I'll wait until it comes in next week to post some pics. Lets just say that it's the opposite of vintage. Yes sir.

I came very close a couple weeks back. A stoopid clean sunset metallic (THINK PINK BITCHES) '87 SG Elite came on the horizon, but I stayed the course & resisted.

IIRC, I only pledged to keep my total # of guitars @ 10 or less, which I have been able to do, but I've bought 3 this year :P ...

OK, so we're past the half-way point of the challenge, and half of the contenders are out. I guess that means we're on track for no one to make it...

Looks more like a US Open. One winner at or under par.

I'm still in! ... This Strat is awesome, my only other plans are building a partsocaster tele (jazzcaster?) next year and then picking up a SG for humbucker goodness somewhere down the road.

Few things working in my favor:

I'm still really enjoying trying to learn bass [and am now shopping for a bass amp!]

Rebuilding my few remaining guitars has been a lot of fun and provided great results

(Rios + Kiz' Senior = delicious)

(Lollars + Gibby = magical, chewy, semi-hollow goodness)

(Suhr ML/ML/V60LP + VHRRI Strat = great combination [though I'll have to argue with Mr. Suhr's contention that a 0.10 μF (not the Hamer-approved 0.010 μF, but the vintage Fender 0.10!) cap is the best choice - too much signal going to ground. It actually causes a noticeable output drop!]).

I just acquired this Stratastic device:

163339cc-d6f3-475c-ba20-e66de2ff88b8_zps

The biggest temptation to the challenge so far has been that purple sparkly Cruisebass on eBay. Purple! :o Sparkly! :o eBay! <_<

Almost 3/4 of the year is gone. I'm impressed - in a positive fashion. :)

Agreed. Almost done with September, the month I bought the MCC last year. The unfortunate but understandable lack of a Chicago Hamer event this year should make October a little easier to get through. Then comes December, my birthday month.

It ain't over yet.

Birthday and Christmas... Hmmm...

But it is a "*Buy* no Guitars" challenge, so do gifts count? :)
