The tele/strat is a piece I built last year...It consists of a wine red highway one body with a light mint green pick gaurd and an all parts (american) Fender Licensed maple strat neck. The neck was owned by an old friend for years, so its aging, but actually getting lighter in color on the board. It has a 70's Bartolini Hi A strat pick up in the neck position and an old dark/brown, almost tweed color HOT bridge pickup. The guitar is murder.

As for the Jazzmaster it is a Olympic White American reissue and looks like olympic white did back in the day, it just came into the music store I work at on Wednesday and I had to snag it up....I plan on relicing it on Tuesday.

Ahh, I see. I can imagine the Tele/Strat just kills. And I have to say I kinda love maple necks.

Definitely, its nice to see them age verses the dark rosewood. The tele has a versitile sweet tone. "Round" strat like sound with gritty dirty tele sound, and a light hint of twang.

Ahhh, that sounds delicious. How are you likin' the Bartolini by the way? I looked into those, but never really looked too hard.

Also, I bet it sounds ahh-mazing through the Twin Reverb.

It sounds great, when I got it I tried to look up information but really couldn't find much on the web...just information about Bartolini bass pick ups. The Twin definitely doesn't hurt.... :D

Do you at least still try mainstream cymbals to see if any of them have a sound you like?

some mainstream cymbals sound good. I play whatever sounds good. I have saluda, sabian, zildjian, paiste, wuhan, and istanbul. 13 cymbals covering 6 different brands and 11 lines of cymbals. best way to play imo.

That's the truth. Being a fanboy of any sort just limits yourself.

I'd love to try a few but nobody near me has any. Hopefully my banner will get selected and I can pick up a splash to try out.

Always good to experiment with new sounds.

I may get a Saluda china. I'm getting my bottom hat back today, which I had Jamie vent for me :)

I can't wait! I think now it will be perfect. I like dryer sounding cymbals, apparently.
