    I would describe it as a "warmer, rounder" tone. I don't crank it up, but it's a lot easier to get that sustained controlled feedback.


    Not as much as your new spruce top I'm sure, but more so than a regular solid body. Probably similar to your SE semi from Dave's.
    Too bad I'm not in the Chicago area or I'd let you borrow it for a minute.

    I have one of the S2 Velas from the reclaimed run, and...yes, you do!

    That said, I liked the regular S2 Vela a fair bit more than the S2 Starla. I was waiting for the right Vela to come along when the reclaimed run was announced. I wanted a gold sparkle one - I almost bought one at Brian's last year, but I'd already bought the Holcomb. My wife even said to do it, but I apparently had an attack of what some people call "willpower". That one stuck in my mind for a long time.

    What is this "willpower" that you speak of?

    That's just it - I don't understand it either. I think it's a made up word.

    Oh, it's a made up word, at least in my case. You know, that VR Vela is a little bit sparkly gold....
