    The view out my family room door to the deck on the back of the house.

    Dang, I mowed my lawn yesterday...

    The guitar is "just" a Squier, but they have come a long way since the 80's. This is one of their "better" models, and I have owned several (mostly Telecasters). They are built every bit as good as (and sometimes better than) their made in Mexico Fender cousins.

    This is a vintage Modified Strat HSS. They sell new for only $249, and are a lot of guitar for that amount of coin. I got this one from a Cornell University student. It is essentially brand new never used, and with a gig bag I paid $130. I haven't had a guitar in over a year, and when I saw it for that price I had to fly right up there and get it. I brought her home and polished it, and she looks like new!

    Now, I have to order a small amp tonight... B)

  • Nice looking Strat! I'm a lefty and have the Highway One version and love it. Have you looked at the Pro Jr's? I love mine, I put a vintage Celestion speaker in it and a Deluxe transformer. It's amazing how well it sounds for 15 watts. I have used it in most every club I've played in.

    You got a very nice guitar for the money Rick. I've always loved that cherry sunburst on strats! Looks like the pickups are upgraded to SD's? :)

    Those are Duncan Designed. There's a big difference in them in my opinion and experience. Nice looking guitar Rick! If you are into guitars with locking tremolo's (ala Floyd Rose, Kahler Spyder) let me know. Perhaps we can do some trading. I sure like that Marantz of yours.

    and add in film vs. digital bodies, and it's like Bergman or something...

    actually, it's about the same level of irony as writing about how a hifi sounds.

    Congrats Rick! The Low Rider is one of the nicest in the line up these days IMO. The muffler needs to be chunked and a Thunderheader in its placed. I suppose the factory muffler has a cat inside.
