I am glad to hear from some of you that your Duendes are working well in gig situations. Mine's never been out of the house -- and it does have the G12H-30. I like this speaker choice very much.
I have a Dr. Z Closed Back Cab and will have to listen to the Duende through the V-30.
To the OP: Thank you for the rundown on guitars:
As others have noted, taking my advice might put you on a slow road to the courthouse.
If that were my collection, I would consider losing one LP. But nothing else.
And then she could never mention it again.
But better to have a frank, open, and...
I believe it took a beefy capacitor before the neck pickup in very early Telecasters/Broadcasters had that bass sound that Leo thought musicians of the day would find appealing -- ala the pickup blend wiring scheme found in early Teles/Broadcasters and recreated in Fender's CS Time Machine...
What does she have a lot of that she doesn't need.
But I guess you can't go there. I would. But I'm single and don't suffer fools gladly. Hope you guys work it all out.]
How many guitars do you have, btw.
Have five amps that pretty much cover Fender for me.
Also have a Z Closed-Back Cab V-30 in need of a head.
Anything new or used for under $650 that would give me some great tone (but very different from Fender) for blues kinda stuff in the living room. Not trying to cut through the mix as much...
Yes. Very powerful image. Surely one of the most arresting here.
I would vote first for one of the several images of Peter Townshend or even Jimi Hendrix -- because they were real rock living legends and Johnny Cash was not a rock living legend but more of a country living legend -- or whatever...
I had both versions side by side in my living room for six weeks.
I could not decide on which to keep. Finally decided to keep the original version -- with the black knobs...because I liked the clean tone better. What I sacrificed was a clearly tighter B channel.
Just the fact that they...
I know what you mean about the amp not biting. The second version would definitely have more bite. And it's great with Teles.
I've heard the Duende aptly described as a tweed deluxe on steroids. Of course it shines doing blackface, too.
Versatile -- but the original Duende with its GZ34...
Have you heard of a Les Paul?
Who cares whose name is on the truss rod cover.
Better than some of the stupid names Madison Avenue bestows on cars. In the case of guitars, the signature name just makes it easier to refer to the one guitar.
If it's a good recreation of what the player is...
