Re: Anyone have a varied selection of guitars?
Charvel 550xl. Thru neck charvel, with schaller floyd. I have just put a Bareknuckle Miracle Man in the bridge, and that rocks, and the stacked hum in the neck needs replacing but is ok. Basically it is very close to a USA SL1. Great guitar, although not a fantastic clean sound.
Fender Musicmaster 1977. Nice junk shop kind of tone, ok clean sound.
Ibanez DT 350. wild guitar, great harmonics.
Jem 77FP. nuff said
Custom HM Strat. Alder, reverse headstock maple (fender, USA) Flourescent pink, PAf Pro bridge, and HS3 neck and middle. Schaller floyd. This guitar seriously rocks. Tone is great, good strat clean, and absolutely rocking distorted, even at very high gain. Actually great all round. It only loses out to the Jem on the neck.
Custom modded Zakk Wylde Les Paul. (Flourescent yellow)Sticker kit from Universal Jems. Otherwise a Maison (korean, but quite nice) set neck Les Paul, with ZW EMGs. Surpridingly good clean tones, and killer when distorted.
Cheap Fender acoustic.
I think that variety is really good if you can afford it. I have really tried to get as many different woods, and pickup configurations as I can. What I notice the most is the change in tone between different neck joints, that along with tonewood seems to define the character the most (ok and PUs as well). I think that probably the most versatile of all my axes is the Jem. As it has coil tapped HSH configuration you can get most useful sounds just by changing toggle positions, and the push-pull pot. When you add in the fantastic neck, it makes it a pretty unbeatable package.
