Anyone else have one too many and think, ( Oh Hell I'll throw out a lowball bid, It'll be outbid in a couple hours) Only to watch for a week after and nobody bids.. CONGRATS YOU WON. Well that's how I ended up with a really sweet Les Paul Classic for a very good deal. But I doubt I would have ever bid had I been sober. And as a surprise to me didn't have a mark on it.
Well I can only assume you saw the picture non blurred when drunk :laugh2:

Anyway congrats, looks nice (at least what I can make out of it).

Wasn't drunk, So I probably did it wrong. It was definitely a spontaneous purchase though. But I don't have a Strat in the collection, just Les Pauls and a Telecaster, so it'll be fun to have.

I'm calling it, "Budget Yngwie."

:laugh2:

So I'm not the best photographer. Phone is only camera. Was never supposed to be a case for not drinking. The case is for BWI , Bidding While Intoxicated.
"Cheers Judson" Enjoy the 69 one of my favorites.
Break her down and sell her for parts? The guitar or the Russian?
you know i saw the 69 the night before, it was sold for about $5k and then returned when the Buyer found a repaired neck crack , so the seller put it back up on Reverb for like $2,800 i think....so instead of jumping all over it, i made myself wait until last nite, had a few drinks, couldnt find it....i am sure it got sold....some one got a deal, sucks you cant see recent solds on Reverb once they are gone

i should never hesitate on something like that...so much for being sober...i missed a heck of a deal...im a stooopidhead.

about the pic. I guess haters gonna hate. At this point in my life everything is blurry, even with glasses On.
I kida like the ceramics for a bit of a change. Another flavor in tracks. That's what prompted me. Had been looking at these and Explorers for the pickups.
I don't know about alcohol and anything. But surely anything involving any kind of decision. Like having a beer or two when gigging, unless I have to drive. Been there, done that, wrote a song about it, and moved on to adulthood.
Quite a collection Donal.
I don't think I'll ever buy another Stratocaster, even drunk. Vintage G&L player. Only Fender I still have is a mim Strat with Calaham bridge Sperzel Locking tuners Joe Bardens on the way.
Restored a 69 SG with broken headstock. was a really nice vintage guitar original PUs and long Vibrola. But I didn't have to pay for it. My mechanic back in California gave it to me. Gave it back to him before I moved out of state.
