I have learned a lot about myself over the last few weeks. About a year ago I declared myself a Tele guy exclusively. And a baseball bat neck guy exclusively. If I was going to play electric, it was going to be a T style with a huge, round neck. Period. And I still love my two T's with baseball bat necks. But over the last few months I've gone crazy, or on a journey of discovery. I now own a Jazzmaster, Stratocaster, and Les Paul Jr. I have learned that I don't like arch tops on guitars. Not sure why but they don't feel right after extensive playing. Or "medium jumbo" or "tall" frets. Most surprising, I learned that I flat out LOVE a 7.25 radius and vintage frets. My Jazzmaster and Strat both have them. Comfortable. Easy to play. Notes ring. I can do a whole or 1.5 step bend just fine and the action doesn't have to be high to accomplish that. I've also learned that to me, the American Vintage series are flat out great guitars. The fit, finish, materials and workmanship are really, really good. Even better, lots of folks must not like the vintage radius + vintage fret combo. I feel bad for them but I've been able to pick up mint versions for peanuts, which also appeals to me. I'll post pics shortly. Actually, you can see the Jazzmaster headstock in my Avatar. Oh, and I've also learned I love painted, matching headstocks.
