I finally ended up buying a new guitar. I convinced myself to trade in my Fender 72 Telecaster Deluxe. Don't get me wrong, it's a great guitar but it turned out that it wasn't for me. I didn't get along with it as well as I hoped to. There were also some practical issues that prevented me from enjoying it to the max.

Anyway, I did a ton of research and brought my guitars and amp to a music store where they had most of the guitars I was interested in. Because it was a possibility to trade in my Tele (HH) I had my focus on humbucker equipped guitars to assist my PRS SE EG (SSS). I tried humbucker equipped guitars but didn't find one that I liked enough. I also tried P90 equipped guitars but again, I didn't find the guitar I was looking for. They were all great guitars but just not for me.

I also plugged in my PRS and I really liked it. I took some time to make up my mind and I concluded that I maybe wanted to have humbuckers too badly because I was getting rid of my Tele. I do really enjoy my PRS so I shifted my focus to single coils. I did check out some strats during my research and the Fender Classics Series 50's and 60's Stratocasters (lacquer) and Fender American Special Stratocaster were the strats I was most interested in. I decided to try the American Special and the 50's Classis first because I preferred the 50's neck over the 60's neck. After a long time the salesman came back to ask which one I preferred and I had to tell him that I was still playing on the American Special. I gave the 50's an honest chance and I liked the American Special more. It was a little dirtier, had more bite and pushed the amp a little more due to the Texas Special pick ups.

I played the American Special with a big smile and after I plugged in the 50's Classic one more time I knew it for sure, it had to be the American Special.

Enough talking, time for pictures:

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
