    ...because during this down time, why not? ;D

    Since this covers a lot of topics, I hope it's OK to create this post here.

    I moved the amps together as I'll be working on some YouTube demos in the very near future. There is a NAD among the amps (stay tuned). The empty hanger is for one of my Mustangs that is being worked on by my guitar tech.

    What does your home office/studio/mancave look like? What have you been doing during the social distancing downtime?

    Nice collection and layout. It seems like you can spend many happy hours in there.

    Noticeably absent of any Gibsons. Just an observation, carry on, fellow fan of Fender & Gretsch.

    I like those new Fender pedals, have been thinking about the (stereo) Tre-Verb, or the soon to be released (mono) MTG Tube Tremolo.

    On your Fenders, which fretboard do you prefer? Maple or Rosewood? Tough question, I know, it depends on what you are playing, right?

    Thanks, guys. I have had a few Gibsons that have come and gone. I lusted after a Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute for years and finally got one...I ended up moving it along as I guess it was the scale length of the guitar that didn't work for me. I have been gassing for a Gibson Les Paul Special (or Epiphone version) lately, and I may go for the Epi. However, what's holding me back at this point is I have my Gretsch CVT that I put TV Jones T-90s in it, so I don't really neeeed the Epi (but still want one, lol).

    I like the Fender pedals and they have replaced many great pedals that I highly regard (Fulltone OCD, MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay, Fulltone Octafuzz) but I like the functionality and sounds I get from the Fender pedals. I have so many reverb units that I don't even use my reverb pedals (Fender Marine LayerReverb, Boss FRV-1 '63 Fender Reverb), but I love the idea of the Tre-Verb, so I may end up hunting one down one day as a backup reverb/trem if needed. I don't know much about the MTG Tube Tremolo but it sounds intriguing!

    I prefer the maple fretboards for my Telecasters (but I still love my rosewood baseball bat neck Tele, too) and like both maple and rosewood fretboards for my Strats. I definitely prefer rosewood for my offsets (Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Mustang) for my surf music needs. I'm Surfysonic on YouTube (surf and alternative play-alongs, guitar gear demos, and pc/PS4 gaming). I'm planning on demoing guitar gear to a greater extent this year.
