Anyone ever have one guitar that just plays perfectly, great setup, comfortable, etc. but doesn't suond that great, and another guitar that SOUNDS awesome, but maybe won't stay in tune, or the nut is too tall, or can't seem to intonate properly? Two guitars I love to play: strat-style HH and an Epiphone ES-339. The strat (this particular one) is one of the most comfortable guitar I've ever played, but not the best sounding guitar really. I guess it's mostly the pickups. The 339 OTOH sounds amazing, for funk, blues, rock, clean, dirty, everything, but the nut is too high, I can't ever get it completely in tune all the way up the neck, crackly switch, etc. Option 1: try out the Epiphone pickups in the strat, but even then it probably won't sound the same as the 339 due to the scale difference, and different bridge. Option 2: Bring the 339 in for a setup, and ask them to work on the nut. Do I make the "awesome-sounding" guitar play better, or make the "awesome-playing" guitar sound better? Or maybe both are possible?
