  1. Well, I actually like them low. I have a tenancy to bend the strings too much when playing if they're too high. I don't like that. I think if I play enough to wear them down, I'll pay for a new fret job.
  2. I see on the new ones they use medium jumbo. I wonder if that has always been the case.
  3. I think I've decided I'm looking to get an SG. Well, I think. It's at the top of my list right now. But I like my frets low. I have only played a few so far, and don't think I had an issue with the frets on them, but I played mostly epiphones. I played one faded briefly, that was brand new at Guitar Center and thought it was awful. It probably needed a good set up and cleaning, but it felt about as smooth as velcro. Anyways.... Is there a particular model I should be looking for that might have lower profile frets than others? I really am looking for one with P90's, so I guess the
  4. Oh, I have a photobucket account! I'll see if I can download them to there. I have been using snapfish lately. I did come up with this in my mind (but I'll post the LP pictures later): I think at this point I've narrowed down my search in my mind. After listening to 7k youtube videos of people playing, and what I've played so far, my list is narrowed down to: SG with P90's (or buckers) or a Tele with humbuckers. And I'm definitely leaning more towards the SG, just because I've never had one, and I've like the ones I played. It pretty much fits all of my requirements, besides the f
  5. Just figured that out. Sorry! What's the difference between the sherton and the dot? Besides the color of the hardware?
  6. This may be a stupid question, but is the heavier one really a full hollow body? Are you sure it's not a dot? Doesn't a vibrato need some wood to screw into if it was added after the fact? I could be all wet, but I thought I'd throw my thoughts out there. I had a line on a chinese made Dot, and I really liked the way it played, but being big AND heavy, sort of put me off. I think I could stomach big, without heavy. Meaning a full hollow. The guy had a Korean made LP, and I think it was lighter than the dot. Either that, or it just FELT that way, because it was smaller.
  7. Very nice! How do you like the vintage tuners? I have a line on an LP that has those tuners and the grovers seem more robust. How does these vintage ones hold up and work? Do your guitars stay in tune well?
  8. Simply beautiful! Great "going to sunday meeeting" guitar. "Sunday, hallelujah is not so far, not so far away!!"
  9. Good points. It still would be a pretty decent set up. If I pay the guy $325, $100 for the pickups and maybe 50 for the labor? That's 475 for a guitar I might really like. Or maybe not. Hehehehe. The point is taken. I'm trying to get out this weekend to play some guitars, but I'm fighting a bug and taking it easy at home. So... time will tell. My money is burning a hole in my pocket though. I've been saving for a while, plus I just sold a pistol to help fund it and I'm excited to have enough for a half way decent guitar. But then there is always an amp, recording software
  10. Thanks guys. AudioMitch, when you say you have this one, are you talking about the '72 RI with or the Blacktop? I'm assuming the 72 RI because the blacktops are just out. bynapkinart, who is that? So, do you guys think I'm crazy wondering what a LP sounds like with single coils? Aren't p90's technically a single coil design? I think it could give it a less strong sound that I don't find completely desirable. I wonder if the epi I'm looking at is able to swap p90's. I was researching that model last night "limited edition" and they were saying they were actually mini humbuckers.
  11. Yeah, I have one up as my screen saver. I went and played one the other day and I wasn't in love. It was OK, but I actually liked the way the Standard tele felt better, that I played at that place. It may have just been that "certain" one. Plus, now they're making this one called the "blacktop" series. It comes with two regular ole humbuckers that look like a gibson bucker, the plate is switched around and it's about 250 cheaper than the one you just showed me. Plus, I like really low profile frets, and the medium jumbo frets on the one you showed me, and many other Fenders, are not maki
  12. Easier said than done, in my brain for some reason. I like aspects of each of them. But my dilemma has always been, a bone stock tele sounds too twangy to me, and a bone stock LP sounds to "strong" to me. But I like the way either one plays. I'm not sure which I like better, playability wise. They both have their virtues. Which is why I keep trying to look for an "inbetween" guitar that sort of has the best of both worlds. I think the SG is about the only one that comes close to that category. But I think the Gretsch Pro Jet might fit that too. So.... Do I tele, LP, or something inbe
  13. What would you guys think of this one? It's a Korean made LP, a guy in my subdivision wants $325 for it. I played it briefly and it seems like a good deal. It's some kind of "Special Edition" (correction: Limited Edition), which probably means nothing. I'm just not sure I want to go with an LP. The price is good, but it's also an epiphone and I'm not sure what I think about that. I don't know if buying a brand new 425 mexican tele would be much better. Some say the mexi's are usually higher quality than the asian. I suppose it's different for each guitar. I can't remember if I posted thes
