In order to make these new recordings, I have invested in a new electric guitar. It's a Michael Kelly Valor Custom T (Amber), which is sweet as. I wanted something with twin humbuckers to complement my fat Strat (which is not a Strat) and this was the best bang for the bucks. Nice.
I also tried out Michael Kelly's Patriot Phoenix but wasn't fussed on the fretboard inlays, the fretboard feel or the overall tone - just not as nice as the Valor Custom. Nothing wrong with it ... just wasn't what I wanted. Besides, I like a trem, even if I'm crap at using them ...
So, now that I have chosen my new toy, I need to get it properly set up and get on with recording things. I have a book on the subject and will attempt the intonation myself this time - I have plenty of time but not much money ...
