I just traded in my two Gibsons (Custom Shop R8 '58 reissue and Gisbon LP Recording Guitar '72) for a couple of Fender Custom Shop gems.
I've always wanted one, but never found the "right one", you know..
This time however, between heaps of already worn/reliced/beaten/destroyed Fender Custom Shops, these two stood out.
No relic, you know like they made guitars in the old days... Like new :-)

I had my doubts when I said goodbye to my Gibsons (I've lost faith in them basically, Gibsons Quality Check have went down the drain over the years. Sometimes they make some great guitars that just punch you in the face, but not too often anymore in my opinion), and picked up my new Fenders. They were wonderful in the store, but you know how it is. Sometimes they don't fit your equipment etc., and once theexcitement dies down it's not as great as you though in the store.
Not this time however, and I couldn't be happier, because they look and sound like a million bucks.
I will have a new Gibson one day, but for now I'm a Fender kind of guy :-)

Check these beauties out (soundclips comes later):

Congrats on Your new purchase! smile.gif We use to tell "That guitars are so ungly that they become even beautiful " biggrin.gif I'm not a vintage type of guy but always feel some positive vibrations from those crazy axes smile.gif

About the quality I think it was rather the "type of guy You are...fender type" than the Gibson quality...but of course I believe there could be something in it too...Didn't own both Your "gibbies" to keep objective judgement smile.gif

Congrats Paal!!!
Love that JM with the Maple F/Board, looks great!
I was the same when I bought my G&L, felt great and sounded great at the Shop but I was unsure as to how it would sound through my rig but I was beautifully surprised when I got it home and even more so in Live situations. It's had a very hard life since then though.

Congrats! Those are some vintage looking axes to be sure! I don't know much about vintage stuff to be honest, but I can appreciate the craftsmanship. I have a buddy of mine who is really in to that kind of thing though and he's introduced me to "Civilized" guitars smile.gif He also introduced me to tube amps smile.gif I introduced him to pointy guitars and and super high gain. Ahh Serendipity!

There is sort of guitar player group (most of them wrom Wrocław i think) they make a cool connection between vintage and modern like this guy. Marcin Bors

You can hear that "nasty" dirt from the Tele's Single coil used with low tuning and mesa dr smile.gif



I feel sort of sentiment to this type of tone smile.gif

Busy weekend...
But I sat down for a few minutes now, and recorded a couple of riffs with my new Telecaster.
One guitar 85% Left, and one guitar 85% Right.
All effects are from my pedalboard (delay, overdrive, compressor).

Both pickups for the left guitar, and neck pickup for the right guitar.
Not perfectly played, but it gets me the rhythm tone I want. I just love this guitar :-)

Attached File  Tele1.mp3 ( 2.69MB ) Number of downloads: 85


I'll record the Jazzmaster and the JM with the Tele in the next few days.
Same effects so you can hear the difference :-)

I like this deep breath of harmonics - fully organic tone with a pleasant whistle and bell-like flavour smile.gif

...and here is a soundclip of the Jazzmaster.
Same settings on Amp and Pedals.
The JM is a bit brighter, but still have that unmistakable Fender sound.
Both comes to their right when tweaked accordingly, but I wanted to hear them at the same settings.

2 guitars, 1 left and 1 right.

Anyway, here you are : Attached File  JM1.mp3 ( 3.47MB ) Number of downloads: 50
