My Dad, who is a fantastic trumpet player, plays a bit of sax and is truly a great singer; bought this American Strat Plus for me in 1993, for my 14th birthday. Caribbean mist is the color. I wish I had as much talent as he does but Ive been playing since then and play twice per week in church. This is my main go to Guitar.

I have one. I bought it for it's looks (I like strange/unusual stuff) and because I was wishing I had never sold my Parker Fly (piezo pickup also) Mine has been reworked with dual split humbuckers and rewired to allow splitting and changing the phase on both (2 additional switches added) I had it setup by a well renowned Luthier (McBlane in Preble NY) and it's a wonderful instrument to play. Very flexible, warm and after the setup/fret job it's like butt-ah. Don't think you're going to play it unplugged and get any real sound out of it. The F holes are for show.

I have so many guitars that this one ends up as sculpture rather than being played so I'm considering selling it. PM me if you're interested.

I have a Schecter C1 Hellraiser - the quality is excellent for the price they get for those. Has a great action, nice hardware, and is a thing of beauty.
Not a SH, but the active EMG's and coil tapping makes it a very versatile guitar.
Popular with the shredders for sure, but as a dyed in the wool blues guy it works well for me.

I prefer my MIJ JD Tele though, and I will sell or trade the C1 and pick up something that needs me more

That's my problem as well. I keep the Strat on a stand right next to my chair, so I pick it up and noodle around on it often, but until this past week, I haven't made the effort to learn anything new in years.

The girls never complain, but I've made a running joke of me playing the same six or eight songs ad nauseam.



Guess what I do for a living?

Nope, store-bought. Similar item on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Metal-Pickgu...-/150887299744

Mine actually looks better than my photos show. I guess the flash brings out all the minute scratches and imperfections.

Sounds like my house....I only play what I know...but this program/game...whatever has really made me move on and learn new things....and learn that man I suck.

I thought I could play because the few things that I can play I play REAL WELL....but that is all I did. Now I am finding my fingers getting sore again, and moving all over the neck into shapes I am not use to....really is making me re-learn fingering again.

One thing I will say is that when you start the game it wants you to pick lead or rhythm....if you get tired of one try another. Also if you have more then one guitar if you come across a section your guitar does not like I just move to a different one. The game does not seem to like one of mine that has P90's in it.

I just got a 2014 SGJ to get back into electric and love it. I've been playing Rocksmith too and I'm amazed at how few songs I've heard before

Congrats! I too got Rocksmith. I wanted to see what it was like. I still have yet to install it.
