  1. Not my thing I'm afraid... Just doesn't do anything for me. That Squier 51 however... WOW!
  2. This is very true... Makes sense really, I guess!! haha
  3. Sorry about my inactivity of late, Uni's just been tests tests tests lately... :(

      I've been inactive lately too, as I'm sure most others. Not many new topics getting started, spammers like Mr Kurdt seem to have been weeded out, and I personally havent' had much to report on the guitar front...

      I'm exactly the same, what with so much work to do I've been finding it hard to even play lately let alone talk about guitars... :(

  4. Interesting that about the thumbs over thing. I do that most of the time, though I tend to switch between (obviously) depending on what shape/chord I'm playing. Am I the only person here who likes hard V necks?
  5. Well it's good to be back. Quiet round these parts now though...

      ya it is, but still good to see you man

  6. Sorry, I know this is quite an old topic, but I feel I should post this for completion When I said reissue before I was referring to the 90s Fender reissue, not the Squier Classic Vibe ones. And a slab body is exactly what you described the '65 Mustang as, i.e. the same thickness all over the body. I think the original Duo-Sonics were just a slab body. Hope that's cleared things up
  7. I think they were just slab bodies. The reissue certainly is just a slab body, so I presume the originals were too. And, no, I don't think they were offset at all
  8. Hehe I've seen that before. You know, I'm tempted to get a HM-2 just to see what all the fuss is about. I've never actually played with one and you guys are always raving about them...
  9. me too same here bought it used for 400 Get some pics up of it then 400 USD or 400 GBP? I got mine for
  10. It truly is a beauty, Rich. I'm a very jealous man. I never actually knew you had it, when did you get it?
  11. This is true, I think it was a soft V that I played. My banjo actually has a V shaped neck and it's great
  12. That thing looks clean. Love it, man, great steal
  13. Beautiful guitar!! But why oh why did you put those stickers on it?!?
  14. I've played strats with V shape necks, they're surprisingly comfy actually! In fact I'd go as far as say I prefer them the C shape ones. They're really slim and niiiice
  15. It's always a good day when someone gets a new guitar Look forward to seeing the pics!
  16. HAWT. That is an amaaazing looking guitar. I want one! And that's a steal at the price that westtex saw it at
  17. Everything else seems to pale into insignificance next to my Mustang. I love it to bits Get one, sure the pickups might be a bit crap and the tremolo will take some getting used to, but you certainly won't regret it
  18. That is a damn fine price for perfection Good purchase, if I ever saw one at that price I'd snap it up.
  19. Brilliant guitar. My mate has one, it's just awesome $230 is, what... 150 pounds? That's a bloody good price of you ask me But I guess the exchange rate's not bad at the moment
  20. The main difference between the 65 and the 69 is the contours. That the 69 has arm and belly ones and the 65 doesn't. Going by that, that there guitar is a 65. You can also tell by the tuners, which are plastic as opposed to metal, and the decal is slightly different. If you could, i'd suggest trying to get your hands on a 69RI. I much prefer the necks on them, there's something just not quite right about the 65RI necks... But maybe that's just me. However, the pickups are superior on the 65RI, the ones on the 69 are awful. As for the woods, I know the 69 is made from Basswood, Not so sure about the 65, but I think it might be the same. Anyway, I'm glad you're gonna join the club, You'll love it whatever one you decide to get
  21. I like it! I think you should go for something more crazy colour wise... Bright orange or something. I honestly think it would suit it!
  22. Good lord I want one! If the prices are decent it's gonna be hard to resist... Ok, it's maybe not as cool as the Fender, but hey, it's still hawt!
  23. Yes they look cool. But it's also true they aren't nice to play. Personally I'd go for the ORM-1 over the JK. The ORM is muuuuch nicer to play, granted there's less versatility in terms of pickups etc, but on the whole it's so much nicer. Similar looks too
