For anyone not using 'GHS Fast Fret' I highly recommend trying it. I started using it a couple of years ago (been playing on and off for about 15 yrs) and now I can't play without it. http://www.amazon.com/GHS-A87-Fast-F.../dp/B0002D0CQC

here's me and my new axe:
I used to rock one of their electrics at a guitar shop I worked at-- this was back in the early 90s when no one knew what to make of 'em...I've always been the guy that likes guitars that aren't Les Pauls or Strats though-- got an affinity towards "weird" ones-- that said, as the years have gone on, I'm starting to find that there is something extremely powerful about playing rhythms on a Paul or leads on a Strat...
Anyhow-- you should get some Django licks going on that Godin-- seems like it'd be a fun Gypsy Jazz box!
I do need to swap out the pickups at some point-- the stock ones are "Duncan Designed"-- meaning, of course, low end Seymour Duncans-- the problem is (from my research) that apparently the wiring in it is combined with the Piazo pickup-- and from what I've gathered, is NOT something that an amateur should play around with--
I'll get around to it eventually-- and the Pickups aren't the WORST, but they could stand some improvement. Just thought I'd mention the difficultly in swaping P/Us out, in case someone from the Google Machine happens to wander into this thread.
97 Fender American Standard Telecaster
01 Gibson SG Standard
Fender Corgan Signature Stratocaster
Early 70s Martin D28 (I bought it from a guy I used to work with. I really don't know the actual year on the model. It's had a lot of work done to it so it doesn't really matter much anyway)
I've got a couple of Fender amps, a reissue Twin and a broken Blues Jr.
I play Roto Yellows on the electrics but don't have a string preference for the acoustic.
"Sh - no - brick"
I have a Fender acoustic that I bought as a birthday present to myself in March. I'm by no means a good technical player--I'm mostly only good for some strumming and finger picking--but know enough to be able to sing at some open mic nights. I've dabbled in writing songs, but I don't think I'm particularly good at it.
I also have a Squire electric, stored at my parents, but I never really got a taste for player electric.
I started out playing bass in bands in high school, but haven't played much in years. I still have an acoustic 4-stringer sitting around in case I ever get in the mood to groove, but don't have the time for a band.
