    Thanks! Dang featherweight unknown wood, cheap chinese pick up geetar sounds alright imo...
    Been a while since I toned it down gain wise... I do like my shredders but mellow is cool too.

    The more gain you play with...the less the guitar matters. Even when I get gain-y...it's still pretty clean. I like to still be able to hear the guitars qualities...and to do that you have to keep things clean. This is my wiggle stick Tele. The body is a MIC SX. The neck is Chinese too. The pickup I rewound and used A3 polepieces. It was ceramic with slugs.

    Thank you! validates what I hear- What I think is a pretty decent tone (and not a lot of money either! $120 DIY guitar (though a lot of love went into it into a Jet City amp. The Heritage G12-65 is the most upscale piece in the chain.) As for the playing -thanks, I try!

    The guitar always matters-just in a different way.:) Now this is GAIN(and a whole lot of other stuff), lol!

    Not in my experience. The more gain and modulation, the less the guitar or pickup matters in the end result. How it feels...tactile stuff...that matters. What comes out of the speaker in the signal treated by all of what follows it.

    That latest track of your proves it. That could be anything. But your lown gain vid above...that's a Strat. ;)

    My tastes are all over the place musically. I have tracks that are way farther out than that last one and clean blues tracks too. You know, sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you dont. :)

    Anyways-

    I wanted an opinion on the sound of the bridge PU of this strat and you asked for cleaner. I obliged since it made sense, so sure I agree that the type of pick up may not matter as much with high gain, fx and such. The guitar I use to play that, to me does matter and its not one of my strats its one that feels more comfortable to me for that style. The guitar also mattered in a broader sense that it was means, the tool in hand- literally, lol. That's what I meant when I said the guitar matters -just in a different ways. The song wasn't about guitars per se....when it comes to creating there are many paths. :sneaky:
