    PRS Soapbar SE, what a tone machine that thing !

    Your neck pup on it seem high, I pushed mine down as much as it would go. It became as nice tonally as the bridge, clear, articulate and coupled with the bridge, it sings to the angels. If you do that, make sure you push hard on the cover as you tighten the screws, if not those flimsy thin screws will just snap.

    It's down as far as it can go. The springs under it are completely compressed. When I change strings next time, I'm going to take out the springs under it and use rubber tubing like my Strats have. I did that to the bridge pickup and I have much more movement than I did with the stock springs. I put them in a bag with the stock strap locks and marked them '99 SG Sup. They'll go in the case after I change out the jimmied lock.

    I think I put in a thin piece of foam just to keep it from rocking. It is probably sitting at the bottom of the route.

    Nice collection indeed. I like your wide selection of makes and models, it never hurts to have a large pallet to choose from. A guitar for every mood is my motto!

    I completely agree, although everyone is different. I have three SG’s and cycle through them well. One I play most for sure, the other two battle. If I am just grabbing it and siring my blackstar practice amp, ones wins, if I warming the tubes up the other wins. My 61 just sounds so sweet on the delta blues. I have played may SG’s and many with 57’s classics, but none that are as forgiving as that guitar. I can roll tone and volume up and down and get it dialed in so quickly, it’s very forgiving, sounds great everywhere. Some guitars you “hunt” a half notch up and down to get it just right.


    I will say I don’t think I need another SG, lol. Didn’t say I would buy one though. But with three SG’s and a semi hollow I feel I should move one along to get another. I have been eyeing up a Malcolm Gretsch, but think I would sell the Sheraton for it. Finances aside, I just think I would grab the MY instead of the Sheraton… and if I wouldn’t, do I need it?

    For amps, I have two. A 30W peavey delta blues (amazing for me) and a blackstar practice amp. My peavey jumps from ACDC, to ZZ Top to BB King and delta blues tones really well. Very adaptable for my style of sound. I got this amp as a gift (bought used) about 22-23 years ago. I liked it but wanted to later buy a Marshall stack eventually. Ran a JCM800 into the combo peavey for a while with good results, but in the end, this amp sounds best just as she is.

    I will admit, most things in my possession I keep polished and top form. Cars, guitars, firearms, tools… But this amp, had this look like it would give you tetanus since the day I got it. I just rolled with it. The OCD gave this bad boy a pass

    Thanks Torren. Given your line up that’s means a lot. You know, it’s all just a lot of fun.
