Allan,
I love open tunings on a six string but it seems like a waste of the extra string on a seven stringer. My seven string is strung with the A6 tuning b0b spells out above. Your G6 tuning looks ...

Tube to socket connection, as Edward said, is the next place I'd look after the pots. I've also seen leaky coupling capacitors cause a crackling sound but I wouldn't go replacing any of those unless y ...

I think it looks like a good deal, especially with the hard case. I've gigged a fair amount with my Model C from the same era and I've been very happy with it. I paid the same for it as that Zephyr is ...

$1,200 seems to be on the low end of the price range for an original blackface twin. Of course, condition is everything. The market for a twin is much narrower than the much more portable DeLuxe (fo ...

If I played pedal steel I would definitely give one of Erv's gospel tune packages a try. Each one has twelve songs that he's tabbed out AND included backing tracks.
