Re: JS10th tone
I'll weigh in. I've got the 10th and the 1000.
And yeah through a nice valve amp, the 10th is the Satch tone in a shiny, chrome plated box. i don't have a problem with the sustain, but them I'm usually trying to fly from one note to another as quickly as possible when using my 10th.
I don't think we can say for sure the reason for Joe not using them, you're probably right in that through the rest of his rig it sounds different, but to me, through my rig, JS10th = Joe's sound, straight out of the case.
