    This afternoon I carefully Dremeled out the shape of the CIB in the headstock and glued in the miniature CIB. Looks better than I thought it would since I free handed the embedding carve.

    Kech, looks like I'll be going with the black pick guard... later I will scroll out the diamond plate.

    Get a muliti-layered one. Less static.

    I used to play a LP and an SG through a VOX AC100 hooked to a 4 speaker cab. It sounded pretty good.

    Of course now I canít hear anything over 6Khz, but hey....details....

    A 100 watt Marshall head through a full stack you mean? Yes. More than a few times.

    The problem with them - at least the older ones - is that you have to crank them so loud to get really good tone out of them that unless you're playing big outdoor gigs or stadiums they're useless.

    Just my opinion.

    That seem to be a problem in general with Marshall amps for them to sound toneful they need to be cranked even the 50 Watt combos I've have worked with . They do make power soaks for tube amps but how that would sound with the reduced volume I am not sure . I had never played through a 100 Watt Marshall Head until I repaired one and had to stress it to make sure it was good to go . I then understood why the loud rock guys like them , moving all that air with sound is something to experienced .

    This is true. That's the way tubes function. I think someone used to build analog attenuators to get around that problem....but...you know what they say the definition of a guitar player is:

    A guitar player is someone who stuffs $10,000.00 worth of equipment in a $500.00 car and travel 500 miles for a $50.00 gig.

    Oh, absolutely. Crank it, hit an E chord and get that feeling like you've got the power of a hurricane in your hands and every cell in your body is vibrating. It's awesome.

    The attenuators today are really impressive and actually worth the money. I wouldn't use one without a really good compressor though...but then again I use a compressor at least 75% of the time anyway.
