Years ago I was happy with my DRRI and a pedal, a 1980 LP Gold top and a Japanese strat. Came to the forum and everything changed, I thought I was inadequate with the equipment I had, went through 5 or 6 Historic LP and a bunch of USA strats, not to mention I don't know how many amps. I don't know what came over me but recently I picked up a 7 year old Godin SP90 for $300 and a $199 Crate V3112, jammed with a few guys and I can't believe the tones I'm getting. Gotta be kidding, no way, the guitar plays as smooth as butter and the amp in a band situation sounds awesome, I've had worse tones gigging with a Carr Slant 6 and a 59RI LP. Either I lucked out and this is a freak of nature or all the extras that I thought would make a difference in my playing don't mean squat. What a revelation, it felt like a burden being lifted from my shoulders. No more penis envy. I'm happy.
