  1. Epiphone EA-26RVT Electra ·
    Overall a great little recording amp. Not loud enough to gig with, unless it is a small club or bar. I guess you could mic it, but there are better amps to gig with than this one. If I ever lost this amp or some idiot decided to steal it, I woul...(more)

  2. Fender American Deluxe Telecaster ·
    Excellent guitar. It is the best guitar that I have ever played, which may not be as many as some people. For the price you just can not beat this guitar. It was well worth the extra couple hundred dollars to upgrade to this from a regular Ameri...(more)

  3. Fender Texas Special Strat Single Coil ·
    These are some great sounding pickups. A little pricey, but well worth it in my opinion. I would buy these again if they were ever stolen from me, but hopefully at a better price.

  4. Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus ·
    If it were lost or stolen, I would just go buy another chorus pedal, maybe the EH Small Clone or some boutique one. Decent pedal, but could be better.

  5. Boss GE-7 Equalizer ·
    Just an average pedal in my opinion. I hope this pedals gets stolen, well I will probably pull it out of my closet and dust it off and sell it on ebay.

  6. Grouse Guitars ·
    Great website, too bad this guy is in Australia. The prices are decent for vintage gear. If I ever have the money I would consider this site to buy a vintage amp or guitar.

  7. Gibson Duo Medalist ·
    Amazing vintage tube amp. I just love this amp. I am lucky enough to get this amp and a Gibson 4/10 medalist which is nearly identical to this amp just more power and larger. I use both amps for live gigs depending on the size of the venue. The ...(more)

    Just an average website that is mostly ad driven. No real information on here, just links.

  9. Virtual Guitars ·
    Such a great site. I have wasted so many hours on this site customizing my guitar. I have even dreamed up new guitar that some day I want to have custom built for me, but just don't have the money. Check it out and you will no be dissapointed.

  11. Guitar Hangar Where The Cool Guitars Hang Out. ·
    There are some sweet guitars on this website. This site doesn't just have a couple of guitars for sell, it has a lot of them. I would say that if you are in the market for a guitar or amp, I would check this site out first. Lots of pictures as w...(more)

  12. Ibanez CS-9 Stereo Chorus Pedal ·
    I have a Danelectro Cool Cat which I thought was a decent pedal until I got this one. I have not compared it to a new one, but I have heard that the originals one sounds much better. If it were lost or stolen I would try to buy another vintage o...(more)

  13. Gibson Super Medalist ·
    I bought this amp from a guy off of ebay because the price I got it at was a steal. I have seen Medalist sell for around $250 and I got this one for only $154 and that included shipping and handdling. I had never played a Super Medalist before, ...(more)

  14. Fender American Vintage 57 Stratocaster ·
    I actually bought this guitar to give to my daughter when she got older because it was made the year she was born. I was going to have it set up and then put it away in a closet for the next 10 years until she was older, but after playing it a c...(more)
