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.

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.

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.
