    Our regular drummer always jokes with me that I have a "fleet of guitars" in my vehicle because I've been using all of my collection recently. Initially I only used my Duesey but the others were not getting any play-time and I figured if I wasn't playing them I either needed to sell them or start playing them. My next scheduled time is 08/18 and my Les Paul will be making an appearance at that time.

    I rotate for the same reason, usually way more than for a specific song or tone

    I try and do this same thing with my SG too... problem is my Suhr is just such a higher quality tone that the SG sounds really underwhelming and I end up switching back. I keep trying it though... SG is a good home guitar regardless. my 2 year old LOVES to play it (beat on it)

    I try to use my LP. It sounds good, but most of the time my Tele just fits the music better.

    I’ve had my new laptop for a month and still don’t know what kind it is. A friend sourced it for me.
    It says HP on it, and I had it a week before I touched the screen and it wiggled. I still don’t know what model it is and just learned yesterday how to turn on spell and grammar check in Word, after looking for that damn button since I got it. (Still can’t figure out the auto correct thing.)

    Imagine me trying to figure out your problem.

    It’s IN the computer....
    It’s so simple....

    That’s why I never sweat the minutia and don’t buy stuff “just for church”.
    My rig sounds just how I want it to set in any guitar setting.
    Nobody else really cares, as long as you’re in tune.

    Probably why I've been happy with just two electrics for over ten years. Sure, I get a little GAS every now and then, but it passes.
    The only guitar I have that I really don't need is my Guild acoustic 12-string, but my wife did a painting on the case when we were dating, and the guy who did the "hand modeling" (yeah yeah… second Zoolander reference this morning..;)) was a dear friend to us both and died early, so I get to see him whenever I see that case. Plus, it's a pretty sweet 12... I just don't play it much.

    Everything else gets the heck played out of it, from my LP to the ukulele.

    Our monthly worship night is about to happen and I'm dang-near on the other side of the world.
    Two hours of free-flow worship, led by two local worship leaders, and 5 local churches involved. It's pretty much intended to put the "unity" back in "community". Too often, it feels like a set is just about to go vertical when the 4-5 songs are over and it's sermon time.
    And we make praisebacon, which exactly what it sounds like.

    I’ve had the occasional Sunday where even that goes unnoticed

    I need to look into this, I’ve always wondered why the tone knob is so dramatic. It’s more like a switch, bright or dark.

    Funny thing is, I'm so conditioned to using the word here, that the normal meaning of the word didn't even occur to me.
    I seriously had no idea what I had really typed.

    I can't wait to get home and get off the innerwebz.

    I actually find the full sweep of the standard Tele tone pot / cap value useful IF you are playing with quite a lot of gain, but not so much for cleanish or overdriven sounds.

    What I did was de-solder the cap and use a set of alligator clip leads to “test drive” a bunch of cap values, which I just ordered from Radio Shack. There are big differences at the extremes, less so as you close the gap. I ended up with a .01 uF for myself, which I think is kind of a “best of both worlds.” If you have a soldering iron it’s like a $5 experiment, and if you don’t I can’t imagine a shop charging more than $25. A lot less than new pickups.

    At my old church(parents church t)he other guitarist and I had a thing for a variety of guitars and most people didn't care about any of the tonal properties but looks. My Gretsch was a favorite simply because it was Cadillac Green and drew attention.... Didn't matter how beautiful of a quilted or curly maple top a guitar had there ironically.

    My rig only made huge leaps in the past year with a job change and the blessings financially that have come with it.
    I've filled in when visiting at my old church and now I'm the wierd one that has a rack unit with big board.
    Church I play at in Lancaster 4 out of 6 of us have fairly intense boards/playing more than basic guitars so I fit in hahaha.
