    NGD Taylor 352ce 12 string

    it is similar to detuning the oscillators on a synthesizer, the sounds thickens up because you're reducing the instances of phase cancellation, especially with the unison strings - you have to do it by ear though + it really depends what else you have going on, sometimes it is less than a cent...

    Favorite Klon Klone 2021 Edition

    my bad! they sure sound similar enough for me |tjk

    What is the favorite acoustic that you've ever played?

    waterloo ladder-braced wl-14 w/ no truss rod - unbelievably responsive + expressive, everywhere you played along the string length had a vastly different tonal shade - the v shaped neck felt so good for my preferences, especially for over the top thumb fretting - by far the best fingerstyle...

    Taylor 618e

    thanks for letting me know your experience with it - i'm definitely getting it as a strummer, i have a great fingerstyle guitar, but am a hybrid player, so if this one sounds/responds even just a bit better than most big ol'jumbos when squeezed into that roll, i'll be happy - was yours a maple...

    NGD Taylor 352ce 12 string

    old recording trick is to tune the octaves and unisons just a cent or two flat vs. the standard strings, just a massive jangling tone - in my experience the taylor 12s sound amazing that way + play ridiculously easy |tjk

    Favorite Klon Klone 2021 Edition

    the keeley oxblood can be made to sound pretty much identical to the mick side and is what it was based on |tjk

    Favorite RAT clone

    huge fan of the rat portion of my life pedal v2 - something about the low-end + the lower gain range sounds a lot better than most rodent units to me - the bass is both bigger + tighter w/ really clear high-end |tjk

    Taylor 618e

    i can hear a growl + pregnancy in the mids in the clips that is sort of the trademark love it or hate it characteristic of maple, but with more sparkle and overtones than maple usual has, which to me is perfect, that fat growl records great + cuts amazing in the mix thanks for you input - i...

    Can't love my NG

    play it + enjoy - especially if the top has nice tight grain and it sounds good the nitro will yellow/darken over time and make it appear more brown/black |tjk

    Taylor 618e

    thinking of ordering one of these sight unseen - i have a lot of experience with taylors and sj200s - the idea of a big bodied full strumming sound with crazy dynamics + headroom available, plus still sensitive enough to do fingerstyle on [unlike most sj-style guitars which the top doesn't move...

    Don't care what anybody says; the little guy in the red hat can farkin' play

    man, anybody who has bad sh#t to say about this is just an a-hole what a wonderful send-up to george + platform for prince to show-off/enjoy his induction at the same time there is a nurtured naivety in all the true greats, no matter how practiced or technical they get, they are able to tap...

    Who to Commission a Custom Esquire From?

    it seems pretty condescending to me trivialize bolt-on guitars as "even robots can make good ones" and then explain that most differences are subjective and have to do with tone + feel [no sh#t] in a forum for gear hounds, and specifically, a section to do with custom builds where buyers are...

    Who will refuse to watch "The Pedal Movie" on principle alone?

    paid to own it, plan on watching it again + wanted to support the effort that went into making it - i hope all the builders and researchers were compensated too; it was a great watch + hearing about the sense of community around builders/builders + musicians was heartwarming |tjk

    PRS SE Indonesia vs Old Korean ones?

    just prs, other companies have some more consistent indonesian lines, like the premium series from ibanez but others are even worse - it is really line/price specific though, throw the same money and training at an indonesian factory/team as a korean or japanese factory and give them a couple...
