  • NGOLD (New Guitar On Layaway Day)

    I went to GC today to check out some non-humbucker guitars. I was primarily interested in Jazzmasters and the '60 Tribute LP Studios. I played a number of each, and a number of Teles.

    I wasn't really too big on the Jazzmaster neck, couldn't find a Tele I really clicked with, and hated just about every of the Studio Tributes I played, until I picked up the ONLY one I hadn't played yet. Everyone says that you can go through a number of Gibsons, and just find that one that speaks to you. Well, that happened today.

    After playing a goldtop with a darkback, a honeyburst with a dark back, a honeyburst with a wood back, a worn ebony, and a tobacco burst, I picked up a goldtop with a wood back. I plugged it in and played for a second, and I instantly was smiling ear-to-ear and loved everything about it. I couldn't get a sound out of it that I hated, and the guitar just, well, spoke to me. I decided I wasn't leaving there without knowing I would own that guitar.

    I'll probably wait until right around Christmas to pick it up, since I was intending for it to be a Christmas present to myself, but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to hold off.

    Anyways, a picture I snapped:

          Thanks!
          I want to hear it through my old 2ch DR that you have. I bet the Vintage channel unboosted would be awesome for what I'm going for with my tone right now.

                    This is somewhat true.
