    I think I'll do it. Gives me a chance to search for a cheapo Mini. :)

    It reminds me of what my Dad said when he saw me playing my first electric guitar: "He's in heaven!"

    She's been learning stuff on her own so I told her about Justinguitar.com. That guy is just plain awesome and his stuff is free. Can't go wrong with that.

    I’ve got some free time tonight so I’m going to go ahead and give it the once over. It really is in excellent condition just dirty. Black strings and oxidized frets. The chrome needs a white down to. Off we go!

    Really wish I'd bought this for myself lol. I looked at it for weeks and just never pulled the trigger or even contacted the guy. Even with the old black strings and grubby frets it played like a dream. Ah well.

    Looks great! Not a fan of the knobs, but it cleaned up great! Beautiful fretboard!

    Two HB’s make it worth having.

    SSS is the best reason not to own a strat.


    Awesome first guitar!

    An HH Blacktop just popped up locally. I emailed and made an offer. I told them I can come pick up around 6pm tonight.

    Let's see what they say. :)

    What color? I had a Sonic Blue one about 4 years ago and have never seen another in person. I want one.

    The best thing about that strat is she can configure it any way she wants later on.. This gets her started..

    Seller got back with me. Said he has someone coming over tomorrow to check it out and he'd let me know. I said to tell him it's sold ... I'll come over right away. But he didn't go for it. Why hold it for someone when someone else will buy it right away !!!

    Been gassing for a Blacktop for a long time myself. Never see them pop up around here.
