    OMG, this is the first time I hear Gregory Kochery sound even sloppy. Normally he's a beast on a guitar. Maybe he got distracted by the sound or he was tipsy.:lol:

    I used to have a humbucker LP. I forgot my pedal board and went straight into a '66 BF DR. We were practicing in a warehouse so I got to crank it.

    WOW!!!

    Sadly I no longer own either.

    Really, most guitars sound great through most fender amps...

    Every time I hear the next dork nickname for some ‘59 Les Paul that has changed hands 27 times among dealers and hedge fund bozo’s I cringe.

    “Dangerburst”...:rolleyes:

    I have heard Les Paul’s through deluxe reverbs sound way better than that

    My Les Pauls and my ES-335 all sound great through my '65 Deluxe Reverb, but all my guitars sound great through that little combo.

    When you comment a bad game of a football team you admire, do people around you ask you to show your ball skills?

    You can still hear? It looks like Greg has earplugs in the video.

    Played a '69 335 through a '66 deluxe reverb for many years; I always thought it sounded good.

    well...all I know and care about is how my LP sounds thru my DR reissue...of course I have re-tubed it with NOS Raytheons and tweaked the bias up from a cold factory setting to a nice luke warm and it sings with HB's..The DR reissue has been a go to amp of mine since new..2009 with ZERO issues..Play Loud

    Played my Les Paul with ‘57’s through my BFDR last night. Not a bad tone to be had.

    Whoever said humbuckers don't like Fender amps never paired an ES-335 with a BFSR.

    The blackface DR isn't my favorite amp and my old Les Paul Custom is no longer my favorite guitar, but they sound good together. Had that LPC since 1982 and always liked it through Fender amps. Heck I like my Teles through my Marshalls too.
