I'm sitting around the house today being too sick to go into work but not sick enough to be unable to play (quietly :-) guitar, and I realize I have pulled the trusty Strat and Tele out for a stretch in a couple months. So I drag them out from under the bed and plug in the Strat and start to play...
...and it just doesn't feel right
*I mean, sure it's strung with .010s (vs. .009s on my Ibanez guitars), and it sounds great
! and it looks as good as it always has (CAR... yum!
), but it doesn't play smoothly enough, it's too much work, the neck's too chunky and...
it's not a Jem
I try the Tele and it's the same thing... only twangier
Now I'm not going to run out and sell these guitars - I'm far too fond of them for that, and I own other guitars that I love despite some playability issues (my Ovation Breadwinner, for example), but I was somewhat taken back by the huge
difference in the playability stakes between my Jems, JPM, Universe & USRG10 and these old faves... Anyone else had similar revelations?
