The thread is dead. Long live the thread!



Mr Watson does his surf thing:

(I was gonna say something like 'That's cool' but I just KNOW Statler and Waldorf (aka Jon R and Pete K) will chime in and say how *old* and *tired* that stuff is!):facepalm
"Statler and Waldorf"?!?! Is that another of those inside Brit jokes?
What is "old and tired" about blues guys playing surf tunes is most of 'em don't play 'em RIGHT!! I have heard more than a few mostly creditable blues gtrists play the melody to Walk Don't Run starting on the "I". The first note is the "V"!! Me, I learned to play gtr with the "Learn to play gtr with The Ventures" music minus one records.

Stringmaster, thoroughly enjoyed the kids!
They've started off right instead of backing up to get to the good stuff.

I think I figured it out. On your bookmark click properties and add"&goto=newpost" to the end of the url. That takes you to the last post you read.

Anyone know if RWRP'ing a middle Strat pu adversely affects tone? Can't honestly say if it does since I haven't played a Strat without a RWRP middle pu for quite a long time.

There's probably about eleventy-five threads I have seen on this. I had this deal once. Sounded thin. Sent back the reverse one for a regular wind/polarity. Lindy said, "I knew you wouldn't like it." Maybe search on RWRP?

All I can sat Tom is that every Strat I've had without the RWRP I preffered the tone of better in the #2 & #4 positions moreso in the #2.

Thanks Jon. Didn't realize there had been threads on this here before. I'll do a search.

Sounds like non-RWRP is the way to go. I'll do a search for more info.

Tom......a friend of mine has a cloud 9 54' goldtop and he loves it! I've spent many hrs. playing it and it's a good guitar. If I didn't already have my all-gold r6.....I'd be all over a darkback chambered r6 if I could find one. I hope your goldtop is a goodun'. Should sound great through your Louis amps!!

You can tell your wife all that "this is my last guitar" crap....but quit lyin' to us bud! Oh yeah, and if you need to keep your next guitar at my house to stay out of the dog house you are more than welcome too! :) Just kidding.......if she doesn't complain about the hot rod or the harley.....I'd imagine she doesn't care about the gear either....

Noel,


Yeah, my tongue was planted firmly in my cheek re "the last guitar". I've heard so many great comments about the chambered '54 I'm hoping they're consistent in quality and sound. Maybe it helps a little coming from the Custom Shop, maybe not. My one-off Gibson Custom Shop ES-5 Switchmaster with P-90s is one of the finest guitars I've ever had or played. OTOH, I had an L5CES that had some major issues I had to correct. We'll see, I guess.
Thanks for the offer to keep me out of the doghouse but the wife has learned over the 32 yrs we've been married to pretty much let me do my own thing with my music stuff. She knows I won't overdo it too much. But I have to admit it makes me squirm a little buying this guitar on time with the economy the way it is. But since Gibson doesn't even make the '54 LP wraptail anymore, and the chambered ones are already pretty rare, and they're getting scarce even on the internet, and Private Reserve Guitars (Yeah, I know it's MF) were down to one or two, and had a 12 mon no interest deal, and add the fact that I've been wanting a '54 LPGT wraptail for a few yrs...all this motivated me to take the plastic plunge. That's my rationalization anyway...and I'm sticking to it. :facepalm Noel, give me a call sometime.
