I am really finding a place for my Maple neck, baswood body, rg550 and its playing Nile Rogers and gilmore stuff. now at the moment my amp does not compliment the woods really but when played on its own you can really hear the brittle attacky glassy tones those wood produce. Naturally Nile and Dave play Legendary strats but the looks and feel are not for me BUT the sound is
The strat choices on pickup sites seem based on recommending specifically for strats and the woods they are most commonly made from.
Is a strat sound limited to single coils and strats? (sounds dumb i know)
I recorded the guitar in question without the amp etc so you guys can get an idea of the ins and outs of the sound (apologies for the mobile phone recording)
today I very nearly bought the new Vaporizer amp and a 50's vibe strat. holy shiz that thing delivered!
but can i do it with what i have?
I have Bare Knuckle Crawler in the neck of my newer rosewood board rg and i love it! however the one thing i don't like is the darkeness when i hit a low e chord, it is too dark for me. Wierdly compared to my older rg's with rosewood this one is a lot brighter and the one in the vid brighter still so i may do a swap to see. now i do feel i get better Les Paul sounds out of my crawler as it is and apart from the dark bit i love it where it is and i am tempted to get the bridge counter part and keep it in Eb
Any way here is my non BKP guitar that i would like classic full clean woody straty gilmorey nilerogersy
I do understand that the wood and floyd rose will hold this back from a vintage strat, but, hey ho worth a try
Thanks for the help guys!!!!
