John was cool enough to send me a ts-5 he modded to try out. I love the sounds I'm getting from it, theyre much smoother than what my amp can do. I'm not a great reviewer, so I made a clip. I'll let the guitar do the talking.
To record, I went Squier strat (neck pup) --> TS-5--> Peavey amp --> Shure SM57 --> Cool Edit Pro
