      Hey there, I was wondering what amp you're using these days.
      Have you compared the 65 DRRI to the newer 68 Custom Reverb?

      I was reading a post of yours from 2011. You swapped your C12n for a CRex in your NOS BJr.
      I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Similar circumstances: raise the volume and the trebles get pretty harsh. Adjust the tone knobs and you lose the edge.
      How did you like the change?
      Thanks for your time,

      Hey Shades, I was just wondering how your thin skin with the big dippers is going?

      Hey mate

      Hope your well. I was just wondering why you went the studio pro vs the custom reverb? I am looking at getting a Two rock and there are none in Adelaide. I have to get one from Melbourne.

      Look forward to your reply

      That's nice to hear.Do you have any video where I can hear the mayerish overdriven sound ?Or could you post something ?Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks a lot,Nick :)

      Hello there.I saw in a thread that you own a studio pro.How do you like it?I'd like to know if you can get a mayerish type of overdrive sound(like in where the light is) with a pedal,like the full drive.I got a two rock jet and loved the clean channel but I didn't like the lead channel.I couldn't get a sound that i liked out of it.I used the fulltone fulldrive on the clean channel and got these mayerish type of sounds,but not with the amp's lead channel.So i thought i'd give back the jet and get a studio pro since i don't need a second channel,and use a pedal for overdrive.Do you think i could do that?I liked the thick type of cleans that the jet offers.Are the studio pro's cleans similar?Are they thick?Or are they thin,kind of too bright sounding?Thanks a lot in advance for your time,Nick

      Hi, Shades of blue, i bought a 50's re-issue, dapney blue, and i love it to death, i own a 89 ECstrat candy green. The 50's re-issue has a more wood to the body, less sculptered and feels more substantial, acoustically verry loud. The EC is super aerodynamic and doesn't feel like its there, its so comgortable, but the 50's has more to hang on to, wierd going from one to the other, very pleasant though, oh and i put the EMG DG-20 on the 50's and though i'm not trying to emulate David Gilmour but when it sounds that great, those things are bound to happen. Love the Lace Sensors equally. Both necks are very similar exept the finish, way glossier and more lacker on the 50's. I can cover just about any sound exept that chimmery top end, i find strat are usually thin sounding but these two axes have me by the BOOBOO

      Hey Shades of Blue,
      did you get your tubescreamer??
      I have a TS9 reissue that I would like to sell, if you are interested.
      Let me know...

      I just finished a strat project and used a Jesus Praiseworthy head stock decal. I'll try to post it. Its better to show my faith than show any status of a strat decal, but that's jus
      my humble opinion. It's also my job as "an ambassador of Christ"

      Blessing, rock on!
