It'll be worth a little more to someone who's a fan of that shade of red, and less to someone who isn't. For everyone else, it's just a Custom Telecaster. Go with the Reverb pricing for that model.
"Rare" doesn't always mean "more valuable".
Most people who buy amps don't gig, or in any serious manner. We're in the era of the mega hobbyist. I bought a big TV for $800, when it breaks, I'll buy another one. I have a lot of TVs in my house, thanks to my wife, and in 30 years of owning flat panel TV's I've had one go bad, well after the...
In general, people set up their electric guitars to be as easy to play as possible given their circumstances.
When I started playing in the early 80's, .009's were the standard for electric guitar. SRV was the thing that caused a shift to playing heavier strings. There are some things you can...
Guitars that don't stay in tune just need a pro setup and proper stringing. If he wants a JM, get him a JM and have it setup prior to sending him off to school.
In a dorm, I'd go with a headphone capable amp. Now, when I was in college I had a SP TR and a Rockman in my room and I'd send the...
No-one said that buying a signature model guitar would improve your technique. It just makes it easier to LARP one's rock star fantasies.
Sometimes, the sig model has interesting features that aren't standard. Usually you could pay someone to mod a similar guitar, but many times its cheaper to...
I've used flats, and I really liked them. As long as you can accept you're not going to be doing much bending and that it's a .011 set, they fell and sound great. It's just a different great than round wounds.
Yeah. Or I've used that Tech21 rotary simulator, which also includes the fast/slow ramp.
The EHX organ simulators can be really good if you voice your chords right, and particularly if you hybrid/finger pick to simultaneously sound the notes.
The UD Stomp is about as fancy as it gets in a pedal. Eight separate delay lines, each with its own delay time, feedback, modulation, stereo position, hi and low pass filters. I do wish it had selectable waveforms for the modulation.
Yeah, I'm also some what unclear as to exactly what you're asking. If it's the ability to save a loop to non-volatile memory on the fly, I don't know--none of my loopers have non-volatile memory.
If you mean the ability to start recording a loop, and then end the loop without having it...
What Defines A Telecaster?
The Telecaster has a number of design elements which premiered on the Telecaster and were subsequently “abandoned” in the evolution of the Fender solid body guitar.
Body shape, including contours
Neck, including the headstock and tuner...
