    Hi, I'm Duncan. I thought I'd join yet another forum.

    I have a beater '93 strat that people like to hate on, but I like it. I'm about to do some more work on it and just posted a thread in tech-talk.

    I work out of home fixing and repairing vintage home audio gear such as speakers, amps/receivers, and turntables. I also fix guitar amps.

    Hey Raccoon/Duncan, welcome to Strat Talk.
    Why do people like to hate your 93 Strat?
    You had better post some photos so we can show it some love...or not :D

    Hi Duncan- I also live in Ontario and I just looked up how long it would take me to drive from where I live to Ottawa. If I took the 'fast' northern route, just over 19 hrs to go the 1,800 kms (1,100 miles). I live close to the Manitoba border. Anyway welcome, I think you'll find lots of good info here.

    LOL, on moving west from Oakville ON, the best I could do in one shot was to get to Tower Hill truck stop near Ignace ON.
    22 hours straight...pulled over and slept in the Explorer, did it again a year later with the wife's car and the dog...same thing (the wife flew) :eek:

    Welcome Duncan, glad you made it to the strat roadhouse. Post some snaps of the '93, we promise no hate, only love, and in fact if it's a pre fire MIM, lots of us would actually sit up and take notice.

    Here's some pics. I've got some nudes of it in my other thread.
    It is a USA, I got it for 600CND a couple years ago.

    Condition is probably what people most don't like about it, but I've never seen a cheaper USA strat. And I put the texas specials in it, it sounds wicked.

    It is a lot lighter than other strats I've held, I wonder what wood it is.
