"Yea, the Diamond has some good qualities too. I personally own the Diamond and a Keeley 4 knob and they both have their place. If you want Ross sounds, the MXR is a great value. But it can be a squash monster. The Diamond is usually what I use for…"
"We seem to be doing the resurrection shuffle with old threads, don't we?
I think the Tele is a good guitar for bass players because it's simple, but for worship a strat works best *for me* because it can go from snappy and twangy,…"
