    If it's red- gotta be fiesta ( or Tahitian); am I right?

    Fiesta is very cool but like many others have posted, I’m partial to candy apple...matching headstock is a plus too:

    What 'ya playing lately?

    I’ve been playing this one a lot lately. It is a Swiss knife guitar for sure with these split DATron pickups from TV Jones. Plays so easily that I had to put 11s on just to get a little “fight” out of it.

    Straight bar bridges-intontation issue?

    I was worried at first about a bar bridge not being able to intonate properly on a Gretsch Penguin I was buying online. That fear was not realized as it actually is my most in tune guitar throughout the entire neck.

    Schecter love?

    I had an Ultra III a few years back and thought it was great. Sounded nice and was a quality piece. Ended up selling as it weighed a ton and the volume drop switching from humbucker to single coil was severe. I’d love to give the new foil covered model a go.

    James Trussart Guitars in general

    I’ve had a few, Steelcaster Deluxe and Steeltops but ultimately moved on. I bought them for their looks and sold them because they didn’t have the organic tones I prefer from wood guitars. Lesson that took 3 purchases to learn because they look so damn cool lol.

    Teye Guitars Owners (and Aficionados) Club

    Hi Teye! I upgraded my La Perla to Mojo from Mood a few years ago and I’m still pleased with it. I’m curious if the Juju is even better? I’m open to self installing the circuit but will that entail “messing “ with the black box guts and voiding any Nashville warranty work? Sorry things have...

    Has anyone tried both the Mood circuit & the Mojo in a direct comparison on Teye Guitars?

    Hi Teye! I had my La Perla upgraded to the Mojo and I’m very pleased with the results. I am open to a self install circuit that’s even better however, I’m concerned that would void any warranty? Would the install involve “messing around” with the black box?

    2020 Epiphone Les Paul Modern, what do you think?

    In my experience, I’ve spent (wasted) a lot of money on guitars that were “just as good as a Gibson” or “Les Paul slayers”....nothing fully scratched that itch until I got a proper Gibson Les Paul. Do yourself a favor and save up to get the real thing. You’ll be chasing your tail until you do...

    An electric guitar you never should have sold.

    My response is always the same in these threads. Gibson Johnny A. #82, part of the Roadworn Auction (branded into the back headstock). Loaded it with Wolfetone Dr. V pickups. Biggest guitar regret ever:
