Tried out a few guitars and pedals with the Dr. Z Mazerati GT the other day- Guitars are a Les Paul R7 and an old solidbody blues guitar Kay styled Custom Kraft guitar with those killer 50s pickups like the Harmony stratotones have...Amp on 9-10 oclock, fuzzes set on max fuzz and unity volume, airbrake set 2-3 clicks back into a Germino 4x12 w/ G12M heritage 20 watters. All in all not hugely loud set up this way. I'm getting a Port City OS Wave 1x12 cab with a G12-65 Heritage seaker to tame volume. That should be reasonable volume I hope! Please overlook the clams:
A. R7 Clips w/ Mazerati GT.... Here's some Allmanish clean to overdrive with a knob adjustment:
And a Lovepedal Morph Fuzz in Germanium mode:
NEW: a Lovepedal 200lbs of Tone Fuzz and R7:
B. Custom Kraft guitar, bridge pup.... Heres a brief open D slide thingy, no OD:
And another blues short clip:

Its a Kay made solidbody (not hollow) St. Louis Music Custom Kraft. It has some outrageous sounding pickups on it. Neck is straight. I got it at Player Guitars in San Rafael California. Jim from PG takes these old guitars that the 50s blues guys used and sets them up so they are extremely playable. The one I have has a straight neck, little fret wear. The electronics all work fine. Pickups sound amazing. It has an ABR bridge on it which now makes it totally intonatable and a breeze to play. The action is low and the guitar is extremely resonant. Fretting is a breeze, recently I raised the bridge so I could fool around with slide. I have a long long long way to go before I get out of sucksville.
Here's two more clips into a tweed princeton clone amp.

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
