  1. Given how we seem to be synched, you should have known the answer to that question: The DeFacto Brothers (Gino and me, gtrs.; Ed, bass; the late Chris Garges, drums, engineering; Doug Davis, keys and vocs.; with The Little Big Horns, Tim Gordon and Brad Wilcox)
  2. I did, Daniel. That and the fact that a serious herd thinning is ongoing. Think I'm done with everything short of sitting in my chair or at the computer (this, after having spent last week in the studio). Finishing up a project in honor of Chris, drummer, co-producer, and engineer on Be Good To Yourself, who passed away in February.
  3. It was, Rich, and I did. Pulled the harness and PAF's out of it and put those into my 20th Anniversary 150.
  4. Bingo! I had a couple of the nicest CS Lesters you could hope to find, and a Nash LP that was my go-to for years. Once I got my aged CC, they all went.
  5. What kbp 810 and zguitar71 said.... Yeah...but which one first...?
  6. Oh my...! An awful lot to dig, right there! And in the Reverb photos, note the truss rod cover. Sweet detail!
  7. Great story! Well played, DB!
  8. This is really brilliant! LOL!
  9. I think this was the idea. Probably doesn't hurt that the acrylic and its installation are likely less costly.
  10. Warrior! Some nice photography, as usual, Brent!
  11. This. Perspective. Thanks, Dan!
  12. Silverface (drip edge, I presume) what...? Inquiring minds want to know.
  13. I think they're as interesting and good sounding - separately and together - as any of the dozen PAF clones I've tried...including my actual PAF's. They'll never come out of my Custom Core.
  14. This one's gone, but I think I know where. It was much prettier than this, in the flesh:
  15. Brilliant project! Love the honest miles on the finish and the binding. And the installation of the T-tops is swell on several levels! I never fail to get a kick out of the fact that my PAF's are in a Heritage, my 20th Anniversary 150. They're very happy in there! And the Marshall pile just looks loud! Well played!
  16. Just stunning! Congratulations on a significant acquisition.
  17. All bidness! They are exceptional guitars! And yeah..."the attention to detail"! Wear that thing out!
  18. Congrats on finding a guitar you've so obviously bonded with! 530's are certainly their own thing, and wonderful instruments! And in your post, nice to see you acknowledge this: "...craftsmen and women...."
  19. "(L)ocal means in the house. "(R)egulations are those implied by the presence of my wife (a long-time tinnitus sufferer), in said house. My hearing is congenitally and historically challenged enough that I don't need to subject it to what I would with be tempted to with that headphone rig. I've had more than enough time on stage and in the studio to have had plenty of jollies with winding a given pile of amps up. Plenty happy sitting in front of the computer with the Micro Cube on "JC Clean," gain dimed, and the volume at 9:00, with a touch of 'verb. I think my point was that the 225's present their fine intrinsic qualities even through the most minimal of amps.
  20. I know, man. I,too, can often resist anything other than temptation. Was spanking my CC today, and, due to local regulations, playing through my Micro Cube, and those pickups sound great through that little thing!
  21. From Guitar.Com, April 22, 2021: With alnico III magnets onboard, the tone is sweeter and smoother than it would likely be if the pickups loaded with alnico V magnets, and the output is a little lower. If you are inclined towards high gain and high volume, this cultured character combines with the wax-potting to make things nice and easy on the ear. This is as much detail as I could find posted...anywhere. Anything more is apparently a state secret.
  22. Chris, there was, apparently, a '58 or '59 Burst Edwin Wilson wanted the Custom Core to emulate in its top carve.
