    For those about to vote - We salute you!..Always wanted to use that in a sentence. Here is a general map of those participating in the Mystery Box - The next Iteration: Green Stars represent members already in. Still time if you want to get your green star on the map.

    I'm guilty of adding a pickguard to this past box. However it was a very aged white *8* - hole one that several members had asked me concerning. I figured there was a demand and I have several, so I included it.

    Like I said, if it will help a member, be it to put back to stock a guitar or maybe help someone building a relic I am OK with it. I think most people would say don't put a Chinese "off brand" MAHAR for example pickguard. Also if the box is already full of pickguard maybe consider something else. Would you like to be in the next box, still a few open spots.

    Nice looking Squier. Reminds me of a mexi classic player I used to own - One I wish I had never sold - Loved the smell of that strat every time I opened the case. Honey Blonde with gold hardware, tortoise shell and the extra button for more tones. She was aging well with the wood grain just peeking thru the finish. Hope the guy I sold it too is taking care of her.

    If there is room for me I'll get in again. And I won't throw in any ceramic pups or pick guards...maybe

    How long does the box get passed around for—forever? When people putting buttons and yarn and old cough drops

    No it will start and end with me. So far we are at 15 people. A new box will probably start toward the end of this ones run. We only ask you put sensible guitar/bass related items in the box due to room. Some ideas of what to put int he box. What you have left from a build, or something you bought guitar related that you no longer use, Maybe an upgrade you decided not to install. Something that will help a member finish a build they may be working on, maybe a concert or instructional DVD/Blue ray, Ace Frehley's used guitar pick would be ok.

    Sky's the limit. But refrain from buttons and yarn, and especially old cough drops - unless the cough drop is verifiable from a rock god, LOL.

    The main thing is we want to have fun with this - Remember we want members to take pictures and post what you remove from the box - Not what you put in so it will be a surprise to the members who have no yet received the box. Once you see someone has taken one or more of your items you can can join the fun again by saying that was your item.

    We are at 15 on the list including me as OP. The box has been loaded up and is ready to go out. By friday I will put the list in Geographical order and I think go north east, south est, south, south west and then PNW. If you have not submitted your name you should now, only @lancurtains and @jimbojo have yet to provide addresses. I will send the box on its first leg Friday.
