I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.

I'm sorry, but that just seemed unreasonably excessive. We all know what bubble wrap and newspaper look like.


Nevertheless, its a sweet guitar. Congrats.
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

lol yeah sorry about all the newspapers and wrapping. got a little overexcited and you know how hard it is to undress all these wrapping without time consuming
#7

Now - serial number or it didn't happen.
Also put in Strat Lovers thread too for the candy.
And is it me or does that neck look excessively bowed in? Actually I think it is that background that is playing tricks on me. he he later,

ergh you guys are so demanding lol. na the neck was set up before it left the shop. i paid them 50 bucks extra to have it set up so i dont have to do it myself once it arrive.

It's really sexy, I'm sure it sounds phenomenal on that Hughes...

I must say, I'm quite jealous. I don't own any strats, but If I did, it like to get one in that 2-tone Sunburst that you got. They look freakin awesome!

chances are your going to have to import it from japan like i did since there aren't alot of japanese strats in the states. i'm pretty sure their more popular in europe and other continent

I bet that SG does too. Congrats Kyle! Nice gear man.

Edit: I hope you saved enough money to get a proper case, gig bag =
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

decent guitar, you need to relic it up a bit. are those mids where you normally play them at? You need to boost your mids
#18
Don't relic that guitar whatever you do. Relicing guitars is just fake and stupid.

thanks! i ordered a fender tweed hardshell couple days ago. it should be here by this friday. only bad part about japanese guitar is they come with the crappiest gig bag. and here i thought my old tele gig bag was a total turd

. i was originally going to sand it down and yellow it up a bit cause i don't really like the plain maple color. but the picture the seller sent me did not do justice and it turns out the neck has alrdy gain a very good amount of aging and it certainly does vintage.

yeah i been a humbucker guy as well. went though 2 les paul and a prs before going for a strat. even though i have this awesome strat my favoritism still leaning towards my sg. but they do sound different and i just use the strat for lighter stuff and leave all the distortions for the sg

How do Japanese ' 57s compare to USs?

Ha, the guitar slowly emerging from the box reminds me of Godzilla coming out of the water.

I like it (as well as the SG and H&K).

i tried out the american 57 strat and to be honest they feel and look about the same. even the tone is very very similiar. the big difference was i paid 580usd while the american 57 is around 1.4 grand. not to mention they comes with the fugly black plastic tolex case.
#25
K, because the Japanese one ones are a third of the cost. If they sound/feel the same, I could buy Japanese.

haha yeah. i was originally gonna get a mexican deluxe player, but then i saw the reissues models from japan and i was stumped by all the great reviews and rediculous price they are. this is the best buy yet since when i got my sg for 790

Hahah... can you even see his mids?

Also, have you heard his setup? How do you know he needs to boost his mids?

To TS, that's quite a rig you got there. Very nice.

well i did find them on ebay while looking for one of these burny and and greco guitars awhile ago. luckily i was in the market for a japanese guitar so i sent them a email and ask them if they have couple reissued or vintage strats and they sent me pics and quotes on them.
