So let me see if I've got this right. You love the neck and frets on the AmProII, but the Mexican which you "hate" and in fact are changing the neck on is your #1 because of the sound of the pickups?I own two telecasters, one a mexican that's been heavily modified, and another lightly modified american professional 2. The american professional sounds good, I love the neck and the frets and it would've been my no.1 guitar had it not been for the mexican.
The mexican started out pretty meh, but over time has become my project guitar and ever since installing a set of Lollars, I just feel so guilty everytime I enjoy the sound coming out of it compared to the more expensive american pro 2. I'm not trying to bash the am-pro, and/or anyone owning one. After all, sound is subjective. I just feel so bad everytime I play the mexican and looking at the pro 2 as some sort of a backup guitar. The mexican neck actually feels too small for my hand (it's modern C profile) and I hate the neck so much I'm making a custom neck for it.
I'm sure other members here with way more guitars than I do have an experience with this sort of a situation...
That’s not necessarily true either. In the end It’s preference. I like good old vine zins over cabs. Same with guitars socks and underwareIf picking a good wine, the higher the cost, the better the wine.
Yeah, it has a bit of Robbin Ford visual thing going for it I think...I don't know why, but the finish scheme on that Tele hits me just right.
