I'm getting one of these for Christmas. It's Boss's answer to the Space Echo (they seriously have everything in common, the layout just looks different).

Also, that Fender Lead is beautiful and I want to marry it. I also want to get that P-90 bearing 22-fret semi-hollow that they've got. It's like $600 and is the perfect answer to the SG. Too bad nobody even notices them, so they'll probably get discontinued.

I have a giga delay, its good fun.

But i would have to say, boss's answer to the space echo would be this one.

I play a Danelectro U2 1956 reissue. It's kind of a salmony color, so it's like playing a dreamsicle. It was a great buy- I bought it used for $200 about 4 years ago and it hasn't needed any repairs. Really nice, rich, vintage tones. I've been playing it through a Fender Bassman tube amp lately.

Hopefully I will soon have enough money saved for a Dano U1 re-issue in PURPLE.  It is at my favorite used guitar place and I want it.  I hope to play it through a Fender Champion 600.

How's the Bassman? I've been running down my list of possible new amps, and the reissue is there (also a Fender Hot Rod Deville 2x12, Vox AC30CC, and an Orange Tiny Terror + 2x12). Any decent distortion on its own, or would I be better off with pedals?

My friend (and frequent jam-cohort) leaves his vintage Bassman head and Fender cab in my basement.  I can't speak for the re-issue, but going off of my experiences with his Bassman you're gonna need a nice distortion pedal.  It gets really great clean tone though.

Yeah, most Fender amps have a pretty boring distortion.  Well, the solid state ones anyways.  I haven't played enough of the tube ones to really judge them.

The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and DeVille both have great overdriven tones. More than enough for punk or classic rock. As previously stated, though, Fender amps sans pedals suck for metal.

but those amps also have a tendency to vibrate themself into failure if you play them loud very often.

and by loud i mean anything above conversation level.  ;)

Sadly, I'd think so. Fender axed production on the Cyclones and Toronados for this year.

I have a Jackson Pro DK2M Dinky. I got it second hand and it sounds pretty fucking sweet, the tuning process is a bitch though. I also have a cheapish classical guitar.

I want to get a bass, preferrably a five string. I've been looking at some cheaper ones, like an ESP B-55 or a five stringer from OLP that I had a play around on at the music store.

I need my own amp, I've just been using my mate's for ages and it's a pretty shitty amp, but it's decent for the price he got it. I was thinking of just getting one of those orange cube ones, I think they're just called Micro Cubes or something, anyone know much about them? They're made by Roland, I'm unsure about their quality.

Righto. The Micro-Cube is made by Roland. I think Orange's is called the "Micro Crush"?

I dunno. I've heard a lot of good things about the Rolands, though.

See guys, THIS was the answer I was looking for. o/

\o

When Tommy was here, we went to see a couple of punk bands play. One guy was using a Tele through what I think was an Orange Rockerverb combo, or maybe a Rocker 30. He sounded great (untill his amp blew out the portable generator they were using to power a show in the park).

I also want to get that P-90 bearing 22-fret semi-hollow that they've got. It's like $600 and is the perfect answer to the SG. Too bad nobody even notices them, so they'll probably get discontinued.

If you mean the Thinline Tele (it's semi-hollow with P-90s), it's actually pretty popular. I know at least 4 people who have one just in my circle of acquaintances.

but those amps also have a tendency to vibrate themself into failure if you play them loud very often.

and by loud i mean anything above conversation level.  ;)

First time I've ever heard this complaint, and I've been reading up on them lately. Explain please?

I was thinking of just getting one of those orange cube ones, I think they're just called Micro Cubes or something, anyone know much about them? They're made by Roland, I'm unsure about their quality.

They're small and they're solid-state, but on a budget they're fucking great. I don't know anyone who bought one and was unhappy with it.

Hehe, yeah, I was just describing the colour, I would have had a capital O otherwise. Thanks though.

Cool, coz I need to look into a second job before getting one bigger really. Thanks, that helps.

I'm looking into buying a whole new setup. Right now, I'm pretty set on getting a Fender '62 Jazzmaster, a Peavy Windsor Half-stack, and some effect pedals (probably a Voodoo Labs Superfuzz and a Boss Digital Delay pedal, possibly a reverb pedal if the amp doesn't have a built-in reverb effect).

What do you guys think?

I was under the impression he was talking about the TC-90. Patrick, y/n?

Now that you can get Danos with proper bridges, they're pretty tempting. The guy in the Poster Children gets an INSANE guitar tone with a Dano, a HiWatt, and a Boss OD-2.

And as far as Ibanez guitars go, I cannot say enough good things about even a cheaper Ibanez with a couple Seymour Duncan pickups in it. I put a JB in an old RG I had back in college and the damn thing sounded as good as my McCarty.

