The Budda Wah is a superb. True bypass as standard and built to last. I paid ?100 for a mint 2nd hand one on Loot - can't think of a better one for the money. Has to be done!

Robert add's a discreet sticker to flag the mod on the casing (front above 9v adapter socket), plus changes the LED to trademark ice blue which is kinda cool. Signed letter enclosed with Ibanez booklet detailing exact mod spec. Adds ...

I bought the bugger today for ?699.00, which included the fluffy vintage style hard case that looks like a tart's handbag. Very pleased, sounds pretty good, looks real nice and the action happens to be dead right for me which is handy while I play the rascal in. It's been quite a day. This morning t...

Hey there, have you tried the tone chart with audio sound bites for the Seymour Duncan range at the main site? I reckon it does help. Why not think about a custom British hand-wound pickup? Kent Armstong Rewinds (UK) are getting some good reviews, sold under the Wizard badge. Good value too - around...

Hmmm I think you're right, but then as you say if it's bought for hi-gain then should be no problem 'cos I haven't heard one word but praise for that. On the subject of smaller amps, what do you reckon is the god of living room amps right now? I need something purely for home. The Flextone II I have...

Tried the latest model recently. Very much a matter of personal teste I'd say - but I wouldn't hold your breath. Obviously an odd sort of plank and feels decidedly midrange quality wise.

Not sure it's much to be excited about. But don't let me put you off! :roll:

I still haven't got over when he cut his hair on leaving UFO. Or leaving UFO for that matter. It all just hurts a guy, you know.
