I've never really been drawn to LPs, in spite of owning a PRS SC245 (my #1), but that lemonburst is gorgeous. I could see myself with one of those.

Indeed. I also get great Jazz tones out of my Polytone Mini Brain. All bets are off, though, if I have to crank either of them up. I am better off dragging out my Mesa Stiletto Deuce in that case.

Just take something lightweight in an equally lightweight bag - something you won't mind getting knocked around a bit.

Weirdo.

dspellman's post should be a sticky.

The other myth is that nitro allows the wood to 'breathe'. No, no it doesn't. It is as effective a barrier to air and moisture as poly or any other car paint.

I would be inclined to try a Fender Jazzmaster Ultralight, if you can find one. Of the several small SS heads I have for jazz, this one will do post rock rather well too.
