well folks, its that time of year again.

yup, that time of year when the gear forums are innundated with a **** ton (yes, that is the technical term) of threads where people like to show off their new gear. and of course, by the same Tolkien some people like to hear about it. but this year is different. why you ask? because i said so dammit!

ok, basicly heres the reason for this thread. if you got a new guitar for christmas, hanukkah, kwanza, festivus, or any other holiday recently then this is your place to share! you cant wait to share about that awesome strat you got or that killer pointy thing, and we cant wait to hear about it. so just do it here and we can keep things a bit more orderly than usual.

basicly, any thread about something aquired over the holidays that isnt in this thread will be closed. exceptions are threads started before this one (or around the same time just to be lenient). the other exception is if you are sharing a full review of your new toy, which must include pictures and some sort of audio/video recording. otherwise, it must be in this thread.


Happy Holidays everyone, hope you love your new gear

+1 ME TOO!!!


It was kind of a Birthday/Christmas/Life present. So I cant ask for more, never! But well
what more should I ask for. (I swear I wont ever ask for anything else after I get a JCM800)

My brother and dad put a Tweed Blues Deluxe on layaway at GC for me, and paid the first $100. Should have it by late feb/early march. Should sound pretty sick with last years present, a 2005 Sage Green Metallic on rosewood (EXTREMELY rare color combo) Fender standard strat w/Texas Specials.

I have no real gear photos. Suck.

Mini review of the Straight Six, no pics yet though

So today as an XMas gift I bought a Fender FSR Straight Six guitar. "Limited" to 800 or so for small dealers. Unique anyway, and they are going for the old school Charvel feel.

SPECS:
Alder Body (3 Piece)
21 Fret Maple neck/fretboard (one piece), Rosewood skunk stripe
Vintage Tremolo
Single Atomic Humbucking Pickup
Volume Control
Three ply pickguard
Matte Black Paint

Alright...so out of the box, the guitar is nicely set up by the shop, with the trem floating. Amazingly it stays n tune nicely. Plug it in, and here we go. The guitar is very bright. I had kind of forgotten how bright guitars without a tone pot can be. Playability is pretty smooth, and the seems a bit shaved down from your standard MIM. Very smooth satin finish. to it. Fretwork is very nicely done, and the guitar plays like a champ. All hardware seems solid and does it job well. The only minor flaw is it seems like a little too much glue seeped out around the 17th or so fret. I'm sure it will come off with play, but seems a hair sloppy. FWIW, the edges of the fretboard seem to have a slight roll on them.

The body of the guitar has a top notch satin black finish. I think it is poly, but it is smooth and crisp looking. It will smudge up, but it has not turned shiny, which can happen with cheaper matte finishes. The three ply pickguard is nice touch. The humbucking pickup is bright, and has a nice mid bump. Good harmonics and smooth treble response. It's bass response is tight but will not punch a hole in the wall In terms of "hottness" it is not as hot or bright as a JB, but has more cut, clarity, and output than your normal overwound PAF.

Assembly of it is tight, with no finish flaws, misfitting parts, or poorly done screws. The skunk stripe is unnoticeable. The pickup is a nice choice for the guitar, though the sound of it is a bit of an acquired taste as it is not easily comparable to your normal Duncan or DiMarzio IMO. Overall, a very tight guitar that nicely captures the feel of an early 80s, pre-Floyd hot rod. At $399, it is a KILLER value. It does however bring up an interesting question...

WHY is this not a Charvel? This is the essence of what a Charvel is and why I bought the guitar. The only thing Fender are the hands making it and the logo. Everything Screams Charvel. No doubt that at $399 and marked Charvel, it would sell like a hot cake and appeal to the lower end market. Maybe the world is not ready for a Mexican Charvel, I don't know.

EDIT: Pics!

I got no laptop that's why

But i've heard a lot of good things about the studio and how it works well with us musicians. Tons of friendly application. I've been wanting to get one myself but probably next christmas. Here's a good demo on what it can do http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7XC-c70VyI

And btw jen, Balisongs are legal in NY, as long as you don't conceal it and you have either hunting/fishing license.


I got none, and i fish illegally

Strings are cheap crap quality but for 0,99€ per pack I don't give a sh*t. I'd rather have ton of them than just a couple good quality strings.
