    Most overrated vintage guitar?

    I played a '60 and a '65 Strat last weekend at a well known dealer in NYC... Both played like crap. The '65 was the better guitar but both had very old strings and were not setup. It is beyond me why some (most) dealers don't take the time to make vintage guitars play as well as possible... I'm...

    La Bella Benders Strings - Anyone tried them yet?

    I just put a set of these on a Les Paul and I am very impressed! Brought the guitar to life. Love the tension, harmonics and feel. Very loud unplugged. Normally use D’Addario .10s. .

    Tom Bukovac: people who want original frets on their vintage guitars aren’t thinking about it correctly.

    All I want is for the guitar to have that singing/vibrating ‘feeling’ when chording in the first position... It seems like the G always has to be slightly flat and I guess the 5ths B and E to be in tune to the G... Don’t know... Some guitars just have that intense vibration when chording in the...

    Can you expand on this? I find intonation maddening.... Better to be flat than sharp?

    Vintage Strat setups

    I straightened the neck to roughly .004” and lowered the action to ~5/64’... feels great and very playable... good tension and good harmonic ‘halo’ from the 5 springs... Done... for now :cool:

    Vintage Strat setups

    I'm back again... sorry to keep this going... :cool: I tried the "more wraps" method... 3 post lengths on the E, A B and E strings... Could only get 4 post lengths on the D and 5 on the G... It did provide a stiffer feel... can I say 'better'? Not really... just different. It took a good 45...

    Vintage Strat setups

    Yes, I too noticed the softening of the notes (perfect description btw) and I also wasn't thrilled with it. Felt looser. I am going to try the McCready style of more wraps to try to tighten up the tension and feel... In another search I found a thread on the Tele Forum where Rob DiStefano (I...

    Vintage Strat setups

    I'm just not clear on the string tree... do I want it to exert downward pressure (i.e., wind strings up on the posts) or is it OK if it is barely affecting the angle to the post (if I wind the strings down). I could try a smaller spacer?
