I have a Telecaster that for the life of me, I cannot set it up to play easily. But after playing it for an hour or so, my Gretsch Pro Jet or my Heritage H-140 feel like the easiest guitars in the universe. There was a band that played where I used to live, and before their set, the guitarist would sit there at a table with a classical guitar, running through scales. Then on stage he'd pick up an electric and just rip everybody's face off.
