I know, I know...

My band has been playing some heavier stuff. We used to do more jams and riffs in the way of Dinosaur Jr, so my Strats and Teles could hang just fine. Well, the sound's changed as the other guitarist and I have become better together, so they weren't cutting it for the sound. Neither was my Fender Concert II Rivera. So I traded off my G&L Tribute, picked up a Valveking 100, and got a good deal on the JP50. The heavy Les Pauls are the guitars of choice for Baroness, Pelican, Mastodon, and those kind of bands we're emulating.

The initial plan was to use the JP50 as a backup, but that changed after the string change and setup. They accidentally made these really, really, really good. It just happened to work out that all my solos are on the regular tuned songs, and the other guitarist happens to have solos on the drop-tuned songs, so the Paul will be the chugga chugga guitar and the JP will be the widdly widdly.

I ordered a Seymour Duncan P-Rail for the neck and a Seymour Duncan Pegasus for the bridge of the JP. The pickups are too fizzy, need something with more warmth. I also think it'd be funny to make the JP fanboys squirm with SD's intruding on Dimarzio territory. The EMG 81/85 are a combo that everyone knows, you all know how they sound.

Don't worry, still got my Bob Logan Esquire, I haven't abandoned my morals

The satin neck is a really nice touch on the Prophecy. I never get along with LP necks too well, but this one snagged me. I actually initially walked into a trade thinking I was coming out with a Blacktop Strat, but after seeing the LP on the dude's rack I asked about it and ended up walking away with it.

I could get used to the cutaway but I wish they made jps without a trem and awful rosewood fretboard. An extra inch on the 7 would be nice too.

Congrats on the axes, JR!

And, while I'm not the biggest fan of Baroness, I DO like them (as well as Pelican & Mastodon). I think of them as kind of a heavier version of BÖC.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
