I've got the HR100+ and it's sounds so close to my SLO that i've decided i will not sell it. I had Bill Sundt recap it , put SLO knobs on it and removed the fixed XL mod . The original SLO and HR amps did'nt have XL mods or depth mods on them , Mike stated the original amp designs did'nt have...
Because when you plunk down over $4000.00 for a Historic guitar , it better damn well have the solid rosewood or Ebony board.
Your paying for Gibsons best built guitars that they produce in their custom shop .
Save the plywood fingerboards for the lower line guitars that cost a 1/3 of the price.
Well there you go , you don't care .
You might as well buy a Balsa Wood LP with countertop fretboard material and play it through a First Act amp.
And that's my exact point , they would'nt sound the same because they are not built the same.
How about the same player playing multpile chambered and solid LP's being recorded on the same setup on multple tracks and listening back.
Then have multiple people listen to the tracks and then You Can Hear It.
It works , been there and done that.
I never bragged about magic ears.
I simply stated I can hear the difference between the two and i don't believe it's a fair comparison between an Acoustic and Electrified instrument , period.
No test over the internet is going to convince me like standing in a recording studio with...
And that's why your still trying to compare apples to oranges.
What matters is when you plug into that electric guitar and get different sounds ELECTRIFIED.
That gutted out guitar body sounds totally different ELECTRIFIED than a solid thick piece of wood .
One does'nt buy an electric guitar...
I don''t give a damn about the violin comparison.
An electric guitar is not the same kind of instrument as a violin and is completely built differently.
In the studio using the same amp,speakers,mic and so on , I can hear the difference between a chambered guitar and a solid guitar body...
I ask what differences are between the violins ?
A Gibson electric guitar is a total different ball game than a violin. So how can you even compare the two ? Again your comparing apples to oranges.
And i have compared muliple guitars that are chambered verses the solid in the studio with...
But were all the violins built exactly the same way ?
A Gibson chambered guitar body with most of it's wood removed is not the same as a solid body guitar with all the wood left in the body.
So that article don't do crap for me because your comparing apples to oranges.
And if your referring to my Historic Custom , your Damn Straight i care about what the fingerboard looks like and what it's made of .
When you shell out $4000.00 + for a Gibson Historic Custom it better have the correct fretboard material and looks does come into play at that price for any high...
