The mini bar (off topic & misc) / Re: Allan Holdsworth
« on: August 16, 2019, 03:30:23 pm »
Me to bump. I just checked out a live vid of Alan doing Devil Takes the Hindmost from ‘92. Man!!!!!!Crazy that I do some of the same techniques but in a completely different genre. The three note per string finished, string skipped runs. They sound so much different over a jazz progression. That guy was just a true master. That legato. Man o man. Sorry I am waxing all Holdsworth fanboy, but my mind was just blown like in those jet commercials. There is this purple cloud hanging over my.....Anyhow.

Wish I would have been turned on to Holdsworth sooner.

After this Seymour is going to offer the following Jimi Hendrix box sets!:madness:

1) Wind Cries Mary Set

2) National Anthem Set

3) Foxy Lady Set

4) Are you Experienced Set

5) Reverse engineered Monterrey scorched set

6) Band of Gypsies Set

7) Posthumous Jimi Set... covers all new works of Jimi

I thought the posthumous set were the Cas Chandler limited editions.

Even though I don’t have one in any of my guitars, the ones that I have played with the Breed sound nice with one exception. That being a Les Paul. It sounded dead in the Paul that I played.

I downsized from a rack system and 412 to a 212 combo. I quickly installed casters. I am now playing it and a 112 combo in stereo.

I am putting a new rack together as well. That whole ball of yarn cane from me scoring an ADA MP-1 preamp for $75 a few years ago. That preamp is as good as I remember. Great tube tones, programmability, and diversity. Perfect to go through my stereo solid state Peavy setup. Now I need a Quadraverb.

I just took a look and I also don’t particularly care for how the schematics are organized. It just seems less than intuitive in how it is laid out. That being said, I would have to agree with the statement about Dimarzio customer service. I contacted them not long ago, and they were very happy to take the time to make some suggestions.

I just saw it myself so I wouldn’t feel too far out of the loop.

I would say that or the PAF ‘59.

I wouldn’t classify it as a Dimarzio’s Duncan ‘59. I have a ‘59 and n more than one axe, and have the Pro in more than one axe. Not even in the same zip code, tonally speaking. The ‘59 has a vintage voice going on, and is a much darker sounding pickup. They’re both great, and versatil, but the Pro is a balanced modern vibe.

Agreed. Just did the vvhb2 in the neck of one of my hs super strats. By far the best stacked single I have used  that retains a great single coil tone, but keeps up with the med-hi output bucker in the bridge. Also sounds good with 500 k controls. This is now my go to neck single coil. Especially with a bridge humbucker.

Yes! And I couldn’t agree more. I can build one like Eddie did for under a grand. So why would I buy one for the cost of a car?

God. I don’t know. I have so many super strats of differing brands. I still have a soft spot for the one I have had since my freshman year in high school, my ‘89 Peavey Tracer Deluxe. Basically a bolt on version of the Vandenburg. Same pickups, same bridge (Kahler Spyder), same neck. The fact that it made it through my teenage gigging yrs. just cements it at the top of my heap.

The Pickup Place / Re: HSS pickups in a Tele......what pots to use???

I agree on the 250k volume. I have guitars that have 'buckers with 250k and some w 500k. Not terribly different. I am using a 500k with my vvhb2 though and love it in that guitar with that pot value. Go figure.

So I saw the NAMM info in this guitar and when I finally saw the price, I threw up in my mouth a little. AMS is listing $19000 for what is basically a parts caster shred stick. I thought to myself,”Who in God’s name are they marketing these to?” And then it hit me. The same people that will spend 50gs on a Dumble and brag about it on the gear page.

I saw a review on musicians friend when they released the Frankenstein replicas where a dentist bought one to hang on the wall in his waiting room. Yeah THAT’S not a waste of $25,000.

I wonder if I can cash in on this cow and make a 5150 replica out of my ‘85 Kramer Barretta and charge an astronomical sum for it. Maybe throw in one of those custom shop Duncan’s that Seymour says he wound for Eddie. ::)

You can’t go wrong with that combo.

My Big Apple Strat is the most versatile axe I have. Low to moderate output 2 bucker guitar with 5 way. Not much that can’t be played on that axe and it is by far my desert island guitar.
