Wow this was 3 years ago. Still have the same gear.



My girlfriend's Tele next to mine. Hers is a MIM Standard, its since been upgraded with new pups and a vintage 3 saddle bridge.

I thought they had fixed the neck angle by '54?

By the way, if anyone is looking to get rid of an old tonebender of any type or an ep3 echoplex give me a shout!

awesome. Is the '86 a reissue? I don't recall exactly what was made back then in Japan.

Early '54's still have that problem.....because of that many just avoid any with a 54 serial number so that they don't have to justify things or explain things when it comes time to resell or trade.

Would be a '57 reissue, no?

it could be. The tele was clearly labeled as a '62 RI, but the strat was not, and I know a few different models were MIJ back then.

I had an ecoplex years ago. I sold it. It was cool, but very impractical for gigging.

They are cool, aren't they? But, I found a simple little delay , a Dan-echo, replicated most of i, was much easier to use and bullit-proof. Although a vintage tube Ecoplex sure has a nice, warm tube tone.

I forgot to list what it was because I had no idea back then haha, popped off the neck and checked a bit after that post.

I'm aware of these models from that era.

57' RI
62' RI (Rosewood board)
72' RI (big ol' headstock)
Standard
Contemporary (floyd rose trem/locking tuners)

'62 in strat and tele custom.

I think there may be a '52 tele.
post #1242 of 5076
Yeah, it was just a list of MIJ strats.

But on the topic of 52 RI Teles, I never understood them. I guess I just I like rosewood boards aesthetically (can't tell the difference in tone or feel to be honest) and the feel of slim necks. The butterscotch/blackguard is kind of bleh to me too.

I don't imagine I'd want to gig with it, but it would be cool to have for recording and for fun.

1963 refin Strat just sold on eBay for £2550 and I didn't bid because I was worried about oversanded contours. Ugh.

Picked up a copy of Rocksmith after it was posted on slickdeals . I intend to use it with the PC version (where you can add custom songs) but I picked up the PS3 version since at $25, it was cheaper than buying just the cable by itself (and I've got a friend with a PS3 so with a second cable we could play together).

I haven't been motivated to pick up my strat lately so hopefully this gets it back in my hands and eases me back into playing.
