    I'd love to play, but I don't have much more than a couple of sets of strings, value-wise(and a set of Affinity pickups).
    I will watch with great interest, however, so I can get an idea of what I should be holding on to for future boxes.
    Have fun, guys!!

    I'd love to partake, but don't have much to offer at the moment aside from some strings.

    Most of the "spare parts" are either already set aside for a project or are stock parts from my SE.

    Perhaps next year...

    I'll still watch this to see what everyone makes out with in the end! Good luck! It sounds like fun!

    Postage would cost me about the same as a new Bullet...

    We are all the way up to 7. I thought it would be of more interest than this. Last time we had about 18 I think...I guess people just aren't interested any more.

    Give it some time, people will probably jump in last minute.

    I do encourage people to give it a try. It is a lot of fun seeing what people get out of the box. It’s not really about getting cool stuff though, it’s more about sharing in our little community. I still use a Delay pedal I got out of the box last time and found a new band that I love with a CD that was in the box. It’s just cool to me knowing that some of the stuff I’m using came from you guys!

    Anyone downstream from me will at least have 2 or 3 new Strat pickguards, MIM Strat electronics and PUPs, and new GM 62z PUPs to choose from. Next?

    That is definitely the fun part of the mystery box. The bad side is when you are at or near the end and realize that everyone added a pickguard and throw away pickups, so you put a Fulltone in to start it off and end up with 30 warped cut up pickguards. So if you do it, try to be somewhere in the middle, because you are hosed at the end.

    That’s not always the case. I think last time I was the third from the last, and I had a fun going through all the stuff in the box.
