    Oh yeah, and i meant to ask you what was involved with changing out the reverb that you had to do on your vintage amp? I was questioning my calling this amp a "vintage" amp myself, after i posted the message. justin

    I used this amp and discovered that the phase selector switch on the footpedal board was locked in the on position. In order to turn the phase off and on you had to adjust its volume on the amp main panel itself. Not really too bad of a deal, ...(more)

    I was just trying out a vintage Peavey amp of one of my friend's this weekend, and played this song. (At least what I know of it anyway.) Great song, but tricky to play. justin

    Never mind. I googled like you said, and found that fender did not start using this system until 1976. So all "S" serial numbered guitars are from the late 1970's. Justin

    I just mean that both decades start with an S. How did they differentiate between the two decades on the serial numbers. Justin

    An exercise I learned from a book I have is to first start with your index finger on any fret. Then pick the string you are on, and hammer on 2 frets higher with your ring finger. Then pick the string again, this time with your middle finger o...(more)

    Wow! I didn't expect that much info that easy. Thanx a bundle for that. Now I can't find my model number for the guitar. P.S. How would you tell the difference between a 1960's fender and a 1970's model? Justin

    I couldn't believe when I was reading the first page that Cliffs of Dover was not on somebody's list. I remember the first time I heard it, that was my ultimate goal. I would also love to know how to play "Riviera Paradise" by Stevie Ray Vaugh...(more)

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a way to find out what the model, and year of a fender guitar is? I bought a Fender guitar in 1999 and I am not sure what model year it is, or what its parts are made of. My sales receipt say...(more)
