    NJ,

    For what it is worth, I have a $200 garage sale partscaster that is surprisingly nice. It has Tex Mex pups in neck and middle and a SD hot rails in the neck which I seldom use. The SD is a small bucker, but I always play in the neck or middle pup, or both and they are single coils, and no buzz regardless of gain level. Just a suggestion.

    just lately I've been digging my Telecaster Custom, which is my cheapest guitar. I wouldn't say I'm done with my Gibson collecting by a longshot, though. I still need a '76 Goldtop, hard to find unrouted and at a reasonable price. Relatively soon, I'm going to be getting a Classic Series '70 Strat, if I can find that cheaper than my Tele, that might become by fave, who knows.

    love my cheapies... in fact, I loved my cheapies more than my gibson... by FAR

    but then I bought a PRS CE, and it changed my mind about guitars that cost more than $1000... guitars like this one ARE worth EVERY penny.


    are the $3000 worth even more than the CEs? no idea. but I'd be willing to try now...

    My most played guitars probably go:

    09 SG Faded (never planned on getting an SG, happened upon this thing and it was incredible)
    05 Ibanez GRG170DX (first electric)
    08 LP Studio

    Trad is too new to be considered.

    My MIM Strat, that I loaded with Texas Specials, is, well, special...
