I had a chance to break in the new guitar today. The Collings CL Deluxe was a treat to play live. A very rich and powerful tone machine. And I also had a Diamond Memory Lane 2 delay pedal on the board for the first time. In a word, awesome. Awesome guitar. Awesome guitar rig. Awesome tone. I mean, the whole setup was just dripping with tone. Jaw dropping tone. Seriously phat tone. Warm, round, clear, punchy tone. Decades it has taken me to find this tone. And it all came together today. I was simply overjoyed. The quest for tone had ended.
Me: “So how did the new guitar sound today?”
Lorraine: ” Couldn’t tell any difference from your old one. Sounded the same.”
The quest for tone resumes.
