C'mon, JB. I need to bask in the reflected glory of my $7k Custom Shop Strat. How else will I reaffirm to myself and others that I'm a 'serious' musician?

Francis Dunnery and Yngwie played Japanese Squires in the early '80's because they were better than what the USA was throwing out the door at the time. I even remember Francis talking about it on a Channel 4 program back in the UK.
Indeed I often wonder where Norman is now. Probably wintering with his mother in Guildford. A cat, rain, Vim under the sink, and both bars on. But old now, there is no true beauty without decay.

I'm determined not to go down the pickup rabbit hole! As a recent convert to stratomacasterers, I am entirely satisfied ( for once) in the stock pickups in my G&L. To me they nail the sound I have in my head.

So John Mayer has some interesting wiring going on in the silver sky and the pickups are voiced with scooped mids, like his earlier pickups, the big dippers, fascinating! Must be something to do with the combination of amps he uses that makes it all sounds so good...
