Disclaimer…this video is intended for amusement only…i COMPLETELY understand that any gear comparison demo done with an iphone microphone is a ridiculous waste of time….no user serviceable parts inside….if swallowed, get medical help immediately or contact a poison control center…objects in the rear view may be larger than they appear.

Unrelated….just WAIT until you guys see how cool the two new Plexi Soul shirts are that our resident genius Ryan Conover designed….Ryan is responsible for all the previous HS t shirt designs (except the very first one which was designed by my dear friend Eric Crilli)….i think you guys are gonna dig it the most

Hey guys….thanks for watching the show. Check out for uncle larry merch…plexi soul cd’s and t shirts on the way.

Uncle larry’s garage sale…email me at if you are interested in any of this shit.

1) absolutely primo 1946 gibson j-45 neck only….AMAZING condition and original finish ….1500 firm…this could be a life changer for the right person/repairman out there

2) 1964 fender vibroverb 1x15 combo amp. As you know this model is BY FAR the most coveted of the entire blackface line by collectors…basically just a pro reverb with a 15” speaker, for twice the money. 4500 firm and i WILL NOT SHIP…you gotta come to larry’s house to get this if you want it. 7/10 cosmetic condition…has definitely been played and gigged. All original trannies and speaker…serviced by Ebo…sounds absolutely lovely

3) 1959 watkins westminster…small and EXTREMELY stylish little british tube combo amp….sounds good but could sound GREAT with a bit of tweaking and TLC….Sold as is for 1300 firm and I WILL NOT SHIP. Nice sounding tremolo circuit
