    Yeah, in my IMO, you can't get a better bang for your buck than a Vox.

    As for the Takamine...start saving now. :)

    Got a new 0% for a year CC on the way to start rebuilding some credit and get some free airfare, so I can get it now and pay it off in a couple months. The one I saw at Guitar Center the other day went about $850, so not too bad. I know I will probably fall in love with the Takamine, but want to try the split saddle first as I get a bit rough with strumming. Actually knocked the e off the saddle on my Fender once when I got a bit to aggressive with a strum style i was messing with.

    As for the Vox, I completely agree. Almost bought a Marshall for 2x the price, and glad I didn't. I have the VT40, which is more than enough to rock out my little pad.

    Any mandolin players? Was down at my local shop this evening, played around with a couple, and really enjoyed them. Thinking of getting one now...

    Learning "Two Step" by DMB. Fun song to play.

    Still working on transitioning to/from Bar F chord. I have always cheated and used index finger on high E and B string (1st fret), middle finger on G string (2nd fret) and ring finger on D string (3rd fret). I have no issue playing it that way

    I'm looking at picking up a 2012 HSS strat in the original hard case for $650. It has stock fat 50s neck and middle pickups, and a stock humbucker bridge pickup. The bridge humbucker can split into a single coil.

    Anything I should be concerned about? Price looks like it's in the right ballpark.

    Seems reasonable as long as its in good shape. You probably won't see one for under $500, and that would be a helluva deal.

    Yeah... the seller is local, so I'll go see it before I buy it, but it's only had one owner.

    I've been looking for a while and the only deals I've seen under $550 are MIMs. I've also seen a few American standards under $600 with humbucking bridge coils, but with tex-mex single coils in the middle and neck. Not sure why they'd be a little cheaper, but I'm guessing that's because you lose that classic strat sound with the tex-mex coils.

    Even if I'm buying it used, I'd have to play it before I bought it. I doubt the seller would mind if you took it for a spin. You can discover/rule out any issues that way.

    Hell, for under $600, just buy new pickups. So, you're getting a fair deal I think.

    I sold three of those maybe 6-7 years ago and that's right around what I got for them iirc. Mine were mint condition (guitars and hard cases). Two were 2000 or 2001 models. The other was a 1996 or so, when they were called Lone Star strats. Great guitars, but I fell in love with my Les Paul...There may still be pics of them earlier in this thread.

    edit: pics of the two newer ones are on page 3. pic of the third one has been lost in the intertubes apparently...
