Coming soon – I am talking to various potential partners (only the best will do !)
Finding The Right Guitar
Finding the right guitar is a very personal journey. It’s a great journey to take though if you keep an open mind. There a few a basic things that a guitar has to do for you for it to be perfect in my humble opinion and actually you can have more than one! there is no rule book on this – even if there was, the typical guitarist would want to break it !
For me it’s like this:
It’s got to feel right – gotta fit my skinny long fingers and sit against my bony hips just so!
It’s got to deliver the sound I like without too much tweaking – I’m a humbucker man by choice but I can live with the single coil sound if it’s hits me the right way. I’ve just never been able to drag the sound I want from my Strat – the sound other players seem to get quite easily.
It’s got to look right (but I’m broad minded)
That’s seriously about all I personally need (apart from a good strap) and after years of experimenting and hundreds of guitars it’s a Les Paul for me. That’s just me though. If my old Washburn Chicago with
the Floyd Rose whammy bar, locking nut and coil tapped humbuckers hadn’t been nicked from my car one night after a gig I’d still be playing that or something similar but my trusty no-frills LP studio has done me proud for many years now.
