5/7/05 will go down as the most incredible day in my "tone quest" history including 38 yrs. of trying to find the perfect snare drum...lol...I had decided an American Deluxe Strat (w/S-1 switching, S/S/S/ configuration) was going to fit my geetar needs...I played 27 of them in the last 4 months and found the one that incompassed what I wanted in the NECK/color/grain/RESONENCE catagories..drove to Atlanta Discount Music and bought a Clairmont Goodsell Super 17 combo (#0043)...the "17" has been on my mind for the last 2 months...here is the amazing part...I HAD 3 TO CHOOSE FROM. (#'s 42, 43, 44...all were the new, larger cabinet with Em. Private Jacks)... ADM had never had more than 2 at one time...there were 5 or 6 different players in the shop, and we played every guitar on the wall, including my Strat, thru all 3 Super 17's... general concensus had #43 (Petty???...lol) ahead by a nose for what ever reason..to me, it really stood out...can't explain why...a touch more MOJO maybe???
