When I first got my DRRI, it was used...but barely. Nothing was broken in. I loved it in the store and at home, I thought it was really thin and tinny sounding. Like a can or something.
Playing it loud and with OD pedals really helped. Now the sound is much fuller without any pedals. My telecaster sounds nice and fully and very clean. I plug in my Epi Dot and just use the bridge pup and crank the amp....someone's calling the cops but it sounds so good.
