    New Guitar Day. Just completed the power couple in Surf Green. Anyone else got a nice matching set?

    Notes: Strat is a Custom Shop 1960 (from Namm).
    Telecaster is a new Performer series - body is actually a satin finish, kind of matt look. It sounds killer by the way. I could never quite get on with Teles but this one just has great tones in every position but especially the bridge. It's just cutting through on my home recordings with a really classic rhythm sound, getting Jimmy page Zeppelin 1 vibe. I think perhaps the Yosemite pickups might be the killer ingredient. They're super-alive sounding making my Strats sound a bit dull in comparison. Tried the Stratocaster version in the store too and my impression was it had a similar tones.

    I've not yet had time to do a proper NGD post about the Ibanez S6570SK (right), but it matches up nicely with its Ibanez RG657MSK counterpart. These are a couple of *amazing* shredders!

    Awesome color! Looks like they should be sitting inside a 56 Belair or something... total cool retro look

    Only "matching pair" I have is a couple of Prestige Talmans.

    Sunburst, since that always held a special place in my heart (first Fender were a Reissue Series 60s in sunburst).

    Wound up having a matched pair of Teles with P90s neck pickups.
    Gave the one on the right to my son and kept the Aerodyne for myself.

    I wish I had money, I’d like to get one of those from you. 70’s is my favorite era of strats.

    Alright. You all have been talking about fraternal twins. Mine are identical. But like all identical twins, one will have a mole on their cheek, or something else, that the other one doesn’t have. Or, in this case, a telling d tuna. DC095A40-6E1B-4062-87A4-5FB43C04F4CD.jpeg
