    I find the yellow ones have more sustain but the red ones have more volume!

    Actually I've ended up saving on shipping by going for the classic. Took me a while to decide but also talked to mates about it. It's in natural finish.

    Tonight we will be running through a Mooer 007 preamp or the Mooer Blues Mood pedals. Looking forward to hearing how it sounds.

    I am glad Eastwood came along. They put out a bunch of affordable gear that people seem to want. I have a few of their products. Mandocaster, bass vi, and recently the SG tenor with Bigsby. When the tenor arrived, it was tuned to octave mandolin tuning, with a poor choice of string type. I changed it to tenor tuning and it came to life. Got it for my wife that is learning on a blue ridge tenor i have. Hoped it would bring out some new ideas for her. I got it so she could get some amplified tones the acoustic cant do. I plugged it into my 57 twin reissue and turned it up to 7. It’s a different beast at that point. Considering another to tune to open slide.
    Its not a backwards guitar.

    Very cool! I am tuned to gdae and just love the tones with the p90s. Absolutely comes to life with that 007 preamp and/or the blues pedal.

    Am considering a yamaha thr10 or thr5 as a home amp. Can't afford anything else anyway - and don't want to blast my fiancé and stepdaughter out of the house

    I've read good things about them and will demo at my mate's shop.
    For my open mic needs can I use it by plugging it into the desk...I wonder?

    If you want a tube amp have a look for an Epiphone Valve Junior lovely little 5 watt amp. I picked one up for under £100
    Not sure you can go straight into the desk. I have a zoom multi guitar pedal that you can go straight to a desk from. But I believe you will need something to sort the impedance between them.

    I've got one of the Vox 20s that uses solid state and tube tech. It works really well even at low volume. My preferred tube amp is my Univox U45B, but it needs some servicing right now.

    Recently purchased an Eastwood LP Tenor in TV Yellow.
    Early days yet, but sounds good to me and plays like a dream.

    cheers

    Today I went to get new strings. Shop didn't have the recommended 18 for my A string. We'll have to see if a 16 is up to the challenge.
