    White Pick Guard? Or Black Guard the way Leo and God intended?

    Parchment white gets my vote.

    Do You Need A Strat Or Tele?

    *I* believe everyone needs a Telecaster. It's nearly indestructible, and definitely a dependable work-horse. I have both Fenders, and have grown to dislike the Strat. I play mostly rhythm guitar, and can't seem to avoid the pick-up selector switch on the Strat. I like the neck p'up on my...

    How many Tele-only players here?

    I love Teles, and have purchased and built numerous versions. HOWEVER, I gravitate to the larger bodies because they feel more comfortable to play. I will never be without a Tele! Best, most durable work-horse guitar ever! And, they cover just about everything under the sun as well. I just...

    NOAD - Frustrated!

    Frustrated with my "usuals," I pulled out my '72 Traynor YBA-1, plugged in my Scotty-Caster, ran it into a small open back cab with a vintage (re-coned & broken-in) EVM12L... A couple of pedals for verb and OD, and we're ROCKING!! Blues, Country, and Rock, here we come!! Yee Haa!! What made...

    ES-335 Vintage Pickup Suggestions

    How about P-90s? My 335 has low wind (50s spec, whatever that is) P-90s. Sounds great! How about the SD HB sized P-90s?

    Do you prefer the feel of a Fender or a Gibson?

    My preference is the large, hollow/semi-hollow, "thin" Gibson bodies. I'd like the necks better with lower frets, and larger grip (say, a '59 shape, as opposed to a "Slim Taper"). Love my Tele! But it feels and sounds small by comparison.

    Organ Simulator Pedals

    What I like about the Digitech Ventura Vibe is that the roto-vibe speed goes from slow (adjustable) to fast, and slows down approprately, when released. Not a very good "roto-vibe" tone, but believable speed changes. It always "wakes" people up! Haha!
