I'd been a Tele player for years (had a multitude of Am Std, Am Dlx, Mexi, RI models) as well as owning multiple SGs, Strats, Jazzmasters and a 20th Ann EBMM Silhouette but when I picked up my LP Traditional it just felt perfect in my hands. Didn't think I would get the feeling of 'the one' from a LP but yeah
I just bought a Jazzmaster to accomodate my Les Paul, I have a Gibson Traditional Satin and at the time it was against 70's MIJ Greco's and a couple of Edwards as well. When I played them side by side the Gibson killed them in terms of playability and sound but it really is subjective. Traditionals come up all the time for 2k or under, some stores in Aus are clearing out older models. Best advice I can give is play as many as you can, you'll find the one that feels right!
Definitely would have gone to that, Wonder Years had to pull out of their last Aus tour, was super bummed about it. Incubus tickets were heaps, could've gone to soundwave for a day for the same price! Might check out that Clowns show though, cheers for the heads up man!
New Found Glory/Bayside/The Wonder Years is tonight but thats a bit late.
Clowns are playing tomorrow. other than that nothing really yeh. Why are you over here?
The only sidewave gig I looked at was Incubus, wish I knew about the NFG/Wonder Years one earlier. Whereabouts is clowns? Initially booked flights for soundwave halfway through last year before the lineup release purely because I got them super cheap ($250 return from Perth is almost unheard of). Wasn't super happy with the lineup but I mean a holiday is a holiday! Sydney weather is whack.
Just picked up a Soul Food, such a great little pedal! Can't believe I didn't pick it up sooner.
Looking at a new delay now, don't really dig my DL4 but I acquired it for free. If I want clean repeats AND a good modulated analog sound (that's manageable in a live setting) is it possible to get it in one package or am I better off with a DD20/Tape Delay (El Cap, Empress) combo?
I have $255 in there, the MLjr is $325 and the Timeline is $550. They have lots of REALLY nice delays, but my need for longer times and tap tempo rules a lot of them out.
I'd go the Timeline man, I've gone through loads of delays but always want more options than what I bought previously, saving up for a Timeline now to partner up with my Empress Tape which should hopefully mean I don't need another delay ever.
Hey guys, Rockerverb 100 MKII. Thinking about offering my Eggy for one in a trade to a guy who wants to downsize. I like versatility, a good FX loop for all my delay and will probably put 88's in it if I got it. Halp, I'm torn here.
I picked up a Rockerverb 50 MKI recently and the amp is super versatile, I'd say go for it man!
Not exactly a LP question, my Ibanez Musician tonally is very similar and I'm not happy with the pickups that are currently in it. I'm looking for a neck pickup that stays relatively clean but is smooth when overdriven and a good moderate output bridge pickup. Never really owned anything close to an LP, any ideas guys?
Owner of an AC50 Classic Plus head here! I run it through a Framus Dragon cab (loaded with V30's). I can't believe this model is discontinued, fantastic clean tone with a decent amount of gain on tap. Anyone else have one out there?
