I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a crimson burst, that’s subtle and terrific.
The little Epiphone SG I acquired over a year ago, is at the least equal to my other Stratocaster's, & at about 1/10 the price...Just pick-it-up & play away, all day !
I initially bought it to "test the waters" with a Gibson styled / made guitar, & to use as a test-mule for maybe some pick-up swaps down-the-road, as I wasn't expecting much from the guitar. I was very, very wrong...
I've attached a picture of my 2 x 1970's with the oly-white's replacement neck. ( The little SG was still cheaper than the replacement neck too )...
All the guitars are stock standard production models.
All my current guitars are stock - I never saw the point to endless mods.... the only mods I’ve ever done are to replace the gold hardware on my 335 with nickel - really not a fan of the bling... sound wise though I’ve always got what I wanted out of whatever guitars I have...
Thanks! This guitar sounds beautiful even unplugged. The photos just don't do the grain justice...
Beautiful! Nice grain!
And it only weighs 6 lbs 13 oz.
Elite...its the neck....the pickups.... that do it for me. Changed nothing on it. other than the strings and slight neck adjustment.
Those do seem awesome, and I love everything you do with yours, man.
I’m going to go with the Fender Nashville Deluxe Telecaster. It’s a great guitar. 5 different pickup combinations like a strat, but the bridge pickup is 100% telecaster. Also it gets bonus points for coming in fiesta red and sonic blue and costing under $850 new.
Since none of my Strats are stock, it’s a toss up between these two. My 2016 EVH Wolfgang Standard and 2007 Fender ‘72 Tele Deluxe reissue. The Wolfgang with the Floyd Rose and compound radius neck is effortless to play. The Tele has its fair share of bumps and bruises it just has a certain vibe that I can’t quite describe.
My 2005 FSR guitar that I bought new. It’s basically a combo of a 2005 AV ‘62 and a 2005 Am Deluxe.
Truthfully though, almost any stock American Strat from any era as long as the QC was good would fit the bill for me.
Mine is my AV 56. Although it seems one of the knobs is wrong, but that happened before I bought it, so I consider it untampered with
I like the matching headstock on this one a lot. What color is this, a metallic blue ice? It's wonderful!
Ice Blue Metallic. The other version was Olympic White without the matching headstock.
Recent American Vintages do bring quarter-sawn necks, and specs wise they are a step above from older vintages.
Maybe starting this thread was a big mistake. It got me thinking about how much I miss my YJM strat. I spent the week fairly obsessed with this idea, so I pulled the trigger on a new one! Same model as in the pics I posted originally, should arrive next week, can't wait!
The BEST production model IMO! \m/
Please forgive my ignorance, I’m curious what model this is? Looks great! Is that a cream PG on the SB, or something else that’s aged very nicely?
Probably a red American standard tele, it comes to my mind first. Obviously any les Paul is great, but I want that tele man. Why am I even here)
It's either my ES-335...
or my EBMM Axis Super Sport semi-hollow:
Totally would have chosen my Fender Classic 70's Strat, but it's currently rocking a set of Rose Robusta pickups so it doesn't qualify as "production" anymore...
