They are the 5" model Beam Blockers. This was previously my TOV and Cab that was traded to ToneAddictJon. He's completely right that they even out the V30's. They also make the cab omni-directional. So you can hear yourself better around the stage - and not send an icepick of treble to the people s...

Back in the mid 70's for me. Peavey Standard head with a 1x15 cabinet. It sounded awful.

I'm running a similar setup. Variety of PRS guitars with the 172 G2 into a Mesa 3Ch Recto. I run my sensitivity up pretty high and get occasional peaks as well. I don't think it'll hurt anything, and apparently there's some mild compression going on in there to prevent it from rasping out when you p...

WTB: Morley Power Wah Volume

If you have one in good shape for a reasonable price. If interested, I have a nicely modded (LED + True Bypass) Crybaby GCB-95 that I could trade.

If you're using a Les Paul to tune down, you're going to need some fairly heavy strings to keep from the strings going sharp when you pick them. Ideally, a guitar with a longer scale length would be more suited to tuning down. I use 13-56 on my PRS and tune down to a B, and even that's almost on the...

What he said. The lawsuit really torqued me off as well. :evil: I was a huge Gibson guy until they started having serious issues with their guitars showing up at stores and in customers homes with major problems. Years later, I'm still hearing about this kind of stuff happening. They simply refuse t...

The SC245, Santana Signiture models, 1980 West Street Limited Edition models all sport a 24 1/2" scale length. Don't quote me, but I believe I heard Paul say that it's actually closer to 24 5/8".

Is this what you were referring to?

Let me start off by saying that I'm not trying to bash anyone. Yes, I'm a PRS guy. I visited the PRS factory a few weeks ago, and I didn't see machines making guitars. I saw three CNC machines that do the rough shaping of the guitars - two for the bodies and one for the necks. And a whole bunch of p...

Thanks, guys! Yeah, MG. The new model SC250 has an adjustable stoptail as standard equipment. Basically, PRS discontinued the High Gloss Singlecut model this year. In it's place are two variations. The 245, which has a 24.5" scale length and the 250, which has the standard 25" scale length. Then the...

We play at youth retreats at RRR Ranch in Chesapeake about twice a year, and a lot of special events at churches, plus various Relay for Life events in the tid...

Thanks for the kind comments, guys! We are called Hemotheory, and we're from all over the tidewater area, but the band is based in Va Bch. I'll say this. CE's are killer guitars. Their lower price point is not an indication of inferior quality, playability or tone. They're right up there with the Cu...

Changing to EL-34's will take the harsh edge off and give it a rounder tone. Go ahead and experiment.
