    I own two Mcinturff Royals ...a 2 and 3 pickup version....semi hollow, port hole style guitars. They have a huge growl to them....very bluesy, smokey sounding...but its my cup of tea and my fav.

    Your First Guitar...Your Latest Guitar

    My first electric was a Japanese strat style electric sometime around 1966. I cannot remember the name of it but it did play quite well. My lastest guitar is a Fender USA made ash body strat with texas specials in blonde with maple neck.

    Carvin... Am I missing something?

    I have owned a few of their guitars. They were O.K. but not quite what I was looking for, and they didn't fit my style that well. On the other hand, I'm a big fan of the Carvin vintage amps, as in the Belaire, and Nomad. I've owned and gigged with Carvin vintage for over 13 years now.

    Fender American Special Ash Strat

    Anyone own or tried one of the Fender American Special Ash strats? Its on my list of guitars to get. I like the idea its an ash body with the tex mex pickups, and it has to have a maple board. LS

    Is this Fender Japan Strat authentic?

    I had a new Fender strat from that year that was made in Japan but it is diff. than the Fender strats that you order from Japan. Should be a "made in japan" or " crafted in japan". Mine played and sound real good. Personally, I liked the bass body, it was light and resonant. I also had a 62...

    Hamer Daytona vs. G&L Legacy (or S-500)

    Well, I have had a few Legacys and I thought they sounded very strat like, but yes a bit bigger sounding. I think the S-500 is even more kick-ass, and the F-100 (if you find a good one) is even more kick-ass. I have owned all three of the guitars more than once. I own a 84 F-100 as of now...

    I'm a sucker for cheap Strat!

    I bought a new MIM strat about a year ago. Its the newer version with bigger frets and bigger block. I have to tell ya, they have come a long way. Its a great strat, does everything a strat should do. SG

    Best Strat you ever heard in your life?

    The best strat tone I have ever heard is on SRV "Live At Daytona Beach", I'm Never Going To Give Up On Love. If you get a chance take a listen to it. SRV was playing the tan/whiteish 63 strat. SG

    Let's see how good you really are! (POLL)

    It looks like a strat, walks like a strat and hopefully talks like a strat. I'll go with custom shop fender strat. SG

    New American Standard Strat, Is it really better?

    I believe the whole body is alder, though I'm not sure of how many pieces, instead of poplar. SG

    New American Standard Strat, Is it really better?

    I can't speak for the American Series, but they also revamped the MIM series, "bigger frets, bigger block, alder body". IMO, they are much better than the older MIMs. I bought one. SG

    Peavey T-60 Porn....

    I've owned around 5 of them. My fav. one was one with a rosewood r/b. They are great guitars. The only thing I wasn't greatly fond of was the very thin neck and smallish frets. SG

    Vintage-savvy G&L folks

    I am quite sure that its poly and it can check. I have owned a nat . f-100 that looked just like the one pictured. Mine was all original and there were a few check marks on the finish. I sold it to a fellow musician and he refinished it in red. SG

    MIM Strat question

    I paid $399 for a brand new MIM (new version w/bigger block/frets etc). I love it. Plays and sounds great........NO tuning problems at all. I also own a Fender 60 time machine custom shop in which I feel the MIM is very compariable with in playability and tone. SG
