  1. Hi

    I аm looking for a gentle аnd SEXy mаn

  2. I recently purchased a 2016 Gibson Es-Les Paul Goldtop VOS with a Bigsby B7 and I'm giving some serious thought to replacing the stock Kluson tuners with a set of Kluson Revolution Tuners. They are, quite simply, the finest tuners I have ever used in my life. Here's a link: http://www.kluson.com/revolution.html
  3. Those Smecks are BEAUTIFUL guitars. I'm a huge Jackson Browne fan, and yes he loves his Smecks. Interesting side note here: Last time I saw Jackson live (it was a couple of years ago here in Door County, Wisconsin) he had 35 guitars sitting on racks behind him. I have never seen anything like that before. And the tone he got from his guitars was amazing...........
  4. Well, FedEx delivered the pedal yesterday morning, right about the time I was getting ready to leave for an all-day boating expedition, so I didn't even get a chance to "fiddle with it" until I got back last night. As I was a bit tired, I thought it would be wise to wait until this morning to put it through it's paces, and after carefully reading the manual, went through the Pedal's setup procedures. The first thing that I noticed as a bit odd, was that even after carefully trying the "Trim" function per the instructions, I could not get the lights to flash. Even more careful reading of the manual told me that, according to Fishman, some undersaddle pickups just won't get the Trim lights to flash at all......so....OK....I guess my Baggs Element VTC is one of them. The next thing I did was to download some of the Gibson J-45 images to the pedal, and that worked just fine, even though the process wasn't entirely intuitive. Once that was done, I plugged my guitar into the pedal and the pedal into my Fender Acoustic Pro.......and YES....success! I can now control the Piezo "Quackiness" which is GREAT! I got it working.........now I think it's just a matter of tweaking the guitar, pedal and amp settings to get "My Acoustic Tone" that I want. No doubt this will take some time and patience. I also tested the Feedback control.........and it worked like a champ! This pedal has the coolest anti-feedback control I have ever seen. I'm glad I got this pedal!!!
  5. Jinder: If I were in the UK, I'd buy you a Watney's!
  6. FedEx just notified me that the Fishman Aura Spectrum DI that I ordered will be delivered here tomorrow.... I'm pretty stoked......... I'm REALLY looking forward to spending some time playing with it in order to get "MY ACOUSTIC SOUND" coming out of my Amp........I already have "MY ELECTRIC SOUND".......which is the sound of Black Blues Clubs in St. Louis in the 60's....... I've been playing since I was 8 years old in 1956, growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, when my Dad bought me my first guitar and amp.....they were Supros... I played electrics almost exclusively since then........and used to have a 14 Piece R&B Band....we were THE band in St. Louis at that time.......and I had the PRIVILEDGE of seeing Blues turn into Rhythm and Blues and Rock 'n Roll right in front of my eyes...watching Ike and Tina Turner, Chuck Berry and Albert King "do their thing". And St. Louis is where that all happened, I just happened to be there at the right time and the right place to absorb it all....... It's been my experience that you know that your tone is "Right on The Money" when people come up to you during or right after your live gig and say to you...."I have NEVER heard a guitar sound so good live and in person".......THAT is the kind of feedback you EXPECT to hear from "The Paying Customers" when you have it NAILED.
