Paul ... OMG , you set that down on bare concrete !!  :o

 

I have a '95 Strat cuz I always wanted a Strat, but for

real kicks I have a Line6 Variax which has 23 digitally

modeled guitars. Strat, Tele, Gibson LPs, ES 335s,

Firebird V, Rickenbackers 6 and 12 string, Guild and

Martin 6 and 12 strings, banjo and sitar. Run thru Line 6s

multi FX processors (HD500 and an Amplifi TT) with 23

different amps and over 100 pedal effects to choose from

and it's almost too much to play with.

I swapped the stock Variax neck (rosewood) with a

Warmoth 16/10 radius maple. Couldn't ask for much more :) :) :) :)

 

Anyone wanting to learn or improve their guitar playing

should jump onto Youtube. Beginner stuff (this is a guitar pick)

to any level above that , and it's free. :thumbsup:

Paul that's a stunner!

Mike, i've often thought about getting a Variax, one of the bands i play in does classic rock covers and it would sure be handy having the versatility of a Variax, in particular the 12 string. 

I use a 2016 Gibson Les Paul, a Gibson Explorer and a ratty old partscaster Telecaster that i've had for years. 

 

Nice to see some guitarists on here too!

Ha...Not bare concrete, it's outdoor carpeting in front of the shop to keep the doggies from getting too dirty.It does look nasty though.

Beautiful guitar, Paul.

I'm not the greatest guitar player in the world but do recognise some classics, have a Fender Ritchie Blackmore sig strat here, big fan of him, seen him live this year and last year with his reformed Rainbow band ... but one replica guitar I would love to try is a Brian May red special replica, remember reading how the original was home built, it has a sound like no other guitar because of it, but Brian made it famous, quite amazing really, have seen the replica ones for sale, definitely something I would need to try before buy though, would need to be played through suitable correct of time amplification, but i really love the sound.

This one has about the best feel of anything I've owned in a long time.  Ebony, mahogany and maple wood.

That's pretty cool. And I love how it's called the F-5E!

Seems you made out like a BANDIT on one Clean piece!

 

Here's a guy that gives a tuning tip:

Awesome, have a regular nice Fender Precision Bass here, 4 strings are enough for my bass playing in same way 6 strings are enough for normal guitars, have seen guys use 7 string guitars, Satch, Vai at times ...Beautiful .... enjoy.

Nice one Phase, watched it from beginning to end ... Obsess about tuning and intonation too like Joe, but cant play like him, that's a great vid and I will share, learnt from it.

Most of the guitar hero's have their own guitar techs whom they trust, that's refreshing to see Joe did his own guitar tech ... nice one.

My Hero and from my early teens is Ritchie Blackmore, different styles, got to see him live in 2016 and 2017 with Rainbow reborn, bad accident last year but pushed myself for last years show ... it was worth it :)

Rock n Roll!!!!

Have fun with it!

Clapton mentions Mex Strat in his bio book and I know from a fellow pro-musician that some Mex Strats are very good and some are even better than some US Made. Odd, but who knows.

I believe that this guitar here is better than a Squier in general. 

So rip the air with it!
