Yeah, this one's special. It talks to me. I've waited most of my lifetime for a humbucker guitar I felt comfortable with.

(Found a few, but the $$$ were crippling).

Re: NGD - But sadly not mine….

Picked it up today to replace the strings and played it for 3 hours instead...... I think this is a positive indicator :think: Seymour Duncan Jazz and 59: If you were a manufacturer building a copy of an iconic guitar, you'd want yours to appeal to as many people as possible. This is the pickup comb...

Re: NGD - But sadly not mine….

It's Here!!!! :D Infinite thanks to hudsonsaul and Jb for their fine efforts. We both sat in the lounge and started at each other for a while.......... It's not as red as it appears in Jb's photos. A closer inspection reveals a previous life. There's a halo of circular scratches around each strap bu...

And my bends.
Mine are adventures; I launch into them with little idea of where I'll end up.
It's safest to bend up from the fourth when you're playing a minor blues. Pretty much any microtone between there are the fifth will work :thumbup:
I use bends to correct wrong notes :rofl:

I just wish they did a tuner.
Automatically correcting any intonation problems...

Nah, I just get warm fuzzy feelings when I see all the Strymon pedals perfectly aligned on my board.
The prospect of perfectly aligned pedals is not something my board has considered.

Re: Forums have been slow, how about a 'In the mail' thread?

What's your wah proclivity? Mate, I don't have one. for years, wah was naff. Then I got a AMT Japanese Girl wah which I play with occasionally and have a bunch of ideas for, but never get round to actually using. I often feel like there's barely enough of me to hold together what I'm doing without ...

You need a Sunset. The dirt to end all dirt huh? I'm likely to stick with a Timmy and a Klone because I understand how to make them work.

New board is going to be Strymon based with contributions from dirt and EQ.

Re: Show us your pedalboard

It has dawned on me in the past week that a complete pedalboard revamp will soon be required. This is a pleasing prospect. My current one has been basically the same for 5 years and imminent freedom from the constraints of a 3 guitar band has made my imagination hit overdrive. New board is going to ...

That's a versatile piece of kit; it combines 3 functions that I never use in a stylish package! :D To be honest, I really should be using all 3. Well it's about pretty lights and sparkles for me... but ya never know, might need the actual features one day too :) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Please...

Re: Forums have been slow, how about a 'In the mail' thread?

s-l400.jpg Been dithering on this too long. Great reviews, and used by my distant cuz surnamed Wong. Be nice to get a volume pedal back on the board, just hope the wah is as good as my current one. :) That's a versatile piece of kit; it combines 3 functions that I never use in a stylish package! :D...
