    Pawn shop down the street from me had one of those basses. Might still be there?

    I started getting the shakes this morning so I had to buy a new pedal. It wasn't my fault

    BTW, I really need to sell some pedals I've got 7 or 8 for sale. Give me a shoutout!

    Got a used DigiTech TRIO plus. I needed a looper pedal and this adds a few more things. 82a67a3a859c76c5f7f40bf4ea8ce410.jpg

    You definitely put a few guitars together. How many are you up to these days?

    I’ve been holding out on you guys . I have a back log of a few things I’ve gotten but here is my latest. It was a happy Father’s Day to me.

    Digital soldering station! Haako FX-888D. I considered the Weller brand but the reviews lately have not been nearly as positive as Haako. I think this will be a nice upgrade from the basic solder pen I’ve been using up till now

    Traded for this one. Always have wondered about it.....so here we go!
    Same model as below, but in the seafoam color.

    The new Compact Direct Drive offers up the most desired sounds of the three famous Barber
    drive pedals. With the simple three knob, two toggle switch layout you have an array of
    British drive at your fingertips. So if you're looking for anything from the early British KT66
    tone all the way to the carefully modified early 80's Marshall, the Compact Direct Drive will
    give it to you.

    It's a 2017 PRS McCarty 594 10-Top in Faded Whale Blue. Got a great deal on this one, hopefully it lives up to its hype.

    Very nice! One of the reasons I have not bought a PRS is the one volume one tone thing so this one I find really interesting due to giving us more tone options with two of each.

    Running it through my Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier as a boost. Only messed with it once this week and it was noisy AF. Going to need to play with it and see if I can dial it in, if not, it’ll be on the block.

    I get that, and I had that same reservation, too, at first. but i've become accustomed to it.

    The 594 is supposed to nail the LP tone better than any other, so we'll see.

    @solteroblues Great job on the 594. I'm tempted to buy one if I can find a killer deal. Haven't found a deal I couldn't pass up yet.

    No idea what that is but I like headless guitars (mostly for being light and easy to travel with). Tell me more and let me know if you ever think of selling.

    That guy sure makes it sound sweet. New pedal report when you get it.

    Sweet. Please let me know if you figure out how to change the key of the bass...

    Picked up a partscaster off of FB Marketplace:

    Wilkinson bridge (haven't figured out which one) made by Gotoh.
    Sperzel Locking Tuners
    Stewmac Golden Age Overwound Pickups Zebra.
    Warmoth Body and Neck (I have not yet verified this).
    I definitely bought it for less than what the parts should cost.

    Was up on Milwaukee Craiglist. Brother-In-Law grabbed for me and my awesome wife fronted the cash as a Father's Day Gift.
    Peavey Valveking Royal 8. Super little amp. Lean and mean. Way better than the single knobbed Nano I had.
    Was going to swap in a Celestion Eight 15.....no need. fd7733400b6b7b23b7264d57bac0905c.jpg
