...on whatever projects or gigs. Guitars that are in the moment for you. I've been digging my ash/ebony Charvel "Nuno" San Dimas guitar with L500XL/'59. I bought it to get as close as possible to having the Washburn N4 without having to spend $3-4K. There is a nice edge to the 500 that is unique (especially in the upper register), never even a hint of mud. It's very bridgey, which only makes the round neck sound of the '59 seem more of a contrast than an average combo and works well with the factory push-pull coil splitting. DYNAMITE fretwork and raw neck feel on this one. My Edwards unofficial "Rhoads" Les Paul Custom with covered JB/'59 and slim 60s style neck. The JB sounds better in a Les Paul to me than anywhere else. I had to take a plunge and buy this direct from Japan via ebay based purely on internets reviews and have no regrets. The result? It soon had a brother, the official Edwards John Sykes Les Paul Custom model, with a slightly beefier neck and Duncan Distortion set, which give this guitar more of a raging bull personality. I'll cheat (this is TGP) and call this one entry since I've been mostly playing the white one lately. I wanted a fully traditional Strat (my first), specifically a '79 style but with jumbo frets and 4-bolt for going into Roger Fisher mode with a side of Don Felder. This ash Fender American Performer is easily the glassiest, cleanest sounding guitar I've ever had, sparkles even when unplugged. Very, very nice for chords especially. Still breaking this one in, but any relic effect in the future will be the result of me playing it---a LOT.
