    First I need to search the forum on how to post pictures.
    Thanks! I bet evenings around the camp fire are pretty fun. Do you ever run into any fellow pickers in your travels?

    Yeah, I tend to gravitate toward the cheapies. I wise man once told me: "nothing's more satisfying than finding a cheap guitar that plays awesome".
    You got some really groovy Fender stuff on that list. Heck, it's all petty cool.

    I sold all my "real" guitars years ago, but I kept the ones I built.

    First one I built in my college woodshop elective class, 1984, and it's my favorite. The mahogany has a warm resonance that just sounds darn nice. The pickups are a PAF and a vintage Strat (both reproductions made in 1984). The neck was bought from a catalog (it says, "Fender Stratocumulus" in letters I Xeroxed onto stickyback mylar). My daughter uses it now for practice at home, for her 10th grade guitar elective.

    Then I built the space shuttle guitar from some woodshop maple, and attempted to lay my own frets - never again. It's nothing but a prototype, it plays like crap.

    Finally, I bought a mahogany Tele body and 24" Strat neck and put Strat pickups in the last one. I did the 24" neck because Brian May's guitar has a 24" neck.

    I bought a red plastic toy guitar at Sears decades ago, it was probably 18" long total and cost ten bucks or less. I put real nylon strings on it, and it was one of the most fun instruments I have ever owned.

And what makes it special to you?

    Here's my Stratofakester among a collection of small amps. I got the guitar about 25 years ago from a guy who needed money. It was a kit guitar that he built himself. The best thing about it was a great paint job and some decent hardware. It had some issues but I've corrected those over the years. It now plays and sounds great! I was setting it up thinking maybe I'd sell it for something more modern. Nope. She stays.
    That's a nice Beatle amp................back in the day, when you only needed to know 3 chords(come to think of it, it's all you need to know now) My first was a Danelectro with all sorts of sparkles...........cost me $45 which was a lot then. Then I managed to save some denaro and bought a beautiful red Gretch solid body. $400, and that WAS a lot of money. That guitar always stayed in tune. Wish I had the Danelectro now, probably worth a few bucks. If it would have been the one with the amp in the case, probably a lot more.

    When I was a poor kid in college (as opposed to a poor kid today) I would bike down to the nearest guitar store and play with the merchandise. They had a Strat in what they called a blueburst paint scheme, which was unique to about 1982. That was when Fender made everything in USA and was just coming out with their vintage reproduction series. That blueburst was top of the line new production and the sweetest playing Strat I've ever played, and I wanted it bad, but it was something like $800-900 which was out of the question so it got away from me. Never owned a Strat but had a '79 Tele that I loved.

    Can't play anymore, (nerve damage in the left arm from some time back) used to play a Bullet Strat from the import side of Fender, then later a five string Ibanez bass. Last amp I had was a Krank, forget which one but it was small.

    Been busy lately, have a new "leaderpship" team at work. Been hoping around like a one legged frog on a hot skillet.
