My list, in no particular order:
I have to also recognize Bill Collings, as my token acoustic builder
(I own superb guitars from several other small builders, too; and I hated to leave them out. Narrowing it down to five is an...
:pI had the opportunity to meet Scott at NAMM last week, and spent about 15 minutes in an isolation booth, playing the Santa Cruz model he had on display. Scott is a super cool, gracious guy, and was very generous with his time, which was much in demand. I am no stranger to Scott's guitars -...
Does anyone know how I can register for the Tom Anderson Forum? It's telling me the admins have closed registration. I just bought my second TA, and would really like to converse with the folks on that forum.
Ya'll aren't making this any easier; I've been seriously eyeballing a TA Raven, and trying to weighing a purchase vs. getting a second Grosh Eletrajet.
Tough call, especially since I don't have access to a Raven in order to try one. I'm considering just buying one via the internet, from a...
My Tyler Burning Water is my wife's favorite of my 15 or so electrics, and that's true testimony from a non-musican.
What I know is that is has the best guitar neck I've ever handled; don't know how they do it, but the neck is to die for.
As for the headstock, I think it's kind of cheesy...
After quite a long wait, I got my Ron Ellis pickups a few months ago. I just got around to installing the strat set, but so far it's VERY impressive. Still a bit early to offer any kind of definitive review, as I'm still feeling them out.
I ordered two Tele sets, but sold my second tele by...
Nice looking axe, but I'm thrilled with my Electrajet.
Why do (any) builders insist on placing the pickup selector switch directly under where the whammy bar hangs? Arrrrr, that drives me nuts. PRS ruined a great design when they did that to the Custom 24.
Just heard from Ron a few weeks ago, it took him about a few weeks to respond, but that's understandable with all he's got on his plate. I have spoken with him via phone in the past, and you'd be hard pressed to find a more polite, humble, and gracious guy.
Despite being a huge Grosh flag waver, and owning both an RC and a TC, I was surprised to find that I didn't care for the EJ.
I bought a used one, and it lasted one gig before I sold it. I didn't like the offset body shape at all, it felt like it shifted the entire guitar to the left when I...
Penny, my ash T-bone is a killer guitar; light, resonant, and pretty much bombproof. Not like anyone's going to notice if I put a ding in it. I have a set of Barden's in it right now, but have a set of Ron Ellis pickups on order which are going in it.
That's exactly my situation. However, after several weeks, and listings here, Birds and Moons, Grosh Forum, and Z Talk, my PRS isn't moving. Barely even any nibbles.
I was weak - broke down and got an EJ, even though I've still got the PRS. Found a steal on a used one at Mass Street Music...
