I know, Dean, but it's related to Washburn through player lineage ;)

General Discussion / Some sounds

Me and my drummer were bored so we improved this delish little shoegaze track...

2 guitars, both through Roland Loopers with (guess the effects lol) and a pair of JC120s

Drums are just a snare and hi-hat sitting on the couch lol

mic'd from the ceiling..

General Discussion / Warning - Bugera Heads
« on: November 17, 2014, 11:33:06 AM »
So I was tempted by the "cheap plexi clone" Bugera 1960 head, specifically because you can jump both channels and blend them.

I played it for 10 minutes after bringing it home and it flashed the 5 flash of death and never came on again.

Luckily, they had an amazing Mesa with 6l6s they offered me as replacement at the local music shop.

However I just want to say; all the warnings you hear about bugera hold true. STAY AWAY

Post your most personal cherished guitar porn ;)

I know it's not a Washburn, however it was acquired via a Washburn trade (shifty eyes). So let's keep it open to makes other than Washy.

My most cherished

my second most cherished is still a Washy

Lets see those rare ones you hide under your mattress from the wife.

General Discussion / Signal Chains
« on: September 04, 2014, 09:14:07 AM »
What are your signal chains? How do you like to configure your signal chain for live or recording situations?

Board 1 (Left side of Mic) [Boss DS1 - Boss DD3 - Boss DD3 - Boss DD7 - Vox Wah - Boss CH-1] (right side of Mic board [Boss DS-1, Boss Compressor/Limiter, Signal Splitter, Home-made Volume Pedal (Sometimes: Boss ME-25) ] -----------> Stacked JC120's or Beckemer Head to Laney 2x12 Cabinet.

For Bass I just go through a Polytune -> Filter (Lowpass/Highpas/Bandpass) -> Crate Head -> Power Cleaner -> Fender 5x10 + Traynor 1x15

Recording I've always recorded clean straight through DI and then applied effects after the fact.

I'm just curious how others have their signal chain routed.

General Discussion / Amp (Speaker) repair
« on: September 03, 2014, 09:15:53 AM »
Hey boys and gals,

So I used to fix speakers back in they day but the demand from a guitar speaker is much more than a bookshelf speaker which is simply fixed with some silicone or a cloth patch and elmers glue.

It's a vintage JC120, the guy I bought it off was trying to sound like JT of the New York Dolls and had the great idea to "punch a hole in the speaker with a pencil". (moron).

Now there is a tear from the hole to the cone.

I figured I could probably make a cloth patch and use something stronger than Elmers Glue (wood glue?) so theirs no impedance on the movement of the cone but also no more distortion on the clean channel from the rip.

Anyone with any advise please chime in, I'm broke right now so I can't afford to replace the speaker and need to stack my two JCs right now (thus need to fix this, if albeit temporarily).

General Discussion / Found in pawn, thoughts?
« on: August 16, 2014, 11:16:13 AM »
I recently sold my KC-70 and miss it.

However I was in the local pawn and saw a KC-LTD, never ever heard of a KC-LTD, it's red, I can't remember much more about it but they only want $100 and I bet I could talk them into $75 easy peezy.

So, anyone know anything about this one, is it a prototype? Which KC series is it likely closest too?


General Discussion / Buy Buy Washburn

Today I say goodbye to my KC-70, having traded for a Charvel Desolation™ DS-1 FR

I hope I don't miss you... but it's time for change :(

General Discussion / Paul Stanley Bass?
« on: August 05, 2014, 08:48:38 AM »
There is a Washburn Paul Stanley Series Bass at the local pawn shop. WTf? I've never heard of these. It looks like it's about 20+ years old, shaped like an X with a sort of enamel finish.

They only want 120.00 for it, if anyones interested I can take some pics and help you purchase it. I play bass but only Warwicks :) It looks pretty gnarly, and I imagine if you were in a Kiss cover band it would look cool. I don't know why it has a Paul Stanley stamp on it though.

Hey boys and girls.

So I love my KC-70, it's the perfect guitar for my playing style. I was an SG guy for a long time (tone) but then discovered my love for Ibanez, it seems the KC-70 fits somewhere between both. I swapped out the EMGs for Duncan P-90s and Scorchers (hot rails).

However the big issue I have is the rattlesnake finish, I'm sure with some lipstick and teased hair it would of looked bad ass in 1989 but that design didn't age well with the market :P

So my question is, what would this look like sanded down? Is the grain nice? Would a simple sand blast and some stain look good or will I need to paint it?

The other question is, and I know this might come across lazy, but I didn't leave very much play at all in the length of wiring for my pickups, if I tape up and cover them while doing this work do you see any problems occuring? I really don't want to have to do any re-soldering right now.
