I’ve had all three of these, multiples actually...I far and away prefer the Pro to the other two, to each his own. I do like the big headstock as well as the smaller however, I have an old Highway One with the 70’s headstock.
I bought a 2020 ’61 Standard also recently and it exceeded expectations straight out of the box. I have plenty of other guitars, but I played that thing exclusively for two straight months after I got it, very addictive sounding/playing guitar.
I own multiple MIJ guitars and have owned others I’ve sold...the MIJ quality has been consistently stellar for many years and decades, I don’t see why this is some new or great revelation. Prices have always been very solid on the secondary market, which reflects this perception of high quality.
I like what I’m hearing from Brett’s demo. I doubt I’ll ever part w/ my OG OC-2 (earliest Octaver version), but I could see this being a useful tool. And would also like to compare it w/ my Mooer Tender Octaver (first version also).
Thanks! Yeah, I wasn’t loving the cream colored plastics so I swapped them out for a blackout look...I actually bought this one from Adorama a few years ago when they were running the same deal, although they had other colors for the sale price as well.
I’ve been mainly a Les Paul and Strat guy for a long time, although I’ve owned multiple SG’s throughout the years...but they’re never been my go to guitar. But lately, I’m finding a new found appreciation for them...the weight, ergonomics, tone, fret access etc. Definitely a guitar nowadays that...
The Durham Crazy Horse is great and the Peppermint Fuzz also cops some of his tones very effectively. A sub octave pedal will help also as well as some delay and verb. For his earliest material and Buffalo Springfield era you’ll need some primitive fuzz, fuzzrite/maestro etc.
