  1. Man, I apologize as none of this was meant as a personal affront. In my neck of the woods it is sometimes referred to as "good-natured ribbing" and I admit it can get out of hand. Sorry to have offended.

  2. im buying it cause i want it and gonna use it and because its a bargain and because i think its just gonna be a little better than my affinity lol.

  4. are you saying buddy holly did not have his pick ups mounted to the body??????i all so did say i could be wrong. one thing im not wrong is that buddy did have a strat were his pick ups were screwed into the wood and control plate used to cover volume and tones .theres pictures on the net i will post them up
