So, I've got a couple of Strats. They're very different creatures. I do love them both, but I was having doubts (I know, but don't hate me just yet!). I bought a CP50's Strat (shoreline gold) and loved it. Then sold a vintage Gibson and had some cash. I wanted a nitro, 3 tone Sunburst with a rosewood board and just at the same time Fender came out with the Roadworn. I bought a RW60's (it reminds me of my very first strat). One is pure 50's twangy, clean, goodness. 57/62 pickups sound luscious through my Deluxe reverb with some reverb and a bit of slapback! It is very Buddy Holly, very early 70's Clapton. One is pure 60's creamy rock goodness. These RW Tex-Mex pickups are awesome, very rock n roll! They get that Hendrixy, SRV, Bluesy gritty sound in spades. They compliment each other nicely. But in all honesty I don't play the CP50's as much any more. Then I put some heavier strings on it, to test and didn't really like them... so I played it less. Had a buddy come over a couple of weeks ago and he loved it. absolutely loved it. He couldn't stop raving about it. Here's the dirty part: I put some money down on a Les Paul a few months back. I'm one payment from bringing her home. See where this might be going? Yea, I started thinking about selling the Classic Player. I would pick it up and start thinking about it. I love the neck on this thing, but the big piano wires i had put on made it unpleasant to play. So, I'd put it back down. Finally the other day I got off my duff and put on a set of my regular strings (DR Pure Blues 10's) and fell right back in love with that Classic Player. Boy, that was a close one. the LP will just have to wait till next paycheck, that's all there is to it. I can't give up on my Classic player. She's a wonderful guitar! What the HECK was I thinking? So, now I've been plucking away on her for a couple of days with fresh strings and a big stupid grin on my face. She ain't goin' anywhere.
