    OK, now it's super cereal! The foo "POST YOUR FREAKING GUITAR ALREADY" thread

    I'm going to start.

    Fender Starcaster (cheapo Target Fender, it's really a Squier Affinity Strat), that I modded the hell out of. It's got 12k bridge, 10k middle/neck rail pickups, 500k pots, upgraded switch...I modified the stock jack for better contact, resoldered everything, loctited the nuts on the tuners, Installed Straplocks, roller bearing string trees. It's got Fender 250L strings (set of 9s). Oh, and it's got chromed knobs with simulated mother of pearl inlay (I HAD to pimp it out, the voices wouldn't accept no for an answer). Whammy bar is not installed since I was doing some cosmetic work on it that day.

    Pignose Portable and Squier SA-10 amps. The pignose is an awesome amp....I love that thing (but amusingly I need the other one for a proper metal sound)!

    Danelectro FAB effect pedals (OD and Distortion).

    I messed around with my buddies Ibanez for a few months. From that experience I gained the knowledge that I love guitar music but hate playing guitars.

    I don't have any pics of my 1989 PRS. Here are pics of my Les Paul Studio (which I find sounds sweeter possibly than even the PRS), and my value-conscious Martin DX1 acoustic. I don't think any acoustic in its price range can touch it.







    Oh, and here's a picture of my patented guitar string stretcher, which I have yet to commercialize:

    Catatonic, why on Earth would you invest that kinda money in modding the department store strat? I am sure it was fun though. I can bet cost was not an issue, or else you could have had a nice American Standard or a suped-up Asian model for that $.

    I have to +1 this. From an economic stand point you have to sell the beater and trade up. Modding a guitar is always a lose-lose situation.

    The one exception would be upgrading the Volume pots on a Les Paul Studio or Standard to real 500k pots. Thats normalizing a "de-engineered" guitar.

    Used to have a Gibson Vee that I dabbled with. It was in the worst condition ever, and I ended up frying it and selling it. Now I want one of these:

    If it was an Ibanez Strat, those are not like my Fender...those are "Super Strats", the neck is thinner, the fingerboard is flatter, and the differnces go on and on.....normal Strats are far easier to play.

    i was playing a live opeth cd for a buddy. my friend was like, "man that prs sounds great!" half way through the show, the guitarist swtiched to his les paul, it sounded even sweeter.

    Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Capitalist Pig, the Smartass, and the Sociopath.

    It still costs less than a Mexi-strat by over a hundred bucks.

    I have around $150 in parts tied up in it (decent parts are cheap if you know where to look)...plus you can't get rail pickups stock in any Strat to my knowledge, and Fender insists on 250k pots...that is unless I want to go to their custom shop and drop huge bucks.

    Plus learning how to do all that work myself was worth the cash. In the end I now have a strat that's suitable for blues, hard rock and metal (oh, and no 60hz hum at all). Very nice tone to it, and the bridge pickup...wow, it quacks in a seriously mean way.

    Two of my acoustics. First is a Stratocoustic, custom made by luthier John Calkin. Second is a sweet National flat top, non-resonator. Both scored at local auctions.
