Hi.....I found my sound !
Yep, a guitarist ...saying he's found it!
Rare...I know. I think I got lucky.

I recently traded my 1973 Les Paul Deluxe for a Blonde 1997 Gibson
ES335, my personal dream machine, found by chance on internet.
(My 1962 Strat has worked hard over 28 years
and needs a well deserved rest).

A pro player friend of mine mailed me two handbuilt OD pedals
by craigamps.com.
A Vintage G and a Toenail Clipper.

No kidding, I now don't take my Mesa Boogie MKIV, I don't use
my Marshall TSL channels at gigs. Clean channel on Marshall and
the Craig pedals deliver everything I need for Crunch Rhythm and
hard hitting Lead.

I am as surprised as you are. I think I just got very lucky.
Totally workable live, this home demo is tame...

The video sounds pretty good.

But if you think your tone search has ended as a guitar player your either retired or dead. :lol:

I'm a fan of the ES339 and recently shifted from Carvin amps to a Marshall Class 5.


No, my search is not ended either. :wink:

Yeeeahhhhh.....I ain't dead or yet retired....
so, you are probably right. A little way down the line
I will inevitably start twitching, looking to improve
on the great tone I have........

For some reason I cannot get to your Bandmix profile page.
Was going to see if you had music up?

I'll try again tomorrow. I hate 404 bad link errors. :evil:
