    Your Fav Fender Sig Guitar & Why..

    I love my EJ 3 Color Sunburst from Wildwood. Best Strat I've ever played. I love the specs on this guitar. I'm not a huge fan of EJ's work, but he can spec out a guitar. I also have an Albert Lee Music Man HH with the rosewood neck that I'm not crazy about. I'll probably swap out the...

    Epi Casino...anyone play/own one?

    I have the inspired by Lennon Casino. I absolutely love this guitar. It plays and sounds great. One can cover a lot of ground by just rolling back the volume knob.

    Let's change it up then ... what characteristic within a specific brand lets you down

    Rickenbacker 360 - Absolutely the worst guitar I've ever played. I really wanted to like this guitar, but the neck was twisted (so much for the double truss rod).

    When did this start happening for you ? The Gear

    I went to a school for the arts in the '80's. My classmates and I had Charvels, Jacksons, Kramers, ESPs, and anything with a pointy head stock. About mid way through my sophomore year, we had a transfer student come in with a real deal 50's gold top. We snickered at his choice of hardware...

    Do you prefer signature guitars?

    I think the EJ Strat is the best bang for the buck guitar in Fender's line-up. I also like that it doesn't scream I'm a signature guitar; the only clues being the neck plate and the lack of string trees.

    Worst guitar you've owned so far?

    Rickenbacker 360 x 2. I ordered one and the neck was twisted. I returned it and ordered another one and the neck was worse. It's a real shame too, because I've always loved the aesthetics and sounds these guitars produce.

    I'm tired of signature guitars

    I have two signature guitars; an Eric Johnson Strat and an Albert Lee RWMM. Although, I respect and Mr. Johnson and Mr. Lee, I wouldn't say that I am a huge fan of their music, but I am a huge fan of the specs on the guitars. I don't care if it's a signature guitar or not. If it has the specs...

    Cleaning 'yellowed' humbucker bobbins?

    That's called mojo; remove it and the pickup will most definitely sound awful.
