Oh dear


Recommended Posts

I bought one and was so impressed by how much more tone I had after fitting it I bought another two ! ! ! ! !

My guitar is so resonant and bursting with even more tone that, unplugged, it can now be heard on the moon!

Anyway.. You should know by now that far to simple an answer for most guitarists...


Yes, I love "I only like the sound of a guitar going straight into a tube amp!!" followed by "I put a bone nut and aluminum stop bar on my Les Paul to get that killer sustain!!".


Why not try a good compressor?


"Compressors suck man! I'm all about dynamics! Haven't you read that irrelevant Loudness Wars thing?"



Guitar players are silly.

I don't even know what that means. Is it like when I get an ice cream cone and the person behind the counter scooped my raspberry chocolate swirl ice cream out of the bin?


Right? I think the single stupidest word in the "lexicon of tone" has to be "Creamy". How in the actual FK is a sound "creamy"? Do you have to wipe off you ears after listening to it? Was a cow involved?


When I was making pickups it was amazing to read the gibberish people would send me to interpret.\



This was taped to my shop wall till the flood took it down.

Well according to them all guitars should be neck throughs in order for a guitar to sustain properly... which kind of says all I need to know about them.




What we want here is a nice pic of an old, original Travis Bean 1000 or 1500; not just a neck through, but a solid aluminium billet with wooden wings.


No increase in sustain possible IMO.....a tiny amount of metallic resonance perhaps? Not as much as a full set of Strat springs though.
