I like the natural finish, but the pickup cover would drive me nuts. Seems like I would get in the way of picking certain harmonics and I like freedom to pick on certain different areas of the string to produce different timbres. Also looks like it would make fast slapping and popping a pain. That bridge cover also seems like a pain in the rear. That would suck if a string popped at a gig and you had that thing in the way. I like the fretboard markers on the maple, thats pretty classy. Is that black binding on there? thats pretty cool.

Yeah, not too sure about whether I'm gonna leave the covers on or not. For $150, I'd say it's a steal if it plays nice. I could always add active pickups or a preamp system later if I don't like the sound

[quote]Hey, nice guitar the other night! PRS Goldtop? Tell us all about it!/quote]

sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

yeah it's a PRS SC245 with a wide/fat neck. pickups are HFS in the bridge and McCarty in the neck. it feels freakin' awesome. the wide/fat neck feels kinda similar to the neck on the Gibson Custom Les Paul 59 which gives it a really big resonant tone...not quite as deep as the Gibson neck though. i was skeptical about the HFS at first...i ordered a Dragon II in the bridge but they sent the HFS...and it actually sounds really good. a little hotter than i was looking for but it works for Disciple. my only complaint is the volumes are impossible to match with the two pickups. i can't raise the neck pickup close enough to the strings to match the volume of the bridge...and lowering the bridge sucks all the guts out of it...so that sucks. but overall i love the guitar. i looks amazing, even though Israel dominated it with his tuning peg the second show i ever played with it...awesome guitar though.

Bass players... :lol:

Of the 7 years I've been playing bass I have never once hit anyone. Out of all the shows I've played and all the running around on stage I've never done it.

Hey Andrew,

I saw a show a while back in Orange, Texas. On May 9th or something. You were playing this awesome red Tele with a black pickguard and some EMG's in it. It looked and sounded amazing! Would you telling me some more about it? Thanks man, and rock on!

And are you still rocking the Orange Tiny Terror, or using only the Marshalls? Have you seen the new Orange Dual Terror? 2 channels, twice the fun!

i really need to start checking this thread more often.

as far as amp set-up goes there have been some changes:
i'm still using my Mesa Dual Rectifier but i'm also running an original 1985 (that's right....it's older than me) Marshall JCM 800 2203. i run them stereo and they're each running their own Mesa Rectifier 4x12 cab.

as far as guitars go:
my Les Paul has Burstbucker Pros in it...but i don't use it live anymore. right now my main guitar is a red 50s reissue Fender Telecaster with EMG 81 and 85s. i'm not a huge fan of EMGs, but they definitely work for Disciple (obviously). i also use a cherry Gibson ES-335 for the slower jams (After the World, Lay My Burdens, Whatever Reason, etc.) and as my backup. it has Gibson '57 Classic pickups and sounds a-freakin'-mazing. it's the replacement for my stolen guitar thanks to subboy!!!! i love it infinitely more than the one that was stolen.

i'm sure there's been some changes to my pedal board since i listed my gear too so i'll go ahead and update just in case:
not a lot to mention....planet waves pedal tuner, MXR Phase 90, Ibanez TS9, Boss DD-20.
nothing too crazy.

i still use Ernie Ball Beefy Slinkys and the 1mm Dunlop Tortex picks.

i'll take some photos of everything soon too and post those.

Thanks Andrew for gear post. I recently discovered Disciple's music and instantly fell in love with it. "Southern Hospitality" has got to be the best album ever written. My style lends itself towards southern rock, so you can imagine my happiness when I found it coupled with Christian values. After listening to "Lay My Burdens", I knew that had to be a Mesa, but I was surprised to see you run it through a Marshall cab. Would you say that's what gave you that precise bluesy tone?

Guys, seriously....GREAT JOB!! May God continue to bless your lives and allow people to see that He doesn't live in a box, evident by your music.
