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

Yikes! I couldn't do that kind of heavy any more.

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

I'm starting to remember why I haven't played that thing in years.

On the other hand, no neck dive on this one.

In reach?

97 'hog Standard, #96, 94 Daytona, Monsieur Le Cruise, Mirage, and an import goldtop P90 (my first Hamer).

Under beds, hanging elsewhere, in closets... way too much stuff.

I have a Fralin Steel Pole 43 in the bridge spot. It’s a really nice sounding fat single coil.  I was thinking about a Strat size HB, but I’m happy with this one.

It took me a long time to figure it out and "get" the magic of Strats.  The scale length and having the versatility of three pickups and those five positions...I dig it.   Now, I have too many Strats.

 

Purple Strats are cool too...

Hi Brooks. Hope the pictures shown up. Texas Toast is a small guitar company out of Denver, Colorado. They are really cool and will make whatever you can dream up. No more hearing no from Jackson and Kiesel and Jackson`s stupid Masterbuilt Charges now. I`m going with a small builder next and get exactly what I want. Thank you.

My gotos lately are:

  1. Road Worn 50s Tele (MF limited edition metallic purple)
  2. Shishkov Ultimate
  3. G&L Legacy (trans green ash, maple board)

For what I've been doing, the tele has been perfect.  It feels great, it doesn't take up much room on a stand, it already looks like crap so I don't mind banging it into tables and sh*t when I bend over to adjust settings, and it's small enough that it doesn't endanger itself - or the doorframe - when moving through the house.  🤣

Smith and Wesson 3913 Tactical, or Browning Hi-Power Mark 2.5. 

That was what we were talking about, right? 

We hit that joke early and often, lol. 

I've added, since this:
96 EBMM - Silhouette Special PDN
18 G&L ASAT 
10 EVH Wolfgang Special 

Something HAS to get sold, and the problem is that I have absolutely nothing I want to part with even a little for the first time ever. 

On the block would be the Gibby Explorer, the Jackson Fusion, the G&L ASAT, or the Fender Strat.  

The problem is the Gibby I bought in the midst of that awful spot I was in I've talked about on the outer circle.  It's a tad redundant and nothing special except it has a ton of personal meaning.  

The Jackson Soloist I picked up does everything the Fusion does, better really, and I have less money in it.  But if I have anything as sort of a museum piece, that one with its sketchy, factory airbrushed bikini girl is just so late-era hair metal.  Those things rarely show up in that shape, and just looking at it brings back a lot of good memories from the late 80s and early 90s.  

I will never own another Fender Strat as good as the one above for the $600 I paid for it.  Just isn't going to happen.   And the G&L - well, goddamnit, I want one tele.  And after putting new pickups in that one, it's damn near perfect.  What the P-90 took away in twang it nicely coughs backup for other cool stuff. 

I've had other guitars I thought I liked less than those above that I miss terribly now - my old Talladega and Charvel SoCal in particular.  I know if I sell any of those, I'll regret it a bit.  Believe it or not, I've had this many guitars before and more, but never have I had this money that I actually really enjoy playing.
