    Luke lll or Majesty, or?

    A Luke lll and a Majesty both look like they could potentially be good choices to be my next guitar, at least I get excited thinking of buying one.

    My sound? Light rock, country, preferring clean sounds with a bit of reverb and delay now and again but thatís about it.

    I currently have a Cutlass SSS and a Sabre.

    Are either the Luke or Majesty a good fit, or a bad fit based on the sounds I like to make? Is there another model that you think might be a better choice?

    Thx for your thoughts and sharing any experiences you are willing to articulate. I pretty much have to buy to try a MM or drive for many hours to play one in a store..

    I'd say look at the stingray, but you already have a Sabre, and I would wager the pickups are somewhat similar.

    I have a Luke III SSH, and it is very versatile. I haven't looked much at the majesty or JP models, as I like 22 fret guitars and the neck position farther from the bridge.

    There's also always the St Vincent Goldie. Definitely great for cleans.

    On the Albert Lee SSS, HSS, or HH?

    I have an AL HH, never tried the other iterations, though I guess for Albert Lee himself his original sss was basically his tele-slayer. The HH is a very warm clean, on the darker end but still really clear with a piano-like resonance. It's my go to for warm jazz tones. Because the two humbuckers are on a 5 way switch, however, it opens up more tele and Strat tones than a typical two humbucker guitar. To me that's the guitar's real x-factor.
