    Got home with my slightly over budget guitar and amp to receive a phone call about 10 minutes later from the restorer to tell me the doors were full of filler and rust and new ones would make more sense. They cost quite a lot :(
  2. Well you've still got a handlebar moustache @Jack Tatty . That's a start...

  3. Ah! Now I see, because you were talking about a fender (strat, tele or a.n other?), I was thinking guitar pick up, not THE Pick up :)

  4. Yes mate, that's true.....still, bike will probably be on back burner til new year. Am happy with my "impulse" buy but still feel a bit "What have I done?!?!?"
  5. Meanwhile I put on my lycra and rode a whole mile today - half of which was downhill. I'm a HORSE of a man.

  7. Hopefully, it's bloody loud that's for sure :D
  8. I think my wife has bought one today she just phoned me and said shes on her menstrual cycle
  9. Always need a wheel upgrade if it only cost a grand or so...;)
  10. I've only risen it (the road bike) once since June so probably couldn't justify any upgrade ... fallen a little out of love with it since my mate was killed whilst road cycling in July and I just don't seem to have the time. A Guitar is much safer. Still going mountain biking though so the other two bikes get a run out.

    Strat - American HSS :D
  12. Lovely. I love strats, an absolute design classic. Maple or rosewood neck? Better still, wait til Santa gives it you on Christmas morning and you can post some pics :thumbsup:

  14. Good man Bern, mines rosewood too.

  15. How about changing the title of the thread to "I was going to by a road bike, but I bought a guitar instead" ;)
