    Catalinbread Echorec?

    I keep getting tempted by some kinda Echoplex sub, but TBH, I only use slapback and there's dozens of good pedals that will do that. Obviously there's the preamp options of that flappy big 70s denims effect but I dunno about that kinda thing.

    Epiphone Casino vs Epiphone Riviera

    Well it's a sound I love. Compared to a lot of what is meant to classic tweed distortion, it has class, coming out it's azz

    Are P90s "honky" or am I crazy?

    First four BLACK SABBATH albums. SG with P90s.

    I can’t stand……..

    Farty vintage tweed amps that have a harsher, fuzzier splattery breakup than modelling amps at their worst.

    Are P90s "honky" or am I crazy?

    Anyone try Tonerider Rebel 90 pickups? They're Alnico 2 bar magnets and boast AWG42 wire and 10,000 turns, fitted into a humbucker case. I want to like them and have them fitted on a solid body guitar. I've changed caps, fooled around with height but just can't seem to stop them sounding BRUTAL...

    Have you still got the Firefly Crossroads? Mine keeps getting picked up, nick neck and nothing wrong with the p90s

    Mondo Cortez has a Epiphone 56 Les Paul. He makes it sound righteous . I want one, red candy apple finish. Great sounding guitar with P90s. There's also options from Harley Benton that have rave reviews... But they fooled around with the shape. And wrote Harley Benton on the headstock

    These young chaps have a nice guitar sound

    Are P90s "honky" or am I crazy?

    What about the P13 thing? This could be a rabbit hole that we never escape

    Are P90s "honky" or am I crazy?

    I'm in the P90 puzzle at the moment too. With flats on my cheapo Chinese firefly semi acoustic, I can get some nice jazz and early jump blues sounds. Maybe think Scotty Moore? I got some in a solid body and boy, can they get brutal. Harsh on top. Jury's out

    Epiphone Casino vs Epiphone Riviera

    I'm guess no one has a clue about how you'd get this sound?

    G6120TG flat wounds .010-.048

    Yeah, curious about the price as I've been spending a high price on a set and using only the bottom three, as mentioned

    Recommend me an interesting overdrive, Valco-Silvertone sounding is a plus

    Catalinbread Valcoder does a good Supro amp overdrive similar to the Supro pedal. Always interested to hear ideas for budget options. Moorer Blues Mood is great

    G6120TG flat wounds .010-.048

    It's so tricky to valuate. Who's going to put a Thomastik flat on a guitar, listen to it....remove and replace with a Harley Benton equivalent to compare? I rejected D'darrio chrome's, thought they were dumb. Little while late tried Thomastiks and was converted.

    Wow, Kick out the Jams muther! Never knew these had become silly expensive. Great to see you're building this
