    Been looking for a few weeks now, waiting for a good deal to come along. Local guy was selling this originally for $450. After going back and forth for a few days, I got it for $375. It's a MIM, 2009 model. Came with the strap and soft shell case. Also has a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound pickup...

    Okay, so today I went out and picked up a Fender Full Moon distortion pedal to use on the clean channel of my 6505+. Now, why would I use a distortion pedal with an amazing amp such as the 6505+? Simple. The 6505+, to my ears at least, doesn't get as buzzy or as nasty as I'd like for old school...

    Got money burning a hole in my pocket. Just got a LTD V, which I love, but I also want a Tele. Trying to keep at $500 and under if possible. Fender MIM, ESP LTD or something similar. You need cash, and I got it!

    Dingwall ABI 5 For sale is a Dingwall Afterburner I 5-string with wenge neck and Darkglass preamp in Ferrari Yellow. Not going to lie, won't be too sad if this doesn't sell. 34-37" scale. One of the best necks I've had on a bass; it plays and sounds absolutely incredible and the preamp and...

    Ive been hankering to do a Strat build for a while and this popped up for sale for dirt cheap so no better time than now I guess. It had obviously been sitting around for a while, the action was a mile high, and the saddle was starting to corrod. But other than that it's was in pretty good...

    So, I was looking around at Strats for a while and decided to pull the trigger on this one. I wanted an Elite, but the thumb wheel neck adjustment and pickups were the only real differences. It's got a 9.5" to 14" compound radius, S1 switch, and very mediocre N3 noiseless pickups. It feels great...

    SOLD PENDING FUNDS it pains me like crazy to get rid of this, but I guess you can't keep everything. Here is a USA Strat from 1981 It's in great shape - overall VG condition. No breaks, major dings, finish chips, buckle rash, etc. Not a boat anchor at 7 lbs 10 oz. Pickguard is not original...

    Yesterday I took a drive to pick up a used Fender Classic Player 60's strat, limited edition Lacquer model. Seafoam green, matching headstock, vintage style tuners (a first for me), all nitro finish, tweed case. I have been GASing for daphne blue or similar, and this covers "or similar". The...

    I spent last week visiting my family down in San Diego and, prior to leaving, spent some time browsing the local sale option in Reverb to see what was out there. I don't NEED anything; but a guy can always look, right? I came across this- a 2017 Fender Squire Contemporary Active Stratocaster...

    I found this jazzmaster fender that apparently is from the year 1962 among some acquaintances, unfortunately I am not an expert in recognizing guitars of those years, will anyone know if it is really original?
  14. Music: Other Instruments
    Used Aerodyne J bass. Modded with an aguilar 4P-60 P pickup (assuming - it's closely matched to the J) and a Babicz bridge. Traded a strat towards it, since they aren't getting scooped up as I'd hoped. I have a black babicz bridge, so I'll be swapping them out and sending the chrome on to my...
  15. General Music Discussion
    Jeff is laying it down with some killer playing on his Yngwie Strat. Sounds phenomenal. A modern Jason/Yngwie. The pedal is cool but I'm just here for Jeff. So clean. Side note: I love this video of him playing this Gibson LP.

    Bone stock Chris Shiflett model Telecaster in great shape, includes the OHC. Asking $550+shipping.
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    When I bought both of my new Jacksons they came with a few free lessons from Fender Play. I didn't bother taking advantage of the offer, but my wife was curious. A few weeks ago they ran some deal where you could get all the lessons you wanted for only $45 for a year, so we got her a...

    Watching some of my subscribed channel at YT I bumped into this one where Phillip McKnight interviews and asks Fender Master Builder Ron Thorn to choose and give his opinion on 3 Squiers. It's nothing special the video but it's interesting to know what a Master Builder uses as his nº1 guitar...

    Been a big fan of Fender's incredibly bizarre mythology themed 1976 catalog for a long time. Never seen high res scans, but a sci-fi artwork site recently uploaded them. It's an ultra-cool bit of obscura because not only is it batshit insane, Fender themselves commissioned the art, thought this...

    I figured it would be best to do a little research first before swapping out tuning pegs. I have a Fender Blacktop Tele that I want to switch to locking tuners. I've looked around and google stuff, I even checked Warmoth's More Info Section. I'm quite sure that a modern Fender could be replaced...
