Hey. I'm Chris, and I'm new to this commune. I am a strat slinger, and was wondering if there were any others like me out there. I've been addicted to playin' blues for aout 5 years now. Nothin' but the blues. Actually, as of recently, I've been listening to just as much Metallica as blues because I love Kirk Hammet's Lead work, but I'm blues at heart. Currently I have two strats. One is a Mexican's 60's that I've decked the shit out of, New pickups, jumbo frets, new bridge block, saddles, and the other is an 87 Jap Standard with jumbo frets, and it is the shit. I never put that fucker down. My 60's is kinda left out, but that Jap has a better sound and quality than any American model i've played, and it only cost $400. Anywhoo, any other strat slingers out there, comment. I'd like to get to know a few more.
