  1. Thanks everybody for your answers and contributions. Made some interesting reading, and some great model photos. Just before Christmas, I privately bought a Marshall amp. The owner asked if I would also take his old black and white Strat off his hands too for a meagre £30.... It was an exact double of the one in my original post with identical headstock and weight. Well...you can guess the rest! Cheers again for all of your input.

  2. This great number was composed by Kevin Romang and is copyrighted by Duo Astral Plane (Kevin Romang and Silvia Plegniere). I played this using my Fender '56 NOS Stratocaster with the neck and middle pickups (Fender 57/62's) both used together, into the excellent Vintage VST Host software produced by Christian Boileau, available absolutely FREE at - https://vintage-sounds.freeforums.net/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMjwxi8HDlU

  4. I’ve had three “real” Les Pauls. One, a Studio, was fantastic and I regret selling it. The other two I just didn’t gel with. There was a Traditional which weighed more than a family car and a gorgeous Tribute which sounded great but was really unbalanced - the opposite of neck dive meant the body was always trying to drag itself off my knee when sitting to play. I’d give up on the idea, but there’s something about the 24.75 scale, twin humbucker arrangement that really appeals so I keep finding myself looking at LP clones and wondering…. I don’t want to spend a lot (having lost a ton on the previous forays into LP-world) and I think my Gibson itch is well and truly scratched so I’ve ended up looking at the Cort CR250 and the ESP LTD EC-256. Or maybe an Ibby AR420 double cut. Alternatively, I might start looking at SG clones. What seems not to be an option is to just play the bloody guitars I actually own…. Curse you, GAS!

  5. Ooh, nice! Significantly cheaper than GG for the same guitar (-£80). I’ve always fancied one with P90s, but have no need for another guitar, I don’t even play the 2 electrics I already have much at all. However, as we know, that’s not how GAS works.

  6. Ooh, my GAS monster likes the Copper Red LSE20…. https://www.eltoromusic.co.uk/yamaha-revstar-element-rse20---red-copper-5172-p.asp Chambered and sculpted body too. I need to try one of these.

  7. Love that Ibanez double cut look, takes me right back to the ‘70s. Maybe not to everyone’s taste, but check out the Yamaha Revstar range, these really fly under the radar, but seem great and even have a couple of high profile users: Chris Buck & Matteo Mancuso.

  8. You might like to cast your glance in the 'P90' direction, as being single coils with versatility ..? A split-coil humbucker guitar might suit, too. I have Xaviere Thinline with such humbuckers, which sounds fine through my Jazz Chorus amps. Just a thought on options...

  9. They look great. (What would KDH say, though? )

  11. Putting a year to this will be hard without any sort of serial number to go on. Encore have been under the JHS umbrella since 1980 (there’s a little bit more of the brand history here; https://jedistar.com/encore/amp/) and I’d guess that a Strat copy with a Fender-style headstock has been a regular part of their catalogue from day one. There may be some clues in the pickup cavities, in the neck pocket or under the pick guard if you feel like stripping the guitar down - otherwise, all we have to go on is the aged appearance of the pickups and that, to my mind, puts it somewhere in the late eighties or nineties. Which is a wild guess on my part but with nothing else to go on….

  12. Well, if I ever manage to sell the Ric 4003s that I have listed in the Other Place, I’m having one of these Revstars. Until then, I’m not allowed….
