  1. Don't know if anyone else heard about this: http://www.fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0302200540 I'm definitely interested in this.
  2. I'm definitely considering this for my next guitar purchase. I could never really dig the particle-board charm of the DanElectro '63, but this is totally up my alley. Can't wait to get my hands on one. http://www.danelectro.com/guitars_main.html
  3. Anyone here own it or have played it? I'm very intrigued by this guitar. Especially the desert sand and gold gaudyness of it. Plus the maple looks to have a good finish. (Also, the 280 price tag helps) http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/prod ... sku=519399
  4. Yeah, it would probably be better to learn how to solder...however, I'm too afraid of messing it up. Especially since the Strat is my only guitar. I think I might just get it done at a shop.
  5. I completely love my MIM Strat, and the tone is brilliant. However, the only thing that irks me about it is the 60-Cycle hum. And it always leaves me fiddling with my amp settings to try and dull it down. (But hardly ever works) Now, on musiciansfriend, they have an already pre-wired Strat pickguard with the Blue/Silver/Red combo. And I as I do not have a soldering kit or anything, is it worth it to get the pre-wired guard, and then take it to a shop (paying a little extra money) to get it installed? Or, should I try to learn how to solder and possibly screw it up?
  6. I still say it would've been nice for them to have it made in mexico like the joe strummer tele.
  7. anyone have any links or directions on how to do so? I've looked far and wide but I only see mention on how to date the numbers on danelectro guitars (in my search for just silvertone).
  8. Here's some demo's of the Freak Show DigiLog. It's pretty pricey...I think it's somewhere in the 200's...but it looks to be pretty versatile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy7TQCfJWj4 ^ Country sound http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-b-c-D7JTq4 ^Wet sound http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oeomy6HiFgc ^Freak Out & Tweaking
  9. they go for 165. Made more expensive because of them being hand-painted and such...but I think it's a good deal. They describe it as a meticulously souped up ProCo Rat...and well, I'm pretty much sold. You should go to http://www.freakshowpedals.com to see the other two they make. The DigiLog (a really cool delay pedal), and the Mahirishi (an octave pedal without the fuzz and it also has the ability to sound like a Sitar!)
  10. So, I've decided I'm going to go with this neat little boutique pedal I've found. The Freak Show Brown Rabbit. Check it out: (this is with a Strat run through a Fender Deluxe) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBgmk0r15CQ It looks to have incredible range...plus all the pedals are hand-painted, making each one unique.
  11. I've watched a couple videos of it. It sounds almost exactly like Hendrix's Flange effect (the...Univibe?) Anyways, it makes for one awesome sound.
  12. I'm actually thinking of the Fulltone OCD overdrive pedal. It basically has all I'm asking for...hmmm I'll have to see if Guitar Center has any.
  13. well, what's your main priority? (Loud Fuzz, or sound modulation?) I'd go with the Big Muff first and if your amp has any chorus effect built-in then settle with that until you get the small clone.
  14. Guitar: 2007 MIM Standard Fender Strat (Midnight Wine, with Maple) Don't let the "MIM" fool you, it's pure classic Strat tone, and the 2007 ones were upgraded and are better quality than previous MIM's. Pedals: (From the beginning-right to left) Fender Tuner pedal-->EHX Big Muff-->Danelectro French Toast Octave(though I don't use it hardly at all these days)-->Boss DS-1 Distortion-->Boss OD-1 Overdrive (replacing soon)-->EHX Small Stone Phase Shifter-->Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Pedal I have an EHX Small Clone chorus that is broken...and I don't use the DS-1 for distortion (i turn the Dist. all the way down and use it as an overdrive to let my Strat's personality shine through it) Amp: VOX AD100VT (Tube Modeler) I have it set on the Vox AC30 setting. And I also use the Vox Switch Pedal for additional effects that are mounted on the amp.
  15. It really just depends on what sounds you're after. And what sound would that be? as for some of the pedals: Big muff is a very good harmonic fuzz, very classic sounding. And the DS-1...it's good for what it is. I've been using it as an overdrive (I just turned the distortion all the way down and raised the levels) and it really lets the tone of the guitar shine through (but I want to get a replacement for it soon). As for the polychorus, I haven't tried one myself, but it does have lots of neat gadgetry, but if you're just after a chorus pedal I wouldn't shoot so high. Small Clones are good too. (but if you want the Polychorus, that's cool too) And I've never heard of the T-Rex Mudhoney...
