    After months of searching and not finding a hardtail strat on the main eCommerce sites, I decided to just go the custom built route. I'm so happy I did, exactly what I wanted, tremendous quality.

    I like a wiggle stick just fine, but I’ve never gotten along with the strat-style ones. That’s why I now have a hardtail Strat. I also have a Logan. They’re not the same guitar, more’s the pity. That is beautiful, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy my Logan T-style (ten years and counting).

    Cool! :cool::D Very classy looking. I remember when asked about the specs you ordered, you described it as "meat & potatoes," but to me that look says "classy." It's the perfect balance of complementary/contrasting hues: maple fretboard/blackguard, white appointments against that blackguard, the silvery hue. It's all good.

    I was looking in the Logan Custom Guitars club thread just last night to see if your strat-style had arrived. I hope you will post your NGD, pics and review there as well.

    I've never owned a guitar with a vibrato tailpiece, so I've never had much use for one, either. The only time I ever had access to a guitar with a vibrato tailpiece was a Hagstrom on a '60s vintage Harmony Silhouette H19. My Dad bought the guitar for me to play, but my kid brother started playing guitar as well. So even though I played it a bunch in the late '60s into the early '70s, I didn't consider it mine, and I didn't use the whammy bar much.

    You just had to go there, din'cha, Mr. Harper?

    I may not be much in many ways, but when my time has come and I’ve left this earth, nobody will ever say I missed an opportunity to crack a pecker joke.

    You should head over to the Logan Owners' Group if you're not there already.
