Re: Pre CBS custom colours

Came in to recommend Ocean Turquoise as it does a lot of the things mentioned above, but just learned Fender didn't start using it til 1965.

Re: I can see by what you carry

While I still maintain that the shimmy and shake from the long string length is all part of the fun of the baritone experience, that certainly sondz kool.

Also, I have that t-shirt in the inverse colourway.

Re: NGD - now we are (nearly) 50

All the SG Classics are. They're the ones with "Classic" written on the trussrod cover. They've recently done some variations on "SG Standard P90", and I can't vouch for those.

I'm setting up the tuneomatic on my LP, and while I normally slam the tailpiece for maximum sustain, I caught myself thinking "hang on: will this mess with my compliance?".

Re: NGD - now we are (nearly) 50

Missed this bit... SGs are great, but I’ve struggled with finding any that have a big enough neck. Not a slim taper fan in the slightest. It's why I always disliked SGs (see my "Oh, it's good enough for Kelly Jones but not for you?" farrago), but it was a MIJ Tokai SG that made me first di...

On Tokais, MIK ones have three-screw trussrod covers, MIJ have two-screw.

Was that the doublecut? I've never had a proper Slasher LP.

Thanks all.

Through my OTT Vibrochamp/Princeton stereo setup.

Gav: SGs are lovely. I think I've had more SGs than anything else.

Nick - that's nice, but it's a MIK one. MIJ Tokais are where it's at baby.

NGD - now we are (nearly) 50

We all knew this day would come lads. I hope this may be one of the five signs (of ageing) that will trigger Fran's return to the board. I got deliberately knocked off my bike last summer, and had to sell a chunk of kit while the court case chugged along. Eleven months later, it's over and they foun...

Re: Best Super Cheap Delay

On the other hand, there's huge value in trusting kids with things like this, letting them know this is a proper piece of equipment, that proper, professional guitarists use pedals, that that's what we're about here, and that I'm going to trust you with this. Really glad you've said this: in my exp...
