    I haven’t played guitar since I emigrated to Australia a little over 10 years ago. I sold a couple to help raise cash for the move and haven’t bought a new one since. 

    However, we were visiting my family in Wales in December and my 5 year old son was digging through some boxes that I’d packed up but never shipped. Inside one was my first guitar, the only one I still have. It’s a crappy old Hohner that I was given for my birthday 30+ years ago. It’s certainly seen better days but I love it. It’s hard to describe, but it just feels nice. The neck is a perfect shape, and it has a nice warm sound, although it is a little quiet.

    (Apologies in advance for lowering the tone after so many beautiful photos in this thread!  =) )





    I guess the point is that, after uncovering my old guitar and then finding this thread for the first time, maybe it’s time to pick one up and start again. 
    That's awesome, man!!!
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    I put a new pickguard, new roasted maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard, locking tuners, tusq nut, string saver saddles, black knobs, string trees, and Klein 1959 pickups in my 1996 strat this week. This was my first guitar. She is playing better than ever after this overhaul.

    I assume the pick guard is anodized aluminum. Have you noticed any difference in noise or hum through your amp since you changed it?

    Well, the old pickups were lace sensor noiseless except the bridge was a duncan so the fact I went for a more vintage sound with the Klein 1959's means there is more naturally occuring feedback/hum anyways but I don't think the pickguard made a big sonic difference really.
