FD, you are a genius. This'll stop all those annoying "What guitar?" threads and they really annoy me.

Or at least we'll now have a place to put them when they inevitably pop up.
:D

Heres one for ya.

Im looking to buy a strat, and I would like the stock version to have a 7.25 radius neck. Which reissues or models still come with the smaller 7 1/4 and not 12 or 9.5?

Fender or G&L, no preference really. Just as long as its SSS.

My friend is looking to get a bass so he can teach himself how to play so me and him can play together. $200 at the very most, any ideas?

You can probably get a Squier P-Bass for that much, I got one in a starter kit for $300. If you just look for the bass $200 is about right.

i'm thinking about getting a trumpet not really looking for something of super-holy quality just something cheap and easy to play

go to your local pawn shop and take the oldest looking thing in that price range that stays in tune. you'll likely end up with a 2nd tier piece of gear from the 70s built with better quality than any new mass produced plank for the same price.

God bless Pawn Shops. I just saw my local one selling a mim Tele for 230 bucks.
