Shame on you!!

On the matter of strats and teles, I find the tele much nastier (i.e., better). It seems to cut through on any pickup setting, but somehow is more agreeable to the ear than the strat. As a long time player of Les Pauls, I find I can go from the Gibson to the Tele with no problems or transition, but when I change to my strat, I have to re calibrate my ears.

Weird.

Agreed 100%. Bridge pickup on a hardtail is about as close as a Strat will ever get to a Tele.

Yeah, maybe, but i can't help loving the neck + medium pickups sweet sound: clear smooth and dynamic! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

My two strats are customized(Van Zandt pickups)...And i'm really happy with their sound, though i always find it like Christmas when i change for the Les Paul, go figure.

Anyway, the Strat is lighter, more comfortable (the best), has much more different sounds, more like a magic tool to me (you'll need more accessories/effects). In a band with more than 4 musicians i find the Strat über (and whammy can add some cool effects too, you can play your smart ***) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif .

But if you play with less than that and at lower decibels, i find that the Les Paul sings far better with a rich warm tone, like a guitar with a strong character that sings better with time (hey like wine http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ), i bet it's the same with Telecasters.

What you said about the Strat vs another guitar is true, I always feel schizophrenic when i try to figure which one's my favorite http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif . I think if i was sent on a desert island, i would chose Gibson Les Paul with my Fender Concert Tube amp...But keep in mind that my experience with other types are really limited (few hours) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif ...

The Tele, like the Les Paul have high sound output (i heard so and think it's true)when the Strat has low a sound output: maybe this is the reason of recalibrating http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif My tip is, with strats, always play with tube amp over 5.

All the guitars we mentionned are superb guitars and all are worth it. If you like guitars, you want them all! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

I hear ya about the tonal range of the Strat. It's an amazing instrument once you get into it.

I have Texas Specials in my strat, which makes it nice for that really skanky SRV kind of noise. However, I find that for the best tone through my amps, I have to run that guitar with the volume backed off a little, even for solos. Somehow, it just feels compressed and loses sensitivity at 10. At 9.5 it's beautiful. What's really strange about it is that it behaves like that regardless of amp and pedals. It's almost like the pickups are too hot. It's strange to me anyway, because I've always used the volume control a lot on my guitars, to control the overdrive and tone. It's odd to have an instrument that doesn't like being at 10. Aaaarrrgghhh, Spinal Tap moment coming on...

But for pure weird fun, try a Danelectro DC59 if you get the chance. The neck pickup sound just rulz for blues and slide. Unreal. But strange. In a good way. That guitar, tube screamer and a nice combo amp: amazing.

cheers,
Ratsack

Great site. Might have to dig my Telecaster out of the closet and wipe the 5 years of dust off of it. Probably needs new strings too.

Makes me think back to the days when OLGA was big and active. I spent hours and hours, and killed many a tree printing up tabs from there.

Thanks for the link BC!

@Dirty Mac http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif Your guitar and bass are amazing, don't sell, you'll miss them as soon as you will sell them.
My humble advice: keep saving money to add a Fender to your collection! You'll always find a Strat or a Tele, but your guitars seem original, not sure that you will be able to find them again...

77 Fender Jazz.. I still have the original hardware.. I bought it for $479.99 in 77 when I got out of the Navy.(Still have the receipt.) I can sell it for $1000+ today. I am thinking about it because I don't play it much anymore, but it has huge sentimental value to me. I don't like to play it as much though because it is so heavy.. and I like the 5 strings better. My daughter who is 17 now and graduating from High School put that little sunshine sticker on there when she was 4 years old.. I left it.
http://star.walagata.com/w/bearcat/Tacoma4.jpg
A really really really sweet sound.. deep warm and rich... this Tacoma acoustic is the one with the LR Baggs pickups... I am also thinking of selling it though as I really don't need to just have it sitting around and as I said, I prefer the 5 strings now...
http://star.walagata.com/w/bearcat/Ibanez5.jpg
This Ibanez is the best bang for the buck bass I ever had... Nice sound.. good action, and it is really comfortable for me to play. My main axe now.... I remember when Ibanez=cheap guitars.. not necessarily so any more.. this thing is really nice I must admit. That strap on there is my first guitar strap and it is 30 years old.. made of that thick strong leather.. not like some of the thinner, flimsier ones that look the same today..
http://star.walagata.com/w/bearcat/Kelly5.jpg
My most recent addition.. this Michael Kelly (http://www.michaelkellyguitars.com/) 5 string fretless doesn't sound as good as the Tacoma.. but with an amp and a little EQ it does the job. I wanted a fretless bass for a long long time.. and the fact that it is a 5 string is great... the on sale price of $300 from a retail of $795 at the time was the deciding factor though.. It has Fishman pickups and electronics.

Bearcat, as a long time Fender Jazz freak, that '77 Jazz is drool-worthy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif Maple board jazzes are awesome. I used to have a recent US-made one with an ash body that had the see-thru white blonde, the tone was incredible.

I used to own a couple of Ibanez basses, a SR800 and a EDC700, both were decent, though the EDC700 had the best tone out of the two, much more growl with both pickups.

I just have my two well used Mexican Jazz basses now. They sound great, thanks to pickup replacements, and I just converted one to a fretless.
