Yes, and people still got polio and you had to crank your car up by hand and put whale oil in the lamps every night.

Things are better now.

Wouldn't a reissue have the CS logo on the headstock? Plus the label is wrong for a RI. Really, every sign points to a Fat Neck 335. Everything but that one mention of 2008 on the Gibson site is...

You don't really risk being out another 700 in two years, though. Not in any meaningful way. The warranty only lasts two years (or 3 or 5, I assume they're more expensive), it only covers repair and...

Bad power is my first guess, can you try it with a wall wart or a fresh battery?

You should not be getting a volume drop with that pedal with the volume turned up.

No, it's not the pickups. Sounds like a ground issue. Have someone re-flow the ground connections and check the wiring for continuity.

How does it compare to, say, using an Axe-FX with headphones? If I had to play silently that would probably be my solution. Haven't been able to try anything by 2 Note yet though.

T-top replicas would be a good starting place. Unless you go boutique there aren't many options for direct copies. Replacing the magnet on a 490 is a good idea, especially since they are cheap and...

Silo specials are sweet guitars but again you can find them for under 1K used if you're patient. I've seen a few under 900 in the last few months.

Not hot at all. As Fender says they're "vintage style strat single coils" which should put them in the 6-7K range of typical low-output singles.

The 65 and 68 are fairly close. If you like the "Custom" channel on the 68, then it's the one to get. Otherwise the 65 is probably easier to find used.

Nope.

Remember that when you are stepping down impedance, the "least stepped down" tap is 16 ohms. The most stepped down is 4. A "zero transformer" (one whose output was the same as input) would...
