I sold my LP Standard on Reverb. I like my Trad and SGs so much more that it was a good parting of the ways.

I’ve been watching a used Reverend Buckshot on Reverb. I tossed him an offer and he accepted.

Very cool - I've always thought one of these would be fun to own/play - the different pup in the neck, a six-bolt neck joint, the string tree under three strings, and of course, the Reverend Bass and Treble tone controls.

Waiting for the full report... and congrats! You probably kept some money in your pocket on this one.

Yes, I did.

I bought it and a head and cab and still came out with money in pocket.

What's the main difference between the STD and Trad?

The new amp and cab...

An Orange OR15H and the matching 1x12 cab.

I’ve long-admired the Orange tone. I’ve never played one until today. I like it as well as I thought I would. (-:

The 60's slim taper would not be my cuppa tea.

Congrats on the Orange amp. Looking for to group pics. :o)

The slim taper isn’t “import” scrawny. It’s not too bad, really. I still prefer the slightly chunkier ‘50s carve.

The ‘60s profile is definitly thicker than the Gretsch I just bought.

The ‘50s and ‘60s profile are somewhat close at the first fret.

The Orange thing is neat. I still need to try different guitars through it. Cutting to the chase... the Les Paul.

It’s not got the upper mids peak that a Marshall has. And there’s a bit more wool in the lower mids. It gives the amp a broader-sounding tone than a Marshall - if that makes sense.

The OR15H is an EL84 amp. It has 3 12AX7s and a 12AT7 for the FX loop.

And it’s orange. 🤓

Today was the Reverend Super Rev’s turn. Wow! Such great tones! What’s really cool is the bass contour control on the guitar. It peels off some bass when rolled back. Since the amp is a bit wooly in the low mids this control on the guitar really has quite a dramatic effect.

I haven’t got to my Les Paul yet.

It sounds like you have all of your tonal bases covered.

I’d still like to add a Vox. To me that would wrap up the trifecta of British tone.

From what I've read, the challenge with Vox's is their spotty reliability and they're finicky to dial in.

This guitar is sweet! Of course, I have to rewire the pots.

It still had the film on the pickguard. I think it might have been a return to the shop.

The bridge pickup is bright and snappy. It was set too high and it even overdrove the clean channel of the Mesa. I’ve got it adjusted, now.

The Revtron is a very nice pickup too. It’s pushed back from the neck a little. It doesn’t get muddy at all. It’s a very sweet neck tone.

Eric - off topic, but when did you get the Mesa? I somehow missed (or forgot about) that one...
