Willie Nelson loves his Martin acoustic (he named it Trigger), he has worn a hole in the face. Are there any other really good acoustics?

Someone told me they prefer the Stratocaster over the Les Paul because they can make his Strat sound like a LP but he can't make his LP sound like a Strat. I know some of my friends who are guitar players who feel the need to buy the same gear as their favorite artist. Although I think it a little be easier if you want your own sound to find one you can be happy with close to 100% satisfaction. I don't know that is how I look at it.

Each might be perfect in its own right, but comparing them to another guitar one can see they have their limits. The Telecaster is a slab of wood, and doesn't have the contour body of a Stratocaster, so after playing a Strat a Telecaster seem uncomfortable and you can't get the 2/4 position like on a Strat. I don't like the Nashiville Telecaster with three p-ups if I wanted a guitar with three p-ups I would play a Strat :/ The most comfortable Fender model is the Jazzmaster, way more comfortable then a Strat, but that doesn't has the Fender American Standard Strat Tremolo System.
1. Even the most talented person could MAYBE get a similar les Paul sound out of a strat, but ill bet you that strat isnt a bone stock one. Theres a reason people get both guitars, because they simply sound totally different.

2. While you my not like the Nashville tele for being a strat copy, it really is its own thing. What other guitars gives you positions 2/4 and the tele bridge? Thats correct, none. For those of us who dont want a trem why have a strat hardtail when a tele bridge is far more useful.

I'd rather not have a trem bridge, honestly. Every time I've used a guitar with tremolo, it seems like the damn thing goes out of tune within a few hours. Even decent guitars like the Gretsch Electromatic Hollowbody with the Bigsby tailpiece had that issue.

Plus, it's not really an important part of how I play.

Even if you don't think you'd ever use it, you'd be surprised how much a little vibrato here and there with a Bigsby can help and widen your playing. It just adds that little bit of umph to your playing. I love the Bigsby on my Gretsch, and I only need to tune it up when I pick it up the first time each day.

Haha yea its pretty out there. I guess I actually deep down do want a trem. Im sure you hate them but I have been DYING to throw a bigsby on my thinline tele for ages. Im just to cheap to buy a real B5.

You are a vintage hater Personally my feeling on the matter is Leo got it right the first time (well maybe not the uncompensated saddles) and there little advancement in the building of guitars that I need. No while this rings true for you, I dont shred and divebomb EVH style so I dont need a Floyd Rose with locking tuners and a 15" board to fly on. In my honest opinion I think a player that sounds good on an RG for instance will sound just as good and have no problems playing on a fender neck, and with a little elbow grease using a strat trem.

Also the guitar I play most is an HSS with 12" radius, semi-thick neck, and a wilkinson trem. Strung with 11's.

I'm not exactly bound to the shred :P

Well you certainly proved me wrong. From your reaction to triple tele saddles I assumed you would HATE the instability of a Bigsby.

Is that a Sheraton 1/2? And where did you find that cool trem arm for it!
