    I have to agree! I've owned and played several Strat copies throughout my 13yrs of playing and just got my first Am Std Strat 2 weeks ago. I can't say enough about it! It is absolutely a joy to play and the tone(Delta Tone PUs) is incredible....(more)

    If I had to do it all over again(first guitar), I would not waste any time, energy or $$$ on copies or junk guitars. Save up the few extra $$ and get an American Standard Stratocaster instead of a Squire or other Strat copy. REALLY save up you...(more)

    Tortex pix i use are by Dunlop. I like the crisper sound that they give me over plastics. They also stay in my hand easier because of the matte finish. I use .88mm and like em alot...use em on acoustics and 'lectrics... -j

    I play everything from blues/pop/country/bluegrass/rock/metal.('bout everthing). I use Teardrop shaped Dunlop Tortex picks .88mm. For me they are the happy medium between too stiff and too soft. I can change the way they sound by the amount of p...(more)

    Amen to that! The local guys are not becoming millionaires-they're in it for alot more than the almighty dollar. Chain stores and internet outlets are in it for $$$$$ only. Sure, you MIGHT be able to get something for $100 or so less, but try...(more)

    I just ordered a Fender Am. Std. Strat that I should have in a few days. In the past, I've always bought "off the shelf" or used. But for once in my life I wanted to get a brand new axe that didn't have anyones grubbys all over it as demos have...(more)

    I've had this same anxious feeling before(and still do sometimes). The thing that I try to do is not to "impress" but to play basic chord/scale progressions that you are comfortable with and know inside and out. Close your eyes. Pretend you k...(more)

    ...yeah, i've tried that. I have a 1/2 size Goya that I've tried to take with me, but I have to take so much other stuff, that it was just a real hassle. I've learned to travel as light and as fast as possible and until further notice, one or ...(more)

    Another couple pennies from another in the same boat. I'm 37, married, 2 kids. My family always comes first. But...playing, to me, is like breathing. If I go a couple of days without it, I go nuts. I travel about 40% of the time for work an...(more)

    Great inexpensive tuner is Korg CA-20. It's chromatic, small, and can be calibrated to whatever pitch. Also has automatic and manual note settings. -jeff

    One thing to remember is that when you get a new car from the dealer, they have to wash/wax/remove sticky stuff from the windows/plastic from the seats, etc, etc...same with a guitar "out of the box". As you know, strings stretch, humidity and ...(more)
