    BOSS/ROLAND MICRO BR - any thoughts?

    I'm thinking about getting a little digital 4-track recorder, for jotting down ideas and doing some minimal recording stuff... and the BOSS MICRO BR seems perfect. It has 4 tracks of recording, bounce & master features which would allow for adding more tracks, AND it has a full blown guitar...

    Tough decision...

    Two nights ago, I got outta work really early and decided to stop into my local guitar shop to kill some time, and check out some gear for fun before heading home. Grabbed a Squier Classic Vibe 60's Strat (3-tone sunburst with tortoise shell pickguard), and plugged into the Fender Super Champ XD...

    Behringer RV600 Reverb Machine

    Howdy GT, Just ordered this pedal on Friday (04.08.11) I've been wanting one for a long time, and I found a great deal online this week. So I figured, why the heck not?! Really anxious to play with the "Shimmer" effect that it has... especially since I cannot afford an Eventide Space pedal...

    Has anyone seen these yet??

    I apologize if this has already been posted, but I literally JUST noticed it on Fender's website. Check it out: http://www.fender.com/products/pawnshop/index.php Kinda wish the mustang had the "racing stripes" on it. Pretty cool guitars! :)

    The Bitter Life Typecast

    Just wanted to post about the band "The Bitter Life Typecast" - as their main guitarist used Gretsch guitars pretty exclusively throughout their almost decade of existence... both in the studio and live. I believe his two main guitars were a Gretsch 6120 Jr. and a Tennessee Rose (w/ real F-holes...

    FINALLY, getting a Gretsch!!!

    Howdy good people. I just got the best deal I've seen in quite some time! Had ten minutes to kill at work, so I figured I would check out Guitar Center's USED website. Came across a Gretsch G5125 for only $300, so I absolutely HAD to call about it. Turns out the guitar wasn't really "used"...

    Got a new toy!

    So, over the weekend I checked a few local pawn shops for cheap guitars. Ended up grabbing this for only $63.47! After a complete setup, and a new set of strings... this thing actually plays and sounds pretty darn good :D I've been wanting an inexpensive Strat to have some fun with, and make...

    Xaviere Guitars (from GFS)

    Hello all. Out of curiosity, I emailed GFS today to ask them about future Xaviere Guitars model plans. According to John, they have an interesting model in the works for release this year. He didn't give specifics of when it would be coming out or anything about the actual guitar, but here's...

    The ultimate quest...

    As any of you who have read my previous posts would know, my goal is to one day own a "pro-line" Gretsch. My ideal guitar is the G6118T Anniversary... I'm always saying "if only I could save up enough cash to afford one" - well, I think I might take a step towards doing just that. I've been a...

    Ibanez Artcore "pseudo-Bigsby" question...

    Hello everyone. I have an Ibanez AFS75T Artcore guitar, and I was wondering if anyone knew a little something about the vibrato on it?? Here's a picture of mine... I really wanna put a Chet Atkins style arm on the vibrato, but I'm not sure if it's even possible, since the Ibanez doesn't...

    Epiphone Elitist Country Deluxe

    Not sure if there is already a thread about this guitar, but I just stumbled upon it last night. While cruising through some YouTube videos, looking for tips/help with Atkins' style finger picking, I found a nice video and noticed the guy in it was playing what looked like Chet's Gibson...

    This seems like a great deal...

    Sorry if this is already posted on the Gretsch eBay forum, I didn't see it there :) http://cgi.ebay.com/Gretsch-Electromatic-G5126-/320618451169?pt=Guitar&hash=item4aa65950e1#ht_506wt_1141 The guitar is kinda beat up, but far from unplayable. Plus, it comes with a hard-shell case. If I...

    Stratocaster Love...

    Hello, and happy Friday to all of you! Dunno why, but lately I've been listening to a TON of Stevie Ray Vaughn, and it's making me really miss my old stratocasters. 13 years ago, my Dad went all out and got me my first electric guitar... which was a Fender MIM Strat, and I played that thing...

    Finally getting a hollowbody!

    Well, the time has come. I've sold off enough equipment to get myself a hollowbody guitar. My initial quest was for a Gretsch G5128, but I couldn't afford any of the ones that I had found. Next on the list, was a Gretsch G5120. I went to a local guitar shop that sells Gretsch, and tried one...

    Brian Connelly Fans?!?

    How many of y'all are fans of Brian Connelly's guitar work?? Me personally, he's a big inspiration. His playing style, tone, and hilarious attitude towards song names keep me always looking forward to new releases. If you've never heard of him, check out Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet and his...
