    RIP Jet Black

    My thoughts also Simon. He was still playing up until 2015 which is even more impressive. Give's me a lttle hope that I could still dream of having a rock career at 44. 🤣

    Seeking some purchase advice about 2003 mim strat

    As some have noted £400 is probably the average 2nd hand price of a Mex Stamdard. They are not IMO worth more given the specs. They are however a good platform for upgrading. I have a 2012 but spent a fair bit replacing the ceramic pickups, trem block, machine heads etc. Plays great now. 🙂👍

    So how good were you in 1993 then?

    I was the same age as Trucks in 93. However, whilst he nailed it I was struggling with Nirvana riffs. Was much better on bass. I was absorbing James Jamerson's Motown style like a sponge. 🤣

    Pearl Harbor

    Agreed. There's love for your country then there's nationalism. And nowt good ever came of that!

    Rhythm guitar

    Actually here's a better example of David Byrne holding up the rythmn end if you can remain from being distracted by Aidrian Belew's genius. Not bad for a left hander.

    Opinions on signature guitars? Just in general?

    This ☝️ pretty much! Just as long as it doesn't have a signature on the headstock, change stand that! I know who they are! Don't need their moniker ruining a perfectly good headstock. Take note Mr Mascis, Marr, Blackmore etc! 🤣

    If the Titanic went down today.

    Some believe it was the sisrer ship Olympic that sank after it had been swapped out for Titanic in some mad insurance scam.

    What guitar does for me that I never thought I would need...

    This ☝️ and then some. Guitar has saved me from myself on many an occasion. Still does! 🙂

    MIA parts on MIJ body/neck?

    UK based? You should try Charles Guitars . That's where I get all my parts. They have a good selection of stuff that'll get your partscaster build looking authentic. Do a lot of Japanese compatable stuff i.e. Gotoh! See below:👍🙂

    What do you call a vintage reissue that is now old enough to be a vintage guitar in itself?

    This ☝️ probably would still be the marker to judge by today. We should set this in stone IMO @Scott Baxendale. 🤣

    What do you call a vintage reissue that is now old enough to be a vintage guitar in itself?

    Any Original Fender Model that is pre Dan Smith era I would consider vintage. Anything else, including re-issues are just old guitars IMO. 🙂👍

    E Serial Number Squier Stratocaster

    These sadly are the threads where @Guitarmageddon input will be missed. Ryan probably would have been one of the first to respond to this giving his no nonsense but honest appraisal. ☹️

    What's the REAL reason behind your guitar/amp/gear buying?

    Apart from very deep rooted complex mental health issues un-diagnosed by any living clinician and a bank account that i studiously and obsessively keep emptying I have no reason to buy gear. 😉👍
