nobody said you were ridiculous buddy. Lighten up. its almost the weekend.
Perfectly uplit! Just wanted to know if there was something I needed to know about the way i was presenting my own preposterous yet adorable nature that would make me smile wider. Hoping you all have a great weekend!
thoughts on this?
i wish i had enough knowledge to spout off my opinion. alas, i would be pulling it out of my ass. im just not well versed on fenders.
I guess i was more thinking of pocketsquareguy.
that'd be a fun project guitar. To start, I'd just strip one of my CS Relics of the parts and stick it on the body. Next, I'd look at a '60's neck (this would be the expensive part, I'm guessing $5K for a solid example). Maybe an original pick guard and bridge setup, and I'd have a fun player strat. Wouldn't look to unload for a profit or anything, solely for my enjoyment.
Even '63 refins are easily in the $8-10K range, and the cheaper you get the more dodgy the guitar (questionable electronics, full neck refins, etc.). I wouldn't be set to drop 5 digits on a guitar for a few more years, but by then I'm guessing the market will be much more up so I wouldn't be able to get anything anyways.
i assumed but was just being a douche.
projects like this would be so much fun. wish i had the balls and the dough to do one.
It was easier to justify when we were all taking lessons and practicing together. Now, not happening, although I still pick it up here and there to remind myself how little skill I have.
Real life has been intruding on guitar life way too much lately.
There is nothing about this body that guarantees that it is original. The quality of fake Tele and Strats, and Tele and Strat parts, is at an all time high. Why not just go to the Dallas Guitar Show and get the absolute best CS or Relic that you can find. I wouldn't touch a vintage Tele or Start without knowing the provenance. Why have a $5K> parts guitar? You don't know how it will play or sound, until after it is put together will you? If you don't like it, what will you do?
Sorry in advance for the non-electric posting - these are my guitars:
Ron Spillers Harp Guitar (Dyer style)
Martin OMC-28 LJ
Kevin Ryan Cathedral
Gerry, beautiful instruments. What style of music do you play?
this was my big concern, and of course this post doesn't help (and probably rightly so).
I have some awesome CS and relics, that's all. Even an old tele that I don't bring to NYC due to its value. I'd just love an old player strat but can't stomach the full price
will keep looking regardless.
I did a quick search on some of the Japan made Fender re-issues from the 80's, and some of these things are going for $1200-1800.
Maybe 3 years ago I picked up an '83 mij Tele Custom RI for roughly $300. It had been played heavily and had plenty of knicks, dings, and weatherchecking to prove it. Looked like more of a relic than my $4K CS Relic, and more importantly it played great. The prices these days amaze me.
'76 4-input Hiwatt DR103 on its way to me...
Thank you. I play solo-acoustic guitar - a mixture of jazz, folk, blues, swing, country. Mostly instrumental arrangements but sometimes to back myself up while I sing.
