thanks Jeffy. This is a pretty sweet guitar. Lots of sustain. Can't go wrong with the 335 or Midtown either!

I have one lying around unused if interested. Spent a year or so with me in Nicaragua. Couple paint chips, but it plays well.

I am greatly liking my epi sg that I bought.

Has a much better feel to me than my strat clone.

I do believe I'm going to build one of the tube amp kits floating around on the net.

Any of you guys try a Roland AC-33? I'm looking for a small acoustic amp and the looper function intrigues me.

I dunno if there's a drum thread, but I know some drummers frequent this one, so I'll ask here:

What's a good electric kit that's underneath $400 or so? I'm essentially building the world's quietest practice rig without noticing until now. I have a tiny guitar amp and bass amp to match, and I'm buying another guitar amp soon. A band that can perform without a PA could get a lot more done in the songwriting department, I think.

I don't know about the Speedster but, I got the EG-1 and it is perfectly balanced. I guess the extra meat they put on the body of the EG-1 would make a pretty big difference.

I couldn't be happier with mine. It's not without it's faults though. The thing was a bitch to keep tuned at first. There are a lot of binding points on it. Once the strings set in, it's a really nice little guitar. The built in head phone amp (Pocket Rocket) really cranks it out too!

I think more about my scales than my equipment. Is this wrong?

It's nice to have good equipment to play them on.

It's the rider, not the bike. A good rider will go faster on whatever bike he's on.

Absolutely, but favorite humans are always harder to discuss than favorite objects.
