Thanks, bro.
I never gave any thought to blue guitars until I saw/played this one. It's like a Porsche, cool, powerful and fast.
what i found weirdest with the one PRS i've tried was the way the double cutaways connected to each other instead of the neck. not quite sure how else to describe it, it was like one big arc at the end of the body that the neck rested on, instead of two small ones that squeeze the neck onto the body.


@jkloring - i'm not a huge fan of woodgrain finishes (purely an aesthetics thing) but whatever, that strat still looks nice but that hand made LP just blows it away.

I know exactly what you mean. It's kind of like a Rickenbacker.

Ive play a new(ish) American Standard strat, black body, maple neck, maple fingerboard and white pickguard but im changing that to a black one soon. I also put a seymour duncan 'hot rails' in the bridge to make it more versatile.

It plays very smooth (it is a strat so thats a given really) and the hot rails gives it a sweet humbucker tone without the weight of a standard humbucker equipped guitar eg les paul. Ive got the tremolo set right forward for more stable tuning but i dont use it much anyway.

I run it through a fender deluxe which is 40w and sounds great turned up. great reverb on it aswell. I run that through an orange 4x12 quadbox which really boosts the bottom end and sounds massive. plus orange stuff looks great aswell!

Ive got a marshall delay pedal which is crap (like most marshall pedals) so im looking to get a boss giga delay because im a fan of big delays and the like. Also got a boss-ds1 distortion (classic pedal) russian built big muff, dunlop hendrix wah, mxr stereo chorus and a small stone.

Dont have any pics of the setup as im in a different city to it all at the moment (sad). But it sounds (and looks) great.

I wanted a Nick Valensi Riviera Epiphone, but couldn't find one, I thought his guitar looked pretty cool. A friend of mine was selling an American Riviera fitted with humbuckers, so in a way I lucked out, and got what I wanted. It has a beautiful sunburst finish, and very nice semi-hollow woody sound to it.



I found picture online and it is real close to my guitar (I hope it's not too douchy doin' that, - digital camera broke, and that was my only option to post here to talk about my guitar)

BTown,

^ Is that a G&L? It's bridge doesn't make it look like a Fender.
