    Please consider supporting our forum members who make gear and parts. Even a small parts order or pedal would help them out more than buying it from a big chain retailer.

    I’ve actually cancelled a purchase or two since this happened. I have one item ordered a month ago or more that I have not cancelled but I am on the fence and might. Just haven’t made up my mind.

    You're letting it go? I thought you would hold onto it for awhile.

    yes in theory its still an american 91' fender strat. There is a dimarzio humbucker under the pkguard w a blender control. Suhr V60s w a texas special bridge pkup, and graphtec saddles, corian nut, sperzel tuners and 12g flatwounds. I wound the Suhr neck pickup when I worked at Suhr for half a month, haha.

    FWIW, any "super deal" on any big ticket item during this time, just ain't happening for me.

    Going to order a few small parts like a pot, caps, Tele neck shim, and putting a list together.

    I'm staying in just fine tuning what I have.

    I am having my 6120Jr2 completely redone, basically only the wood will be kept - everything else is being swapped out (Tarmond bridge and t-90 neck, tru arc, all chrome hardware). The mods will cost more than the guitar and now it will probably take a few months.

    I have gotten a bunch of new pedals over the last 6 months. I'll post a summary soon. Some great boring stuff like volume and eq.

    I also have a RambleFX Twin Bender fuzz and a Gretsch whatever-the-model-number-is resonator that I’m getting rid of if anybody wants to make an offer.

    There! Happy? I did my bit to pump up the economy. I didn't screw the guy over either. I think we both would agree it was a fair price. It plays pretty damn nice too! IMG_7159.jpg

    I created a separate thread for the NGD for my new orange 5420. I then promised myself, this is it!! No more!! No more NGD’s!! :D

    This purchase was for @thunder58
    Because I didn’t have to replace the jack, it took all of 3 minutes to do. 1 down, 2 more to go!

    The 20' XLR mic cable finally arrived that I ordered with my Sennheiser e609 amp mic a couple of weeks ago. I will run this from my amp into my small PA just to fill out the sound a little.
