Ed O'Brien signature Strat


#101

Nope. Customs had a Wide Range Humbucker at the neck, rather than the PAF-style seen there. They also had a volume and tone control for each pickup and a pickup selector located on the pickguard itself.


#102

My stepdad’s has a narrower humbucker but you’re right it probably has more switches.


#103

Modding Teles to have a neck humbucker was a common enough practice in the seventies. Keith Richards’ Micawber for example:

Fender didn’t issue a variant like that until the 2000s.

Some really terrific work from @ericthefourth ITT

That $99 epiphone looks great. My dad plays guitar so know a few chords. Might pick one up with some kind of headphone effects box (recommendations?) for my birthday.

I’ve got one of these

Which I plug into my laptop to practice or record. Works brilliant for both.

Garageband has loads of built in amp presets which actually sound quite good.


#108

looks good to me, are there any latency issues? Also the annoying thing about having an iPhone 7 is that I don’t have a jack port on my phone now.

Oh just looked online, looks like you can get a version with a headphone out built in.


#109

Yeah I think there is one with a straight out. No latency issues for me, works a lot better than I though it would to be honest. Use it for guitar and bass, works a treat.

Not sure if this’ll work as it’s Facebook but here’s a video of bass going through it I did (it’s music from Sonic 3, so clearly great):

1500 pounds? Get bent!


#111

Limited edition of 10 though

Worth a fortune in 100 years time


#112

You can probably make 1500 into a fortune more quickly though


#113

I’ve just realised that technically I play a signature bass. Whoops.


#114

I’ve got a Marr signature Jag. Don’t really like the Smiths at all, but it’s a beautiful guitar and the range of tones you can wrangle from it is pretty remarkable.

If pressed on it I would prefer it didn’t have the signature on the headstock, but clearly it didn’t bother me enough to put me off buying it.
