    The only thing I'd change is the location of the output jack, which is on the pickguard. It is too far away from the edge of the guitar and you have to use a right angle plug to keep it from sticking out. It just rocks. And it looks really cool....(more)

  2. Guild JF4 ·
    Which ones didn't I look at? Anything in the $400 to $600 range, Another used Guild (dreadnaught), Peavey, Yamaha, Fender, Alvarez. This was just THE BEST guitar regardless of price, but the price was great considering it came with a hardshell c...(more)

  3. Hoffman Amps ·
    Great site, the guy seems really knowledgable and down to earth. He sells just about anything you need for tube amp mods, upkeep and repair.

  4. Alive by Oingo Boingo ·
    This is my favorite recording by the Boingo boys. If ever you had an interest in finding out about this band, this is the album to listen to. Awesome guitar and percussion on this album. Bass player is great too. Song-oriented album, but the pie...(more)

  5. Flat Earth by Thomas Dolby ·
    It is more refined than his previous material and seems to stretch out a bit more vocally. It could have been better in that it is a short album, only about 8 tunes or so. Production and sound mix is great, especially on "I Scare Myself". There ...(more)

  8. Alive by Kiss ·
    Every tune is memorable and every tune has a hook. The guitar playing is blistering Les Paul-cord-amp blues at its best. Ace is da man, no whammy bar needed here. The SOUND of the guitars is amazing to me considering the time frame. Thick Gibson...(more)

  9. Thunder And Fire by Jason & the Scorchers ·
    The Middle linebacker of guitar players (Warner Hodges) is featured on this album where country and rock finally shake hands. This is the band that invented the genre (Not the Georgia Satellites, they were wannabe's) Awesome guitar and excellent...(more)

  10. Carvin XV-212 ·
    I bought it because it was agreat deal, and I was already familiar with it because my band mate had one EXACTLY like it. I would definitely buy another one if it were lost or stolen. I like it because it is unique and sounds awesome! Try Carvin ...(more)
