    Hi all

    I've been trolling for a few days seeking wisdom and inspiration for future guitar mods...

    I've possessed a guitar or two on and off for the past 40+ years (I'm late 50's now) but had never progressed beyond my schoolboy level however, having met a my step-daughter's boyfriend just before Christmas I've rekindled my love of guitars (he has several).

    I've bought and sold a couple of real cheap ones before acquiring the following:

    2018 Squier VM Stratocaster in Black
    2007 Squier Affinity Stratocaster in Candle Apple Red
    2001 Squier Telecaster in Pale Blue (not sure of official colour although it's been redone at some stage)
    2017 Revelation RTE Custom Telecaster in Sunburst
    xxxx Project Stratocaster (relic body, new neck, tuners, loaded pickguard, etc.) - work in progress...

    I have an older Vox AC15 Cambridge (part valve) and recently purchased a Bugera V22 Infinium (all valve).

    Regards

    Graeme

    Go ahead and step on my Welcome Mat...
    Yes, I think the V22 is a great amp. It is my go to amp when I'm not using the Bug T50.
    I have plans to demo the T50 soon in a video. It is much more versatile. Here is a demo using the 22...

    Howdy! Nice rack-O-axes you got there! Since you’re “over there”, do you ever run into “Gordon Smith” guitars? I’ve seen pictures of them, but never was around an actual guitar. Thank you!

    Hi, yes I frequently see Gordon Smith guitars in my local music stores. Very good quality I believe.

    Hi all, I've had some movers and shakers recently.
    I'm up to six electric guitars now, albeit one has allegedly been sold and another one bought and on its way!
    Three stratocasters, three teles....

    Squier VM 70s Stratocaster 2018
    Squier Obey Propaganda Telecaster 2006
    Squier Stratocaster (2004 body but everything else is new to look like a Fender) - SOLD?
    Squier Telecaster (2001 body with new chinese neck)
    Project Stratocaster (bought parts and made it!) - nice to know how they go together...
    Revelation RTE Custom Telecaster
    Squier VM Telecaster Special 2013 (on its way to me)

    Better photos to follow shortly...

    Installed a loaded pickguard made by Voodoo Vibe and position 4 is a heck of a twang!
