    Sonic Blue vs Daphne Blue

    That upper bout is also painted over with a blueish paint. It covers the top and wraps around the back just a little. If you ever see pics of the back, you can see the lighter sonic blue next to that color.

    What Strat are you a sucker for?

    7–Step Cure for GAS

    I thought this video was pretty cool. I think steps one, two, five, and seven would be enough for me. Actually, just number seven would do it.

    When to flick the pickup selector switch in the middle of a song?

    Thanks for the input. For anyone else interested in this, I found these two videos on YouTube. Two different ways to conceptualize the process. The second guy likes to switch to the neck when the solo starts hitting the upper frets. One of them also gave the suggestion of flicking to the bridge...

    Did you ever get GAS for something you used to have no interest in?

    I’m not sure if this is the same article, but that link didn’t work so I looked it up. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/311641326_Gear_Acquisition_Syndrome_-_An_empirical_study_of_electric_guitar_players

    When to flick the pickup selector switch in the middle of a song?

    Interesting, I first learned (on a Les Paul) that the neck is for rhythm and the bridge is for solos, But I can see how you could do it the other way around, too.

    When to flick the pickup selector switch in the middle of a song?

    Any guidelines for certain positions during certain parts of songs, like the refrain, bridge, call and response, etc.?

    When to flick the pickup selector switch in the middle of a song?

    That does make sense. Start the solo with one sound, then as it reaches a crechendo, change pickups.

    I am philosophically opposed to Open Mic events.

    This looks awesome. I might drive down.

    Who else has left? I’ll assume anyone who doesn’t respond has left.

    Eras of American Standard Strat

    I’ve only owned a Deluxe version 2 for a short time and later, more recently a 2020 Ultra, so I never did a back to back comparison. All of the comparison reviews I’ve seen on YouTube say that the Ultra Noiseless (5th generation but I think they stopped using the term “generation”) pickups are...

    What about the fretboard radius? Please say that the vintage vibe isn’t ruined by a 9.5-inch radius.

    Eras of American Standard Strat

    It’s probably already been answered, but the Ultra is a little upgrade from the Professional II series. They have different color finishes and Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups, which are the fifth generation of Noiseless pickups. The neck is a modern D, compound radius neck, going from 10 inch...
