I don't think Yo has gotten married as of yet.  I'm supposed to play at the wedding, when it does happen.

Danny, how is married life treating Yosoy? I wonder what everyone is playing guitar wise and playing through amp wise these days.

I check in every couple of days to see if anything is going on, but everybody seems to have decided to let "our thing' fizzle out.....

La Cosa Note-tra. Get it? Errybody is busy I suppose. This is me sending out "check in at Burlap and Blues" mental waves.  :brow: :brow: :brow:

Amplifiers / Fender '57 Custom Deluxe
« Last post by chuckinator5k on January 18, 2020, 05:13:20 am »
I'm letting my brother borrow my Two Rock Bloomfield Drive for a few months so I've been getting to know my hand wired Fender '57 Custom Deluxe better. I really like this amp. Other than being too bassy, I love it. My pedal board consists of a Peterson Stomp Classic tuner ---> Strymon DECO tape saturation/doubletracker ---> Tech 21 Q Strip preamp/eq --->Strymon Timeline delay ---> Strymon Blue Sky verb ---> input 1 on the amp. I don't use the Q Strip or DECO on the Bloomfield Drive, doesn't need it. They come in handy on this amp though. The DECO saturation is a silky smooth alternative to most OD pedals (don't use the doubletracker side much) and the Q Strip allows me to take the bass frequencies down while adding mids etc. I have the Timeline set on tape slapback delay. The Blue Sky I have set on plate verb, pretty low mix. The amp isn't heavy which makes it a breeze to haul around. The Bloomfield is a monster at 65lbs. Getting some beautiful tone from this setup. The amp is 12 watts but seems plenty loud. My main axe now is the Ibanez I mentioned in the guitar thread section with the Buddha P90s. The other axes I play most are my orange Strat (Esmerelda) with Jeff Beck noiseless pups, a Gibby 335 (2017 red dot) with the original humbuckers, my 2004 Les Paul and 2018 Firebird Studio, both with Buddha P90s. Hope y'all are have a great start to 2020! Rock on!

Regards, Chuckster

Guitars / Ibanez RG6UC Prestige
« Last post by chuckinator5k on October 30, 2019, 03:38:24 pm »
I love this guitar. Probably more of a metal player's guitar but I love how it plays. The neck has a wider nut making it easier to play cleanly. Flat radius ebony fretboard, big fat frets. It plays and feels beautiful. The back of the neck has next to no finish on it. My hand slides on it effortlessly. It came with Bare Knuckle Aftermath pups designed with "New Metal" in mind. They sounded OK through my Two Rock Bloomfield Drive if I backed the volume way off. Actually better than just OK. But I'm a P90 guy these days, specifically Buddha hand wound P90s (available on Reverb), A4 neck A5 bridge. Very snappy. The BD is the best sounding amp I've ever owned and the Buddha P90s (A4 and A5 combo) are the best sounding pups through that amp. Such a snappy/clean overdriven sound. Not at all muddy. Makes me play cleaner as any mistake comes through crystal clear. The BD seems to like P90s of any stripe. I have a Telecaster with Lollar P90s and a Godin with Lollar P90s for humbucker slot. the Buddhas sound better. So much so that I swapped the humbuckers in my Les Paul, Firebird Studio and the Ibanes with the P90s for humbucker slot. You could plug a broomstick guitar into the BD and it would sound decent I think. I hardly ever play my Strats any more. The only guitar I have with Humbuckers is a Gibson 335. Not going to swap them out, it sounds fantastic. I have another Tele with the original pups that sound great. But I can't seem to put the Ibanez down. I haven't played a blues jam with it yet, probably get laughed out of the joint. I'm taking it to the next one I go to though. Don't know if you guys remember my old go to Strat "Esmerelda." I put Jeff Beck Fender noiseless pups in it, I like them a lot. I have to back the volume off a bit as they're pretty hot pups. I think the BD likes pups that are less hot. I need to try some underwound single coils in my black Strat. I'll order up some underwound Buddhas and see how they sound. Hope y'all are doing well. Rock on!

The Sg arrived a couple of days ago, I immediately cut off the '9s that were on it, oiled the fretboard, put 10s on it, and raised the action a bit on the treble side, only to discover it played even better lover than it was before.  (You couldn't slip a butterfly's fart between the strings and the fretboard to begin with)  The thing's a little monster, and well worth the money!  Tone for days and days!  It's so light it's like playing air guitar!

Sweet Danny! I was looking at your guitar online and a Firebird with one pickup popped up. 1300.00 smackers. It's a real Firebird with the neck through the body, has the little ridge going across the body. Upside down headstock. Silver metallic. Very tempting. Looks like Gibson is getting their poop in a group finally!
