gold lines or white lines depending on how the painter felt the day he finished it , emulating the look of granite.

Finished in classic Alpine White, this G has the look of the early 60's SG and with these upgrades you have a guitar that sounds as good as it looks.
This guitar was originally a Ltd Ed model with EMG's, thus it already had a battery compartment, so when we added the EMG mid boost, which requires a 9V battery, no modification to the body was necessary. The SPC is a killer unit that adds a lot of versatility. It fattens up the mids which can make your tone less muddy. It can also be used as a clean boost - just turn up the knob when you want some extra output, for leads etc.
It provides sufficient gain to drive a tube amp into clipping while adding more harmonic content. The SPC is wired for both pickups; likewise the Tone control. Features include solid mahogany body with set-in mahogany neck, Grover tuners, slim-taper neck has a rosewood fretboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays, with a deep double-cutaway allowing easy access to the upper frets.

Other features include a one-piece maple neck with a "modern C" profile, compound-radius 9.
Electronics include dual N3 Noiseless single-coil Telecaster pickups with three-way switching, and S-1 switch for series wiring in middle pickup position. Fender discontinued this in favor of the Elite Thinline, which I also have in stock, but if you favor the traditional Tele bridge pickup assembly, this is the one. With the compound radius it plays with ease and no vintage radius string buzz.
Includes deluxe case, hang tags, manual, strap with strap locks, polishing cloth, and cable. In these were pretty exclusive and featured a Brazilian fretboard and headstock veneer, thus the "Custom built for USA only" since shipping Brazilian to other countries is difficult or impossible.
In addition to the Brazilian, these original models featured Artist grade tops and if this one is typical, only the finest Artist tops, as well as Artist paisley cases. This guitar came about when Paul decided to recreate his own Private Stock axe. In the Modern Eagle tradition, Paul specified every aspect of this guitar from tonewoods, inlays, pickups, and neck profile to the innovative stoptail bridge design and proprietary finish.

Interior is platinum plush providing total neck support and protection on all sides of the guitar. Features end handle for 2-man carry or pulling out of a van as well as wheels for easy transport. I would have called it a Custom 22S or something.
I like the blade so much more than the rotary. A few clear coat indents or scratches but nothing through to the wood. It plays easily with low action and with the Fralin pickup it has a sweeter selection of single coil tones. Would be very at home in a modern country band or, of course, rock or blues. Not a 10 top but on another day I think it could have made the grade. Fender American Deluxe Pickup Assembly. Mounted on original Fender mint green pickguard. Quick and easy upgrade for your Strat.
Super clean - modern take on the old Stingray 1, first released in along with the Stingray Bass. By it was gone from the catalog.

It features an extra octave of bass coverage, giving a natural sound to your guitar. This Fulltone Guitar Pedal makes you comfortable on your pedal board, and its large Volume and Drive knobs provide easy adjustment onstage. A quality boost pedal at a bargain price.

Russian made, built like a tank and clean shape other than Velcro on the bottom. Active control means it will work well with other effects and in effects loops. Another ingenious unit from the geniuses at EH. Not a suppressor, not a noise gate. If you use single coils and a bit of gain, or you use a longer signal chain through several effects you need this.

