Here's a proper sound clip from Pete Thorn.
No talking (as there has been too much of that already..) just playing through a real amp with close micing (-;
You can hear the cleans in both full and chimey modes plus the light overdrive and solo drive.
Note the tone depth, fullness and how closely those two do the early 335 semi-hollow thing while still retaining the "solidness" needed to push a 59 single cut type creamy drive, also note the difference between the brighter Maple model VS the warmer All Mahogany.
What a beautiful guitar!
I like everything about it, especially after hearing Pete's demo.
I have a question about having the longer ABR post contacting the Mahogany. Won't the vibrations drive that little post right into the Mahogany? Kind of like a jackhammer?
@preeb probably knows this but others may not:
the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix has a magnificent collection.
Included in their rare & historic display - one of Gil's
I squealed like an 8 year old @Christmas when I realized what I was walking up to.
Sorry for potato pics.
