    How useful is a Strat? Do I need one?

    Like @TV the Wired Turtle I have Jazz Swings on one of the Strats and Jazz Bebops on the other from TI. They both sound fantastic! 12s on both.

    How useful is a Strat? Do I need one?

    I love Strats, more than Gretsch for comfort, and unlike most, I do not have a tele. I have two Strats one is the Aerodyne with a very thin fast neck and modded with the first-gen hot noiseless pups. Great sounding pups and plenty of growl when I need it and a 60th Anniversary MIM Strat, it has...

    Help, my tone is horrible. Not really a Gretsch question, But I am using a Gretsch.

    I’m surprised how sometimes a clean track will be a completely different setup than an OD track. I started and figured that what works for one works for all, which simply is not the case. Like others said I’ll use headphones and monitors to playback bits and adjust for each if I want to record...

    Any love for the Peavey Classic 20

    Im a huge Peavey fan, got my first Tube amp because someone bought a Peavey Triple XXX Super Forty and brought it back saying they couldn’t get a good tone out of it. They didn’t realize it had mostly active eq. So on the combined crunch ultra channels you start with the eq at noon not ten or...

    Soul Chocolate? the nocturne Fuzzray gets brown

    Looks great but nothing beat my 2 red FuzzRay! They must be good its the only pedal I have two of! Well, less you count a Jr Barnyard and and El Pescadoro as mostly the same then it also is worth having both!

    Dead sounding E string and intonation off on first 3 frets

    Strings first, nut height second and at that time make sure the nut isn’t back cut.

    WoodIdentifierExpertPersons Needed: Ebony or Dark Rosewood?

    I actually hate fret markers on the board side markers are ok but rarely use them and find my instruments, guitar and mandolin, not facing upward enough to see the board but when it is hanging or on a stand I look at it and then it matters to me. I’m sure there are just as many who can’t...

    Aclam Dr Robert

    I do like the sound of that classic amp the pedal doesn’t sound exactly tubey to me but it is nice in its own way. I’m in no position to chase one now. After I pay off a new roof loan then I can get a bit more gear serious but can’t stop a person from dreaming! I think I will try and see how...

    N.A.D

    Dialing back the heavy channels is what I do with my triple xxx, I even put a lower gain tube in it and it really tames the thrid highest channel. The mark series make that much easier to accomplish!

    I know a man out here who has switched to Rainsong and it really sounds good. Someone will get a good deal for this especially with the tonewood amp. I love mine.

    I’ve always had one bad eye and one really good eye to the point my right eye wasn’t 20/20 it was 20/05 near and far but my left for years was unable to read the big E on the chart and even when young it was just able to slightly see light and dark. Now my right eye picks ipa. Lot of slack and...

    NWSD day

    Very Nice! love the wolf head! Perhaps your a modern Lycan? ;) Later this year I hit 57. I sometimes wonder how I made it this long with the body of a 30 year old athlete. Sadly God decided that this year I would age 27 all at once, at least that is how it feels! This isn’t as fancy but more my...

    WoodIdentifierExpertPersons Needed: Ebony or Dark Rosewood?

    Let it fade and wait and see. Dyed rosewood will eventually shown better as it fades. I have never understood why someone or company would dye their rosewood it is a beautiful wood in its own right but then again I can’t understand why someone would dye ebony either! Black on a board is so boring!

    I'm not a purist so.. Am I just getting old?

    Funny thing, I never even considered a Gretsch guitar. I was sitting with my daughter and we were looking at green guitars, preferably a Strat, I love Strats, but stumbled ona. Broadway Jade Penguin. My daughter loves it and I considered it a sign. My daughters name is Jade. Hahahah turns out I...

    I'm not a purist so.. Am I just getting old?

    I don't even know what a 335 is but I do know a Panther and would have one if I could. But to me its all Gretsch. Good Bigsby, Good bridge, Good headstock, Good pups, all seems right to me.
