Identical attacks may sound similar or identical to a listener in front of an amp or video screen. So do a Martin and a Takamine. But there is a difference to the player. When I play the 335 I want to bring out the woody sweetness of tone a bit more; with a LP--or SG--I'm inclined to push the sustain a bit, and go for that intense smoothness. It's psychological and subjective, it has to do with my perception of the two guitars as much as their construction. But music is psychology. The guitars represent different things to me so I play them differently. The day it all becomes about engineering specs is the day to take me out back and shoot me.
