    ...A strat that feels like a superstrat, charveljacksonish...
    Nice neck, clear wood.
    The only thing I will change is the crappy trem arm and its base. Schaller trem bars are so much better. The trem block looks cheap too. Floyd Rose Special are not the best ...
    Cool guitar I’ve found at a correct price. Fender HM prices vary a lot on the net. Weird.
    When I think about yellow guitars, Frank Gambale comes to my mind. Bruce Kulick had a yellow ESP. Who else did play a yellow guitar?

    Nice. Nearly got a blue one last year but got a good deal on a used Jackson USA Adrian Smith.

    What did you pick it up for?

    That looks like a for real shredder. Is the toggle switch a coil tap?

    Well, I just got one from the 80’s yesterday. It’s Ice Blue with a maple board and I also have a white reissue HM Strat. I think you will love it. Here’s a couple of pics of mine. HNGD! B7B35AFD-E11C-4C27-94C7-5340A49E9A33.jpeg 3A799E29-6DEC-45BE-B319-FDEC64E3CC17.jpeg

    Dude, I turn several shades of green every time I see that guitar - looks just like the yellow strat that Beck played that got me into strats to begin with:

    Well consider that Fender Owns JAckson and Charvel not hard to port to a Fender brand, but id still go either Jackson or Charvel myself

    It's one of the few mags that I have still in one piece - I used to have stacks of guitar magazines (that's where you learned stuff from before the internet,) but I eventually went through and cut out all the articles or song sheets that I wanted to keep to make room - the mags that had special meaning to me I kept intact.

    I have a couple of hundred GFTPM, GW, GP from the 80s and 90s.

    What a great time it was to be into the guitar!

    A lot of them are in mint, unread condition.

    I keep forgetting to list and sell them.

    ...maybe that's where my 'vintage fender amp' money will come from
