Con grat u lations, mon frere! I bet you're stoked. I really dig the reverse headstock and pickup array, and the finish, plastic-colors and maple fretboard are all mighty appealing! She's easy on the eyes, and if even half so on the ears and fingers then you've got a really sweet axe there.
That's a really good deal, too- tempts me to consider one, as well... !
Thanks guys, the only thing I don't like about it is I can't watch myself playing it! . So far, she has been played at two local jams, and she sounds great.
I am thinking about straplocks for it. I already have a couple of sets to choose from, but I just didn't want to mess with it yet. Eventually, I think I'd like to change the tone control from the middle pickup to the bridge. I never use it where it is, and being able to back the bite on the bridge p/up would be a plus.
Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.
PULLING MY OWN TRIGGER I'm an eazy, greezy target, Pickster, & I know we have some underlying under-slying sly & under-sliding favrosities. So let me make sure no one misunderstands while i take this spot to make my final bow... ...for now, at least.... Picker is a great Cat & I hope we meet for the future when I make my vacuum comeback & backcome Vack-You'm Only 'member this I'm not the greatest [Can You say Tedster?! Can You say Lee F ?!] but even the greatest quit sometime when the time's is wrong the time is right
Hah, not meaning to rain on anyone's parade, but it reminds me of grocery trips when people keep asking the clerks which is the sweetest and I'm of course trying to achieve the opposite (for health AND for taste).
With guitars, and most instruments (drums and percussion especially), there is no such thing to my ears as "too dry", and I'm often mystified why people want MORE resonance and sustain from things. But maybe this comes from doing so much production work.
On GS, people often say they hate Strats because they're the one guitar that doesn't have sustain. But that's why even though it's the player not the instrument, I was disappointed by Nile Rodgers when he switched to a Les Paul for his tour with one of those 80's hard rock guys (I forget which one -- maybe Slash?). It changed his sound in a bad way.
Same with reggae, but I've heard clips with P90's that sound great, on LP-type guitars.
Anyway, for those who do want sustain, I think the bigger headstock is probably going to achieve a more versatile sound that still retains the characteristics of a Strat, than switching to humbuckers.
