    Included the pics first in case you don’t care to read the rest.

    So I’ve more or less arrived on Thinline Teles with single coils being my perfect guitar. I got a Squier CV a couple months ago and that got me hooked. Just so happened Dave’s in Milwaukee had a 2011 AVRI ‘69, so took my kid up for the day for some fun in the city and ended up taking it home with us.

    It’s gonna take me a little while to get used to the 7.25” radius. I was really digging the 9.5” on the CV, that guitar played easier, I won’t lie. But you can definitely tell the quality difference. The CV is a good guitar in its own right, but the AVRI feels more solid in build, fuller in tone. The neck does feel a bit chunkier which I do like.

    I also received a Savage Macht 6 in the mail from Reverb today. Very open and full sounding. I’ve compared this to a Victoria 5112 and prefer the Savage. Seems to have more authority, more punch. It stays clean longer than I expected, but it may just be that way with single coils.

    I had some credit at Dave’s, so I tried a couple drive pedals as well. I was sure I wanted an overdrive, tried a Paisley Drive, an EQD Westwood and Palisades. The Paisley sounded best with some more gain, the Palisades sounded good but twiddling all the knobs was giving me anxiety, and the Westwood sounded decent but a little grainy.

    I wasn’t totally set on any of them, and decided to try a Micro Amp for the first time ever. Boom, exactly the sound I was looking for with this amp. Gave the single coils a bit of oomph to bring the amp into a roaring touch sensitive overdrive, but with a bit of sparkle none of the other pedals had. Now I’m debating if I get two of them to stack...

    TLDR: I got an AVRI ‘69 Thinline, a Savage Macht 6, and a Micro Amp, and awesome tones ensued.
