I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I guess I have the first two! But what about playing-wise.. Is it solos only?? Cause it would be sucky waiting in a song just to solo for 30 secs and be done!

This is an absolute must for all would-be lead players.

The rhytim guitar player does most of the chords and stuff, say the "background music". The lead player does the lead part, so the part of the music that stucks in your head, don't know how to say it another way xD

Plays the melody lines if the guitar has any, plays the solos, and plays rhythm when the other two are not being done.

Depending on the type of music you listen to he can also do fills and rhythm parts.

naw well i mean obviously the lead player usually plays the solo, but for the rest of the time he/she'd either be playing other parts to complement the rhythm guitarist, other wee lead fills, etc. etc. If there's only one player in the band then you'd be playing everything, lead and rhythm.

yeah i mean you're not gonna get to loll at the side of the stage with a beer in your hand then stagger forward for the 30 second solo. lol.
