The weight would worry me a bit too, but those kit builds probably don't use the same wood for the bodies as branded guitars. I doubt that it would be the same sort of mahogany as a Gibson or an Epi. ...

That looks pretty darned nice. I never was a fan of slidy switches anyway.

What colour is that though? Some sort of shell pink?

That looks fantastic.

I'd fall on the side of the 500k camp - if the tone control is too bright with a 500, you can always roll it off a bit. That would probably be more versatile in the long run w ...

Much to my surprise, it ain't bad. I recall an old thread where Mike explained how elegant and clever the circuit is, and the end result is pretty usable. Neither of the ...

Interesting indeed. The values of the caps and resistors they were using back then were so variable that the "Triangle sound" in this case could be any one of several batches, so I wonder wh ...

If you're buying the trem as one unit where all the parts are supplied in the bag/box, it doesn't make a lot of difference really. The issue for a newcomer is whether you want the hassle of setting up ...

I'll probably pick up an SD-1 when I see one second-hand, out of curiosity's sake more than anything else. That's how I ended up with a DS-1 which, while it's not a permanent fixture on my board, can ...

I quite like mine, but don't use it as often as I thought I would. There are three issues I have with it: the string vibration and resulting volume is higher than what you get from picking normally, i ...

I've never been a big fan of amp distortion, so get most of my dirt from pedals. Multi-channel amps always seem like too much of a compromise: one channel might work well for me while the other doesn' ...

The blue reminds me a bit of the Pelham Blue that Gibson do occasionally.

I still prefer the CAR, although the seafoam green is kinda nice.

I'm not familiar with Fender's twitter account, but reading it again: it sounds as much like "to mark our product's 60th anniversary year, here's an example of someone famous using it" as it ...

Nowt wrong with the Horrors...I quite enjoy what little of their stuff I've heard.

Admittedly, JMs aren't very popular guitars but Shields has done as much for promoting them as anyone, so I'm not ...

Aye, that clip sounds like the CE-3 sound that I remember too. If you want a subtle sound where it doesn't sound like a pedal at all, you don't need to crank the depth knob too high.

I used to own one (it was the first pedal I ever bought), but sold it quite a while ago. From what I remember:

In one of the modes the dry and effected signal are split between the two outputs. I * ...

I'm not sure who the target market is specifically, because aesthetically it looks like Spinal Tap chose the colour scheme while sounds-wise it's not a metalhead's guitar at all. As an instrument I'd ...

The CAR Jag is hawt as all fook. Nice to see Fender Japan stuff available again without having to use forwarding companies for the importing and Google Translate for the moon runes.
