Chasing Oscar!

Doug playing Mr. OscarWatch the Show

Can you really tell the difference between a highly prized vintage Gibson from the fifties and a re-issue? How about those high priced boutique PAF clones you’re thinking about buying, how do they stack up to the real deal? How about if you could hear them all playing the same song by the same player through the same amp recorded exactly the same way? Welcome to “Chasing Oscar”, written and recorded by Doug and Pat for exactly that purpose: to hear how a 2013 R9 might compare to the original 1958 PAF equipped Les Paul known as “Oscar” or a Custom Shop Les Paul Special to an original 1956. How do those expensive boutique “PAF” style pickups sound when you put them in an affordable guitar compared to the icons of the guitar world? You get the idea. Let’s take this journey together and please, come back often as we’ll be adding more guitars and more pickups every week. “Chasing “Oscar”, need we say more?
OK we will, if you want more information about what you hear just email us at…
