Looks fantastic! A nice finishing touch on a beautiful guitar.
it is a great guitar and I love the tribute, I was fortunate enough to be in my early twenties when the original punk new wave thing was going on.
Played in the punk clubs in NE Ohio, hung out with Alan from Devo jammed with him frequently while the their rise to fame was in it's infancy, opened for Stiv and the boys, Klaus and his bizarre opera thing, Chrisie and are are high school alum though she is a many years ahead of me.
Now soon to be 62 it seems only yesterday and of coarse decades ago(4 of them +/-) this was the period when raw was very much the genre what a fun time
Sorry to derail the subject, but it is true this was a time when rock n roll was dirty and dangerous as it should be.
Your axe is a fine tribute to a sound and attitude that still resonates with many today
thanks for sharing
Your B3 is what really makes the model!
You didn’t derail nothing!
Thanx for sharing!
You have any recordings from those days?
Back when Rock n’ Roll was still dangerous?
Great work on that, Caleb!
Stay Hungry too
Glad it went to a good home!
Fantastic attention to detail, there's things I hadn't noticed about Ivy's 6120
As a side note, I got obsessed with knowing which amp Ivy had used on the majority of the Cramps recordings. Yeah yeah yeah, a Pro Reverb live and a valco in the studio... but what model?
Well, really it’s the Ray Butts Filtertrons and the B3 that make it as close to her 58 as a 1995 6120-60 can get I suppose.
She didn’t have a STAY SICK! truss cover, but I thought it would be cool.
She didn’t have an aluminum tru-arc, sperzel lockers, or a zero-fret either.
Here’s the 6120PI in action.
Nice truss rod cover ( that's why I dig this guy folks )
Sounds great! Nice dirty vocals too, how they recorded? Such a cool song and a great way to represent the 6120/ filtertron sound
I dig you too, dog catcher!
I recorded it in my practice room at home with Reaper on my laptop. I’m just starting to dip my toes into the swamp of digital recording.
I recorded the drums with one mic and added reverb after.
I played the 6120 into my Mystery Brain thru my Tone Master Deluxe Reverb using the XLR output into the interface. No EQ or FX added after.
The “bass” is the same guitar but thru my BOSS OC-3 octave pedal.
The vocals are just me howling into the mic straight into the interface and I added some slap and verb afterward.
I really don’t know what the hell I’m doing, but it’s fun figuring it out.
you're figuring it our fast Caleb.
Your recordings are already x200 better quality
Oh man, good times watching Svengoolie movies in my under-employed early 20s!
i miss sammy terry.
That is the coolest!
