desmachine I'm usually a die hard d'addario string user. I use d'addario's on every other guitar I own except for this one. For some reason, the Ernie Ball cobalts just work better for this Tele. #gearnerd #guitarnerdstuff 9h
  •   daytonswords I've been wanting to try those. Let me know what you think. 9h
  •   billypineaux I'm on a cobalt kick myself. Started with a set on my '68 Silvertone Mosrite. Now I'm rockin the 11's on the Paul. They simply remind me of that "new string twang", I, personally, always loved, but instead of dulling down (or breaking in) after a few hours they stay twangy for like a few more weeks! Dig em fo the time being, mosdef! 9h
  •   desmachine Dude I've been using them for months now .. I tried them on a few of my guitars about a year ago, and I wasn't into them, except for the tele. For some reason they just really work for this guitar. Can't explain it. I usually stay away from Ernie ball strings all together @daytonswords 9h
  •   matthewxknight The few times I've been forced to use strings that weren't D'Addario, I felt like I was breaking an unspoken bond with my guitars. 9h
  •   desmachine That's what's up @billypineaux .. I definitely love the way they sound on the tele. @matthewxknight I'm like you man, I almost hate using another string, but sometimes you just gotta go with what works best. 8h
  •   christianlukie I'm the same way but with the super slinky 11s that's all I use 6h

desmachine He may look like an insurance selling soccer dad, but this dude is one bad mofo! Happy birthday Eric Clapton. He's 69 years old today. 2w
  •   maloneybologne I've been trying to emulate his vibrato for 15 years. Still can't #slowhand 2w
  •   desmachine Yeah he's just ridiculously good @maloneybologne .. Honestly, it took me a long time to fully appreciate him. 2w
  •   maloneybologne It's because he's not flashy or super technical like a lot of today's guitarists. It's the small nuances that make him a great player; the note selection, that sweet vibrato, the bends. He's just always spot on. 2w
  •   desmachine That's literally the best way to describe him on top of being a pretty good song writer. Also, everything you just said about EC, is exactly the kind of guitar player I'm striving to be @maloneybologne 2w
  •   maloneybologne Me too! Maybe in about 40 years 2w
  •   righteoustrees Yesss. 2w

  •   daytonswords @desmachine did you use a vibramate with the bigsby or did you just drill in to the guitar? 2w
  •   desmachine I used the #vibramate and it works great! I actually even prefer the way the guitar looks with it on there. 2w
  •   tonelovers Hey dude, whats ur signal chain? 2w
  •   desmachine Gibson Les Paul Traditional > Ernie Ball VPJR > McArthur modded Tube Screamer > boss TU2 > Fulltone Fulldrive > Crowther Hot Cake > Boss RV5 > Boss RV5 > Aboveground FX Tone control > Lovepedal Gen5 Echo > McArthur modded line6 MM4 > McArthur modded line6 DL4 > all running in a straight line to a Fender 65' Twin Reverb. I use a combination of Lava and George L's patch cables and Mogami instrument cables @tonelovers 2w
  •   desmachine It's really a very simple rig, but I use everything on the board .. And I can get just about every sound imaginable with the RV5's and the DL4 .. The tube screamer has been modded to be used as more of a clean boost and the fulldrive is my second stage overdrive. The Aboveground FX tonecontrol is a great way to add some top end back to the signal and I love the boost/short delay that I get from the Gen5 echo. I use the MM4 for tremolo and rotary speaker sounds. Both the DL4 and MM4 have upgraded foot switches, LED's, and double preset switches. @tonelovers 2w
  •   tonelovers Nice!!!! Check out my page. ;) 2w

desmachine Figuring out what you want to be when you grow up isn't always easy .. On top of that, everyone has "dreams." But sometimes what we dream about being when we grow up isn't necessarily what we end up doing. By nothing more than an odd set of circumstances I think I've finally figured out what I really want to do with my life. #craftsman #letsgetgreasy 4w
