    Re: Squier Anyone?

    Fred, I wasn't being rude earlier. Internet conversation is easy to misinterpret as there's no audio to hear the wise cracks and silly voice stuff.

    And now I'm in a minor dilemma of sorts. Part of me wants a Seafoam Green Squier Bullet Strat, and another part of me wants a White Squier Bullet Mustang. [Ugly headstock and all] I've had in my time about 2 dozen Strats in all forms, but never a 24" scaled Mustang. I'll have enough to buy just one. Practical thinking tells me Strat. The whackier side says Mustang. I must meditate upon this..
    I forgot what I was going to say...

    Nah, I got it, no offense taken. I'm smart (or thick-skinned) enough to not let offhand comments get to me. I pretty well know when I'm being taken to the woodshed!

    Mustang. That's all I'm gonna say.

    Just FYI, here is a photo of just my closet in my "studio." Some of my geets didn't come with cases (although I've taken to correcting that).

    Dat's a whole lotta gitfiddles! And cases, even gigbags, are a must for the instrument. I admire your commitment to your instruments. Well done old chap. Mustang eh? interesting, I'll have to weigh that. I almost did what I think redicioulious by creating one of those posts saying "Which guitar, help me decide". I hate those posts as the OP really knows what he wants to get. He's mearly showing off saying he's got money to burn and wants the others to fawn over his selfimposed "problem". I'm not built that way. I really can afford just one. Strats are everywhere, true enough. Mustangs, not so much. I'll know in a couple of weeks when I pull one down from the wall, plug in, and play some Bach. If it stands "the fugue and wail test" then we'll know. 24" scale and a 12" radius fretboard does sound intriguing doesn't it? Either way, I feel the need to feed my Squier Bullet Addiction. I do love dem Bullets!

    Had a Mustang, couldn’t sell it fast enough! Just me, but it wasn’t a sound I liked. It was gorgeous, Seafoam Green with a matching headstock and Rosewood board. If you can find some pulled 70’s Mustang/DuoSonic/Musicmaster pups, throw it in the middle and or neck position of a Strat. They’re flat poles and mid 6K DC resistance. And they’re some of the sweetest sounding pups in a Strat. I had one in my Joe Perry Strat I built, totally regret selling that pup for something “better”! Cuz I couldn’t find anything better.

    I've slowed down a bit.

    Re: Squier Anyone?

    Two's enough for me. I've decided I don't really need another.
    Believe I'll just redo the Tele with some linear tapered pots, and some improved pickups. That's all I want.

    Know an old man that has over 275 different Smith & Wesson revolvers. And he's always buying more. He can barely hit the target.
    Then again I know another with just one and he's a supurb shot.
    Yup, I got a semi-hollowbody with coil cutting HBs, and a solidbody with SCs. Yup, I'm good to go.

    Re: Squier Anyone?

    There’s collecting, and then there’s buying to use it. I’m really bad about getting stuff just to have it... I’m a borderline hoarder. Doesn’t help that I build and/or modify my own guitars! I set out to build stuff for sale, but then can’t bring myself to sell anything! LOL I should get a half decent semi hollow at some point. I’ve always wanted an Epiphone Casino. Or maybe a nice Gretsch, with sparkles and a Bigsby. Yeah, that should work. But tgen again, a Firebird 1 is intriguing to me. Oh, and let’s not forget about the Gibson Grabber I’ve always wanted. The last one to complete my list would be a sweet LP Jr, and that’ should be enough. Wait, you know a nice parlor acoustic would probably be handy to have... 😂

    Re: Squier Anyone?

    In keeping with the drifted theme of this thread, and the original theme as well, I will eventually get another Strat. And it will be a Bullet model Squier too. That would make three. One more than even Nigel Tunful can play at once. Far more than plenty I think. yup... A Squier Bullet Strat.... Yup. Then I'm done..

    I can't say anything about too many things really. I have 7 bows and can no longer shoot them as my right hand fails me now. Can't bring myself to part with em. A couple I've had well over half a century. One, the Nuge gave me back In '94. And it ain't leaving either. Nope, I got no room to talk.

    Re: Squier Anyone?

    I still have all my bows too Ranger! I can’t shoot mine either, bum right hand also... My last one is on the wall in my Dad’s den, rest are out in his garage. They hold a lot of sentimental value and I could never part with them. I started shooting archery at 2 years old, was sponsored by PSE at 9. I wished I could still shoot my bow, but I don’t get sad about it. Luckily, I’m pretty handy with a rifle and have switched to solely shooting them. It’s neat to find another archer on here.

    I like my Squiers. I have the Vintage Modified Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and '72 Thinline, as well as the Classic Vibe ('69 style) Thinline. I swapped the pickups in all of them, but that's not to say that the stock pickups were lacking.

    Re: Squier Anyone?

    I've got a CV50 Tele too, the one in my avatar. 2 weeks ago I bought a CV50 Strat and last week I put in a pre-order for a CV50 Esquire. I'm still in the hunt for a fiesta red CV60 Precision bass and I sure wouldn't mind one of those VM Fender VI by Squier.

    Damn you. I've never really thought about an Esquire - actually I want a Tele with a humbucker in the neck, a la Keef's Micawber - but I made the mistake of looking up that CV50, and now I'm intrigued...
