    Haven't heard of the fuzz, but I'm really digging my Chicken. In fact, I sold my Verbzilla and used that money to buy a Hellatone 30, which I'm gonna audition in my 5e3 clone. As for the show, I didn't find my dream Tele, nor did anything else catch my fancy, but I did pick up a new wiring assembly for my Les Paul from Mojo. They were offering a pretty good show discount. It's in there now, and I swear the guitar sounds more alive. Probably all in my head.

    Clips on that sound good too.

    Service has been great. I bought it on ebay from the builder. Within an hour I had an email saying the pedal would ship today and he'd be in touch with the delivery confirmation number. Shortly thereafter, he emailed the number. Very cool.

    I'm stoked to try this fuzz....and bet it would sound killer into that vibe.

    Anyone else here with a Dano U1?

    If so, would you be willing to make a tracing of the pickguard? Mine is missing and I'd like to make one for it. PM me, OK? Thanks.

    Ahhh....between the Creston Lapsteel, the Spaghetti Western Fuzz, the Danelectro, pedal steel talk, more talk of the Spring Chicken...and even the Creston chalk my GAS list is growing. :crazy

    No U1.. There was a thread of danos in the guitar part of the forum where someone might have one. If it sounds half as good as my 3012, you will be very pleased. Loves the Fuzz!

    Definitely. Sadly most of my gas is expensive and won't be happening for quite some time I'm afraid.

    Its crazy how much farther out these myths get every year. Snopes probably didn't even take this one seriously.


    Back to music I've been lacking alot in the inspiration dept. lately and I found a 4 cd set by the Prague Philharmonic of film scores from old westerns. As much as I love country/americana music I'm not sure it does as good of a job capturing that open country vibe as those old orchestra scores do. Anyway if you're looking for something different its a good change. I've always tried to capture less of a country music feel with my music as I have the feeling of the openness and ruggedness of the American west. Somewhat like Calexico but in a less desert sort of way.

    i e-mailed creston explaining why i have to part with this guitar.

    i'm completely broke and i'm moving to kansas for 2 months this summer to do a recording internship.

    i'm down to 1 amp, 1 pedal, and my acoustic.

    :cry:

    Wow. You never see Crestons for re-sale. Sorry for you loss, curehardy!! I'd seriously consider multiple trips to the sperm bank and blood bank before selling this!! (But good luck with your recording internship!).

    :cry:

    Who here needs a B-Bender? Grant? Erksin?
