    Recommend an oddball/obnoxious pedal, please!

    OK, not quite as chaotic as the Malekko Chaos (IMO), but there's also J Rocket Audio's WTF Fuzz. (Points for the name regarding that 'obnoxious' factor, right?!) Mike Hermans' WTF demo...

    Recommend an oddball/obnoxious pedal, please!

    Want obnoxious? The Malekko Wolftone Chaos demo'ed by Andy by PGS... :twisted: Thanks to Andy's demo, I actually broke down and bought one of these several years back... now to find a really good use for it. But, man, it's sure fun!

    Strat neck pickup on a Tele?

    My Peavey Omniac JD USA (aka the Jerry Donahue signature model) comes with Duncan JD Strat neck pickup as well as a JD Bridge pickup and a 5-way switch for several tonal options. I definitely dig the Strat neck on its own as well as one position having a Strat-like in-between "notched" thing...

    Show me your Ice Blue Metallic guitars

    And here's my PRS S2 Studio Ltd Ed. (2018), currently OOP. IMHO, the metallic frost blue mates so well with the creamy pickguard, and I definitely dig having the dot inlays here. And by the way, contrary to a frequently asked question, the S2 Studio does not tonally 'replace' having a Strat...

    Show me your Ice Blue Metallic guitars

    I'll play, too. My '17 Gibson Firebird T with with Steinberger fearless tuners and Lollars (not that you could tell. lol!)... Ergonomically, this is possibly my most uniquely constructed guitar, and it always takes me a few minutes to come to terms in grappling with it... but it's definitely...

    Memory Loss - Age Related

    My somewhat related thing is that I've had a recurring dream the last couple of years about a really cool metallic blue solidbody I "own" (I don't recognize the make, but it's kinda Fender-is. No, OP, it's not your blue Tele! lol), and it's one that's always "stored" in a case along with my many...

    Electric 12 String Options

    Another lower cost alternative, IF you can manage to find one of these out-of-production models, is the Yamaha Pacifica 303 12 (or later 303 12ii version, same guitar, different cosmetics). 12 intonatable saddles and ample string spacing (IMO) with a 5-way switch for those "Strat quack" tones...

    Yamaha Guitar Owner's Club

    Nice analysis! I agree with your points entirely. Question: Have you ever owned or played the solidbody 620 version to be able to compare it with the HB semi-hollow? Wondering more about them having significant tonal and feel differences. (And, besides that, I do think the "whatever-holes" are...

    Favorite Analog Tremolo Pedals?

    There's the Keeley DynaTrem Dynamic Tremolo. Of course, it does a great standard trem, but it can also work with your playing dynamics, and the harmonic trem function is simply outstanding wit its uni-vibe/phasor sheen added. Here's a great demo by Mike Hermans...

    How about a good low output PAF type pickup?

    THIS+++ I have a set of SD Antiquities in a great PRS SE Zac Myers, and it's awesome. (FYI, I have several Core PRSes and this ZM sits fairly right amongst them.) Not a semi-hollow, but I also have a GREAT Eastman SB59/v with SD Ants... OMG. SD Antiquities have pretty much become my favorite...

    Would you own a black Tele, or any other kind of black guitar for that matter?

    Yeah. I know what you mean. Too bad about black, huh? NOT! :) Now, that's not my own personal Fender D'Aquisto Elite, but it looks just like it, and, like this one, it's also in totally immaculate condition. Bought new in '85, allegedly one of only five left in the Fender warehouse. I...

    Another run on stores.

    How about making your own? We ordered some N95 filter sets from Amazon last week; the order went thru fine, and it's "on it's way", but... they seem stalled, apparently on a slow boat sitting somewhere, and it's also still "too soon" for USPS Tracking to have them show up. So, my wife is making...

    Supro Drive Pedal

    I play both rock and jazz, and so I get where you're coming from. Have you ever tried a Durham Electronics Sex Drive (named after guitarist Charlie Sexton)? It's pretty much an always-on kind of pedal (as most will say, and I agree), getting you just a touch more 'oomph' out of the amp. It's...

    Jerry Donahue had a stroke....

    Oh, my.... I just came across this very sad news here only this evening, and I'm praying for a hopefully speedy and full recovery for Jerry. He's always been a HUGE favorite of mine, and he's simply an amazing Tele-master. I was actually lucky enough to buy one of his Peavey Omniac guitars years...

    Egnater Tweaker Club

    What a nice 'family' photograph! (Nice photo besides!) Yeah, your wife is right. Have fun with your new 'old friend'. Sounds good from here... Welcome to the group! :-)
