    I dunno... ...I think almost the exact opposite is true. The great thing about a guitar-bass-drums format is how much sonic space is available for each instrument, and if there's too much low end on...

    Page did all kinds of crazy stuff in the studio. The solo was the Tele through one of JP's Supros, although some reports say it was just some random amp that happened to be in the studio.

    Well the marketing/illusion thing might be another chicken/egg relationship.

    There's an observable trajectory where some people's hard-won, experience-based knowledge gives rise to a widely-told...

    Nor should you. The great thing about guitar-based music is that it's still very much about having something to say and having your own sound. Despite the attempts of some to classicalize it so that...

    I do think, however, that it's a mistake to think that's all that's going on. Those guys chose those guitars over other available-at-the-time guitars for a reason. In particular, rather than play...

    That's a much trickier question than it appears on the surface.

    For one, what is "best"? Who determines it, and according to what criteria? Personally, I would love it if the concept of "best"...

    I *do* have the PAF benchmark ingrained into my head, because I have a couple of old Gibsons with PAFs. The guitars (and, I'm sure, the pickups) sound quite different from each other although there's...

    As for me: we'll see what happens when I go into the studio in a few weeks and do my new record. That may clinch the PRS' role as my "home base."

    Or not. Maybe I'm past the point where it's...

    Yeah but you're just an accidental guitar player.

    I freak out when my ear tells me it's time to play an ash-body maple-neck Stratocaster and I don't have one in the house. And my ear likes LOTS...

    I've wasted way too much time trying to have a "#1."

    With over 50 guitars in the house (6-string electrics number in the low 40s) the whole concept of a "favorite" or a "number one" is kinda...

    Here's a set of photos of what I have @ my house for guitars and guitar-like instruments. Pretty sure it's up to date. I play all of them. Some more than others though. ;)

    A large part of that sound comes from where the pickups are located under the strings, which you can't replicate with a DGT unless you add a single-coil pickup in the middle. Ever hear a Strat with...

    I agree. For me, as well, it's all about the sound, and more data is always good.



    I don't know how easy to find they are. Mine came about as the result of a lot of discussions among Craig...

    I did a quick-and-dirty iPhone video of the singlecut HB spruce yesterday. As usual with the iPhone, the midrange is overcooked and there's too much reverb, but whatever. It sorta kinda gets the idea...

    Oh, it's not so much a matter of "politically correct" as it is, "best" to me is always relative to the needs of the moment. And my needs (and what I wanna hear) are notably different from one moment...

    Best-sounding hollow PRS is easy. I only have one. Might be my favorite-sounding electric guitar overall at the moment. But I don't have any recordings of it. Yet.

    Well, Tag, as you know, I'm not much of a "best" kinda guy.

    But I'll pretend I am for the time being. Here's my best-sounding solidbody PRS. It's a Collection series I (#004) and it's stock, with...

    I totally agree.

    Those semi-hollow-with-vibrato CU22s, the one that my younger brother has? Great, great guitar. (although Jon hardly uses that one at all -- if I'd known how little he was going...

    Tag, first off, let me say how happy I am for you. Going down to Stevensville was absolutely the right thing to do, and I'm glad to hear how well it worked out for you.

    BTW it's "pomegranAte." ;)...

    I was talking about the first guitar he played in the video, Les. The one that is a LOT like yours, except that Dave's still has the wraparound one-piece bridge. Well, at least by how it sounds to me...

    So, Les, all due respect and all, but I've got to tell you, on that SG Special, the last thing in the world *I* would do would be to swap out that one-piece bridge. I think an SG Special in that...
