My preference is to play the best guitar I own, fortunately at this point I don’t own anything that I don’t prefer, which means they get more even wear aside from my tele and my 330That's a good option also. I need to learn to play more gently. Maybe try the lighter strings as someone suggested.
Me too, most of my guitars were bought used.My preference is to play the best guitar I own, fortunately at this point I don’t own anything that I don’t prefer, which means they get more even wear aside from my tele and my 330
I also try to buy used so there are already flaws and dents, and i like players over case queens
i have also gone to 9 9.5s and concentrated on playing with a lighter hand, I used to have a death grip but I find if I play lighter I have much better dexterity and more speed
good luck in your quest and another guitar is never bad
I’m playing my 75th Anniversary Telecaster so much, I’m afraid of wearing it out. Looking for something a little less valuable to gig with. I have a few HH Tele’s so don’t need that.
What should I be looking for if I wanted the following? Used is OK, willing to refret if needed.
Doesn’t have to be Fender but I don’t want Squier nor do I want to pay Suhr prices.
- Stainless frets
- Pickups similar to the Custom Shop Twisted Teles in my 75th. I’d be Ok with noiseless ones if they had the raw power of the TTs
- Body binding, belly cut
- A neck that’s closer to a Strat’s C carve
- Rosewood board
- I’d be OK with a hum or P90 in the neck
There are so many makes and models out there that I’m lost. Chapman seems to have a wide range but I know nothing about them.
What IS the saying about Indians and arrows?.......never heard that one.I literally know about a dozen guitar players who leave the good stuff at home and play out of the box Squires at gigs.
Strangely enough, they all sound just as good with a Squire as they do with a $3000 custom shop model.
How does that saying go about Indians and arrows?
