mmm that sounds like its totally worth a try. nice taste =]

^^for Dr. No, i knew it was some beautiful neck. its gorgeous. how much was it all?
im thinkin' of getting a birdseye maple neck from warmoth or sumtin... add a decal maybe =]

Yeah that guitar is pretty much THE SEX. Not meaning to brag or anything. Unfortunatly my amp is a Behringer GMX 212 which does not even come remotely close to doing that clapton strat justice.

I love strats. I started out on one that my uncle let me borrow until I had the money to buy my own electric. It was an '89 MIK strat with discontinued Bill Lawrence pickups. It was insanely nice, and I set it up and it played great. I was pretty sad when I had to give it back to him after getting my Schecter. A few months down the road after I returned it, I found an MIM Splatter Strat used in Guitar Center for $200, and I couldn't pass up the offer. I put a Hot Rail in the neck, and I like it a lot. Its not as good as the MIK strat, but its still nice.



The MIK is the second one from the left.



And theres the Splatter Strat.

My 1st electric was a MIJ squier that I loved. Didn't know they sucked until much later.

Anyways, I have a Yngwie strat. I'll post pix later, but it's the vintage white w/ maple fretboard. It's awesome.

If that isn't a typo... MIJ Squiers ae great quality guitars, not like the korean/chinese ones made now. MIJ Squiers certainly do NOT suck.

If Fender made a model of Rory Gallagher's Strat, I'd sell my parents to get it



And the rest of Rory's collection!

He doesn't use maple exclusively really. On Strats yes (never seen him play a Rosewood necked Strat ever), but he has used a LOT of rosewood fingerboards in the past. Also, that EC Signature that guy has is a very rare one, as it has the rosewood neck rather than the maple one.

And you other people who were oggling at Dr.No's Strat, it's a Lite Ash Strat. Made in Korea, but despite that it is VERY good for the price - ash body, birdseye maple neck w/abalone inlays, Seymour Duncan Alnico Pros as standard. He's changed the black pickguard for a tortoise shell one though.
