    I have two Taylor's 914ce and a 314ce and neither can compete with the BR180 in tone or playability.

    I was just playing my little Washburn on the deck. I'm really pleased with it - I put in new a bone nut and saddle, after sanding them down a bit, so tbe action is where I like it. It has a mellower sound than my Blueridge.

    What is what???

    Oh what is “Veronica”? A local dude built her for me. He cut the body from a plank of alder. It’s 2 piece offset so neck, bridge and pickups all on one piece of wood. And I picked the piece of wood that made a note when you tapped it. It has a extra wide contour on the back. Finish in Vintage White and Nitro...

    The neck is a 2011 Fender Road Worn 60’s that has been flattened to a 12” radius and been fretted with those Nuevo Gold Jumbos...

    It sported some old Rocket Fire pickups for years but the Mighty @Bodean send my a set of his mix magnet darlings and I wanted to give them a shot in a good guitar. So .... oh it sounds like this...

    I responded to a thread on TDPRI yesterday, about Univibe pedals, and got the itch to drag mine out. Of course, my Jimi Hendrix Univibe sounds best with my Strat plugged into it!

    Good to see another EOB in action. However, today was LP day.

    With new cables provided by @The-Kid. I believe I did hear a difference in clarity, I'll have to do some swapping out tests to see if it was my over active imagination.

    I am undecided. I think I may go for something completely different, and pull this one out of its case.

    Spent all weekend replacing the phillips head screws in the pickguard with the more vintage correct slotted type. Found my pedal board and now if I can only find the box with cables I can actually play a bit. (moving sucks)

    So this will be the first fired up once I find some things.
