Apart from our strats, We all have that black sheep of our collection that we just hate to love.... but it plays and sounds incredible. It could be a toy or an 80’s hair band special. I saw Jack Pearson playing a $129 Squier Bullet on stage as his number one. It’s cheap and odd be we love em’. What’s yours? Mine is this $169 LTD (ESP) Viper 10. It’s a clearly SG inspired metal-ish, thing. It’s a cheapie that that I ordered as a back up for another LTD I had in this metal band gig I did years back. The Strat and Tele were not cutting it for this gig. I needed the look without the price tag. This was shipped to me so I didn’t have a chance to ply it first. It had junk for hardware but the sound and the resonance were superb and the playability was amazing. I sanded the thick paint off the back of the neck, I put 2 passive EMG humbucker with all EMG pots, an aftermarket Bigsby and locking tuners. I have guitars that have real PAF’s but these humbucker a have crystal clear clarity. It’s does some SRV better than my strat. I’m trying hard as hell to get my brain around “does it sounds good” rather than other cliche’s.
