    iPhone didn’t like this one. Tried a handful of takes. I just couldn’t capture the sound I wanted. Not sure if it’s because it’s a 1/2 step down or what. Got tired of readjusting levels and tried to compensate with a Chorus. Had to settle for this one. Here’ goes...

    I know I’ve heard this...driving me crazy. Drawing blanks.

    Man, your V sounds really good. I’ve used Duncan’s for over 20 years. But I’m leaning towards DiMarzio’s for this next one. Going the HSH route though. And I’m not familiar at all with Dimarzio’s. Never used them.

    I like the tried and true SD and PAF combo. Dave Murray had the Pro right? And if I remember right...as long as you haven’t swapped them, I think you have the 36 in that one...?

    Not sure about the middle. Can’t make my mind up if I want to stay with a true single or a stacked one. I may just use one of my Duncan’s...but I’d like to try and keep ‘em the same. But, like I said, never tried them, have no clue. Probably try to get ahold of an FS1 or True Velvet or Area 67.

    I can’t get that dang Whitesnake song Fool For Your Loving out of my head. Need a hint before you reveal it @sam_in_cali

    Thanks! Ya, that V has the SuperDistortion and 36th PAF combo, hard to go wrong with that combo (I'm not sure what PAF Davey had in his original strat).

    Not Whitesnake. Trying to think of a hint...if the bassist of this band knew I posted a riff from one of their songs, he may come after me for money.


    No, but that's a pretty good guess!

    I’ll take a shot in the dark
    Is it something by Motley Crue?

    Doesn’t sound like the Kiss of my youth!
    Then again other than a few hits played on the radio I’m only familiar with them up to Alive2:D

    Yeah. Dead on @sam_in_cali .
    I’m not very familiar with KISS. I went through there after the hint. Must’ve went right passed it.

    Not Cinderella. Before Gypsy Road. At the beginning of the same decade.
