    This is jus th tip of th iceberg, so to speak, on my 'new' guitfiddles, but I reckon one has to start somewhere, eh?

    Been needin me a suh-weet CAR/Rosewood Strat fer quite some long time, to assuage th tragic loss of a '62 RI previous guitfiddle; life can be cruel, an require immediate $$$ :(

    This will most likely be a lengthy post; please, feel free to ignore, or bypass, if yall wish...it's okay. ;)

    To Wit: CAR IC08xxxxxx...

  5. That's a great choice @Mr Bones ! Any plans on upgrades or just roll it out as is?
    Reminds me of my '03 (but SSS) that I tossed in a Texas Blues pickup set, a premium wiring harness and a pearloid p/g.
    Keep us posted.

    Funny thing happened along on th way to my initial testin of a new axe, though:

    Somewhere, along my way to a 'by ear' 440, I got to a point where I was enticed to tweak a lil bit o open D~ outta her...well, one thing led to another, an I plugged her in, fer a soundcheck...

    Unbeknownst to me, Smokestack Lightnin, (Th Kitty) had set up my S5, (an me) fer some recordin...:eek:

    Please, do feel free to laugh, throw stones, ridicule, as yall best see fit...done tol yall, I ain't gots me nuthin but a Learner's Permit...:oops:

    An, no...
    I didn't use a tuner, lol...:p

    I was kinda hopin / prayin to git me a Cool, @MrYeats kinda vibe goin, vid-wise, but now fully realize that I gots me a whole lotta work to do, to achieve that level...

    LMK what yall think, good, bad, ugly...



    If'n yall gots questions, ie.; settings, amp, mike, fx, etc., well rye cheer is th place to ask...;)

    "You may or may not cotton to that"...

    Lol... Just to be honest, hoss, I look forward to your posts just for the way you "talk", lol... I'm a Tennessee boy, and it even takes me a couple times to "cotton", lol... Feel sorry for the boys born North of the line, lol...

    I think it's amazing... I'd give anything if more folks had the courage to be unique and their true selves... As I've said before, I dig your style, hoss... Lol... And your playin... You play like you talk, your own thing, and bless ya for it... And it sounds like that thing's a roof rattler... Congrats...

    Lately I've been thinking about a CAR guitar of some sort (none in the stable currently). Trying to get the thought out of my mind again...but now it's too late! I already looked at all those tempting pics!

    Enjoy.

    Barrie,

    By far, an wide, I Vastly prefer SSS, but am sorta grudgingly willing to see where this guitfiddle lines up, tone~wise....

    BTW, above clip was strictly neck pu...I've listened, like mebbe a hunnert times,; cain't fault th guitar...;)

    Plans, ya sez?

    Oh, I might jus have some tenative plans, but, truth be told, ah'ma haveta hear her, all on her lonesome, in 440 (I know I have a dang dang tuner round here, somewhere):confused:

    That will tell me what I need to know...I will add this: She howls an moans like a beeyotch in heat, jus fine, in Open D...

    I was actually floored, initially, which led me to record in a more prolonged fashion. Ooops, my Bad...

    Reckon we all seek 'Th Tone', yes?:cool:

    Yer CAR is a Work Of Art, an I am spellbound , jus a lookin at her...totally droolicious~lookin goodness, callin out fer me to play.... (Not Good, financially, lol...)

    Pearloid is definitely on th agenda, lifetime addiction issues, etc.,
    not quite sure which way to go, electronics~wise, other than to upgrade from pots that only work in 10% of their travel, to ones that actually sweep th Entire Range... That doth pisseth me off, yea, verily...o_O

    Unlike many / most, I actually utilize th tones an vol knobs quite a bit, when I'm playin, to achieve th tone I'm chasin lol...

    Fer a LOUD ol bastige, I can be purty dang dang dynamic, at times lol! :p

    BTW where'd ya git yer Texas Blues? I know I've seen that moniker, probly on ePay, or amazon...

    I currently have a set of Texas Specials, an a set of Te-Mex readily available,fer projects, as we roll along, but I jus gotta ask: is there thing one wrong with th tone I'm already gittin, with this guitfiddle?

    Hopin fer some affirmation, cause she sounds jus fine to me, an I'll save th Fancy Pups fer another build...;)
