So, I plunked down a little cash on an '06 Classic Player's 50's Stratocaster in Shoreline Gold yesterday. After giving over my hard earned cash, I sat and played it for about an hour or so. I played through the Boss Display pedal tower thingie. First I played it through the 59 Bassman pedal and that thing just sang to me. Beautiful a bit broken up, beautiful clean. Tone for days! Then, I tried the 65 Reverb pedal. Didn't really care for that pedal much, but I didn't spend much time with it either. I probably could have tweaked something eventually, but I was impatient and really happy with the bassman tone. The g string pulled slightly out of tune (after me playing it for a bit), so switched sides of the tower to the array of pedals side. I used the tuner pedal and tuned her up (she was a tad flat all over) and turned on the reverb pedal. WOW! SAH-WEEEET. Turned on the delay pedal and had a beautiful surfy/rockabilly sound. Then played with a blues driver some and kept going back to that super clean reverby sound. Man I love this dang guitar!!!! They had a little Marshal J-something-or-other head that my buddy who works there wanted me to plug into.... it sounded so full and rich through those tubes! Very clean amp. We were afraid to turn it up really loud... to find the grit, but no matter where he cranked the knobs it sounded good! Those 57/62 pickups are a joy to behold. All of the switch positions sound good to me. The neck/bridge position is an interesting one that I look forward to exploring more! The neck feels so nice... I'm really looking forward to bringing it home and plugging it into my Mesa and giving it a good going over! I can't wait to put new strings on her and get the action lowered a hair... make sure it's intonated correctly, etc. And then play the crap out of this guitar! Guess I'll have to change my avatar soon!
