    I have fallen deeply back in love with Strats as of late, and been playing my black one a TON(by the way, the Nocturne brains are NOT just for Gretsches.....a Strat into a Brain sounds epic and has become a huge ingredient for me). So......it was time for another. I called Bobby Clark and we put something together.........he really REALLY knows how to make Strats and Teles that sound and feel like old Strats and Teles. Anyways..........we met today and hung out for awhile......and I came home with my new DR MOJO Guitars Strat!

    *Birdseye maple neck with 10" radius rosewood slab
    *Rio Grande "Muy Grande" pickups with oversize mags wound to 8k

    Enjoy your new guitar, Tony.
    I guess that you had to built an extra house to store your herd by now.
