Hi everyone.  I'm GAS wasted right now.  

My dad took back his strat and now I only have one electric guitar.  But I'd like another guitar to keep at home since I keep my main one at my office (the white MIM strat with Texas Specials).  I'd love to buy an older USA strat but it's out of my budget right now.

And stuck deciding between a g&l, a strat, a tele, ltd st203, or a epi lp.  I'd like to be as cheap of a miser as possible and still have a reliable instrument to perform with. 

Any guitars you recommend that are "insane values".  I will only be playing blues, pop, and rock tunes btw.


Cheers!

Hi JJ, I sent you another email about not being able to start new threads and mentioned the particulars of navigating the Rondo site.
Go to http://www.rondomusic.com and sort through the Agiles the way I suggested in the email and you may find something that fits
your budget.Check out the site and see if any of tele or strat copies fit the bill.

Cheers, J

Hey JJ, if you're looking for a Strat, I'm trying to help a relative sell 2 of them for reasonable. 1 is a candy red MIM with a Mighty Mite replacement neck and a Duncan JB jr, bridge PU, the other is a total custom build. PM me if interested, one is advertised on reverb.com the will be going up as soon as I can get a demo up for it.

Also I checked rondo, but it's saying that the strat style won't be available until 2016? Or is that just the custom shop stuff?

I'll look again when I get a chance, maybe I misread something...

They are!  The cherry burst was a new build and was never played beyond testing and a demo I did. The MIM Strat has been played, but is VERY clean, both cases are , for all intents and purposes, new.

Ok players, I didn't forget about this thread.  Just kept patiently looking for deals.

I finally pulled the trigger today and did a 180 from the strat and snagged up a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro in honeyburst.

I got it from Guitar Center used section, but it looks super clean and basically new.  You know it's something special when you pick it up to play (at GC) and all of the strings are in tune.

That's never happened to me before.

I would be posting pics and a sound sample but... I have to wait 2 more days to take it home since its used and hasn't cleared the pawn shop law.

Ok, I've been lagging, but here is a pic of the new les Paul. I'll try to attach some quick clips with the fender Mustang I got too.

Congrats. Nothing beats a new guitar day , with the exception of more than one.
Post more pics and maybe a soundclip or two.
Cheers, J
