Nice pine. Must be old framing timber from NYC Bowery, right?

Not sure what you mean by "roller", but on 6 saddle vs 3 saddle... 2 strings per saddle results in increased saddle pressure on the bridge, which some say leads to better sustain and tone. With compensated saddles, you get these supposed benefits without intonation issues. Plus, I think they just look cooler too! A win/win/ in my book.

Close enough! These are from the Chelsea & Chumley's, but the concept is the same. Over 150 year old pine that just resonates forever. I have other great guitars, but this one blows my mind whenever I play her.

Ever wonder why we do not need to adjust intonation on an acoustic??
Why is that, I find it puzzling.

I've never understood how one intonates a TEL with those dual saddles. Especially a 6th string, forget it.

I've got a '72 custom Tele and a Danelectro u2 (or something) that I both use quite a lot. Those are the only solidbodies I use though...
By the way, all those guitars and basses weren't really expensive, and I collected 'em over the last 20 years. So you can get a nice guitar collection without being ritch

Added a Seymour Duncan Everything Axe prewired pickguard assembly to my kit guitar. Gold anodized pickguard is pretty sweet.
Working on a new body and neck.


Not very pretty but drips tone.

Do you hollow body users get any feedback issues?
Old 5th August 2013

Its a 1984 Ibanez Roadstar 2 with the oiled neck finish.
I HATE that it has all black hardware, but I honestly didn't think I'd love this guitar.
I got this in a trade thinking it was worth ALOT more than the pedal I traded for it, but it is a MIJ beast.
I have the dimarzio PAF copy wired in parallel so that the output matches the single coils.
This is an awesome guitar, and it sounds phenomenal.

I use the Gretsch White Falcon for most of my live gigs - call it some Rock'n'Roll based Beat/Punk/Pop thing or whatever, can get loud. No problems with feedback, though I can make it feed if I want to. For my rockabilly band I use the orange Gretsch 6120 which has more depth, so more danger of feedback, but less distorted sounds - no problems. The "used-to-be-green" Gretsch single anniversary is my main "feedback machine" as it is kinda deep plus lighter built. If I want to get some sweet mellow jazzy tones I grab it, if I need some weird sonic youth feedback orgies I grab it as well.
There are quite a lot guitarists using hollow bodies for rock/punk/metal out there. If it's not ultra high gain then it's fine I guess.

I play an Aria 335 copy, and this rarely feedbacks unless I want it to. I frequently use a shedload of distortion, and it doesnt cause a problem. Much less deep than Gretsches of course. Love hollow bodies. Must own a nice orange Gretsch some day!

I love Gretshes! My "next purchase list" has 3. LOL 6120TM, 6119HT-62 (to replace my first '61 Tennessean) and 6121 or 6128T.

I used to do some jazz gigs with a Guild Starfire III and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe LTD -the brown with oxblood grille version with a Jensen. I couldn't really get the tone I hoped for without howling low end feedback, even at fairly low volumes. I always had my EMG SA loaded strat with, so no problem, just annoyance.
I think I started taking a Music Man RD110 fifty, instead. I had a dozen amps, back then and don't recall.

1988 MIJ Strat. I need to take a new photo as his was taken a few years ago right after I bought it. I've since changed the pickguard to a single ply, the pickups, pu covers, knobs, pots, and string guides. It has a heavy ash body and my favorite neck. I can just play this all day.

I remember guys stuffing them with foam to tame the feedback, like Nugent.
Some good tones to be sure. Duffy in the Cult used to use that huge guitar, not sure what it was as I do not know the models of that style.
Love some of those mellow jazz tones. Just seems when the gain cranks and the sensitivity increases if you're near the amp or angled to it in a certain way, feedback. Nugent used to walk the stage and mark where he needed to stand to get the right usable feedback for sustain.
I've always liked the Strat or the LP, I have a more traditional like of the thin sexy line Strat or the classic LP look.

my guitar (Brian May Red Special) doesnt seem to be hollow, but in fact, she is a semi acoustic without f-holes. so feedback: yes, and only intended and on every single note I want her to feedback. on big stages, I could have her play alone ... :-)))

so, at home I can get her to feedback at very low levels, on medium to bigger stages I have to be careful and never have the volume knob on and no hand on the strings. uncontrollable feedback only when it is extremely loud and I push the pickups onto a speaker grill or something like that.

yeah, its my favorite pic of the guitar. in fact, the cat isnt scripted. the cat got everytime into focus, when it saw someone holding a cam. :-)) so it was clear, that the taking of the pic wouldnt get along without the cat ... :-) fortunately the cat matches the colors of the guitar ... :-)) its not a black/white pic.

Nugent stuffs foam not only into his guitars. hear him talking and you know where the other foam goes ... :-(
