picked up replacement for S2020xav

i just re-strung (10-52), set-up action ect., oiled the neck and polished it really clean - a (practically NEW!) Parker Fly P-38. it is black w/ a white pearloid guard. she is very nice and i got a VERY fair deal. i needed an electric that sounds like an acoustic for my duo gigs. i have a very nice Tacoma DM16 CE2 that plays and sounds great but i like to be able to do bends and leads (ala Hendrix) and the acoustic wears me out. i still use the Tacoma but swap back and forth a lot.
i'll post feedback after i try her out at the gig tonight. she sounded great thru a Peavey Ecoustic 110 and split into an Ampeg JetII. very impressed so far.....

Music is something bigger and greater than myself and I'm just glad to be a part of it. -TJ

i used the Fly with a stereo Y cable sending the acoustic signal to a Peavey Ecoustic 110 EFX (AWESOME amp!!) and the electric signal to my Ampeg Jet II (15wtt 1x12 class A tube amp) and being able to blend both signals sounded HUGE! i got a lot of compliments on the tone(s). i actually didn't pick up my Tacoma for the whole gig- and the gig is an acoustic duo!
i would like to get the frets crowned and polished to be able to have the action a bit lower. i put Ernie Ball 10-52 strings on her and that wasn't wise . my hand is pretty sore as i'm usually using 10-48 or mostly 9-42 on most of my electric guitars. my finger tips are a bit raw and my index finger on my fret hand is very stiff and a little sore at the nuckle.
i'll put standard 10's on her and i should be o.k.. i do like the guitar and it will stay in the "family".
stay tuned for next time when you here me say, "I just got my Ibanez RG620x!"....same bat channel, same bat time... (it will be here next week)
