    Gibson Les Paul, Fender Telecaster & ???

    Something with a mahogany body and P90s for sure. I sort of live that life: Telecaster (x3) Gibson Les Paul PRS McCarty with P-90s.

    Finish over nitro

    I've been planning to have a local artist do some custom paint on my tele. It's currently finished in reticulated nitro. Can we just seal it in shellac, add the custom art, and then shellac on top of that? Do we still need to add a clear coat to finish? Or is all of this a bad idea? This...

    "What Your Favorite Sad Dad Band Says About You"

    Just glad Gen X is getting a little roast! It's always boomers, millennials, and Z that's gets the attention - positive or negative.

    P90 Teles

    Looks great! Sadly, I'm probably not going to be able to build a guitar I would be happy playing. Everytime I've tried to even make adjustments to my guitars, they end up with the luthier fixing my attempted "improvements".

    P90 Teles

    The cabronita is looking like a good option.

    Show us your Pedal board.

    Here's my board packed up and ready to go. But I've played a lot of gigs where I only used the tuner and Flint. I prefer to get my dirt from the amp and alternate between a few low wattage options I can usually crank (Matchless Lightning, Maz 18 Jr, Mesa Rectoverb) live.

    How important is tube generated reverb and tremolo to you?

    All my amps have it, but after the onboard reverb in my Matchless started acting up and the factory failed to correct the problem after a 4 month wait and $250 shipping (it was serviced but the reverb still randomly cuts out 50% of the time), I decided it would be cheaper to get a Strymon Flint...

    P90 Teles

    Is it so wrong that I really want a tele with dual P-90s? These seem hard to find. To be clear, I want a regular tele with a sawed in half traditional bridge, not a custom or deluxe. Know where I might look that doesn't involve dropping more than $2500? Non-Fender is OK (I already have a Ron...

    I want to get serious about a pedal board but...

    I swear by my Voodoo labs. Durable, quiet, and reliable. Works with everything. But a little $$$.

    Tele prices just went up

    Wow. Got mine just before Xmas for $1300 (local shop with a sale). Compared Sweetwater to GC. The MSRP has definitely increased.

    All your guitars are destroyed ... you have 2000$

    Tough choices. I'd blow it all on 1 guitar but depending on my mood it will be one of these: 1. Used PRS McCarty P-90 model (mid 2000s go for ~$2k) 2. Ron Kirn T-style 3. Nash T with humbucker bridge and P90 neck

    What is your Favorite non Fender Tele?

    Nothing comes close to my Ron Kirn, though I still have one of my old fenders for nostalgia.

    NAD: Maz 18 Jr

    Just added a Maz 18 Jr. to complement my Matchless Lightning and Mesa Rectoverb 25. Clearly, I'm an EL-84 man! The Maz Jr can't beat the magical sparkling cleans from my Matchless but I get a great mid-80s Marshal-ly tone out of it using the high input (master: noon-1:00) volume: 3:00) and the...

    Seriously, how many frets do you use?

    I'll use every fret available for solos and routinely incorporate chord work into our songs up the 17th. But you need a high quality set-up if you want those chords to chime which is a pain when I play on friends' gear.

    I'll look for that. Thanks!

    Ron Kirn Telecaster

    Just received mine today. Ponderosa Pine from 1870. Fralin P-92 in the neck and RK in the bridge with a 4 way switch. Pretty much play exclusively with the 2 settings with both pu. An insane tone machine through my Matchless Lightning.
