    Just like the title says! What guitar are you currently playing? Post videos or pictures. I am currently playing my Aria Pro II PE LUX guitar.

    this'n. swapped the black pearloid guard for a white one and adjusted the action a little and put a new set of 010's on it; like the way it looks and feels better now. wanted to swap the bridge out with a mim stock one i have laying around but it didn't want to fit in the bridge pickup routing with the ff pickup and i like that pickup better than the mim stock one (which looked like it would have fit). i probably could have finagled it one way or another to work but it wasn't worth the trouble, nothing serious wrong with this bridge i guess.

    Getting ready to swap the pups and wiring and wanted a little 'before' time. The more I play it the more I'm reminded how much I'm looking forward to 'after.'

    I fall a little more in love with her every time I play her.

    That is a beautiful guitar. I don't usually ask this but is that a heavy guitar? I was wondering because I have never really played a 3 humbucker guitar before.

    Thanks! It's really not. I'd guess it's somewhere around 8.5 lbs.

    when i'm at my brother's house here in El Paso, I get to play two superb guitars. A Gibson ES-175 and a FSR Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster, which is hands down the best Strat I've EVER played.

    I freaking love this Strat. It has fantastic locking tuners. A roller nut. A silky smooth trem that pops in, rather than screwing in. And it has many tonal varieties available.

    I could see getting rid of all my Strats and just getting one of these. My ONLY issue is the color scheme. I don't like painted headstocks on Fenders. And just overall, I don't love the looks of this guitar. But it destroys other Strats, including Custom Shops I've played.

    • Model Name: American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar
    • Series: American Deluxe Series
    • Body: select alder with contoured heel and body
    • Neck: maple, modern "C" shape, satin urethane finish
    • Fingerboard: maple or rosewood (depending on the color)
    • Nut: LSR roller nut
    • Controls: master volume, Tone 1. (neck pickup), Tone 2. no-load tone control (middle and bridge pickups)
    • Pickup switching: 5-position blade
    • Bridge: Fender Deluxe 2-point Synchronized Tremolo with pop-in arm
    • Machine heads: Fender Deluxe Staggered Cast/Sealed locking tuning machines
    • Hardware: chrome
    • Unique features:
    • Compound-radius fretboard
    • 1 Fender humbucking pickup (bridge), Strat pickups (middle/neck)
    • Locking tuning machines
    • LSR roller nut
    • Contoured heel and body

    Any chance you'd want to get rid of the black peraliod guard you took off? It would look awesome on my orange firefly tele. If so, PM me. Thanks.

    My new Duo-Sonic has seen the most play the last few days, but my American standard and PRS SE get played daily.

    Unfortunately i no longer have it as i traded that one for this one. It is weird they chose black pearl for the green with white binding and white pearl for the orange with black binding.

    Oh that’s not bad at all! It’s too bad Tokai is not more accessible in the US. They make some beautiful instruments.

    I've been really digging this Dinky lately. I tuned it down a whole step.
