Bought this used today,
I paid for it before I (tried) to lift it, otherwise I may have left it there lol (this thing is heavy).
Done three stair ramps at the owner house, one at mine, my arm is in pain.
Sounds sweeeeeeet though! I plan to keep it in my music room as main amp for the loud clean...
I have made a side by side comparison between two nice guitars of mine, a Tokai Springy Sound ST60 made in Japan in 1979 and a Classic Series 60 Stratocaster made in Mexico in 2015. Both are vintage inspired, spec wise.
Hope you enjoy!!!
On the market for this unicorn, would you go for a recent one or for a 90s or early 2000s one? Also, is someone able to give me a price range for these? I have little reference points and prices vary from year and conditions....
Thanks a lot everyone!
Lindy Fralin pickups tone demo.... Are they better than Fender pickups? Are those really worth the money?
This is an AVRI strat that has always been quite dark sounding, I ended up switching to Fralin and removing tone control from middle pickup.
Great overall improvement but I am still not 100%...
I stumbled upon this old video of mine, I remember I was working at this cover during the first lockdown here in Italy.
What do you all think about it? I still consider it the best fretjob I can do (really over my limits).
It's on a beautiful LP, don't ban me please!
ST50, 60, 80, 100, what's the current price level nowadays? I am referring to Tokay springy sound spaghetti logo from late 70s early 80s mainly.
Looking for a reasonable price level to buy something in Europe.
Picked it up yesterday after your feedbacks, this time I was lucky. Few minor scratches here and there from normal play, little to none fret wear, the neck is rather chunky but feels way less chunky tham my '62 Hot Rod AVRI. Overall great feeling.
Cleaned, polished the frets, a quick look under...
Hi strat friends, I am going to have a look and possibly pick-up a MIM Cray Strat, as you know it's an hard tail strat. I was always interested in trying an hardtail and this baby could be the right one. Any feedbacks, opinions on the model and any drawbacks? I have heard mixed reviews on the...
Fully original, 3tsb maple neck, with original black case and all accessories, almost mint conditions.
Any idea on current market price? Anyone who recently has bought or sold one?
Thanks in advance!!!
I am trying to get a satisfactory tone out of my AVRI strat, so far the pickup swap from stock 57/72 to Lindy Fralin real 54 didn't do the trick to my ears at least. The guitar is quite dark sounding and it lacks lot of sparkle and quack especially in positions 2 and 4. Individual...
I have bought a Set of Lindy Fralin Real 54's, any thoughts on these?
I will make 3 videos to share with all of you this little experiment, from first check to installation to final sound test.
Let's see if I have found my dream TONE for my AVRI Strat.
I am excited I have bought a set of Lindy Fralin real 54 to load into my AVRI Strat. I am looking to some pictures of some neat and tidy pickup wiring, in particular how to wire the wires to the switch so that it's clean, neat, tidy and professional looking. Any help??? I have seen some damn...
I like Sob Rock because I can cover some of the songs (difficulty level is not too high).
Shouldn't matter but it does, acoustic cover.
I have created/recorded the whole thing with GarageBand and my guitar, of course...
Vintera 60 modified, classic Strat look with some modern touches like the 2 point pivot bridge, 9.5 inches radius, S1 switch that adds two additional pickup combinations. Pau ferro board.
Love, like or meh?
This is mine through all 7 tones.
I have an Hot Rod 62 Strat (57/62 pickups with the middle rwrp) that's driving me nuts.
In any selector position, if I am not touching any metal parts, I hear a loud hum/buzz. If I touch anything metallic (strings, bridge, jack plate, trem claw....), the hum disappear.
I have excluded the rest...
