    At it again; '69 SuperLead build

    It was a great time. I loved it when Suhr stepped in and when the Fake Rudy Leiren came around.

    At it again; '69 SuperLead build

    So great seeing Ralle and Galpin mentioned over here. The Metro forum had a few years where it was it for Marshall’s.

    Is it me, or have Daddario's gone to shit?

    My session amp those days was a VHT Fifty/Twelve which was incredible but I didn’t want it walking off.

    Is it me, or have Daddario's gone to shit?

    We played there mid-to-late 90s. SO fun. Crazy. We left our setup at the location because it was a 5-day gig so I just took my old Marshall Valvestate 65 and a Boss pedal board. Sounded great!

    SOLD MJT 51 Nocaster

    That’s a very nice Tele.

    Is it me, or have Daddario's gone to shit?

    Yes, doing sessions is FAR different from my long-lost live days. My old band used to have the Byron Nelson golf tournament gig every year and that sweaty/humid environment would mean 2 shows for a set of strings. What a great gig that was - five or six thousand screaming folks under a massive...

    Exactly. Just really lucky.

    Is it me, or have Daddario's gone to shit?

    No, I play 9s or 10s (depending on FR or traditional bridge). I have a very light touch and my hands don’t sweat or have any acidity. My Telecaster - man it may be 2012 since I changed strings on that guitar and I am currently sessioning that one. Usually what happens is a truss rod will need...

    Is it me, or have Daddario's gone to shit?

    I never* have to change strings - but have always been a Fender 150, GHS Nickel Rocker guy. Last few years I have liked the DR Pure Blues. Gibson vintage pure nickel seems fine too - but I have only had them for about 5 months. *not exaggerating - I have two guitars right now with strings...

    My SLO lead channel build

    Carl is so good. Every single build is unique and glorious. I’m still sad I didn’t get that JTM45 build-on-steroids he did. It was like Cream had an Apostle sitting in.

    6L6GC vs EL34 vs KT77 Tubes... Educate me please

    Uh…different pinouts on the EL34 and 6L6. If the amp isn’t specifically designed to take both (as in a single-ended design) then it won’t work.

    Best high end strat for the money?

    I have an EJ Virginia that is great, and a 2014 CS ‘54 that is really really good. Although I don’t own one, every James Tyler I have picked up has been amazing.

    ESP Kamikaze 1- who has played one?

    I had one of the original day-glow Kamikazes that I got back in '89 I think. Sounded fantastic, it came with an ESP version of a PAF (braided wire and all). It was just so heavy.

    Fatbag at it again?!?!?!

    Sheesh, I’m not a sympathizer...but how about a link to the threads or a telling of the facts? That just plays better and would get more traction from those who weren’t robbed or screwed over or whatever happened. I know he ended up with Ou’s 100a that he’d had forever. Incredibly rare amp. Does...

    Fatbag at it again?!?!?!

    He has always dealt with me in a very nice and upstanding way. I understand, from reading here, there was an issue. Caveat emptor, but let’s not descend into scapegoating.

    Who here has Synergy amp & modules?

    I have the 50 watt head, the Bogner Ecstasy, the Friedman BEBB, and the T/DLX. I absolutely love it. I haven't played any of the other stuff, but the modules/head sound KILLER. I mean, I get the best Twin & Deluxe tones I've ever heard - plus completely accurate XTC sounds (and all three...

    Cab and speaker recommendations (need a huge sound at low volumes)

    Scumbacks are FANTASTIC, I’m a total fanboy it is all I use, but they need volume. The only amps I have that don’t have Scumbacks in them are my Katana 100w combo (I dig that speaker, but it sounds worse the louder it gets) and my Fender Deluxe Reverb - and I hate that Jensen.

    Cab and speaker recommendations (need a huge sound at low volumes)

    Those Scumbacks are exactly like the G12-65s. Put a pair of V30s on the bottom and you’ll be set. Those really don’t need any volume to get going.

    George Lynch tone?

    He has a very discernible way of executing each note. I believe this is a function of his picking action (slicing movement) and the timing of pick contact and fretting. We are talking microseconds here, but it gives his sound a roundness and fluidity that is unique. That sort of thing is for...

    George Lynch tone?

    When did Lynch get into Fanes? I thought that was a part of that sound.
