Always have an eye out for hardtail Strats and Dallas-era Schecter teles.
Cool! What model Schecter?
That's an excellent question.
It's a Rickenbacker 360/12 with vintage binding (Think 63C 'Harrison' in McGuinn natural finish), and it is as...
I hear ya. I thought I'd come around to it but I never did.
BTW-It's a Ric 360/12WB in MapleGlo. So, it's kind of a cross between a McGuinn and...
I really don't quite know what to do about this.
I've got a great guitar that is a pristine example of what it is, it plays flawlessly.
I bought a red sparkle one of these because I couldn't find a champaign!!
These things are Les Paul destroyers! GLWS
The Clapton circuit isn't a 'turn it all to 10 and off ya go...' circuit.
Once you get the feel for how interactive the volume, TBX and mid-boost...

TV Jones pickups reignited my love for Telecasters.
You'll wonder how you ever played a Tele without them.
The truth is the V neck is why I've stayed with Fender designs pretty much all my life.
If I could get a Les Paul or a Firebird with a V neck I...
The guitars in my collection that I play have V necks.
That's why I play them.
I'd also look into Fralin SP42 for your bridge.
No splitting needed, very sensitive to your volume pot and puts you into a great Strat w/ a P90...
I used to have a wide variety in my collection.
Now I just have a Les Paul Std and pre-Fender Gretsch Sparkle Jet which do pretty similar things...
I don't know if Geoff Benge is still in Chicago but if he is, his work is simply on another level.
I'd also check out Avenue N Guitars on North...
If we're talking production models that you can get now....Clapton Strat.
No question, by leaps and freakin' bounds. Perfect neck and if you...
I guess I never strayed far from my original reasons for picking up a guitar.
My first 'good' guitar was a '73 Telecaster...
