you can make a short scale Jaguar with humbuckers sound a lot like a Les Paul.
(that's about it though. )
I remember an interview with Page, circa early '80s in which he said he probably should have been a Fender player...
T, I enjoy his Tele work on LZ1, but, I think the Lester took him to another level.
I agree, completely.
I remember being completely shocked at the time he made the statement. I think he was largely referring to necks and fretboard radii. In the early '80s, I was already convinced that the Gibson Les Paul was the greatest invention, ever.
I also think that the interview was after he started playing again, post Bonzo a situation which, I am sure had it's own baggage. IIRC, he hadn't played in a long while and sounded like sh*t when he returned to it.
I think that he has shown over the long run what kind of guitar he's most at home with. The Firm was his next project and there was no shortage of Les Paul and 1275 material, there.
T, I blame DRUGS! His head was in quicksand. I saw The Firm, he played his Turdcaster Tele< I played Lp's at the Philly Show-LT Dave nailed it> He STUNK. I really wanted to enjoy Jimmy. I drank TONS of alcohol, still I saw through the 'hype."To my ears Jimmy sounds best with an LP through a Marshall. Page is a sloppy,treble machine. The Lp "forgives" this type of playing. The Tele is unforgiving and VERY "bright." What do know? I'm sitting here preaching on a guitar forum.................
Let me "revise."
The sloppy is a big part of what I like about Page's style.
T, me too. You get into R+R because you like drugs+drink+gals........REBELLION. It is teenage SEX music. I preach this to my band ,
"This is silly music. Let's DESTROY. We are paragons of disruption.True R+R is loose.......almost crap...WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I love my Les Paul, but I think I've come to the conclusion that I prefer Fenders overall.
Its sorta weird, as I often prefer the rocking humbucker tone from a Lester or SG, but I love the way Fenders feel, and I love the offsets they have.
what I like about Dave Mustaines leads, too.
His rhythms are perfect but when he busts out a lead it's all frenzy and reckless abandon.
no one gives a sh*t about perfect playing really, anyway. Except certain types of guitar players. No one who isn't a guitar player would notice that Dave Mustaine is sloppy,..they just see and hear a guy destroying a guitar while snarling into the pickups. ...and that's pretty Rock N Roll.
V, I slung only Lps for decades. My Strat "hugs" my body, I feel I "flow" better on it.I rarely play my Lps now. I pick up my Sg and Special when I want to "Gibby." I love my Lp's , I just need a break from them. I just recorded and I did not use one Lp. Next album I'm "dusting off" my 1974 Custom. I need some Ronson tones.
I hear ya man, Strats just play so smooth. I feel like they practically play themselves. There are still some pretty rocking tones to be had with them even if it's all single coil.
What I really want is a bad ass Mustang. Maybe something with a single coil and humbucker, or P90s. They look cool and I've enjoyed playing them when the chance arises. The Pawnshop Mustangs they made a few years back were super cool.
V, I just bought a JazzMaster Blacktop w/ P90 in neck and hum in bridge. REALLY mean guitar.
Do you know how expensive floor repairs can get?
Same here. I just recently bought a dual humbucker equipped Jazzmaster, talk about best of both worlds, I can't put it down
First off, in the OP, why was Satan wearing a pirate jacket? I focus on weird things sometimes.
I totally want that guitar Dave's got there. I'd do unspeakable things. Maybe the guy in the pirate jacket could get me one.
you should get one. For a custom Signature guitar it's actually a surprisingly fair price.
I had a student that had one. I swear it felt like it weighed just a couple of pounds. It was so light it really surprised me.
It was nice, well put together.
Fenders can be mean. One of the few metals bands still playing them.
