    Hi Folks!
    My first hand association with the Strat began with a Squire in 1989. Unfortunately about a year later it was stolen when my apartment was burglarized. It's replacement was an American Std Strat that I own to this day. I'm a hobbyist player and amateur builder looking forward to learning a lot, and hopefully contributing a bit to what is obviously a very knowledgeable membership.

    Welcome in Brother!!! Please keep all hands and feet inside the ride at all times. Do not unbuckle yourself at any time during the ride and show us pictures while having fun. Those are all requirements for membership but they are not the limit of the scope of them.

    Hey fos1, this is my Strat, completely stock. . It was my first serious instrument, and I'll probably have it until I die. Still love the way it looks, plays and sounds.

    Started building about 3 years ago with a Tele kit, which is now owned by my grandson. I was really pleased by the results and enjoyed the process. I've built several guitars since then, all hardtails. I'm currently working on my first traditional Strat with 3 single coils and a trem.

    Thanks for your interest!
