Hello folks,

I've just been looking at the specs of my SRV Strat

It says that the finish is "Tinted Nitrocellulose Lacquer". Is this the same finish that the old guitars used to have that age nicely if you play the pants off them? Or is it a modern crappy version?

Hello folks,

I'm going to put 10s back on my SRV Strat, I had 12s on but an injury sustained while it was at the luthier having it set for 12s at full step down tuning seems to have caused some permanent nerve damage, which means I can't bend the 12s if I tune up to standard tuning.

I will be using it for standard, down half step and down full step tuning. Would I be best to set it to suit half step down tuning allowing tuning up and down or what do you recommend?

Thanks for looking

What do you think about this? They're making some bold claims.

I can't see it being very good myself, be nice if they prove me wrong.

Around four times the cost of the Asian version, and around the price of a Gibson ES330

What do you think? Personally is go for the Asian version.

Original lesson: Blues - get that shuffle by Gabriel Leopardi

Okay, this isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination but I need to try to overcome my "rec for rec syndrome", I've overcome my "rec for mentor syndrome" but this is the next level. When I played this at 80% speed, Gab said it would have been a 10 in REC Zone, I've been working really really hard trying to get it to 100% and got it pretty close, obviously this take isn't my best but I know you have to judge it for what it is. I initially learnt it using alternate/econ picking then I noticed that in the lesson Gab was using all down picking so I re-learnt it. I ain't no James Hetfield that's for sure. Any advice greatly received. It's also my first level 4 REC and it was much harder than I expected. Thanks
