The only way to get a hold of him is for the mods to email him. even than his replies are few and far between. His only contribution to this site was taking down the front page, deleting all of the custom mods, resetting the visual templates, and adding a luthier section.
Yep sometimes you just have to let shit go. My stuff remains difficult to sell because I'm trying to maximize cash I guess. Obviously people on this board are able to make me offers on my listings, and I say the same thing on Craigslist, but I don't expect anyone around here to buy tube combo amps. The 8-string is spoken for. I am fairly close to giving up and eBaying the stuff, but the Mark IV amp is sitting in a shop on consignment and they're one of the top Mesa dealers in the USA, so...
This is like a complete and total gear change. It's frankly ridiculous and a big headache and it's taken forever. As far as the 8 goes, my hands simply aren't quite big enough in my opinion - I can play every fret on the guitar, but it feels like I have to work at it too hard. I'll be getting a custom 7 from Strictly 7 to replace it, hopefully.
Yeah I sold a few pedals. I also downgraded to the Standard. I have absolutely no fucking clue what % I'm at, I just felt like bumping it up. Basically once one of my amps or my 8-string goes, I'm buying the Axe.
