    Hey folks — just wanted to share ... Recently picked up my first Strat, an ’08 American Standard. My first post here was about some frustrations I ran into trying to set it up. I ended up dropping it off at the local shop. :)

    Anyway, I got it back today and had literally a minute and a half to try it our & capture a quick vid. I think it sounds pretty good through my Shiva, despite my clams. Still getting used to the feel of it ... my other guitars are USA Hamers and an old Ibanez RG, all with much flatter radii than the Strat.

    But I think I’m starting to get a feel. Hope so, anyway.

    Here’s the meandering tone test vid I did:

    Sounds awesome! Enjoy your new guitar man. USA Hamers, wow that brings back memories of all those Cheap Trick concerts I went to back in the day :p

    Thanks y’all!!! I’ve just about got the action dialed in “Minute Rice perfect” now. Hopefully I can make some better vids soon — need to do one with my Budda Superdrive, too. :cool:
