I think it's more the case that guitar magazines have been replaced by YouTube pitch men.
Why wait a couple of months to read about a bit of...
Fuzz, particularly Tonebender MKII types, love the Beck, Page, Townshend tones that I grew up listening to.
Go back and forward between the Ramble Fx Twin Bender and the MXR Variac Fuzz, both great in my opinion.
EB was my string choice for thirty plus years, when I started playing I tried all the brands in the local shop and ended up liking Slinkies best....
My surf green parts tele, all I really need I think.
Check out the Vitoos Iso power supplies, supposedly the same as Hatley Benton for a bit less cost.

Pawn shop Telecaster
Change first name to "Lighting Boy", job done!
Another vote for 2013, big neck, no weight relief, traditional wiring, no OTT flamed top.

Compressed country Tele DR sums up my fave clean tone at the moment.

I only started my journey down the Fuzz rabbit hole a couple of years ago so my collection is still fairly modest.
Ramble Fx Twin Bender...
No OD or distortion.
Pedals are fine, compressor, modulation, delay, reverb etc

In an interview I recall, he referred to the tape deck as his mate and he liked having it on stage so I'm thinking 50% preamp, 50% security...
Love the look of the Ramble Fx Twin Bender.
