A question for acoustic guitar snobs

How do you describe the sound of this Gibson? I love it, seems like a special one. To me it sounds dry , like an old martin (my frame of reference is limited), like a 70yo Gibson I guess... There's something buttery about the attack, but probably the player's skill there. I really cannot tell the di...

Re: Acoustic saddle shims (or new saddle)

I tried some plastic and its tipped the bridge way far forward, so I took it out. Hmm, needs to be matching the bone and glued on eh?

So anyway higher action is the way to go, where can I find a new saddle or two? I think it's 1/8" width.

Re: Acoustic saddle shims

I guess I could make some out of plastic or card, but checking if anyone has any proper spare wood shims You don't want to do that, get a decent bone saddle blank or one of the tusq / ivoroid ones, then file it to the right height. make sure it is perfectly flat underneath. Or get a luthier to do i...

Re: Anyone here play Chet Atkins?

Just an update I guess. I've been working on after you've gone (paul yandell's arrangement) and it's coming along well, much faster than the others. I can finally get some satisfaction from playing through an entire piece. Probably the best I can recommend for starting out with this style. https://f...

Harmonic tremolo

Does anyone have much experience with this sound? I found the locally made Big noise Golden syrup pedal that looks like good value https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su-NPF0sgPY Other pedals like earthquaker seem to be a bit too phasey, but I guess you could dial that out. What other options do we have...

wanted: brass tele saddles

Asking here because guitarparts.nz is out of stock I got a set of wilkinson compensated saddles, but the compensation is too much. Seems they would be spot on for only 10-42, as some have reported on the internet. Big sigh but not that big a deal I guess. Does anyone have any other saddles to spare?...

Re: SORTED: Strymon Iridium

Definitely load up some stereo IRs it's awesome! Any particular recommendations? ah I mean different IRs for L/R channels I just use random free stuff, but I'm thinking of buying OwnHammer's collection to gain access to the individual files (stock with Iridium but cannot be modified) playing solo e...

Re: Stock Gibson Pickups - A potted history

Players at home want that sound easily, a high output pickup gets more juice out of your gear whatever it may be. But, here in 2021 I think that's shifting. Thanks for the reply. Yeah, seems you are spot on here. I also think the guitar renaissance among zoomers on instagram and the rest on youtube...
