THANK you so much for what you said about not keeping something because of peer pressure.
Same thing here, i have a slightly modded Prestige Rg1550, bought it in 04', and well, i was all bout shred-music,.. well everyone around me was,..
Ha,.. but when all the hype died down,.. graduated highschool,. moved away,.. I noticed that I didn't like it. Went to a dealer nearby, picked up (for the heck of it) a fender 60th Anni strrat,...
OH,.. MAN,, my hands just felt so darn comfortable,.. I fell in love,.. can't believe it took me this long to realize I'm a fender man,.. well, at least when it comes to necks.
I still shred, but I think I'll buy a Carvin DCXXX for those purposes. MY RG's neck proved to be too wide and thin for me (to the extreme, lol).
Its funny, back then I thought the thinner the better. Not for me at least.
Thanks again Godfather,.. you made me do it, You'll soon be seeing the RG in the classifieds.
Oh, and sorry for blabbing on.
I love to shred. I play in a cover band that dictates I play Floyd -trem guitars.
That is lots of fun, but hidden away in my studio is my '60 Custom Shop Strat in Shell Pink.
I've been playing almost 40 years straight and I've owned way too many guitars over the years- hundreds - and this pink Strat is head and shoulders above any other guitar I've owned...ever. Period. No contest.
I can't even explain to you how this guitar sounds,feels, plays.....
you know, they say if you keep going through lots and lots of ANYTHING, you will find one that stands out from the rest- well this is that guitar.
I love my UV77MC and my PRS hollowbodyII and my original 1968 Strat, but nothing touches this pink one - it's truly magical and non-musicians even comment on the damn thing. THEY notice it's different!
