This morning...and possibly every friday morning...I've got a problem. Which guitar should I bring to Jazzband? I have a cherry red ES-335, and a worn Sunburst Maple Neck Strat. I like the feel of the ES-335, but the sound is a little too Rock n' roll-ish, and the strat has great looks, plays nice, but the pickups are a little weak for the style I play. I play SRV and Eric Clapton style Blues, with lots of other influences from the old blues. I have a 65W fender frontman amplifier with a 12" speaker. I have used the ES-335 for Concert Band until christmas, when I got my Strat.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
