humbuckers keep tricking me, it's annoying. In the shop I play around a bit and think cool, then I get home and play for a bit longer and start losing interest. I looked for a while at some humbucker fender tele's that you could coil split, but decided no eventually. I've basically had to swear off them heheh
Hahaha me too (he says after playing on a Godin all day and staying on the humbuckers)
Hmmm, well had them at practice today. Played them on some songs where I usually use my Strat. In brief... more volume and gain. I could drop back the volume to clean up pretty nicely. The EM-1 has nice sustain now too. very clear sounding across the board. I like em I'll do a sound file when I have some time
I considered these in my Schecter but went for the AC2
I have now decided I don't like humbuckers (except for the AC2s on my Schecter and my SDs on my custom and Godin) so I may get some Tonerider P90s and put them on my old Vintage V100 for a laugh
Figured I'd go back to my old thread and not hijack HJs thread anymore My S-500 is at Pro Guitar Shop waiting for shipping... one more big ouchie payment for me and it'll be on its way..... booya!!! I'm gonna have one big demo day

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Hi Jack still have it, picked up a Yamaha FG720s for £100 off of Gumtree, guy said it had few knocks but that it was not to bad, went had a look, and it was in much better condition than i thought it was going to be, so pretty happy about that, surprised at the weight of it, pretty solid Little guitar, nice slim neck to. No don't work for them lol, just surprised me
Good guitars Yamahas for the dosh. I have a Yamaha F310 cheapest guitar in the shop - new strings, a tweak and a saddle shave and it is a great player
Never mind Squiers - I actually think the Tributes give the MIM Fenders a kicking and to be honest they are as good as a USA Standard Fender I reckon. I must admit the Tribute range is where I would steer anyone for a midrange guitar if they were looking at a tele / strat type - especially so a strat type cos the the single coils on the Legacy are more Fender than Leo!
The Tributes are fantastic build quality and as you say built like a house - totally solid - the USA guitars are the same but with better door handles, oak floors throughout, a hot tub and a heated pool ;D
I think the MFDs are superb pick ups and a great compromise between single coils and humbuckers. I wasn't so sure at first but using tone and volume on your guitar you can pretty much tele twang but also a whole lot more as well
The quality of the USA guitars is just that bit more special. The acoustic resonance of mine is just fantastic
The only problem with them is the woeful secondhand values - which would be good if you ever saw any second hand - they arec as rare as a nun in a bikini in the UK
