    Oh no, not ANOTHER Tremolo Cover question! :)

    Off. They look like a boarded up storefront for Gingers House of Wigs when they're on.

    That morning you wake up and something is missing?

    I've found waking up to discover "something" that's still there is even more traumatic than something missing.

    Remembering Rory Gallagher

    Same here. Saw him open for Rush and hadn't even heard of him up to that point. A pleasant surprise indeed.

    Rosewood Oil?

    Guitar players love to make mountains out of any and all molehills we can find. Guitar player DNA. And when we can't find one, we'll create a new molehill to begin the mountainizing process on.

    Unsure on the finish on my Dark Night AmPro2 Strat

    Looks great in the standing pic. A little washed out laying down. That particular room lighting probably isn't doing it any favors. Keeper.

    Who is your all time fav strat player

    Jimi. Then the recent discovery of Roy Buchanan. For me, he's the only other guitar player that got close to duplicating the feeling I had hearing Hendrix for the 1st time. Instantaneous.

    Rosewood Oil?

    I've never "oiled" a rosewood board in 30+ years of predominantly playing RW. No problems at all using a quick FastFret wipedown. Has always worked fine for me. Looks good, plays good. That being said, if I were to start oiling, my first move would be trying whatever it is ElectGumbo does to...

    Could the Fender Custom Shop build The Edge Signature Stratocaster for me?

    "Wet" meaning actually hand-signed, not a sticker.

    Is one's guitar collection truly complete without

    Eric Johnson signature Stratocaster. What are your thoughts on it?

    All the more reason to take a serious look at the EJ, imo.

    When do you become a "cork sniffer"?

    When you can afford wine that has a cork instead of twist off.

    I am confused about custom shop strats

    "Sir, the defenders of all thing Fender have spoken. Their voices heard throughout the land!" Vengeance is mine," said Leonadis. "Bring the OP to me!!" he thundered.

    Help identifying a Strat with a Custom Shop sticker

    Heres hoping karma throat punches the sorry SOB that sold it to you.

    Vintage Strat size vs New Strat size?

    I think a black guitar, as in JM above and Hendrix at Monterey, probably can sell a bit of a size illusion sometimes. Like the slimming effect in black clothing. Hendrix seems to dwarf that black/RW strat at Monterey compared to later on when he was playing maple.

    Variations on a theme...

    Good job. Enjoyed listening to those.

    Tall narrow or vintage frets seems like the most immediate "fix"if the having room problem is the primary objective. If it were me, and taking into consideration you're moving away from metal tones, I'd bite the bullet and get the best guitar I could afford, that has the room I was looking...

    "Tone is in the hands" - silliest buzzword of the decade?

    Which word is the "buzzword" being debated?

    Fender American Performer fake?

    That slopped COA would concern me. That mess can't be the original from Fender. Where's EGumbo? He did a replacement COA through Fender, I believe. Did Fender fill out the replacement in crayons like this one?

    Fake? Is this Hendrix strat real? Help!

    Not even close to being real.

    Why not Just why not

    I think I'm having an epiphany of some kind. This is brilliant.
