    HAUNTING MIDS!!!! OP IS LOOKING FOR HAUNTING MIDS!!! ....And CHIRP!! This could very well be a set up. All my guitars have all that stuff. Just sometimes not at the same settings on the guitar or amp. Sometimes i have to use a different plectrum or not use one at all. Historics have a "chalky" sound you cant dial out. My h150 has it but you have to dial it in. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  7. 2017 H150 vs 2005 H150

    Ive directly compared my h150 to a 57, a few 58's and a couple of 59's.(historics) My h150 had a deeper and tight bottom end. It was closest sound wise to the 57 gold top. It was smoother and more powerful at the same settings than any of th historics. At the time it had sd59 pickups, right now it has an antiquity jb in the bridge and the guitar is too much for a pickup like that. It is a heavier guitar than the historics i tried it against. My h150 has the sound and feel i gravitate to, the historics didnt. Gary Moore was a fearless and ferocious player and some off his best loved tones didnt involve a guitar amp.

  8. Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue

    Put guitars in the hands of kids, treat them with respect and instill a sense of belonging and comradeship in them and you can pretty much guarantee a future supply of expendable income coming through the door. Not only that and better than that, its pretty cool to relive your initial love of guitar watching them be overwhelmed when you let them plug a cool guitar into a cool amp and play their stuff. For me that was the best part of working in a guitar store. Striking up a conversation with a kid then grabbing the object of his or her desire off the wall and letting them hold it and play it, wide eyed, grateful, speechless. Some of those kids are now 24-28 and some still in contact. Some gig regularly, some went to the conservatory and now teach, some have put out cd's and toured. They still buy guitars and amps 13yrs later and they will for life. I cursed them made then guitar consumers player for life. Old coots already play and buy, you dont need to worry about them, they kinda take care of themselves. Some old guy pulled down an expensive guitar off the wall for them to play when they were kids and theyve been afflicted ever since. Or you can do what you want.

    Nice score! Sweet looking guitar.
  10. Why am I doing this?

    I keep looking for a double cut two humbucker solid body guitar that isnt a PRS. Ive spent lots of hours over the last few months. I get frustrated every time I look, no Ibanez, Yamaha, ESP, Hamer or anything I like the look of. I scour ebay looking for older and vintage MIJ guitars and everytime I take this trip it ends with me realising I have 3 double cut two humbucker solid body guitars. But theyre bolt ons. Which doesnt really bother me at all. They sound fat and chunky. One, a 78 Ibanez, is very much a LP sound alike even with the bolt on neck. I doubt I would gain anything by getting a set neck guitar. A week later, there I am again searching for a double cut two humbucker solid body guitar, 67 tabs open including Japanese yen to Au dollar converter tab. Its basic insanity. You can call it whatever you want, call it the pursuit of "art" or whatever higher calling you need to get you over the line. I havnt picked up the guitar in weeks, really, I had a jam but only because I had to, it was fun on a social level, musically, it was fun but I wasnt in to it. I haven't had a real interest in playing for a while but I just closed the usual 30-40 tabs looking for a guitar to buy that Im not really sure exists. Why am I doing this? Well, its a nice distraction, I guess. I dont watch TV.
  11. Step To Heritage

    No. I cant. I played a lot of LP's before I bought my H150. It felt right, so I bought it. Nothing else matters really.

  13. Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue

    I thought the Blues Deluxe was such a cool looking amp and took my ConcertII in to trade "up" to one. I was going to spoil myself and I felt pretty good about the whole idea. The store owner talked me down off the ledge! I was so impressed with his honesty and ability to communicate ideas and concepts to this dummy that I pretty much only ever shopped there for along time. Eventually I worked for him. That was a mistake, unfortunately.
  14. NGD: 2012 Millennium Standard Ultra/Pro

    Looks great! Nice score
  15. Yeah, Tully was alright, he had his moments. I still have that strat, a 93 US Standard and a parts caster with lipsticks. The lipstick is on the block along with 3 other guitars right now. Its a cool little guitar I thought I was chasing a vintage type strat, sound and appointments. Turns out I like modern strats with LSR nuts, locking tuners, two point trems and hotter noiseless pickups. Went through a lot of strats to figure that out. Ive got pictures of every single one. Its disturbing how many there were.
  16. This is what it sounds like when I use it. 250k pot. The H150 has 59's not Seth Lovers.
  17. H-555 incoming!

    Looks great, have fun with that.
  18. The 633 Drive King gets a service

    Nice work Mr Meyrick. Great sound, tasty licks.
  19. The 633 Drive King gets a service

    Thats a good review. Just curious, in your opinion is there a yt vid or clip somewhere online that does the amp the most justice?
  20. Rebuilding Relationships

    Ive been down this road. It was interesting, for me. What I thought would be a quick strip and paint, refret and rewire turned into a guitar building class and small and temporary cottage industry. Ultimately I didnt end up with the guitar, after all those years I just didnt like it all that much. A lot of effort for nothing. As I got close to completion I remembered the guitar was never ideal for me to start with. I ended up building 8necks and 9 bodies. I sold them all to fans of Steve Stevens, Glen Tipton and Andy Summers in the US and UK That funded my own project and gave me some spare cash. I learned a lot about guitars and had fun hanging around and using some cool machinery. I still have the templates and files from the scans. Ithink I have. I hope I have. If your guitar was as cool as you think it was go with a replica. If you remember its flaws maybe have a go at recreating it as you think you might like it to be.

  22. INCOMING....NAD

    Cool! Ive just been checking out the SYN2. That could work really well with my set up. The Boss MS3 could control the SYN2. I didnt need this sort of fixation right now. Looking forward to hearing your review.
  23. INCOMING....NAD

    Cool! do those modules work in the MTS heads and combo's or did I misunderstand? I thought the randall MTS series amps and modules were really good. Quite a heavy head(the 100w) from memory.
  24. Did not know that. Damn foreigners
  25. @Millennium Maestro We need some clarification. Well, me mainly, Im not getting it.
