:D A clean geetar is a happy geetar!! :lol: Or if your refering to the post of my 345 and 2 amps , Clean on one amp means , I don't use any overdrive or any effects just what I can achieve in[ A ]channel, presence etc, 2nd amp I overdrive it just enough to get a good attitude, combine the 2 sounds and it has punch like 2 seperate guitars, Thats what clean means to me, :roll:

The subject of valve amps came up, but I did say I would shift it over to a different topic if it got in the way. Or I can just shut up about the boxes :lol: and just stick to what's making the sound :wink:

8) Ain't no big deal, I just like to talk Guitars, Bases ,and sound,

Clean sounding I understand, its all this washing away away of character (beer) and tonal warmth (dead skin) that I don't understand :lol:

I solved the cleaning-my-bass problem once and for all by spraying it satin black. Although it is kinda grey and furry around the pups and bridge now...

Got another box so I thought I'd take up 601's suggestion and create the "show us your amp" thread. I'll move or copy the overly wiringy posts from here to there. It'd be nice if anybody else pops up an amp pic - doesn't have to be valves 'n' wires :)

Thought i'd post up my accoustics, first one is my nearest and dearest, the Greatest accoustic ive ever played, and it's heartstoppingly beautifull.
My Gibson Hummingbird, bought new in i think 99'.

This one is a Crafer Parlour guitar i bought a couple of years back, great tone, but had a headstock repair after my missus accidently knocked it on to the tiled floor, ouch!
Still sounds good though, used to use it for gigging but cant anymore cos i keep thinking the necke will snap off at any moment! can you imagine the laughter if i was in the middle of 'Pinball Wizard' and the headstock flew off?

And the last one is my Gibson 'Sheryl Crow' signature, a copy of her country and western, I actualy got the guitar that was reveiwed in 'Guitarist' Magazine, after they reveiwed it i got it from PMT in Romford, of course i got an extra copy of the Magazine to keep with the guitar.
It was reveiwed by the editor too! and you can see the pictures of the serial number through the soundhole, along with Sheryls signature.
But of course it is essentialy the same guitar as the Hummingbird, different colour and tuners, but still the same guitar.

The Crafter looks nice... not seen one of those before.

(Obviously, the Gibsons look great too - that goes without saying).

In case you were wondering about the new avatar... Here's my latest guitar. It's a one-off custom jobbie built by Feline Guitars in Croydon (see http://www.felineguitars.com). It features an American ash body from a 1970s Fender Stratocaster - the holes are there partly to decrease the weight (its still very heavy though) and partly because they look cool. Other features are Seymour Duncan pickups (2xSSL1, 1xCustom5), Gotoh bridge and machine heads. It sounds fantastic, and has a versatile and very useable range of sounds all available via the 5-way selector switch.

Yes, it was inspired by Russ Ballard's guitar, if any of you have seen that. And NO, it's not a guitar for the Worst... thread, OK?

Dang, glw, you just made me delete my "worst" post (joking :lol: ). I see your point; my German mate Arni at leftybass.com has me looking out for vintage and interesting lefties. If you think the mid-late 70s Strats are bad, try a Precision in natural :cry: . I think it's because they used northern ash for the bodies. Nice grain, but incredibly dense, unlike the swamp ash used in the 50s.

+1 for the acoustics, Lee. Now, Tim, perhaps you might be the only one even vaguely interested (maybe 601, too). My 'best' bass, although I didn't spend a fortune is this Jim Reed BE5:

It's quite good, actually. It has a thru-neck of mahogany and maple laminates and the body is a mahogany core with top and back coverings of bird's-eye koa. I'm not really an exotic wood type, but it does look interesting. The pups and preamp are so-so, but it's a very warm sounding rumbler.

Yes it looks like it will take care of biz!!
