desmachine Well, that's a job well done if I do say so myself (and I am saying so myself) and it would not have even been remotely possible without the extraordinary talents of @wdmcarth and his shop @lucky_town_customs .. This #fender #jazzmaster started off as a dual humbucker #blacktop model. We pulled out all the guts, cut a flat black Bakelite pickguard (by hand), dropped in some #lindyfralin #p90s, added a #masterybridge, CTS 250k volume pot, switchcraft 3 way switch, a Fender TBX tone control and used all vintage style cloth braided wiring. Matched the headstock black like the body with a thin nitro spray, applied a vintage style Jazzmaster decal, and installed vintage Kluson tuners. Now this guitar rules hard 😎 #geartalk #gearwire #gearnerds #custombuild #modsquad #mojotones #guitarlife #guitartech #guitarsdaily #musiciansdaily #fendersofinstagram #mojotones #gottone 11h

desmachine #straturday .. My very first American made guitar, I had started out on a Squire Strat. But in 1997, I got my first full-time summer job. 40+ hours a week in the hot Mississippi sun doing landscape work and a number of other things. I was 14 years old. It was the summer before 9th grade. That strat listed at $949.99 .. Minimum wage was $4.15 an hour. It took me all summer to save up enough money for that guitar. And would you believe it if I told you that I was able to save up another $500 and I bought my first car that summer too. I learned a lesson back then that I never forgot. Not to ever give up. You want something bad enough? Pray a lot. And work even harder. #guitarstories #geartalk #gearwire #fender #stratocaster #mojotones #guitarsdaily #musiciansdaily #gearnerds #gottone @straturday @guitarstories @theguitarcollective 1w

desmachine So I normally wouldn't do this but I wanted anyone that might be interested to know, that the #greenmachine is FOR SALE. She's a Tone Machine! Check her out @reverbdotcom or DM me for details. Special cash deal for any local buyer. Search "1987 Peavey Patriot" over at reverb.com #geartalk #gearwire #geartalkclassifieds #bstgearwire 1w

desmachine Sometimes you just get really lucky. You get a guitar that is so much more than just that. It takes on a life of it's own in a way. It becomes this thing that's like instantly recognizable. This guitar has that quality. Everyone that picks her up is just like yeah ... You got a good one. I'm incredibly grateful for her. #theblackone #geartalk #gearwire #fender #telecaster #1983 #gearnerds #gottone #musiciansdaily #mojotones #guitarcollective 2w

desmachine Here's my #teletuesday and a rundown on my current #pedalboard. I call this one my "big board" (it's a PT1 ) because I actually have a smaller setup (PTJR) that I use on the fly sometimes. Most of the pedals on this board have been with me for several years now. My signal starts by hitting a late 90's #TubeScreamer that was modded by my buddy Will over @lucky_town_customs (he also modded the MM4 and DL4). The tube screamer is set to a very low gain level, Tone is just past noon, and level is at around 2 o'clock. This pedal stays "on" nearly all of the time. Unlike most Tube Screamers, for whatever reason, the one I own is incredibly transparent sounding. It does add some of that signature mid-range but it's very subtle. Mostly the pedal does a wonderful job of boosting my signal and adding some presence to it. My second stage overdrive is an original Hermida #Zendrive. It and the tube screamer work and sound wonderfully with each other. Next I have an Alan Yee #FuzzyNuts fuzz/overdrive/distortion one knob mystery pedal. Most days it's not even sure what it is or what it wants to be. They are INSANELY rare, I've actually never seen another one, accept for a picture of one on Nels Cline's pedalboard. I have it set at 11 o'clock which puts it just above unity gain with a thick mushy squishy fuzz tone that magically turns into an Octave-fuzz with the Tube Screamer engaged. (Someone please explain that.) Next, my #Lovepedal Gen5 Echo, set for a short delay, literally stays on all the time. I am never not amazed by how good it sounds. From there I have the one pedal I probably love/appreciate/use more than any pedal I've ever owned. My first #BossRV5 (I own a few of them) that I got back in 2006 (I think) has been such a huge part of my sound over the years. Literally everyone of my musician friends knows that I LOVE that pedal. Then, the Boss TU2. Dependable. Perfect. Next, #Line6 MM4/DL4. Modded. Double presets, leds, switches. They sound amazing to me and that's all that matters. I get some really great sounds out of those old junkers. Hopefully y'all enjoyed this little trip down tone lane. #geartalk #gearwire #fender #telecaster 2w

desmachine If you don't know, you need to know #fretdoctor fingerboard moisturizer is where it's at. I've never seen or used another type of oil that makes a rosewood board look so good. www.beafifer.com #geartalk #gearwire #guitarcollective 2w
  •   hannermaharrey Des, not to be a creep, but I think I saw you at Barnes and Noble tonight. I was standing in line for a coffee and when I got it I walked over to where you were to say hello and I couldn't find you. So this is my "Hello!" 2w
