Well it's my favorite time of year. The time of year that I can go buy a new guitar. :banana: But I'm not sure what I want. I've spent a lot of time over the past few weeks playing one of the guys in my band new Fender American standard Strat. I love the way it plays but I'm not sold on the sound. Now don't get me wrong I like the sound of a strat but it doesn't have the fullness and punch of say, my LP. Amazing cleans out of it, way better than the LP but when I hit the OD pedal it's just lacking. I really like it but I'm afraid in the long run it may not be right for me. Any suggestions of guitars I should check out?? I look at so many I forget about alot. I'm looking to spend around $1500. Oh and no pointy guitars.
