    Marshall DSL401

    I guess you can call this a public service announcement, but I have a customer with a DSL401 with a blown power transformer. I just got the email back from Marshall USA this morning that the power transformers are no longer available for this amp. Mercury sells them for $212.00 plus shipping.

    Guitar intonation. Driving me crazy!

    Okay, I have questions regarding intonation of electric solid body guitars. SGs if you will. So I know that the bridge saddles in the case of a TOM bridge is how intonation is set after string height is set, neck truss rod is set and string clearance at the nut is set. My issue after going...
