The have the regular ones as well, which look a little more like what you are looking for: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Livewire-QM ... 2709088.gc


That's perfect. Thanks.

Here is a picture of my current board configuration. The bottom row was all joined with the offset plugs (the first link in the previous post).

Those male-to-male connectors are super common, like, everywhere. :)

Amazon has a wide selection, if you don't have a friendly neighborhood independent shop to support:

...but my board is packed tight, and I've found you actually get the pedals closer using "flat head" right angle patch cables, like these:

Definitely! Unfortunately, we didn't have a place around here that had them other than GC. I'm usually not one to plug them, but there you go.

Dude we don't even have shop in SF to support. We have Guitar Center, a place called Real Guitars that mostly for vintage repairs, the Haight Street shop that charges 25% over list because Haight St. is hippie magic man, and a very small hole-in-the-wall with 12 new off-brand Chinese guitars, 10 used nothing special guitars, a bunch of dusty distortion pedals, some PA gear, and one really nice '60s Jaguar hanging behind the counter for years. We used to have one good shop, Rocker Guitars, but they closed and went custom-weird-stuff only, like 15-string harp guitar looking things.

I can't believe there's no cool music store in SF.

Anyone else find this response... odd?

I emailed ESP asking what year the model Eclipse is that I own.

Their response is below.

Thank you for contacting us. The serial number provided does register in our system as belonging to an ESP Standard Series Eclipse in Vintage White. This instrument may be authentic, however authenticity cannot be certified from photos only and often records for certain instruments are not available. Therefore if definite proof of authenticity is required, you will have to return your instrument to ESP for evaluation.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and hope this limited information is helpful. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

It just sounds like they didn't keep accurate records for awhile.

These were probably counterfeited at some time, somewhere. If they were made in Asia, especially China, then it's close to guaranteed that something shady's gone down somewhere down the line. So, before sending you an email definitively stating your thing is a real thing, they want to hedge their bets, lest they accidentally certify something that isn't legit.

You're probably fine though. The Eclipse was a mid-high level guitar, right? Not some $250 thing? If it was fake you'd almost certainly be able to tell -- shitty inlays/binding, no-name pickups, etc.

Moved into a new house this summer, which meant getting some old equipment out of my parents' house. I almost forgot about this one. I know it's a Westone XA1330, but don't know too much else (other than it always sounded surprisingly good). I bought this thing for $100 when I was 13, and have had an affinity for cheap guitars and Japanese copies ever since. I know you folks mostly talk about all your fancy, high-end gear, so I figured I should drag the conversation down into the basement 8)

Those aren't great deals, but just shopping, but hey, worth a shot.
