    Do you really care how you get your tone?

    effects really get annoying for me in a hurry, so I would replace the pups over a treble boost. I have lindy fralins blues specials so a dark pup is a nice option. but I also have several gutiars to chose from

    MIJ '62RI Strat - Value and any good?

    mine in a sunburst burst 62 ri 96 mij, beautiful, unreliable as hell, soft wood on a photograph, dings and screws falling out, looks good on a stand, really can not make it a main guitar. really would avoid this crap, it looks great, but junk wood makes it useless.

    To buy or not to buy

    buy a new lp its has a life time warranty, so if you tend to keep your guitars like I do buying new is not a bad idea, also your not dealing with some one elses mistakes, you can create your own. I have always owned lps and strats, think most every one here has that combination, so find one...

    info about this "LP Special"..

    have owned a couple of the LP specials, $600 is probably a top price for a used special, if its in good shape and you like it fine, needs a hardshell case for that, most specials came new with a gigbag and we owners upgrade to a hard shell case, if its a gigbag $550 would be better price. the...

    Help Picking Out An SG

    my 71 SG was a baritone, with a thin neck, might find some thing like that, a long necked SG with the high fret access is insane, vibrato out the ass, dive bombs were too much fun with that guitar.

    Looking for reccomendations; buying a semi-hollow!!

    have the epi sheraton II, looks good, though the Ibanez have pups that I prefer over the epis, I was going to replace the pups in the epi sheraton, which is a pain in a semi hollowbody, probably better with the ibanez if you like the pups.

    Kinman or Fralins?

    would not use a youtube video for pickup selection, the amp really effects the tone of a pickup, my fralin blues specials are excellent, the base plate on the bridge pup really gets the tone aggresive, I have a couple strats, so the darker blues tone is great, probably go with the brighter...
