I'm looking for growly vintage tones for alt-country, experimental, folky rock. Guitars are Tele and Les Paul (w/ vintage PAF clones). I was going to go with a tweed deluxe clone (ceriatone) but now I am thinking an 18 watt clone or maybe a jtm45 clone. I have a cab with a greenbacks already.

Wrong. Always.

Any room for basses in this thread?

Finally got myself a P bass after being a bassist for 15 years. Felt like something I had to do, and I have no regretted it in the slightest

I play in a ska/punk band and that thing has been perfect so far. Cuts through our mix way better than my Dean. Can't wait to do some recording with it.

Not enough Lefty content on here…..7 string time. Schecter Loomis NT.

Just got this the other day…..Amazon 525$…….watch them :shhh:as they play with pricing and you can nab a sparkling deal like I did. Its even cheaper now at 466$ I see. Lower Mainland music shops would sodomize you for 1300+ for such a axe.:fu:

Yeah so I'm el84'd out. Too trebly. Where's the beef? Where's the ass? So maybe I will get a tweed deluxe. Not a lot of headroom for playing with a loud drummer but I will figure something out. Love the tones from clean to neil young at the turn of the git fiddle knobsky.

Wrong. Always.

You guys know of any good guitar techs in tri-cities or burnaby? I was going to a guy in Mental Ridge but maybe there's somebody good and more local. My gits are in need of wiring fixing and fret work. I am thinking of changing the frets on my teles and esquires from the small vintage style ones to the "medium jumbo" size that I have on my Les Paul. With that said, I have always like the vintage frets because they force me to play differently than I do with the Les Paul…which is cool.

Also wouldn't mind picking up a baritone guitar at some point.

Wrong. Always.

for blues/roots style playing through a tube combo amp. I have been ogling the Vox Tonelabs but no retailer seem to stock them. I tried out a friends Boss ME-70 and it didn't really make much of an impression. Never been a Boss pedal fanboy to begin with. I don't want to completely mask out the sound of my amp. My old Korg Toneworks AX300G seems to have bit the dust. I actually liked this pedal except no expression/volume pedal was on it. Korg and Vox are the same company I hear and that's part of why I was looking seriously at the Vox pedals. So what sez you NBR?

I'd go with a pedalboard with as much analog content as possible. I find multi-effects tend to screw with the dynamics as well as sometimes add some digital artifacts. Especially for blues/roots, I'd go with a simple, mostly analog (except maybe a digital delay or a digital plate/spring reverb pedal).

Just one mangs opinion.

Also, what kind of combo are you playing through? If it's something like a Deluxe Reverb you've got an awesome reverb and trem already. ;)

Wrong. Always.

I am playing through an original 40W fender blues deluxe, with upgraded speaker and tubes. Chorus, compression, OD/distortion, reverb and delay are all I really need. Yes I have a nice spring reverb in the amp already but the big hall is nice to access on occasion. Can you steer me towards specific make/model for analog content? Mang.

Analog reverb pedals usually mean $$$. Maxon AD-900 for example. I'd strongly suggest digital pedals. Lots to choose from there and multiple modes (including simulated analog).
