    1983 Fender '57RI and 1998-ish Fender MIM Roland-Ready Strat. In 2018, I had the '57RI's fretboard re-planed to a flatter, more modern profile, which makes it much easier to play. During my college band days in the 1980s, it was one of my favorite guitars (and yes, the maple neck and black body were a tip of the hat to Eric Clapton's "Blackie" Stratocaster). The Roland-Ready Strat I use with my Roland VG-88 and VG-99 guitar modeling rigs:

    Fantastic collection and all that. But I really am curious -- how the heck did you get that picture? No stands present, how'd you get seven guitars vertical, to lean that way and not fall like dominoes?

    as long as a Strat is leaning against a wall, which they all are here, they will stay put just as pictured.
    Just don't breathe on them :lol:

    I guess I have to believe you. I try to pose my guitars in various ways but it always comes down to being placed in a stand.

    Here's one I leaned against an amp, no stand. Believe me I was shaking in fear as I took this photo. I could see that guitar sliding to the left or right and becoming a relic the old fashioned way.

    This is all hard to believe.

    Believe it or not, next time I take my Strat out it will not be to play a song. Rather, I am going to lean it left or lean it right and see if what you are doing to yours is real and not Photoshopped.
