Hiya, Hiya! i know this is a strat forum: i own 2, a brand new SRV and and a MIM Robert Cray. and i've got plenty to say about strats, they are easily my favorite electric guitar (and as far as i'm concerned, my SRV model is the strat perfected). i also own a mighty fine Les Paul goldtop. but 1st, i want to put a query in front of all my fellow guitar-heads: in 1974 or 75, i went into a guitar store in Shelbyville ky. the young man working there showed me a brand-new es- type gibson. the unusual thing about this guitar was that it had these tiny plastic buttons on the neck, headstock, and i think around the neck joint. the boy there told me the buttons were to make the guitar play in stereo. I've been called nuts and accused of hallucinating this, but i swear i really saw it, has anybody here ever seena gibson like that, with tiny plastic buttons on the headstock, etc?
