Wanted to do some fuckin' around with the crapocaster and needed to take the strings off to do it.
Didn't want to put another set of more expensive ones on to check the work, and all I had was a set of Ernie 11-54 Beefy Slinkys I picked up whenever ago for $4.
I looove the way they sound on it with the P90s and the slapback effect. Threw a little bit of fuzz on there, too. The feel of the beefier size is also appealing.
Started playing guitar for a hip hop collective a couple of weeks back not sure it's going to go very far they're good but they can't even agree on a name. Just did a performance with about half of them and it was wicked.
