I jammed with the EJ Strat last night, through my £30 Joyo Ultimate Drive stompbox and the house’s very nasty Marshall Valvestate combo. Sounded FANTASTIC, got some compliments.
I know it was the guitar first, pedal second and no thanks to the amp, as the next guy to play – a great fusion/blues player with a Heritage H535 (their take on a 335) – played really well but the leads sounded like a wasp in a box.
Guitar sorted, I think. God bless Jason Lollar. Seriously thinking about one of his pickups for the neck position in my ’73 Tele now….
