  1. Funny thing the Fender Strat I just got a few months back the neck pickup stopped working and it had AY written on all three pickups.... I guess she fell asleep that day on that one... lol
  2. I'll admit upon watching the first two episodes I was in complete shock I'm all caught up and I must say this is the first TV Series I find quite addicting..... It really makes you think how not so long ago woman were actually treated that poorly.... And in many ways still......
  3. When we get back to playing out, our drummer better have an electronic kit. I'm so tired of playing at ff and fff.
  4. Never bothered to ask her about brand preferance. But if she was ever in the market to buy herself one, I would direct her towards a Gibson SG.
  5. 1967 Hofner 500/1 and a 2001 Hofner Cavern Bass. They work for what I do.
  6. Yeppers.... I contacted the seller and he said amonst all the case candy I would find the strap locks... They look like a flying saucer...
  7. So the fffffFender arrived and I changed the strings and gave everything a good cleaning and polish... I'm a little paranoid these days, especially when other hands have been all over it. The guitar is in prestine condition, and it plays pretty good... I'm having a time figuring out whats up with the lack of strap buttons... theres only a chrome hole / bushing. ... It kinda has a 63 Jimi vide or Jeff Beck vibe to it.... overall for the price I'm contenet.
  8. Hmmm.... I figure they can't be as bad as those awful low flat frets on Gibsons in the 70's..... Whoever was the fret dresser back in those days, they should have hid all his or her files. I've refretted all my 70's Gibsons.
  9. We didnt have a bully issue (only one incident). There were five of my sibblings that all went to elementary school at the same time (4 boys and 1 girl) so nobody gave a second thought about creating problems with us. My oldest brother was a straight cholo gang member throughout the latter part of elementary and junior high, so even the notorious of bullys stayed away exccept for one incident. He pushed my sister off the swings and broke her arm. Basically my brother and his cholo buddies blackened both his eyes and knocked out his front teeth and cut open his lip pretty bad. When he finally came back to school he wouldnt even look our way. I remember just throwing him the dirtiest stares in class... lol
  10. When I was rehearsing and gigging regularly, I'd changed my string every week. It wasnt so much for the tone but more for tuning stability. Basically I was changing strings on four different guitars
  11. Ugh.... My hands have had enough problems with all hand sanitizer I've been using over the last 14 months. I'll see if I can find some shorter saddle adjustmunt screws..... I'm sure there has to be an aftermarket solution for this somewhere on the interwebs
  12. The bigger headstock does look a little out of place, but the neck tilt feature does have me a bit intrigued.
  13. I'm still trying to get my head around the reasoning why / how by wearing a mask in this current environement affects the economy and prevents from opening businesses.
  14. Definitely the trifecta . Nice geetars for sure!!!
  15. The last time I owned a fffffffFender was in 1983 when something possessed me to buy a 1979 Anniversary Strat at Guitar Center, then immediately sold it two weeks after buying it.... lousy sticky maple fretboard and the sound of swarming bees when I plugged it into my SMF Tour Head.... Just AWFUL. Anywhoo I came across this heavy cream color 2003 Fender USA Strat with a rosewood fretboard and an unusually large headstock. I also just learned the fifth hole on the neck plate for some neck tilt adjustment deal.... I'll make sure I wonโ€™t mess with that. I should be receiving it at some point next week, but this was purely out of necessity because of a new band I just joined with friends and the obnoxious drummer hinting โ€œI might consider acquiring a strat.โ€๐Ÿ–•..... I should had dropped a hint to him to maybe consider electronic drums due to the lack of only being able to play at fff...... I'll wait until I get more comfortable. Pics to come
