    Been looking forwards getting a new amp: I got my heart set on a mark v:25 (but I might save for the 35) maybe post new years I'll be able to get one if the gear I'm trying to sell moves

    I want to get some 3 per side Sperzel locking tuners, but I don't want to have to do any modifications to the guitar. I don't want to have to drill or make the tuner holes in the guitar bigger. I have regular grover tuners in my H500, and locking LTD tuners in my H1001. Does anyone know if they are a direct swap?

    I found a Digitech GSP1101 at a store yesterday and its price tag is 28k pesos (around $700). I never thought I'd actually find one here and now I really want it as an upgrade from my current interface (which only works on my old Windows 7 netbook due to drivers not working on Windows 10). I should probably get it as this year's Christmas present like the Ibanez I got last year.

    I also found a Peavey 6505+ combo for 36k pesos ($900) at another store and I seem to want it as well, but I'm leaning towards the Digitech because it's a lot smaller and lighter. If I could be able to buy both, I could try using it as a gigging rig if I were to play live (GSP1101 as an effects unit or as a preamp into the 6505+ combo's power section).

    Found an HM-2 which is currently in the mail from Japan. So I can scratch that one from the list.
    Next up a proper reverb pedal. Currently on the fence about either a Neunaber Immerse, of a TC Electronics HOF version 2.

    Apparently it was a completely unplanned Randall T2 purchase in amazing condition for £400 shipped.
    Was going to get a rack poweramp but got this instead. Always wantes a randall amp.

    After spending more than a year trying to stay away from the temptation, I might be joining the Kemper bandwagon soon. (While keeping my trusty torpedo live and some not so common preamps/etc. as a profile source)

    Definitely going to purchase another Fryette Sig X.

    I had one for a brief period of time, and sold it to...cwhitey2! I'm glad he is enjoying it...now I want one!

    They are such versatile amps, and they sound ridiculous through Vader cabs.

    I'm so thankful you sold it to me! It's the greatest amp I have ever owned, I even sold the Archon because it wasn't getting any play time! :cheers:

    I was actually thinking about buying another last night...that or a UL as I have never played one of those!

    every single tone demo Ive heard of the Thrasher has "THE tone" I love and have been chasing for a while.
    That twang/clank on the top end. Ola Englund style.
    I swear Randall amps all have that. Its why I pulled the trigger on the Randall I now own (T2)

    Since you already have the Sig X, I would definitely pick up a UL. I also owned one of those, and it was awesome. Another amp I shouldn't have traded away!

    Got a matching 4x12 on the way to go with my JJ... it's from GC used though so the questions are: is it actually in excellent condition, does it still have the original speakers, and will it get here without being smashed to kindling :lol:

    Oh and a Fortin Grind, because why not :lol:

    I found it on Reverb! Hahaha. The one that was going for $1200. I have been eyeing for over a month...then I saw they had a payment plan...and that was the end of that.

    I ordered two of these from MF. With the reduced price and 15% coupon, they're only $118.
    Even if I don't care for the chromeback speaker, I can still upgrade with a WGS or Eminence speaker and still be around or under a $200 each.

    12" VHT ChromeBack 1260 Speaker
    60 watts
    16 ohms
    Closed-back cabinet design
    2 speaker jacks
    Finger-jointed birch plywood construction