  7. Jinder, thank you. Your description is exactly what I'm looking to do........ I just want the guitar to sound like the guitar, that's all.......if that makes sense...... I want that sweet, rich, mellow and balanced tone that my Gibson J-45 puts out there....only BIGGER...... And, I might add, considering that You're putting about $2,300 into a new Gibson J-45, about $1,000 for a New Fender Acoustic Pro Amp, and about $350.00 for a Fishman Aura Spectrum DI Pedal, I'm thinking for $3,650 .....it should sound REALLY, REALLY GOOD.....not just good......don't you think so, too? I'll let you guys know when I get there...........this may take some time fiddling to tweak "THE TONE" where it's RIGHT THERE>
  8. After reading numerous reviews here and elsewhere, and talking to some guitar players whom I know and respect, I ordered a New Fishman Aura Spectrum DI Pedal for my Gibson 2016 J-45 Standard with the Baggs Element Piezo system. The pedal is on its way. The reason I bought it is that I felt I needed more control over the tone I was getting from my J-45 plugged straight into my new Fender Acoustic Pro amp......the tone was a tadd too "quacky" for me and even with the Amp's Phase Shift and Sweepable Midrange controls, I was still getting too much feedback, which, of course, is troublesome. I'm looking forward to experimenting with the new pedal when it gets here, and will report back on it after I've had a chance to play with it for a while.
  9. I have a Baggs Element VTC in my J-45, For what it's worth, it's a good pickup system....... Maybe I just should run around to some local guitar stores and try plugging into one of the Fishman Pedals to see if my ear can discern the difference....
  10. I'm just curious as to whether any of you have used or are using this pedal, and if so, what your opinion of it is. Part of the reason I ask is that I bought a Fender Acoustic Pro Amp for my 2016 Gibson J-45 Standard, and although it is a great amp, I am still having a few little problems dialing in "that Perfect tone" and also still having some feedback issues. The description of this pedal and the reviews on it intrigue me and I'm wondering if i go guitar>pedal>amp if I can expect better overall control and better tone.
  11. Bozeman is turning out some MAGNIFICENT Gibson Acoustics these days. My luthier who is exceptionally skilled, used to work for Taylor, and whom I visited yesterday to install and tweak a new saddle for my 2016 Gibson J-45, tells me that I have One Helluva Fine Guitar. He said..."You Know I love Taylors.....but they just don't have the sound quality of a fine Gibson Acoustic". I think that's saying something. I LOVE my Gibson J-45!!!
  12. dhanner623: Just out of curiosity, could you tell us specifically WHAT changes in tone you are hearing? I ask because I have a new J-45 Standard with a TUSQ saddle, too, and have been contemplating getting a Colosi vintage bone saddle for my J-45 and having my luthier install it for me.....IF the Colosi Bone saddle can give me a bigger, rounder, tighter bottom-end and more clarity and better harmonics, overall........ So any specific comments you have would be most welcomed. Thank you in advance for your help and assistance!
  13. Well, for what it's worth, I traded in (for full value) <nice to have a record of $1,000's of bucks of purchases in the datatbase, yes?> the Fender Acoustic SFX for a Fender Acoustic Pro. The Acoustic Pro has MORE of what I need.......more power, a BIGGER bottom End, more responsive dynamic control, a Tilt-back feature, more feedback control, and, importantly, since I have a Furman SPB8 Pedal Board with 12 effects on it, I can plug MY effects into the amp.....and they sound WAY better and more organic than the effects on the Fender Acoustic SFX, in my opinion. Nothing wrong with the Fender Acoustic SFX...it's a NICE amp........ The Acoustic Pro is simply more gig-worthy, methinks!~ HIGHLY recommended!
  14. About a week ago I purchased a new Fender Acoustic SFX Amp for my new Gibson J-45 Standard from Dave's Guitar Shop in Lacrosse, Wisconsin. The Fender rep was there that day (this past Saturday) as Dave's was celebrating their 35th Anniversary and there was a LOT going on in the store. I brought my new J-45 along with me to plug in and test various acoustic Amps....tried a Couple of Fishmans and they didn't really ring my bell, and since the Fender Rep walked me through the use of the Acoustic SFX amp with my guitar plugged in, and it sounded great in the store even with the noise going on all around me.....I pulled the trigger. When I got the amp home, of course, I played with it a lot, but wondered..."Should I have purchased the Fender Acoustic Pro instead?" So, I guess I am very interested in hearing from those of you who use acoustic amps as to what YOU think is the best one for your Gibson and why?
