I had a "new guitar day" on Saturday.

Some friends and I went for lunch near L&M and I went in to see what they had and came out with this. This was the one I had ordered from Sweetwater. I set it up to my liking on Sunday morning but, like a Kentucky fried idiot, I cut my nails on my fretting hand too short on Saturday evening and the tip of my middle finger was too painfully to be able to bend strings appropriately.

It is as light as a light thing and "fits" just like a strat does. I could imagine that I could play for hours with it standing up and not have any issues.

Sat down, it feels very thin when compared to my main guitar (an LP) and the pickups can be split and, if I can get it to sound like a good single coil and if it has enough "meat" when using both coils, I can see that it could easily become my main guitar.

I have had to agree not to buy any more guitars for a while, so my wish to obtain an 80's style shred machine with a floyd rose will have to be put on ice for a while!

I have been trying to learn the run from Slash's Anastasia, show here at 0:38 :

The bit where it toggles from 15, 17 and 12th fret ascending gets me every time and I struggle to get past 70 BPM.

It looks like work life is scheduled to get back to normal on June 1 so I don't have long to get it done.

You must have quite a collection now.

I had hoped that my daughters would be on the verge of leaving next month and my musical equipment moved into my youngest's room. C19 has out paid to that for thee moment.

I trade up, so I got a 200& Epiphone Les Paul in January for $130 and sold for $300 including a iRig mono amp I picked up for $10 then used the money for the 2017 MIM Fender Duo Sonic

Most of my collection has been built Up from A deal or two down the line lol

Here is my Duo Sonic, I been looking out for a 24” scale Strat like guitar since I got my PRS

This one came up right time and right price

Very nice. What do those pick ups sound like? Single coils, humbuckers or something in between?

It sounds like a strat, singles, it’s a mix between a strat and a Tele to be honest, it plays nice cleans and can get raunchy when cranked.

i like it, the short scale makes bar chords easier to reach for me. Won’t replace my PRS there is room for both in my players area

Atrip down memory lane. I wonder how much that 69 red strat is worth.

To be honest, I prefer the blues. I remember the first time my father took me to a bar where some blues band from a neighboring state was playing. This performance made me fall in love with the blues. Now my heart belongs to this style forever.
