ML Rocky Jones replied to Carl's discussion 'What strings do you use and why?' in the group Bass Guitarists
"These days I use D'addario Pro Steels 40-100 - bright & bouncy. Used to use Ken Smith Round Stainless Steel, but are not easy to find. Prior to that, Rotosound Round Stainless Steel."

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Tuners - does it matter?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"While intonation's, of course, important, I've heard players make an intonated guitar sound out of tune. Usually it's a combination of uneven finger pressure when fretting, taller ("modern") frets, and heavy-handed…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Tuners - does it matter?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"How a pickup is mounted definitely makes a difference with tone: 1) Suspended w/springs (typical Fender & Gibson) 2) Suspended w/rubber tubing (some Fender) 3) Suspended w/plastic or metal spacer (custom) 4) Mounted directly to the body…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Tuners - does it matter?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"I like the 3-barrel saddles because of the tone - more solid & punchy, preferably the big brass barrels. That said, comp'd saddles (Barden and Wilkenson styles) can be implemented to make intonation setup easier. However, the standard…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to David B Williams's discussion 'strings' in the group Acoustic Guitarists
"I like the Elixir PB, but the G & D strings always break (usually in the middle of a worship service) - never broke a string in two decades till I started using Elixirs. That said, I switched to EXP PB and have been really pleased with the tone…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Mic The Acoustic?' in the group Acoustic Guitarists
"The mic's where it's at for tone, but for a loud worship band... it can get ugly very quickly! That said, if a loud band isn't an issue, then go with the mic - they're more natural and intimate sounding."

ML Rocky Jones replied to David MacRae's discussion 'Does anyone else use effects on their acoustic?' in the group Acoustic Guitarists
"Boss Flanger, Chorus, or Phaser... swirling ALL the time! :D Other than some eq (to fix things) and reverb or delay (for depth), I keep it pretty simple. When I'm on flattop, it's an airy, woody, acoustic tone I'm after. Now when it…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Guitar Cables' in the group Electric Guitarists
"Sure... cables make a difference, but it's a matter of whether it's a better difference or not. For me, I'm looking for consistency, which is where a particular 'brand' of cable can become important (for instance, if I need…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'Tuners - does it matter?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"I'm all for a good quality stomp tuner w/ a silent tune feature. I've used the Boss TU2 for good results, but have gone w/ the TC for my electric pedalboard since it's true bypass. But both work great/well enough for…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'G&L ASAT vs. Fender Telecaster vs. The rest.' in the group Electric Guitarists
"Careful w/stainless. I went w/ 6105 stainless and did NOT like the tone. I'd try some examples prior to dropping $400 on a refret, hoping to never do it again, only to result in another $400 refret. Maranatha! Rocky…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'G&L ASAT vs. Fender Telecaster vs. The rest.' in the group Electric Guitarists
"Ditto for me! 6105 stainless frets did NOT work out as I'd hoped, especially for a Tele project - strange strident highs, even when amplified. Maranatha! Rocky Jones www.CalvaryChapelLouisville.com"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Stevo's discussion 'G&L ASAT vs. Fender Telecaster vs. The rest.' in the group Electric Guitarists
"If you can buy the ASAT or the Nash (both are great), then why not save up a little more and buy an Anderson or Suhr (which is on your wish list)? Otherwise, just go with a Mexican, Japanese, or American Fender and do some parts swaps. Lastly, as…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Nathan Bush's discussion 'Choosing a Stage/Live Amp' in the group Electric Guitarists
"Keep it simple, but start w/a good foundation: Fender/Vox/Marshall all tube amp (essentially, a very rich clean tone). Add an overdrive pedal (or two), a pedal tuner, and a delay. If you want more options, add mod effects, wahs, tap tempo delays,…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Worship The Rock's discussion 'What electric guitar(s) do you own and play?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"Fender Tele w/Dimarzio Area T p'up set Fender Strat w/Suhr SSC system Gibson SG The most significant aspect after tone is that everything's humbucking/quiet. All of this into 1) some effects then BF Fender Deluxe or Bassman, or 2) Soldano…"

ML Rocky Jones replied to Jason Buechner's discussion 'Harder to lead worship with an electric than acoustic?' in the group Electric Guitarists
"I play electric only if I have a bass and drums, otherwise I use a flattop. That said, I use both in the band (leaning toward electric, ala Tommy Walker & Chris Falson). But, it's really a matter of how you're inspired to lead.…"
