    glad to know scratchland,about the scratchx working on your strat finish.I've got a 1980 gibson spirit(you don't see many around) made in the Tennesee factory.I had to buff and buff to get a couple of scratches out.The laquer is getting a bit cracked on the sides here and there,but that's part of the character of the guitar to me.

    you said a home made strat.is it a combo of diff.strats or is it actually cut by you and put together?

    well to be completely honest...I guess its home built, not homemade. Its a Strat clone made by a company called Saga. It comes with everything you need and most parts are ready to go together, however extra sanding and cutting your headstock shape are optional. I have been very happy with it so far...but then again I have never owned a factory made electric guitar. But it taught me alot on the workings of a guitar,and painting,polishing,customizing,etc was a nice experience.

    Nice to see you assembled your own strat!coool! unique sound? I was always a die hard stratman and is the most popular guitar in the world. I must admit though,I love Les Pauls.I prefer the construction methods as opposed to Fender inc. One important thing here though, A strat has a sound which is very difficult to replicate on other guitars and is therefore unique.

    Maybe you could start up a thread for fellow musicians in the 'break room'.

    Anyway,keep rockin'.......Eddie.

    Hi SL, i'll look forward to seeing the pics! I'll get mine done too,i'm just a bit busy at the mo.

    If you're really into this,you should go and train to be an instrument builder.I had a friend that does this.I can't remeber the link. Just type in Moon Guitars.His stuff is excellent.great acoustics aswell.He builds everything,Banjo's,violins,mandolins,...you name it,but he specialises in guitars.I used to go to him every six months to get my frets stoned.

    cya,eddie.

    Still have my 56 Strat and Pro amp I bought new off the rack.
    Duputren's Contraction in both hands has ended my guitar playing. Could have surgery to fix the hands, but at my ripe old age, 1.5 hrs under a general for 1.5 hrs doesn't appeal to me.

    Vintage stuff,really nice.All original,pickups etc. '56.that'll be worth a few $$$$'s.

    i've been playin' since i was 10.Havn't had time to play in 2 years almost.The oldest stuff i've got is a '78 fender precision and fender twin amp..Must be the heaviest combo in the world!!!! 'There's no such thing as a handle strap on a fender twin!' (except when they put them on at the factory).

    Sorry to hear you can't play it anymore.Must be really heartbreakin'
