Hey everyone, just found this forum today and am stoked! Can't believe I never bothered to look anywhere further than Norm's Rare Guitars Youtube channel for awesome strat talk. My name is Brendan and recently (two years ago) got back into playing guitar after taking 20 years off to play drums. I rescued my brothers two Strats from my parents storage unit. One is a supposed '59 (just posted that in the Stratocaster forum) and another 1988 AVRI made by John Cruz. I refinished it in black since a friend of ours stripped it and carved a flower of life into the body. I've got the "fever" for all things vintage and new guitars now and look forward to browsing around. My other guitars include a 1979 Les Paul Special and a Ernie Ball Axis Sport from 1994 I think. Nice to meet you all!
