    From what the modeling peeps say, I think you will really dig a Helix. I thought what you had sounded pretty darn good too.

    I'm glad it came across so well in the recording too!

    I'm still tweaking it a little, but it DOES sound better than my old XT PRO that I've had for years.

    Thanks again for the kind reviews!:cheers:

    Very cool thread, Darrell! I really enjoyed reading through and seeing the work you did. It came out very well. I haven't been able to listen to that full session yet, but I really like what I heard. Very nice sounds coming from your guitar and your playing!

    Thank you , kind sir! :h5:

    My first brave attempt at sharing my music anywhere EVER outside of the live audience we are playing to at the time.... I was very nervous!!! :Ohno::Ohno:

    I can blame @Freddy G for his enthusiastic request that I post it from the beginning.

    @frankv and @grumphh gave me the words of encouragement I needed to finally put me over the edge of my doubts to post it!

    Kudos to both and the others who echoed their opinions! :cheers:

    Update:

    Recently put a 1982 Shaw humbucker in the neck and took out the Rio Grande Texas.

    The toanz are sublime and heavenly!

    I sent the Shaws from my 82 Lester out to Dave at Sigil pickups for some new poly wire after some fool in the past potted mine!

    Fresh back from the rewind!

    Installed.
