Lifeson Les Paul....butter
here it is with some friends
I got a Parker Fly Classic Mahogany from 1996 and a SG junior from 1963 that play extremely good. My 74 Strat is in third place and my Harley Benton DC Jr in fourth.
My Reverend Gristle 90 is the best playing and sounding guitar I own.
I have around 30 guitars right now. These are the easy to play standouts.
1977 Ibanez 2651 set neck Les Paul
Strat partscaster I built many years ago
1982 Gibson Sonex
I've got two that are easy t play. An Ibanez Talman from 1995 with 11s and an Agile semi hollow 12 string with extra light strings
. Both have low action and can be barre chorded up the neck.
My Squier 60s CV thinline tele in mahogany, under 6 lbs, plays fantastic and sounds the same.
All of mine are easy to play.
REAL, early '80's original San Dimas, CA made Jackson (I bought 2, only around 2,400 made, ball-park figure from estimates by Wayne Charvel and Grover Jackson, before sell-out to 1] Hondo, 2] Fender) , easily and hands down. I see another once in the proverbial blue-moon, but now even more spendy. I'd say my B.C. Rich-es (non-trem Outlaw) would be next, and get most of the live work.
All my guitars are also set up really well and all are a joy to play. There is one, however, that seems to get out of my way when I'm playing it. What I mean by that is that this guitar allows me to focus on the music I'm playing instead of focusing on the guitar I'm using to make the music. I think it has to do with how my fat drummer fingers relate to the neck shape, profile and string spacing. It's a 2011 Epiphone Casino 50th Anniversary.
"Like" sunday morning.
They all mostly play pretty well. This one is the best.
Switching back and forth between my Rickenbacker 330 and CV’50 strat, easy appreciate both
All of them.
That's what setups are for.
Of course, i also like medium to heavy string gauges, and relatively high action...
... so what i consider 'easy to play' might be someone else's unmanageable nightmare, LOL.
These two are always my go to guitars, both play like butter.
Both 1983 USA Fender Bullets, the tele shaped Bullet was introduced in 81, but Fender continued making them alongside the 2nd version strat shaped Bullet introduced in 82, the necks are exactly the same as telecaster necks, they have a slim D profile, they suit smaller hands.
The Ivory S3 is modded with complete new pickguard assembly with hot noiseless strat pickups & it has graph tech saddles.
Both guitars are standard 25.5 scale, but have slightly smaller bodies, they were made in the Fullerton factory in 1983, by the same employees using the same components as all other Fenders from that era, contrary to popular belief that they were made with cheap components, these are great guitars.
I'd say my Indio 66 DLX Plus LP clone is the easiest compared to my Silvertones. I notice it when switching to a Silvertone from the Indio. It took a while for me to realize it but now that I've got some muscle memory built, it's a lot more obvious. It's also got one of the chunkiest necks I've seen, which I absolutely love! We're talking at least 0.950" at the first fret and almost 1.14 at the 12th, IIRC.
It seems I prefer Gibson scale length over Fender. That 3/4" actually makes a sizeable difference to me. Things I play easily on the Goldtop aren't so easy on the Strats. Guess I need to play them more and build better muscle memory for those.
TBH, I'm just glad I'm finally getting to the point where I can tell a difference in these sorts of things. Having just started playing in Jan 2020, it took a bit but it's all coming around finally.
You use 7s on those!? What's the sizes on the rest? 7-38? 36?
This guitar plays the easiest of any of my guitars!
