    WTF is up with this?

    Sounds like a lyric from a 70's disco hit.

    WTF is up with this?

    "Please patiently waitting for your baby come on ." Don't ask me why, but I really do love this copy! The possibilities are nearly limitless. Rather than use a standard grammar text, when I was teaching, I'd find things like this to turn into grammar lessons. Ten of these, and I could teach grammar intricacies to a room full of high school kids, between the howling laughter and gasping for air...all of us, for days on end. Thanks, Tim!

    Direct from China Relic Chibson! Most likely the "heritage" is the "heritage cherry sunburst" color it has. Man that relic just looks PAIN ful.

    Got the amp. First impression: this is the amp I have been looking for. It's got an indigo amp jewel in it, though I think they came with green. I'm not really complaining though. Just trying to think if I want to order up a green one, or keep it indigo.

    Is it a Cheritage?!

    Depending on how it goes, I was considering putting an eminence Wizard in it, or maybe even a Mesa Black Shadow C90. Why they always choose the Vintage 30 is beyond me. Many people out there say that their amps definitely sound better with the Black Shadows.

    It's hard to tell if your being serious here or if your just trying to stir up what's left of the nest for some weekday laughs.  Either way, you can put me down as as NOT being a CLEARLY fake Chibson fan.

    I noticed that they don't show the headstock in any of the photos of this or another one they are selling. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-High-Quality-Heritage-Standard-Electric-Guitar-Tobacco-Burst-Free-Shipping/283261636714?hash=item41f3b5906a:g:QOQAAOSwzZNb7VLF:rk:4:pf:0

    Does anybody know what pot shaft length is specified for a 1992 H-150? Short or Long?
  18. Bold move going for the stiletto ace. Such a galvanizing amp as far has opinion goes. I dont mind it, I found some good sounds in it. Im not a fan of V30's and I dont think they help the stiletto. imho the stiletto is one mesa that benefits from having a bias kit fitted and if you are going to play with older tubes etc even better for fine tuning to the tubes you are using.

    I read a lot of reviews, and listened to a ton of demos of the Stiletto ACE before deciding to pick one up. Most say you need to keep the highs at 11 or lower. I've also got some old production tubes I can put in, like an RCA short plate and some other fun little things. I'm also not averse to changing out the stock speaker from the Vintage 30 it comes with. Those speakers themselves are known for being "ice pick" sometimes. Lots of people love them though. I also think my ears may just work different than other people's sometimes. The price was right though, and its in great shape with all the extra stuff.

    PAF Steel Chemistry

    What would Lindy Fralin do? hahaha

    PAF Steel Chemistry

    I see no reason why someone would treat a pickup with Freon. Freon is a halocarbon that is efficient in heat transfer cycling (refrigeration). It was non toxic, compared to previous liquids (ammonia, methylene chloride, etc) but generally not used except in a closed loop system. If you are talking about "cryogenics", simple dry ice or liquid nitrogen would be much simpler, safer, cheaper and readily available. Drop the pickup into some dry ice ( −109 °F ) or better yet, some liquid nitrogen (-320°F).

    If you really like HRW's, you could just buy other pickups which Ren really likes like Seth Lover's or ThroBak's.
  24. I take it you missed that thread I started on "I need a crash course in Mesa amps" I started a while back? My first attempt at buying a Mesa amp went horribly wrong in that I bought a Stiletto 2x12 combo and I couldn't stand it. Ice-pickey tone from Hell. Maybe you'll have a better experience. But for me it was a learning experience of what not to do, and since then I have settled into what I believe are the best Mesa amps ever made. They are the Mark 5:25 head, the Duo Rectoverb 25 combo and the JP-2C head.

    It would be easy to test. Someone who has access to Freon should try it with a Duncan 59 to see what happens. They could make a fortune.

    Really? How did you find this out? I thought Ren would take his HRW 'secret sauce' formula with him to the grave.

    PAF Steel Chemistry

    This reminds me when one of the mods over at the trombone forum worked as a chemist, and he got access to a gas chromatograph. So of course, the whole "alloys aren't the same as they were" thing came up, so he ended up testing a bunch of samples from mouthpieces of various eras and makers. It definitely was pretty interesting. With the PAFs... there was just as much bean counting as there was engineering in what was produced. The color of the bobbins was whatever color they were making pickup rings at the time. The magnets were probably what was cheapest. The celluloid they used in the old les paul inlays was definitely a cost saving measure. Of course now people pay extra to replace their acrylic inlays with celluloid, which decays, and can explode if exposed to heat. I have no idea why people would want to go back to such inferior and volatile plastics.

    Of course.. first I need to take delivery of the current amplifier en route to me... because I'm a gear whore. Incoming is a Mesa Stiletto Ace 50 1x12 combo with cover, casters, footswitch in EX condition. The world seems really divided on whether they are Marshall Killers or crap. I'll get to make the decision myself in the next few days.
