I randomly went to Guitar Center today and was looking around. Low and behold they had a massive clearance of guitars going on. I found a Fender 70's Classic Strat for $310! They're regular $669! It's an Olympic White with Maple Fretboard...and they're going to set it up with 10's for me.


Seriously, I could NOT pass this up! Such an insaannneee deal. Throw some Woodstock Fralin's in there, and I'll be Jimi! (Yeah right...)


I used to have this same EXACT guitar except it was Natural with a rosewood fretboard...

Pics.

I almost considered buying a 57 RI Japanese Strat yesterday, it looked so beautiful just hanging there.
I didn't though, that would have bankrupted me.

Don't tell them? Just wait 'till they see it, which if you're in luck they might not do....

Yeah, the thing is my parents won't notice for probably a few days. I'm always in my room...so they won't even notice probably. Still when my mom finds out...

I honestly only have one friend who plays guitar...and my parents would never buy that, haha. But at this point I'm so excited I don't really care what they do.

God dammit that's a good ****in deal.



I know...I'm still wondering if they made a mistake on the tag or something. But the guy gave me the receipt for it and everything and sold it to me for what the tag said. They're going to set it up today and I'll pay for it in full and pick it up tomorrow.

Want Hendrix style pups? Check out the Red Houses:

I find it funny theyre called Red House though, considering Hendrix used the V for that song...

Anyway looks sweet, i played a Classic 70's one through a Blues Jr. and it was awesome!

The best I've seen is a MIM Strat, mint, used for 350. And I thought that was good.

I ordered a set of the Mojo V. I'll tell ya, you'll pay about $40 more than you would for Fenders, but the deal you get from this guy is priceless. You talk to him about your gear, what kind of sound you're looking for, etc. - for mine, I used his clips as an example, told him what I was looking to play, about my amp and guitar - and then he custom winds them for you. It takes about 6 weeks. Then, after he sends them to you, you can try them out for like a week, and if you don't like them, send them back for a free rewind. If you don't like them after the rewind, you can get a full refund. The cool thing about the ones he's making for me is that it's a version he's never tried before, so he asked me for sound clips. Heh.

SD pickups are pretty damn good. $265 for the red house set really isnt that expensive when most fender pickups are near 200. Kinmans are over 300 and I dk how much fralins are. A white strat with the red house pickups is one of the things im GASing for haha.

O, Dirk, when the heck are you getting these pickups. I've been hearing you talk about them for some time and I cant wait to hear them. I'm sure you are anxious too.

Ehh...I'm getting anxious now. I ordered them just after Christmas, so it's been about a month. I should have them in the next 2 weeks. If not, I'm going to send him a gently prodding email.

Haha gently prodding, good word choice. so what exactly did you have him do to your set of pickups. when i ordered my mojo set i had him keep the neck standard, had him make the middle a bit hotter and got him to wind the bridge to tall texan bridge specs or there abouts. now i just need to get my tone knob to control the bridge pickup as well as the middle so that i can get some pretty unique sounds.when i was playing an EJ strat i liked rolling off some of the tone on the bridge and playing with both middle and bridge pickups. If i can get the mod done to my guitar I'm gunna experiment using all 3 pickups at same time since i got the little s-1 like button. By the way, what guitar are you gunna stick you SDs in?
