    It’s an appropriate option for you. You probably play better than I do as well, but my all time fave tone is that of a TV double cut Junior through a blazing Marshall amp, with just reverb—the roar and howl of the P90 at the bridge. Now I have both the Marshall MHZ 40C and a nice TV Junior. I vary my picking from in front of the bridge to over the 12th fret. I leave the guitar volume dimed and vary the wretchedness of my picking.

    That works best for me.

    There's something quite poetic about the phrase "vary the wretchedness of my picking"

    :)

    That’s the best way to describe my picking style. About five years ago, I had to switch from flat to thumb pick. There was a pretty significant trade off—I lost the ability to play fast but I was able to really dig in with the thumbpick, much more wretchedly than with the flat pick, so when I backed off with that, the notes rang out clear even with Marshall amp gain as long as could I pick gently.

    Now I have a few dozen Herco “Flat/Thumb” picks, extra heavy.

  6. I don't have one. Would love to try one. It would have to be single cut and single p90 or I'm not interested.

    I have a 1999 Epi double cut that I traded an Affinity Strat for and it’s pretty awesome.
