    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.

    Does Ernie Ball Music Man have any....

    I'm 6'4" / 250 lbs; I don't look in the mirror when I play, so how the guitar looks on me is irrelevant. I have a rosewood Albert Lee and I don't have a problem getting around on the guitar. The quality of the guitar and the tonal capabilities over came any short comings. I have guitars with...

    When it is DiMarzio vs Seymour Duncan...

    I like them both. I have True Velvet neck and middle pickups paired with a Duncan '59 in my Gibson U-2 and they sound fantastic. I have Dimarzio humbuckers in my Albert Lee Music Man that I also like. I had a Parker Nitefly with Dimarzio's, that didn't impress me (i think it was more the...

    Baja Tele mods

    I think the stock pickups are one of the best features of the guitar. I love the Twisted Tele neck pickup; it's one of my favorite tele pickups of all time.

    Rickenbacker 360

    I've never bought from Dave's, but I agree that the chances of having a lemon come from Wildwood or Sweetwater (not a Rick dealer - btw) would be far less. I still don't think dealers should have to act as QC inspectors. FWIW, I'm not terribly picky when it comes to guitars. As long as a...
