Edit: Teles all the way for me, Mike! Far too many strats hanging around last time. I felt quite, quite faint.




Agree bring your tele Mike! I think we should bring quite a range of everything if we can. All guitars are different any many of us have changed pups etc so it's great to try variations different set ups etc.

Alan, I think it would also be nice to try a few US. I haven't played many Gibsons for quite a few years so if you can carry them bring those as well.... and I've never played a Ric

Which one?

This one I brought before?



Or this one I didn't - you played this one Dave, before John sent it to me.



I was thinking it would be nice to get an even bigger selection of Goldies together than last time. We managed 8 before (or was one of them a Bacchus?), & it would be nice to get more than 8 this time.

What is an LSS100? LP with P90s? Gotta pic guv'nor?


I'll take some now - coincidentally it's sat on my lap and cranked up!

Les paul special. This one's MIJ, black, bone nut, steel head mini grovers, wrap around aluminium bridge. Can't tell if it's SEB or not but I suspect it is as the treble side of the neck is perfectly flush with the body, something I've only seen on the Korean models and the SEB JP ones.

I guess a comparison between a good Gibson LP & various Tokais would be cool too.


Would be, but I don't own a good standard one any more. I sometimes think I never did!

Just the "junior lite" (gibson-speak, "special double cut with fancy inlays" to you and me) and 339 left now from the Gibson stable. The stock P100s were replaced with Bareknuckles. Pic here:

I wouldn't mind seeing your ES again, though I wasn't planning on bringing mine.


Okie dokie, will bring that.

Quote:
As for Teles, I don't recall you showing any interest in my TE70 last time!


Are you kidding? I was trying to get you to sell it to me for over an hour! I think I even offered to swap my springy for it at one point (bit too many guinnesses maybe...)

Loved the feel of it and it sounded amazing through your Cornell.

Quote:
And the reason you felt faint was that your ears were ringing from the noise you made with all those LPs!.



Pfft, that was with John's attenuator in full flow... you should hear the unholy racket I make nowadays

Is your mate Adrian coming?


Haven't told him yet - I'll text him now!

339? Is that the new slightly smaller-bodied 335 you got a few months back? That's possibly the most interesting of all, actually, something significantly different.

Yep, that's the one. Can't bring too many - tiny car! - so I'll wait for the most requested. Might have to be between the ES and the 339 though!

Re: the LSS, the camera battery is dead, and rather than do a horrible iPhone pic I'll go and find the adaptor...

Given the choice I'd prefer the 339.

Mike, guess I'd like to try the Bacchus Tele again especially now you've fitted the P90 in the bridge position.

Ok, except it's a Tokai & the P90 is in the neck position!

Have you had a beer or two Dave?

Good to see we're getting fired up for this. My vote goes for the ST100 with P90 too, I had it in my hands much too briefly, and the P90 in the NECK position is something I must try. along with the Vibroverb! I always been dissapointed with Fender amps, apart from the bassman, but that looks so nice it must sound good too!

I'm afraid I will miss this one, I don't get home from Canada until the 27th I hope I can make one eventually.

I can bring my 03 Rickenbacker 620 for Dave to have a go and save space in Alan's car.
