    Changing it up a bit: 50’s Standard Tobacco Burst

    Not for me personally, I love the cream plastics and gold top hats as it was.

    How many pounds would you consider *heavy* for a stratocaster?

    I don't like a Strat to be over 7.5lb personally. The half a pound between that and 8lb is really noticeable IMO.

    Is this really a 1993 Stratocaster? Please help.

    Looks perfectly fine to me. Not sure on the case though, is it original? When did Fender stop the moulded cases?

    Opinion on this Fiesta Red 1987 Strat ?

    That American Standard is over a grand! A lot of money for that IMO. Plenty of used AM Stds available for a lot less. You can buy the modern version (American Pro) for the same price as that second hand Standard.

    Quality of the Juniors and Specials compared to Les Paul Standard

    Prompted by your post I did just have a look at the original collection, they look lovely and at £1300 that is not too far short of a Standard over here so obviously a high quality model. TBH I was referring to the run of the mill older models, especially the faded versions. I'd love a DC...

    Quality of the Juniors and Specials compared to Les Paul Standard

    I don't think the ordinary Specials and Juniors are quite the same quality as Standards. Most Standards are one or maybe two piece bodies whereas the Juniors/Specials are often three piece. Of course the binding on Standards does tend to make those models look far more expensive but although I...

    Love that new Seafoam. They have certainly brought out some nice colours with the Vintera range.

    fender vintera

    Not a fan so far. The new Vintera line replaces the old Classic and Classic players series (great guitars) for something almost identical for quite a bit more money.

    Jack the Ripper Identified?

    There's a lot of theories - but nobody is going to find out now.

    You look like you're military

    Of course not. There has been no conscription in the UK since 1960. Conscription was still going much later in the US, as per the Vietnam war.

    You look like you're military

    I'm a Brit but I honestly don't understand that sort of stuff either TBH. Over here nobody ever thanks anybody for their service or asks if somebody is ex or current Mil because they all look the same as the rest of us. I agree about your boss, it's easy to say that stuff but actually doing...

    Memorabilia Thread - Tobacco tins this time - Pic Heavy

    Great seeing all this old memorabilia. I've got a few old metal cigarette tins that I got along with my hobby of collecting pre-war cigarette cards, especially cheesecake film star/showgirls of the 1930's pics.

    Picking up a R8 Gibson Les Paul tomorrow

    I thought all along you would leave it to be honest. Reading what you wrote about "self control" etc etc on the Strat forum made me pretty sure you would not go through with the deal.
