I'm in alternative scene. I wear my Gavroshe/Oliver Twist cap, white shirt and sand kufiya scarf. Leather jacket whenever necessary.
Never considered myself a hipster until I realized I only listen to bands no one ever heard about (but maybe that's just the curse of progressive metal).
Love for all human beings is like listening to any kind of music. You just don't care.
The 3-Mike-7 devotee.
Who use a jazzmaster in the detuned tattooed metalscene?
\m/ cool guitar but hardly an indie jazzmaster
Thank you, James. I'd forgotten about Minus the Bear. And I'm a big Pixies/Santiago fan.
I have always* played in original bands in the underground and stuff, and yes, I know my PRS is not the "popular" guitar to have in that scene. Whatever, I'm 36 years old, I have a professional type job, two kids, a mortgage, a bald spot and receding hairline and I just don't care any more what the young whipper snappers are playing these days. When I was 18 I bought a MIJ Jazzmaster and played them for the next 11 years, until I bought a PRS and realized that it's just better.
*One band was not originals, rather medleys of soundtracks to old Nintendo games.
The Bovine Fury <-- stream and download our album "Eleven by Twelve" for free.
05 Custom 22 with DGT pickups ~ 07 Mira with old birds ~ 08 SE Baritone Fralin/Suhr pickups ~ 03 SE Santana
From a tone and visual perspective, my Mira screams "indie."
Of course, it also screams "Highway to Hell."
Add one more to the list ;-)
I have a nice (brand new) Custom 22 Semi-Hollow on the way from John Mann's shop. It'll be here next Wednesday - same day that my new Axe-Fx 2 arrives. And yep, I can hear you now "No way you're playing 'indi' rock with that setup! WTF?" Hah! I've had some moral dilemmas over my choice of guitars and amps, but frankly I enjoy the feel and quality of PRS guitars, and I enjoy the flexibility and convenience of a more "modern" guitar rig, despite the fact that I'm not playing hard rock or metal. My main guitar has been a Gibson ES-339, but I just found the PRSs to be a world of difference in terms ergonomics, lay-out of the controls (I swap the PRS volume and the 3pos toggle switch locations though), and play-ability across the neck. Whenever I swap from my 339 to my PRS (currently an SE that will be replaced by the CU22-HB) I feel so much more relaxed because I'm not fighting neck-dive or the tendency of the guitar to "roll out" because of the 339's strap pin location on the neck. I think the semi-hollow and the 57/09 pickups are going to sound glorious.
