It isn't a competition, but Chet.
I say mmmmakes sense, he’s a great player absolutely one of the best around. The cs version is cool but yeah pricey for being a players guitar.. and I’d really like to see someone that has the guts to play that in public except Brent himself
I'll grant you, that's a worthy observation and a fair argument. Well said.
It would be pretty cool to recreate that pup and switch/knob setup in a partscaster. Personally, I would think I'd not use the bender a lot, and I don't love the primer gray. I do really like the idea behind the "Stories" series - recreating great guitarist's cool-modded guitars.
That's a great video.
$2500 msrp so I guess around $2000 street price
Not bad for a US made guitar with the kitchen sink ACTUALLY thrown in
That’s much better than $12,500, LOL!
Over here, I usually try to negotiate them down to around 55-60% of MSRP. But if they have to travel across the sea, I’m sure they become more expensive along the way.
If the center knob turns down the center pick up, why do you need the push pull? Probably an obvious answer and I'm missing something. Normal state for me. Is there a need for it to be "off". Different caps?
I wired my middle pickup to a stacked volume pot once but adding another 500k in parallel to what's already there kind of killed the quacky shine unless he's got a more magical way of doing it. Besides, the ability to blend didn't do much IMO.
What are the Valley Arts versions going for these days? Has there even been one for sale in the last decade or so?
14” radius is awesome. My D’Angelico has a 14” radius. It’s fantastic. Of course I don’t like much rounder than a 10”.
12”, 14”, and 16 are all good by me. I only have one guitar that I think is a little too flat. It’s compound radiused 16-24. Other people who play it go ga-ga over it but I’ve never totally gotten along with it. It’s the one that taught me that things can be taken too far.
I wonder what a $2,500 (MAP/MSRP) Fender reproduction will do for/to the market price for the used Valley Arts units.
That string tree close to the nut... ?
Hmmm. Maybe not a bad idea for those of us who sometimes pop the e string out of the nut when playing certain assertive ways? Might help stabilize that situation more than a high-sided nut on that e string side? Some interesting “out of the norm” thinking on his guitar.
First time I've heard his name. Looked him up. Prolific and uber talented. Must be a cool guy too, to work with so many people.
I don't want that guitar at all, though.
Ima wait for the Guthrie Trapp model.
I'm really really surprised from all the modifications Brent has have done to his Telecaster through the years
That he did not have the neck radius flattened!
Apparently his original one is 7.25"
But I guess with his bender-- he can live with that radius.
My sister-in-law's brother's mother's cousin knows.
Brent is a really great guy. Saw him play in a 100 seat club in Nashville a few years ago and he and Vince Gill just walked in with their iconic Teles in gig bags and sat down.
The next day Brent was walking around during NAMM and would be kind enough to at least talk for a minute or sign an autograph for anybody.
