I asked him on Facebook and this is his reply..

John Kadlecik December 12 at 6:07pm Report
haven't had a set-neck since my epiphone genesis took a spill and snapped off the headstock in '98... both my PRS's ('90 gold-top and '92 violet flame) are "EG" models with bolt-on necks... the Vantage was my first neck-thru, then the Carvin... I guess the Hohner Steinberger is a maple neck-thru also. I may bust out my Ibanez Artist semi-hollow body soon.


So looks like he's gonna be playing the Ibanez soon!

Awesome! Which one is the Vantage? Is that his Furthur back up? Haven't seen em since Sept. and he used the Carvin and I couldn't tell what the back up was.

who said you can't get jerry tones with a PRS?

i do hope most have noticed that PRS is not stock and is "Jerry" wired with dimarzio, OBEL, and preamped. big difference from a "stock" PRS.

peace,
waldo

you can get jerry tones on many many guitars with the right electronics on board. I just don't like the look of most PRS guitars - except the Archtop models with 3" sides which are discontinued - they were great

Gospel!

This point has been made before, but:

My basswood (Jerry Inspired) frankenstein can get a pretty convincing Tiger tone. Seen John use that PRS live, and it too is convincing. Although the right tone wood helps, I think the pre-amp and the Super 2s (then maybe the JBLs) are the for "important" parts of capturing the sound. Listen to the Big Guy play a lot, too. After all, his fingers are his own.

As for a stock PRS... the necks are nice.

Peace,

Good seeing you too, Jon! Twice in the space of a week... next time let's do it with guitars! :smile:

To answer a few of the questions...

John was playing with his local DC band, called - simply enough - John K Band. The lineup is:

John Kadlecik - guitar, vocal
Scott Fitzpatrick - drums
Katy Gaughan - percussion
Paul Grepps - keyboards
Larry Joseloff - bass

Plus, they had a bunch of Katy's (who is John's wife and has a killer local band of her own called Djesben) percussion freak friends sit in. Big fun!

Their setlist was: John K Band - Dec 11, 2010:
1: Nobody Told Me, Tin Roof Shack, What's Become of Mary, Any Road, Way to Go Home, TWLWMYD*, Cleaning Windows*, Feel Like Dynamite*
2: How Sweet It Is*, Sister Smiles, Seen Love, The Business, Women are Smarter, Last Fair Deal Goin' Down, Thus Spoke Zarathustra> Drums+> Walking in Your Footsteps+, Fast Enough for You, Second That Emotion
E: Everybody's Trying+

Here's the rig he was playing through:

and the pedal board:

His Furthur rig now lives on the Furthur equipment truck.

I'll have the audio posted tonight sometime, but suffice to say that this is John doing things on his own schedule and it's a ton of fun, great great music. There's video on Youtube, but the sound isn't all that great.

As for sounding like Jerry... John's found a tone he's comfortable with and has expanded considerably on it. At times he's Trey-like too, but the overall evaluation has to be that he's just John being John... which is some wicked good shit. :hail:

I did the same thing with my PRS EG bolt-on back before I ever heard of DSO:

I was pretty happy with how it worked for Jerry stuff.
I got all the crucial info (Super IIs, UGB, etc.) directly from David Fontaine back around 1995.

DL - John's playing an "acoustic w/friends" set at Bossa Lounge after Katy's Djesben set this Thursday in Adams Morgan, DC. Don't know about anything else, but I'll post it if I hear about it.
