He brought up a bunch of cool toys. We had a big jam in a big studio and used alot of new pedals..

1- Love pedal COT 50....very cool for pushing a amp a little harder with out changing the tone at all..gives a nice sweet zip to the sound. I really liked it on singles but not humbuckers..kinda farted out a little on the bass strings with the humbuckers.
2- BBE green screamer...I wound up keeping this one..very cool tubescreamer type pedal, but with way more gain and sizzle..I loved it with humbuckers and my amp with a slight crunch setting. Lots of punch and very transparent with a smooth mid spike in the EQ.
3- Boosta Grande.... great open boost with really no change in the EQ of the amp..loved the single coils alot. made the old fender sing..
3- G2D Creamtone, brian loved it so much he bought it..He said it kills about evry pedal he has..and he has about 250 pedals.
4- Fender custom shop heavy relic 69 strat..This was about the best feeling & sounding strat I have played in along long time..the fat 50's sound great and they are very quiet even under heavy OD..I liked it so much I went online and bought a surf green one.

It was a great weekend of fun & play...corky

Sounds like some real fun Corky.The Creamtone and the T rex Replica are still my two main pedals.I am looking at the VVT Fralin signature amp once again. I can't get over the Fender tone with a 15" speaker.The 15 kills!

I'm loving the those heavy relic guitars. Andy's sunburst strat and someone else's posting of some really heavily relic'd strat makes me want one.

Pedro..CCG is dead, sorry. Mars guitars bought it.

My new surf green relic is very heavy beat up, the pic dony show it well but its a heavy relic69..very beat..
I played the sunburst one last sat. night..fell in love with it..and the fat 50's sound unreal, and not very much buzz at all...
