They aren't awful but they're pretty one dimensional. They do an in your face rock tone pretty well but they don't clean up well. Backed off a bit they just are kind of there. Pretty bland IOW. I have 57 Classics in two other guitars which I really like but I dont need three. So we'll see...
I bought my first Gibson, a 2013 Std prob six years ago. After the new car smell wore off I decided I really didn't like The sound as much as I thought I did. So it sits off in the corner by itself a lot.
So before I go through the pickup swap rabbit hole I decided to follow my own advice about...
Mesa makes good stuff for sure. They take a bit of dialing in though. You get them about 90 percent dialed in fairly easily but the last little bit can take some small twists. But worth it when you get there
I have a Rectoverb 10/25 that I got two or three years ago
I just got a MarkV 25 about two months ago
I run a Peavey 1-12 cab with a V 30 for the Recto. Originally bought the closed back Thiele for it. Bad move
The Mark V has a 23 inch wide body Mesa cab. That one I really like
My latest Mesa along with the cab was just slightly less than one of myLPs. The HK I'm about to start getting the money together for, including cab and footswitch will about the same as a new Strat. All in all my amps and guitars are pretty equal price wise depending on which ones I pick
Decided to switch straps on the Tele. The solid one is nice and comfortable but the Levy strap does look nice. Originally bought for a Les Paul but the strap knobs are too small. After I almost dropped the LP that strap went in the closet for a few years
Way long ago the best stereo I ever had was a 50 watt Kenwood system. Sounded pretty great
Now I have a couple of Sony 5.1.1 setups. Those are freaking sweet, especially with 5.1 surround. No turntable though. But plenty of vinyl with no space for a turntable. I keep telling myself I'm just...
I keep my work boots in my trunk. One morning while putting them on I set my phone on the bumper. I pick somebody up that lives about 15 minutes away and I take some higher speed roads with turns and bumps to get there. Pulled up and realized my phone wasn't on the dash holder. It stayed on my...
Glad you found one that you've bonded with. The fact that you made it yourself is the cherry on top
But I'd wait awhile before I started dumping my other guitars. Let the new car smell wear off then see where you are
