… And realized why it was a go-to instrument when I played in a pop-rock group in Modesto.
It has a really cool Fender crossed with Rickenbacker tone. It’s clearly a rosewood fretboard with a maple neck, but I have no idea what the body wood is.
Like on most emandos, the e course is a bit weak relative to the other strings. That weakness makes the e course sound a bit ‘plinky’ too. Running a bit of compression balances things out and brings out the tone in the e course. Monday night at practice was the first time I figured that one out. So I’m pleased about that.
And it likes a bit of overdrive. 🙂
Changing strings is a massive pain. I think these may be 10 years old now.
