That’s where I bought my R8 from. Ady is a top bloke, can give a big thumbs up for this store

Yeah no idea. Was thinking something cheap and used but I just started watching a demo of the monologue and my wife was like "that sounds awesome, we should get one!". She never says that about guitars!

I actually have no idea what I'd do with a synth, but after hearing James' Drone Rainger at gearfest I fell down a YouTube hole and here we are.

Thanks for the suggestions, all. I sadly managed to buy a house without garage or workshop space, so tinkering is currently more trouble than it’s worth. What’s the width on the MIJ necks - my fingers are less refined and more agricultural, so I don’t think I’d want to have a neck tighter than normal. And YGM kdawg...

I’ve got the horn for a strat, but not a lot of money - what’s the best value for say under $1000? This looks like it will get me a Squier CV or a G&L tribute. There’s also Vintage V6 with Wilkinson hardware, or Yamaha for a bit less $$, and in an ideal world we would swamped by MIM strats for $600, but this doesn’t seem to be the the case.

He's been asking $6k for what feels like an eternity without so much as a nibble. Now it's $6k reserve not met; solid plan bro.

I was just going to say that. I don't really look up listings for strats, but I'm like - hasn't that guitar been on TM since I was a kid?

Shit, he's probably paid $6k worth of listing fees.

Congrats. That’s a good price. I’ve gone against all my morals by encouraging someone to buy a Strat though. 😂

And it went to Denche, expect a blue respray, a price hike, no description and shit pictures.
