FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / So, what would YOUR idea of a "miracle guitar" be?

Here's mine:

An electric guitar with a 6 rows of many pickup pole pieces running from the neck to the bridge. One row for each string, for a total of 6 rows.

Select the sound you want, based on an open string and which pole-piece you want. There is a sensor in the guitar that senses which fret you are on for any given string, and as you go up the neck, the active pole-piece changes to one closer to the bridge.

Gives a more consistent tone. Keeps it from getting darker as you go up the neck. Theoretically, at least in my brain.

What would your "miracle guitar" do?

It would make me sound like an OK guitar player. I own ten guitars -- none are working out.

Change its own strings. ;)

To be honest I'm not an engineer or really an "innovator." I enjoy simple woodworking but am comfortable with the fact that I'll never be able to craft an instrument that compares with my nicer guitars.

The smell of fine rosewood, the silking of a quartersawn spruce top and the feeling of striking a chord and listening to the vibrato as you shake the guitar back and forth is enough of a miracle for me.

I hope this doesn't sound smug or flip, but I'm going to say "Telecaster."

I think Telecaster players must be like iPhone users. I love my iPhone.

Looking for a Tele that does the Les Paul thing well. Just never really chased that particular itch down. Theres nothing really like either one to a purist and I always thought that is ok.

Agreed, I think mine are all defective. Why do I always get a warped one??

My idea of a guitar that changes its own strings:

It's a hollow-body. There are 6 large rolls of string under a trap-door by the bridge. There is a motor in the headstock, which is precisely strung so that when string is pulled off the roll, old string is cut off. Of course, there are brakes in the trap door compartment for tuning purposes.

Hmmm....I'm a Tele and LP guy (depending on the sound I want), but I like the cutaway on a strat.

How about a Tele, with a cutaway, that can give me the twang of a Tele or the full, beefy sound of a Les Paul at the flip of a switch. They've just never come up with splittable humbuckers that do both sounds really well.

Note that, like others above, it won't fix the fact that I'm not even up to mediocre standards as a player.

Slacker, it seems that Paul McCartney once had a Telecaster that he made double-cutaway, but I think it was because it was a right-handed model.

A Rickenbacker Fred "Sonic" Smith tribute 450-12, strung as a 6-string with humbuckers.

Most likely will never happen:(