Even if you have a gate built into your unit, it's not as good or transparent as this unit. Dimensions are the same as a Boss pedal so it will work in existing Boss pedalboard.
A very rare bird indeed and in lovely shape. Adrian Vandenberg was with Whitesnake and was one of the top rock players during this era. He was very involved in the development of this guitar including the very distinctive body shape which is slightly arched top with "fiddle cuts" at the bass and treble waist. The body is a one piece mahogany and the guitar has the neck attached by way of a set-through construction.
Compared to the regular model, the neck profile is a bit thinner and the frets are wider. This model also came with an eastern flame maple fretboard which this guitar obviously has. The pickups are both humbucker, installed at a degree slant to run parallel to the tilted body shape which is designed to eliminate the string spacing problem when Gibson pickups are combined with Fender spaced tremolos.
Other features include angled and reverse headstock, Kahler Spyder double-locking tremolo, locking nut, 2pc maple neck with flamed maple fretboard also available in ebony , headstock and neck painted to match body, custom Vandenberg pearl fretboard inlays, 15" fretboard radius, Other than two small touch-ups on the back edge shown here , this guitar is in beautiful condition all around.
One mod has been done: We changed it to a Master volume and tone, with a push-pull on the tone to get single coil tones out of both pickups. Includes tidy original case that hugs the body all around and trem arm. Upgraded with a set of Lindy Fralin "Big Singles". Quality Custom Shop piece for the player looking for the Dot look, tone, and feel, in a guitar that's smaller and lighter. Gibson designed the as a scaled down ES, altering the lines slightly so it doesn't look like a shrunken Dot and from the audience view it pretty much looks like a full size Dot.
The fact is, however, the body size is very close to the size of a Les Paul, both in width and depth, but yet it retains the tone of a Dot. These pickups are powerful, not unlike a P90, with more beef than most singles and cleaner and more articulate.
Fralin describes them as a cross between their P and Twangmaster. They seem fairly resistant to feedback, especially in the smaller body of a It also has vintage style feature such as tulip-head Kluson tuners, nickel hardware, ABR-1 bridge, stop tailpiece, dot fingerboard inlays, and lacquer finish, which combine to give it the appearance of a '58 Dot.
Gibson also made a few subtle improvements such as the output jack, now mounted on the side of the guitar instead of on the top, keeping the cable out of the way. The smoothly polished frets allow for fast and accurate play, with less effort.
This guitar has a wonderful setup and plays as nicely as any I've had, but it's much more comfortable. These were hard to find on the open market 9 years ago, marketed only through a small network of around 7 stores and online retailers. Includes custom shop certificate and custom shop case. Probably the longest model name of any PRS I've ever had and definitely one of the nicest looking, other than a few cosmetic flaws.
PRS sourced some of this "killer quilt" in and did a limited run of of these US, 80 overseas. Finished in "Black Slate", it is some of the nicest bookmatched quilt I've ever seen. The quilted maple caps off a korina body, rather than the usual mahogany, and it has the Artist treatment with bird inlays, gold hardware, rosewood headstock overlay, inlaid shell logo, and Artist case.
Cosmetically, the top is quite clean but there is some buckle wear on the back and two small dings on the headstock front edge shown here and here , as well as light gold wear.
You can have one of the fanciest Custom 24's ever made, for the price of a stock model with no options. Oh, it's a nice light weight for a Custom at just under 7 lbs 12 oz.
Models in custom colors, especially any of the pastel colors, are few and far between and are highly sought after. The only noteworthy flaws are two finish flakes next to the neckplate pic and a little finish touch up next to the strap pin pic.
Neck, body, and pots date it to and all solder joints are original. This is a clean, original V The V57's have a great feeling one-piece V-neck and the cool thing about these guitars is with the thin nitro finish, you'll get honest relic wear on the fretboard as time passes, unlike the thick poly finishes which never wear through.
Many players believe that these first generation cloth wire pickups have the best vintage tones that Fender has produced during the modern era. We can ship with your choice of the 3-way switch, or the later 5-way, with the other switch included. Other features include vintage 7. This model is very hard to find in any of the pastel colors, Daphne Blue certainly included. Includes clean, original tweed case and trem arm. Did I mention that it's 7. Nice light weight for an alder body Strat.
Fantastic Artist in immaculate condition, built with all solid white Korina Limba , top, body, and neck, with gloss finish.
Hamer made their name building classic Gibson styles They soon started incorporating some unique characteristics such as their Artist model with semi-hollow design and single F-hole. Hamer guitars are among the best American guitars in their price range. Their woods are properly seasoned, so all the shrinkage occurs before the guitar is built. If you've never tried a Hamer, I highly recommend you give one a try.
In conclusion, if you want play the new styles of metal with all the gain and start-stop, buy the isp decimater g-string or pro rack g. See all my reviews. Ask me a question. Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend. Was this review helpful? This pedal does what you need folks. I use a ton of gain and this thing just keeps everything nice and tight. This will take a bit for me to explain, but this will be VERY helpful.
Set the Threshold to 3'o clock and use the volume knob on your guitar to control the amount of gain you want and you're set. Just turn the pedal on and leave it alone!
