I ought this was a nifty little video. Interesting to see Ron Thorn- someone who knows guitars in a way that not all of us do- evaluates guitars while shopping.

One of my main axes is a CV Tele I converted to a white guard Esquire. The neck and body are nice. The selector switch was poor. Overall it's a good value out of the box. I played it before swapping the guts when it was still stock and it was fine. Nothing wrong with those guitars. The switch will eventually fail under heavy use but big whoop.

That was a cool video, I liked the middle blue one with the Hbukker in the rear, and the modern volume/tone control positioning as well as the 22nd fret. That would be my choice.

+1 DBM, on the master volume and master tone knobs and their positioning on the blue one along with 2 singles and a Humbucker...I have a Strat setup like that and I really like it! cool

Cool vid, Mr. Dannyalcatraz; thanks for posting that.

I do EXACTLY the same thing in checking a guitar and adjusting set-up! rawk twothumbs

+1 Great advice and easy to remember thu...I also look for the 1st string not being too close to the edge of the fretboard which causes the string to roll off. Taylor and Gibson both mount the 1st string a little too close to the edge IMHO. cool


Take care, Larryz

Looks like this site is deleting all of our YouTube Videos. The OP video is no longer showing up and all of the vids in the "cool new effets" thread have been deleted as well? cool
