    Thank you for posting this. For the life of me I could not figure out how to properly imbed a Youtube video here. FYI this video is in 1080p HD if you have the bandwidth to stream at full resolution. That said it will play at lower resolutions too. Thanks again! GK

    Cool Sg and very nice playing!

    Embedding is easy. Just copy and paste the link from your browser. You'll notice it starts with https:// . When you just remove the 's', so the link starts with http://, it will embed itself. Easiest thing ever :thumb:

    Sounds great. The tremolo looks like it is pretty usable. Just need to get my '61 going so we can post dueling guitars. :wow:

    The embedded link stopped working for some reason on my PC, but still works on my MAC.
    So, in case others need another option the video should play here no matter what> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O05EM1JVSxM

    Figured it out. You MUST have flash player installed for the embedded videos to work on this particular forum. Videos however will play on the Youtube site, even without a flash player installed. It may be browser dependent, who knows. Computers!

    Thanks folks for the comments on the video!

    I just uploaded this follow up video, again with the "Ebony Block" Les Paul SG. This time it's into a slightly later era Trainwreck Express from 1989. I played some slide in standard tuning, and some basic cleans on BOTH pickups. I'm surprised at how well these original unpotted PAFs tolerate a fairly gainy amp at close range, with barely any microphonic issues. Seems many new PAF clones are a bit more problematic in this department. Anyway, I played the bridge pickup here with the tone rolled back a hair to fatten it up, then went to the neck pickup wide open. The 50s wiring in these guitars also does a neat trick quite applicable to the cleans. When you have the volumes down a little, the tone controls then also slightly roll the mids back at mid rotation before going full dark when turned off. Point is, you can scoop the mids to get some nice more Fender like cleans even on a mid heavy amp like a wreck. GK

    Wow. I really like that one, especially the rolled down clean-(ish) tones at the beginning. :applause:

    I am not a huge fan of slide guitar, but I really liked that.

    Then again, I am an SG guy at heart. :)

    Perhaps a little operator error. I backed the bridge pickup tone off to about 1/2, then switched to the neck full up. Darker sounding mic to record it too, but some people find wrecks too bright and gainy so I was kinda going the opposite way this time.

    Very nice Glenn!

    I got a JM incoming. A little hotter plt voltage then yours at lw 400? I think yours is in the mid 300 vltg range. :hmm:

    Running into a 'Kenny Rig' 4-12 Prerola 014 loaded vintage V4 cab.

    Love the feel of these demos, brother!

    Congrats on picking up the new JM build. Thank you for the kind comments!

    My '85 has just about the same plate voltage as my '89, both in the 410-420v range depending on the wall voltage. After this video was filmed I found a nice set of old XF1 Mullard EL34s for this amp, and they make me want to redo the video! Alas I'm set for the next one.
