Oddly enough, it all started with a MIM, two-toned burst. Very 54ish. Then I went for the real deal, a 54AVRI, one of those 1954 produced. Then I got thinking that I'd never had a Strat with a rosewood board. Not in 50 plus years of playing. Well, GC had a deal on a vintage white one with a rosewood board, so that problem was solved. Except once I got the feel for the MIA, I had to have a maple board version to keep it's sister company. And then, just yesterday I found an AVRI 65, the one in Burgandy Mist, that was just to hard to pass up. So now I have five incredible players, and I'm wondering what will pop up next. I know it's called GAS but the non-prescription medications don't seem to help. How do you stop this craziness. By the way, the same thing happened a year ago with P90 loaded Les Pauls. Maybe I should start looking for bulk string sales. ?????
