Chuck Berry wants you to send him $100.

Sure you don't have me confused with someone else?
You're definitely a purist in matters of gear and equipment ... a driven-snow purist. Not just all-tube amps front and back, and not just insisting on an all-analog string from end to end, but other stuff. You once explained in detail your list of a few alterations that could give any Strat a more solid tone, cut back on tinny sound and hum. Very meticulous steps including a "block" of some kind on the bridge? You insisted it was still 100% pure Stratocaster, just better stronger faster.

Oh, OK - I wasn't sure what you were talking about, but I get it now.

BTW, I was plugging a company that makes cold-rolled steel replacement trem blocks for Stratocasters:

Fender used steel blocks in the early years, but they started using crappy pot metal for the blocks when they went down the mass production road.

Anyone that's a fan of older Danzig, the guitarist from those albums, John Christ, finally surfaced with a new CD. It's growing on me.

Glassjaw's new press Coloring Book. The song in particular, Stations of the New Cross.

On a side note, I've been playing out of a Music Man 112 RD. Great amplifier. Really awesome stuff. You guys familiar?

Music Man? Haven't seen one of those guys in a long time. A guitar player buddy of mine owned an HD series back in the early 80s. Great-sounding amps that never quite got the recognition and acclaim they deserved. The 112 RD is solid state front end/tube power section, right?

All these GBPPH versions, so how about posting two versions of the same song ... ?

Both of these are truly great. But Gregg, can't beat that ... an all-time classic in my book





1969





1978

VERY different versions ... the Cars' original sung by the late great Benjamin Orr, accompanied by my teen hero Elliot Easton, and Red House Painters 18 years later ... (RHP version was used in a Banana Republic commercial).

Cars' icy cold mechanical ... Painters' heart-rending drama ...




1978




1996


Car's girl "shatters you in the mirror" and has real strength, you both fear and desire her ... Painters' girl, you cry for her, she seems to need somebody.

My vote is Red House Painters, dramatic beats mechanical any day

Terrific player.

Easton had great melodic sense, knew how to craft/build a solo, and was just basically a one-man hook generating machine.

Yep!

The clean/bright settings on the amp are awesome.

It can get heavy as crap too.

The reverb is so-so, but I wouldn't be using reverb on an amp, unless it is one that is absolutely special.

I'm looking @ new gear right now.

Trying to decide whether or not to build a guitar straight up, or just spend up to $1,000 on one already built online.

If I did the finishing on the guitar, I'd save a couple hundred bucks. That's like the biggest major cost from places like Warmoth when ordering parts. I'd just probably put a natural laqeuer finish on it or something.

I'm thinking a '72 thinline build or a Firebird.

Commandment VII. (A) is correct actually. So how does saying so make me a douchebag?

Commandment IX is hilarious ... though I never pretended myself. I used 8's when I could find them.


And Music Man ... they were like Peavey, from zero to everywhere in no time. First time I saw both brands they suddenly had a full line of instruments amps and support gear. Difference is Music Man was actually good stuff, I wish it was Peavey that faded away. Kind of like Elliot Easton ... why didn't he stick around and John Mayer fade away?

I was thinking the same thing. I guess I'm guilty of that one too, as evidenced by the Clapton debate we had here.

Number VI was the one that really cracked me up.

Funny and true. I was in a group that insisted on running a line driver out of the back of my amp line to the board. Of course that was a different sound than I was generating outta my speakers, so I wanted a mike. Tom didn't get it, insisted mikes picked up too much ambient sound. So for awhile, this was a common exchange ........

"Tell Casey to turn down his amp"
Tell Tom to mike my amp and get rid of the line driver
"Tell Casey to turn down his amp"
Tell Tom to mike my amp and get rid of the line driver
"Tell Casey to turn down his amp"
Tell Tom to mike my amp and get rid of the line driver

Finally I was able to explain, finally understood and agreed to mike my amp.

So I turned it down. For awhile
