    Re: T-Bone : On a Gibson ES-5 like he played, the lead pickup was wired out of phase, and that's a big part of the sound of those guitars - with the three pickups on full, you get an interesting mix...

    Are you thinking of replacing the existing Guild Bigsby with a Bigsby B70? I don't know if it's an exact retrofit, but apart from the cosmetics, you'd be getting the exact same thing, so I don't...

    No, definitely not. Acoustic amps and electric guitars is a pretty awful combination.

    The music you mention doesn't seem to be about squeaky clean guitar tones. In that case, if it's mainly for...
