Do Your Guitars Inspire Different Ideas (If You Have More Than One)?
I was playing my SC58 tonight. It's a wonderful guitar, equipped with an ebony fingerboard and 53/10 pickups. It has a delicious, warm, buttery sound that reaches deep into my roots, and playing it is instant inspiration. While mine feels pretty heavy, it's also very resonant, and has tons and tons of sustain. I barely have to pick a note, and well...ok...you know the drill with these, but the 53/10s really warm it up, and the ebony board gives it a lot of articulation. It's a great sound!
If I took the stage with a solid blues band that occasionally had a jazzy vibe, this is the guitar I'd want to express that side of myself with.
I play differently with this one.
So...do you play the same stuff with every guitar, or do you find they take you in different directions?
