    What’s your down picking bpm?

    I know there are some players who insist that certain parts ought to be all down strokes or it wont sound right. Fwiw, I say play it anyway you can.

    2007 Deluxe Strat Question

    I have a 2007 Am Deluxe. The necks during that era are not beefy. They are rather slim. Fyi. Feel great and play well but not beefy in any way.

    What exactly is a scooped sound?

    An eq pedal can help, or a different speaker. The eminence ragin cajun is not too pricy and improves mids on those amps. I used one for years with my scxd. But fenders in general sound a little scooped and its on purpose. Scooped rhythm sounds good to me. To cut thru on leads an eq, or even a...

    Buying a nice neck and saving the original would be my vote.

    What kind of case: Fender ABS Molded vs G&G Tolex/Tweed (or something else)?

    Plastic for me as well but, I only have one and about 3 or 4 random gig bags for strats and tele. My LPs have the gibson harshell cases. Have not found an affordable case for double neck. I carry it in a vinyl keyboard bag that came with it.

    Strat Plus Wilkinson nut replaced with a bone nut, has anyone ever done this?

    I had a strat plus with a roller nut. I wish I never sold it. I thought the roller nut was affecting the tone but, now Ive had more strats and realize that guitar was really great with the roller nut.

    How often do you feed your habit?

    I dunno. 2 so far this year. Sold one. I guess one or two a year but the total count seems to stay below ten.

    Are you still with the mother/father of your first child?

    When I graduated high school, I visited my sister, who lived in Greece at the time. We visited Mykonos and Hydra. I had a great time. Always wanted to go back. Thats why I brought it up to my wife. Its good to hear its still nice there.

    Eh? My point was that there are a kabillion models of strat and it impossible for most to become experts before they buy.

    Here is something you dont see every day!

    I dont go out of my way to kill them however, they set up shop in areas that we frequently use. While they are not agressive, its worrysome when I walk through a web in my flip flops on the way to my basement.

    Here is something you dont see every day!

    Yes. The webs are easily identifiable as, they are very tough compared to any web in this area. Black widows are very common around here. I kill them often.

    I guess not. Dont know anything about that. Never been musked by a garter snake. Maybe different varieties...?

    Here is something you dont see every day!

    My son found this tiny garter snake caught in a black widow web. Trying to remove the web, which is wrapped tightly, without injuring the snake is tricky.

    What is a D-style Overdrive pedal excalty..."like a for dummies" explanation

    I have a Wampler Euphoria. I havent tried any other D style pedals. Nor have I played any D style amps. It has pretty loose bass and the bass and treble are very interactive. Its reminiscent of a fender breaking up. I guess some marshalls get loose too but, Im more familiar with fender...
