choices choices choices ...
I seriously change my mind every 1 or 2 days. My ideal choice would be to have both of them, but I only have enough money for one so your opinions and expierences would be greatly appreciated.
The first option is a Eric Clapton Sig Stratocaster (2001 model) with STK-S4 pluses in all three positions (in black of course). I really like the versitility of this instrument (TBX circut and 25 db midboost).
Second choice is a '52 Hot Rod Telecaster in butterscotch blonde. I would swap out the bridge pickup with a Jerry Donahue and the neck pickup with the Seth Lover instead of the mini-humbucker.
Styles I play are jazz, alternative/indie (The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, and Tokyo Police Club), classic rock/blues (Clapton, hence the guitar choice, David Gilmour, The Who, and Led Zeppelin). I need the guitar to be able to play all of the aforementioned styles. I think both of these are capable of doing that.
My amp is a Reeves (Hiwatt clone) Custom 12 bt-dub.
