Here's all my stuff. I'm 32 years old and playing guitar is my absolute passion. I mainly play at this great rocky church in Welly's called Arise. We're loud and we're proud. My two Strats are my pride and joy. The one on the right is a 1988 US '57 reissue that I've had since the end of 1996. I have star grounded the wiring for less noise, and had the fretboard flattened to a 12 - 15" conical radius. Jumbo frets have also been added. This is one of those guitars that just feels (and sounds) right, and I love it. I've tried to sell it two or three times over the years but could never bring myself to go through with it. I think it must have been repainted before I got it, because some fiesta red is showing through the candy apple.
The middle one is a recently aquired '94 American Deluxe, which I've also modified slightly. I've changed the bridge plate and block to accomodate a screw in arm because I didn't really like the pop in one (didn't look right and kept swinging around). The american standard arm I got had a white tip, so I soaked it in coffee to make it aged like the rest of the plasitcs. Worked a treat.
I also changed the mint green pickguard for the tortoise shell one, and I added an American Standard style string tree. The HSS version of the US Deluxe has no string tree, and I felt it needed one because when you played the open high 'E' you could hear a 'ping' from the headstock part of the string. It's a great guitar, very nice to play. It's my 'clean and tidy' guitar, where as my old Strat is the more 'raw' and 'organic' sounding one. They both do what they do well.
The acoustic is a Cort, very good value for money guitars! Cheap, but a nice solid top with a Fishman pickup.
The big amp is a Peavey Classic 50 4x10 which I've had for 8 years and absolutely swear by. Don't knock Peavey till you've tried one of these. I did a head to head with a Fender Blues Deluxe on purchase day and chose this. I've never regretted it. It kicks.
