    Fender American Professional Stratocaster Thoughts

    I’ve owned many American Standard Strats and I must say that I like the pro neck better. Never liked the first mod pups the proII pups sound better to my ears in videos at least. The neck was a great improvement IMO

    Is there anything you aspire to, musically?

    I’m at peace with what I can do on guitar and with everything I can’t but of course I still work to improve myself.

    AV series 2012-17.. best reissues ever?

    I loved my av59 but as far as a tool for a working musician my 59 could do the job but nothing super special. It had a 3 piece body. I scored a set of CS pups handwired for that guitar and that changed the whole thing and put the guitar in a different ballpark. I refretted the guitar with...

    AV series 2012-17.. best reissues ever?

    I had a ‘59 and used to play a ‘56 from a friend all the time. Great guitars but I tried one of the new ‘61 in fiesta red and don’t see any difference to me is really close to the ‘59

    NGD (Standard Strat)

    Hey guys! Yesterday I got a new MIM standard strat from 2016. This is the third black strat in a row for me! I needed a maple board strat in my arsenal since I changed my beloved MIA standard recently and other guitars in other to get CS. Crime and theft rates are really high in my country so I...

    Sweetwater GT11 Stratocaster

    Do you have the chance to try a few more of the same model? One of them should stand out! I’ve been checking out those models and the specs look good to me!

    IF you were going Custom Shop...

    That’s true to some extend in my experience. I’ve had many CS that are in the same league than AV. Usually the not the distressed CS NOS or closet classics are like that, after trying them I asked myself if they are worth the extra money. Usually the low tier CS fall has n this category in my...

    IF you were going Custom Shop...

    Teambuilt or regular custom shop. The masterbuilt is nice but nothing out of the league of the other custom shops, usually is only cosmetic details.

    Help me out with this Japanese squier!

    South America is tough man, high theft rates so there’s some situations that I would like to avoid bringing the most expensive stuff. Not saying that the CS is going to be a closet queen, I’m still gigging and taking it to some rehearsals in the safe neighborhoods but I need another strat to...

    Help me out with this Japanese squier!

    We use US dollars as an official currency (really long story lol) we have more inflation but US asking prices always serve me as a starting points (specially in the used market). A CV sells here for around $600.

    Help me out with this Japanese squier!

    I recently bought a Custom shop 63 reissue strat and I’m currently looking for a cheaper model to hang around rehearsals and some gigs. I have a friend who is also a guitar dealer that is offering this late 80’s squier strat. He is selling it around $500/600. Is this a good model? Is the price...

    Can We Ban All Talk of PRS "Silver Sky's" In 2023?

    I don’t own any silver sky but like the ones I’ve tried and also enjoyed threads about them so I’ll be against banning them! :)

    Could we be entering a "bad era" for Fender products?

    Check out Top 20 most sold guitars on reverb and you’ll see fender and squier taking almost 75% of the market. I know not everybody buys at reverb but I’m sure this is a trend everywhere and I doubt this would happen if fender is seriously dropping the bal in QC. Fender is stronger than ever...

    Question on American vintage 2 strat neck

    I understand that silver sky now comes in a slimmer profile (I think they did this the last couple of years). I tried both. The first ones were similar to '57 profiles I've tried from custom shop, chunky in my opinion but I like those profiles. A couple of weeks ago a student brought one of the...
