The Arc6-B is here!

Brown just came to the door a while ago (UPS) and delivered my new Spector Arc6-B. I can’t thank Stuart enough for this AMAZING guitar. Like, yeah, as if I really need another guitar, but… We don’t have a Spector GUITAR hon, just basses! Photos on the bottom.

This one is a bit special in that, thanks to the folks at DiMarzio, there’s a pair of Nickel EJ Custom pickups Neck and Bridge. The story goes that these were made for Eric Johnson to fit in a hum bucking slot to give him that Gretsch twang out of his hum bucker equipped guitars.

Oh, need I mention… The VibraMate to which is mounted a USA Bigsby B5. The Twangmaster for the New Millennium.

Since this was a NAMM show guitar, it got played, MAN did it get played. The strings were shot. No worries, I had a plan anyway. Andrea from Dogal made me up some sets of Vintage Flatwound R67D in .010-.046″ with FLATWOUND D-A-E6. SWEET! Strung up and ready to go, I quickly headed into iMac land.

 

 

 

Here are some sound bites. (I did them pretty quick and I ain’t no Scott, so please bear with my playing). The drums are courtesy EZ Drummer and the bass is a CZ hand built P Bass with Nordstrand pickups and a Raven’s Lab P Bass Pre (try and find one of those on eBay!)/

A CCR lick and some High Heeled Sneakers a la Todd (in 5 minutes or less) using the Bridge pickup. Drums are EZ Drummer Vintage Rock and Roll, same P bass. Me on the guitar and vocals. Bridge pickup through Model 1958 Marshall Combo (not the year the model) and some reverb and vibrato.
