    Nice! Bueautifully played.

    Still sounds like you. It's interesting, I can tell from your style that this isn't too far removed (in time) from your American Vampire in Essex, that you posted in the That was then this is now thread.

    I use the bridge pickup 99% of the time... I'd be happy with a one pup guitar

    Several decades ago my brother had a guitar with a single pickup mounted on rails so you could slide it up and down between the bridge, neck and anywhere between.
    I have no idea who made it and I've never seen one since. Apparently not a big seller.

    A one pickup guitar forces you to get your tonal variation from the right hand.

    I've currently got two - a 1960 Musicmaster (recently set up by Ron Kirn) and a Reverend Sensei Jr.

    I also had a Melody Maker SG (with one HB in the bridge), but I gave that one away to my cousin's wife. I have never felt undergunned with one pickup, but I do also like my two- and three- pickup guitars. The Jrs. are just another flavor.

    I think so, it's been such a long time ago and my mind is like a steel trap - rusty and illegal in 48 states!
    Funny you should mention a plexiglass strat, he had one of those, too.
