Episode 84 – Old Cheap Guitars

This time around I talk a bit more about the Steve Vai interview in the latest Vintage Guitar magazine – modded & hot-rod guitars – Ibanez Jem guitars & Old guitars. Listen up!

  • Story about the guy I grew up playing guitar with and how he got really good over one summer.
  • Old cheap guitars that just talk to you and make you buy & love them
  • Identify slot head guitars date – pre 1926 or post 1926

This guitar was made after 1926 – see that the tuning peg post is above the gear. Pre 1926 slot head guitars have the gear above the post.

Episode 43 – Class A vs. Class AB Circuitry

Listen to the episode!

Alright folks. I’ve heard enough about class A and class AB and how class A is so much better than class AB. I’ve had plenty of conversations, people ask me about class A and so on that it’s high time I did an episode on class A circuitry.

Some background must be covered to really get a better understanding of what is going on in the amp and where this classification is derived.
