If any of you have noticed my absence for the past couple of months, here's why, I got sucked into buying guitars.
This was the first, which I traded in. It needed more work than I wanted to put into it. It was an ESP LTD MG-750.
I traded it in on a sweet Dean EVO Special Select.
It's pretty nice. $500 is a bit high for a Korean made guitar IMHO but it's twice the guitar that the ESP was. It has great tone and a set neck (I'm a sucker for set necks!) and it's mahogany on the neck and body.
Sadly it has no trem so I bought this:
It's a Squier Stagemaster. It was the princely sum of $110 and it's got almost as good action as the Dean. I bought some pickups for it to replace the mismatched set in it but I haven't received them yet.
Tomorrow I'm going to go pick up a 1998 Squier Mexican Strat in Lake Placid Blue. It's got the traditional single coil setup and vintage style trem so it'll give me that twang you just can't get with humbuckers. Of course it'll be getting upgraded pickups and I may even get a Warmoth neck for it down the road.
So, yeah, I'm outta my mind.
