    So, I just noticed I've been promoted/upgraded to "Strat-O-Master". Don't know when that happened or what that means. Should I suddenly feel masterful and self-important?

    You have now earned the power to tell people their relic Strat sucks.

    If you like, but it's not nearly as prestigious as getting your first pair of sweatpants.

    That's when you know you've arrived!

    Trust me. I'm a Dr.

    You should be receiving a strat talk hoodie in the mail. When you get to ninja strat level, you get a gold watch.

    Delivery not until Friday, I don’t think I’ll sleep a wink until they arrive.

    OK, so it must be the post-count thing, I see I'm over 500.....hadn't noticed that. My fiance has told me if I spent as much time practicing guitar as I do on the internet, I'd be pretty good.

    You all now have my permission to play your relics while wearing sweat pants. ;)

    Well done, I've just looked and I am too (I don't look at those things usually).

    It's good because in all other areas of my life I am labelled 't**t'. Mr Bit will translate for those who are confused I'm sure.

    Funny you should say that, I'm usually labelled with the stronger northern version...

    I do not know about "masterful"...but I always feel "self-important" and thought it a prerequisite for membership here;). Maybe we should start a poll? Masterful...Self-Important...Both Masterful and Self-Important...What you talking about, Willis?o_O
