and lots of things for guitarists that somehow you just don't
easily find anywhere else together. There's even some guitar amp mods and
conversions of well known amplifiers including 110/120 volt to 230/240 volt mains conversions that some
makers don't want you to know how to make.
If you're fed up of reading reviews that don't quite tell the truth then this website will be a refreshing change and is for you. I have spent years buying musical equipment and showing what it's really like with my 'inside and out' reviews. These insights can save you from making really bad mistakes that later you might well regret; paid for or 'free gear' reviews in magazines and on the internet in many cases could be misleading; but here I pay for everything just like you do, helping to tell it how it really is from my point of view!
Some manufacturers wish this site did not exist! Find out before you buy, be informed and make the right choices before you own it and it's too late.
There are also effects pedals, 'how to' features such as making your own guitar, repairs and maintenance help and more. And my video section shows you how easy it is to fix your guitar or eliminate those sometimes annoying scratches; don't forget to check out videos of great players doing what they do best, playing live, captured with my video camera.
