    PRS SE Paul’s guitar in charcoal burst. Haven’t played it yet, had it shipped to a buddy’s place to avoid wife wrath. He’s in love with it though.

    Couple pages back I showed the Harley Benton CLD-15MCE acoustic I purchased for a friend. The other half of that order just arrived, why it took almost 2 weeks longer baffles me, they shipped at the same time from Thomann.

    Anyway... Here is the Harley Benton JB-75MN in natural

    I am amazed what they can offer for $138! Beautiful ash body, AlNiCo pups, brass saddles.

    I will say that Thomann seems to be doing the smart thing by shipping them separate to reduce the chance of damage.

    Grabbed the Positive Grid Spark as they're on sale.



    Seems like they're leaning heavily on modern internet marketing mediums to sell this thing. They've got a lot of youtube demos, plus they're giving special deals to early adopters.

    Got this Boss katana head a few days ago. I’m really liking it so far but I’m just digging into the tone studio software and all than you can do with it. What I’m really looking forward to is trying to run this as a dual amp setup with my Marshall dsl40c.

    i also bit and preordered one of these. the vertical 2x12 cab i ordered from thomann almost a month ago is finally in miami and through customs so knock on wood hopefully it'll be here soon. yesterday i got a set of a2 57 guitar madness pickups and put them in the prs se zach myers (replacing an gm a5 59 set) after my experience with the seth lovers i put in the ad3200. like 'em a lot, although they're bright enough i have to dial the tone back a bit.

    pre-order is $225, it'll be $299 post release. they gave a $20 off coupon good on the pre-order if you entered a sweepstakes a while back but there may be other coupon codes, i dunno.

    I can give anyone my code. Honey entered one automatically so I suspect they’re reusable.

    One thing to her aware of is that they won’t ship until the end if February. Some early adopters are pissed because they expected early January.

    I've been pedal crazed lately.

    I bought the JHS Andy Timmons @ and EHX Metal Muff two weeks apart and got the Wampler Faux Tape Echo in a trade from a member of this forum.

    Very satisfied with all three. d0971304e5b47a4aa8261c5b58c1610c.jpg 4302b30ac9d77856a49e96e4a1479fb0.jpg 06e22ea2b58db8b92ec346a1014ca820.jpg

    grrr. i was fucking sitting right here by the window and the doorbell camera would also have captured any attempted delivery. this thing made it all the way across atlantic and now it's delayed for no apparent reason. the truck never even came by, i'd have heard it from where i sit. i guess i'll try to reschedule it for tomorrow but i won't even be here tomorrow. notice was *not* left of course since they never even came here.

    We attempted to deliver your item at 11:15 am on January 29, 2020 in ALPHARETTA, GA 30022 and a notice was left because the receptacle was full or the item was oversized. You may arrange redelivery by using the Schedule a Redelivery feature on this page or may pick up the item at the Post Office indicated on the notice beginning January 30, 2020. If this item is unclaimed by February 28, 2020 then it will be returned to sender.

    i guess it didn't fit in the mailbox.

    wow this was unexpected. I got sucked into playing keys for yet another 70s "rock shop". We had our first rehearsal last Friday, in a small room @ Mojos. Spotted this at a silly price (click that link) and it followed me home. Best playing epi i ever touched - and i have owned multiple elitists. Just had pro setup, super clean, 04 MIK, OHSC, Dimarzio PAF Pro / X2N. It hits the tubes HARD! Bought to flip, but I'm smitten. Maybe move a Gibson LP Studio to make room. Its that good. Been playing it all week. Very excited about this one.

    been looking at the solid top HB acoustics, especially the parlor sized with the classical style tuners in the burst. They sound good in the demos, but I have a hard time finding a few things to put with it to maximize my shipping costs.
