Yes I have said it, tried to be very discreet:dbw said:Well, as I'm betting Nonsense is planning on having at least one tone control on his guitar, he can always roll off excess sizzle.
Edit: A quick Google reveals that the source of Nonsense's quote is John Suhr. I wish we could get him to weigh in here...
Counting what guys said here, and as this Slow Hand set is used called as a fatter single coil, and I'll try these pre-amp that Clapton has in his Signature (that I understand that gives a little more "fat" mids)... I will to the Swamp + Maple/Rosewood... to make Suhr even terrified, will have a 1/8 Maple top on the body :icon_biggrin:NonsenseTele said:jackthehack said:""Rosewood fingerboard on Ash body will give too much sizzle for many players. We would only build such combination if you are positive that this is what you want."
That sound so positively ignorant it must have been wriiten by that Ed Roman frick
I've to say that wasn't him... Was a guy with muuuuch more credit, Suhr...
tfarny said:TL, before you go off, let's recap the logic of this a bit:
CB, who has about 2000 posts on every conceivable technical and other guitar topic, and basically could design the Starship Enterprise or at least build you a wicked tube amp from scratch, has owned and swapped necks on his own guitars looking for these sound differences, and couldn't hear them. You counter by saying that Eric Johnson, IF he were around here, WOULD tell you that CB is wrong and besides everyone knows xy and z.
I have the feeling that CB's take has more scientific rigor than just about anything you'll read on the internet regarding tone. In fact, this forum is exactly the forum where bunk like 'sizzle' gets actually tested out, because these guys own ridiculous numbers of fine guitars and are fanatics about the details of them. Since the 'guitar tone' debate is almost entirely comprised of people repeating claims off of manufacturer's and retailers websites, I'd say CB's and others words, based on personal experience, are worth a respectful listen. This is not the 'random website of tone', but in fact nearly everybody on here is a guitar builder as well as player.

1. First a famous and noted reference is used.
2. The member is made out to have some deficiency
3. The "everyone knows" card comes into play
4. And the "obviously..." card follows.
This is the premise of The Emperors New Clothes, Tone-Pro's, underwrapping of strings on a stop bar, and playing cards hitting the spokes of your bicycle (to go faster).
