  1. Random thoughts: That is a sweet 535 Josh. Extra bling. And it is almost the color of that nice Epi Dot you had for sale at my last PSP. 2012 maybe. For that price I doubt if any frets were filed. So your high action was probably remedied by a truss rod adjustment and or a bridge height adjustment. Easy stuff to play around with if you’re so inclined. Worse comes to worse if unsuccessful bring it to the guy anyway. I do agree though that a top tech can bring out the best in any guitar. I do simple stuff but there is that extra percentage a truly skilled tech can bring out. Enjoy.
  2. Yes thanks that was interesting. He sounds like a great guy. A life well led for sure.
  3. Here's a Kenny Burrell less than $1k, local pickup in VA. https://reverb.com/item/23387922-heritage-kenny-burrell-2007-blue-jazz-archtop-guitar-amplifier
  4. Nice to hear from you!. And, coincidentally, the excellent Reverb Deluxe you made for me back in 2012 or so is one reason I'm even thinking about a "non tube" amp. It was making some funny noises, and I was swapping out V1 and V2 I assumed that one of those would cause odd noises ..only using one channel etc.. worked for a while .. eventually I found it was the pre amp tube right next to the pwr tubes. I'm probably due for a new crop of spares.
  5. After hearing about the new Fenders I did a search. A month ago there was a thread on TGP of over 100 pages..if anyone is really bored. I skimmed a few pages. It seems some love them, others say they are a one trick pony and other brand options may be as good with more versatility.
  6. Good one. I'll get out my Twin this week and give it a go, it's been a while. You jogged my memory, I had an Acoustic 4 x 12 / 200 w beast back in the early 70's. It was loud, not sure I was aware of other subtleties back then. And I had a LP SG back then as well. I've been kicking around the idea of getting an acoustic amp as I have one electric acoustic guitar that does not sound great with my tube amps. Maybe one of these new crop of amps can do double duty. Thanks, great info.
  7. Back in the day when I started out they were crap. I've been noticing rave reviews lately for the new Fender Tone Masters. The clips I have heard of others (Quilters etc) sound great. Light weight too. And...NO TUBES! The more I shop for and swap out tubes the older it all gets for me. Hanging out on the Jazz Guitar forum I see there are many converts there and not just for jazz. I have 5 or so tube amps but one day maybe...
  8. Welcome Andy. Would live to hear the story of the guitar from Marv. I was weaned on Southern Rock, it diffused up to the North East pretty well.
  9. Welcome Clump. I'm in the same boat re quitting for many years and taking up the instrument again. I'll wager we are not alone in that camp here. Wouldn't worry about it just have fun and be glad the flame is rekindled. The 535 is a great 1st Heritage. It is the fav of many members. Stick around good bunch of folks here.
  10. Welcome Scott. Lots of us are "of an age". Probably due to the popularity of guitar playing back in the 60's and 70's. Good to have another amp guy on the forum. Some of us like to tinker.
  11. Welcome Monk. Love your eclectic music interests you have listed.
  12. FWIW, I was worried about your absense as well. Didn't want to intrude. I've had some of your thoughts as well, I agree that forums in general (guitar, amp etc) can be habit forming and it is easier to visit them than put in the work on our instruments. Sounds like you have a good plan. Don't be a total stranger either.
  13. FWIW, I was worried about you as well Josh. Glad all is well. You have a point about spending too much time reading / posting about things guitar and neglecting actually playing and or learning. I've had that thought many times myself. Sometimes it is just easier to zone out in front of a computer.
