It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Sexyness. Are you gonna put that logo you made on it?
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.
#26
i'm really debating. i really don't want to cover up the beautiful grain in the headstock as of now...

Hot, the only downside I can see is the Nitro, but after a year any problems arising from that will leave

The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
#30
Yeah, it just gets sticky after playing sometimes, you notice it on Gibsons with their nitro necks, but after a year of use the solvents dissolve or something and it's nice and smooth, and from then on you got your relicing

The flame maple is gorgeous by the way.... I think you should get the decals for the Eric Johnson fender neck and put them on, you could blag it to your friends that it's an EJ Strat neck

#31
lol yea. nitro is kinda sticky. i'll deal with it later. i just can't stop watching it tho. the neck grain is incredible.

and im going to bed.

UPS is alot better than fed ex, so dont complain.


as for the neck, i see a few flamed ones go by me every once in a while. make me go "that guy is gonna be happy once he sees it done"

but the CS has some awesome flamed necks.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

Congrats EC, that is one FINE looking neck, the first picture of the headstock (remembering im now at work) and I was like wow!...needless to say people asked why I let out a gasp.

PS. is it just me or are there very large amount of dust on your keyboard?

the only problem I see is that do you want to put that neck on that body. Maybe you should get a new body/pick-ups as well.
#38
Wow, that looks really sexy and nice. I wouldn't spend $360 on a neck, but that is indeed nice.
#39
Seriously, though. Damn you and your temptations. I've been considering replacing the neck on my Strat for a while now.
