Looks like the 90s ate a pack of baseball cards and shat them out onto a guitar.

Also please don't burn the Rondo, those are great guitars. Give it to a notorious pedophile or child.

I was just given a 71' SG which is now my favourite guitar. Might be because it's new and shiny but nothing beats it at the moment.

Ah nice, I have a similar model I use for a lot of rock stuff though I play mostly acoustic nowadays. Gibson J-45 my weapon of choice

They are actually pretty good. I was genuinely surprised by the quality when I first got it. Was a B stock with a case for 130 + shipping. Set neck, better tuners than my squier classic vibe strat, intonation needed a little adjusting and pickups are good for trashy thrash. Do you own one Frownland?

Not me! The previous owner, actually. I don't know the specific details, but the guitar has three pickups and only the middle is original. Neck and bridge are swapped for GFS pickups (which I know little about). He's also switched stoptails and studs for faber ones and swapped out all the electronics in it .. and various other things too, I think, like the knobs. He seems like a real fiddler, but the guitar sounds pretty sweet.

Nice I have a squier tele that I put GFS jazzmaster pickup in it. Noisy but sounds good. It seems like these days you can get a really good sounding and looking guitar for little investment. Just a bit of time and patience. I find most of the time the most important part of a guitar is how much it suits you.


Like I have a nice American FSR strat that I never worked on but I have a classic vibe squier strat that I've modified with weird parts :Eastwood Filtertron rip off in bridge, p90 from an old univox high flier in middle, and the stock strat in the front. The tremolo arm is broken into place and is overly sensitive and it looks like **** from stickers and scratches. But when it comes down to it it's the guitar I play the most because it suits me the best even if the quality is way lower.

Nice, with the old school pickguard, P90s, and tremolo? I'd love to try one of these.
Post a picture if you can.

What a great price. My friend had one for a while that he had intended to be a project guitar that he could use to practice guitar repair (he wants to be a luthier/guitar technician), but he couldn't part with the original parts. I played it and it was used and super broken in, and fell in love. I told him I'd buy him weed for two months in exchange for it and he refused since he was in love too. Played some here and there at guitar center and had similar experiences sans the shady exchange bit.
