Fender Telecaster Reissue ’52 Custom Shop – Test / Review

Fender Telecaster Reissue ’52 Custom Shop – Test / Review
Guitar review by Have Guitar

My partner in crime (when it comes to a fascination of guitars!) Klas came around with a surprise the other day. I kinda suspected what it was from the tweed case he had in his car and lo and behold: it was Fender Telecaster Reissue 52 Custom Shop from 2014! It had a little relic from the factory but not so much that it was disturbing (me not being a fan of factory relicing really!).

So, we spent a couple of hours playing this Tele and man; was I impressed! And so was Klas as he hadn’t that much time in it. It just sounded great with any profile we loaded up in my Kemper, from clean worshiptones to full metal higain stuff! And so we decided to make test/review video of this Fender Tele and to my delight Klas also joined in on the video – very fun to have someone to talk to during the video and I hope you’ll like that too!

I have been looking around for the spec’s of this particular guitar but the closest I’ve come across is the general spec’s of a ’52 Telecaster and as this should follow that pretty closely here it is:

Body: Ash
Neck: One-Piece Bolt-On Maple
Number of Frets: 21
Position Inlays: Black Dot
Radius: 7.25″
Pickups: Two Single-Coil Pickups with Volume and Tone Controls
Switching: 3-Position Switch
Bridge: 3-Saddle Strings-Through-Body Bridge with Brass Saddles
Pickguard: 1-Ply Black
(Borrowed from: https://areyouexperiment.wordpress.com/2017/05/20/fender-52-telecaster-reissue/)

For the sound we’re playing through my Kemper, hooked up to my Focusrite soundcard via SPDIF (stereo) and recorded in Reaper. I have used profiles from the following profilers: ReampZone, Live Ready Sound, SinMix, Mattfig, TMS Profiles and ToneJunkie. Tried to pick a varied selection of sounds from clean to metal to give you wide overview of what the Tele is capable of.

So, I certainly hope you like this video and feel free to support my channel by a subscription! And as always a Very Big Thanks goes out to all you who subscribe – Thank You!

Kemper Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here is a slightly different episode of Have Guitar’s Kemper Rig Showcase as the BE-2017 Baked Chicken Experiment V22 profile pack by Live Ready Sound is a slightly different pack. First of all it is HUGE! As this video was recorded it contained over 200 profiles and it’s still growing with new updates being sent out! Also it’s an experimental pack that will develop over time with user feedback. So, I decided to do more than video of this pack!

This is the second video of the Baked Chicken (gotta love that name!) and there will be one more. Check out Live Ready Sound’s webpage (link below) for more details, as this profile pack has a ton of different cabs and mic’s used. The amplifier behind this is the famous Friedman BE-100, which is a very capable amp for all kinds of sounds. Very impressive amplifier and so is this profile pack!

I do hope you liked this video and do by all means support Have Guitar by subscribing, the support is very appreciated! A very big Thanks goes out to all and everyone who is subing!

Kemper Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Welcome to yet another Rig Showcase from Have Guitar! I’m happy to bring you a demo of a fine Kemper profile pack from Tone Junkie – ACE 15HW.

This pack trying to recreate the sound from a VOX AC15 amplifier (kill me if I’m wrong on that!) and this pack gives you 44 Studio profiles for your KPA. As I say in the video, ToneJunkie seems to deliver every time… and this is no exception as I hope to prove with this demo video. Don’t expect metal but there are some gain to be had together with a sweet tone and very good variation throughout the profiles.

Hope you liked this video – subscribe for more guitar madness from Have Guitar! To all you who are subscribing – Thank You, your support is great!

6SOS by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)

6SOS by TMS Profiles (Kemper profiles demo)
Kemper Rig showcase by Have guitar

So here’s a demo of the 6SOS Kemper profile pack from TMS Profiles – and yup, that is of course based on a Peavey 6505 amplifier. And yes again, this is a brute made for harder side of the force. Still it’s a brute made affordable, you can get the 120 watt head for under 1000 euros – and in tube amp territory that ain’t that expensive!

This profile pack comes loaded with 77 studio profiles and 7 direct profiles, profiled using seven different cab’s and some even boosted with TS808 or MXR Badass OD. Variety and brute force joined together, but it’s not all metal… there some cleaner sounds to be found within TMS Profiles pack as well. Anyways, have a look at the video to hear them with you own two ears.

Kemper Rig showcase by Have guitar

Here’s a Rig Showcase on the full Redwood City Fire profile pack from Live Ready Sound. I have demo’d the FX addon (by me!) previously but as said here in the full pack demo. The Redwood City Fire is recreating the sound of a Panama Fuego amplifier, and in this Kemper profile pack you will get 56 studio profiles plus the FX addon (10 profiles). All in all a very nice acquaintance with its own character and style! Just great profiles, as LRS states on their website.

JTM50 1966 Black Flag by Burns (Free Kemper profiles demo)

JTM50 1966 Black Flag by Burns (Free Kemper profiles demo)
Kemper Rig showcase by Have guitar

Free stuff is nice but sometimes it can be really hard to dig out the good stuff, especially in a place like Rig Exchange – spend 5 seconds with each profile there and you have 992 hours in front of you!

Yeah, well – that ain’t realistic and that’s how I came up with idea so showcase some of the free Kemper profiles that I like – maybe you will too! When I find one I’ll make a video on it if I like it. This time it’s another Marshall JTM50 from 1966 and this is the second time I feature that model on this feature. However, there’s a big difference between these profiles even if they come from the same amp model and that is what make’s them interesting to me!

There are eight of these nice profiles available and in this video I’ll demo four them – leaving something for you to discover for yourself… So, again – a big thanks to David for sharing these fine profiles with us! And hey. if you like this video, why not subscribe to Have Guitar! Your support is more important than you might think and every sub counts. To all of you already subscribing – Thank You!!!

To find these Kemper profiles; start up your Rig Manager, go to Rig Exchange and search for “Burns” and you will get all the profiles listed and ready to play! Have fun!

New Spring Reverb FX in the Kemper Profiling Amp (Beta preview)

New Spring Reverb FX in the Kemper Profiling Amp

Yup, that’s right if anyone missed the news… that isn’t that new really. But here’s me trying out the new Spring Reverb effect in the Kemper, based on the Fender Reverb Tank from 1963. And I must say it sounds great!

Should point out that this is a beta, a preview – I forgot to mention that in the video. So this is Profiler Operating System 5.6.2 Spring Reverb Preview that requires Rig Manager’s 2.1.25 revision. Beta’s are installed at your own perill…

Another interesting thing is that you can place this reverb anywhere in the FX chain; put it infront of the amp for a gritty, distorted sound or place it behind the amp for a clean stereo reverb.

And if you read this far – don’t miss out on the Mattfig Giveaway, I have three packs of Mattfig’s Trust Pack (four different packs of Kemper profiles) to giveaway. Today (28/6-2018) is the last day to join so if you wanna get a chance to win some free commercial profiles check out the link to that video below.
