Ken Beason said that my 103K Mark VI was one of the darkest he had ever played. Not stuffy, but dark. He described it as dark and very powerful. That was fine by me, in line with my sound concept at the time. Not so much today. It's outfitted with plastic flat resos and I'm wondering to what extent large domed metal resos might brighten it. I expect I would have to repad it, but that's okay because I'd like to outfit it with roo pads anyway, because I like their feel.
How does it compare to your Borgani Jubilee experiences?

Mouthpieces will make a bigger difference than reso's.

George, please whisper the words "Borgani Jubilee" very quietly to spare me an acute attack of gas. In terms of comparison - very different animals, each with their own thing to offer. I love Borganis, have seen a couple of Borgs on the web and been tempted. Would prefer to play one first next time around. Ideally would like to pick one in the factory. On the other hand, if yours ever goes up for sale, email me first.
Borg' collective news: One of our SotW brethern PM'd me about a new Jubilee that sounds pretty interesting (black/silver) - I hope that he, too, joins the collective soon.

Regarding mine: I intend to will it to my children but will leave a note to send it to you if neither has any interest in it. Until then...

Be well. The collective misses you and we will continue to try to entice you back. It's a kinder, gentler collective these days - we only want you if you choose to be among us. Anything else gives us all a headache.

Leon, since you had Ken Beason working on your horn, what does he suggest?

Metal resos? Oversize metal resos? Borgani? :twisted:

Have you talked to Randy Jones about it? Perhaps a road trip to try some necks?

At least when trying necks, you can get a good sense of the difference right away - the bonus is that it is reversible.

Or maybe I'll just give up these funk gigs, stick with a kinder gentler music, and trade the VI for a Borg. How's that sound Dr. G?
Whatever makes you happy will thrill me, Leon. I just want to see you happy after all the trials and tribulations that you've experienced.

Who says you can't get funky on a Jubilee? Give Tim Price a holler and have him Skype you a demo of that gold plate Jubilee that he's sellin'.

I'm betting he'll get funky at the drop of a fedora.
