    Default Hello all! New to the forum.

    I've been a visitor here at the forum for years but finally decided to become a member. I figure since my Fender collection has grown beyond just 1 or 2 guitars, it was passed time to join.

    Here are a few of my beloved Fender guitars (& a couple partscasters):

    Welcome, Don. That's a wonderful collection and surely enough to be granted full membership with bar privileges. They made me buy some Teles before I became a junior member.
    I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......

    Thanks, Wes.
    A Tele is certainly hard to beat. The wine red Tele above was my 1st real Fender. I'd had some copies and a Squier before that but glad I found that deal. Put some Custom Shop pickups in it and I was hooked.

    The black Tele next to it is one that I had custom made. With a mahogany body and humbucker-sized P-90s, it makes my Gibsons jealous. I also really want a butterscotch Tele, ala Keith Richards setup.

    Don, that is a handsome stable of fine specimens! (My wife gets really pissed off when I refer to a great athlete as a "specimen", but she has found that she cannot project that righteousness on guitars). Sir, you have full bar privileges! And thank you for that first drink (which I did have, although my diet doesn't currently allow). I have been a fan of honeyburst and cherryburst, but have developed a new appreciation for darker bursts and therefore love the last Strat you posted. I did a similar burst on one I built for a client (and close friend/awesome player) recently:

    That is definitely a beautiful burst!! Wow!
    When I was younger I didn't pay much attention the burst guitars, but as I've gotten older and wiser, they have become my favorites.

    That one I posted above is my most recent acquisition. It's a 2007 American Deluxe Strat with the soft-V neck. I love it and it's safe to say it's my current favorite.

    I've also got a 2006 Mexican Deluxe Player's Strat. It's a great sounding guitar but I'm not as fond of the neck...been contemplating swapping the neck for a V shaped one.

    Welcome to FenderTalk, Don! That's quite a nice collection you've got going there.
    "Life's too short not to enjoy great tone."

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Nice! I love the Bandmaster!
    I got this one for a steal. Bought it with the cabinet and a '69 Gibson Medalist all for $160 with the understanding that they may or may not be in working condition.

    Turns out this '67 Bandmaster was still all original, including power tubes, and it worked. It was very slow to power on due to the old capacitors so I have to change those before I use it anymore.

    The cabinet was originally part of a stereo pair of amplified speakers for a '73 Fender Rhodes. The amplifier section has been removed at some point. Coincidentally, the speakers are original and the same Fender branded models that were in the guitar cabs at the time.
