Had a pickup gig this weekend. She wore nothing. No pedals. Zip. Naught. Zilch. Nada. No real reason... just thought I'd take a risk. Did a speaker swap a week or so ago; removed the scumback and installed a well abused celestion blue. Touch sensitivity, grind, tone... all good things were there in abundance. Had to mike the amp (standard 57) because of the size of the place but still it was delish. Pure metal and wood. Really (to my ears) sounded and responded great. We're a little three piece (bass, drums and me on guitar). Used my 58 lester with WCRs. Vol controls were all that was required. There were a few moments that I wanted to stomp on a box simply because I'm used to dancing with an OD but chose to go straight into the amp. I know some of you might smirk at my narrow-minded behavior (i.e. using no pedals) and it did feel a little risky so thought I'd post what turned into a thrill... a treat! What a ride. The best tune that nearly dropped my jaw married the paper of the speaker, the wood and strings of the guitar, my fingers, vol knob and p/u switches was in memory of elizabeth reed. Damn fun gig. Anyway, if interested in a goodsell, take a look at her with no clothes on... she's a beaut!
