    Warmoth Neck Questions

    The 59 is by far my favorite Warmoth neck carve (I have them on a few partscasters). The Fatback is noticeably bigger, similar to some of the chunkier offerings on Gibson 57/58 reissue Les Pauls, or the original necks on the Jeff Beck Strats. I would prefer the Fatbacks to the skinny...

    Have you played with any "famous" musicians?

    I've played with Brian a whole bunch...and he's pretty damn famous around here, I'd say. :dude

    P90s: Staple vs Pole?

    While their footprint is the same (meaning they fit in the same sized cavity), the P90 and the Alnico 5 Staple are different sounding pickups. The staple has a sound that could be described as a more hi-fi version of a P90...a bit more clarity and high end sparkle. This makes it a nice option...

    Setup slide guitar

    As opposed to raising the action a whole bunch, I would just go up a gauge in string size. And as stated above, find a slide that facilitates a light touch (this will actually be a combination of the slide itself, and your technique...mostly technique I'd say). For me, the action is a delicate...

    Does a Les Paul just make everything sound better?

    Talking shop with one of my band mates (we both play in multiple bands). The subject came around to my Les Paul. He said, "I've seen pics of you playing it, but you've never brought it to one of our gigs." I told him it's because that guitar is a sonic steamroller. It just dominates so much of...

    Trying out Lollar Imperials in my R8

    I've got a set of Low Wind Imperials in my R8. I've found many of the same things as you. Not brash like the BBs. All the classic LP tones can be coaxed out of them, and I can wrangle some quasi tele tones out of there as well. I really like the way they clean up when you roll back the volume...

    what is the secret to perfect tone?

    I think I'd be more likely to ask myself, "What Would DAVE Friedman Do?

    Amps without reverb....

    Most of my amps don't have reverb. I have a Strymon Flint that fixes that issue quite well. If I'm running into an amp with an effects loop, I'll put the reverb in there. I have no issues with running into the front end though (some of my amps, I don't have a choice anyway). I tend to run my...
