    welcome to gretsch-talk, Lou. make yourself at home. the last time that I was in Vegas was in 1978. I was on a motorcycle on my way to see a friend in Chico, California. nice looking guitars you've got there.

    Nice Gear!

    What is that Randall amp and what do you think of it?

    By the way, if you ever decide you want a silver pick-guard instead of that clear one, let me know! :D We'll swap!

    I'll consider that unbridled, but it has a lot of fine scratch's (pg) that actually came with it.


    That Randall's a RX75D and to my ear sounds' nice and full on the clean; but I dont dig the od channel on 'cause it's the wrong kind of gain for my style.

    Let me know. Mine still has the plastic on it.

    So, is that solid state? Is it too high gain for your likes?

    It's SS and the gain is way over the top, like Disturbed territory, too much. I like the Marshall high gain tone but not Randall's SS gain. But I got the amp at a great $. Go figure.

    ha ha yeah, I bet ! I'm 31 years older for one. is the KOA still on the outskirts of town ? that's where I parked my bike that night. :D it was pretty awesome that night when we topped the hill overlooking Vegas and saw all of those lights. my next thought was, "what have I gotten myself into on the back of this motorcycle ?" it was quite the trip. an experience of a lifetime. :cool:

    That KOA was on Boulder highway. That was on the ouskirts, but now gone. No KOA there. That area is in the middle of a metroplex area and it is developed all the way to the crest of the hill you rode over. There was about 400,000 then and now 2,000,000. It is not the Las Vegas you remember. It is more like LA without the good stuff.
    "SGT ROCK"< I like that

    wow ! I'd say it's changed. :eek:

    {"SGT ROCK"< I like that} that's a nickname that my troops gave me back in the early 70's. Sgt Rock was from a comic book character, he was a mean, no nonsense, do your job type of NCO. all that I did was expect my guys to do their job. I guess that's why they called me that. :D
