yes. definitely going on the list of shit to get.



i like sg's as long as the necks dont feel like bats. the best sg ive ever played was a lawsuit one made by ibanez, not gibson.

I don't really own much gear yet, but I got my first amp a few months ago. Fender blues deluxe re-issue 40w. I'm looking to get a reverb or delay pedal next. As far as guitars go I only have a lefty strat but I'm looking into getting a G&L. Probably a bluesboy.

yea i noticed that the necks seem to feel really odd and nasty

but since this is a cheap little shit that i am gonna use for slide
i really dont care

i would highly suggest a holy grail reverb

its great for the price, and its basically all you need

delay pedal, any piece of shit from 50 bucks and up will do

but if you are serious

you should get a giga delay
you can loop short sequences and it makes some weird noises

I think my buddy has the holy grail so I'll be sure to try that out. We also have the giga delay at my work. I just haven't invested much time in it yet, but the looping aspect you mentioned sounds awesome.

my roommate has the giga delay and it is so damn awesome
if you get really good with it
you can overdub and make noise like kevin shields

you mean the ones without covers?


i would always go with a "chrome" humbucker in the neck position and a non covered humbucker in the bridge position, also i would wire the bridge pick so you can use it as a single coil also



hahaha.

well not exactly but it sounds close
