All I use
Anybody that knows anything, already knows about this guitar!
this thing rules with it's 1960 neck, also fitted with
57 passive pickups. Mild but still hot, coupled with a valve amp.
Neck is perfect
Action is great. Once it is set up.
I boil new strings - really works.
Marshall full valve
Sometimes use Boss ME-30 for certain songs
This thing works well anywhere.
Durable as any guitar.
If I could have any ONE guitar it would be this guitar, thanks gibson
