FYI, there's a smokin' 56' Relic Strat at L&M in Calgary. Very light and resonant. Almost vibrates right out of your hand. She feels like she's under 7.5 lbs.

If I wasn't over my GAS, I'd be all over it. Gotta grab the good ones when they pop up.

Yea, I gotta agree, played it on friday, really impressed, If I didn't already have one... interesting that mine has a "V" shape and that one was rounder, more like a "D" FWIW I think you should buy it Jeff.

Hey don't tempt me man. I just explained to everyone I was over my GAS. She definately is a gooder though.

If I fall of the wagon it's most likely going to be a tele.

Aaron,

I spent the whole damn day thinking about how that thing rang in my hands. You bastard!!
I went and put it on my L&M account, are you happy now? :wink: :rockon2:

It weights 7.1 lbs that's amazing for a Strat, my 65' is 7.6 lbs.

I'm going to let the 65' go to finance this one though. I can't justify both strats and this one has toooooo good of wood to let it slip into someone elses hands.

The neck is definately allot less V than yours. Pretty much the perfect size actually.

I might have to put a little hotter pickups in it though.

It looks like Mr. Severson is getting a pickup upgrade for his strat afterall. I'm not trading mine in with all my upgrades in it, I need his pickguard assembly.

bwahahahaha... I just knew that GAS thing wouldn't last. Nice try though.

I also have no hope in hell of getting over it. :tongue:

Congrats on a great Strat. :food-smiley-004:

Hey Jeff. Sorry Bro. But I think it is great pickup. I didn't want to say it but I like the neck on yours better than mine. even considered buying it myself but didn't have the jingle nor could I justify a pair of '56's. good grab, let me know if you ever decide to part with it.

Nice score!

People think they can cure the GAS addiction, but, well, they can't.

All is order, got lucky Mr. Mozell is taking it in on Wednesday to give it a proper setup with 11s and a bone nut.

Pickups are on the way. Seymour Duncan Antiquities I Custom Bridge and Antiquity II RWRP middle and straight Antiquity II for the neck.

Way cool Jeff. I knew the gas relief was only temporary. :tongue:

So, where do I find this Mr Mozell feller... I need a couple guits set up and want to put some of those Glendale saddles on my Broadcaster.

Huuhhmana huuhhmana howwwaahh!

She's gorgeous! Ohhh, and just the right amount of wear IMO.

How much was she? And have you named her yet? Cause a guitar like that deserves a name.

Jeff,

Remember the thread on G.A.S.? You said something like, 'I have this GAS thing under control' and my answer was, 'Yes, and the earth is flat and the moon is made of green cheese.' Guess the earth is still round and the moon a hunk of rock

Nice axe.:food-smiley-004:
