If I’m being candid, GAS has been a constant (and not just due to my celiac and lactose issues). Have cool guitars that sound good and play well. But always scrolling for sites and flipping. Then in a complicated story (bought an amazing EJ Strat, went to pick it up. Hated it. The absurdity of my condition welled up. Grabbed a stock Charvel off the rack. Instantly clicked and walked off with it instead.). This guy. First guitar I’ve owned since knowing you could change things where I literally wanted to change - nothing. Ok. That’s a stretch. I did add a treble bleed and a tremstopper because country/pedal steel bends are important to me. But other than that, no screwing around with bridges or nuts or tuners or trem or swapping pickups or switching options. Nada. It just worked for me. Sounded like I want. Played like I want. At rehearsal every crazy idea that popped into my head came out the guitar. Parts I wrote that were sometimes hard to execute came out clean and EZ. Band LOVED the sounds and how they slotted in the mix. I have been eying the HM Strat reissue but the Floyd has been putting me off. Mint one at 7.2 lb showed up at my local shop. Strummed it. Rang like a bell. Bought it. Same thing. Here she is. No need to even consider mods. Ok, other than the treble bleed and tremstop). And again it just does what I want and sounds like I want. Everything is “wrong” about these guitars based on what I “knew” I needed. Neck, radius, pickups. Etc. But I noticed after a few weeks that the gnawing voice was ... quiet. I’d reflexively check my fave shops and sites online and click some links out of habit. But had no interest. And no active “need” to look like before. Nor any desire to buy. Weird. Cleared out some AMAZING guitars to pick these up and ended up with a really nice pile of cash. At first it kinda hurt to let go of them but I was finally able to admit they sat more than they got played because while I loved them in concept, they didn’t really click for me. Anyway, long post. Really only to say: it’s great. I like that quiet and to just have my guitars be what they are. Tools to allow me to express myself. And have fun. Finally have the right ones. And how strange. Without a transaction gone sideways I would NEVER have picked one up in the first place! Fate, I guess.
