No Matchless amps? Your collection is not complete! LOL.

 

Completely bias opinion. Kel

A way-too-closeup shot of my Burgundy Mist Custom-Shop '61 Stratocaster.  When I got this one I got rid of all the others.  Best guitar I've ever played.

I've read that Steve Olson got the idea to do his checkerboard Santa Cruz after seeing this guitar. Anyone know if this is true or not? Here's a better photo of that checkerboard one:

That Engnater amp does everything from Blackface Fender clean, SRV Fender dirt, to moded Marshall and beyond.

I used to own a 92 Vox AC-30 and tried outt a guys Matchless 30 watt head through my Vox's speakers and both he and I liked the way the Vox sounded better. I gotta get me another Vox sometime.

hey K,
I'm not really a Matchless fan. They do the "big grit" rock n roll
distortion EXCELLENTLY, but for the tones I go for, they don't
work.
Egnaters are totally bad-ass as well. Haven't played through a
newer one, but the one I played through many moons ago
was a total fire breather!!
I'm using a Mesa Triple Rectifier(old version 2 channel) with
two Mesa 4x12 Recto Cabs. It's just beautiful sounding!
There's so much "OOOMPH!!" to it. The clean tone isn't exactly
my favorite, but it works.
The Ibanez Universe and Petrucci axes just blaze through the
Tri-Rec!

hey knutsaq - cool strat! i totally agree with you - i have 2 1960 cs strats and they play beautifully and i can go crazy with the trem with no tuning issues - and i have them set to float! the necks are just so slinky and the resonance when played acoustically is amazing.

Of course I notice that beauty ! I used to have an original 65 rosewood neck three tone sunburst with the transition logo, it had the , and I mean "THE" most beautiful sound !!! swamp ash body(not alder),but one late night coming from a gig in Barcelona, had an accident and the guitar fell from the fourth floor !!! me and my flat mate where taking all the equipment and unfortunate it slid from the back when I move to get the keys of my apartment. the instrument was destroyed ! I  fixed after by a luthier and sold it to a collector.

Then I went for the regular clapton signature strat, but the lace sensor didn't do it for me. BTW is NOT a bad guitar at all !

I love the soft V shape neck on the ec signature, and the 9.5 neck,so I'm doing my research ! 

I'll keep both(Kluskie,and Knutsag) of you updated through PM

Kluskie - my trem floats too, with no tuning issues whatsoever.  The neck profile is a large "D" because I have big hands and really like to dig in.  The shape reminds me of some of the Gibsons I've owned, and it's made of a gorgeous piece of birdseye with painted headstock.  And the resonance is amazing - it's the only guitar I need at this point since I'm not gigging any more.

 

Roadrider4 - sorry to hear about your axe, that's horrible.  From the sound of it you may trip on the Custom Shop Custom Classic with a V neck - this would probably fit the bill for you, along with CS build quality.  Let us know what you find.

Wow CO, you play through a full stack whenever you jam?  I'm about to sell my big gear.  I played a JCM 800 and a Hi-Watt, until I found a Peavey Roadmaster (6 x 6L6s and many pre-amp tubes) years ago- it's a monster, but sounds even better through a 2 x 12 bassman cab.  It's crazy, you can really get a Loud AC/DC sound- and it floats over to a soft fast rhyth machine.  All my offerings to Craigslist or ebay are going for a Blackface Deluxe Reverb- killer amp and fits the Rockabilly twang we've been going for of late.

 

Anyone ever play Warmoth Custom guitars?  I've been playing an older Tele model they made with old ass Joe Barden pick ups...amazing rig - and feels better than most real Teles...bit of a V profile neck.  The special strats they've made are killer too- the swamp ash is the ticket.

knutsaq - my strats have the thinner neck which i prefer for gigging but my '59 historic flying v and '55 lp jnr have the baseball bat style necks and i love 'em!

roadrider4 - i agree with knutsaq if you like the 9.5" radius can't go wrong with a cs strat.
