That's gonna seriously kill the wood, which is the whole point of a guitar.. But hey, if it's cheap, well you know..

Brian would know about WOOD. lol

I have an Ibanez back home. SA120-EX, nothing serious.

I'm selling it to my buddy with my almost new looking DS-1.

When the wood in a guitar neck is exposed to changes in temperature. it will 'warp' or basically fuck up your wood. Your neck will probably be the shape of a c and your guitar will be unplayable

You'll probably be able to adjust the truss rod to fix it, not too big of a deal. Make sure you research how to do it first though

I love messing with pedals. When I really need to practice technique though, sometimes I'll adjust my amp to a clean setting so the distortion and any other effects don't mask small mistakes that I make. What techniques do you guys have down? For the love of god, I cannot sweep/economy pick all that well. Apart from that, I don't see anything else I can't practice every other day.

Not saying Fender is crappy, but I'm pretty everyone who knows what a general electric guitar knows the Strat design. And since Squier came out, it's just somewhat made the traditional electric guitars look less, I guess? I mean, it doesn't apply to everyone; I mean, look at Yngwie Malmsteen.

I still need black/gold Witch hat knobs, 2v 1t to finish it, then it's just paying a luthier to put in the (AG)MOP trapizoid inlay3-22), and do binding around the neck.

Strats are pretty versatile guitars sound wise depending on pickup selection and I am in no way a fan of the strat design , I do like the look of the Jaguar guitars and the blacktop comes with dual alnico humbuckers so it's pretty much a jaguar with an sg styled pickup selection wich is what I'm into, but I'm into other things right now then throwing money away on another guitar right now so I've kinda gave up on that idea

Not gonna lie, I like myself a strat now and again. Has to have a satin neck tho, I cannot stand glossy necks. The one thing I hate about the strat, is the heal joint or the neck joint where the body is bolted to the bridge. Nearly all of them are like that, yes it works and strong, however it does limit access to the higher Frets especially if u have smaller hands, a set neck or a neck through would be far better! If not. At least contor the joint and round off that corner.

My bother problem with strat guitars probably has to be the tremolo, the lower end models are crap, and they are a pain, its only when you hit the 800ish strats you can get good hardware and wiring done...

Seriously, Leo fender built the strat on a budget, and he made some(at that time what most luthiers would call deadly mistakes) choices that have plagued the strat for years.
Single coil pickups, forgivable, yes but with florescent lighting the 60 cycle hum becomes way harsh.
The sq heel joint, I mean that goes without saying. Round that crap down. Or make it a neck through. I am fairly certain Leo invented the bolt on neck. Which works. And its nice because its replaceable. But Ehh
The prewire pickguard: okay yes my guitar a Gibson V uses one too. However the number of these Gibson makes a day is NOTHING compared to the number fender pumps out IN A WEEK given that shear volume of units. Your going to get allot more mistakes.


But ya know I just like my Gibson's more. I find they sound and look better with higher quality control. Never had a problem with mine before or after the mod. (accept for tuning stability but I mean the vibrola does that grovers fixed that)
Saying all that. Each time I go into a shop. I almost always grab a higher end strat and I just start shredding. Sooo... They did something somewhere right! Well done Leo Fender. Long live your shredding weapons of mistakes they still rock!
Last thing I gotta say is the nut. Have you taken a good look at it? Its bitty! Sure. Use bone, ivory, graphite, or brass and thats just fine and dandy, but the majority I have seen use a plastic(non graphite) nut that just brakes.

Oh and have you tried adjusting a strat for heavier gauge strings? Pain in the but only thing worse is a Jackson with. Floyd rose, which is also owned by fender now.

I'm saving up for EMG HZ H4 pickups or whatever. They're the equivalent of those new fancy solderless EMG 81/85's. If anything, I love my Jackson JS30RR FR. The only things I really could hate about it is that it's neck heavy, which is the first worst part. When standing up, not too big of a problem if I lay my hand on the guitar, obviously. Next is where the input position is.... It's absolutely ridiculous to have it in BETWEEN the horns of the body when V guitars obviously have the input slanted and on the opposite side if you're right-handed, vice-versa. Nothing a right-angle cable can't fix, but still..

you could mod it with a strat style input position it so that the cable runs in line with the V down to the strap button, you could also get some flat stainless 1/8th" and bend it, and drill it and mount it below the strat style input to act as a leg guard for your cable.

In the picture, you can see it's on the opposite side where a traditional right-handed player would obviously put the horn. Damned Jackson got bored with these models..

wjust get a strat style output jack, and a sodering gun, it'll take like 2 minutes, i would still make that leg guard tho. and I'd move the strap pin to a better spot. like the back on the fin.
