    If you could only have one amp one guitar and no pedals. What is it?

    Good bright Les Paul with sustain and maybe a Traynor Ygl MkII. That is also attainable..... and what I have.

    Henry Vestine's (of Canned Heat fame) conversion

    Yes, I think you are totally correct! Still searching for his sound... might have found it with a 100watt Traynor from 1975 (untouched) and a Death By Audio Apocalypse. I have tried everything.... Sola Sound Tonebender Mk1 and MK2 and a lot of other early fuzzes. Well, the search continues.

    Do you think guitar music will ever be great like it was from 1954 to 1979?

    This is pretty good but sadly the answer is no.

    Should I trade my SG Standard + G0 for a 57 Custom Black Beauty RI (3 pickup)

    I would do the trade if it sounds good. If it's dark and murky with no treble sting I would run away. Screaming No moaners for meeeeeeeeee You can check top buy looking in the control cavity. To me, it does not matter what top it has or if it's a two-piece fretboard. You want one that SOUNDS...

    Henry Vestine's (of Canned Heat fame) conversion

    I did a fair amount of research and I am pretty sure Henrys ( now owned by his son Jesse) Black Beauty is a early 1968. I mean stalker warning research..... I love his broken blues style not unlike Buddy Guy or Jimmy Pages. I suppose they are accessing polyrythms when it works.

    Do you recall what Fuzz Henry used or was it built into the amp? Was it the TNT amps you worked on ?

    Boost pedals, which one do you play?

    I have had all the pedals Ocd Fulltone, Analogman King of Tone, Klon copies and etc. And Im back to a cheap Boss DS1. And it works fine cuts the Bass a little and you have all the Distorsion you could want. A Moeyer Modded 1990s Fender Vibrolux and a Killer Es335.

    Better tone changing the bridge post?

    I had great success with an R8 putting Stainless steel Abr1 Rods in. I also had a killer R7 and changed it there also did nothing for the tone. But I still recommend trying it! That R8 Really took advantage of the increased sonic clearity.

    9s or 10s on your Les Paul?

    Of course, I know who he is. I just don't listen to the music that much. I know he's good just not my taste. There are a lot of other guitarists also that I highly respect but don't necessarily listen to that much

    Pickup volume neck vs bridge.

    This question is geared to people with a lot of experiences. So, on some of the best Les Pauls, I have had the bridge pickup have been louder in volume compared to the neck pickup. And I am talking about various Paf like copies. To my question is this the wood? or is there a way to make the...
