Ok ill bite.

my favorite guitar is my 1971 LP Custom
P-90 and an Alnico V and solid mahogany





Ive never heard a guitar with more "thwack" to it in my life.... but also suuuuuuper super smooth.

The tone is coming from;
1983 JCM800 Twin Channel
1971 JMP50 with the tag still on the chassis from the day it rolled off the production line

Any thoughts on either of these??
The DLS gets lots of rave reviews, and while I don't own one, I have Catalinbread's Formula #5. Super high quality pedal, my only knock on it is the power input is on the side, which is a little annoying for a pedal board. No comments on the plexitone.

Have you looked at Wampler's stuff? He makes GREAT pedals. Check out the Plextortion if you get bored. :)

Just watched a few videos of the Plextortion...looks great, but I like the DLS the best I think...may have to try one.

Would asking what strings you guys use be like starting an oil thread?

Don't want to cause any discombobulation so if is tell me to and I'll understand!

I'm dumb, but I ain't that dumb.

I use the Slinkys on my electric too, but I really like the John Pearse 80/30 Phosphor Bronze on my acoustics.

I currently use D'Addario Nickle Wound XL Regular Light Gauge (.010's) on my Les Paul's. My Strat has Ernie Ball Regular Slinky .009's.

Curt Mangan. Really small company with really tight quality control. He worked for EB for 18 years before starting his own company. They'll even do custom gauge sets for you if you buy in 10 packs.

What oil do you use to lube your strings?

I've always wanted a Les Paul Standard in Heritage Cherry Sunburst though. It's an iconic guitar for me. Mine is a 2012 Standard Premium Plus. After only 4 months I decided I didn't care for the pickups and spent a month researching what was out there. I went with a small wider from the MLP forum. He built them and I had them later that week. They're PAF clones. The neck has a Alinco II magnet and the bridge has an Alinco IV. They sound really nice compared to the Alinco V's the BBPro's had. They were too bright and harsh for my taste. The neck has a really nice bluesy sound to it while the bridge has a Crossroads-like sound.

I also changed out the tiny ceramic .022uf capacitors for the same value but paper-in-oil from Tone Factory. Much smoother when rolled down. Replaced the amber top hats with reflectors. The guitar already has Grover locking tuner heads and tone-pros locking bridge and stop bar. I might change them out for Faber or Callaham. The guitar still retains Gibson's Fat Taps, phase and bridge bypass features.

I've been looking at Ebony Customs but I think I'd like a '55 Gold Top.
Original or re-issue?

Can't afford an original. Although, the '55's have been discontinued and are getting harder to find new. Everyone wants that Gibson Denim jacket that comes with it I guess. I might have to settle for a '57.



The new Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite is also tempting. I wish it had a Ebony or Richlite fingerboard though. http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Elec...stom-Lite.aspx

Depends on the guitar...a few remain tuned down 1/2 step with big fatties on them...for the most part, whatever is on sale.

Speaking of Bass....I have always wanted one of these, but never have got to touch one in person.
