    Which do you prefer for blues

    Would you say that the 335 has a broader sonic palate compared with a Les Paul ? I dont know what you guys think but I tend to think that it does, as the LPs maple top tends to focus and emphasise certain midrange frequencies and harmonics that make the LP model a legend, but not for its huge...

    Which do you prefer for blues

    Does the Varitone circuitry fitted to ES345 and ES355s add much in the way of weight ?

    How do the new True Historic parts and plastics compare to reproductions from other companies?

    I have a sheet of Nylon 6/6 I bought to offer an alternative to other nut materials, and while its low friction it is rather soft, and Im suprised but pleased that those playing Les Pauls are satisfied with the sustain and clarity of open notes. I have heared that Nylon 6/4 is harder and closer...

    Where did my thread "Whos using Virgil Arlo" go ?

    Guitarists like details, clear and transparent.. Facts that can be independently verified, demonstrable and repeatable. The purpose behind my Virgil A, and in particular the Tone S thread was to bring those using these humbuckers together with those curious but cautious about them in a non...

    Where did my thread "Whos using Virgil Arlo" go ?

    The Virgil Arlo thread was (in my opinion) an entirely healthy attempt on my part to bring together those already using these popular PAF style humbuckers, with those curious to learn more about them (myself included). The content, to the best of my recollection was good natured, courteous...

    Where did my 'Whose using Tone Specific' thread go ?

    Yes, Bobby Mahogany. Perhaps I should have said 'free of GRIEVOUS and OFFENSIVE grammatical error' ? Would this put me back in your good books? BTW thanks for your good humour, your highlighting my error's after stating that I was free of grammatical error made me laugh out loud..

    Where did my 'Whose using Tone Specific' thread go ?

    Yes my friend, I can't count the forums from which I've been banned for the error of stating "with who Ive jammed with"..When its clear to all that It's "with WHOM Ive jammed with"... I live with the shame but with group therapy Im now six months clean and free of grammatical error..

    Average Weight of The Les Pauls on This Forum

    Could you give us a detailed tone description please? A Les Paul at this weight should have some unique tone and feel characteristics that set it apart from the 'herd' so to speak, Id love to know more if your okay with this..

    New Crowther "Hot Cake" 2020

    The Hot Cake has been a favourite of mine for many yrs now. I went with the newly introduced 'bluesberry' version due to its slightly smoother 'bluesy' overdrive. BTW the video above is an excellent representation of this pedals character. I could take you through how this pedal interacts with...

    Average Weight of The Les Pauls on This Forum

    With the choice of a guitar that sounds great but lacks something in the feel department, Id always go with the guitar that feels great , even if the weight is a little higher, a guitar that feels good is a guitar that works with you, expressing your emotions.

    Average Weight of The Les Pauls on This Forum

    Its becoming clear from the stats that 1950s Les Pauls in this weight range are the norm, not the exeption. My own Les Pauls fall within this range. I dont know how you feel about this but, as much as I love the book BOTB the fact is that it covers just 2.5 yrs, from mid 1958 - 1960. Within...

    Do you think I would lose my shirt if I bet on your Strat having a balanced, full toned sustaining personality ?

    Average Weight of The Les Pauls on This Forum

    Luthier Daniel Slaman makes a solid body Les Paul style guitar and achieves the lightweight by using Cedar for the body, something that Gibson used on a very rare handful of occasions during 1952 and perhaps in 1953. (check him out folks.) Last yr I built a Strat style guitar using a similarly...

    Plexi Marshall's... where do I start?

    Those old JTM45s have a tone familiar to all classic Marshall amps, but those KT66 and the GZ34 rectification give them a dynamic response no other Marshall has. Im also wondering if the open back cab is part of the magic your loving so much in this epic demo ? Great thread btw..
