    Long ago I read, probably in an interview, that Pete wanted to rename the band after Keith Moon died. They did end up adding a keyboardist, which Pete also wanted.

    That kind of fretboard wear is usually a sign of a good guitar. And/or serious fingernails.

    I got my first guitar, a crappy no-name acoustic, in summer 1974. (I think…coulda been '73.) I was losing interest in the pieces my piano teacher was pushing me to play—Bartók & such—and getting more...

    Yum, that's purdee!

    I've got a set of Thomastik Jazz/Swing 11s on my Kay Jazz II (25 5/8" scale length) but if it were a proper acoustic guitar I'd also give 12s a try.

    Those tuners remind me visually of the junky ones Gibson used on SG Jrs. after they went to the big pickguard.

    Yeah! I've played a few Kessels…very crisp, snappy guitars. The earlier ones are often parted out as the pickups are likely to be worth more sold separately. :( I should keep a lookout for one of...

    Cool stuff. That's a great looking Aristocrat. In the first pic I first thought I spotted a Gibson Barney Kessel Custom, but after a closer look decided it must be a Johnny A, then after yet another...

    Gotoh makes the best modern "Kluson" Deluxes I've come across. I've swapped out the rubbish metal key Klusons in a number of '70s Gibson SGs for Gotohs. The Rotomatic-like tuners they made for Ibanez...

    Yeah, spotted this a few days ago. Pete seems in a very chipper mood in these clips. :) In one brief segment you can see he's got a Hi-Tone head/cab set up in-between a pair of Lazy J combo amps....

    My beef with Rotomatics isn't about stability (they're fine) but feel. I can never get a sense of how much I need to turn a tuning key to get x amount of pitch change.

    Some guitars are just particular about the strings they like. With roundwounds my old Tele all but explodes when I hit the low E…really unbalanced. But with a set of flats the string-to-string level...

    I have the box of *Dylan's '66 UK shows, and this song is almost always a spellbinding highlight. Once he gets in the groove it seems like the song could keep going of it's own accord for hours....

    Not to mention all the effects pedals his company has designed or reissued. Most of my MXR gizmos are Dunlop recreations of '70s classics.

    The bridge adjusters look bottomed out on the base, but you could go a little lower if necessary by swapping 'em out for thin washers. Gotta watch the break angle over the saddle, of course. I had to...

    The Mojotone version is faithful to the original circuit if authenticity is your thing. The TMB versions tend to aim at a more typically "Marshall sound," while the old 18 watters have their own...

    Very cool. Is this the thick (~3.5") or thin (~2.5") body version?

    Lovely! I find a good archtop brings out the melodic side of my playing. Flatwounds tend to do the same…must have something to do with their warm tone and ease of play.

    Both my basses are sub-34": an early '80s Rickie 4001 and a mid '70s Fender Mustang. I mostly play the Mustang bass…it feels the more guitar-like of the two and, given that I don't own a proper bass...
