Thank you guys! Red Barchetta, I never quite know what to say when somebody thanks me for my service. The Military has been pretty good to me. The roughest thing I've ever had to do is one Med cruise and my present assignment. I'm just finishing up a year long stateside geographic bachelor tour. I j...

Thanks Dave. I feel more comfortable about picking one up without hearing it first. I'm pretty easy to please anyway. I think the thing would really have to suck for me to not like it.

With all due respect, as an employee of the organization YOU SHOULD have a voice in helping to improve the organization as a whole. You have been participating in these forum discussions, and you have heard for yourself the opinions of customers and/or "potential" customers. I think that you should...

I disagree with your comments about Mars. They were all about treating the customer right. I dealt with them exlcusively for the entire time that the Virginia Beach store was open. I did a lot of business with them and never once had a bad experience there. Their service was always outstanding wheth...

there is a reason we can justify sticking to 200 bucks on a whammy, its the best deal youre gonna find, period. and if not, we want to know about it, because we guarantee the lowest price, even at full pop. but thats not to say i wont make sure every deal happens. customers leaving empty handed is ...

I'm not in the market for any more guitars at the moment, but I really like the way the C-1's sound into Rectos.

I run mine in by coming out of one of the 8 ohm jacks into my top cab, then from the top cab down to the bottom one. It's safe to run the next step, but I wouldn't go any further than that.

I usually start with the bass at about 3:00, mids at 9:00 and treble at about halfway. If there's a presence control, I dime it. Then I season to taste.

I play just about anything, but I do lean more towards the heavier stuff. My DR is set for more of a "heavy vintage" kind of tone. I just really like the fact that it has the capability of getting disgustingly nasty when I want it to. I respect the available tonal palette that the DR has. It's much ...

Some might argue that guitars made by non-union robots shouldn't cost 2 grand. I really like the guitar though. The tuners are kind of cheap, my one complaint. The "vibrato" could be cheap too, I don't use it. The arm stays in the case, where it belongs. I was "thinking" of getting a Custom 24 in t...

between the two Id pick the traditional. The smaller cab does give it a tighter bass response regardless of your tuning, this is pretty important for people playing more modern metal and hardcore. I actually dont even like the traditional sized one, because I frankly dont like vintage30 speakers by...

Well, since I sold everything but my PRSi, I don't feel too bad either. None of mine are really spectacular, but they really sound fantastic to me. There is a 5th in the plan, but it'll be a while before it materializes. Only the 20th Anniversary models have "20th" on the TRC. If you like the sound ...
