Haha, yes indeed. My first custom took about two years in the end, though not all of that was their fault. This one's taken almost as long though, because I ordered it in mid-2016, and it feels like they've been saying soon for ages too. It sounds like it should actually be finished this weekend though, but I don't know then how long things like international shipping and customs clearance usually take. So we'll see.

I think at this point, they've probably sent a number of guitars to Thailand, so you have nothing to worry about... unless they can't find the house again

I respectfully disagree!

Oh right. One fuck was given, but just for #details.

But I don't think it was a topic of interest to most people until more recently.

Well, I'm sure you're aware im not a big guy, so big heavy guitars have always been an issue for me, especially when I started playing. Back then getting a good guitar without spending big money was very difficult.

Now listen here son. I've been playing since the 60s and....

Wait.

But yes, I can understand that. What were the options at the time? I know your first 'good' guitar was the MIJ Strat, and I wouldn't think that's a terribly heavy one, but like you say... there were FAR less affordable good quality ones back then.

Well, I'm not sure what the options were really like then, I was only 10 when I got my first guitar. But basically, there were a LOT of plywood Strat copies around!

Squires were about but the pricing of those would have been what you'd get a Mexican Strat for these days.

Behold, the plywood beauty that is my first Encore strat copy!

edit: James, if my math is correct, you're only three years older than my guitar

FWIW, my MIJ is way lighter than the Encore, but its still pretty weighty.

Continuing the old man discussion, I found an Arogs catalogue page from around 1995:



In today's money, that Encore would cost ~200, and the Squier would be 370!

Did you get it new? Those pickups look proper aged

How thick is the veneer on the MIJ? I'm guessing it's not thick enough to add any significant weight to it

And what you really need is a guitar from your birth year. Like sherpa_man and his 1981 LP customs... which I believe he no longer owns. #NorlinEra
