    Fuck. I just gave my kid brother a 5150 head and a combo popped up for $250, had to snag.

    Dokken - Back for the Attack (with Japanese bonus title track and Walk Away from Beast from the East)

    I get a strong Paul Stanley 78 solo album vibe from Walk Away, especially the opening of the track. There's another song with lots of acoustic where the last few notes remind me of a KISS song, but I can't remember which for either band at the moment.

    So I found something extremely rare.

    A 2nd hand R&R Sound SL/LD preamp. Here in the US.

    HAD to fucking do it. :lol:

    I’ve been doing a lot of work around the new data protection rules here in the UK, which are called GDPR, and it’s really making me want to buy a Fryette GDPI.

    That combo is killer. I got a crazy deal on mine too and will probably stay forever. Love that amp.

    Now that I got my Moderns installed, I cant decide on if I want another set, or to try a set of Classics in a different guitar. I am learning towards the Classics though.

    Moderns: More mids, less highs, more gain and compression
    Classics: LOTs more highs/high mids, slightly scooped, less gain and compression

    There, saved you $250. :lol:

    Yeah, you'll wanna avoid the Classics and the Merrow in that case.

    Sounds like you want the Devy set. They sound like the Moderns, but smoother.

    If all goes well with my Tele project, possibly a new neck and bridge pickup for it. Looking into the Wilde NF-200TN for the neck and... well... not 100% sure for the bridge yet. :lol: Was considering experimenting with some cheapo pickups.

    Anyone know if there's a way to get Irongear pickups here in the US? Any distributors?

    After that... not sure. I'm selling off a lot of gear to fund either a Charvel Joe Duplantier Pro Mod, a Mesa Mark III, Mark IV, or a PRS MT15.

    how cheap of pickups are you looking to get? entwistle makes some sick stuff, same with warman or dragonfire (who i'm pretty sure is supplied by artec just like irongear/gearheads).
