I have played a strat for many years now, but am feeling the itch after watching a recent dvd to diversify my tones. I know the Les Paul is a good place to start, but what would be the top 3 axes for a little woody bite/tone but still creamy that will still solo nice in a blues context. The strat I have is a maple neck fender deluxe strat with SD aps-1's and a ssl-5 in the bridge... it really nails hendrix tones for me. But rather than go with another strat for the SRV thing, id like to go with a different make and a humbucker pickup arrangement. I dont know if this is a good approach to getting some ideas as I dont need 1000 options, but from what Ive stated here maybe it will throw me in the general direction. Thanks!!!
