    Who plays Swamp Ash Strat?

    Love the pickguard. More Strats/Teles should have brown pickguards, especially those with sunburst/natural finished bodies.

    Who plays Swamp Ash Strat?

    Have had this 1979 ash since the mid 1980s. It was originally sunburst. Stripped the thick poly down to bare wood, corrected the body carves (late 70s were rather shallow carves), and refinished it in lacquer. In the process I shaved over a pound of weight off, now weighs around 8lbs-3ozs. Kept...

    Cort vintage Flying V with preamp

    The original humbuckers are a little on the cheap side construction-wise. They are decent in sound and power though, enough so that I put them back in my V (after I replaced the anemic lead wires).

    Cort vintage Flying V with preamp

    I have a blue one from the same time period. Didn't care for the electronics, so I reworked everything from scratch: pots, switch, wiring. At first I had a set of DeArmond Goldtones in it, and later reinstalled the originals (w/new lead wires). Also used shielding paint in all the cavities...

    Billion Dollar Babies

    It was/is "Alice Cooper Complete", and I still have it. Bought it in '73 around the time BDB came out, and it covered most of their previous albums (except the first 2). The cover is long gone. Bought some Mel Bay chord books around the same time, which I still have (where I learned my 3 chords...

    USPS "Lost" my guitar sold on Ebay

    I was pissed a few years ago when they lost my case candy (Tele Am.Std accessory pack). I just know some Tele aficionado postal worker pilfered it en route and has it in damn case!!! Man, I'd really be inconsolably livid it they lost my guitar. BTW, that's a nice red sparkle ( I have a 70s blue).

    Billion Dollar Babies

    I had all their 8-tracks at the time (c.'72/'73). Bought BDB as soon as it hit the stores. Loved the original line-up. They may have been the influence for me to take up guitar (and a friend who showed me a couple of Cooper riffs). I remember Muscle of Love seemed to be lacking the excitement of...

    What are your thoughts on the Gretsch Penguin?

    Your favorite strat or S style guitar?

    As mentioned previously in this thread (now have pics), my favorite Strat would be this 1979 Strat hardtail that I've had since the mid-'80s. It was originally sunburst that I stripped down to bare wood and refinished in white lacquer years ago. Original p/ups and electronics. I changed the p/up...

    Congrats. I was looking at Cort on Reverb today and saw a few of these (reds and blacks). Not many for sale in the states. Nice looking guitars.
