Well since we are a two piece with a female drummer, of course we play lots of White Stripes tunes.  Not sure if you all are into The White Stripes, but here you go:

Awesome!  I love it.    Your LP is really awesome too, I have an affinity for blue axes.  I have a blue LP as well but not nearly as bright of a blue color as yours.

Appreciate it.  It's a 2017 Les Paul Standard in Blueberry Burst finish. At the time I found the color really striking and had to grab it. I don't know if they still produce that paint scheme.

I like a lot of them but I did buy one that arrived dead once but it happens.   But I really like what they produce, as well as earthquaker

On the acoustic front, I sent back the Breedlove, and sunday morning I'm going to test drive a 77 Guild f50r with the rosewood back and sides. Pretty excited that I found one 20 minutes from me.

wow that's awesome.   I really love my guild.  It plays and sounds great and I think that's pretty common with good Guilds.

For sure. And they are tanks. This one has a crack in the body which supposedly has been repaired. If not, I have a friend who is great at stuff like that. Guess I'll find out Sunday.

It there visibly a flat spot on the fret?  Maybe it can just be crowned.   Or perhaps the neck is just too straight.  If you don't get dead spots higher on the neck you might just need a tiny bit of extra relief (very slight truss rod adjustment).  maybe.  Hard to say but definitely a fixable problem.

Yeah, I agree.  I wish I had a POG.  I'm able to somewhat simulate the sound of a POG with my TC Electronics Sub N Up pedal.  I can pitch shift to 3 different octaves simultaneously, so it sounds close to a POG but not exact.

This is on the way. Only 250 made and, if not for anything else, it's a great modding platform.

Those axes are so cheap, seems too good to be true.   They've got some really great looking ones.    Did you get it yet?  How is it?

I'm going to replace the pickup and electronics but other than that it's a great player. I'll do a video once the guts are replaced. All told I'll have a little over $400 into a mahogany DC.

Not sure if we have any fans of The White Stripes in here or not, but here is our live off the floor cover of The Big Three Killed My Baby from band practice last week.

If you really want to nail that WS sound, the drummer really shouldn't be wearing a bra. Maybe get that part down for the next performance. Otherwise, great video!
