He should know better.

Single coil on a Tele, Hummers on a Les Paul, Strat on the bonfire.... :)

Humbuckies on a Tele= fat twang :-)

See, I'm not sure about that. Certainly you'll get more kick, but does it really sound like a Tele? I have two Teles, one 1989 USA, and a '94 Mexican, both standard Tele set ups. Both sound like I think they should, and there's very little difference in the workmanship of the build. If it's good enough for Wilko...
I wouldn't dream of modifying them.
If I want omph, depth and sustain I use my Les Paul, or my '76 Ibanez Custom copy (which actually sounds better than my Gibson).

As far as my thinline goes , the sound is in the middle of a Tele and an LP. It's got the bottom end of an LP but the trebly top of a Tele which to me is the best of both . Roll the tone off and switch to the neck pickup and it's a jazz guitar . It's already my favourite guitar and I've only had it a few days.

I had it cranked up on Sunday and was giving it some Van Halen 'unchained' and it didn't half sound good at that too. :-)

Probably not - but my reasoning for buying that is I've always wanted a Tele - loved the look (and the sound), but needed it to be beefier for my style of music. I did cop to it being akin to blasphemy in my first post but that is still one sexy and great sounding guitar :p

Yeah, awesome thinline AOE. Looking forward to seeing what's next.

Id love a Les Paul junior foetus but they are pretty trendy ATM so pricey !

Plus I think my mrs is cottoning onto the fact that I have no intention of selling the ones I have.

Love me an LP Jr. This french bloke makes hollow steel Jr's that sound really good. A lot cheaper than a Trussart too.

I had an LPJ for a while in the '90's. It's called Junior for a reason. Very disappointing instrument. Like a Les Paul with its bollocks cut off, and no discernible personality of its own. Looked very nice. Played shit. Like trying to drive a Morris Minor up the side of Everest.
Save up for a Yamaha SG2000, and sell the wife. :)

If people are buying them because they are 'trendy', they don't deserve anything better.

Maybe more recent models are better?

I hear you Stella - I traded a lovely really early 80s squier Japanese Strat in for a LPJ in the mid 80s and immediately regretted it. I have played a vintage one since and it sounded and felt so much better than my relatively modern one. As you say though, they are a student les paul but an early sixties one goes for around 5,000 !

I like the yamaha SGs, always have done - seem to remember Steve Rothery having one back in the day but as is the way nowadays they are starting to pick up in value a bit like the early Tokais. You are looking at very high hundreds for a decent old one.

You're looking at more than that for a lefty one. :(

If someone is willing to be fleeced of five grand for a vintage Les Paul Junior, they are a f*cking idiot.

Just got round to listening to that , it sounds incredible !

foetus eagle 20-10-2014 06:11 PM

That's what I thought AOE. I see Macari's have a couple of them. I think they're about 7lbs too which sounds reasonable.

Another Oxted Eagle 21-10-2014 08:58 AM

My lad is tiring of his modern player Jag so I'm flogging that and have ordered him one of the new Danelectro 59M cheapies yesterday instead. He loves a bit of twang and garage rock so hes very excited. I'll post a photo when it arrives later in the week if I can prize it out of his hands !

New addition here today. So, my plan to upgrade my strat with a new neck and pickups turned into a whole new guitar.

I've been liking the looks of the new Suhr Classic Pro, (stainless steel frets, silent single coil system etc.) Then I spotted a nice Black Friday discount, (yes I am scum :)). And this happened...

Looks interesting. How does it feel and play?
