    Well, I'm a musician. Have been doing music realted things since about age 6. I can't play guitar persé, but am looking to learn when I get the spare time. It wouldn't be hard as I could teach myself.

    I can play a bit of bass by tab, but not much. Playing by ear is easy, and I have the fingers for it; as I said, it's a time thing.

    Hopefully, I'll get round to it soon. I do have an acoustic (can't remeber the make/model), which I mess on from time to time.

    Love to hear a few of you play some stuff. :)

    Well as you can tell by my member name, I have a Fender Fatstrat.

    Here's a quick list:
    1-Fender Fatstrat White
    1-Fender Standard Strat Black
    1-Fender Squier Strat (80's Japan) Red
    1-Charvel Black
    1-Kramer Focus 2000 White
    1-Jackson Black

    I use my Fatstrat and Standard Strat all of the time now. Back in the 80's I was into the heavy stuff useing my Kramer most of the time.
    I now use a TS-9 Tube Screamer, Boss Overdrive/Distortion, Boss Chorus Ensemble.

    I've got a Candy Apple Red Fender Strat (80's) and a Takamine acoustic a little Fender practice amp and a Digitech pedal. I've not played much in the last 2 or 3 years but I'll pick them back up eventually. In high school I got decent, played a little Satch and alot of Zeppelin and Pink Floyd...of coarse I've forgotten how to play most of that stuff now, so when I pick it back up I'll be relearning it all over again.

    My family on my fathers side is very musical. My grandfather was on the first performers on the Grand Old Opry before it was televised. My father's band opened for Eric Clapton in the 70's and he was asked back out to jam for the encore. My uncle still plays today, mostly country and has played with Billy Ray Cyrus and Reba.

    Between the two of them they have around 100 guitars...everything from PRS's to vintage gibson and fenders and every gadget/pedal/amp known to man. LOL

    @rbrock
    Didn't you say you had a Gibson Les Paul? Les Pauls are about two times heavier than a strat from my experiences. I played with a guy that played nothin but Les Pauls and I couldn't believe the difference between them and my strats. You have to be a trained weight lifter to play for 4 hours clubbing. LOL

    But seriously, the Gibsons have the best action. Fat frets, the best sustain(glued on necks), but I love my strat tones better.

    The Strat I have is a whopping 13 lbs. it is a True Fat Strat it makes a Les Paul feel light. When I show someone this guitar I have to watch their every move if I hand it too them they will almost drop it because they don't expect the weight! It also has a proto type locking nut that has a lever to release the the strings to tune and a Floyd Rose .

    fatstrat I love my Strats but they don't have the sustain so different songs call for a certain guitar I love my dive bombs on my Strats and the sustain on my Paul, I also have a 1984 Flying V that is as Fat as a Les Paul that I installed a Floyd Rose and locking nut .Painted like Judas Priest Black & White just a little different.

    I hear ya. For years I used a Boss Comp/Sustain pedal because when I played a "clean" solo, I felt I was fighting myself during the whole solo for sustain it was so damn choppy. But I finally woke up and got into tube screamers, Ibanez of course. Now I run my TS-9 before my Boss Overdrive/Distorion pedal so I can use clean or with distortion. The TS-9 is for a boost. If you notice, alot of the tele and strat players are into Tube Screamers. SRV for one.
