I have been using an American Deluxe Tele for about 2 years now and have LOVED playing it. I recently gave away a Les Paul Studio and I'm not sure I want to go back to Les Paul so soon (although I love the new burstbuckers in the 2008 Standard). I'm looking at either an american deluxe strat ash or some kind of hollow body (either Gibson or Gretsch). I'm up for any recomendations. I like Lincoln Brewster, Hillsong United, U2, Mute Math, stuff like that. The Deluxe strat is SOO stinkin versatile but I've always wanted a Gretsch (soo expensive!). I was chekin out the 5120 but from what I've read I would need to upgrade the pickups (to get the same quality tone I'm accustomed to)... not too encouraging. I've done some research on the Duo Jet and all I've read are good things. I'm torn! Thoughts anyone?
