http://www.somethingabout.net/mastersound/index.html - thats pretty much it. I bought les paul dial clear white dial covers to put on it but never got around to it. its a 6 string, circa 2000 i think

the JCM is head only, but i hava a quad (Eminar) that im going to throw in with it. both head and quad have seen road use so are in " used" condition but both work v well. head is moded with 2 extra tubes ( not output tubes, the little ones) + an effects loop.

I also have a valvestate 1X12 100W combo, but ill probably hold onto that.

ah cmon, it had a Floyd Rose, you could have just used those little bridge tuners!

i have an 80's jap strat with locking tremolo at my parents place in a million pieces that im rubbing back to natural to clear coat and use.

Repair costs, and general stuff, like fret dressing costs, are rediculous. You're better off doing it all yourself, I reckon. What's a fret dress cost these days? $120? Stoopid.

That Charvel was probably worth about $350, and I was quoted $250 to get it fixed! I stripped the paint off my Jackson and put a scratch plate on it, just to make it look less "80s"
mine has a Kahler as well. not a bad piece of kit. ugh, speaking of looking 80's, the reason i pulled my strat down was that its this lovley shade of aqua green, no scratch plate. i think its a metal model. sounds good, looks like the incredible hulk.

Those were the days!!
Saw Steve Vai play at the Palace quite a few moons ago now. Good show - and much hair & tight jeans in the crowd.

I found a link to a sound file for the "cutting heads" duel from Crossroads on the net but it was played on a keyboard in a tinny electronic tone. Sounded weird.....
