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):
Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Deluxe '72

I just bought the Suhr Corso yesterday, and was blown away.
The sound in this amp is amazing, and great for low (and high) volume playing.
I sat down earlier today to check out the line out feature on this,
and this is what it sounds like:
Trallalladida.mp3 ( 1.6MB ) Number of downloads: 1685
Guitar > Overdrive/Delay pedal > Amp > Line-out > Sound interface > Recabinet.
No effects/plugins in Cubase (only Recabinet, for cab simulation).
What do you think?
For a line-out recording I think this sounds pretty doodle good,
and the clean tones sounds sparkling as ever. I'll post more clips later :-)
I'll also write a full review, after I have had some time with it.

I saw this video of Steve Morse demonstrating some of his gear.
From 02.36 in the video you can see how he use his Tone control to shape the sound and create a gentle wah effect.
Very cool if you ask me, I have never thought of that :-)
The rest of the video is pretty cool too, awesome playing
