Hey guys. I'm currently putting together a good rig that'll get me through any situation. I pretty much have my pedalboard together, I have a Mesa Booge Subway Rocket that does a great job live and in the studio, and I have a Mexi Tele that I'm going to mod with a mini-bucker in the neck and a Fralin single in the bridge. I'll have a good range of tones on that one. My other guitar is a Hagstrom Deluxe-F. It's semi-hollow with 2 60's style humbuckers. The main problem with this guitar is that I can't intonate it properly. I mean, what do I want...it's made in China. Well, it's now time for me to buy a professional instrument as I play for my living. I've had a McCarty in the past but felt the neck was too big. Lately I've been looking at Les Pauls as I definately want that duals humbucker, classic sound in my arsenal. I played my brothers Deluxe and a friends Classic. Loved them both. My problem is this, this next guitar will be the last one for a while and, even with my tele, will be without the true strat sound. Should I comprimise and get something like a Suhr or Anderson with a HSS configuration or just stick with the Tele Paul combo I'm thinking of. Thanks.
