Thanks! I have another anti-guitar center story. I have a late '67 Twin Reverb (silverface, drip edge, AB763 circuit) with an anvil ATA case. At the local GC there is a brown super that someone has painted black, terrible shape... the back panels are home-made out of masonite (seriously!!!) and it h...

65 deluxe non-reverb model plus '64 outboard stand-alone fender reverb unit is my rig these days. Awesome. I like the tone better than any blackface deluxe reverb i've tried actually :D

got the epi back today! James Millinchuk up here in NJ is a miracle worker. Sounds and plays exactly as I remembered it... he touched up the color and drop-filled the lacquer and you really have to look for the cracks to see them. I'm totally happy.

totally the best. No question. :D There is nothing, and I repeat NOTHING like having a REAL player with good taste working on your amps. He knows what they're supposed to sound like so he can make it happen. The technical know-how of old tube amps isn't that hard... but you have to know what your go...

i bought my 1965 fender deluxe at the guitar center on 75. This was about a year and a half ago and I paid I think $850 for it... not bad. It is the non-reverb model and it had been there for a while and I think they were just ready to let it go. I got it home and it started popping fuses... I took ...

i will come out on record saying I hate all line 6 stuff i've tried. I really really think it all sounds terrible. Sorry :-? Give me a good amp and a good guitar and i'll be fine... add one or two quality pedals and i'm in heaven. I guess you could say i'm just analog all the way... there are no uni...

it's not what I sold, it's what I didn't buy. In about the 10th or 11th grade (1996-97?) I had been saving my yard-mowing money and was ready to buy a serious guitar... I already had a '94 American Standard stratocaster, so I was like "I'll get a les paul now." I bought a nice '83 flametop custom th...

hey hey... I also prefer the C necks. I have a black ST-80 with the chunky V neck from the early 80s... really nice. I'd be curious about your guitar with the C-neck if it's a similar model range.

not the first time i've seen something like this. I have an ST-80 that had "U" pickups in it until I found some original "E" pickups to throw in there.

most of the early 80s and 70s tokai nuts are bone, at least on the higher end models (not sure about the rest)

as far as I know, roughly yes (probably some overlap). Don't know for certain though. There are always exceptions.

I'd say keep it. I'd venture to say that someday you might become of the opinion that it's a superior instrument to your Ibanez. I say wait til the "new" wears off the ibanez then make your choice...
