    Strat was run over by a car

    Was it still in tune? Well, it's definitely relic'd now! That sucks though.

    Tube based pedals

    Yes. I swear by my EHX Tube English Muff'n. Sounds fantastic through my '65 Twin Reverb. One advantage is that you can change tube brands for different tones. My favorite are the Telefunken ECC83 (12AX7's) that I pulled out of an old Scott hifi amp from the early '60's. They still work fine! One...

    String buzz all the way up the neck. Is this the Strat curse?

    Ever pick up one of your guitars and wonder why you don't play it more; And have no answer ??

    All the time! I'm constantly fixing up and modding guitars and I usually spend weeks on each one. When it's perfect, I move on to the next. When I pick them back up, I'm like: 'Whoa, this thing is great' Once it has good tuners, a well slotted bone nut, even and shiny frets, great pickups, CTS...
