    Looks good, bargain!
     
  2. Cheers. Im thinking of selling it, cus its just sitting arround in my room. I mean its nice to go around saying "I have a signature strat" and Is a talking point when someone comes round. But whats the point. How much do you think its worth, i saw one for like £600. You seem to have a good idea.

    I wanna get a strat, but Clapton isn't my thing really... if it were a Gilmour Black Strat I'd be drooling though :D

    Might have to get a Japan '57 RI when I have some moneys!

    Nice find though, wish I could find bargains like that!

    However I may happen to now a friend of mine who has modded a squier into a Gilmour strat and its very nice. Might be worth considering.

    It's not just the scratchplate and the knobs though, it's the electronics, the pickups, etc.
     
  8. With eBay its all about being patient and persistant. You find something you want, you find the cheapest price on the internet, say its like 200, use that as your max and check eBay every three days for it, and if it is at 210 and has 5 mins left, dont bid. wait. You do that and you get things for prices your friends will never believe.

    Clapton isnt my cup of tea either, but i like the look. Its like the old U2 iPod, im not fussed on U2 but I had to get one cus the red nd black looked so kool

    Not particularly.
    The clapton would be fine for playing Gilmour stuff.

    Yes, if you just want it to look like Gilmour's strat.

    Nah I wouldn't say so...

    Gilmour strat really isnt really much different from a standard strat.
    Other than a a blend switch I wouldnt say a lot different.
    You can argue pickups but the noiseless fender pups in the blackie will be good enough too and if the blackie has a midboost that would be advantageous too.

    True, it's all the pedals and effects it goes through that we'd never be able to afford! :D

    Lot of people assume u need EMGs for Gilmour because he used it on his Candy Apple Red strat. Truth is the signal chain and floyds lighting etc had grown considerably and the interference to the standard single coils was becoming unbearable.

    Its not that hard to get a gilmour type tone really, ive done lots of Floyd recordings and got good results with just a pod!
     
  15. What do you guys think about effects processors compared to say a stand alone pedal for overdrive, compression or reverb.

    They are good if tweaked and run into a good amp thur a good fx loop.
    Depending on what your after the Pod X3 Live is a good example but i'd advise u to tinker and create your own tones etc.

    If you got a good amp id be lookin at a TC Electronic G Major or a Nova System.

    Whatever sounds best to you and suits your budget IMO...

    I build clones of pedals sometimes as a hobby sort of thing, but seperate pedals take up alot of room, are expensive (most of the time), take alot of power/batteries etc etc ...

    I'd say try some all-in-one type jobs first, as they tend to have alot of stuff on them (effects, amp/cab simulators etc) to try out rather than trying hundreds of pedals

    /can't say much as I mainly practise clean with a bit of reverb, and all I do is practise lol
     
  18. Yeah, I have an effedcts processor and find most of the time i only use about 10 of the effects and theres hundreds.

    @Kier, cool avater, you have kids?? About the only bearable actor on that program.
