    Welcome to the forum. Be careful, before you know it you'll be up to your elbows in guitars, it's addictive.

    Hello and welcome.

    OK, I was just watching this from Guitar Max. Man can this guy play!!!

    NO, this isn't about a Squier, which is what I play / learn on ... But he had some professional work done to it, thus in line with what you wrote, and it's learning a shred lick, so educational too.
    How's that for a semi-run-on sentence? :) :) :) :

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and compliments! Squierbilly, my Charvel was being lent out to the owner of the MIM Strat while I have his guitar. I don’t have any recent pics of it so I’ll try to get some posted for you. Actually just got it back yesterday because he’s pretty much in love with my MIK Squier II. I just got it back up and running with the new volume pot and output jack, so I let him switch it out. Also just put in graphtec saddles. They pure the tone out and looks freakin awesome with the red, black and chrome theme it’s got going on. It sounds dam goood in his hands, and he’d be the only person I’d be willing to sell it to once it’s done too. He’s actually doing me a favor taking it from me for the time being so I can concentrate on finishing the MIJ Strat pup install and clear way for the American Strat. It’s definitely pretty hard to get anything done with that around lol.

    Got around to taking a pic of the Charvel, right after I installed a flush mount strap lock at the bottom of the body. Didn’t think about how the top button sits on a very narrow surface...but I kinda dig how it looks a lot

    You should see mine from a few months ago. I wrote quite the book.

    Welcome to the boards, AliceUnchained! You have come to the right place.

    That’s Bullet Bill! From Super Mario. I was a huge Mario fan growing up in the Nintendo era. I had found it in storage and wanted to put it on something. When this guitar came around, I knew exactly what to do with it. It had some metal clips on the back of it that I had to grind off, as well as some of the back to sit properly on the guitar. Big glob if super glue, and it became one with the guitar. I think it was a belt buckle at one time possibly.
