    Guitar you first really wanted when growing up

    Lots of cool stories here. For me it was a tie. When I discovered these two bands at 13 years of age I knew I wanted to play guitar. I had no money but that didn't stop me from dreaming, and went I dreamt it was of these two iconic guitars and all those beautiful sounds they made: The Edge's...

    Crazy story: a GC employee lost a sale to me because he thought a guitar was fake.

    Sounds like you didn't really want the guitar afterall. It also sounds a bit whiny to me. So you were right and they were wrong. Good on you. No need to get your panties in a twist over that.

    Which Fender Strat best matches these specs?

    Oh, awesome! I will take a look at the American Performer even if the black one it has a bridge humbucker. That can be changed, though :)

    Variax 700 vs Variax Standard

    Jazzmasters, why do you taunt me so?

    I have a Japanese Fender strat from '85 with the best neck ever. It's the one guitar I swore never to get rid of when I bought it. However, after having owned my Japanese Jazzmaster for nearly two years I almost haven't touched the strat in that same period. Even though the jazzmaster has 7 1/4...

    any experience with Eastwood?

    I have a Side Jack in white. One of the "old" ones with set neck and a stop bar tail piece. It sounds good but the build quality is horrid. The pickguard looks like it was hacked out by a seven-year-old using a bread knife. The fretboard widens suddenly in an ugly fashion where the neck joins...
