Swell. I do think you make a good point about guitar tone on recordings being processed beyond recognition, by the way. I just like bustin' chops and whatnot.

I believe sentence one explained more about sentence 2 than you originally intended dave.

that's entirely possible hahaha although i'm a firm believer that it's all a matter of perception.

but does that really change the knowledge i have about the instruments i use? or just the way that i choose to use them? hehehe

What brand of guitar a member of a rock band uses has never affected my opinion of their music.

Kind of a strange question.

Hey, "Mr. Dave," check out Gilmour with the vintage LP w/ P90s:

Search "David Gilmour Island Jam" on youtube (Sorry. Can't post URLs, yet.)

I agree it shouldn't matter what gear a player uses but I can't stand the majority of guitar sounds created by Eric Clapton. I wish somebody would have just turned the mids up a bit and cut the treble down when he would solo on those records.

also, my $99 Rondo strat sounds pretty ****ing sweet... really can't hear a difference between that and the $2000 Fender Custom Classic I once owned. It's all a matter of how you treat the sound being amplified and how well you play... the rest is just cosmetic.

The guitarist in my band has both a Strat and a Les Paul, He's also got a Patrick Eggle that wipes the floor with both of them, both tonally and sustain wise.
He prefers the Les Paul for most stuff, I think the Eggle is light years better.

do you notice a significant difference in your guitar player's tone when he switches instruments? (assuming they're all setup the same way and run through the same effect / amp chain). i know that when i'm playing with my friends when i switch spots with the bass player he still gets his own unique tone through my guitar rig.


is the eggle really that different from a PRS guitar? they look remarkably similar from what i can tell. harmony central reviews are saying that the only good ones are pre 1994 and that Patrick Eggle isn't involved in making guitars bearing his name anymore, then there's the fact that the PE forums are down due to legal issues...
