    Congrats dude, that’s a nice looking Strat. And a great little setup you have there with your guitars, bass, keyboard and amps. How does that Tele sound?

    Nice one!!! Been looking at the Squier Version myself.
    Remember: drop it down a Half Step or You won’t
    get it.
    Plus it’ll play a heckuva lot better too.

    That is my first guitar that was bought 1yr 10 months ago. I seem to have a natural talent for music. I have been in school band since I was 7 or 8 yrs old.Played to high school. And was in a separate marching band too for a couple years. It was the clean tones I was getting out of that tele that caused me to buy it. Tho is has been modded since.I love the sounds that can come out of it. Gotoh Bridge, Rothstein Custom 5 Way, 7 Sound Wiring, V-Cap CuTF, TVJones Starwood Tele Neck pickup, standard bridge "noiseless" and mid "strat" pickup. Sperzel locking tuners Anodized Gold and Black, Gotoh control plate. Electrosocket Jack Mount.
    I play keyboard better guitar at the moment, but I have been at that for quite some time. I have not played with others since leaving school. I am reired and enjoying it!

    Beautiful! Which stand do you have under the Princeton Reverb? And what do you think of it.

    Aye. I started my musical interest with a $10 pawn shop Besson silver cornet. Made somewhere around 1900. I was 7-8 yrs old. This 1 I bought recently as I had sold the original and regretted it sadly. Another Besson.

    Framework stands. I would like em better if they were more stable. Also I'd like better if the amp sat a bit more upright. But that effects the stability. IThat's my opinion on em.
