    Thanks to all for the nice comments!

    Here's a little more about the guitar. It came from the son of the original owner, who put the "S" sticker on the TRC (I think it is his last initial). I considered removing it, but actually kind of like it as part of the guitar's history. It's just a little over 7 lbs for those that are interested in that sort of thing. It has a single black beauty cap in the circuit and like I mentioned, is a rocker. :)

    I just ordered a new dynamic mic (Sennheiser e906) last night, so hopefully I can get around to posting a video next week. If all else fails, I can just hit record on my cell phone while I'm playing it and stop trying to be all professional about it. :laugh2:

    Thanks again to everyone for the comments. For those that are still listening :) I finally got around to making a little video with some sound samples last night.

    The first few minutes are the '60 Junior. A member here was asking about the sound of my '64 SG Junior, so I give it a whirl starting at around 4:50. Once I did that, I decided to see for myself how that compared to my '57 Special and '65 Junior. After I did that, I decided to just include all my P-90 Gibsons and finished with the '54 Goldtop. :laugh2:

    It's mostly just noodling and I tried to play similar types of things for each.

    Despite the pedal board, I'm just running into an Analogman King of Tone, a TC Hall of Fame Mini using the SimoVerb tone print, and a Marshall Astoria Classic combo for this video. For the first two guitars, I switched back and forth between the high gain and standard sides of the KoT, but left it on the high gain for the other guitars.

    Enjoy!



    EDIT: Wow, youtube didn't do nice things to the audio of this. :( Sorry for the clipping, but I think you can still get the idea. Maybe.

    Haha, no, more of a "well, I've gone this far, I might as well do the rest of them."
