I have two very different Strats, a G6118T Anniversary, a Gibson SG and a Fender Telecaster. They're all different. There's overlap but each guitar has its voice. My only suggestion is to try a few Gretsch guitars. Try different pickups. Try different controls. Try hollow, semi-hollow, and chambered guitars and find what you like. That may be difficult in northern Norway. It's difficult anyplace far from a major city. The sun sets in December where you live and doesn't rise again until February. Here's your excuse to take a vacation, a shopping vacation. Choose a city with a big music scene. London, perhaps, or elsewhere in the UK. Good luck. Don't buy on impulse. Find a guitar to fall in love with.I thinking about purchasing an Gretsch guitar in the future. What are the advice for an Strat guy ,with an love for HSH pickup sets?
SSS strat for me but I have a Broadway Jade Penguin and find the HS filtertrons to be close enough to singles and close enough to humbuckers without being all PAF like that I love just the two. Any chance to try out some Filtertron Gretsches?I thinking about purchasing an Gretsch guitar in the future. What are the advice for an Strat guy ,with an love for HSH pickup sets?
