    Heheh For sure would not drop a totally hot fashion model over a broken nail but.......... If I paid $200 for my hot model to get her nails done & she came out of that nail shop with a broken nail that the shop broke & refused to fix/refund the nail job? I might be on a hot models nail...

    Is this the best strat tone ever recorded?

    There is no best as too many exist :) All the old greats for sure... This would actually be considered recent even though it was 1994 Think it was a 57RI thru a Matchless

    Anyone other than Tyler do Shmear finishes?

    Hey not that it matters but none should feel bad about doing a smeared type finish. It is not like they have not been around for years & years... Anyone remember the Fender Bowling ball aka: Marble finishes?
