BEST PLACES ON INTERNET
FOR GUITAR STUFF
by Mark King for proworkshop.com
What is Guitar Stuff? It's everything except for main stream branded instruments. It's pots, bodies, pickups, tuners, capos, slides, strings, string cranks, stomp boxes, speakers, tape echo, true bypass switches, tone controls, all sorts of interface boxes, tremolo systems, instrument cables, transformers, tubes, op amps, patch cords, patchbays, and on and on it goes.
Where are the best places on the internet to get this stuff?
I ended up with more than 10 so you'll have to pick your favorites if you only want 10. All are unique and good. They're in alphabetical order (not order of goodness :-)
Parts, stomp boxes, no name guitars, tubes, strings, necks
I bought this vintage Stratocaster style neck for $27 delivered in two days from Amazon.
amplifiedparts.com (parent company to modkitsdiy.com)
Kits, tubes, electronic parts, transformers, reverb tanks, lots of cool stuff for DIY
Very cool 8-watt tube amp kit here, also a fun spring reverb kit, great selection of tubes.
custom guitar speaker cabinets, speakers, direct sales, reasonable prices
My brother has been a big cheerleader for Avatar speakers over the years. They've grown a lot, now they have multiple amplifiers. Periodically they have good sale prices on Celestion speakers but you gotta watch and compare.
Sometimes used is best, eBay is one of the kings of online auction sellers
I bought two Kurzweil 2000 keyboards, 10 Kurzweil 1000 modules, my DX7, and lots of other fun gadgets off eBay. It blows my mind how inexpensive midi sound modules have become.
