I was at a music store owned by a friend and just looking around as I hadn't been in in a while, suddenly he handed me from his own collection a 54 Strat hard tail, one piece body, that was pristine, and sounded like you would imagine. Amazing how rounded all of the edges on the headstock etc were when these were sanded totally by hand. It sounded "cleaner" to me than my 57, but just a bit. Then he replaced it with a 52 LP that had a great neck and sound, especially the neck p90--and some of those actually don't have great necks. Then a 28 Martin D-18--light as a feather and warm and resonant. What a Day!!
