|G7th Performance Capo|
The G7th Performance Capo brings a new approach to capo design. Using a patented wrap-spring clutch mechanism, it allows adjustment in small increments, allowing precise control over how tightly the strings are pressed down. It can be easily adjusted with one hand and features a sleek, modern design.
|BGF Tune-o-matic Conversion Post|
Among the greatest guitar tones ever recorded, all had one thing in common: the ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge. The BGF Tune-o-matic Conversion Post allows you to use an ABR or AVR2 TonePros bridge on a guitar that has the spacing and bushings previously installed for a Nashville bridge. There is no need to extract the bushings, avoiding the risk of damaging the top and having a cosmetic visual plug showings.
|Dean 30th Anniversary ML Guitar|
Dean is celebrating its 30th year of guitar building by releasing the vaultworthy ML electric. 100 pieces will be produced and hand-signed by the creator, Dean B. Zelinsky. Featuring a rare 5A redwood top and a transparent black finish, the ML also has a solid mahogany body and neck, and is accented by white binding from head to toe. Black filigree engraved satin nickel hardware sets these guitars off as real collector’s pieces. Cooler still, owners will also receive an 8” x 10” granite tablet with laser etching certifying the model.

With either a right angle ¼” phone plug or a straight ¼” phone plug and one foot of cable, the Siren II features IGL copper conductors to provide extended midrange frequencies without glare or etching. Solid core conductors preserve clarity and focus, while open-core design increases space between conductors to reduce magnetic interaction.
|Seymour Duncan SFX-06 Paranormal Bass EQ Direct Box|
Seymour Duncan Basslines’ SFX-06 Paranormal Bass EQ Direct Box sports a balanced line out XLR jack with ground lift so you can feed a front-of-house mixing board or a recording console with no loss of signal. There are also three bands of active EQ specifically optimized for bass, with up to 12dB of boost or cut on each band. The SFX-06 also features a proprietary Slap Contour switch, which applies an additional preset EQ curve to whatever settings you’ve chosen with the 3-band EQ, perfect for slap playing.
|DiPinto Galaxie 4 Los Straitjackets Guitar|
The Galaxie 4 Los Straitjackets guitar is the ultimate combination of modern technology and vintage aesthetics, hailing from a time when headstocks were huge, bodies were wild and designers weren’t stingy with their pickups and knobs. Four single coils are connected to four on/off rocker switches, allowing players to get any combination of pickups imaginable. Featuring a surf-style tremolo coupled with a roller bridge, the Galaxie’s 25 ½” scale gives it a solid feel while a solid mahogany body gives it a warm but snappy tone.
|Raw Vintage Pure Steel Saddles|
Many modern replacement saddles use copper under nickel plating and have inconsistent hardness, changing your tone. Designed for vintage players, Raw Vintage pure steel saddles reproduce the exact metal structure of vintage ‘50s steel saddles. These are perfect for the vintage or relic owner, and are available in Fender USA or Gotoh Japan sizes.
MSRP $75 per set

Created in collaboration with legendary guitarist George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob fame, the Mr.Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage and an onboard Deep control, which together are designed to enable an amp to have increased sustain while still retaining note definition and dynamics.
LegendaryTones, LLC today announced production availability of its new Mr. Scary Mod, a 100% pure tube module designed to instantly and easily expand the capabilities of many classic amplifiers with additional gain and tone shaping. Created in collaboration with legendary guitarist George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob fame, the Mr.Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage and an onboard Deep control, which together are designed to enable an amp to have increased sustain while still retaining note definition and dynamics.
Originally released as the Lynch Mod in February 2021, the updated Mr. Scary Mod features the same core circuit as the Lynch Mod but is now equipped with a revised tube mix combo per George’s preference as well as a facelift in a newly redesigned electro-galvanized steel enclosure. As with the Lynch Mod, each run will be limited and the first run in Pumpkin Orange with Black hardware is limited to just 150 pieces worldwide.
The Mr. Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage on top of the cathode follower position, keeping note definition and articulation while further increasing sustain. Each Mr. Scary mod is meticulously built by hand in the USA, one at a time, and tuned using high-grade components. Equipped with a single ECC81 (12AT7) in the first position and ECC83 (12AX7) in the second, the Mr. Scary Mod can clean up beautifully when rolling down your guitar’s volume, and still adds scorching gain when you roll it back up. This is a gain stage that’s been tuned and approved by the ears of the maestro George Lynch himself.
“The Mr. Scary Mod excels with dynamics and is incredibly touch-responsive, allowing me to shift from playing clear, lightly compressed cleans to full-out aggressive sustain and distortion –and control it all simply by varying my guitar’s volume control and picking,” said GeorgeLynch. “In many ways, it’s an old-school approach, but it’s also so much more natural and expressive in addition to being musically fulfilling when you can play both the guitar and amp dynamically together this way.”
The Mr. Scary Mod installs in minutes, is safe and effective to use, and requires no special tools or re-biasing of the amplifier. Simply insert the module into the cathode follower preamp position of compatible amplifiers (includes Marshall 2203/2204/1959/1987 circuits) and
immediately get the benefit of enjoying a hot-rodded amp that delivers all the pure harmonic character that comes with an added pure tube gain stage. The handmade in the USA Mr. Scary Mod is now available to order for $319.

October Audio has miniaturized their NVMBR Gain pedal to create two mini versions of this beautifully organic-sounding circuit – including an always-on gain device.
The NVMBR Gain is a nonlinear amp that transitions gracefully from clean boost to overdriven tones. Volume increases from just over unity to about 10db before soft-clipping drive appears for another 5db of boost. Its extraordinary ease of use is matched by outstanding versatility: you can use it as a clean boost, push a stubborn amp into overdrive or create a just-breaking-up sound at any amp volume.
October Audio’s new family of mini NVMBR Gain pedals includes a switchable version that allows you to bypass the effect: one option features brand logo pedal graphics, while the other sports a fun “Witch Finger” graphic with a Davies knob as the“fingernail”.
The second version in the new lineup is an always-on device featuring the Witch Finger graphic and Davies knob, with the same NVMBR Gain circuit that lies at the core of the switchable version.
- Knob controls gain and clipping simultaneously
- Stunning silver hammertone finish
- Switchable versions are true-bypass, available with classic or witch finger graphics
- Authentic Davies knobs, including the “fingernail”
- 9V center negative power supply required
- Dimensions: 3.63 x 1.50 x 1.88 in
Witch Finger (always on NVMBR Gain) demo
All October Audio pedals are assembled in Richmond, VA, and available for purchase directly through the online shop. Street price is $109 for NVMBR Gain footswitch versions and $89 for the always-on device.