I have owned probably 12-15 different guitars at various points in my life. Right now I've got four guitars (two PRS, one ESP, one Gibson) and a bass (shit-ass-old Spector import).

They are basically what I used to spend all my money on.

So many awesome guitars, I'm in shock :P



This is mine, a Fender Highway 1 (I know... not much cashflow going through here) made in USA, with Custom Shop '69 pickups, and the black pickguard, gibson SG buttons you see.

I like it a lot, in retrospective, maybe I should have got a RW neck, but I really liked it.

Soon, I'll be able to afford my dream gear. Fender Twin Reverb, and a Gibson ES-335. :)

ZOMG HAY GUISE I GOTS A SQIUER STRAT OLOL

Seriously though it was my first guitar and I still like it for some strange reason.

The two even semi-good guitars I've got are a Takamine G334 (discontinued, I feel special) and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard.

the Takamine is purely acoustic, so once I get the funds I'm looking into a Seagull acoustic/electric.  After that though, I'm thinking a PRS would be a solid investment.  My guitar reacher got sponsored by PRS last year, so he may/may not be getting a signature model sometime soon-ish.  If he does I swear I might get one free, or at least reeeeeally cheap.

Hah, yes. My first electric was a Squier Bullet. I'm planning on rebuilding it eventually. The body's all beat to shit and currently covered almost 100% with duct tape. I need to get a new bridge, pickguard, tuners, and a humbucker.

Speaking of PRS, I'm kinda really liking their new "Mira". Hmmmn.

I could go on forever and ever on how much I love Squier. I have a Squier Bullet (the now-discontinued hardtail-only one) and it still is one of my absolute favourite guitars. Maybe it's just the fact that I'm playing her through a Marshall (Fender/Squier and Marshall go together like football players and cheerleaders) but I absolutely adore the sounds I get out of her.

My new plan of attack:

I was looking at old Danelectros and Silvertones (both Dano and Kaye-made) on eBay before my last class, and some of them are on the very damn inexpensive side. I may hoard any money I get for the holidays and buy one of these.

Seriously. Goddamn.

So, I've been wondering.

I play mostly funk, mellow chords, with clean sound, and a hint of reverb.

I was on a budget, and I needed some stuff fast, so I bought a Crate Stack amp (can't remember the reference) and a Boss GT-8 pedal (I know, what the fuck was I thinking).

Right about now, I'm fed up with that crap, and I -know- I'm not taking advantage of my Custom shop PU's. Also, I don't use 1/20th of the stuff the GT-8 has.

So, what amps, effect pedals do you recommend?

I was thinking a Fender Twin Reverb, and a Boss Delay pedal, and perhaps a Ibanez Tube Screamer for the distortion here and there (and of course a Boss Chromatic Tuner).

Down the road, I wanted to get a hollowbody guitar, so I was thinking on acquiring a Gibson ES-335, preferrably vintage, if I can afford it.


Whatcha guys think?

So, what amps, effect pedals do you recommend?

I was thinking a Fender Twin Reverb, and a Boss Delay pedal, and perhaps a Ibanez Tube Screamer for the distortion here and there (and of course a Boss Chromatic Tuner).

Down the road, I wanted to get a hollowbody guitar, so I was thinking on acquiring a Gibson ES-335, preferrably vintage, if I can afford it.


Whatcha guys think?

I say Fender are probably a good idea, possibly Orange amps as well. Aside from that all I can do is say go and play some damn amps.

A truly vintage 335 costs more than a decent car, these days.

My friend managed to pick up an older Epiphone ES-335 for about $250.  It's fairly beat to shit but we love it because it has a gorgeous bigsby.

I think they're worth more than cars.  The only thing guitars expel into the environment is love.

Pff, not only love, you hippie. Guitars expel an unhealthy, potentially-damaging amount of ROKK.

*shrug* I guess I find acoustic guitars boring. They pretty much all look the same and have a big hole in the middle.

Now that you can get Danos with proper bridges, they're pretty tempting. The guy in the Poster Children gets an INSANE guitar tone with a Dano, a HiWatt, and a Boss OD-2.

My new plan of attack:

I was looking at old Danelectros and Silvertones (both Dano and Kaye-made) on eBay before my last class, and some of them are on the very damn inexpensive side. I may hoard any money I get for the holidays and buy one of these.

Seriously. Goddamn.

If you're looking for Danos - try these guys http://www.fatdawg.com

When Dano shut down in the 80's Fat Dog bought 1000's of necks and bodies, and now he sells the guitars fully put together with vintage parts and upgraded bridges for almost nothing.  They also do lots of custom Dano work with upgraded pickups, bodies, etc.  

For Fender guys, he did the same thing with the Fullerton Fender plant when it shut down, so you can get a fully assembled Fender strat with all vintage parts for about $300 made from Fender themselves.  All it lacks is the lable.  Beats a Squier, huh?
