    Great choice! The neck pickup split gets some great sounds, combine it with the bridge on full and you're close to heaven. Enjoy!

    Good choice! One of my best friends is a Les Paul fanatic and brings a few over almost every weekend to A/B them with my 245 (older nitro model with a one-piece bridge and 57/08 pickups). His...

    I don't have any really good photos of this one, but it's the guitar non-musicians always told me sounded the best after gigs at the local bars, and my Gibson loving friends bring over their LP's to...

    What amp are you using, and is it loud enough? DG isn't exactly 'whisper quiet' when he plays.

    There shouldn't be a lack of 'punch' from the pickups - Is the guitar absorbing a little extra...

    I've found the OCD to be pretty transparent as well, just dial the gain down and the volume up. The Timmy is another option. I haven't tried the TC Electronic Spark booster, but I've read good things...

    Thanks, it's my "Shawn's Specs" guitar. I don't make decisions well, so I just went with his recommendations when I ordered it.

    I don't actually have any decent pics of this one, somehow... mine is a 10-top with the IRW and 53/10's. I'd probably prefer the 57/08's but since the 53/10's are hard to come by these days, I'll...

    I have 11's on mine, but mostly out of laziness - I would have to find my screwdriver if I want to change string gauges. Most of my guitars have 10's (a 245 has 11's as well) - I've tried a lot of...

    The old guy likes to do damage in Houston. I think it's downright rude.

    This just screams "DGT" to me. You might want to change the strings down to 10's for some of the faster music in there, but the DGT excels at Classic Rock tones (among others) and with 2 volume knobs...

    The Sweet 16 can get some surprisingly full tone at a low volume if you're willing to use pedals - I found diming the master and then slowly bringing up the volume kept the most low frequencies, add...

    The volume knob closest to the bridge is for the bridge pickup, the next one, further from the neck, is the neck pickup. I think Grissom called the bridge pickup the 'money' pup or the 'business'...

    If you're using pedals, the Sweet 16 can do quite a lot at low volumes, I used that for gigging where I had to have stage volume at a minimum, trusting FoH to do everything. Master to 10, slowly...

    I don't think you can call them 408 pickups with a 5-way blade and three individual taps! I love that color, too, this guitar looks like a lot of fun to play.

    I vote McCarty for myself. Most of the time I'm playing a Sig Ltd or a DGT. I can't part with the others, but those two get most of the attention.
