    1998 Epiphone Dot Deluxe

    Forgive me for actively trying to get some discussion happening here. I still love this guitar. I’ve come to realize that the neck is fat and fairly wide.

    NAD Fender '65 Princeton Reverb in Tweed

    Yup, the modern Fender reissue amps are impressive and sound killer (based on the three I’ve played). Congrats. A 12 in speaker in a Princeton must be amazing.

    That looks exactly like the rig I’d make for myself. Awesome!

    Epiphone CTS pots...any reason to change them?
