Personally, I am currently coveting a maple neck HSS Strat.  But, alas, it will have to wait (but not forever!)

Re: New Guitar!

Sorry I'm so incredibly late posting the pics. After two months I finally got around to taking the pics and they're not even great quality. Well, it's the story of my life! I'm never on time and I think 2 months is my record.
Well anywho here's my baby:

Re: New Guitar!

Don't just talk about it, play it until your fingers hurt, that's what I'm doing. I just picked up a new acoustic (see acoustic section under the guild post). Congrats.

Bootlegger guitars.
