    I'm Baaaaack!

    Not a newbie at all, but after being away for about 5 years, I think I'd better knock on the front door instead of just strolling into the rehearsal hall. Before I dropped out of sight I was unemployed, depressed, nearly bankrupt, and generally unfit company. Since then, I've moved a few times...

    Fender Pro Junior modifications

    I usually document what I do to my amps, and for this particular project I decided to do a full work-up so I could share with you guys. I bought this Fender Pro Junior from a fellow G-T member a while ago. They were very unhappy with the sound, and despaired of ever getting it right. The amp...

    Need clear schematics ASAP! Vox & Ampeg

    A couple of buddies just dragged their amps into my shop for some troubleshooting, and I don't have schematics for them. One is an Ampeg SVT Classic head. Ironic, that I have schematics and manuals for the old SVT, but not this new one. And no, they are not the same. The other is a Vox...

    Shot first. Asking questions now.

    Way too late to ask, (already pulled the trigger), but will this >G6120 Case< fit my 2005 G5125?

    Gretsch #4!!!

    My name is Dave, and I'm a Gretschaholic. I like it that way. :D After negotiating shipping with Rocky, I bought this >unfinished G7176 Southern Belle< from Streetsounds: According to >this write-up< on the Gretsch Pages site, there were only about 100 of these made, and the...

    G5135 Corvette - Compton upgrade

    Usually a Compton upgrade refers to replacing a stock bridge with a new CCC bridge. This is one for the record books. I just recieved a new chambered titanium Compton bridge to install on my Lil' Red Corvette. I'm replacing the bridge that was custom made for the original owner's taste for...

    CCC Evolution

    I just recieved a new chambered titanium Compton bridge to install on my >Lil' Red Corvette<. I'm replacing the bridge that was custom made for the original owner's taste for largish flatwound strings. It is in fact, the very first Compton Compensated Custom bridge! There have been a few...

    Bigsby B60 alignment - G5125

    OK, when I first got my used G5125, a couple of things weren't quite right. The Bigsby was offset enough to drag the bridge off to the side until I applied some rosin to the base. And the neck pickup had been flipped around. I've never been fond of the stock strap locks, either, so those...

    NGD - G5135 (Lill' Red)Corvette

    I wanted to get more familiar with this beauty before I posted about her, so this review is actaully a month late. :o After purr-forming the obligatory cat scan, Tone says OK: I haven't played flatwound strings in a long time, so I was looking forward to this new arrival. After...

    Help support G-T and help me support my butt!

    See that Announcement about the Gretsch bar stools? I really want a pair of the 24" stools, but Paul can't ship out of the US. I'd like to PayPal G-T for the stools, get them shipped to a G-T member who lives near Alberta, and get them packaged a bit better for shipment here to me. I...

    NGD - G5125 review

    Well, first the good news: I abandoned my search for a G5129 (couldn't find one) and instead worked out a deal on a G5125 being sold by a fellow G-T member. And I think it's a keeper: The tone is lovely. My first impression is that these DeArmond 2000 pickups are very, very, good indeed...

    I still prowl eBay, looking for a Roc Jet like the one I just missed getting back in '75. >This one< is not quite the same, but I gotta ask: What kind of pickups are those? :confused:

    How bad can this be?

    This eBay listing (Item #250605192390) for a 1999 G1627 blue sparkle Synchromatic Jet caught my eye as a potential project guitar. I'd really like some input from the more knowledgeable types here before I make any decisions. Sorry, I can't get a hot link for the eBay listing to work; try...

    'splain me dis??

    I really liked this >eBay listing< until I saw the back. WTF? Why, after lavishing the kind of effort in design and production that results in such a beautiful, toneful guitar, would anyone nail a big, fugly barstool cover on the back? It came from the factory like this, didn't it? I don't...

    2004 G6120 Nashville Burst Blue?

    The special run of baby blue guitars didn't appeal to me, but this >2004 Blue Burst 6120< catches my eye. But with a starting bid of $2500 and a BIN 0f $3000, I don't think he's going to draw much interest. Or is it just me that can't afford it right now? What say the G-T cognoscenti?

    Deep in the mists of time....

    I didn't want to hijack Darrin's thread. He's closing in on an old Gretsch that has been hauting his dreams for years. That story needs to be told without a lot of distractions. But part of Sarah's post stirred up some ghosts for me.... See, now this is one of the reasons I enjoy this...
