Re: Spammers and stats...

You do a great job, Gerd. I only wish that I could participate more. This is a great forum, I have steered a couple of people here from a facebonk guitar page I frequent, but don't know if they have checked it out.

Re: Update on the new Sheraton.

Did you modify the PU's it by yourself? Those are the stock pickups in the 2016 model. I haven't done anything to it but play it. My brother did a set up on it and changed the strings to .11's before he mailed it to me. I am liking it a lot. It even stays in tune very well. (that's important... my ...

Update on the new Sheraton.

25734017_10209487763505188_1572632394893530458_o.jpg I've been gigging with the new Sheraton for a few month now, and I have some conclusions... I like the Probucker pickups better than the '80 Gibson 490's that I had put into my '69 SG recently. They are very responsive and the coil tap feature is...

Re: Pickups replacement for BB King tone

If I were you, I would work on playing technique and amp settings before changing pickups. I have a Sheraton and really like how the stock Probuckers react with my amp. If you must change the pickups, try some Gibson 57's or Lollars.

Re: The new Sheraton!

Thank you, gentlemen. :D
Gerd, you are absoutly right, I do have a good band.
I may try to do some kind of vid showing the difference between the tapped and not tapped sound on this guitar. The coil tap function is more useful than I expected.

The new Sheraton!

This is from the second time I've plugged this new guitar in. It is very different from the Strat that I am used to, but I really think I will be able to find the magic in it.

As always, please forgive the poor recording quality and all mistakes.
I like this guitar!

Re: Epiphonic Blind Test

:icon_whoknows: They sound very close to me. I agree with VB that the first one sounds a bit more articulate and the second one a bit thicker. My experience with Gibson and Epiphone (I have and play both) tells me that this could be a toss up. So, simply to cover the bases, I'll guess that the secon...

But - what's the thing that looks like a cut-off finger next to the fretboard?
Lol :lol: It's the little leather tab used to open the storage compartment. It ought to be in good shape, it's brand new (2016). I can't wait to plug it in! :chicken:

:clap: :clap: I really like the Empty Bed Blues. I have enough trouble playing well in standard tuning that I don't even try alternates (aside from slide).

Jam with a good friend

An old friend of mine, and one of the best blues guitarists that I know sat in whith the three piece version of the Trainwreck Blues Band Saturday night. One of the patrons took this cellphone video of a song. If this post works, I will elaborate. https://www.facebook.com/eric.szeman/videos/14589749...

Maybe BB can add another flavor...?
I'll give it a try. Gotta find a time when my wife isn't needing the computer room. It's the only place I can hook to the laptop and play the music through the stereo.
