    Fret Buzz - Why Can't I Setup my Strats To Play Like My Gibsons?

    Strat has a longer scale than Les Paul. The longer the vibrating length of a string, the more movement the string makes while vibrating. So, you need more relief and action height if you use the same string gauge with a Strat, compared to a Les Paul. One option to keep action height down on a...

    What PRS style would you want them to make?

    Another "bedroom Marshall" thread, more like "basement Marshall" though. Good Master, Attenuator, low watts, etc?

    JVM-1watt head into either a 2x12 or 4x10 cab. These were limited production 50th anniversary amps, and were/are pricey. But the sound is excellent at reasonable volume. I have the JVM1c combo, but play it through a 4x10 cab. Louder than you would think for 1 watt.

    I quit trying last night... (telecaster content)

    Please give us details. I used to have a Strings and Things guitar with that body shape, and have been looking for a source for that body. Where did you get that guitar?

    Owning Both a PRS CU 24 and CE 24

    Be careful. If you get a good old CE-24, you may find your Cu-24 to be very expendable. I’ve had both, and much prefer the CE.

    12 vs. 14 frets

    I have two 12-fret acoustics now, and have become a convert. My 14-fret acoustic feels “long” now. I play lots of blues leads up the neck, and don’t feel restricted at all. The 12-fret is more comfortable, feels faster, and sounds better to me. I play a lot of finger style. Small body and...

    Love the tele tone, not the guitar. Alternative?

    St. Blues makes a model that is like a Telecaster with a LP Jr or Nighthawk body shape. I had an original Strings and Things Bluescaster, and foolishly let it go. Great design. I wish I could find where to buy a body in that configuration.

    DGT or 335

    Get an ES-345 with the veritone circuitry. You will have all the versatility you will ever need. (More than the DGT I owned)
