Hey guys.. newb here. Currently facing a dilemma.. I have these 2 strats.. one is an all original 79, while the other one is a 60 custom shop sunburst. Both are awesome guitars but I just have to choose one. I have a real 62 strat (late 62, veneer board, sunburst) - but I need another one as a backup. So I'm choosing between those two I mentioned above... Here's the situation: 1. The 60CS is an awesome guitar. Easily a twin of my real 62. It has the best neck of the bunch (59 large neck - bought this from Wildwood). Sounds a bit hi-fi, but still, a great sounding strat. No qualms. Hands down could be the 2nd best sounding strat I've owned next to the 62. But would need a bit of a break-in.. It seems that the whole thing needs to get old first - but I believe it should be given that chance. If you're curious about how this 60CS sounds, it's in this video, being played by Greg Koch: 2. Now the 79... it's awesome in its own right. For some reason it has the same response and character as the 62. It has that mid-focused, bell-sounding, woody, vintage tone. Deep lows. But I hate the finish, the weight and the neck is a bit thicker than usual.. not the best neck, but still if we're dealing with sound, this one is right next to the 62. Plus it's old.. nothing can replace that vintage vibe.. and the yellowed/ambered large headstock. If I'm gonna rank them by sound (to my preference of tone of course): 1: 62 1.5 (lol!): 79 2: 60CS Here's the comparison video I made, please excuse the playing: So yeah. That's my dilemma. Which would you pick if your in my shoes?
