Trying to warm up to the standard vs VM studio


Recommended Posts

Having played a 335 for many years I decided to buy a LP vintage mahogony 2004 vintage. Love the tone, the warmth and the texture of the sound it produces. Now I'm Looking at a used standard with a AAA top and heritage sunburst finish. Georgeous guitar but can't get past the brightness in the sound. It sounds shrill next to the VM studio. I know both have the burstbucker pickups with mahogony vs maple top but are they all so bright. Don't get me wrong....the standard is awsome but I am a tone freek and the VM has the tone I like. Would like to own the standard but not sure I would be happy with the sound. +:-@
