    Just picked up a chambered studio elite with the mid boost circuit and 3 Suhr V60LP single coils. Should arrive late next week.

    What should I expect? Strat on steroids? Are Tylers super resonant? How long before the headstock grows on you?

    The hollow Tyler Retros are killer.

    They work great for rock, pop, or country.

    Ultra resonant and tone for days!

    I love that headstock. It definitely grows on you.

    I especially love the way he slightly scallops the edges of the fretboard. I think you'll love the guitar.

    Um....wouldn't you ask this question before you purchased the guitar? :confused:

    Well, actually I spoke with Ed DeGenaro and fully know what to expect. I just figured you guys could help to stroke my GAS for a couple of days until it get here. :rotflmao

    Don, I got my first chambered Tyler Classic last week and promptly headed out of town for the weekend. As soon as I got home today I fired it up through my Rambler and spent the last hour with nothing but the guitar, cable and amp. I just keep thinking what a wonderful twist this guitar is on a traditional design. The neck feels marvelous and the guitar is light and balanced. The tones certainly have a familiar vintage vibe, but with a resonance and acoustic characteristic that adds another dimension. As you might expect, the chambered body lacks the punch of a solid chunk of wood. (Don't expect a veggie burger to taste like ground chuck.) But it is a wonderful guitar and I look forward to firing it up at louder volumes to see how it responds in that environment. My guess is that it will excel.

    Do you have the mid boost in yours? How about a picture?
