  1. Thanks. It isnt that i wanted t change the sound of my Poly cuz I luv it. I just wanted some more information. Purely an academic endeavor. Anyway, thank you. As a side note there is a trim pot inside my CE-2 that is very user friendly. That's what peaked my interests.... ...... Anywho, if anyone can add to the Electric Mistress vs. Poly Chorus Flange Mode please don't hesitate! Personal 0pinions Very Welcome.
  2. I was like that wit my Jazzmaster. It was my first electric & the honeymoon was the longest/ most intense Ive ever had. Puppy Love, I fell harder for the Jazzmaster than I do for most girls!
  3. Without a doubt I have to vote for the Mustang (w/Duo Sonic II, Musicmaster II, Bronco, ect.). To me it is the best feeling and best playing guitar I have come across yet. The Telecaster gets a close 2nd because I'm really starting to fall for them. I parts Tele (Fender Strat neck/Squier Tele Deluxe body) that I through a JB in that has become as much of a "work-horse" as my Mustangs/Jag-Stang. I picked up a used '72 Tele Deluxe RI before Fender upped the prices for $500 that Im thinking of putting a Goodwood pickup in the bridge.... & Im jonesing for a Thinline. Will the GAS ever stop?
  4. Can anyone explain any differences in the sound of them in Flanger mode? I have a Poly and I love slapback effect you get from the Double Track setting (if it was just that effect it would still be worth the pedalboard real estate). I think the flanger is pretty hot too but I have not experienced the Electric Mistress. Should I assume that the Mistress being a dedicated Flanger produces the superior effect? Further question for Poly Chorus users: Have you messed around with the internal trim pots?
  5. Wonder if he'd build a "thinline Mustang". I always have loved semi-hollows & chambered, but i've never seen a semi-hollow 'Stang. He seems to be offbeat enough to try something with absolutely no mainstream appeal.
  6. I think it's about Gawdamn time they reissue the DU0 S0NIC II! Seriously. Its a Hardtail Mustang. The only thing Id do to the Duo Sonic II is make it be string-thru by putting tele ferrals(sp?) on the back. The Duo Sonic bridge already has holes that would allow strings to pass thru. I have a Musicmaster II w/ a bridge pickup which is basically a Duo Sonic. Add some Tele compensated saddles & yr ready to rock.
  7. All of my amps are 6l6 so I dont have first hand experience with el34s. That being said I've heard good things about TAD el34s.... their 6l6 is almost as good as SED c-wings. For preamp tubes I like Tungsram N0S for distortion & JAN 5751s for cleans. Both are switchable with 12ax7s
  8. when my strap button holes strip out I stuff'em with toothpicks You my friend are way beyonde tooth pics!
  9. Its too late, Im already a hardcore pedal addict...I, using up to 10 pedals a day. I mean you start with footswitches then build yr way up to the heavy stuff (Pedals: Dope:: Footswitches: Ganja) {I havent seen an analogy since my SATs} Anywho I have some "dirt" pedals for flavorings, but my blues-rock distortion is the lead channel on a Boogie IIC+. That being said I love delays'n'modulation.
  10. totally agree. just didnt understand what you ment. Jazzy trems are kinda hard to setup if yr use to a Strat. When I bought my first electric (12 years ago, god time flys) a got a used Jazzmaster. I didnt even know it had a trem lock a couple years till I pulled it apart to start customizing it
  11. Child? WTF Im vertically handicapped that's my son Caleb, he's a budding guitarist. He cries if I practice & wont let him in...so now he messes up my pedals while Im playing. Santa got him some earplugs but he hates them (#### so do I).
  12. I had to use washers cuz my low e-string was too thick to fit under otherwise. As to what was said about Strat players playing Jaguars; Does that mean that if you don't use a whammy-bar yr relegated to the Tele, LP & other "hardtails"? I try to make standard production guitars work by modifying them to meet my needs as a guitarist. I haven't found/built the perfect guitar for my personal playing style, but over the years I have come to enjoy the "chase".... Fender made some funky looking guitars in the late 50s to early 70s. I love the shape, feel, color. But that doesnt mean I like the sound. Its a good sound but it's not my sound. (PS that wasnt an attack, it was a rant. I enjoy the discussion)
  13. Here's a close up of the Jazzy...I just dont know what to do with it. I love the body, its kinda become Fender's 60's answer to the Les Paul. The issue is 1.) the Bright Red Pickguard (that's not too hard to fix) 2.) It sounds like a Les Paul (just not as nice): i.e. too trebley in the bridge pickup too dark in the neck Any Suggestions? The pickups are humbuckers under soapbar covers so if I replace pickups it would be with humbuckers. Ive also been thinking about putting another humbucker in the middle like a LP Custom.
