    I saw that. I think it's a PS version as the colour looks like FBJ with a purple wash...

    Check out this cool cable with kill switch in it.
    Quite different than other cables that have the slide built in that cut out the pop when you insert/pull the cable.
    It also allows you to make it act like turning your volume control off/on.

    TTK has been busy in the wee morning hours here uploading new vids.

    Another one, I did not realize Randall Amps was still around.
    I was gigging with them back in '72.
    If anyone here is familiar with West Seattle, there was a music store (name escapes me now) next to Admiral Theater that carried them, and they often loaned them to me and the group I was with back then for free to try out



    I hope TTK gets some PRS coverage soon.

    Randall has been around and kicking in the metal world - but over the last decade their reputation has gone to **** in regards to both tone and product build quality.

    Much like PRS did with picking up someone with experience (Doug Sewellllllllll), Randall hired Mike Fortin of Fortin Amps who is a legend in the hi gain amp world. They revamped the whole line and everyone is excited again. Not for nothing, but that amp they demoed in the video sounds reallllllllly good. Mean and agreesive yet pretty darn balanced!

    What is it supposed to be purple with blue/green tints?

    It's weird, but I love it!

    No offense to Cosmic Ape, but this color is almost impossible to photograph well. I've taken several photos of this color and my photos always make the guitar look blue.

    I had one of the RM50 Egnater designed MTS amps for a few years and it was a very cool amp. I really dug it. I don't know why more people didn't catch on to that design. They had all these artist sig preamps available which were all metal guys, but the non-sig preamps ran the gamut of tones from tweed to SLO.

    I bought Gary Howey's CD several years ago, nice to see he is coming out with a new one soon.



    I concur, so much coverage of NAMM I will be busy watching a ton of videos this weekend.

    Wow! I think goldtop might have some strong competition for first color choice in my world. Amazing. I'd love to see it in person.

    Well - I didn't take many pictures this year. It was crazy crowded and any time you stopped, there would be a traffic jam. I only took pics of the PRSi with the birds carved in them. I will get them up as soon as I can.

    The PRS booth was crowded all day. My buddy that I went with fell in love with the PRS 4-string bass and is ordering one. I didn't buy anything other than a G7 capo. I did get to do some cool stuff this year though. I got to go to the TEC awards and see Pete Townsend get the Les Paul award and I got to go to the VIP Reception before the show and the reception after the show. I got to go to a benefit concert that featured some jazz artists I had never heard of, but they were incredible and it was a "sit in and jam" kind of thing where several of the musicians playing together had never even met.

    I finally played a Taylor acoustic (two of them actually) that I liked, but the price point was around $12k...Markie and Phenny introduced me to those. I got to see the ever elusive TImmy Walls for a few minutes...

    The rest of the time I spent wondering around playing guitars, listening to demos of cool gear.

    I had an absolute blast this year...I am already looking forward to next year.
