1996 Fender MIM Standard Stratocaster

Hey there again,

This time its details on my new Fender MIM Standard Strat!
It comes in a very unique color. Some kinda sonic/metallic blueish look.

I acquired this sometime in June 2007 from the US, particularly Boston, MA

Here are the specs:
Alder body (HSS Cavity for upgrades)
Maple neck
21 Medium Frets
3 Stock Fender Single Coils
Stock Vintage Tremolo
1 Tone 2 Volume Controls
5-way PickUp Selector

Not sure what else I missed out at the moment but there you go!

Somehow I feel that I am not fated to play strats. Well at least not 21 fret strats with single coils....darn it....
It seems that I just can't get used to this guitar. Oh well, give it another shot first before I do anything. Might even sell this baby away just because I know I probably won't be using her anytime soon as well.

Great stuff though. Too bad I was brought up with 24 fret guitars and thin necks that are very well made for playing metal and hard rock. You know, those late 80's/early 90's kinda guitars. Hehe...

Well thats all for the Fender. Enjoy the pictures!


Gear Updates!

Since a long time has passed since I last posted here, there have been some gear changes as well.

First up, the BOSS GT-6 is no longer in my possession. Its been sold somewhere in May.

Next in line is that I am selling my Crate Blue Voodoo 60w Tube Amp.
I know its a pity, however it has to be done since I'm way under using the amp.
Will probably get something smaller in the near future once this is sold.

New Gear Announcement!

I have acquired a 1996 Fender MIM Stratocaster!

I will be posting more detailed pictures of that pretty soon. Probably within the next couple of hours. But it seems that I am not fated to play 21 fret guitars. I don't feel that comfortable with it plus I am also too used to the 24 frets and a thinner neck.

KORG Toneworks AX3000G has arrived at my doorstep.

I haven't had much time to play with it yet, however from what I tested at the shops it seems to be a darn good pedal and at a very good price as well!
I will post more info on that soon as well.

Well, stay tuned for the gear updates as I post more info on the newly acquired gear.

Cheers to you all!

Its been awhile!

Hey peeps!
Its been while since I last posted here.
Didn't have the time with flying back to the US for some stuff and then work.

Anyway I will be continuing to try my best to keep this as updated as possible.
