Re: at last. my ultimate blues guitar.

interesting. Would a 335 have this problem as well? 335s have a center block so they are not real susceptible to feedback. Great. I was thinking of getting one somewhere along the line. the only down side to 335's is the price. you might look at a vintage Guild Starfire IV. for a fraction of the co...

Re: at last. my ultimate blues guitar.

Re: at last. my ultimate blues guitar.

Great looking guitar and a great conversion job too. :clap: A lot of work you set yourself, and made harder by it being a hollow body. I would think improved sound with the changes and the quality of the gear you've used and it's improved the look of the guitar too. If you've managed to solve the h...

Re: Blues band tips

Thanks admin :D We figured out it was the drummer screwing up after his solos, for some reason it's difficult to get back into a shuffle after improvising for several minutes because we get into it and usually the bpms jump up quite a lot. He's gonna work on it and I hope we can sort it out because...

Re: Your favourite blues record

8ea425105edf13aeb46de3b5edf7aa84--jazz-blues-blues-music.jpg I like Freddie King's first record, "Freddie King sings" perhaps best. It's filled with classics such as Tore down, Have you ever loved a woman and I love the woman. My personal favourite is "If you believe (In what you do)", Freddie's vo...
