Hello new guy!

Actually never thought of using Patreon for this place. Thanks for the suggestion.

I've managed to reduce the expenses so things are a lot easier to handle.

Just bought you a drink!  Thank you for this site.

Thank you for your donation. It helps keep this place running. Ads aren't bringing in much since almost everyone has ad blockers now.

I just joined. I sure hope this place doesn’t go all social media as Facebook is definitely NOT for me.
If you're having one of those days where everyone is on your case and is just getting on your nerves, it's probably not everyone else

Just tossed $20 your way.  I appreciate you keeping it going!

It doesn't see as much use as it should, but it's an incredible resource that I think too many people take for granted!

Duncan pickups just more popular. It seems like they care more about promotion than DiMarzio. So there are more Duncan users and that is why their forum is more active.

People like to say that Duncan is more popular, but DiMarzio makes all the OEM guitar pickups for Ibanez and Ernie Ball. Unless it’s a model with Duncan or DiMarzio branded pickups, they are made by DiMarzio. I know this because I worked there for a while. It’s not a very big company. They probably get all the orders they can handle.

To the person running this forum. Please update your Tapatalk plugins. It’s broken. Lots of traffic would come via Tapatalk.

So, just read this thread.  Interesting situation.

I'll think about this for a moment.
- Facebook is a BAD solution.  yeah, it's fast, easy and free....but it has a really dark side to it.
- Patreon is interesting.

I have to ask - what is the deal w/ DiMarzio??? 

Buddy - we should talk...

I'm working on that. Currently in the process of overhauling the server with a fresh build of everything. This place has been using more or less the same code base with mostly security updates since it started over a decade ago. Just gotta make time for everything. Sadly outside of the occasional $$ that gets tossed my way, everything comes out of my own pocket but rest assured about Tapatalk.

Actually.. let me see if I can get it the new plug-in working properly with how things are right now.

You know, I keep forgetting about Patreon. I'll have to look into that.

As for DiMarzio, they know this place exists and if they're interested in taking this place over, they can flat out have it. I just keep this place running out of pocket because I love the products and love having a place to virtually hang out with like minded folks.
