It's a Custom Shop Limited Edition made for Europe only, I believe, in 2000. I bought it new last year.

Nice picture Hipolitho!

Is that an ad30 or ad140 you have there?
The tele, is it a '52RI?

Tibor, I've never saw inside of an Orange combo before. Thanks for showing. It looks like the amp itself would fit in a head sleeve, is it true?

Then you could have the option replace the amp with any other Orange amp, right?

Yes David - just got it a couple months ago, thank you. Forgot to post anything about it here...I admit it - I'm a Thorn Junkie of the worst type! LOL!

The tone for that guitar is quite excellent. The combination of alder body (maple cap), maple neck and Blackwood fretboard gives it a very huge sound. Ton of low end and lots of sparkle too. Not as mid-rangey as most guitars of that shape. There are a few places on the neck that behave like no guitar I've heard before--you hit the note and it will acoustically turn into a harmonic! E.g., hit the G on the B-string will turn into the harmonic an octave up. Amplify it and it's quite spectacular--even clean it will start to feedback! There are a few places like that on the neck.

The pickup selections make it unique in my "collection". Ron suggested the neck pickup parallel coils setting. I'd never heard that done before but it's quite excellent. Sounds like a somewhat fatter single coil...yet it's humbucking. I also really dig the setting with just the two outermost coils; very spunkity/plunkity and great for clean country-style stuff. And it still has the "classic" settings of the typical 2-humbucker guitar (n, n+b, b). So it's quite versatile.

jep...
The Combo is only a head in a 2x12 cab... but for service you need to unscrew 13 screws...not 4 like in a head... i changed the Head and the top amp last year because in my ears the "combo"-amp had more bass...but the diffrence like hearing grass grow...

Thank you professor - yes, the body is made from Koa wood. I was at Ron's shop today and saw a guitar that he is making someone from a solid piece of koa; the whole guitar (body) is one piece of incredibly gorgeous koa. Has a braz-rosewood neck. Absolutely gorgeous koa...you can easily see the gorgeous Hawaiian sun in that piece of wood!
