Check it out. On this page you can listen to the comparitive recordings I've made of my four electric guitars and hear (or at least try to hear!) the differences between them.
I've made these recordings using my Line6 PodXT direct into a Boss MicroBR recording straight to mp3 format. I've used the same clean amp settings on the Pod for every recording on this page (if you have a PodXT or compatible Line6 device, download the tone here) but the volume levels of the recordings have been normalised. I've tried to play the same clean lick as evenly as I can.
Strat S1 (Fralin)
||Les Paul Std Lite
The four guitars are:
- Fender American Deluxe Ash Strat (with Lindy Fralin Blues Specials and S1 switching).
- A DIY 'FrankenStrat' put together out of various parts (with the SCN pickups from my AmDlx).
- My modified Godin SD.
- Gibson Les Paul Std. Lite
One thing that became apparent in making these clips was that my AmDlx Strat seems to have a lot less sustain than my other guitars and, surprisingly, the DIY Strat that was put together from random parts has bags of sustain! Could be down to an older set of strings on the AmDlx during the recording... I think an investigation is in order...
