    At this moment my favorite is the one on the right. The other one has its moments, too, as do my other seven guitars.

    As for right now, that would be "Wendy" named after Wendy Melvoin.

    DSC01938.JPG She's made from an alder body which I bought in London and an SX furian neck of which I altered the headstock shape a little.

    DSC01939.JPG Today, I fitted an aluminium guard underneath her pickguard to see how much difference in tone that makes. The switch is a series-parallel which turns the bridge and middle pickups into a giant humbucker, it doubles the output.

    Wendy is by far the fattest sounding Strat I found.

    At this moment, this is my favorite guitar. I was playing it this morning and two hours went by before I sat it down. I was playing pre-Beatles rock, Johnny Rivers, Surf Music, Pop Staples, R&B... It's a MIM '60's Lacquer Jaguar. I have it strung up with .012 TI Flats that feel like '010's do on other guitars.

    Plug it into a clean amp and add tremolo or vibrato and spring reverb. Yum!

    58' Gretsch Chet Atkins, Been playing this the most lately. Amazingly stays in tune even with light tremolo use. Beautiful tone through any Fender tweed I've played it through.

    Thanks!

    It’s running a Fender Vintage Noiseless strat pickup in the neck, and a DiMarzio Cruiser in the bridge. I also upgraded that pots, switch, and jack. The guitar itself is totally amazing, but the stock electrics were all total crap.

    Just now I'm back to Ol' Simple, the guitar I showed in post #8, but I have it plugged in to my newish old Delta Blues amp, with a little drip to the toan, and I'm using my recent-favorite pick, this standard-bevel, light gauge Red Bear "Lil' Picker". It goes like a turbocharged tortoise, and looks nice, too.

    What a beauty... I especially like the fret board and frets and headstock.

    What's the story on that guitar? Is it really a Fender?

    It’s still this one, even though I’m contemplating some major modifications...

    Today it was Darlene. She's a hollow body darling. But her fingerboard sure is flat. IMG_20190725_130926.jpg

    It's really a Fender. They did a several versions of these set-neck carved-top mahogany body guitars back in the early 2000s. I also have an Esquire GT from that same mahogany set-neck series that is maroon with a white GT stripe. Fender also made a Celtic decorated one, and one with a scorpion inlay at the 12th fret. There may have been others as well.

    IIRC the Spalted Maple was the only two-pickup version they made. All the rest were humbucker Esquires with a Seymour Duncan Invader pickup. The Spalted Maple has a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates bridge and a Seymour Duncan '59 neck. The tone knob is a push-pull for coil split.
