The Guitar Pron Thread

Interdasting…. sounds like it is free right now, how ultimately it will compare to reverb from a cost perspective. Also wonder if it will end up being more person to person sales. Seems like it would feel wrong for a shop to sell their instruments through Sweetwater.

If you are going to go pointy, you should go full pointy...

Never have loved the V. I briefly had a Gibson. They are uncomfortable to play.
Can't wait for the responses to my ad:
"Can I pay over 48 months with no interest?"

That’s an interesting thought, Sweetwater may be able to provide financing on basically private sales. That would be a big edge.

Reverb provides financing through a 3rd party (Affirm).  But if Sweetwater makes the interest by handling financing in house, they will be making more off their exchange than Reverb will.

I agree with you on V’s ergonomics/playability.  17 year old me loved their look, though.

In the "crazy Gibson guitar shape" debate, I'm firmly on Team Explorer/Firebird as opposed to Team Flying V.  

I could actually play this in a club and not feel like a complete fraud (Custom Shop '65 Non-Reverse Firebird):

Funny you should say. The white one was last year's model. Made in Korea. $250 cheaper. May take it back for the orange. We shall see. Either way, NGD for hulla.153d22071c77acc5734e5080656c3c59.jpg

The white/gold is a solid second.  Especially for the price.  Well done.

If you cared about us at all, you'd go back and buy the orange one, too. 

Day isn't over yet and if my wife doesn't settle the fuck down, that very may well happen.  And Vox AC15 was kind of giving me the eye as well.  On the down side, the locally owned but larger shop (Ken Stanton Music) got sold to Music and Arts (aka  Guitar Center).  HATE that but the staff is still the same and they are all great guys.  

Saving $250 with the white one gives me that much more to spend on the amp for my pedal steel.  The Blues Jr just doesn't sound right (can't be me...gotta be the amp).  I also bought a small shop volume pedal that is much smaller than the Goodrich pedals you see.  I thought that might be a good idea to save space but it doesn't give me the sweep that I thing I need.  Found a factory blemish for $185 ($250 new).

I'm gonna need pics of the volume pedal and an update on amps that are contenders.

The only pedal steel player I played with was way back in hs and I wanna say he used some big solid state peavey with a 15. Does that sound right? Sounded fantastic.
Yep. That is what most of them play. Big speaker, lots of clean headroom.

Somebody just ordered the double cut LP Special on Reverb at full asking price.

On the other hand, I've learned this week that Reverb has increased their fee's since I last sold a guitar there, charge the buyer sales tax, and 1099 me.

Might be better off going consignment through a local shop going forward. Ive got a bunch of amps in about to unload.

This is the volume pedal. Moyo. Found the guy on the pedal steel forum. Next to my Dunlop pedal for comparison. Really compact and built like a tank. I still think I need more travel. Haven't tried the Dunlop yet. e23f9f1e35fcc0b898088176003b2a7e.jpg977bfc6c308d6372cf8aa6e67ca349e3.jpg

I had a friend who had a reverse firebird, I’m still not convinced he knew what it was worth.   These were guys who threw Musicmasters and old Danelectros in the trash.

Gorgeous. But obviously I’m partial to the White & Gold.
