Re: Momentary lapse of reason: Squier Paranormal Offset Tele in Shell Pink

Yeah, "gritty" is a pretty good description. They don't have the same smoothness as the ones on my Fender Jags (or my Squier Bass VI for that matter). A couple of them have some play in them before they catch too. I've not been bothered to swap them out tbh as they're perfectly functional ...

Re: Wah

I finally got round to buying a wah - went for the Vox V845 Noice! it has a lot less hiss than the Crybaby I used to have had. My Crybaby (bought new c1991 - no idea what more recent ones are like) is noisy as fuck. Never used to bother me back in the day but these days I generally stick with my Bo...

Re: New paranormal baritone colors. Oxblood and puke green

I got a Epiphone Les Paul II doing fuck all. If I got it setup with Mammoth Slinkies it'd be same sorta vibe as these? Did this with an Epiphone Dot and some Chrome 13s but never got on with it tbh. Feel was off and had a lot of tuning issues around the lower frets even though it intonated fine at ...

Re: How often do you change your strings?

I basically just change them when they break. They didn't break This is pretty much me tbh. I very rarely break strings. So I never really change them unless I fancy a change in gauge or to go from flats to rounds or vice versa. I probably should change them more often than I do but I doubt I'd eve...
