Hello

Thought I should join here since I'm waiting on a vintage Mustang which is probably gonna need some work.
I've been reading up on stangs and kept landing here, lots of very knowledgeable people here :)
I'll no doubt need some assistance once it arrives.

My electric guitar history is pretty boring, honestly.
Had some crappy 90s plywood strat copies early on.
Then I had a 1973 strat on loan from a friend for a long time (which I should have bought :fp: ).
Then later on in '06 I bought a MIM Classic 70s strat to try and relive some of the magic of the 1973 strat, and that's what I have now (it's not that magical, though).

See a pattern?
No offsets. Ever. (Oh wait, unless a Squier Jazz bass counts)
Time to fix that.

I had initially explored buying a neck and body and assembling my own Stang-a-like to my specifications. (Might still do that)
I also looked into importing a japanese MG69, which gets kind of expensive.
Then I happened upon a supposed 1966 Mustang at a decent price within the EU, that has been mutilated a bit.
So I'm giving that a go.

Better to rescue a guitar, if you can.

post something when it arrives,

I've been to one World's Fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing i ever heard come out a pair of headphones.

Well, I don't know if you can call it a rescue exactly, since I'm gonna have to do some modding on it myself :D
It's already routed for humbuckers, which is a plus in my book. Unfortunately it has an extra hole in the upper bout, which is really sad.
Gonna look into getting that plugged and refinished at some point.
There will be post. And pics. I'm still at the part where you tap F5 on a tracking page 100 times a day at the moment. :wacko:
