A couple of months ago, I posted on here looking for suggestions for power pop songs for a cover band project I'm working on. Well, it has come to fruitiion - we're terrible and a lot of power pop songs are much more complicated and challengin to play than you'd think (try playing "Go All The Way" . . . !), but I'm having a blast, playing a lot and really enjoying music fo rthe first time in a while.
Which is now leading me to want another guitar - I'm currently playing a Rickenbacker 620 - I really like it and it fits most of the music quite well, but . . . well, you know, I'm a gear head, so I want more stuff! I think I'm set with my pedalboard and amp, so another guitar is the next logical step :-)
So sticking with the power pop theme, I'm thinking an SG might be the right addition to my line up. P-90 or Humbuckers? Any other guitar I should be looking at? Strat? Tele? another Ric (like maybe a 360?)
I've never really liked Les Pauls, so I'm not planning on looking at those, but tell me if that's a terrible mistake. and 335's just feel huge to me - maybe a 339?
