    Do you think guitar music will ever be great like it was from 1954 to 1979?

    Amps you sold but should have kept

    New R9

    Bought another one a couple of days ago. It's an R9 with a Hard Rock Maple top. Colour is Stanley burst, which I believe is named after the one played by Paul Stanley. I hadn't really gone out to buy another R9, but this one really sounded nice. The HRM certainly made the Burstbuckers a bit...
