I've got a lot of wants right now so I'm a little erratic as to when I strike. I've wanted another Strat since I got rid of my 62 hot rod. I actually have been trying for a while to find one but they are few and far between. My biggest want in a strat was a big chunky neck which this one has. Almost an inch thick at the 1st fret up to an inch at the 12th. Eventually I'll add an SG. I was going to jump on this nice custom shop nocaster at Willcutt guitars but I think I'm quite satisfied right now with my 52. So I'll concentrate on the other guitars for now.What the hell? I thought you were a hardcore black guard Tele man?? Coming over to the dark side?
