This questions has been asked several times so I suppose I should answer it!What do you usually play? I'm mostly a Fender player and had a similar experience with LPs until I played one with P90s.
Try the '14 Melody Maker. They are awesome and have "slug" P90s with magnetic polepieces like a Fender pickup.
If you ever see a Heritage LP type, try it you might be pleasantly surprised.Well, I put down a little money on a BARELY used Fender Strat American Special (the cheaper ones)
The guy bought it less than 2 months ago and had GC install a Duncar hot bar pickup (?) in the bridge. It's the natural wood, maple neck and matte/no laquer finish.
What a GREAT playing guitar, really loved it. They had it for $549, and wouldn't budge. They got it in 48 hours ago and it's really worth every penny.
I played some more LP's and just couldn't bond - I'm thinking I'll have to wait for the guitar to come to ME, instead of the other way around, as I'm just not having much luck!
Thanks for the responses fellas!
