    The Future of Vacuum Tubes

    I loves me some vacuum tube warmth. But on the subject of tube technology, I feel I should mention that I have a Vox Mini Superbeetle 25 which has Nutubes in it. They are a solid state alternative to real vacuum tubes. They were developed by Korg and Noritake Itron. And I think they sound...

    Does anybody ever use the Bigsby protective tip?

    I replace them with ones that are "ribbed for her pleasure".

    Best guitarist I've seen up close.....

    As soon as I get that tricky E minor chord down, I'll play in front of someone ... as long as they like listening to E minor.

    Used G5120 or New Streamliner G2420T

    Being the rebel, of course, I respectfully disagree with the popular opinions above. I have played Electromatics at music stores, and felt no love. I also played at G2420T, fell head over heels in love with it, and took it home. I like the BroadTrons and their darker sound option to...

    How old are we?

    Jelly Roll, I notice there's no category for us 71 year olds. Homeless and unwanted ... as usual.

    I got you beat, Brent. 1963 here. Trouble is, I haven't gotten any better since then.

    New Member... my dad gave me his SuperChet

    Great story. Great guitar. Even better dad. I suggest we follow a tradition that's very popular on this forum - you send me the guitar, for a decade or so, and I'll see what information I can find out about it. (That's if I can put it down long enough.)

    Hi from the land of 10000 lakes !

    Welcome from another G2420t owner in the Saintly City across the river. I don't know about the shafts - I'm keeping mine stock. But I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

    My son’s NGD: Eman Explorer

    Disown him, Jim! I can overlook his dream guitar being a non-Gretsch, and even his Ishtar-inspired disease of being left-handed, but a Blackhawks fan???...unforgivable!
