I think the wheeled cases that came with my MSA's weigh around 20 lbs. I went from a very heavy Clark D10 to a Williams keyless D10 around 1985, and it felt like I was only carrying about half of a gu ...

Bryan, a buffer for aluminum should run around 3400 RPM, a guitar body buffer should run around 1000-1200 RPM.

Here's the polisher I use for aluminum, it started out as a Harbor Freight unit, but t ...

Like the old saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure". Sound is so subjective, everyone hears differently. I've heard some pro players that I didn't care at all for their tone, and ...

"Midnight Silence" just popped up on my Itunes playlist, it was on the "Lloyd Green and His Steel Guitar" album.

I'm a fan of Alumitone pickups, which I tend to use most of the time in my newer MSA's. I hear good things about Telonics pickups, but I haven't tried one of those yet either. I have five different se ...

You're right Bob, everyone has their own opinions, I think the old MSA single coils were some of the best I ever heard, I assume they were designed by Danny Shields. The '75 Classic I restored sounded ...

Bill Mack also used "Sound Waves" for bumper music for his midnight show on WBAP in Ft. Worth. I heard it for years before I knew who played it and bought the record it was on.

That's the setup I use Brad, sometimes I want the effects to die out on their own instead of being cut off by the volume pedal.

On one setup I used two MB100's, one before the volume pedal for dis ...

Besides the great sound, it's extremely easy to make adjustments on the fly, just like separate stomp box.

I just got a G5N a few days ago, but it's way different than my G5X, so I have another le ...

Exactly Damir, that's why I don't care much for bluegrass music, after 2 or three songs it all sounds the same. Most of these lightning speed "songs" are so far from the melody it's unrecogn ...

I need a speaker for an old Peavey Pacer I'll be refurbishing. It needs to be 12", 8 ohms and reasonably priced. PM or email what you have.

What Donny said. Supersustain pickups didn't show up until the late '70s or early '80s, and this guitar is WAY older than that. I think the only thing MSA on the guitar is the pickups.

I've never had a problem on the 4th string either. Evidently MSA recognized the scissor limitation somewhere in the early 70's because they changed the design. I'm not sure of the timeline that Bud Ca ...
