    Orange Crush 20rt vs 35rt

    That Joyo pedal is very tempting! It may be a nice addition to my pedalboard - I really see myself getting one by the end of the year. And thanks for sharing that info about the micro-amp. I never heard of that. I'll check it out a bit more.

    Orange Crush 20rt vs 35rt

    Thanks for the responses everyone, much appreciated. From what I've seen overall from your experiences, the 35rt would be much too loud for my bedroom level volume, playing at home purposes. I'll stick to the 20rt. I can't play the clean channel because I'd have to crank it too loud for a...

    Orange Crush 20rt vs 35rt

    I have an Orange Crush 20rt, but wondering if the larger speaker on the 35rt provides an improvement in tone? I only play at home at bedroom and television volumes. I never gig or record or play with a band. I really only turn the master volume on the Orange Crush 20rt to about 7 o'clock, but I...

    Michael Kelly Tele, aftemarket neck

    That makes a lot of sense. Thanks so much for explaining. I'll see how this goes.

    Michael Kelly Tele, aftemarket neck

    Good advice. Would you say that a neck of a different scale (ex. 9.5" instead of 10.5") would not work?

    Michael Kelly teles

    I have one but it's from a few years ago. It's the 1953. I liked the neck much better than Fender necks, and overall quality is good. Unfortunately I had an accident while moving and the neck snapped. So I can't play the guitar anymore. But I think the Michael Kelly teles are great! I...

    Michael Kelly Tele, aftemarket neck

    OP, if you're still around, I was wondering what you ended up doing? I'm in a similar situation where I'm looking to replace the neck on my Michael Kelly 1953. I'm not sure if the intonation issue could be remedied.

    That's great to know, just what I was hoping to hear. Thanks!

    Classic Vibe Tele looks pink?

    All the ones I've seen looked like that. I think the CV Strats do too. I like it to be honest.

    Fender Mustang GTX50 - how does it take pedals

    Just curious about how the Fender Mustang GTX50 handles dirt pedals. I haven't had a chance to try this or the GTX100 in person, but from the demos I've heard, I like the amp tones of the models. But my pedalboard is a huge part of my sound, at least my fuzz, overdrive and distortion pedals...

    Tonerider pickups for Strats

    Thanks everyone! I plan on actually trying both Toneriders and Boostraps. @fender4life your post was helpful and I decided to try out the Bootstrap 54 Pro and the Sun City Select. With those prices I can't go wrong trying both! I have a Squier Paranormal Cyclone that is equipped with Strat...

    Tonerider pickups for Strats

    Thanks for sharing that info and suggestions. I wasn't familiar with pine as a tonewood so it's definitely a good idea to match pickup choice with the quality of pine. I believe the new CV Strat pickups are a little hotter than vintage (I could be wrong) which would be probably hotter than the...

    Tonerider pickups for Strats

    Very informative post, thanks. The guitar in question is a newish Squier classic vibe 50s Strat. Body is pine, fretboard and neck is maple. I admit I've always looked for pickups the other way around, looking at what specs the pickups are and then hoping they sound good in the guitar. What I'm...

    Tonerider pickups for Strats

    Thanks for the replies! I actually have a set of City Limits and Classic Blues that I found in my drawer, completely forgetting I'd bought them years ago. So I'm curious, will probably bring them to the shop to get one of the sets installed. Sounds like they're worth a shot!
