My fault for not quoting cleanly. He'd be so happy to know we're still talking about him, though. The ghost of Ed strikes again.

No, he wasn't. He was a lot of things but nobody ever accused him of being a great guy. He was a miserable old coot on a good day.

He wasn't 100% wrong in his views, but they're so hyperbolic and...

Agreed, and it's an important factor to note that the innovations they've had in recent years - the Min-e-tune/G-Force, the Firebird X platform - have been bought rather than developed by Gibson....

I think Dave's got the right idea. Comparing Fender and Gibson across the board is a bit too broad. Gibson, for better or for worse, refuses to make a guitar outside the US. They have always been and...

I had a Headrush for years, it is definitely a good sounding pedal, I just never thought of it as sounding like a tape unit. It has the head offset features, but with those off, I don't think you'd...

The Akai is a nice pedal but it doesn't particularly sound tapey, it just has the multi-head and tape gap features. I haven't tried the Wampler.

I'd check out the digitech obscura.

Gibson redesigns the Les Paul every year or two, and has for decades. Their customers won't buy anything that strays too far from the Standard recipe, though, so those models fall by the wayside. The...

Can't possibly answer that for you. Keep in mind that as long as you don't crack the finish too bad you'll immediately cover it up with the pickguard.

Been there, done that, got a POD.

And I had the Palmer. It's a great unit but it just doesn't make sense to burn through tubes to get a neutered version of a big amp through headphones. If you...

Check the preamp tubes just in case, then it's off to a tech.

Usually a time delay like that means that something is heating up and coming loose, and needs to be re-soldered properly.

Most of the Traynor lineup doesn't need to be biased, but I'm not sure about the YCV50 specifically. It should be in the manual. In any case, even if it does need to be biased it won't hurt anything...

You don't need to worry about flatwounds going out of tune with pressure on a fretless. They pull out of tune on a fretted instrument because they glide easily perpendicular to the fret, and when you...

Tube availability shouldn't be too much of a problem, I wouldn't shy away from a tube amp if it's got the sound you're looking for.

A quality POD is a good option, depending on the application, but...
