Are you a lefty? I didn’t know that if so
Those strats and this gibson are gorgeous!
Jazz bass gets an honorable mention
PLEASE! Show us the back of its neck, I have a unhealthy obsession with neck wear
I don’t know how it happened with a poly finish but it looks like it’s got curly cable rash on it’s lower bout or it was put on a stove
I can't show you anything because I don't abuse my guitars.
Well used, never abused.
Even though this one does not look like it's abused, it has been my workhorse for over 4 years, and has got plenty of personality.
yes i am ,its been a challenge to get viable instruments that I like
Are you the member with the multiple loaded pickguards for your strat?
That sunburst strat hanging on the wall looks familiar
Not abused, but played with love - my '52 AVRI is showing some wear, not very noticeable unless you look from up close. One of the best sounding guitars I have (I had it refretted 2 years ago).
Any neck wear yet? I’m curious how these a.v’s are wearing
I have a 65 jazzmaster neck where the finish is actually wearing like an old fender
Naaah - it's just mom and grand-dad arguing again . . .
yes, thats my 78 american that weighs in at 12lbs
It’s bad enough that they don’t make as many and then They have to go ahead and make the custom ordered? lefty out of a 12 pound slab
look at how thick the body is plus there is no elbow cut , it was designed to compete with les pauls of the day , you know the heavier the more sustain, ( yeah that never happened)
but for 40 years old she sure is purdy
It's strangely beautiful. I hope you don't change it.
No worries, it's staying the way it is.
Here's my Dean Playmate Avalanche that I got for $10 on Craigslist from a mom who just wanted it out of her kid's closet. I leveled/crowned/polished the frets, replaced the saddles with GFS stainless saddles, replaced the tuners with some Grovers that came off a Schecter, installed a tusq nut, and dropped in a used SD Custom 5 and a takeoff Duncan Designed single coil. First attempt at building a pickguard so it's rough.
I relocated the volume knob because the normal strat position doesn't work with my terrible right hand technique. The 2nd tone knob is actually a bass cut and it is necessary on this guitar. It is really low-frequency heavy for some reason and that bass cut cleans it up a lot.
No name strat.....I played this thing for years.
The duct tape residue has hardened and fused into the guitar... I don't think it's coming off.
Believe it or not....the neck is in pretty good shape...but the frets....well...not so much
Notice the paper stuffed under the low E in the nut.....I did that in.....85 -87 ??? Been there ever since.
For all the abuse this thing took.....not one serious finish crack. Crazy. Nicotine is probably holding some of the parts together.
