I agree.

1965Strat, you should keep your new baby. You put alot of time and effort into her, and that will never be compensated with $$$. :D

I appreciate your comments guys... I really do. The main reason why I'm selling this stuff is because I need money for other things now. I'm about to go back to flight school and get my Flight Instructor rating. Doing that is the only way that I know of flying for pay right now.

Don't worry I'm not selling my Twin or my Plexi that I built. I'm just selling my JTM45 because it's not really anything I need right now. It's a great amp, but a Plexi and a Twin will cover a TON of ground and if I decide that I want another JTM45 type amp, I will work on that then. Until then I need money more. It's really a beautiful thing and I'm honestly pleased with how well I did on it. I'm just learning to prioritize things and I guess that's just part of growing up. I'm not selling any guitars, just one of my effects racks (I'm keeping the pedals)

I'm really not selling any of my effects gear, I'm just simplifying it.

Thanks for your concerns guys! :)

I couldn't believe it either!

Burst said:"i tried the same setup and sounded like ****!!!!!!"

Yeah well, some say the same about Boogies :D

Its in the head but if you can't get it out the fingers your (as Burst sez)"****!!!!!!"

I'm sure personality helps, I keep looking for a good used one on Ebay.

"I think if Hendrix had a POD, You would be amazed"
Just the thought of that makes me shutter.

ljay, i dont go with the majority either!! i know i have pissed off or hurt feelings of board members, whatever!! i will say hendrix was in the golden era of equipment,imo and yeah there is always a hotshot that can "play anything and make it sound great".....i heard that when i raced motocross,the best riders can" ride anything and win"...........the fact is the greatest players never much receive airplay,but the players that write the good riffs and connect with the audience DO usually make more money and succeed in the industry,imo........i happen to know a couple of guitarists from my state that have had top 40 hits and recorded with big producers on cbs and other labels.....both of these guys were asked to play melodically and fit the song and all of these guys had a choice of equipment and used stuff from the 50s-60s-because the engineers preferred this stuff and so did they........neither of these guys is a great guitarist,but they both still get radio play because they played tasty riffs on awesome sounding vintage gear that still sounds great 15-25 years later................an average guitarist and great riffs can go along way sometimes.......jcs

JCS,
You used to race motocross? Me too! I used to be REALLY into it. Moto's, Hare scrambles, Trials, the whole bit. I was very competitive for a while, but man does it ever take its toll!
If this were a MX bbs, I would be MrMaico!!!!

Tone is mostly in the fingers. OK, enough of that.

I used to race dirt bikes too, back when they were steam powered. I learned one important thing: If you are afraid of getting hurt, you will NEVER win!

Another career down the drain. :)

I have to agree.

Tone is bought and sold.

When I upgraded my rig for a firebreathing mesa boogie beast, my tone immediately became mucho better.

The funny thing is I think my playing has actually gotten a lot better because of that tone too... it still sucks but much less painfull to listen to ;)
