I bought a squire standard tele a few months ago for playing in the street. the potential for my brown bear tele falling or getting broken was bothering me so I bought the squire. It’s a great guitar and works great for the street. Tonight I brought my Mexican strat our instead. It was great having a vibrato on the guitar and the guitar plays great, but honestly the sound of the guitar didn’t work as well as the tele. The other problem I have with my street rig is the amp(Roland street cube). It’s just doesn’t give you anything back. The amp doesn’t react to your playing, there is not a lot of nuance to this set up. I feel like when I’m playing in the street I’m fighting Witt every note I play. The guitar by itself plays really good. The amp doesn’t sound bad for what it is. It’s great for what I’m doing. I travel light with the street rig so I know it’s a trade off between the price point and and durability vs my pedicure rig I use for gigs. Now that said I like the squire and I’m going back and fourth on whether or not to mod the guitar. Mods come in two trains of thought. 1) cool boutique mods that cost way more than the guitar but give me a custom guitar that’s and plays great and has cool features. 2) cool mods for the street. I originally wanted to put Keith banjo tuners in it so I could use different tunings quickly on the street. The problem is they are way expensive and for that I could have bought a better guitar, and how many tunings am I really gonna use? So looking for ideas whatever they are. I know there is a lot of experience on this forum and I’m hoping to get a great idea I’ve completely over looked. thanks in advance for the help Pictures of the guitar including guest appearance from Damian Bacci.
