Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Had a 2013 R7.
That thing almost had a built-in booster. Just roared forced the amp into som vild tones. High and angry tones.
But it had dead spots from 12 and up.
Which annoyed me to no end.
Still, that thing was most certainly in Burst tone area if not better.
I should have learnt to love it...
Yes, I think you are totally correct! Still searching for his sound... might have found it with a 100watt Traynor from 1975 (untouched) and a Death By Audio Apocalypse.
I have tried everything.... Sola Sound Tonebender Mk1 and MK2 and a lot of other early fuzzes. Well, the search continues.
I would do the trade if it sounds good. If it's dark and murky with no treble sting I would run away. Screaming No moaners for meeeeeeeeee
You can check top buy looking in the control cavity.
To me, it does not matter what top it has or if it's a two-piece fretboard.
You want one that SOUNDS...
I did a fair amount of research and I am pretty sure Henrys ( now owned by his son Jesse) Black Beauty is a early 1968. I mean stalker warning research..... I love his broken blues style not unlike Buddy Guy or Jimmy Pages. I suppose they are accessing polyrythms when it works.
I have a question about an old strat I just bought It sounds killer and sustains like a Les Paul.
And it's been played to the end of the earth and back.
I am gonna have the frets dressed.
But should I refinish the worn through maple that everyone seems to like the look of, or can the maple...
I have had all the pedals Ocd Fulltone, Analogman King of Tone, Klon copies and etc.
And Im back to a cheap Boss DS1.
And it works fine cuts the Bass a little and you have all the Distorsion you could want.
A Moeyer Modded 1990s Fender Vibrolux and a Killer Es335.
I had great success with an R8 putting Stainless steel Abr1 Rods in.
I also had a killer R7 and changed it there also did nothing for the tone.
But I still recommend trying it!
That R8 Really took advantage of the increased sonic clearity.
