Early Gilmour is all fuzz face. Analogman sunface is still the best for earlier Gimour. Muffs are good for later Gilmour and for running with an OD the way that Gilmour did. FF and BM are two...

It's an ok day, not a great deal. I paid about $300 for my 1960AX cabinet for reference, though mine was pretty beat up. This was also about 4 years ago, so I'm not sure what prices are doing these...

From what I recall, 5150s came biased cold from the factory, so you can get away with just dropping a set of 4 in there without biasing. However, if the amp has ever been re-biased previously, then...

This is because of the taper of the volume pots. Normal, linear taper pots almost work more like on-off knobs, especially with higher output pickups where all the audible change in sound occurs...

I wouldn't be so hung up on having gibsons in there as the guitar itself is not even a Gibson. Seymour Duncan makes the closest recreations of the old Gibson pickups. Seymour was the original...

I'd imagine it is with the Montes neck. I can't tell you how much it's worth, but I can tell you that it's worth way more than what you paid for it.
