I've found the perfect combination for me...

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Jamie, Bubs and everybody else who took such good care of this 3M Sock Monkey before it came to its final resting place with me and Sishkov #0066.

I know you’ve wanted one! I nearly pulled the trigger but I am amp rich at the moment.

How do those Trons sound spankin’ that Monkey?

I've got 3 PowerTrons in there, so they do a nice humbucking sound, but are rounder and clearer to my ears.  I worked with Mike for a 25.5" and the 3 Trons/Blade switch to cover my Strat sounds, which this does beyond well, and with no hum/noise.  I REALLY like the shimmer between this amp and that guitar.  It sounds better to my ears than my Strats/Daytonas straight in, and also works well with some pedals in particular.

Lots of playing around ahead with this setup!

I bet! Can you post a clip showing how the  classic Strat in-between positions sound? Neck/middle and middle/neck? Do they retain that Strat quacky thing?

@cmatthes is right now digging around for his Red Wings cap, shorts and hoodie...

Dang, that is just all kinds of WRONG.  (But still funny as hell).

I've kept amps because they sounded good with just one guitar.  But I won't keep a guitar that only sounds good with one amp, if that makes sense.

That's a "desert island" combo there, Mr. Matthes.

He knows where they are.  And his buddy and yours in Florida knows where his Penguins jersey is.  In the closet until next year...

Nah.  I'd never wear a Red Wings anything, much less a sleeveless hoodie!  :D

(And like Dave, my Caps stuff is tucked away until October.)

That looks fantastic. I love the sound and looks of Gretsch guitars, but not the neck shape. What you have there probably solves any playability issues for sure.

Oh, I am certain that Shishkov solves any playability issues! Playability is why I am on the list  again. 0006 plays better (for me) than any guitar I have ever touched from 1978 till now.

And to be honest, I am in for the entire Shish package: playability, looks, CRAFTSMANSHIP, everything....
