Yeah, yeah, YAY-uh!

Different thread, haha, but that was the joke.  Here's a very long story, but what inspired that thread title: My Dad was a C-141 pilot for the Mississippi ANG.  According to my Dad, flight crews w

After playing for over 35 years, I recently realized that I love Strats. Really enjoying this one.

Recently in use:

2019 Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster

2006 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass fretless

2013 Fender Stratocaster "Partscaster", built from Fender replacement parts, Am. Std. body, Am. Special neck, Fender/Floyd Rose locking trem, Fender Twinhead/Dimarzio Chopper pickups

I don't play a lot while I am at home, but when I play, I use one of these. The Acoustasonic is fun to use, though I still have to get used to the string gauge (11 set), the bass is nice for trying jazzier stuff, the Strat too. The Hamers rest in the case in the moment.

Looks like you’d need a tetanus shot after playing that Strat, Brooks.  I love it!

Ha! Whatup Jack! 

Typically I kinda look down my nose at relics (I even considered replacing the body), but this thing just plays and sounds so great that I don't want to mess w/ it (plus its so over the top that it looks like a Jackson Pollack painting, so yeah its grown on me).

Yes, most shops were waiting for them to arrive when I got mine, found it at Musik Produktiv in Ibbenbueren. I think they are now available elsewhere too. Since then, Fender also does an Acoustasonic Strat. I listened to some clips when they used the electric sound and it sounded good. But I use it as an acoustic only.

This is my home gamer rig.  The Tele is recent but my main guitars are the Tele, Manson DR-1, Gibson R0, Sadowsky Will Lee, Fender CS Geddy Lee, Spector NS2 Doug Wimbish and Fender WW10 strat. A mix of E & Eb tuned instruments. The Manson has a sustainer so its great for feedback & sustain effects in madison square bedroom. The Spector cops all the Tool sounds and anything with massive bass distortion. The Geddy is very special.  Jason Smith cloned Geddy's touring bass, the one with the body from 72. FCS teambuilt copies from that bass. Sounds exactly as you'd expect. If I'm playing on someone else's recording, they usually want the Sadowsky. Much more polite than the others and it just seems to sit nicely in almost any track. Much less finicky to record too just direct thru a purple compressor. During this lockdown the Hamers are coming back out.  They all need new strings and setups since I've been on this ride.

I've been considering paring this down when life gets a bit less strange. For the guitars, keeping the Strat, an acoustic, and either the Hamer or PRS.  On the other hand I've wanted a 335-ish semi-hollow for a long time, so I might add another instead.

@MCChris Don't let Chaz Bronson see it, is all I'm saying

 

Man, Bronson's movies had some of the better comedy of the 80s action flicks.  Murphy's Law is a good one, along with, what was it Death Wish 58?

@kizanski - A white LP custom is one of a handful of bucket list guitars I have left.
 

I’d love to have the G&L ASAT I had a few years ago back, and I also want to get a Super C eventually.  That’s pretty’s much it as far as dream guitars.

Pretty cool.  How heavy is it?  Is it full thickness?  

Yes, standard tele body using 1 mm steel sheets (1/25 ' if that makes any sense). Weights 11 lb, heavy but still usable.
