    Certainly is some impressive manscaping for it's day. 😄

    My Vox is finally here!

    I have two of the older Pathfinder 15r amps. Really nice tremolo and real spring reverb. Nice warm cleans, highly recommended. I use them at home in a low volume stereo setup. Love 'em.

    Banjo joke

    P.S. the joke above I would normally tell as a piano accordion (substitute instrument of choice 😄) but really, after coming to this thread, I thought we needed a banjo joke. 🙄

    Banjo joke

    Reminds me of that old chestnut... What's the difference between a banjo and a trampoline? You take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline.

    Let the Battle Begin: Best BBQ sauce

    I've made so much BBQ sauce in my life I'd be happy to never make it again. Used to work in a restaurant and would make 15 litre batches every couple of days. Not so secret ingredients were molasses and Wright's Liquid Smoke. I say Wright's particularly as it doesn't have unnecessary additives...

    Is two better than one?

    If you look at recent electromatic threads you'll see one about it. A lousy pic and covered in stickers but it's there. It was pointed out that it is probably a walnut 5120 with a pickup swap, as it looks like there's some kind of shim under the pickups.

    Is two better than one?

    A G2622 in Walnut Stain is the only guitar I've ever bought brand new. I agree there's something about the feel of it, a very easy playing guitar. It came with a PLEK and full setup to my specifications, so that obviously makes a big difference, but it has this something, it's very comfortable...

    Gretsch G512x w- DeArmonds in Walnut Stain?

    Yeah now that you mention it I think I do see some kind of shim. I'd say you're probably right, a walnut 5120 with added DeArmonds. Cheers! 🍻

    Gretsch G512x w- DeArmonds in Walnut Stain?

    Yeah kinda thought of that but who would paint the baby blue and black brown? 😵‍💫

    Gretsch G512x w- DeArmonds in Walnut Stain?

    This has been bugging me. For sale around here is what appears to be one of the 512x line with the DeArmond pickups but it's in what looks like Walnut Stain. I've never heard of one of these in walnut, the seller has called it a 5127 but google tells me a 5127 should be baby blue. You'll need to...

    Calling all Aussies

    Hey folks, just noticed a good deal on a used black 6128t out here in Oz. It's a Players Edition from 2018 with what looks like HS Filtertrons with the hardcase and all the paperwork selling for $2000AUD. Probably would have snapped it up myself but just bought the Anni last week with...

    Ngd 6128 ds

    Yeah this is very likely. I would haggle a bit and ask for more of a discount, maybe 300 off. Whoever they try to sell that guitar to as a new one will most likely be as unhappy as you are, so they won't be able to sell it at a brand new price.
  17. SneakyPete

    Is two better than one?

    Yep agree for the price one of the 512x line would be a good choice. They're like a 5420 but with DeArmond single coil pickups. I think it goes something like... 5124 - white 5125 - black 5126 - silver sparkle 5127 - sky blue 5128 - gold sparkle 5129 - red One thing I haven't been able to...
