    Just bought a Fender Player Stratocaster HSS (buttercream), which I love (a few issues, but most of which I got sorted), and a Squier CV70 Stratocaster HSS (black), which I like quite a bit (I'll like it more when I deal with the sticky feeling of the neck). The main / only issues are buzzy / rattling D and G strings, likely needing a string tree. The CV70 has a stickiness like no other. The gloss is probably the worst in terms of stickiness I think I've ever used. That aside, the guitar plays well, is a nice weight (not too heavy or too light). The stock pickguard on the Player is great (better than I thought it'd be), and I might not swap the whole shebang for the pickups, etc. in my signature. The CV70s has a good pickguard, and I probably will swap it out.

    It actually is an off the wall american strat :lol: It's the new top of the line USA production model. There just aren't many of these out there yet, this is one of the first ones I've seen that isn't a preorder.

    It IS an off the wall American Strat, but happens to be the legitimate new top model in that line; which is why I thought it was a CS so I can't seem to win.

    I got a loaded pickguard from EMG's custom shop, and they...

    Sent the fucking output jack with what appears to my soldering inept ass as a bridged connection between two of the lugs (or whatever they are). Now I get to deal with them sending me a new one, because I will be DAMNED if I spend 70 bucks for a wiring kit just for the damn output jack.

    You could always cut the bridged connection...

    Not how it's wired. It would cut one of the wires.

    It has been a great week for gear for me. I picked up a carvin legacy 2x12 combo for $500 and a hughes and kettner switchblade with the sc412 mkii cab for 450$.

    I have always wanted a legacy but for whatever reason I never had the cash on hand to buy one when the popped up for sale. The years have gone by and they have only gotten more expensive, so I am beyond happy that I was able to get one for a really great price.

    the H&K switchblade has always been interesting to me. There aren't really any good/recent demos of it but I took a chance on it and I really enjoy it so far.

    Thinking about a bass that a guitarist can play easily enough, plus an amp. Might just need a head and use this Orange PPC412 with the 4 GK100's in them. I think it was designed for the bass/guitar Thunderverb 200....? IDK, I'll take "don't buy another cab if you don't have to" for $200, Alex.

    I don't think those speakers can handle bass, as far as I can tell they're guitar only. Almost all guitar speakers can't handle the low end a bass produces.

    That said, I see bass cabs going for pennies used locally. A guitar head into a bass cab is wicked. I used my 6505 into an 8x10 when I played bass in a band and it was awesome.
