    Tell me about 5129's with the big F holes...

    Cool. That Jet of yours really is a special run in my opinion. I know I don't need any new guitars but would pull the trigger for a used model if the price was right. I agree.....the current models really aren't a true reissue as the pickups are different and completely chambered.

    Tell me about 5129's with the big F holes...

    The late '90s Sparkle Jets were solid...not weight relieved and the Filtertrons were ceramic magnets. I've been seeking one 2 years now but they are rare. @Sid Nitzerglobin has one and remember him saying that it was over 10 lbs. To compare it to a 512x? 2 different guitars but sounds you...

    The One Pedal Gig

    I have to say that plate has become my favorite reverb selection and I can definitely see a bit of delay doing the job also. Nice going!

    Feel’n sad today, play’n the Blues all day….

    I am sorry for your loss and always love this song for remembering those we care about. "... The day is necessary, Every now and then For souls to move on, Given life back again"

    After playing 30+ years, my first Tube Screamer (clone)

    Nice input/breakdown on the how the majority of tone is shaped from Strats and then comparison to the Tele. It makes complete sense and why I only use neck and neck/mid positions on a Strat. I want that "fullness". My newly acquire American Pro II is warmer and do like the humbucker in the...

    NGD (Tony Sims to blame!)

    These do produce some really nice tone....Congrats!!

    After playing 30+ years, my first Tube Screamer (clone)

    I definitely can see that. It's funny how my comment kind of "dissed" the mids, but after dialing the mids on my new Revival Drive by Origin Effects and reading your comment, I now really hear what good quality mids can bring to a all 5 positions too!

    New recording….”Will The Circle Be Unbroken”!

    Wow Tony. If your version had been the original, I'm not too sure if anyone would've dared a cover. I'll spare the commentary as everything in your version is perfect....perfect and still raw! Your voice just raises this song to an incredible height. Maybe Chris Isaak could come close to as...

    G6527t-P90 question

    My Black Phoenix does it a bit but didn't really think about it when I got it back in '09. I didn't take real note of it until I got my 2nd Gretsch in 2012....a used but mint condition '08 5126 Electromatic that had a really "tight" switch vs. a bit of wiggle in the Black Phoenix. It's never...

    NPD - Origin Effects rules them all

    I hear you on that......I call it Oceans 12 syndrome. I liked that pedal a lot but didn't make my final list of 3 when looking at reverb units because everything was too small and too close together. This pedal is a beast and larger than the image I posted. Everything is very easy to get to...

    Good to have you here @TMcGee and welcome aboard!

    After playing 30+ years, my first Tube Screamer (clone)

    Agreed with your input except for the Strat. My opinion is subjective but I own many Strats and all with different levels of output. The results are different but I just feel the dimension of tone I love with a Strat in the neck(full and throaty) and neck + middle (juicy & glassy) positions...

    After playing 30+ years, my first Tube Screamer (clone)

    I also agree and feel there was a bit of time that it was too prevalent in Stevie Ray's tone. I really like the "Blue Note" by J. Rockett and is very close to BD-2 area. I need these paired with something else though like a Dumble clean-inspired type of pedal like the Vertex SSS of Gladio SC...

    NPD - Origin Effects rules them all

    I've been playing with it for the past few hours and there is so much tone-shaping available. I've heard that many buy one thinking it will be the "ultimate overdrive/distortion" tool but I'm loving how clean tones are shaped differently, the added dimension of the ghost note brings. Tons of...

    Finally glad to be here . . .

    Welcome! The GDP is great but equally love it here....this place is great!

    NPD - Origin Effects rules them all

    Nice! Their compressors are the platinum grade in my opinion and was torn when I got the Keeley Aria...2-in-1 overdrive/compressor pedal. The Keeley is good but like the new Carl Martin and the one you have best of all.

    NPD - Origin Effects rules them all

    Ok, the thread title is a bit too dramatic as I was going for a "Lord Of The Rings" vibe. Revival Drive by Origin Effects This thing is great and was on my bucket list since last summer. I played my friend's Revival Drive and was blown away. I didn't want to believe it but this box is the...

    Gretsch Pages down?

    @General_Lee -- G5422T is one of those great fellow players who cares about another guitarist "getting it right" and also one of those rare dudes who doesn't settle for a neck if it doesn't feel spot on. Also preferring a thicker profile and wider at the nut, his message to me was not to...

    Gretsch Pages down?

    I'll always think of the GDP as home base, but the really cool thing is that Gretsch-Talk has become another home.....I knew it would be good Thunder58 ensured it was years ago, and in the past 18 months of really frequenting the site I know I love this place. The moderators? @thunder58 &...

    I just cannot commit to a pedal board. I have 12 pedals (not including a TCE looper and Digitech Trio) and really only engage 3 at a time at most. Most times it is just 1 pedal on because I'm usually dialed in to a very specific tone for home practice. I bring more and chain them when...

    NAD - Supro Delta King 10

    Congrats. I was looking at your's and the 12 for a few days as the the price point is great and my friend has one and loves it. I've decided not to get it and wait as I usually go with the idea of comparing my feeling towards it a few months from now vs. what would be...
