  1. RIP Dusty. They say he died in his sleep. Hopefully he didn't suffer.
  2. But for the original post, Coke all the way.
  3. Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Mountain Dew.
  4. I mostly use my clean channel, slightly crunched, and my Compression Pedal for Heavier Distortion Rhythm / Leads.
  5. I prefer Coca Cola over Pepsi.
  6. Ok, still not seeing the reason. Is it for bending notes on the B String? Why just the B String?
  7. I don't get it, why would you just "bend" the B-String? Not familiar with this.
  8. I saw Molly Hatchet a few years ago. All they had was the lead singer, one guitarist, a keyboard player, a bass player and a drummer. Since they only had one guitarist, he had to cover a lot of the parts, or the keyboardist covered some of them. They were really lacking that old Molly Hatchet guitar slinging sound. It was a festival type concert and there were two stages. They were on the small stage. I watched as much as I could stand then went back to see Marshal Tucker and Charlie Daniels on the main stage. Molly Hatchet was a real disappointment, you'd think they could get more musicians with their history.
  9. Or Pick Guards On or Off.
  10. My short list is easy. I want a good Fender (Not Squire) Stratocaster (Sorry Gibson guys, me included). I have a nice Gibson Les Paul, but I want the Strat sound too. I have my eyes set on a Cherry Sunburst Maple Flame Top, Maple Fret Board, Made in Mexico, Strat. I have $285. saved up in "Guitar Center" gift cards. Someday soon, I'll bite the bullet and spend them to cover part of the costs, but then I need to add a hard-shell case, another good strap, maybe strap locks, and of course a good set-up at my favorite luthier, since I would never trust GC to do the set-up. All of this will probably total over $1,000. Ok, for all of the "Guitar Center" bashers, I'm not 100% fond of them either, I just started getting GC Gift Cards from my family, a few years ago, and I figure, let them build up with future gifts, Father's Day, Birthday, and Christmas. We have a local GC and its easy for them to go there and get Gift Cards, so I just asked them to continue doing that until I have more value to cover the costs. Not greedy, just can't justify spending money on another guitar, that will be used occasionally, since my 1st love is my Les Paul 🥰. So, since I'm not in too much of a hurry for the Strat, I'll be patient. They can never figure out what to get me, so I make it easy on them and just ask for GC Gift Cards. They insist on getting me gifts anyway, that's the way we are in my family, so why not make the best of it. 🤑 If I was using someone else's Credit Card, as suggested by the OP, I'd go for an American Deluxe Strat with the better body contours, better neck cut-away etc.
  11. You already have an acoustic. Get the 335.
  12. Thanks for sharing. Never understood why people use different gear in the studio vs. live. Seems to me you'd want to duplicate your signature as much as possible. I like his choice of strings. Same ones I have been using for years.
  13. I played a PRD once. Didn't like the neck. Can't go wrong with a Les Paul.
  14. Same here. Just be careful with your baby.😄
  15. Maybe that's the answer, but I'd go deaf with that many cabinets blasting behind me.
  16. I could understand switching between multiple amps for different tones/settings. Never understood what daisy chaining does. Do the individual heads, set at different settings, do something for the tone / volume? What do you do with the multiple amp footswitches? Again, stupid questions...
  17. Yes, but what was the reason? Did he not go through the PA? If not it would be the reason many older musicians go deaf.
  18. When you see, for example, Multiple Marshall Stacks on stage, are they all being used at the same time, daisy chained? If so, why? Do you use switches to switch between amps for different settings? Are they just for stage sound? Are they just for looks? I know this can vary depending on the band/guitarist, just wondering what the logic is. Especially if one cabinet is mic'd. and other cabinets are not.
  19. In order from Guitar to Amp (2-Pedalboards): Tuner, Acoustic Pedal, Compression Pedal (Used for Lead Boost or heavier distortion), Grunge Pedal (used for heavy distortion like Black Sabbath, Metallica, etc.) MXR EVH Phase, Harmonizer (rarely used but set for a keyboard sound) Cry-Baby Wah, Morley Volume Wah Boost Pedal (never use the Morley wah, sometimes kick on the Boost for a crunchier distortion) I use the volume pedal a lot for volume swells/ Xanadu etc.) , Chorus (almost always on, especially for RUSH), Delay, Flanger, Looper (never use), MXR 6-Band Equalizer (always on). I also have a Talk Box, but rarely use it because I don't have a PA System to run my Mic through. And an E-Bow, again rarely used. Everything through the front of my amp, my amp does not have an FX Loop. By the way, I just changed my Pick-Up Toggle Switch, on my Les Paul, from Amber to White. The amber one broke. It didn't affect my tone at all. 😂
  20. I'm just sticking with the White one from GC. It looks fine and it didn't change my tone. 😂
  21. So, while changing my strings, yesterday, my Toggle Switch Cover split in two and came off. I immediately went to my local Guitar Center and bought a new Gibson Authentic replacement. They only had White, the one that broke is Amber. No big deal, for now, it was only $4,99. and I also went on Sweetwater and reserved an Amber one. $6.99 at Sweetwater. My main question is, Why does it show up on this web page (in the All Hardware) as $21.99. Are they different? Does Guitar Center and Sweetwater not have real Gibson Authentic Parts, even though they say they are? https://www.gibson.com/Gear/Hardware
  22. Don't like 'em, don't care. I would never buy a damaged guitar.
