A lot of us tend to find our handful of preferred guitars, amps, stompboxes and what-have-you and stick to it. But, every so often, something way outside that circle can be a really pleasant surprise, I'm curious what experiences you all have like that. For me it was an LTD MH-103QM. I picked one up used on a whim for about $160 in great condition and with an SD JB already in the bridge position. I'm not much of an S-type guy, usually don't get along well with "shredder" fiddles, tend away from 3 pickup guitars, and wrote Floyd Roses off a long time ago, so this was kind of my "what am I missing?" buy. And you know what? I LOVE that sucker. I upgraded the pots and switch, stuck a Cool Rails in the neck, kept the ESP design middle strat pickup and came to really enjoy the FR. The neck plays amazingly well, it's actually a massive neck and not one of those weenie Ibanez shred-twig carves. I'm still not in love with traditional strats, but I definitely gained a new appreciation (and GAS) for S-types and found myself really enjoying having a 3rd pickup. It's not what I'd want for every guitar, but I'm incredibly surprised by how much I ended up digging something that I figured I'd honestly hate and flip. So, what about you all, ever have a piece of gear make you wonder what you've been missing?
