Super Bee SB-68 2017

Documenting activities. SB-68 June 2017. There were twelve in total, obviously all went to Tommy's Guitar Shop being that's his custom digs.
All had Mullard OC82D's under the hood. Biased and tuned a little differently from the previous batch, which was August 2015. They were tuned a hotter with a faster attack, less stout in the lows and eased back a little on the output. I'd say it gives the yellow bugger a greater degree of flexibility and dynamic control, especially with humbuckers, the 2015 batch slayed with single coils but seemed to fatigue a little with humbuckers. The output is still plenty formidable and still plants a firm and heavy slug to the gut, now it just pats you on your back as you pick yourself up of the floor.

All were yellow, though two ever so slightly different shades there off. Yup, that fucked with the OCD no end. No bug eyes, chickeny beaks for accuracy. Gotta go fast.

Woah! Had reoccurring thoughts of getting that Canary Yellow(#FFEF00). :errr:
Tommy came through and pulled a Bumble Bee Yellow (#FAEE06) for me! :phew:

Has any one noticed that the bees with OC82Ds don’t reach unity volume?

also, how loud do you have your amp? from my experience the louder the LOUDER/BETTER.

YMMV
