Putting together a strat-type as backup for my jem
I was just thinking the other day about a couple of problems I have with my jem, i.e. not being able to drop tune, having to be careful with it (don't want a scratch on it lol), and the possibility of not being able to take it to uni.
I then had the thought of putting together a strat (easiest to get those parts round here) or something with fairly similar specs. Something like an alder strat body with evos in it for a similar sound, standard fender bridge for the drop tunings and stuff. Could even dress it up a bit so it looks like my 7vwh (tho I wouldn't go put a monkey grip on it or anthing like that).
And of course, because it'd be a comparatively cheap-ass strat, I could chuck it about and not care hehe.
