    The big 4 collection.

    I have always heard that a Tele is one of the hardest guitars to play well - but if you can do that, it will yield results unmatched by later, lesser iterations of the form. But I can't swear to that, as I started on a '66 Tele, and they just feel like home to me.

    The big 4 collection.

    1. Fender 2. Fender 3. Rivera-designed Fender, and, for variety, 4. Rivera Honorable mention to Kustom. Though I will admit, a friend has some Quilter stuff & a Blackstar Fly 3, and I am most impressed with both (yeah, that's right - the Blackstar is battery-operated, solid-state, DSP, 3 watt...

    The big 4 collection.

    Is it lighting and/or camera angle, or is that a 2-piece neck with an asymmetrical V shape?

    Is a ‘67 Les Paul possible?

    335s have single binding.

    The big 4 collection.

    Beautiful color! And that was the originally intended purpose of the LP, after all.

    The big 4 collection.

    A fine list - but for me, the Ric wouldn't stand a chance against a Fender Electric XII, Epiphone Riviera 12, or Alembic Series I or II 12.

    The big 4 collection.

    Convince Her on those 4? Naw - I'm too busy trying to convince Her that I need 1 each HB, P-90, & F-style-single solids, semi - hollow, electric 12, jazz box, electric sitar, electric bass, large-, medium-, and small-body 6-string flat-tops, acoustic 12, classical, biscuit, spider, & tri-cone...

    Custom Shop 355..... should I keep it?

    When introduced In 1959 (when, I think we can all agree, the quality was a tad higher), a new ES-355-TD cost (wait for it...) $355 - and it wasn't factory-damaged. Adjusted to 2022 currency, that would be $3635.54. That's all I have to say on the matter.........

    Brazilian Boards

    I am a trained and experienced audio engineer & a half-century + guitar geek; I assure you, I can tell the differences that are there (I can, in fact, hear the difference between BRW & IRW in an acoustic body; I'd be surprised if you can, as very few can). The fact remains, variety of rosewood...

    Smart-ass, yes (one of my many endearing qualities); sarcastic, not all - just an inveterate wise-acre's way of making a 100% valid point.

    Flying V wiring help

    huh - might be, but I've never seen a tone cap that small.

    Brazilian Boards

    Neither know nor care (see my post directly above).

    Brazilian Boards

    While they may feel different, there is no tonal difference between ebony, rosewood, and maple fretboards; between Indian & Brazilian? It is to laugh. I have said it before, and it looks I may keep saying it forever: It takes a naturally good and quite experienced ear to tell the difference...

    Making My Les Paul Lighter

    This is not a bad idea. I am not at home on my own computator, so I can't find the bookmark right now, but a guy I know from one of the other fora I frequent was putting out a waist-and-both-shoulders harness for those with back trouble; if I remember Tuesday when I'm home, I'll post the link.
