They are cousins.
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.
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.
