    I love SG and LP guitars! They are my dream guitars since my childhood. Especially a good SG b'cos of Iommi. I bought a Japanese Greco LP and played for a long time. At the beginning of my back issues, I found a 2nd hand 2015 Epiphone Iommi SG. BAM! Hit the bull in the eye! Solid as rock, stable, stays in tune for a long time, no fizziness, no fuzziness. Sold my beloved but heavy Greco.

    Tagima has the T-635 you can find for 199 bucks right now that beats the brakes off of the affinity. They have a full size alder body, 2 point trem, bone nut, split post vintage style tuners, rosewood or maple fretboard, satin neck, and sound fantastic...with no squier logo.

    Pacifica all the way, great build quality and will last forever, its built like a tank! BUT if you go with a Pacifica get the 112V much better Alnico V pickups than the cheap ceramics on the 112J or the cheap 012. The 311H is even better with quality parts and not very expensive

    Really need to know what windings and magnets they both use before you can compare like for like between pricey brands and cheapo's. Preferred the Duncan's but not by as much as you'd expect. Cheapo's did ok for the money. Have heard better pickups than Duncan's and other top dollar pups that cost a lot less though, so just a shame you can't try them out like this in a shop.

    So, all power chords are double stops but not all double stops are power chords. Or is it the other way around? Edit: I guess what I mean to ask is, are they roots and 5ths or is it any two notes? Just trying to better understand the theory behind it.

    You dont know the neck radius of a standard Strat off hand?. Strat is much "chimier". Ibanez sounds a bit more metal/hard rock. F.R. bridge allows one to do some crazy stuff and not fear being 100% out of tune after two measures. I prefer the Strat. You have preserved your musicality with your advanced technical ability. This always seems to be a rare thing with any advanced musican. As Keith Richards famously said: "The music is in between the notes." And "Whos got the heroin?"

    Gibson has ruined that guitar's tone with those super bright pickups. They are definitely going against the natural tone of the les paul.

    my first electric was a surprisingly good fully functioning guitar for £10. i needed new strings but they were like £6.99 it seems to be a strat copy called “Boston” if that helps anyone. i got it second hand from a shop called Ca$hing Inn most stuff in there is old and boring but i was surprised to see a £10 guitar and decided to check it out so i bought it.

    The example at 6:10 is a good one, fretting the B string with the pinky and bending the G. Seems like a unison bend; I'm more familiar with fretting the B further down the neck and bending the G further up the neck. Everyday is a school day!

    Hi Darrell. I have enjoyed your perspective and HONESTY regarding a certain manufacturer as that relates to headstock design, headstock angle, and string break angle at the nut. In your opinion does this guitar share the same design flaws? I have not had the opportunity to compare the guitar myself to that other brand. I would really appreciate reading your thoughts. All the best! Joe C
