Topic: Differences in various telecasters

I shopped for some time for my Tele as prices can be ridiculous for them these days. The American Deluxe definately looks sweet and the Nashville model with the center pick-up could be especially cool for getting even more sounds from them (it intrigued me anyway). I decided that a Mex was out of th...

Good plugs and good shielding are important, not brand names. Neutrik makes good plugs as others have mentioned but I wouldn't limit myself to those as they are quite expensive. Look for cables with as close to 100% coverage, braided shielding as you can find. Some also have additional foil shieldin...

That is what I have been looking at on-line. I just liked the name! I am concerned that the name might be the only thing that's cool about it though!

I thought I was one of the only suckers with that CD! I haven't listened to it in years. Not bad really, definately a different take on the well worn "alternative" sound.

Hi Chris, The Rockerverb units tank may be a "folded spring" design. Those have the springs in a Z pattern instead of in a long line, which does save space. They are also claimed to be less "boingy" and so supply a more natural hall effect. That would account for the size difference. As for the leve...

A loose tube will cause drop-outs as will dirty contacts. The tube socket has spring tensioned grips that hold the tube pins and when those are bent (someone forcing a tube in at the wrong angle), then they can make poor contact. These pins can also carry lethal voltages around 400vac, so use a wood...

Their "first?" Lp, "Reign in Blood" was very cool. I remember hearing that at a rockin', local bar between sets and asking "Who is that?", and I generally HATE metal stuff.

Any interesting mods to share or definate disasters as well? I know many of you will think of an Orange mod as blasphamy (I'm skeptical too) but there are a lot of guys who are quite brave at such endeavors also. I am really new to guitar stuff even though I have hung around with players for years. ...

I have always loved the sound of a great guitar in the hands of a talented player and just about any well built and set-up guitar can do that. That said, my favorite sounds have come from Les Pauls (played through Orange amplifiers, of course!). I have an old friend who has had a classic SG for as l...
