I think a limit of 5 at a time is wise :D

This is my latest... I traded a Squire with a Floyd and Humbucker that I couldn't adjust the neck on for it at the pawn shop. It really plays nicely and sounds great. The frets are taller than I like and I intend on replacing the neck with a maple fretboard from Warmoth eventually... for now, though, it's a nice little axe.

The pickguard is mirrored... didn't like it at first, but it grows on you.

Okay, so I sold that black Squire and my Ibanez bass to pay for the family to go to the fair. The fair is a family tradition and more important than my 'stuff' so it had to go.

The pawnshop guy felt bad and threw in a $50 frankenstrat... after a bit of adjusting, it plays and sounds great. It's part Samick and part Fender Strat. I was shocked that is sounded to good!

I had to remove the neck because the action at the nut was perfect but the action at the other end was nearly double that... a quick shim (and noticing the holes in the neck and been filled and re-drilled to fit this body) and it was good to go. I like the 'relic' look of it, and it's very comfortable... not bad for a cheap axe.

Just because it looked like such a beat up, garbage, axe. It looked like the thing you could win at the fair by getting a ring to land on a bottle (by the way I tried that at the fair and failed)... it just didn't look like a quality instrument.

After I shimmed the neck and plugged it in, I realized the only difference was the neck, I should know better thant to judge a book by it's cover.

I was just informed yesterday that I won the Speed and Accuracy challenge by Metal Method so I'll be receiving Dog Marks' Dean Vendetta guitar in a week or so...

Danny, I've never had a neck-thru guitar or one that was professionally set up, so I'm really looking forward to it.

The contest was a kick in the ass that got me focused on specific practice on a daily basis and helped tremendously. I have a really bad habit of getting sidetracked easily and don't focus enough. Since I only play for fun it's really no big deal, but this challenge did wonders.

Yes sir... when looking at the strap button on the tail end of the guitar you can see the difference in the wood as the "binding" is actually just a stripe of the natural wood.

This is from the Dean site:
