    Squier Pro Tone Stratocaster

    Ive had 3 Pro tones. They are nice. But id only pay maybe $400 for them. Stock pups are pretty shrill and necks are quite thin. But now my x2 SQ MIJ basses and my SQ Stratocaster now they are worth the money!

    NPD - Klein Epic 65’s

    I have a set of older 61s marked 2010. Dident like them in 2 fenders, blamed the pickups at first but slapped it in a basswood 2003 tribute legacy and they rule. Super nice vintage tone

    Stratocaster Robert Cray anyone?

    I bought a fairly rare 2007 Violet cray over a year ago was a case queen, so much so the neck had never been adjusted. So the bad is you cannot tighten it enough to go fully strait or into back bow. If you loosen it i can get huge foward bow. But it is super stable never shifts winter to...

    Made in Mexico fret edges

    That is one thing ive noticed about MIM bad fret ends. I have a old beat squier CE with a wonderfuly chunky neck with beautiful frets/ends. But the few mim standards have been bad. My player jazzmaster was terrible but was worth the $35 to have my tech do his killer end fileing

    Do any of you prefer the look/feel of a Pau Ferro Fingerboard over a Rosewood Fingerboard?

    The only PF have kept is a 2018 classic player 60s stratocaster because it just sounds like magic. Best strat ive heard by far. Ugly FB...... im a dark RW guy I also have 2 carribean rosewood G&Ls. 1 Feels killer, ugly as sin/orange! 1 looks like dark RW.

    Blizzard Pearl bites the dust!!

    Your thinking about paying $2000 for a 2006 MIM standard strat. Horrible price. $500-to 600 tops. Ive bought 3 USA G&L legacys for around $700 shipped or less lately. $450 was the cheapest for a 1994! Mint

    2 similar strats. Different voices

    The LE It is a roasted maple deep c. But the few ive played arent that much bigger then the normal USA Cs maybe a tiny bit more shoulder. My favorite neck is my AO 60s chunky C that is a nice fat neck! The CP60s is closer but not as fat/shouldery

    2 similar strats. Different voices

    Interesting the CP neck is a bit chunkier and the USA a bit smaller. Dident think the roasted vs normal would make a difference, or if anything the roasted would be livelier. I love this mint tinged faded sonic blue with mint guard! Now i want to swap necks!

    Removing Treble Bleed
