Sg30 sg35 vs sg30a sg35a

I've read several times that when the A suffix was added the wood was changed. I never saw a mention of a change in tailpiece . I don't know how many on here own or have owned one of these but there are 2 types of tailpiece. A stamped metal version and a more modern looking stop tail. I had my sg5a ...

Re: Yamaha Hundred115B

I'll bet that baby moves some air. Is it from the 80s?

Re: New pedals for my collection

I guess the price is steep. But they are pretty much 40 plus years old and they aren't making any more. So.............

Re: New pedals for my collection

That's a lot of pedals. Have you ever seen a first series OD anywhere or are they really just unicorns?

Re: JX amp caution

Saul No there was no follow up and no reports of electrocution. The person who posted called it "mains" power a term I have only heard on your side of the pond . Leon I have 3 JXs now and I think I saw that one of them had the ground prong cut off. A common practice back in the day when you wanted t...

JX amp caution

I was watching some JX amp videos on Youtube and on one of them was the following comment "To anyone with a Yamaha JX amp: DANGER! These amps have a 'death cap'. I found that I had been playing guitar with live 100v mains voltage on the strings! This was because the live wire is connected directly t...

Re: Eastwood crowdsourcing a Yamaha SX 800B production run

Seems like a strange choice to me as there are always lot's of originals for sale on Ebay and Reverb.

Re: Eastman AC630-BD Blemish or part of the guitars natural uniqueness..what would you do?

Man that is one fab sounding guitar. Not to mention stunning to look at. I was thinking there was going to be some kind of strange mismatch on the top that was only visible with a magnifying glass or something.Then I would have called" Picky Picky Picky". But in the end it was a little jarring to se...

Something I probably should know but don't.

I have the set of SG 700 pups that I am going to put in my 175. One is 8.3 and one 1 is 8.6. Instinct tells me the higher impedance means more winds and hotter pup which means bridge but am not sure. Help.

Re: Yamaha SB-2 what's it worth?

Well there are 2 on US Ebay now one for 1295 and one for 1399. Gotta be worth the high end of Leon's numbers even with one mismatched knob and the missing tuner button. It's got the ash tray which you seldom see.
Really just depends on what you think you want to spend.

Re: NAMM 2019 Blue Cat Re-Guitar Plugin - infinite number of guitar tones out of a single instrument!

I guess if you are already committed to digital sound reproduction this would be OK. Somehow I can't believe it's any kind of substitute for wood and wire.
It would take up way less space than a whole bunch of guitars but where's the fun in that?

Re: sa30 sadness

From the Reverb ad. "This guitar is a really unique, nice playing instrument and I don’t want to sell it! The action is low and it plays great. For sure needs a set up/intonation fixed but the guitar is in stable playable condition as is. Someone cut the headstock down and added Kluson copies. The n...
