    :eek:… what am I to do… last spring I thinned the herd by 4 Strats and a Tele. But today I was just in my room and wailing away and I wondered how the ol’ girl SRV was doing. She probably hasn’t been out the closet in 2 or 3 years… it’s a shame really. So I dug her out and she got me freaking out.

    I been down the Texas rabbit hole for a few weeks now. Picking up a lick here and there. Trying to dial in a sound. Getting the CS Deluxe sure helps with that. But man I was listening to these guitars and how the pickups be different in all of them… so since I got the Deluxe and the HD-130 kinda doing the right thing I had to dig way way back in the closet to get her too. It’s like seeing a old friend… you know you love’s but you don’t see’m everyday. That’s how my guitars are. When one comes out it’s like Christmas all over again… the SRV made with LOVE. Smoke’in!!!

    Mine is the so rare it’s almost non-existent Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. But the shape of them are special also. It’s a Mannish neck…

    I have most of mine out on racks all over the house, but I keep a few in cases in the workroom so I know the feelin'. Now you got me thinking I need to dig out The Judge. Haven't played it seriously since Ron replaced the pickups, other than a test run....

    I wonder if the signature strat models from the 90s have that bulky body contour like the standard models from the 90s. Anyone know?

    Nothing bulky about mine… it’s the only 90’s Strat I own.

    That's how wormholes in the space time continuum happen. Don't even say that out loud.

    I think you have asked about it before? Or someone else has a 240V one around here.

    It’s the best I’ve ever had. And I’ve owned an original. Well it’s sounds the most like Hendrix then anything else I’ve heard. To me that’s the best. I have lots of Deja Vibes, Micro Vibe, Dry Bell and MXR … I need to sell them cause I’ll never use them again…. I did sell the Drybell in one day. The Funky Vibe does that live Fillmore East thing. Like it’s going and coming at one time… all that stuff on the floor in that picture is just there… I’m not playing thru any of it … Just Strats into the Handwired Deluxe Reverb…. But if I do plug into to it well it sounds like this….
