    Hi All.
    As a ReBeginner, I went and got a
    HM Strat in Bright White, and a nice little
    Mustang LT25 amp.

    In 1980something, I bought an Ibanez
    X Series in Gloss Black, and a little Gorilla Back Stage amp, and a pitch pipe. Started
    hanging with some garage bands to pick up tips and tricks.
    Then I got sidetracked and involved in
    Hot Rods and such. The guitar was put aside for some years, and only occasionally cleaned up and pretending to be " A Rock Star " LoL
    I saw an ad for the HM Reissue and went straight to Guitar Center and ordered it.
    That was IIRC February.
    Got it literally just before C19 shut down Illinois.
    I really like it. I still have my X, and about a month ago I got a great deal on a
    Jackson DK2, Transparent Blue Maple.
    I have dedicated time to really learn and I am an Old School Metal fan, and taking lessons.

    Looking forward to participating in
    Strat Talk.

    Nice. I have a white HM reissue too. Love it. Got a hard case for it. Case is Fender in Sonic blue. You are really going to need to post pics. F87FD33D-6D76-438B-8904-E2E0796976C9.jpeg

    Took a few minutes to figure out posting pics without a Host Site.
