I have a new Fender American Standard HSS, Alder body, solid maple neck.
The stock Diamondback doesn't do it for me, so I want to replace it.
I like the sounds of the JB and the Custom based on YouTube & the SD sound clips, but would like some advice for my particular guitar.
I have a Mesa Express 5:50 2x12 (all tube class A & A/B) and use almost no effects.
I like Zeppelin, Clapton, Gilmour, etc. I'm specifically trying to get close to a Slash/Guns-n-Roses Appetite for Destruction Les Paul sound with my HB. (Love the LP sound, not the guitar)
