    I've been working through this whole thing, so I've been getting lots of OT, Per Diem and Travel Bonuses to inspect fire protection systems in big box stores and grocery chains all over NY. With that added income, I was able to acquire my 2014 Kestrel Bass, Boss GT-6B Pedal System, Boss Katana Mini Amp, Those are my favorites so far. I have also been able to get new tires, a few engine modifications, and Rear Spoiler for my Mustang.

    It’s the production version. #41! It’s really a beautiful, well made instrument, and I can’t imagine the Custom Shop version being miles better for that price. That’s major money. Maybe you could snag a second hand one from someone who wanted a more “mainstream” Strat.

    Yeah no need for one at the moment but I'll keep an eye out for the future. I have a 2005 EJ strat but these new ones look cool too

    Oohhh! Looking good! Tempted but I hate buying a power amp just for a cabinet. But if I wait for a powered cab, it will take too many years for them to sell it!

    Well, unfortunately the lockdown has also locked down my bank account, since the Ginger Goddess' work has come to a screeching halt.

    However, someone who shall remain nameless... @Alnus Rubra :pwas kind enough to do some shopping for me! He sent me an SE245 completely out of the blue! Hands down the most selfless, thoughtful and cool thing anyone has ever done for me...and it's so undeserved on my part. But I am forever greateful for it none the less!!!

    Needless to say the 245 has definitely found it's forever home!

    ...oh, wait...I never went on lockdown. :oops: There’s a bunch of great buys in this pic that I relied on last week for an extremely distanced festival in the boonies of Indiana...

    I bought a maple neck DC3. I got the single coil sound I want, with the PRS fingerboard radius, bigger frets, and the fantastic PRS trem. Absolutely a keeper for this humbucker guy. And yes,Sergio, it’s blue.

    They've stated publicly that they're bringing out a powered version. Your guess is as good as mine as to when as you know.
    It's fantastic, that's for sure.

    Either my Strymon Flint or RYRA Klone (or the combo of them). I can switch from my amp to headphone rig at night and keep sorta the same experience. Sorta.

    The parlor acoustic is my only significant gear purchase during the lockdown. A few plugins and a couple new cables, but that's about it. Looks like we're going to be in this for a little while, though, so there's time.
