    Amps and Cabs
    Hi everyone, As I already mentioned in another thread, I am about to get back into playing electric guitar. Does anyone have any thoughts on the second-wave of Yamaha THR modelling amps? I had a look with the search but only found people discussing the originals. I am after something that will...
  2. Yamaha THR10X headphone issue

    Amps and Cabs
    Calling out to Yamaha THR users! I’m having an issue using my THR 10X with headphones (Sennheiser HD 598Cs) via a 3.5mm to 1/4 inch jack converter. The output through the headphone sounds flat (like without any cab simulation), so if anyone has any idea or experience in this case, I’ll really...
  3. Choices (I've had a few NSDs lately)

    Amps and Cabs

    Acoustic Guitar
    hey all, I’m looking for a guitar for my dad’s 70th, got it down to a takamine gd30 or a Yamaha fs800. I was about to buy the tak but then I started thinking that a dreadnought may not be ideal or most comfortable for someone just learning to play. I’m really torn; which would you get? Thanks!
  5. Yamaha fg700ms vs Takamine g530 vs g330s vsbs

    Acoustic Guitar
    Which one would you buy as a gift for my dad’s 70th; he wants to learn, keep the mind young. If I could find a takamine gd30 Nat I’d go with that so I’d get the pinless bridge and two piece saddle, but can’t find one used anywhere. I could also grab an art and lutherie ami spruce for a great...

    Acoustic Guitar
    I recently tried a Yamaha FG 800 and was impressed. Please understand that this is a $300.00 (CDN...taxes in) guitar. I was impressed GIVEN the price point.

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Hey guys, A buddy I jam with has an older Yamaha Dave Navarro Sig Acoustic Electric. He had left it for I do not know how long out of the case and it has apparently dried out. I haven't seen it yet, but he said that the bridge is sinking (or something to that effect) because it dried out. I...
