    I've been looking for something to put that pickup in for a while, and I have just about decided on the CV. I'm 95% on the neck and 5% in the middle, so I probably would not change the bridge pickup.
    Please feel free to encourage my inclinations or slap me around.
    Thanks

    Do it... then tell us about it. It's an option I have further on down the road so I'm interested in your thoughts. (about the pickup - your other thoughts are your own!! :D)

    Middle? *shudder

    Please don't add a pickup ring. That poor guitar doesn't deserve this.

    I want a HB guitar. I nearly bought an excellent Les Paul the other day, but something said no, I think it is the scale length from playing Fenders. I don't have the Tele yet, I could as easily buy the same version of Strat and use the 57 there. So far I am leaning to the Tele. It won't be back in stock locally for about 10 days. I can argue with myself until then.

    FYI: ""In an article in Guitar Player magazine (July 2007) Randall was asked what rig he used to record the solo on "Reelin' in the Years". He states, "That was my '63 Fender Stratocaster with a PAF humbucker in the neck position, straight into an Ampeg SVT bass amp. The SVT wouldn't have been my first choice for an amp--or even my fifth choice--but it worked a storm on that recording!""

    25.5 scale is good for harmonics and whammy bar HB play while the shorter scales are better for bends and thicker tone. Nothing wrong with either. There are a few 25.5 scale Gibby types out there.

    There are a lot of players - not least of all Eric Clapton - who spent a lot of time trying to find Strat playability and Les Paul round-sound, in one guitar. Clapton's solution was the mid-boost thing.
