What did you get?!? Is that in Canadian dollars?

If you paid more than 900 for an AM std, you got ripped off.


I'd say go with a Strat. They're probably one of the most versatile guitars out there.

There are plenty of variations, especially if you go with custom parts. My Strat is built from parts, and the parts themselves add up to over $1200.

Oh I'm aware of that, hence the reason I asked.

I'm thinking my next guitar will be a Warmoth late 60's clone.

Nice. My Strat has a lot of parts from the Custom Shop, which is why the price of the parts was high.

One of my friends has a guitar built from all Warmoth parts. He has the pro Strat neck with the full scalloping, the whole works. Best neck I've ever played, bar none.

I have a '79 Strat body a basically broken neck, and I'm going to put a Warmoth neck on it. I'm thinking ebony frets, scalloping, low height frets, v-shaped neck, with white binding. I think the white binding on necks looks cool, don't often see it on a Strat either. Prices are actually about as good as genuine fender replacement necks and are probably a little better quality.

This is my guitar.

I'd post an actual picture of it, but I don't know how. The finish on the back of mine is worn alot because the previous owner always wore a leather jacket during gigs, and over time the leather rubbed against the body and took off alot of the paint. Paid around $1,100 for that one (used).

Here's the pride and joy, which I got for free believe it or not.
The Excalibur
My family doctor knew I played guitar, and said he had one just laying around, and he would rather someone get use out of it. A freakin' Gretsch Brian Sezter Hot Rod!!! I would also post a real picture of it if I knew how to. Mine is in mint condition, he also gave me the Gretsch hard case and everything.

And number three, my first guitar:
The Jag
I actually bought that one back in 93' or 94', whenever it first came out, not the re-issues from just past year. Again, thats not the actual picture, mine is a little more beat up. Think I payed around $600 for that at the time.
