    Reverb's been hacked ...

    Yep, someone tried to sign me up for 6 user licenses to Netflix for $600 plus and billed me via email. Too bad it's the wrong email and our Netflix account is in my wife's name. Nice try scammers.

    Are there any good Plexi kits?

    I've done 60's Mustards in two of mine, so don't think the SoZo's are expensive. You'll pay 3-5 times more for a complete set of Mustard caps from the 60's.

    Are there any good Plexi kits?

    I went with the Metro (now Valvestorm) kits 5 times. Got them with upgraded SoZo signal caps (the high end ones, not the base SoZo's), Mercury trannies and NOS glass. Pretty frigging close to a real Plexi at that point, as I've had them side by side using a Metro amp switcher to flip back and...

    So I returned an item on Ebay because it wasn't fully functional, now the seller say his accounts are locked and can't refund my CC

    This is what I would do. In the future, always pay with a credit card so you can use the credit card company as leverage with this type of problem. That's why they get their 3% fees, just in case this crap happens.

    ebays new payment man!!!?

    I just checked good old PayPal since I got a large payment in from overseas. They raised the international conversion/convenience/rapage fee from 4.45% to 4.6% this year. Not a huge bump, but when you quote the buyer one fee and it goes higher then they look at you funny. Needless to say, if I...

    Winged C labeling ?

    I thought the important part was that they were brown bases, so I'm not sure what the codes mean. Sorry.

    Anyone own a Les Paul Replica?

    A client came over with his LP replica on Friday with his BrandonWound pickups. He played my Keebler darkburst replica with the JWP pickups...he's ditching his BW set for the Darkburst/Godwood combo now.

    Wow, same name but in Wichita? The Curt Mitchell I know lived near Reno, NV. This does look like it's about another guy.

    Wow, Curt Mitchell was one of my clients. I talked to him on the phone dozens of times up till 2010/2011. None of this sounds like the Curt I knew. He had Charvel endorsements amongst other MI industry people as well. This leaves me totally baffled...and sad.

    Anyone own a Les Paul Replica?

    Depends what music I'm playing that day. I've got three PAF loaded Gibsons, 6 Jim Wagner loaded guitars (5 Gibsons, 1 Strat). It's hard to choose between them all when they all sound superb, you know? I can tell you that the pots/caps upgrades make a big difference, so don't cheap out on those.

    Anyone own a Les Paul Replica?

    I have two LP replicas. The top one has an early Patent # neck pickup (same as a PAF in my case), while the bridge is a real PAF from a 61 SG. Old Black Beauty Sprague caps/pots/etc with Historic plastic, no wire ABR-1, lightweight tailpiece. The bottom one has Jim Wagner Darkburst neck pickup...
