Here's a picture of my CE22. Red doesn't seem to photograph very well. It's a much nicer top when you see it in person. I didn't know until after I got it, but it's a sorta transition model. It was made in the period of time between the switch from Alder to Mahogany for the bodies, and before they s...

New baby for me too.

It's a kinda belated birthday/reenlistment present. I ordered it back in August, just after my July birthday, but I paid for it with the money I got when I Reenlisted in the Mil a few weeks ago. I shouldn't have received any money for reupping, so it was a total blessing from God! Anyway, it arrived...

No, the 24 fret neck actually IS longer. Look at the body of the two. Specifically, the distance between the pickups. That distance is shorter on the 24 fret models.

No prob!

Actually, if you look carefully at them, you'll find that the 22 and 24 fret models are completely different guitars. The neck is set further into the 22 fret models and that makes pretty much everything line up differently.

Can anyone tell the difference between a ce 22 and ce 24? The CE22 has Dragons or dragon II's. Dragon I's are uncovered and they were standard until '98 IIRC, Dragon II's are covered. The 24 has uncovered HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups on it. The 22 has a shorter, stiffer neck because more of ...

Yes, Dragon I's are hotter than II's.

I'm expecting the delivery of an SC250 today. They say that the 250 pickups are hotter than Dragons without being muddy. We have a gig tonight and hopefully I'll be able to play it at the show.

Tone report and pics at the earliest convenience . . .

What about warmth redmax? Does it give it a little warmer of a tone? I feel like sometimes my DR is a little harsh and in my face and was hoping to tone that down some. Also did you just swap the power tubes or do a whole tube swap of everything(Like eurotube's kits). Yes, it is most definitely war...

I've been running EL-34's in mine almost since it was new back in 2002. I've really come to like the sound of it a lot. The last time I retubed, I switched to JJ EL-34L's and I like the sound of them even more. The JJ's give back some of the bottom end that you lose going from a 6L6 to an EL-34. The...

The pickups are made in Taiwan by PRS specs. I wouldn't call them inferior because they don't squeal and they don't suck. In fact, they do sound pretty decent. However, I switched mine out because I prefer hotter pickups like the Dragon I's. BTW, I also have a CE, and it's a killer guitar. CE's are ...

As an owner of both, I think the SE's are great guitars! There are obviously differences between the Korean made and American made models, but the Korean guitars go through the same QC process at the factory in Stevensville, Md. And if there are any problems that can't immediately be fixed, they get...

I own 2 DRs (R11750 and R406) they are very different amps but to me both of them sound better with EL34s. For an heavy rythm tone the EL34s are the way to go but if you mainly play leads than you should stick with 6L6s. EL34s will thighten things up and will give you a bit of a more agressive meta...

I'm using JJ EL-34L's in mine. They have a little more bottom end than most other EL-34's. IMHO, going to EL-34's in a DR is a drastic improvement over 6L6's.

BTW, I use a pair of THD Yellowjackets (EL-84's) with the 34's in my DR. That combination is amazing!

See, I'm kinda in the opposite place now. As a matter of fact, I could probably use your expertise in Linux. I had to replace my primary digital audio computer back in April because I was having video issues, so I decided to get a Core2duo machine from Dell. I got it with Vista because it would have...

What Charlie said. I would actually start on amps by modding either a stock Fender Champ or Epiphone Valve Junior. They're easy amps to work on, and they're an open canvas for mods. The next step would be to build one from scratch. I'd recommend starting with a kit amp - just to take the hassle of h...
