a Les Trem II for my Jaguar Special HH

I added a Duesenberg Les Trem II vibrato to my Jaguar Special HH  (my concert guitar) and I'm very happy with it! Never been a big whammy bar user, but lately I started to feel the need for it, either for improvised music (can't work with 10 new guitarists without picking new tricks here and there) or for some songs I keep composing even though I didn't record or perform any so far… 

A Jaguar usually comes with its trademark vibrato but the Special HH has a stock hardtail, with still enough room behind the bridge to produce chiming sounds… I was afraid that the Les Trem might damage the sound or at least make the guitar easily out of tune but it's not the case, I'm 100% content with it… I still plan to change the bridge for a Turnomatic roller one, now that I'm sure to keep the trem.

Music of the week: I listened to plenty of new things lately but I must pack my stuff and go rehearsing for the next SPEV concert so I just pick one band I just discovered on YouTube: Kill it Kid, kind of young Dead Weather… 

I hope that their next tour will bring them to Vienna, because I want to see this kind of stuff on stage, and most of the bands I love don't seem to know the place… Come on, we have the UN office here!

Sorry for the scarce posting of the last weeks, I've been quite busy with music, practicing and composing and organizing thinks for my new band the Soft Power Ensemble of Vienna (that would be my music of the week) - I should be able to announce our next concerts very soon.
Also the Epsilon process showed some difficulties that are now overcome…
