    So, I'm on the prowl for a new guitar and am wondering what other Hayseed owners are using...I'm looking at a few Strats, Les Pauls, etc...Tell me what you're currently plugging in and what has made you happy! ;)

    hamers, just hamers. lol. newport pros sound fantastic through my hayseed custom. my 25th anniversary (semi-hollow) and phantom sound great too. you would be hard pressed to find a guitar that sounds bad through a hayseed, imho. what type of music do you play? that would probably be the biggest consideration.

    Heritage H535, a Muddy Waters Telecaster, and a Rickenbacker 330/12. They all work well with the amp, as did my 330/6 and Les Paul Deluxe, now sold.

    Mostly everything sounds good with the hayseed. I mostly play an SG custom, but my Ric 360 sounds incredible through it as well. My old SG jr also sounds sweet, very jangly. The only guitar I sometimes I have trouble with is my jag, the combination of between them isn't spectacular. You can dial it in ok, but there's a lot of brightness between them.

    It depends on the channel...

    The ef86 channel sounds killer with everything. I really dig humbuckers here. Sounds Marshall-esque/Bluesbreaker-style. The cut knob really works the magic here. That, and the ef86 tube sucking all the tone your guitar can deliver and moving it on with a kick!

    The top boost channel... I love a Strat here, but I have a hard time giving up the ef86 for TB...

    I really need to experiment more, but I haven't ever plugged in and not been able to get something great with a minimum of knob-twiddling. I think Teles sound great everywhere. The eq on the Hayseed is just so usable and effective. Great amp!

    Orville Les Paul (p90 in bridge) and MIJ 72 Tele Thinline (I love my japanese git-fiddles) will grace the Hayseed upon arrival. Will probably add a G&L ASAT or 52 Tele at some point. Maybe an SG, the 61 reissue style or a japanese lawsuit version.

    G&L ASAT Classic (Tele) makes it sing the best for me. Jangly on the Top Boost channel, and searing with the EF-86 (bypass) channel. Jumper the two and, oh lordy, I get goosebumps.

    Muddy Waters Telecaster (modified) and Heritage H535. Both sound great but I'm really liking the Tele through the amp right now.
