I'm Back

OK, true confession time. I've been playing my Strats a lot lately, and making my Gibsons jealous. After Thursday night's rehearsal, I felt like something was missing. So tonight I took one of my Les Pauls to the gig. It felt like coming home.

Are we attached Stan, think so but that is good, for sure. Don't gig out but rotate about on a weekly basis with a herd of eight..........................

Oh by the way Stan do you know much, good or indifferent on a Guild Starfire 5. Somehow I got the gas maybe on that one but nothing has sealed the deal one way or the other.......

Welcome back Stan. Nothing wrong in trying other guitars. Last few of gigs, I have been using a Strat and Trussart along with my LPs. They sound great plugged straight into amp.

Didn't know you left!!
As I've gotten older, I tend to take my lighter guitars to gigs. I tend to switch between my Melody Maker (just under 7lbs) or my Tele Thinline (just over 6lbs), but I'll admit that the Tele is used for most of the gigs. At home I play them all...Strat, Teles, MM and ES137.

Yeah, variety is the spice of life! I go 'round and 'round this circle all the time. It is nice to have a selection of great guitars to choose from, I am quite fortunate.

And Billy, those Guilds are quite nice guitars too, if it's a situation where you can play it I would certainly give it a shot.
