It may sound like a cliché but you need to be at one with the guitar for the inspiration to flow.
Buying a new guitar is a considerable investment for most of us.
To get the best possible experience, it is therefore important that you’ve done some research and decided on what kind of model you’re looking for.

However, over the last decade or so, the MIMs has gotten a considerable face lift and the overall quality is very high.Electronic components such as transformers, potentiometers, speakers, and some capacitors are often stamped with a date code, which indicates the manufacturer and the manufacturing date.The code follows the format: = a number from 1 - 52 indicating the week of manufacture.These are marked with EIA code “606” which is the company number for Schumacher.Well, this universal “truth” was debunked when we found a bunch of amps with transformers made by the Better Coil and Transformers company.
