Instrument of the Day

Music news, rumors, what you're listening to, how you're listening to it and whether it's all on the up-and-up.

I'm now convinced that this is not a mod. You can see little horizontal lines pointing to the low channel for certain outputs and to the high for others. I see a line pointing to a low knob and the other one pointing to a high knob.

It's now really cool, except for the located in England fact.

I really miss my 78 Fawn Marshall Super Bass. God damn JCM900 SLX doesn't hold a candle, it's a lesser beast.

1954 Gretsch Roundup, I love you. But you are far from a cheap date.

OOOhhhhh! Me likey!


Yeah it looks cool except for what I think may be a modification. There appears to an extra pot(master volume?) in the middle of the 4 input jacks.


Mister Mike Patrick would know...he loves this kind of stuff....oh Mikey...?


Looks stock. I don't think it would have been possible to just stick an extra knob in the middle of the inputs like that. Normally there wouldn't be enough room, but it's obvious from the spacing that it came from the factory that way.

<edit>

My Interweb research indicates that Mr. Marshall did wierd things like that with the Park amps so that they would not be confused with Marshall amps. Internally it's almost identical to a Marshall, but he wanted the cosmetics to be different enough so as to avoid confusing the two.

BTW - for all you real guitar nerds out there, this just in...Ed Roman Guitars is closing!
Guess he couldn't make it ripiing off other people's work and selling it as his own.

I know Patrick and Esmond will know what I'm talking about, but for the rest of you check out:
www.edromanguitars.com
and bask in the lunacy.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!

Not really worth it if no cymbals are included.

Sorry I missed this earlier

I have one of these in my basement. Same color too. Had one for my first bass in high school (early 80s), traded it in on a mid 70s Rickenbacker 4001s in blue. Years later E-bayed one back.

The Epiphone EA-260 hollowbody

Walter, you keep us safe AND you rock out?! Awesome!

(There's a TV show by Steven Bochco that I'm trying... REALLY... hard... not to mention right now...)

Like anyone in a high school or college band, I used to think I rocked. Now I know the horrible truth.

Those covers of "Blister In Sun" and "Statue of Liberty" weren't horrible though. Thank you for avoiding the need for police brutality by abstaining from mentioning THAT show.

Since I'm making confessions, I've been learning to play guitar and liberated this from my parents' basement. Same year and approximate condition:

It's not really an instrument but it has one of the best cut sheets I've ever read:

Tempting, very tempting.

It reminds me of the time when I had a job at KB Toy Store for about 20 minutes,
