    It's good I mostly play originals

    here it is ! or maybe not .. I find it easier to record the song in a daw and then play to it as if in a group setting. Good Luck. At my age I can remember songs from the sixties but not from last week.

    GAS - NAD small practice amp

    Had a similar setup in a Squire 15, Not nearly as pretty. Sounded pretty good but I plugged it into my Marshal 4x12 cab and it was night and day, sounded fantastic and very loud when dimed. great catch ! I sold the Squier for $40.00

    1963 Curiosity

    Can't a pencil date be erased and redone ? Like the beautiful paint job (not) you can see the orange peel and it looks like it was reassembled before it was dry. I would run fast AWAY from this pile of doggie do do

    Have you ever weighed a strat?

    Hmm, you could : 1. Bring it with you to a doctors appointment. 2. Bring it to a veterinarian appointment 3. Take it to the Post Office and have it weighed. 4. Weight yourself with it and without it. 5. Use a drug dealer scale (not a small user one). Find someone to convert Kg to lbs. 6. Say...

    Humbucker Music...your experience?

    I'm with, who are they ? never heard of them ! Are they online only or a National Brand ? If they are national then it sucks for them that no-one here knows them :)

    Distortion pedals that pair well with tube amps...

    I'm just an old fart who does not use pedals any more, my playing out is now in the garage with a question for ye, If you buy a cheap pedal and you like its sound why bother buying the expensive version ?

    A bit of advice before buying

    Are you a collector or a player ? 14k e things seem like a lot of cash to me for a daily player, Get a new Strat for $3,500 and enjoy the hell out of it. unless you just became a collector who should learn everything about collecting guitars before purchasing one.

    Thoughts on low vs high action on strats changing with age

    9's and 10's set as low as possible. I started on an old cheap High String acoustic that could mangle your fingers, then I got my first electric and lowered it down to above buzz, been there ever since. I could care less what anybody else does, this is a personal thing

    may I know your most used skill/technique to jam ?

    How to explain ? My music knowledge is next to None. I just listen, then play without thinking about it. A little harder now that I am almost completely deaf, works only with quality headphones near max volume. PSA: Protect your hearing !

    How much is this strat worth?

    You want good return ? Buy a 2008 Epiphone Special P90, mine appreciated almost 100% in 14 years. Or was it a 2012 ? gotta check, well I checked and it was a 3/2013 so only 9 years. bought for $90 new, now selling for $179. I'm gonna be RICH in a hundred years

    How much is this strat worth?

    If I was going to invest in guitars I would certainly do a **** load of research FIRST to back up your hunches of things increasing. A market crash will decimate guitar value. Only good investments are units played by / signed by big names. These are special and few in numbers unlike a 77. As...

    Made in Mexico fret edges

    Literally bleeding? They were that sharp? YUP! when it started I had to leave after cleaning the guitar. They don't like you putting guitars back with blood on them
