I'm so jazzed about this friggin guitar... it's a Suhr Classic, s/s/h, standard trem, alder body, maple neck, rosewood board. I recorded a track this afternoon using only it for the guitar parts... I tried to vary the pickup positions lots, tone control, clean, dirty, etc.

hope ya like it!

It is just the site does not host them.
So you need to go to a place like
Photobucket
Set up a free acount & put your pics there.
It is real easy & they will privde a IMG link
Then you just paste it in your message here.
Nice playing on all the clips you have at that link you provided.

One of the best clips I've heard on this site. Most are drenched in effects and goofy sounding melodys.

Nice job. What amp are you playing?

I posted this over at harmony central too... I wrote a response re: amps, etc, so I'll just re-post here:

Ok, here's the details, and I'm glad you guys like it, thanks for the kind words!

the guitar is, as I mentioned, my killer new Suhr Classic... basically a strat with 2 v60 LP singles in the neck and middle, and the DSH humbucker in the bridge. I love these pickups! the in between positions sound so clucky and sparkly it's ridiculous! The bridge pickup balances really nicely with the singles also. It has a standard trem bridge, staggered vintage style tuners, and I think a tusq nut, and it stays in tune so well. Stainless steel frets (6105).

The amp sounds are a combination of things. Lately, for home recording, I've been getting into mixing various modelers together to get the best out of all of them. I have nice amps, but gotta keep it down at home, so the modelers are the way to go for now.

The hard panned l/r tracks are a Pod (on "Double Showman" setting) with speaker sims turned off, running into my Presonus interface.... I record/mix in Logic. I used Native Instruments "Guitar Rig" as a plug in on the left guitar for SPEAKER SIMS ONLY. So in other words, it's a blend of Pod amp model with Guitar Rig speaker simulator.

The right guitar is the same Pod amp model with Logic's own amp simulator "Guitar Amp Pro" being used for speaker sim only.

The clean melody guitar panned center is the same sound as the right guitar, but more gain, and echo on the pod, and spring reverb added at the speaker simulator stage on the Guitar Amp Pro plug in.

The solo guitar is all Guitar Amp Pro... I think the model is called "Custom 40 watt" or something, and speaker sim was a dynamic mic off axis on a 2-12" closed back cab. I added Logic's tape echo plug in also.

Bass was recorded D.I. using my UA 6176 mic pre/DI/1176 compressor... everyone should own one of these, they rule.

Drums are apple loops...

Logic is a really killer program once you get the hang of it, there's so much you can do it's pretty staggering.... all on a 15" powerbook laptop... for my needs, I like it much more than Protools, allthough protools is easier to learn I think.

That's it!

Great recording! Love your style!

You've really got me going, cause I just ordered a very similar guitar to yours a month ago. Classic, same pickups. I can't wait!

Very, very nice.

I also listened to and enjoyed the 12ax7 comparisons. Thought the Groove Tubes sounded very close to the Mullard. Very interesting.

Thanks and best wishes with you new guitar.

Very nice. I really enjoyed the mixture of tones and restraint. Cool stuff!

Thanks again,

it is suprising how good the Pod XT sounds when using something else for speaker simulation, no? It opens right up and becomes very useable, I think. Guitar Rig speaker sims really make a huge difference.

The efx in Guitar Rig are pretty amazing for ambient, pad-type stuff... even some of the factory presets are great for efx stuff.

The nice comments about my playing are much appreciated and make me feel really good (hey, I'm a cancer=insecure) but the fact that everyone seems to dig the tones is really inspiring, as I think I'm at the point where I could actually record a pretty listenable CD on my laptop, using no speaker cabs/mics.

Dammit, I think I will!
