Topic: Incipient GAS
I have been looking at guitars lately. After I got my Behringer my wife told me no more but...You know. Anyhoo, I have not been a fan of Fender guitars since I started playing. I liked the humbuckers and Fender is, obviously, more of a single-coil guitar maker. That is until I started getting better.
I have now found that having a single-coil guitar would sound better when I play songs from such groups as Pink Floyd and I have also come to appreciate the Strat "sound" that the single coil can make along with the crunch that can be attained through those same single coil PU's.
Today I went to Best Buy with my wife and headed directly to the instrument dept. I picked up a Tele and proceeded to play some songs with it. OH MY GAWD! That tele was sooooo easy to play! I was making the same chord changes I usually do yet it was like butter on that Tele! It seemed that even the chord changes I have issues with (not so smooth) were easy.
Seems I am now a Fender fan! I still want a guitar with humbuckers on it but now I want the Fender-type too!
