Well...I really didn't think I'd ever actually do it, but....I think I've officially become the second person in Colorado to ever play live with a Crystal Planet! (2nd behind Joe himself a couple of weeks ago!) *Yes...it's quite heavy. *But...I played it for the entire set! *It was just a 1 hour opening set, but...I just couldn't put it down! *I've even got the red mark on my shoulder to prove it. *
Tone: *OH yeah...it's there! *I had my trusty Strat as a backup...but didn't need it! *I ran it through my Matchless Chieftain half-stack and my pedal board, and it just sang! *Incredible sustain as well...I must say, I'm quite impressed! *It performed extremely well, and emerged without so much as a single scratch. *A few fingerprints, but...still looks to be brank spankin' new.
Looks: *EVERYBODY, including the members from the other two bands, HAD to see it up close after the set! *I got nothing but the best of compliments on both the sound and the appearance of the CP. * *Don't know how often I'll actually gig with it, but...it's DEFINITELY worthy!
Did have a few people say that they couldn't even see it a few times though...too cool!
Comfort: *Well..it's heavy. *But...it really didn't bother me after a few songs! *The tone and overall playability more than made up for it. *
E-mail me if you want a pic!
The CP ROCKS!
