I have spent a few sick days now, thinking about my guitar playing, and setting goals.
I set myself this goals:
Complete the Metal Method DVDs.
Be able to play The Unforgiven by Metallica to FULL extent with solo, and NO flaws.
I found that it would be a good goal to have for a 8-9months.
The price will be a guitar I will give myself, so I have something to look forward too I like Strats, and dont want another Superstrat yet, instead I want a real Fender Stratocaster.
I have some demands:
Vintage White or Olympic white or perhaps Surf Green.
Rosewood board (ONLY maple if Surf Green).
Usable whammy nar.
With hardcase (Or can be gotten by the side)
A guitar that can take touring, and a guitar I could use and pass on to my kids. A guitar of quality and craftsmanship.
70s head is a thing I like alot, but can be gotten without it.
If it could be gotten, XJ or Jumbo frets are a plus.
I am gonna modify the guitar later to put DiMarzio HS-3s in it, and a Brass nut for tuning stability.
I am willing to spend 2650 Dollars on it. I have looked at 5 different guitar, each with its own quality.
Some mexicos that have cons and pros.
An AM standard.
A Yngwie Signature, which has all the features, but the con is the scalloped neck, which I dunno is a good idea?
And the dream strat (from pictures) AM Vintage 62 Stratocaster in Vintage White. It costs 2300 bucks, and I just love its looks etc.
But which strat would be the ultimate out of my specs?
