    Re: Blue Chips

    I'm in agreement with those that weave their Blue Chip in the strings on the neck. I own 2 BC's. One CT55 and 1 TAD 60. One I preferred for my SA and the other on my Jacobson. Even though I now...

    Re: Pickups

    I have a K&K in my Silverangel and really like it. When I got the SA, both the instrument and the PU sounded like a good step up from the surface-mount JJB I originally had on my Eastman. I thought...

    Re: Sold my Collings and got a Pava

    I favor a warm sound as well and my Silverangel deffo delivers that. However I do play with a BC CT55 which delivers a slightly brighter sound than the previous TAD 60 that I used to use. All of that...
