    Beware this Special Edition Classic 60s MIM

    Fender Special Edition '60s Stratocaster Electric Guitar | GuitarCenter This is a nice guitar, and it is nice to find such guitars in stock at Guitar Center for a change, but this juxtaposition of a bright yellow with the typical strong Mint Green modern pickguard, is vomitable in person. The...

    PSA on closure, Reston Best Buy

    Normally I recommend against buying CVs because of their origin (trade reasons). But right now there's a really sweet CV Strat, 3 piece alder body and flatsawn neck, no shop damage or issues, marked $ 199 and I bet you could get it for less. For one of ya'll who need a Strat having had to sell...

    Musicians Friend not Strat friendly

    Latest catalog, with one of the Avett brothers on it (Seth) has adverts for: $ 499 MIM Standard Strat; And maybe 3 Fender Strats of $ 1,199 or more. And that's all. Unless you count the Pawn Shop with the S body at $ 799. About 150 pages. What's the deal? Are they supposed to sell themselves?

    Do you think trem springs are a wear item?

    Yes or no? Do you eventually replace the trem springs on your Stratocaster or S style guitar? I was thinking about occasions when I do change them, as well as thinking about the percentage of instances where I replaced the springs or strut assemblies on different cars. If you sell or trade...

    Daisy Guards the Telecasters

    She keeps them from roughhousing amongst one another. It is how guitars get rusticated, if you're not careful. :razz:

    Favorite song by artist Jackson Pollock

    I just wanted to poke fun at referring to Bieber and Gaga as artists. Made me think of when they get Elephants to paint in artists colors. :grin: I know I've hurt someone's feelings (and I'm sorry!) but I thought it was food for thought and worth saying. They're stars. Stardom is what...

    Lefties near Falls Church, VA

    There's a Guitar Center there (one of 2 in Fairfax County) with 3 used lefty Strats for sale. The one I think is especially worthy of being checked over is a MIM Standard SB "Partscaster" with a premium MIJ JV style Fenderjapan neck on it. Chunky fat neck, Gotoh vintage tuners and very nice...

    Are some CV Strats undersized?

    I played a CV Strat in a store ($ 248 ) and it felt very small to me. The neck was perfectly quartersawn - the wood was beautiful. I am not gonna offer a review because the strings were not that good, but I can't get over how tiny this guitar felt. Neither the guitar I played before or after...

    Best Buy String sets sale 2 + 1 = 2

    I mean, buy 2 sets and get another free. Example: D'addario EXL 115s for $ 3.99 times 2 divided by three equals $ 2.66 per pack. That's about the best you can do. In the store; over the 'net and free shipping. I got me some in my hot hands already. Store = sales tax.

    Please show me your Gold Anodized Strat PGs

    :) I have a new 8 hole Fender brand gold anodized pickguard and I'm not feeling the love I expected for the original project I bought it for. It is very VERY "brand new" and almost reminds me of a mirror pickguard in some ways. I am not selling it; I just need some inspiration for where it...

    New 2010.5 version American Deluxe

    The one with N3 pickups (replacing the existing SCNs) and a passel of new colors. And from what I hear a compound radius ( 9/5-X ) fretboard as a new feature. I was so sure Fender would upgrade the Deluxe within a year of replacing the "Series" with the Standard, and had pretty much given up...
