    I don't really play as much as I used to. Hence my drop off in partaking in conversations here.

    When our first shelter in place happened back in March of 2020 I took my favorite Strat out of the case and left it on this stand as to I'd be at home and playing more.
    I never put it back in it's case and it's basically the only guitar I play anymore.

    That would be the twins - 2020 and 2016 Roadhouse Strats. Just recently bought both, loving the heck out of each one. I'm pretty much bouncing between the two of them from day-to-day, with the occasional other guitar making an appearance for a few songs. I did play my Epi ES339 last night for a half hour or so - that was a lot of fun.

    Thanks. It's an r7 that was relic'd for the former owner (I'm not a relic fan, but it was well done). I snatched it up at a steal of a price.
    The charvel is just sooo much fun to play. It's like a sports car of guitars. It plays really fast.
    My strat is still my desert island guitar.
    I love it.
    I have a few other cool guitars, but these 3 get most of my attention.

    Thanks. She’s still getting used to it given how long she was on a 24” scale, but she’s getting more comfortable every day. Here it is in action for anyone interested:

    Usually my Strat
    <<<<<<<<<<

    Though I do tend to just cycle through them all. I kind of make it a challenge to play my band's set list on each of them and try to get the right sounds with them. Obviously some are more suited to certain songs than others, but it's surprising how close you can get (especially allowing for the rest of the band playing at the same time).

    'Them all' being: Tele, Esquire, Les Paul Junior, SG Standard, Gretsch G5622T, Jaguar, Les Paul w/humbuckers and Les Paul w/P90s.

    I learnt that the change of neck depth/width and scale length really helps my hands and means I can keep playing rather than having to stop for a few days as I had to at one point: That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :)

    '97 Tex Mex w/ Dimarzio Chopper in the bridge. Original except the pickup & 50's tone wiring.

    I keep it tuned to standard and since I'm frequently keep songs fresh and learning new songs for the two bands I'm in I grab this one a lot.

    this week I've intentionally started to grab the Baja.....just because

    I play praise and worship every week and my second partscaster gets the job done most of the time. Bootstrap Palo Duro's do the cleans like nobody's buisiness and also push the overdrive nicely.

    For those times when I need guts of a p90 or trembucker this yammy Pacifica just cranks it.

    I'm most likely to reach for the ~2006-ish Mexi Classic 50s Esquire.

    I pretty much just play these two, somehow more time at home is meaning much less time to play guitar though. IMG_4924.JPG
