    USA Tele’s and Strat’s vs made in other countries

    Here in Europe we are blessed with the existence of excellent electric guitars manufacturers like Vigier, Marceau, Maybach, Duesenberg... Our choice is therefore rather varied between buying local, American or Asian! ;) :)

    Part time Ninja, possibly a superhero.

    1) Superheroes don't play guitar (Steve Vai is an exception, perhaps) 2) Rocking chairs are the hereditary enemies of guitars

    Band-In-A-Box - ?

    I use it a lot to study jazz improvisation. The band is never tired to start again and again the same part of a tune! And it's so easy to change the key or the speed of the song you're working on...

    Fatten up my tone

    Use a thicker pick (or play with the flesh of your fingertips, not your nails)...

    I Hate My Tone!!!!

    Change your way of playing (fingerstyle vs pick, gently, softly, etc.). Find a tone you like with a simple setting (guitar+amp). I believe you can find nice tones on any piece of gear, just depends on how you play...
