    Any Badlanders in the wild?

    Funny. I was thinking about this a few weeks ago. Have any of you seen any Pro's or Bands you like rocking the Mesa Badlander? Then, I was watching a prepaid stream of one of my favorite bands, 311, and I see Tim Mahony playing one. They were doing their 'Blue' album on live stream song for...

    Super Bowl Gear?

    Joan Jett and Pink Friedman content. Joan Jett was a guest with that band that played earlier. Didn't catch the band name. I noticed: A Marshall head right stage with the logo blacked out/taped over. Weird. Joan Jett's center stage rig was a Vox combo and a Fender or Rivera head...
