ok so, that's the second high E Ive broken in the space of 5 days Fairly certain it was even the exact same bend! Its breaking where my finger is bending the string, not at the head or the bridge. Does that suggest Im hitting it too hard or my pick is to pointy?
This is on the Tele, Ive never broke strings this frequent before. Would it be worth sticking 11s on?

After MUCH deliberation and being in the sound booth of the shop with a bunch of guitars and a rather tasty orange half stack for ages it boiled down to either the Hendrix strat or the classic 60s tele. Both were great.
The Tele won
I kinda wanted to like the strat more tbh and its a great guitar, I wish I coulda bought them both. The tele just felt better to me. There was really nothing between to two. The mojo of the tele just clicked with me, I guess
I love the 7.25 radius, Its quite subtle I think compared to the 9.5 but Its great. first thing I did on the tele was crank it up and hit big bends high up the neck...... no problem at all, no choke, nothing and that's with no setup.
If I had to pick out a physical thing that set the two apart, too much lacquer on the fretboard of the strat the tele being rosewood doesnt have that issue and I thought if I bought the strat I would def need a tone mod for the bridge pickup or just replace all the p.ups but the tele.... I might just leave the p.ups for now as I quite like them. I might switch them later but for now they sound quite good to me.
But.... I can def see a strat in my not too distant future coz I still want one, probably with a reverse headstock I might take a punt on the vintage Fillmore one
so, all in all Im a very proud owner of a new classic series 60's tele not even took the tag off yet!

Anyone got opinions on the vintage fillmore guitar from Trev Wilkinson might compare to fenders hendrix strat?
the fillmore is American Alder body and wilkinson hardware, I think it has a 7.25 radius opposed to Fenders 9.5 and it has a rosewood neck, which personally I like.
Quite a hefty difference in price but from what Ive read the Vintage brand seems to get pretty good reviews overall.
Sounds fantastic here - but tbf the dude has changed the pickups and plays really well
a more raw demo (allbeit much longer )
Can you really make a guitar to the level of a decent modern Mexican fender at this kind of £250 - £300 pricepoint?

The new Darkthrone track is a bit good
I managed to snag a pre-order for their new album on orange vinyl. They came up for sale in the morning and were sold out by evening. Dunno how many there were but I got one and that's the important thing
