I think the Falcon family is the sechs as a whole, really, but I've just liked the White one for a long time.

Epiphone Alleykat: first one is my actual guitar.

^How do you like the Alleykat? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get a Wildkat as my next guitar.
#46
Im currently thinking about getting a hollowbodied electric guitar and I was just wondering, are they loud enough to be played as an accoustic guitar? Not for a large audience but in general, are they noticeably louder than solid bodies?

I love it to pieces. IMO, Epi electronics in general are ass, so I'm dropping some Duncans in when I have some money on me. Other than that, I am completely satisfied. The QC is excellent on them, too, I gather - I've never played one that didn't have nice action. I've actually got a review of mine up on the main site that I did before I signed up here.

A friend of mine has a Wildkat, too. It's pretty wild.
#48
^yeah, I played one, but they don't have it in stock up where I am living now.

Hows the upper fret access? (I was playing slide on it and didn't bother with the peripherals).

Also, are the P-90's as bad as Epi humbuckers?

I can't really offer any help on the P-90s... I mean, they sound good to me on my freinds, but I don't really do single-coils. I may not be the person to ask about those.

Fret access? Above the twentieth fret is a little problematic. I have to stretch a bit, other than that, it's all good.

^ That Gibson has a really weird looking trem.

Man, I wish I knew more about P-90's. I haven't played too many guitars with them, but I have played enough to know that I want a guitar that has them.

up to 20 is all I really need.

They're great for, bright, trebley clean playing, but they're way too nasally for what I do.

Duncans on a hollowbody? Aren't they a bit too high-output on jazzbox?


If I decide to replace the pickups on my Ibanez, I'd go TV Jones.

Not really. Loads of guys have actually done what I'm doing - an SH-2 on the bridge, and an SM-2 on the neck.

If they had a minihumbucker, then I'd get some PRS pickups, but seeing as they don't...

I don't actually have a whole lot of experience with TVjones stuff, just from what I've played on a few Jets. How are they?

heres my ES-335




i have a gibson es-335 and those things r amzing, very versatile. And i thought since it was a semihollowbody it wouldnt hold distortion very well, but actually it is great with distortion and has a very classic tone to it.

Basically, all Gretches have TV Jones pickups in them, and the electronics of a Gretsch are to die for, so they're really good. Listen to Reverend Horton Heat or Brian Setzer, they've got TV Jones.


And I forgot about the Jazz model they had.

Hmm. I use my Epi for a little higher-octane stuff. I'll have to try out a few more Gretsches.

Yeah, but why is it that every guitar maker acts like it's taboo to put binding on a fretboard that has dots?

You're buying a Wildkat - that, and some old Ibanez Artists are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head that have dots and binding. I love the look that gives, though.

My 339 has binding and dots as well as my explorer pros although they're solid bodies.

I havez a modded Epi Dot and modded Wesley Freeport (thinline P-90 Tele copy).

Love both, especially with the new pups - BKP's for Dot and Lollars for Wesley. Semi's just have this airiness and clarity that's amazing. Oh, and my Wesley has abalone dots and binding on the fretboard.
#76
^ hows the Wesley holding up, I mean like the quality have you had it long?
think i might go try one out as the guy that makes them lives about 2 mile away.

Great, I love it. One small problem is the frets, they're not that great. But if you live near you can go and try out several and pick out the best, right? If that's the case, I'd say get one pronto. The colour (blueburst for mine) is great, the binding and abalone look amazing and with the mods it so far sounds almost exactly how an electric guitar should sound, to em at least.

And for £300 all told, for guitar, postage, mods and set-up, it's a steal. Beats my stock MIM Strat that cost the same by a ridiculous margin. And it's alder

And time wise about 4 months. 2 days with the mods though.

i'm getting an older epiphone sheraton II with the chunky bridge soon i hope. It has some of the gold hardware faded, and i think that makes it look better everything about the thinline gibson/epi style hollow/semi-hollows is pure sex imo. the look, the tone, the feel. everything.

I'm thinking about grabbing an old Sheraton. I'd like to get one of the old white ones.
