    Reverb pedals...

    Love theDeluxe Plus pedal from Mr. Black!! As the site says: "...Splish-splash with dripping spring reverb and ride the motion of the ocean with smooth bias-modulating tremolo. Do em one at a time, or two in tandem for the double whammy. Plus."

    Guitar Warehouse speakers

    Haven't tried the Veteran but as to WGS speakers: Found a really clean 1967 Gibson Skylark (white panel) GA5-T amp with blown speaker for $250. These are known to be on the bright side. Called WGS and they recommended their 10" G10C/S 75W (to keep it a bit warmer.) I gotta say I absolutely...

    Back From the Blight?

    Beautiful tree. Have always loved trees. The more I learn about how some trees communicate through their roots/fungi and actually exchange nutrients, take care of each other etc., the more amazing they are!!

    4 way switching Tele (Series/Parallel)

    I like my 3-way, so did a push/pull on the tone knob. Really like this! Standard Tele layout until I want a thicker beefier sound and I just pull the tone knob out.

    Speaker brand preferences

    i am so very impressed with my WGS G10C/S !!!!!! Also have a homemade cab with a Celestion 10" Greenback that I'm very happy with, but that Warehouse G10C/S is amazing (was from day one!). "Golden velvet," you got that right! Rich like gold, smooth like velvet. And mine is in my little 1967...

    Does anybody prefer a 1x10 vs a 1x12 ever?

    First off, I love the sound of my Vox Pathfinder 15R with the stock 8" speaker. It's just right! Then I built a largish closed back cab (Orange spleaker-sized) which has a Greenback 10" that I run an Orange Micro Terror into. That GB 10 sounds great in a larger closed cab. And I picked up...

    Anybody else with the Mr Black DeluxePlus?

    Seriously surf heaven!!! Reverb/tremolo!! Just got mine and it kept me up half the night!! Wow!!! I like some of my pedals a lot, but this is on another level. (My most humble response.) My Tele > DeluxePlus > Gibson GA5-T with a Warehouse 10" G10 C/S speaker.

    Post a random fact or two about yourself

    My dad started me driving a tractor by myself in the fields when I was nine years old. When in the Navy, during the Nam war years, I was blown across the flight deck of an aircraft carrier by a fighter jet blast in the middle of the ocean. I ended up wrapped around the front strut of another...

    Favorite P90 and for what type of music?

    I am very happy with the Lollar P-90 in my upgraded Epi Special. Very high quality P-90 with a lot love from many. Not a budget choice if that's an issue, but check into comments and reviews. Lollar makes an excellent P-90. Check this thread if any doubt...

    Would you change anything on a classical Tele design?

    I spent much of my life working with raw materials, steel stock, 2x4s, 2x6s, etc. and absolutely love and am comfortable with the original body. My other guitars that feel right to me are my hot-rodded Epi Special and my Gretsch Electromatic 5415 ... both also flat solid slabs of wood. I've...
