Check out 65 Amps. The Soho I had was unreal with a strat. I actually regret selling that thing. Nothing can touch a 65 or Divided By 13 for single coils IMO. Lot of money, but what hell. It's a...

Depends on how much you want to spend. I've spent a lot of money to nail that tone, but I virtually duplicated EVH's re-amp(slaving) rig using a 50W Mojave Scorpion instead of a '68 plexi Marshall....

This is great advice. I could not have said it better. I'm a pretty decent guitar player, but I can't sing & play at the same time to save my life, even backup :haha:

If you don't like the feel of the thick '59 style neck, get something that feels good to you. Most of my guitars are 1 11/16" or 1 3/4" wide at the nut with approx 18-21mm depth, which are fairly...

While I've never tried that particular Randall, I've only heard a handful of amps that can keep up with a 5150 III. They are seriously badass. I actually owned one for a year, & only sold it because...
