If playing clean loud is an issue (over a drummer) then you need watts. A really good idea is an A,B,Y switcher to have a high wattage Fender for cleans and low watt marshall/vox/fargen/dr.Z for dirt.

I personally like a sweet spot where my neck pickup's volume rolled back is clean, but when hit hard just starts to break up. Middle position for rhythm, and full on bridge for lead. Pretty much exactly what Jimmy Page does live.

i like the simplicity of a strat's pickups, at least in the way that I use them. Neck for a bolder and rounder rhythm, bridge for bright and cut. Volume use for break on both.

I've owned several vintage Jr's and TV Jr's. And they are the sound of Rock'n Roll. The last TV Jr I had I sold to Keith Richards when he was in Sausalito recording his Expensive Winos album. He loved it and used it on the Voodoo Lounge Tour.

Then I suppose you will also love to hear that he invited me to join him back stage for the Stones Voodoo Lounge concert in Oakland. There were about 20 of us in a room converted into a dark Voodoo Lounge with candles everywhere and video moniters. There were two grandmotherly women from the Ritz Carlton serving dinner and wine before the concert, Keith and Ronnie shooting pool, Mick's kids playing video games, Darryl Jones (who had just joined as bass player) sitting next to me on a couch with his wife and newborn baby... No sex, drugs (except great French wine and I was one of the only ones drinking)...it seemed more like a nice suburban family get together.

i actually prefer the tone of teles, but I find the strat to be far more versatile.

youre probably correct.....and i hate to admit this, but ive always avoided the strat because since i was a kid i always saw shitty guitar players playing some knock off pawn shop guitar that looked like a strat.....just dont like em strictly on appearance. Now teles are another story. LOVE teles.

I feel like I could totally love the equire as the bridge pickup is all I use on my tele.

oh god hahahahahaha. I remember a guitar player in a band i played drums in had a neon green ibanez that was spray painted black, but the neon was showing through the scratches. for special songs, he'd take out his headless Steinberger. that dude loved to shred.

I remember during recording once, one of the engineers had just bought a new guitar and was bragging about how awesome it was...kept telling me i should use his instead of my SG. I can only imagine the look on my face when he brought out his BC Rich Warlock. Im sure those guitars have their place in metal, but wow that thing was fucking impossible to get a normal sound out of.
